      Yes! The excellent Waris. He makes jewellery as well. Renaissance men… sigh.

    Waris? Still laughing at his role in The Darjeeling Limited. Frankly, I find his clothing well fitting but drab. Is that a fashion or a religious choice?

    I love how that little handkerchief jumps off that drab suit. This is a religious uniform of sorts, but it reminds me of Catholic high school when we would find unique ways of self expression through the drab uniform. Shoes, hair, a belt, suspenders, anything we could find to adorn our uniforms became our mode of identifiable self expression. Fashion is loud even when it whispers.

    The worn-ness of the suit would otherwise seem daggy, but the decorative pocket handkerchief shows he knows exactly what he’s doing… as does his stance.
    This pic also shows how dusky and muted colours can be brought out by a bit of black accessorising – whether that’s a turban or a handbag or the colour of your hair. I wonder what shoes he’s wearing…

  91. jjj

    April 21, 2009 at 9:47 am

    no, this is not a “religious uniform of sorts.” i know plenty of sikhs who wear bright colors. all the religious comments above are irrelevant, particularly when the commenter does not know what he/she is talking about. true, none of the comments were disrespectful per se, but please don’t make judgments about something you don’t know.
