What is a Sherwani?

Told you'll I was serious about arranging my boys marriages. Just converted Aiden to Hindu...lol...j/k....Today was International day at Aiden's school so we decided to dress the Prince as a Prince of India w/ authentic threads.




Not totally sure, but I think he's wearing a Sherwani....

A sherwani is a long garment which resembles an Achkan and it is very popular among men in South-Asia. A sherwani signifies the rich traditional fashion style of India as it is a traditional outfit of Indian men. It signifies elegance and style. A scarf is also used which is draped over one or both the shoulders.

The sherwani signified dignity and etiquette of the nobility and it used to be the court dress of the nobles of Turkish and Persian origin. In India, the sherwani is worn on formal occasions and it is the national dress of Pakistan for men. A sherwani carries a regal feel.

Sherwanis look elegant as they fuse the best of both the eastern and the western styling. A sherwani is a typical attire of the North Indian and the Punjabi weddings.
