A Jodhpuri suit (Hindi: जोधपुरी सूट) or Bandhgala is a formal evening suit that is given an Indian name but based on a style that originates from the west and was popularized during the British Raj of India. Also known as Jodhpuri Suit,[1] it is a western suit- product, with a coat and a trouser, at times accompanied by a vest. It brings together the western cut with Indian hand-embroidery escorted by the Nehru collar.[2] It is suitable for occasions such as weddings and formal gatherings.

The material can be silk or any other suiting material. Normally, the material is lined at the collar and at the buttons with embroidery. This can be plain, jacquard or jamewari material. Normally, the trousers match that of the coat. There is also a trend now to wear contrasting trousers to match the coat colour.
