A Kariba suit is a two-piece suit for men designed in Jamaica in the early 1970s to be worn on business and formal occasions as a Caribbean replacement for the European style suit. The style of the jacket is a formalised version of a safari jacket common in Africa. Worn without a shirt and tie, the Kariba suit is more comfortable clothing for a tropical climate.
