TGIF: Eid Mubarak! Men in Pathani Suits!

I did a TON of research on this.  And turns out there is no such thing as a “Pathani suit”.  there are various specific things that it could be, traditional garb in the North Indian/Pakistani cultures, but what is generally called “Pathani” is really just loose Salwar and a very long Kameez.

I’m not gonna mess around, we’ll start with Shahrukh.  In White

Black and a beard

Glasses (Raees is a great movie)

And to finish it up, as a special Eid treat, a song!

 

Okay, now other lesser Pathani suit wearers.  Salman first, he also wears it quite well.  And in red!

Also good in black

You know who looks surprisingly good in a Pathani suit?  Saif!

Not as surprisingly, also Ajay

Oh yeah, definitely Ajay

Imraan is I think a NO.  Not quite the swag you want for a Pathani suit.

I think it’s just that all young men don’t look quite right.  For instance, Varun Dhawan

Nope, not Sidharth either

But Shahid, YES!  He has crossed that invisible line of maturity into the Pathani zone.

But not all manly men, Akshay Kumar for instance just doesn’t look quite right.

Sushant Singh Rajput…..Also a nope from me!

And then there’s Aamir, who is less Swag, and more “good boy dressed right for the holiday”.  Which is a different kind of manly.

And then there’s Ranveer.  Who is, I think, wearing a Pathani suit, but with the usual Ranveer flare.

I tried to find a southerner for us, I really did!  But the only one I could dig up was Prithviraj.  He looks really good though, right?

And to finish….oh look, it’s Shahrukh again!

Now, question!

Which Shahrukh is the best Shahrukh?

I think black and beard for me

What do you think makes someone old enough for a Pathani suit?  Marriage?  Turning 30?  Children?  Or is it just having the right kind of shoulder/waist/leg length?

I think I’m going with having the right kind of shoulder/waist/leg length, plus a certain grace in how you move.  Thus Shahid’s surprisingly youthful Pathani abilities.

If Shahrukh is off the table, who is your second pick for “who wore it best”?

I think I gotta go with Ajay!  His second win after Dhotis earlier this week.  He’s just looking good to me this week.

    • I know, right? It makes the shoulders look broader, the waist smaller, all kinds of good things.

  1. Salwar and Kameez is incredibly comfortable, plus you don’t have to worry about your shirttail coming out — plus it’s nice for those of us who have a “muture” waist.

    • Maybe that “mature” waist concern is what makes it look right. The older men have a certain extra spring in their step thanks to no longer worrying about sucking in their gut.

  2. I have to agree with Shahid and Ajay tied for first, with Saif a close second for me. I do love that look, too. All the younger guys are trying to dress up with bright colors and flair and it is just loses its manliness.

  3. Eid Mubarak Margaret, I choose Shahrukhan in white, his look very close to the look of man with White caftan in our village in Eid

    for the second pick – Prithviraj i love him,I rarely see southern films, and mostly Prithviraj movies

    • Prithviraj looks soooooooooooooo good in the Pathani suit. Maybe someday he will do a movie where he plays a northerner and wears them all the time. We can only hope!
