The Bandhgala is a type of jacket that features an erect and closed collar. It can either have long sleeves or also be sleeveless. It is basically a royal costume and today a must-have in the wardrobe of every urban man. The Bandhgala has literally changed the way today’s men dress by constantly re-introducing them the culture. It is a cross over between a suit and the Angarakha and Achakans. It is snug around the chest area and looks best in black or charcoal shades.
Bandhgala fit that matters
The cut and fit are the two fundamental aspects of any men’s wear. Just like a suit piece a Bandhgala is also all about the right fit. For the right fit, you can opt for a tailored design. Though initially popularized by the Indian royalty and political leaders like Late Jawaharlal Nehru, this ethnic wear for men continues to be prominent wear even today. When you plan to experiment with the Bandhgala, make sure you explore different textiles and fittings options available. The ideal length of Bandhgalas is usually dictated by your body type. But as a general rule, the length should end just at the root of the thumb when your arms rest against your body. Putting on a too long or too short jacket even if it is well-cut will spoil your entire look.
You can never go wrong with a Bandhgala suit, unless, your button it all the way to the top. This garment is slimming, elegant, very Indian and yet gives you an international appeal.
