He expects a good relationship between quality and price.
The duo is definitely turning to traditional Italian suiting culture. “For Men Suits & Blazers we take inspiration from Italian timeless styling” explains Nabeel. “The Italian style is, essentially, a typical classic and normal cut,” he adds, pointing out that it’s the cut that’s emphasized in Italian tailoring. But the brand has experimented beyond conservative Italian cuts — the modern line more suited for young clients: “We’ve got a tuxedo’s, slim lapel and peak lapel to go with our variety of shirts in super fine fabrics.”Not too steeply priced either, a good, suit in Italian wool blend fabric can come for Rs 12,990 and above up to Rs 16,990.

Nabeel & Aqeel have made its mark through untiring creativity, passion and dedication for high quality clothing. The combinations of silk ties and patterns are very chic and classic; some ties are patterned with circles, lines and other traditional patterns. The quality of Nabeel & Aqeel tie is no doubt the best in local brands and you can compare it with quality and styling of Hugo boss or Canali.
Especially the extra ordinary finesse in formal & casual shirts stitched in a typical Italian style attracted instant attention of buyers and appreciation of fashion lovers and the price is too good to be true from Rs 1,990 upto Rs 2,990.
