Aristocracy London reimagines the Nehru suit for the 21st century, creating a collection of mandarin collar suits with stunning colours and flattering fit. To give you more options, we made our Nehru suits slightly shorter and replaced the straight buttoned-up front with a range of morning coat style cuts.
The Nehru suit is inspired by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India, and modelled after the sherwani. It stands out for its mandarin collar, hip length and straight buttoned-up front, and it’s known to create a slimming effect. This style was particularly popular in the late 1960s and 1970s and it’s now coming back in different variations, especially for formal looks.
Nehru is a very popular choice, both for grooms with an Asian background and other gentlemen. Apart from its slimming effect, Nehru suits come in a variety of colours, fabrics and textures and many designers are adding their touch to the jacket’s cut, creating memorable outfits that are ideal as wedding suits.
