5 Indian Brands That Are Delivering Love Through Tailor-Made Shirts

By  | 

A crisp classic shirt has travelled from being a white-collared formal to now a treasured piece for aesthetes. An evolution that changed the significance and widened its bandwidth to wear beyond board room meetings, Indian brands are on a journey of reinventing and renovating the wardrobe staple. From traditional prints to interesting stitches, labels across the country are defining their signature designs on the versatile shirt. And documenting some of our favourites, here are 5 shirts that require your immediate attention as a gift for the upcoming summer.

The Wild Wild Life

Known for some exotic tropical prints and its citrus colour palette, Label Sugar rejuvenates the Bohemian aesthetic. Offering a wide range of scarf tops, dresses and some quirky bucket hats, one thing that asks for our attention is their collection of shirts. An advocate of slow fashion, every piece pays homage to the rich Indian textiles. And our favourite is the reversible unisex shirt that offers a variety of shades and a breezy print that needs a mention in your stack. Shop here.

Print Please

A great example of less is more, the tailor-made collection by Nar Maada marinates traditional Indian block prints and fabric like – Dabu, Kalamkari and Bagh with the classic shirt. Venturing into a range of silhouettes and modern designs, the simplicity and beauty of the age-old craft of print design and dyeing gets a new shape through the label. Showcasing an array of colours, we love the orange plush rapid shirt, from the shelves of the homegrown label. Shop here.

Flower Power

Endorsing a variety of ecstatic prints and the technique of patchwork, Glen Studio’s collection speaks about the love for flowers. Weaving together timeless pieces, the sustainable brand’s range of quilted, patchwork jackets with a blend of Ditsy prints is fresh. From Gingham to Ikat, the marriage between fabrics, designs and silhouettes, binds its distinct aesthetic. And our favourite piece from their collection is the handpainted hemp shirt adorned with coconut buttons. Plus, the label plants a tree with every purchase, which is a win-win. Shop here.

Because Every Piece Narrates A Tale

Weaving together the Indian heritage with a dash of modern masala, Doh Tak Keh deals in statement wear. The brand is known for its unique sourcing technique, of collecting gully waste from cloth, glass to random plastic, followed by hours of scripting a story through each garment. Championing sustainability, we love the label’s unique design language. From pant-suits to fabulous blazers, the one shirt on our radar is the brand’s Padatika Express shirt. Shop here.
