Sikh Fashion Masters and Fashion Disasters

Recommended Posts

Guest jigsaw_puzzled_singh

There was a discussion here a few days ago...I think it was in the wedding photo thread...about Sikh / Punjabi fashion. I was never terribly into fashion myself...to the great disspointment of my dad who to this day still has his bon marley stylee Gabbicci knit-ganzee cardigan hanging in his wardrobe. But the internet, Joobie tube, instabook, face chat, snap crack and popple are absolutely jam-packed these days with Singhs and Kaurs displaying their 'style'. We're overloaded with dastar wearing girls posing in shots showing how stylish and fashionable they look and it seems a Singh can't be a proper singh and get his picture on the world-wide web thingy these days unless he's laying on the dapper style with a cravatte, sporting the world's biggest turban or playing tonsil tennis with a transvestite. But what do i know about fashion ?   Not that much really. I know uncles from Birmingham and the Midlands have a penchant for wearing cheap trainers with their suits and ladies from India will wear extraordinarily lovely gear from the top of their head to their ankles but will round it of with either the most horrible shoes or cheap nasty looking grey socks....under which are the hideously deformed feet that almost every female from India has. But apart from that, what do I know. The answer is nothing. I know this picture coming up below is meant to be really fashionable but to me looks like 3 extremely effeminate fellas heading off to the kusra convention:

I know this Singh needs to re-think the whole length of the beard approach in order to make this work:

I know the less I say about this Singh the better:

I know in a few years Diljit's gonna regret ever being seen in public wearing this monstrosity and MC hammer pants:

and i know if its cold enough to require a scarf and gloves you should at least give some thought to perhaps wearing a jacket or coat.

one on the left looks like Mummy and Daddy lost him at eurodisney in 2005 and didn't go back to get him 

one on right was doing his magician's act and unfortunately majicked his pathaloon away

Jusreign is a namoona really , no questions or expectations for that to change - he thinks the world laughs with him ....errr

The three at trafalgar my oh my :

left got paalaa and asked his bebe for her shawl, centre thought he would be clever and innovative only Lady Di did that in the eighties and much better,  not a fan of the hermes scarf as a bandana/do rag combined with the tweed hacking jacket ....

apart from the gloves this Singh looks good

Yes, I think it's a given that one should put a jacket or coat on before even thinking about the need for gloves.

However, what this Singh has shown is that the Sikh models have fully embraced the 1970's art of 'pretending to look at something far away'. All the Sikh fashion models are at it :

These two are clearly not compatible with each other. He's infatuated with something far away to the west whereas she just can't seem to take her eyes off something in the east:

These 4 are all over the place, easily distracted by all sorts of things happening in all directions :

This one's seen something so amazing to the east he's even taken his eye off his phone :

This one's not very happy with whatever is happening to her left :

This one's just seen a £5 note laying on the floor to his right and is debating whether he should stop the photo shoot and pick it up:

This one is marrying Varinder in 30 minutes but has just seen Manjinder walking down the street and is now having second thoughts:

But....where does it all come from....this 'pretending to look at something far away' approach to fashion photography ?   I'll tell you where it comes from..................1970's catalogues. Back in the 1970's they not only invented it they turned it into an artform. Take these blokes here....basically what they're saying is "that thing far away over there is so brilliant I can't even be bothered to put my trousers on"

But those were different times. Those were times when, in order to convince you to buy some underwear, they would place them on the most hideously ugly fat bloke because, as we all know, all men like to buy items of clothing they've seen on hideously ugly fat blokes:

Ah yes. The golden era of model photography:

In the days of the empire and 19th century Sikhs seem to to wear long kurta or chola with pyjami and then tie long material/fabric around their waist.  Sikhs definitely looked and dressed better in the old days, they look like princes

That's actually very interesting Puzzled. Umm...it seems our people have been doing the old 'pretending to look at something far away' since cameras were invented. We may have even invented the genre. :)
