The sherwani for mens wear was born in the 18th century of a fusion of the British frock coat and the Indian Shalwar Kameez. Originally a symbol of nobility, it is now worn by any man wishing to look his best. Sherwani designs have become more elaborate and colorful in recent years, adding glamour to Indian men around the globe. The groom has a chance to sparkle and glow like the bride on his wedding day, creating a beautiful effect for both of them.
The sherwani is also appropriate for formal occasions, perhaps with less sparkle and embroidery. For a traditional approach to life, this garment speaks to the man who would celebrate his culture. Once available only from local tailors, the sherwani has gone global and is now available for men from America to Asia.
Wedding sherwanis are available in many colors and luxurious designs. Matching your sherwani to her lehengha or choosing a complementary color and design is best. Bride and groom will look marvelous together in their royal glitz. The purchase of a sherwani need not be an extravagance any longer with machine embroidery and modern fabrics. Men can be as fashionable and good looking as the women in their life with designer sherwanis embellished with sequins, stones, zari, zardosi or beads.
