The quintessential wedding outfit for the groom in one word is a sherwani. This outfit never goes out of fashion; rather, the cuts, styles and colours continuously add that extra edge over the rest of the wedding attires. Not to mention the fabric being used, since it is the ultimate determinant in what counts as a ‘win’ for the sherwani.
On this point, Lubnan’s main designer and director, Md Naimul Haque Khan mentions Jamawar as the fabric of choice for sherwanis. With variations in weaving, this type of fabric adds a touch of elegance. Dupion silk is another popular fabric. While various cuts and patterns are being observed, the slim cut is the most sought after, adds Khan. Mid length sherwanis appear to be the main choice for grooms. Necklines and cuff-lines are adorned with karchupi, zardozi, or with machine embroidery. For Jamawar, light work is the order of the way. Piping too is making a comeback. Of course, rather than heavily worked sherwanis, comfortable and contemporary patterns are more in fashion nowadays.
As for where to get the sherwani of choice, readymade ones are always available at Lubnan. In case the groom-to-be is looking for a bespoke full-set, that too is possible, given enough time.
