A Pathani suit is a traditional outfit worn by boys in the South Asian region, particularly in Pakistan, India, and Afghanistan. The Pathani suit typically consists of a long-sleeved tunic, known as a kurta, which falls below the knee, paired with loose-fitting trousers, known as salwar, that taper at the ankle.
The tunic of the Pathani suit is typically loose-fitting, with a collarless neckline and a buttoned placket that extends to the mid-thigh. It may feature decorative embroidery or embellishments on the collar, cuffs, and hemline. The trousers are also loose-fitting, allowing for ease of movement, and may be gathered at the ankle with elastic or a drawstring.
