Men’s Kameez Shalwar
Men’s Kameez Shalwar is a traditional subcontinental outfit, whose origin spans several centuries and which is still quite in the mode today. Contrary to popular belief, there is a wide variety of styles available for men’s Kameez Shalwar ranging from variations in color to cut to embroidery to fabrics.
Types of Designs
Gone are the days when only blacks, whites and browns could suit a man’s clothes. Today Men’s Kameez Shalwar combinations are available in a wide array of colors such as maroon, off white, egg shell white, shades of blue, mustard, shades of green and more. The style of sleeves also varies and can help create quite a different look depending on whether they are three quarters length or full length, cuffed or not cuffed.
Collar styles can also vary and the addition of embroidery on and around the collar and the buttons tends to elevate a Kameez to be worthy of a wedding or some other fancy occasion. Lighter material such as cotton is linen is used to make Kameez Shalwar outfits for the summer months while heavier fabrics are used for the winters. Fabrics like silk are also used to make Kameez Shalwar for formal occasions such as Eid, a wedding, a family event or some other such occasion.
Another addition to the men’s Kameez Shalwar is the waistcoat, traditionally worn on one’s own wedding or a close relative’s wedding or perhaps at some important event e.g. how Hamza Ali Abbasi, the well loved Pakistani actor, turns up at award functions in Kameez Shalwar and waistcoat.
The traditional Kameez has pockets on the sides and maybe one pocket on the front but today designers are experimenting with other designs such as adding multiple pockets or contrasting their colors of kurta.
