The Indian subcontinent gave birth to this traditional attire. The word kurta has its origins in the Urdu, Hindustani language and has also got the name from the Sanskrit word kuratu or kurtaka. In Persian it literally means a collarless shirt and it indeed is a collarless dress but some variants have a collar. This attire is commonly worn in some countries like Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka as well.

The men’s kurta is combined with pyjamas, churidar, pants, jeans, Dhoti, salwar and Lungis and is stitched in fabrics like khadi, cotton and silk. Kurtas are a part of ethnic wear for men and there are different varieties of them such as: Kalidar, Angarkha, Aline, kurtas, just to name a few. Regional styles also include the Bhopali, Hyderabadi, Lucknowi and straight-cut kurtas. Men’s ethnic wear kurtas command a vast repertoire of methods, traditional and modern, for embellishing fabric. However, the most common decoration is embroidery. Many light summer kurtas feature Chikan embroidery, a specialty of Lucknow This embroidery is typically executed on light, semi-transparent fabric in a matching thread, while the rich festive kurtas have all sorts of lustrous and wide variety of embroidery techniques that are used to create exquisite version of designer kurtas.

Flowy, asymmetric and structured silhouettes make a unique array of styles within the collection to given enough choice to clients. A particular signature yet modern take on a kurta style created by the RR brand is the English Kurta: styled around the shirt detailing and cut shorter than most Kurt styles, the stand-up collar and cuffs are well defined and give it a global edge. It is coupled with the Rathore breeches to give an added touch of uniqueness.

Some of the do’s and don’ts when making a the right kurta choice would be as follows:

1. Avoid wearing see-through kurtas without inners or vests.
2. Make sure the kurta falls proportionally and there are no pull at the seams.
3. Do not overload the side pockets of the kurta, as it starts to look sloppy.
4. It is better to go for a jacquard and texture based fabric for a kurta, in case wearing too much embroidery is not in line with your personal style, as the former looks as dressy if styled well.
5. It looks more masculine and slick if the regular kurta sleeves are rolled up.
6. The fit needs to be right and cannot look baggy or oversized.
7. A set of kurta buttons always adds an accent to the entire silhouette.
8. The ideal footwear to go with kurtas would be: Kolhapuris, Peshawari sandals (work ideally with slim pants and salwar lowers), monk straps with breeches as A lower and Juttis.

Longer length and very flared kurtas proportionately look better on tall individuals while the shorter length kurta works better on average to short height individuals. All in all the kurta’s humble yet universal appeal has given it the presence it deserves.
