Suit Your Style
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.
