Suits to suit your budget
Bibek Bhattacharya June 8, 2008
Never have Indian men had it this good in terms of the range of fabrics to choose from. Summer is the time to re-invent your look, which means shedding your lightweight woollen suits for linen ones that breathe, and give you a cool, rakish look. And you need not break the bank to look good. The suits we have selected are finely crafted garments that fit perfectly, and don’t cost the earth. What more could you ask for?
The pinstriped suit
Linen suits look best when they come in pinstripes. It offsets the texture of the fabric and looks great with any shirt. You could go for a white linen shirt and contrast the pinstripes with a different pattern on the tie.
