Why should desi women have all the fun?

Lehengas, palazzos, sarees, salwars, half-sarees, co-ord sets, and many more. The ethnic fashion for women has no limitations. Despite not being varied, ethnic menswear has evolved significantly in the past ten years. A few decades ago, men’s ethnic fashion game was just a kurta!
Men are still showing up for weddings and puja ceremonies in shirts, t-shirts, and kurtas (only a few) despite the market offering so many different styles! We want to change the trend and give men all the choices they deserve, and more!
Because why should women have all the fun. Right?
So, let’s dive right into the world of fashionable and stylish ethnic menswear.

  1. Jodhpuri – Jodhpuri is one of the most popular choices for grooms as well as for groomsmen! Jodhpuris were initially worn by people of the Jodhpur region. This ensemble includes a coat, trousers, and a vest. It resembles a western suit in Indian fashion. Grooms should choose jodhpuris in fabrics like brocade or velvet for a more festive look. Both cotton and silk jodhpuris are great options for groomsmen!
  2. Bandi, also known as sadri, has long been a part of our culture. It
    is a sleeveless vest jacket worn over a shirt or a kurta. Wear a sadri in a different colour than
    the kurta for a more festive look, or keep it simple by wearing the bandi and
    kurta in the same color. Bandis can be designed in various colours and fabrics to create different looks for different occasions.
  3. Bandhgala – Famously known as the Nehru Jacket, Bandhgala has a mandarin collar, front buttons, and high shoulders. You can layer it up by choosing the same colours like the classic black on black, or play it up with motifs. For a sophisticated, traditional, and vintage look, pair it up with a contrasting pocket square and crisp dhoti pants.
  4. Kurta – Though this style is not new or trendy, it is definitely a classic choice for any occasion. When it comes to fabric and style, there is a lot of room for experimentation. Silk, cotton, linen, and chikankari are the most loved fabrics for kurtas. With the help of your designer, you may give your outfit special touches like a new collar style, a different button configuration, or asymmetrical cuts! If you don’t want to go through the hassle of finding a designer and working with them, you can just visit us for ready-to-wear designer kurtas; those are definitely head-turners.
  5. Pathani – This is nothing but a kurta-style tunic paired with salwaar (loosely gathered trousers). Most pathanis have collars and pockets on the kurta, and people prefer to keep the ensemble a monochrome look. You can experiment with various colours according to the event you are attending. You can also style a pathani with a bandi for a more festive look.
  6. Sherwani – This button-down front and waist-constrained ensemble is the ultimate choice for grooms. The sherwani, when worn with a churidar, exudes a majestic air unlike any other ethnic attire. Mostly worn for the wedding ceremony, you can experiment with patterns and intricate embroidery. You can also complete the suit with a contrasting dupatta for a more regal appearance.

Though the number of outfits might not be overwhelming, we can definitely experiment with each of the above styles to create new looks! At Mokshaa, we want our grooms and groomsmen to compete with the brides and bridesmaids in fashion and perhaps, win! That’s why we keep creating and curating fresh styles for ethnic menswear so that you are pleasantly surprised at the variety with every visit.
