jacket is a hip-length tailored coat for men or women, with a mandarin
collar, and with its front modelled on the Indian achkan or sherwani, a garment
worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India from 1947 to 1964. The
Nehru jacket is a variation of the Jodhpuri where the material is often khadi.
The Jodhpuri itself is an evolution from the Angarkha. Popularized during the
terms of Jawaharlal Nehru, these distinct Bandhgalas made from khadi remain
popular to this day
