"Why do we men have so few options in fashion? Why don't we have the luxury to choose from a plethora of colours and crafts like women do? It's an injustice to men!"
Is it really?
Umm, I don't think so?
In my opinion, it's men who have closeted themselves to the world of a cocoon. The world of colourful butterflies is waiting for them, which is just a little effort away. In fact, in India, back in the time men's attire used to be as cheerful as women, eventually, with the influx of globalization triggering mono-cultural lifestyles, it became stagnant to just shirts and pants.
As they say, old times repeat themselves, and 'Today' I think is that time. It's a Social Media World, where people aren't afraid to choose unconventional thoughts and norms for themselves. People are coming out and accepting different fashion tastes as the lines of gender blurs out. There could be no time better than today, to explore with the personal styles and crafts. There surely will be eyes to judge, but a lot more hands would raise to support.
My complaint is though, why do we wait the whole year for the wedding to come and then wear and experiment with crafts. What holds men back until they are left with just kurta pyjama to have fun with?
No, Not any more! There is the whole sea of crafts to try on and flaunt on different occasions, and yes, I know you agree almost on everything I said, and now the only bummer is that you do not know where to start from.
