Hi,

I have been looking for good women's formal wear in Bangalore. Unfortunately most of my female colleagues wear Indian formals and haven't been of much help. I did venture into Forum but they didn't seem to have too many options. If there is a good tailor for dresses and suits, that would be much appreciated as well.

Yay, a virtual hug.

Reading every single post ever submitted on IM was totally worth it.

I guess I am now in a condition to entertain you with the story of why I needed a new wardrobe... just incase people assume I moved to Bangalore without having brought my clothes here

Coming to India not anticpating what the food could..would do to my health is a gross undestatement. I guess jumping into adventure spirit in day 2 of my stay here wasn't necessarily what I would term as 'cautious' either. It has been over 3 weeks and only now is there a semblance of my stomach showing signs of recovery. I have lost (I know some women back home would envy me for this..) over 10 pounds in 3 weeks! (You see I was a small built woman to begin with, so this to me is an absolute NO-NO. Let me tell you this, it is not really a compliment when your clothes hang on you like they do on a hanger!!!

Getting back to my adventures of finding a new wardrobe... After managing for two weeks with two tops, a skirt and two trousers and the whole office wondering if I really did come from a developed country ... I finally found a tailor on CMH road, Indiranagar - Kanate for those interested, has had 3 generations into the business and does a splendid job. The rates are SO much more reasonable than getting custom-made suits back home!!!!! I almost yelped out a cry of delight when I saw the price

Phew! You know this place really does make you sit up and take good note of it, doesn't it?

LOL! No I am not German...from the widy city - Chicago, but i did check out Max Muller bhavan - a friend of mine took me to the german cafe there..must say I quiet enjoyed it. I am guessing I will frequent the place often. There wasn't any festival when I was there. How do i get to know the next time they have something going on there?

The best way to stay informed about the current events is to join the mailing lists..

Hi Mensch!
Do you have a name & tel no for this fabulous sounding tailor? What are their turnaround times? What have you had made & did they work from a sample or your design only? This is one of my favourite things to do in India & I want to go to this tailor!!

coachzee -
if you dont get a reply from mensch - go to " commercial street " in bangalore.
there are them numerous tailors there - who'll sew just about anything if given a sample.
just insist on good finish.
if you push them guys - they do a wonderous job. INSIST on the finish.

the great thing about commercial street is - you can get all sorts of fabrics and them beads, glitters, coconut shell buttons etc available as well - if you so choose to have them stitched onto your garment.

enjoy - and let us know how it went!

I am curious to know what kind of attire women wore to work in Bangalore. I am returning to India after 8 years of living in the USA. Born and raised in Mumbai and never been to Bangalore before. Please let me know if women wear only salwars or sarees?? Since I am not comfortable wearing them and working in a lab. Are trousers and shirts fine

Thanks

Definitely in most offices in Bangalore trousers and shirts will be fine. There might be certain industries that require women to wear "traditional" (airline offices come to mind) but you would be aware if yours was one of them, and I'm sure a lab wouldn't be.

koeli,
it depends on dress code in the company or work place! If there is no formal guidelines, women usually wear saree/ salwar kameez/ trousers n shirt depending on the comfort and ease.
