I'm not bringing to many clothes with me to India in December. I always end up not wearing half my stuff. I'm doing a lot of travelling mostly in the South and would like some loose clothing to just pop on and go. I was looking through the forums and Kurtas look the way to go. I'm staying near Crawford Market is there anywhere near where i could purchase some Kurtas?

Fabindia has a good line of kurtas and loose-fitting stuff. You can find less stylish but equally serviceable togs at most Khadi Bhavans.

You would find many shops near Crawford Market (L T Marg is the name of the road) when walking towards Roopam (showroom).

Thanks for the advice. Will these shops be made to measure or are they off the shelf so to speak? What's the average price?

Readymade. The cost is around Rs 500 or so at Fabindia.

From Rs 100 upwards on the streets depending on how much you can bargain, with no guarantee for colour fastness, and single seam only! If you want a good variety of these and are happy to bin them at the end of your trip, go to Fashion Street / Linking Rd / Colaba Causeway / Hill Rd etc and buy the Rs 100-150 kurtas that you will find just about everywhere.

Are we looking for ladies or gents kurtas? You will find a good selection of cotton gents kurtas on the streets of Fort as well.

Have a look at the stalls and shops near Crawford Market first, as Aarosh said. In addition to the LT Marg, you can also find them in the lanes of Abdul Rehman St. Dont expect anything to be colour fast.


If you want made to measure, go to any Mumbai tailor if you can spare a few days for it to be made up.

A bit to the south of Crawford mkt in MG road is a Khadi Bhavan,all sorts of kurtas and much cheaper than fab india,although FI has a bigger colour and length range.

Night time wear kurtas are different, they are white and made of fine cotton fabric. You have to ask the shopkeeper for "Pyjama Kurta" though you need not buy the pyjama, you can buy just the kurta. These should cost around Rs 250 upward for a finer fabric.

On Kalbadevi Road which is quite near Crawford Market, there are small shops which sell only these pyjama kurtas. Im sure there are some closer to Cr. Market as well. Just ask any shopkeeper nearby.
