Bombay Shirt Company- The Story Of My Shirt!

So When was the last time you wore a shirt customised for you? For me it was during school days 🙂 mainly before the commencement of the school after the summer holidays.  Going to the local tailor shop was fun, that was the only time we used to get an idea about the latest fashion trends, tailor was our hero. He knew so many things about various styles of shirting, which hero wears what style and all.

Times changed. The era of ready -made shirts came. It was a big rage, so many varieties, trends and styles. But the fun of whole process of making your own shirt had gone.

Bombay Shirt Company

Recently I came to know about the Bombay Shirt Company and how they customise shirts. I got curious and decided to visit the outlet.

This is the story of my Shirt!

The Level of Customisation.

I was surprised by the level of customisation Bombay Shirt Company offers. Right from fabrics (both Indian and International brands) to Collars, Buttons, Leather, Twill tapes and Suede. You get a good amount of choices to pick in these various categories. Enough options to choose!

So I spent a good amount of time, going through all the options and designed my shirt.

The experience was great, the staff were courteous and helpful.  And here I am proudly wearing the shirt i designed.  at the Bombay Shirt Company, Adyar outlet.

Mysore Sandal’s Sir M.V.100 Agarbathies

During my usual grocery shopping at the nearby store, I happened to see this interesting pack, written as Mysore Sandal Sir M V 100 Agarbathies. A detailed look revealed that this special pack was a tribute to the genius engineer Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, popularly known as Sir MV.  The brand is owned by world famous  Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Limited, (KSDL) which makes Mysore Sandal Soaps. KSDL is World’s largest producer of Sandalwood oil.

 

 

SIR MV.

Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, popularly known as Sir MV  was an engineer, scholar, statesman and the Diwan of Mysore from 1912 to 1918. He is a recipient of the Indian highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna and was knighted by the British. His birthday day , 15 September is celebrated as Engineer’s Day. He was the chief engineer responsible for the construction of the Krishna Raja Sagara dam in Mysore as well as the chief designer of the flood protection system for the city of Hyderabad.

SIR MV is truly a Bharat Ratna and this is a great tribute by Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Limited.
