Digging deep into the roots of Indian wear, we see the major presence of kurtas as a daily comfort wear!
Since it originated in India, it’s only right to say that kurtas have been the essence of the Indian wear and specifically men’s wear. Started as a common wear, kurta has an exciting tale of evolution. From a day to day wear to wearing it on special occasions; adorned by movie stars to high profile fashionistas, kurta has been on an evolving journey and has seen it all.

Kurta may not still be an everyday wear for people in metro cities but still has a strong hold to the Indian roots and values. For any important occasion, be it family functions or religious ceremonies, kurta is the top choice in ethnic wear for Indian men. The aspect of comfort attached to it, makes it appropriate apparel for occasions where you need to look good and be at ease at the same time!
