The Nehru Suit, Facts and Tips

There are many different styles of suit, from the traditional Double Breasted and Single Breasted to the not so common Nehru.

The Nehru Suit is a classic Asian style; it is longer than a regular jacket, with a mandarin collar shirt and traditionally has no vent. It also has 5 or more buttons down the front for fastening.

The significant difference between the Nehru jacket and a normal suit jacket is the collar. A Nehru suit has a mandarin collar which is a short and stand up collar that doesn’t have lapels. As the collar covers up any place to display a shirt beneath a Mandarin shirt would be the ideal item to wear with this suit.

 

The Mandarin collar shirt has a similar short stand-up collar, that is done up by a stylish button at the top, you can get these with single or double cuffs, and some even come with changeable top buttons so you can make it smart or casual for any occasion.

Nehru Suits can be worn for any occasion, they are smart and sophisticated for formal events or make for perfect wedding suits for the groom, but can also be worn for family occasions and casual outings.

You can even pair the jacket with a different pair of flat front or pleated trousers to tone it down for the causal look.

It is getting harder to find the Nehru suit on the high street and in stores, this is why Rupert The Tailor has designed their own version, take a look at that below. It is available in the traditional colours, in smart pastels or exotic bolder colours.
