A fusion of the British frock-coat and Achkan, the Sherwani has always been associated with royalty and aristocracy. Formal and handsomely elegant, they exude an aura that is hard to define. From the unadorned black sherwanis worn by the likes of Nehru to intricately embroidered sherwanis that are popular with grooms, this ensemble has had many variants over the last century and a half. With young men today evincing an interest in an outfit that once occupied pride of place in their grandfathers’ wardrobes, sherwanis have increasingly become bolder, more colourful, and sharply silhouetted. No-one demonstrates this better than the Anita Dongre collection of designer sherwanis for men. While some of the sherwani’s feature classic details such as Mandarin collars, embroidery, and brocade work, others have unique features such as a concealed placket, mother-of-pearl buttons, and collars embellished with zardosi work. Made of luxurious silks, most of the ensembles in the range are wedding sherwani sets or those for strictly formal occasions. The palette of colours available – deep maroon, emerald green, and cobalt blue, as well as understated pastels such as powder pink and white – adds versatility to the collection. You may purchase these Anita Dongre men’s sherwanis online. Alternately, you may visit any of the Anita Dongre outlets and buy the sherwani of your choice.

From the Fashion Sage’s Mouth
Princely and royal in appearance, our sherwanis call for styling that befit their richness. For example, our emerald green Mohur Sherwani is an apt choice for a royal Indian wedding. Made of silk, this sherwani features a Mandarin collar and concealed placket with a single chest pocket. Pair it with off-white tapered trousers and our embroidered shoes to accentuate its resplendence. Groomsmen, an off-white pocket square and a matching green turban will seal your look to perfection. If you are the groom yourself, do not think twice before choosing the plum Simal Sherwani. This wedding sherwani captures, all at once, the opulence that our weddings are all about. Team this with beige silken trousers and our hand-embroidered shoes. Top off the look with a beige pocket square in silk and a matching plum turban adorned with a diamond-encrusted feather turban brooch.
