Let us talk about kurta, first. There are various varieties or types of kurtas for men to go with. You should choose the best one of them for you. They look almost similar, they have only two or three major things that makes difference between these varieties of kurtas. 


A white and a black kurta with different types of collars.

There are mostly two types of collar in men's kurta. First is a normal shirt type collar and the second is short Chinese collar

The first type collar is found in pathani kurtas, If your kurta's collar is first type then for better styling you should upen up 2-3 button from upside. Never fastened every button. This is basically a stiffed collar it needs more care, you should iron it and take care that it should stiff always. 

The other type of kurtas rather than a pathani kurta have that second type of collar, if your kurta's collar is second type the Chinese or small collar then the most important thing you should take care that it's shoulder should not be much tight. 

Meant to say that this collar type kurta look stylish if it is wear with full button closed. So, when you are going to close all button then your kurta should be littlebit loose fit on shoulder, otherwise you are not gonna feel comfortable with it. 

Sleeves or Half-Sleeves

As usual, there are two types of sleeves in kurtas. Full sleeves and half sleeves. But people prefer wearing a long sleeve kurta, mostly. You should wear a half sleeve kurta only if you have a great physique and especially a big biceps

Styling Full sleeves

The first is stiffed cuff sleeve end and the second is sleeve with normal end. The stiffed cuff sleeve end type kurta's sleeve or you can say it a normal shirt like sleeve. This type kurta is best for rolling your sleeves and let your forearms be-enhance.

The second is sleeve with normal end it does not have any cuff. You can not roll the sleeves of This type of kurta's. If you wanted to enhance your forearms in this type of kurta then you can pull it lilbit, it will give your kurta an elegant. look.
