TGIF: Nothing Hotter Than a Traditional Man!

Well, that headline is just not true.  Clearly a three piece suit wearing man is the hottest possible option.  But, for this week, I am going to follow a suggestion from Miss Braganza and do a post of men in traditional outfits.


Let’s start out with perhaps the most ridiculous and also most delightful version.  The Kurta, in a world where fastenings were never invented.  Worn by Sidharth and Varun.

Akshay is fully fastened, but he makes up for it by his lovely accessory…a good marriage!  (I’m still in the post-Koffee afterglow of being in love with them as a couple)

You know, the traditional dress even works when a your accessory is a sling!  At least if you are Shahrukh Khan.

Speaking of Khans, I just took way way too long to remember this picture existed and it was clearly the best possible version of Aamir in traditional clothing.

I’m sure it’s for a fashion show, but I’m kind of loving how Ranbir is making this outfit his own.

At possibly the same show, Hrithik looked gooooood!

You know the cool thing about the traditional clothes?  They look good one everybody!  But in slightly different ways on each of them.  Like Abhishek, Ajay, and Amitabh here.

Speaking of, I love this combo of the unshaven look and the flowered scarf!  Good one, Salman!

And, as almost always, let us end with Dharmendra!  Who is so traditional, it’s just what he wears around the house.

  1. Ooh! A fun Friday post 😍
    My fave fave fave is Salman Khan in Dholi Taro from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam…the red vest and black pants.
    Fawad Khan in the Cutiepie song on ADHM looked so good as well. Wish the song was entirely his


  2. Yay, my idea! Too bad there’s no good “finished dhoti” picture from Swedes, but that prompted me to go watch that scene on Youtube again. It always reminds me of the phone scene in It’s a Wonderful Life, only more convincing. (Also, why does Gita know how to tie a dhoti?)


  3. What Dharmendra is wearing is a Lungi. It is kind of a simple wrap around and is not uncommon (though getting less common) in Indian households as a night wear. Rural south Indians sometimes wear lungis outside as well because of the high temperature and humidity. Either it is wrapped around and left loose like Dharmendra wore it or is folded upwards like Mahesh in this Pokiri song (Try not to laugh)

    Either way Lungi is more popular in South India when compared to the north and that is why there is this.
