Yes, I also second Sarojini Nagar, as it is in south delhi and you would find a wide range from sweaters, cardigans, jackets etc from top brands to cheap street stores.
The steet shps are in the back alleys of the market and one can find good bargain for export rejected/surplus stuff. For the branded stuff try the numerous shops in the main market. If you are looking for thermal inner wears (I think must for the colder days), look for "Gopal & sons' near the juice and snack shops near the vegetable market.
Another good and reasonable store with the entire range is "Best garments' in INA market which is opposite Dilli Haat, if you know.
Don't forget the magic word " BARGAIN"
all the best.

Nice to see you at Meet Up, waghoba! And I completely forgot to ask how you went with your shopping and where did you go? Was it a success?? I'm curious as to which market was the best?
Every cloud has a silver lining!

All good brands risabh but slightly more expensive than places previously suggested. Woodlands not quite as expensive I think but I may be wrong. Also all those brands have good, long-lasting quality.

Monte carlo is my favourite too, they have good stuffs for both ladies and men.
In February Mohini Knitwear organises mega sale at Janpath hotel. Avoid week ends and late afternoons as there will be huge crowd.
For casuals check out Snow white, quite decent stuff at decent price.
In olden days there used to be a few ladies in every residential localities who used to knit pullovers, scarves etc. You bought your wool and handed over to one of these ladies, chose a design from the tattered pages of magazines held by them. In a week's time your pullover used to be ready!!!

Do you know, jyotirmoy, I went to one of these Mohini sales about 4 years back and bought Mr K a very good 'dughli' or vest and he is still wearing it after many washes and it looks as good as new! What a pity I'm only going to be in Delhi till 27 Jan and will miss this. Will look out for Monte Carlo stuff instead. Snow White - Mr K still has his trousers from 8 years back bought in Karol Bagh market I think - it is very vague to me now because I was newly returned to Delhi at the time. But thinking of the direction we went it would have to have been around there.
And speaking of knitting - that's what I'm doing now that the weather is cooler.. knitting little sweaters for children out in the village. Interesting to read your comments - it seems to be a dying art now doesn't it - I did knit a vest for Mr K a couple of years back, but now I like small things because they finish quickly and I don't have so much time these days to do this.

Yes, and when your pullovers wore away you exchanged those and other old clothes for brand new stainless steel utensils from another lady who came to your house!

Where are all these folks now? Also the guy who re-plated cooking utensils or the guy who respun the cotton in your quilts?

Knitting lil sweaters for lil kids... Aishah you are doing a great job...
Dear Capt these utensil wallies still do the rounds in the afternoon though their numbers are dwindling. The problem is that by a kind of chemical polishing it is possible to make ordinary steel utensils to look like stainless steel. I accidently stumbled in to one of the hole in the wall workshops in old Delhi.
