Sherwani is a long coat-like garment worn in South Asia, very similar to an Achkan or doublet, and is traditionally associated with the Northern Indian, and especially with the Muslim aristocracy. It is worn over the Kurta and Churidar, Khara pajama, a shalwar. It can be distinguished from the achkan by the fact that it is often made from heavier suiting fabrics, and by the presence of a lining.
The Sherwani originated in Indian Subcontinent and was court dress of nobles of the royals of India, before being more generally adopted in the late eighteenth century.
