A:

Dear Harsha,

  • Many men in India incorporated some elements of western style in their dress. Parsis were the first to adapt western style clothing.
  • Baggy trousers and hat were added to long collared coats with boots.
  • any dalits started dressing themselves differently defying the caste rules. For example, Ambedkar always  dressed himself in western suite.
