Whats next folks? Sarees for men?

24 Sep

Apparently Skirts for men were the new thing at the India Coutre Week (link courtesy CNN/IBN ).

Whats next Sarees?

I’d like to see him walk down Brigade Road in this outfit…

UPDATE: As Mytri points out in her comments below, there was a time when Sarees were worn by men.. ayyo ayyo ayyo !!!!

    Hi,
    Men wearing skirts may not be new like Scottish wear kilts. But probably an ankle length one is definitely NEW!
    I liked you comment on the photo as much as the skirt 🙂
    Cheers,
    Salil
