The Ultimate Grooms Wear

By Sanhati Banerjee

The most enviable groom’s wear, sherwanis are an exercise in royal taste, heritage craftsmanship and a subtle aura. Here’s more to this timeless classic.


Of anything ever is so custom made to make the groom-to-be look like a prince, it has to be a sherwani. This ethnic wear has always brought a curious mix of anticipation and excitement in men. Much like a suit, a sherwani calls for perfect fitting and to add to it the perfect mix of accessories so as to retain its grandeur and wedding-wear aura.
Sherwani makes the groom-to-be stand out, it makes him look taller and accentuates his frame. It is not only a preferred room-wear but also tops the choice of the groom’s man and his friends. Moreover, it is an exclusive wear and looks best when it is done in a traditional manner. It is a showstopper wedding attire for men and in the contemporary times when fashion is caught in crossing-over trends, designer sherwanis for elegant party wear are also something men are turning to. With contemporary sherwanis offering a combination of traditional embroidery and motifs along with a bit of innovation in terms of offbeat colours, subtle works and versatile cuts, it can be said that sherwanis are taking over the would-be-groom’s wardrobe like never before. A sherwani can be paired with a churidar, churidar-pants or a salwar. At times, it might be worn along with a dhoti or dhoti-pants as well. The dress is made from luxurious fabrics, like Jamavar silks and ornate brocades, has a close body fit and is fastened in the front, with buttons. A kurta is worn underneath a sherwani. In a modern-cut sherwani, it is not closed from the top, rather it is kept open and has a collar-cut.

Trends to Tap
As far as the hottest trends are concerned, sherwanis done in tonal embroidery in rich and luxurious fabrics like silks, brocades, tulle etc as well as sherwanis depicting discreet craftsmanship are two of the major latest runway looks for sherwanis. Bling is definitely out as put aptly by Gaurav Om Chabbra, owner of GOC, “Sherwanis created in a riot of colours or a burst of mismatched designs, in short screaming out loud in the name of fusion have definitely no takers amongst the sophisticated, global grooms of today exposed to a subtle taste in wardrobe. Classics are the best when it comes to sherwanis.” Designer Pawan Sachdeva suggests kalidaar sherwani for this season of weddings. He further says, “The ‘in’ sherwani is in a combination of one and more colours. The work is very traditional and a personal touch is added by adding a tinge of colour of the lehenga of the bride-to-be.”

Up, Close and Personal
As for the royal look, designer Pawan says “since it is a royal outfit it should be worn in a way that it reflects royalty. The wedding sherwani can be accompanied by a long kurta and multi churi churidaar. It can be perfectly complimented with a custom made jutti, a safa or head gear and a stole. For the grooms who further want a princely look, a special cover that is fully embroidered in the same manner as the sherwani is also recommended for the sword. A custom-made kalangi enhances the safa of the would-be-groom.” Sudhir Diwan, owner of Diwan Saheb,
says, “ A stole — scarf or dupatta in darkish shades of maroon, gold or the sophisticated off-white is recommended to pair with the wedding sherwani. Matching juttis and embellished belts are also important accessories that can enhance the look.”

Crafting the Look
Embroidery including thread work, hand work, patch work, dabka, zari, zarzozi and embellishments of stones, beads and sequins are being extensively used to craft festive-wedding sherwanis. Sudhir Diwan says, “Jamavar silk is extremely sought after in fabrics and cream is a colour that has found a favourable audience. It is ideal for pre-wedding function as well as the main ceremony of wedding. In the new age, bandhgala sherwanis are definitely in vogue.” Gaurav Chabbra recommends straight-cut sherwanis with good placement of work, embroidery on the collar and soothing pastel shades for the summer. He also recommends Angrakhas for weddings. Contemporary sherwanis are stitched in a variety of styles, patterns and designs. Woven silks, crepes, brocades, crinkled tissues, tussars embellished with gold, zardozi, antique work, beads and mirrors are the most favoured fabrics for wedding sherwanis. The embellishments usually used in the manufacturing of designer sherwanis are beads, mirrors, sequins and resham threads. Sherwanis contain diverse embroidery works like dabka, kundan, zari, sequins and Swarovski crystal in fashionable shades of yellow, magenta and even the bridal offbeat ones — black and greys.

The Classic & The Couturesque
Custom-made sherwanis like custommade dresses are also fast catching up with the discerning audience. A custom-made sherwani takes into account the wearer’s personality, build, physical attributes like complexion and taste in fashion. Such a sherwani also has a place for innovation in terms of embroidery and colour. However, remember, it’s very easy to give in to the flow and get all your favourite designs and colours on board making it look like a veritable display of your mood board. So, exercise moderation and leave the best to the craftsman who knows how to blend all the elements well. Designer sherwanis are given a contemporary look with innovative cuts and tonal embroidery work to lend it a fusion look of subtle luxury. The work, look and feel remain the same in these global-style inspired sherwanis, just the appearance gets a modern twist. However, even if you go for these little bits of innovation and fine couture, remember never to compromise on the classic sherwani, as it’s the ultimate test of a royal sherwani and a tasteful groom!

Grooming for Grooms
Choose a well-fitted sherwani – one that complements your body frame. Confused with the mindboggling varieties?
Stick to the basics. Do not over-or-under accessorize. Keep in mind that your sherwani should stand out, and if possible, choose sophisticated tones as friends generally tend to go for louder ones with lots of bling. You can do a bit of colour coordination with your bride-to-be, as after all, you are going to be together in all the photographs and a bit of smart coordination will make for visual delight.
