Charisma of Tussar Silk

If you own even half a dozen Nehru Jackets, we won’t be surprised at all if a Charismatic Tussar Silk Jacket is one of them. From family functions to weddings, men wear Tussar Silk Jackets with absolute pride. But while these Jackets are easy to come by, not many men know enough about this variety of silk. So if you already own a few or are planning to buy a Tussar Silk Jacket, there’s no time like now to learn all about them.

  1. Desi Tussar silk are also known by the Sanskrit name, Kosa Silk. They are made from silk that is produced from silk worms that breed on wild forest trees, not mulberry trees.
  2. A lot of India’s Tussar silk Jacket production happens in Jharkhand & Bihar. In fact, the silk weaving industry in this region goes back over a century! Hence, Jharkhand Silk Jackets are just as popular.
  3. Tribal women who are trained in the art of Tussar Silk weaving can produce about 10 metres of the silk cloth in around three days.
  4. Though cheaper than mulberry silk, a genuine Tussar silk Jacket will still cost you anywhere between Rs.3000 to Rs.4000.
  5. While Tussar is more textured than mulberry silk, its shorter fibers make it less durable. That said, the porous fabric makes Tussar a comfortable choice even in our warm Indian summers.
  6. Tussar silk Jackets have a natural dull gold colour, which make them a great choice for Indian weddings. We wouldn’t be surprised if you already have a few embroidered Tussar Jackets with nature-inspired motifs in your own wardrobe.
  7. Tussar silk Jackets are delicate and need to be dry cleaned only. Store them in muslin bags to allow the fabric to breathe.
  8. The test of a genuine Tussar Jacket is to burn the edges slightly. If it smells like burnt hair rather than just leaving a solid residue, you know you have an original.

Post from the Past! #SammyDavisJr

Sammy is particular.

He knows we don’t manufacture suits. We make them. Much the way a Savile Row tailor makes his.

Mostly by hand. We hand-cut the cloth. Then we shape it. And paste it. And sew it. And button-hole it. By hand.

In all we put an average of 30 more hand-shaping into our suits than you’ll find in other suits that cost as much. Or more. Why? Because it’s the only way to be sure that the suit will lit. Precisely.

So when a friend asks Sammy who his tailor is, he tells them. When they ask Sammy about his Nehru sul he tells them he had it made. And he’s not putting them on.

Right Way to Wear a Nehru Jacket!

Nehru jackets are the ‘new cool’ these days. Everyone seems to have flown in this fashion of stylish bandhgala jackets. But what is the most important thing here is that one should know the absolute right way to wear a Nehru jacket, in order to rock it stunningly. On what does it suit the best, what is the right kind shirt that goes with and what all does not go with it. Being stylish is one thing, but being stylish and looking stupid in another thing. You so not want to wear the most stylish and in-fashion jacket and end up making a complete fool of yourself, do you? Of course not!

Worry not! We are here to guide you with some useful tips on the right way to wear a Nehru jacket.

Here they are:

1.      Nehru jacket can be easily used to enhance your formal look. Pair it up with a formal shirt and a cool pair of trousers and don on a cool pair of moccasins. This is a killer look for those boring black and white board meetings and staff meetings. This look will help you to stand out in the crowd and appear stylish yet formal.

2.      So it’s the time of the wedding season and you must be having at least two or three wedding functions to attends, right? Pull out the Nehru jacket that you have and pair it up with a kurta and a nice pair of denims. This will not only make you look nice, but you might get some offers for wedding for yourself! Wear a cool watch and a pair of Jaipuri chappals to complete this amazing look.

3.      And while we are talking about the ethnic options to wear a Nehru jacket, why not consider wearing it over a dhoti? How cool would that be! And at the same time, traditional also. Pair it up with black sandals and walk the talk in style!

4.      The winter season is here in full bloom and you might want to consider using that long Nehru jacket to beta the chills. It is awesome and it is so stylish! You can simple use your Nehru jacket as a normal jacket and wear it to your work, to a party or even a casual walk. This look never fails to impress!

5.      You can use the Nehru jacket as a cover up for your flimsy and ill-fitting kurta too. Believe it or not, it works like a charm!

Nehru jacket is a really versatile piece of clothing. You can wear it on any occasion and pair it up with almost anything and everything. But you should do it right. Assess what look right on you regardless of what actors wear or what is expected by you.

Nehru jacket shouts comfort and if you sport it the right way, you will feel the most comfortable in a Nehru jacket and the most stylish person present in the room too!
