Sherwani for Knitman

Back Story
My friend Colin has developed a new clothing passion that happens to be one I share. He posted about it at the end of his blog entry yesterday and I made a silly reply that directed him to my saved draft but unpublished picture of a Sherwani designed by Armani for their haute couture show in India 2008.

Well, the link I gave him didn’t take him to the unpublished picture here at The Stitchery. The only thing I can think to do is publish the photo and an excerpt. I had copied this story and can not find the exact source for it today. I just didn’t have the energy or time to rewrite the story into a post about it at the time so here’s the pertinent parts.

Indian Sherwani Finds Place in Armani Collection

Italian fashion brand Armani has included sherwani in its latest collections (Agencies Photo)

NEW DELHI: In another global recognition of India’s haute-couture, world-renowned Italian fashion brand Armani has included sherwani in its latest collections.

Sherwani is a long coat-like garment worn in India and is similar to an Achkan or doublet. It is worn over kurta and churidar, pyjama, salwar or dhoti.

This was written before our current monetary crash and I just read where the rupee has fallen to half the value of the dollar. Perhaps it would be a good time to invest in a properly tailored Sherwani.

Nice style, don’t you think?

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!

  1. Yes it is very handsome. A Jodhpuri though is different, shorter in the body, more jacket. Both are very appealing to me and I shall have to make up my mind when I visit an Asian menswear shop.

  2. Yes, I believe you’re correct: this would be much longer than your heart’s desire. I hope you’ll report about your visit to the menswear shop! I look forward to it 🙂

  3. That is a gorgeous jacket. Now I want one too (add it to the the list which could populate a universe).
