M M Jasim :
The men of different ages are thronging the city's shopping malls everyday to buy punjabis and other necessary items for them and their near and dear ones for celebrating the holy Eid-ul-Fitr with joy and gaiety.
They are mainly crowding the Bashundhara Shopping mall, Jamuna Future Park, Mouchack Market, Anarkoli market, Concord Twin Tower, Eastern Plaza, Gulistan Market, Pir Yemeni Market, New Market, Gausia Market, Rapa Plaza, Aziz Super Cooperative Market and other reputed markets in the city.
Punjabi, the traditional and most common attire for men of different ages and professions, is the top selling item in each market.
The varieties of different colours and designs of panjabis were made of adi-cotton, pure cotton, khadi, Rajshahi silk, Reshmi cotton, jute cotton and Bexicotton fabrics are being sold hugely in the markets as those have a high demand among the customers.
The prices of panjabis with hand stitched embroidery varied on their qualities and designs. The prices of locally made punjabis are being sold between Tk 800 and Tk 7,000 each at different shopping malls in the city.
Many fashion houses like 'Mantra', Anjan and Nitya Upahar are selling exclusive designed punjabis.
Manager Operation of 'Mantra' Md Mahbub Hasan told The New Nation that their exclusive fashion store has produced attractive and standard panjabis this year.
 "We have two showrooms- - one located at Bashundhara Shopping mall and another at Gulshan-2. We are trying to bring exclusive panjabis every year. We believe in quality. That's why the Mantra's panjabis are the customers' top choice. And I hope that the sale of our punjabis will cross all the records," Hasan said.
However, in the makeshift shops, per panjabi is selling between Tk 350 and Tk 750 yesterday, according to traders.
Fahmida Khatun, a private service holder told The New Nation on Thursday, "The collections of punjabis at different markets are sufficient, but those prices are too high compared with the last year's price. Finally, after visiting three markets, I managed to buy two panjabis for my family members."
This year, the prices of different varieties of panjabis are a little bit high since the prices of yarn and other raw materials for producing cotton went up compared with the previous years, traders asserted.
Despite this, the demand of panjabi this year goes high compared with the previous years. Different garment factories and fashion houses have been working relentlessly to meet the growing demand of punjabis.
This year approximately 3.5 crore panjabis are expected to be sold throughout the country since locally made punjabis have a high demand to the customers, manufacturers told The New Nation yesterday.
Considering the growing demands, garment factories and different fashion houses in the country have increased their production to meet the demand.
Jeans pants are also other attraction for the males. Jeans pants made of various brands like Devise, Banboo, Doggers and Epics are being sold at Tk 700 to Tk 3, 500 per piece while gabardine pants are being sold at Tk 800 to Tk 2,000 each.
Shirts of various brands, including Polo, are being sold at Tk 550 to Tk 2500 per piece. At Shaheb Bazaar and Gonokpara Market, same types of products are being sold.
Bahalul Ahmed Fahim, Managing Director of BJ POINT at Aziz Super Market, said the traders are worried about collection of goods from various places of the country due to continuous rainfall. But, with the end of rain, quality goods have been brought and arranged for the customers at all shops of the city.
The male customers also buy sandals, slippers, formal shoes, casual shoes, boots, sneakers, sports shoes, ties, cufflings, belts and bags.
