Gentlemen Eat With Their Hands Too
Think of the old school Indian aesthete that Utpal Dutt (a Bengali actor) plays in Satyajit Ray’s (a prominent Indian director) film, The Stranger. It is a tailored casual blazer made in a palette inspired by the colors of food at a Bengali sit down dinner. The coolest thing it is the fabric— our Versatile Khadi that co-operates with the need to roll-up one’s sleeves to eat. It features two slits at the back for fit while the cuff has one button for ease. Another special thing about the jacket is it is designed with two different types of front pockets; a pocket with a flap and a pocket without. Pair this with a classic fitted t-shirt, a formal shirt, a printed vest, a crop top or easy racerbacks. This blazer was designed with the intention of picking a different color for each day of the week. Not to mention, it’s perfect for the lazy dresser.
The fabric is our Versatile Khadi. It is traditionally hand-spun on a wheel, reminiscent of days during our Independence. The typical hand-feel of khadi is stiff with a bit of starch. However, ours is more unconventional because of the way we treat it. Malleable in nature, it falls more like a heavy linen. It absorbs color like a paper napkin and adapts to every mood.
Each piece is specially hand-dyed, receives an enzyme-wash, and then is cut and made by one tailor—just for you. Our clothes are a little bit complicated to care for like a lover. But, if you treat them well they will reward you in many ways.

Keep in mind that hand-dyeing is a human process, so there will be a 5-10% variation between what you see on the screen and what you receive.
