Best Ethnic Wear Essentials For Men

It is a misconception that men don't like to dress up. In ethnic festivities or wedding seasons, men also want to look stylish and classy. They also want to experiment with different types of traditional men kurtas and ethnic outfits and browse various sense and style statements to create their unique style.

While Indian ethnic clothing is vibrant and elegant for women, men also have multiple options to choose from, like sherwani jackets, kurta, and many more to dress up for religious events, wedding ethnic festivities or even for a simple family get-together. So we have prepared a comprehensive guide regarding the various types of traditional and ethnic clothes that men can have for different occasions.

Kurta Churidar

Kurta and Churidar are definitely on top of the list of ethnic combos for men. Along with being extremely comfortable, this combo is easy to wear and is very classy. As a result, it is a prevalent choice amongst men. You can also buy a kurta churidar with an ethnic jacket if you feel your solid colour kurta is too bland for a particular occasion.

Kurta Salwar

The next favourite item on the list of men kurtas is a kurta salwar combo. Just like kurta churidar, it also provides excellent comfort along with a unique style statement. The salwar is loose fit and a bit baggy, which gives a different look to the entire outfit. You can also find salwars similar to a Patiala that are embroidered with gold or contrasting borders, giving a modern or contemporary look.


Also known as the groom's favourite, the classic sherwani is a type of men kurtas that are usually worn during a grand event like a wedding or special family functions. It varies from simple ornate Sherwanis to myriad fabrics that always makes it a tough choice. Sherwanis were originally not Indian dresses. They have been brought on by the Mughal royalty and have evolved into classy wedding wear for men today. You can also pair a sherwani with churidar/dhoti or safa and wrap a dupatta around.

Achkan Sherwani

It is a type of sherwani and is a perfect choice for making a unique style statement. The fashionable attire adds jazz to the look and is popular among men who want to look classy on their wedding day.  The primary difference between a sherwani and an achkan is the length, fabric, and flare from the waist. While the sherwani has a longer length, achkan has more flare from the waist to the bottom. The knee-length coat is added to give for a more masculine look.

Bandhgala or Jodhpuri Suit

This outfit is often referred to as the prince coat and is a must-have in every man's wardrobe. The benefit of a bandhgala is that it fits any and every body type and gives a royal look to the individual.
