Nehru jacket is a coat worn by both men and women that resembles a sherwani or achkan. It is a hip-length coat with a mandarin collar. It has a cultural evolution as India had been influenced by various invaders hence the lifestyle has also evolved accordingly.
The Nehru jacket has evolved since the 10th century but that garment was not worn as a half suit. It was worn as shirts under a full-length coat and not solely as a coat. The design kept on changing and it was inspired by the frocks worn by the Mughals which were called ‘Kurta’ and was paired with a waistcoat or full-length coat. The kurta also evolved and with some changes was known by the name ‘Achkan’. Achkan is popular in present times as well. Achkan or Sherwani are popular among the Indian and are worn in festive occasions giving an ethnic look.
Nehru jackets became popular from the 1940s and till date, it has its charm in mostly every male wardrobe. Nehru jackets are in trend even among women and girls these days. It was earlier known as ‘Band Gale Ka Coat’ meaning ‘Closed Neck Coat’. Achkan and Nehru jackets are more or less similar in design except for the length. The length of Achkan falls below the knees whereas Nehru jackets barely cover the hips. The most interesting fact about Nehru jacket is that Pandit Nehru never wore a Nehru jacket. The name of the jacket was inspired by the type of Kurta or Achkan he wore. Pandit Nehru was himself a fan of Sherwani and we usually wore a Sherwani. This brought the similarity in the names of the two outfits.
