Well, somebody's random comment on my beautiful Sam Hober Ancient Madder paisley tie got me thinking about South Asian contribution to men's style. The more I though about it I realised that it is very substantial and poorly recognised. So here go somethings I know. Feel free to add more - pailsey pattern -seersucker -madras cotton -cummerbund -pyjamas -gingham checks (?) - Nehru jacket -tussah silk -khaki/chino fabric -sola hat -cashmere fabric - mohair/angora weaving (?) I am not sure about handlebar moustache and the colour pink but would not be surprised. Is there any other Asian country with a greater origonal contribution to mainstream men's style?
