Andamen: When a shirt company’s logo is inspired by Rajan, an ocean-swimming elephant of the Andamans, we’re already fans. Pack(yderm) us five of their finest shirts, and we’re ready to go! Beautifully blending the Indian aesthetic with contemporary sensibilities, the Andamen team “frets over every stitch” to make sure Indian men are dressed right. We’re starry eyed about Stellar, their summer collection inspired by India’s space journey. It employs quality yarns, space dyed techniques, hand-made embroidery, special weaves and asymmetrical textures to create 17 conceptual shirts, including Antariksh Yatree, inspired by India’s first cosmonaut. Far out!
Herringbone & Sui: Gentlemen, this is where you go when you want a Savile Row quality suit cut at Indian prices, crafted from the best fabrics including Alpaca and Vicuna. Founded in 2015 in Colaba, the fine lads at Herringbone & Sui have just opened up a third made-to-measure store in a gorgeous Bandra bungalow – includes a bar and cigar room! - that we want to call our home. Here, and at their other stores + online, they sell suits, shirts, trousers, Indian wear, as well as accessories. With bespoke suits that start at Rs 25,000, Herringbone & Sui has become a regular sight in men’s closets, but what they’re also great at is hand crafting Indian wear – they do some serious Zardozi, Ari and Chikan work - for weddings that are right around the corner.
Remember, a few LVMH honchos who ordered in for themselves, turned into investors so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you! “We have plans to open at least 10 more stores across India in the next two years,” founders Samarth and Kabir tell us. Here’s to world domination.
Tailorman: This made-to-measure brand stands at the forefront of luxury menswear and superior quality. While fit plays a pivotal role in guiding Tailorman's brand philosophy, their fabrics are sourced from some of the finest international mills such as Zegna, Loro Piana, Scabal, as well as premium Asian mills.
Their showrooms in Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai (opening soon in Delhi!) offer a premium experience through exceptional styling advice and unparalleled service. And to cater to the roving gentleman, their Traveling Tailor option, reaches customers in the comfort of their home or office.
