The origin of the Nehru Jacket can be traced back to the Mughal years where it was called a Choga worn by the rich and powerful. With time it changed its face and became a hip-length tailored coat with mandarin collar. This attire became the favourite of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru and since then, it is drawing inspiration from his fashion statement which was etched forever on this jacket and that is how it got its name. Nehru jacket’s front is inspired on the Indian Achkans or Sherwanis but unlike an Achkan, it does not fall below the knees and interesting part to note here is that Jawaharlal Nehru never wore a Nehru jacket. This jacket was first designed in India but sold with this name in Europe and America, and later on recognised as a formal wear of Indian youth who began to wear it coupled with trousers. This is also called Bandh Gale ka Coat which is a ceremonial wear and surely to be found in every man’s formal collection. Earlier it was worn over a long kurta and was made of cotton or khadi but now, one can see it available in other fabric like silk, brocade, tussar etc. Nehru jacket too has had a makeover as now it is preferred in embellished form in array of colours and patterns. Designers have brought amazing results though it has never gone through a change in its basic form which is till date considered being chic and stylish.
Undoubtedly, this attire never lost respect or popularity. Rather it won global appreciation and approval and models have been found showcasing the apparel in the most fashionable manner, endearing it more as a formal and traditional wear which can never be considered to be outdated. Indian politicians have always found it to be extremely fascinating and their wardrobes have it in abundance. Bollywood movies too have endorsed and propagated them as the fashionable attire to be worn by stylish men with taste in classy things.
