  • Simon Carter’s complete range comprises classic suits, jackets, shirts, blazers and accessories, including cufflinks, bracelets, shoes and watches.
  • The collection is priced between ₹3,000 and ₹14,000.
  • “Simon Carter is a step into luxury,” Carter said. “It’s a treat if you buy a shirt from us, but it won’t break the bank.”
  • “We see this as being a ₹ 250-300 crore brand in three years,” Kumar said. The India collection will partly be sourced from the UK, while the rest of the merchandise will be created at ABFRL’s Benguluru factory. Online, the brand is already available for sale on Myntra and on www.simoncarter.in.
