Suit Your Style

JS Mo­hamedally

India Today - - COVER STORY -

This cen­tury old brand of menswear fab­rics is still one of the most pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions for suit and shirt lengths. Once a favourite haunt of crick­eters like Salim Dur­rani, this land­mark store in Kolkata’s Es­planade area, re­cently hosted a few mem­bers of the New Zealand’s cricket team over a quick shop­ping spree.

The fam­ily run store, JS Mo­hamedally is the cus­to­dian of all trends when it comes to menswear. They stock a range of cloth lengths of all kinds of fab­rics in­clud­ing poly­wool blend, poly cot­ton blends, 100 per cent cot­ton, 100 per cent linen. They also have a wide range of “ex­otic premium cot­ton” and stock ev­ery­thing from 170 to 300 count soft smooth cot­tons from Turkey, Italy Aus­tria and more. For suits, their range of colours is brighter than be­fore as men get more ex­per­i­men­tal. Other than the clas­sic blues, greys, browns and blacks, they have added a fun range that in­cludes ev­ery­thing from lemon yel­lows to baby pink to red and or­ange. "In pat­terns, checks and broad pin stripes are back in fash­ion," says part­ner Has­san Shaikh Es­mailb­hai.
