One of the most inportant questions some one would like to ask is, where is the origin of Sherwani? is this dress the dress of a particular class? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.153.32.20 (talk) 08:35, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Sherwani came from the British? Are you joking?[edit]

What is this nonsense?

"The Sherwani appeared during the period of British India in 18th century, as a fusion of the Shalwar Kameez with the British frock coat."

The origin of the Sherwani is in the Turko-Persian "Kaftan" (خفتان) which predates British rule in India by over a thousand years. Please cite some sources or remove this limerick. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.136.104.21 (talk) 19:22, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Your quite misinformed as well it seems. It originated in India and thats plan fact you're just going to have to deal with.

== why pakistan it chocken

pakistan did not even exist when this was made

Could the name have something to do with the Pashtun tribe, Shirwani, which became widespread throughout what is Punjab and its members were in important positions throughout North India? Furthermore, just because a name did not exist historically does not mean a culture, people and their history did not exist. India did not exist but Hindustan did - just as Bharat existed before Muslims conquered and renamed it. Sherwani was developed in Hindustan by descendants of Turco-Afghans, Mughals etc. just as they also gave Hindustan their adapted language, food, dress and customs etc. These are the antecedents of Pakistan. o — Preceding unsigned comment added by Moarrikh (talkcontribs) 23:08, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
