Run by Kabir Hingorani, whose family set up one of India’s first readymade shirt brands in the 50s, The Stiff Collar features about a dozen designs with quirky descriptions (the white poplin shirt is “sort of what Ralph Fiennes wore in The English Patient. Would go well with khakis and gin”) and a reasonable Rs 899 tag. Jeeves would approve.
