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 Matrix appears to be a combination of a Nehru jacket and a Sherwani, or a single breasted cassock.
Sherwani is very similar to the Achkan, worn in South Asia. It is worn over the Kurta and Churidar, aligarhi pajama, a salwar, or, in India, a dhoti also.
In India, a Sherwani is generally worn for formal occasions and especially for weddings by the groom, as it adds glamour and style, while still preserving the deep roots of the Indian Tradition.
