Meena Bazar has always been associated with its ladies' collection. Be it its saris, kurtas or suits, it has stood the test of a brand's worst enemy ? time. But in such a store, it wasn't long before some enterprising and exhausted clerk came up with the idea of opening an exclusive men's outlet.
No more would he have to suffer the ignominy of having to bring down every dress in the shop, just to pander to some silly girl's window shopping fantasies. No sir. In a men's store, it would be different. People would come in, point to what they want, buy it and walk away. Nirvana at last! And any clerk who proved his spurs in the ladies' section could get into the men's store as a reward. Works out every way you look at it.
And so, we come to the exclusive men's outlet of Meena Bazar
. I am sure even women who shop for men in this store are given frigid looks and brusque responses. The store has been here for quite a while now ? 9 years to be exact ? and houses everything you would ever need to satisfy your ethnic wear demands. Everything from kurta-pyjamas to Jodhpuri suits to brocade salwars, they have it all. Added to this staggering collection, they also have formal suits ? Blackberry's, Park Avenue, Reid And Taylor, and loads of other brands.
Ah! I was waiting for when you would start wondering about the prices of these things. Class Dressing
doesn't come cheap. If it did, it wouldn't be Class Dressing
at all. So, before you set foot in the store, top up your credit card, rob a few banks if you have to, or maybe apply for a World Bank loan. The kurtas would set you back anything from Rs. 600 to Rs. 8,000, but designer wear would mean about Rs. 12,000 disappearing from your pocket. Even then, for the amount of work that goes into these dresses, they somehow seem worth it all.
