The term ‘pyjama’ crept into the English language from Hindustani, a language from which Urdu and Hindi originated. The word originally derives from the Persian word ‘Payjama’ meaning ‘leg garment’. It was due to the British colonialization of India that the term ‘pajama’ and the dress spread to other parts of the world. In India, one will often find politicians wearing white starched Kurta Pajama. As a tradition, civilians wear this dress during festivities and other special occasions like holi, religious ceremony, etc. Punjabi kurta pyjama is common among people in punjab and pakistan.

“You don’t need a stylist to tell you that a sweatshirt looks great with jeans. But it’s more of a challenge to keep up the smartness to make it look smart and casual.”

This sweatshirt in particular is so comfortable because its sleeves are set in rather than “raglan”. Raglan means that the shoulder of the sweatshirt seems to run along the corners instead of from the neck to the shoulders. This set in sleeve makes the sweatshirt more jumper like, and therefore a one notch smarter.
