The Versatile Duo

“Fashion is not an expensive piece of clothing; it is how well you carry what you wear,” believe Shyam and Ravi Gupta

It was the 80s, a decade more notorious than famous for its crazy fashion sensibilities, when Shyam Gupta embarked on his enterprise — all alone. A one-man-army, he mastered the skills of the tailoring trade, drawing inspiration from a neighbouring shop that became his muse, and his ‘karmabhoomi’. That Gargee’s work has endured for more than three decades is a testament to Shyam Gupta’s dedication to his chosen profession, his eye for detail, and the unfailing spirit of craftsmanship — every seam, every stitch on the shop floor undergoes minute scrutiny before it sees the light of the day. It is no surprise, then, that his clientele has remained loyal to this day, winning him more than their praise from very early on.

And with Shyam’s son Ravi joining him in recent years, menswear by Gargee has embraced what being fashionable and on trend means to the contemporary eye. Ravi’s experience with labels such as Karan Johar + Varun Bahl, and Diwan Saheb brings the best of both worlds — fashion from a designer’s perspective, as well as retail. Add to that a list of celebrities he has worked for — from Amitabh Bachchan, and Hrithik Roshan, to Siddharth Malhotra and Ranbir Kapoor — and you know you will get trendsetting attire when you come to Gargee.
