In those days, there were no designers who designed clothes for men as such, and seeing Sharbari Dutta ‘s work was quiet a revelation! There was intricate embroidery on the lower borders of the dhoti-s and on the sleeves and necks of the kurta-s adding a delightfully celebratory touch to the garments. It was like bringing back the elaborate costumes of the Mughals in a contemporary and yet traditionally Bengali way.
