Encyclopedia > Sherwani
An old-fashioned Hyderabadi gentleman wearing a formal Sherwani and Fez hat, that is designed by a designer in Lahore, Pakistan

Sherwani (Urdu: شیروانی ) is a long coat-like garment worn in South Asia, very similar to an Achkan or doublet. It is worn over the Kurta and Churidar, Khara pajama, a shalwar. The Sherwani originated in Central Asia and was the court dress of nobles of Turkish and Persian origin in the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire, before being more generally adopted in the late eighteenth century. It was also associated with the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad State. It is the national dress of Pakistan for men, as it is not specifically associated with any of the provinces. In India, it is generally worn for formal occasions in winter by those of North Indian descent, especially muslims from Uttar Pradesh. Most government officials in Pakistan wear the formal black Sherwani on state occasions, which in Pakistan is closely associated with the nation's first Governor General, Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
