What is a Nehru Jacket
Nehru Jacket is a short sleeveless jacket with a high neck that is worn by both men and women.
Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of India. He attended Harrow and Trinity College. Like his father Mr.Motilal Nehru, he trained to be a barrister. Both men were very fashionable attired.
The Sherwani and the achkan were long coats similar to the frock coats worn by Englishmen. In contrast, the Nehru jacket is a long waist coat with a close neck collar which is also known as the mandarin collar.
It is also known as the bandhgala coat. The Nehru jacket was fashioned in the 1940s in India.
It is a coat worn on formal occasions and is typically associated with Indian politicians who tend to wear it.
Both men and women have adopted the Nehru jacket in recent times.
