Fifthly, the upmarket 'South ex'- as it is known to those who live in the city- is almost an endless treasure trove of debonair sherwanis, kurtas, Nehru jackets and blazers. The bridegroom does not need to stress over finding a tailor to customise all the exquisite fabric available as a number of stores offer to stitch the clothes they sell.
