A friend told me he was told at another store that in Delhi was a Fabindia store on three floors. Do you happen to know which one of the outlets it might be? If not, do you know which one might be the biggest one for Kurtas/Pijamas?

For Kurta lovers Kolkata is THE place.

I am just looking for simple plain white and coloured cuts. Intricate decorations do not go well in the West where I want them for.

The Khan market store is on 3 levels also - so could have been that one.. they had lots of plain colours, short, long, kaftans - you name it!

You could also try the Khadi shop next to Regal cinema in CP for plain white & coloured kurtas made of handspun cotton.

Don't forget the beautiful soap in that shop, we're working our way through our stash now! And yes, the kurtas and things are lovely!

There are 2 in GK-1, N block market. Both relatively smaller. One dedicated to clothes and the other has furniture/household items as well.

The one in Khan is actually on 2 floors not 3... it starts from the 1st and has one more level..hence 2 only :-)

The one your friend might be ref to is the outlet in Vasant Vihar. This has a huge floor space and has 3 floors if i recall correctly. Entire range of items available here.

Let me know if you need any more details.

Well, thanks every one. I ended up going to Connaught Fabindia because close to Paharganj (where I bought some nice stuff), and was hoping the Khadi shop might have some decent things which did not turn out. It has cheap stuff as everywhere else, at least in the white version. Low quality cloth, not good stitching. (Really sorry for that, since I would like to support the Khadi movement and the village tailors...)

Then I went to the Khan Market Fabindia, which turned out kind of smallish too, the store, large selection in coloured items, practically nothing in white. They referred me to the GK store too, where I did not go because I had bought more nice (coloured) shirts at the KM Fabindia. With "only" a thousand Rs left and the credit card left in the hotel I decided not to go to GK. Any decent kurta or shirt at Fabindia is at least 500 Rs (as reference point for others).

I was lucky with Mohanlaldas (C Block Connaught Place), an upscale high quality tailor shop, which happens to have 50 percent off on pants and stuff at the moment. Really good modern (self-) makes of Western type pants, ranging around 1200 Rs full price. I got mine half-price.

I still hope to find a good sweater on Janpat (between Tibetan Market and div. State Government Emporiums) this eve before leaving to my colder country. (But not as cold as everyone thinks .)

Thanks a lot for everyone's input, and yes the Fabindia store to go to for the widest selection obviously must be the one in Greater Kailash.

Shashank, I did not go to Rajouri Garden after all, due to lack of time (and energy, I should add). But thanks anyway for the suggestion.
