A complete guide to Menswear fashion in Baroda
Gone are the days when fashion and trends were dominantly directed solely towards women while men’s buying behaviour was considered to be rather need based in nature. The evolution of menswear fashion has been so prodigious, that men’s western wear today, accounts for a whopping 60 to 70 per cent of the overall fashion market in India. Men today, are equally conscious about their looks and appearance where they are constantly experimenting with grooming and styling by catching up with the latest trends and thereby, being in vogue.
Baroda however, has quite limited options when it comes to good fashion stores for men’s wear, leaving the global labels and mall brands aside. While there are a decent number of stores for ethnic and festive wear, there’s a huge void when it comes to smart casuals and stylish formalwear. So, where does one shop from in Baroda, apart from Pantaloons, Westside, Peter England, Wills and UCB?
We, at Ciceroni, did an extensive research to solve all your shopping woes and compiled a complete guide to menswear fashion in Baroda for all you fashion savvy men (and women, who shop for these men) to help you hit the right store for all your fashion needs.
From crisp formals to cool casuals and from quirky indie to regal ethnic, bookmark this article for your next shopping shenanigans.
