"It’s a demand and supply thing," says Delhi-based image consultant Dilip Cherian. "Women are more conscious of the image factor of their men and are talking about it.

Suren, a 26-year-old engineer-businessman in Chennai, flashing his Omega wristwatch. "People take you seriously if you wear brands and know the latest trends. It’s a statement." For others, it’s a necessity. "I’m not too brand-conscious," says Nakul Manchanda, the 25-year-old managing partner of a Delhi-based steel firm. "I just go for the basics, like my Versace glares."
