Boys wearing khet partug
Khet partug (Pashto: خت پړتوګ, khət paṛtūg), or khat partoog, is a type of shalwar kameez traditionally worn in Afghanistan and the mostly Pashtun dominated parts of western and northwestern Pakistan.
The khet is the upper garment which is loose and slightly tightened at the waist and is more like a tunic or a robe, similar to a smock with wide sleeves and reach below the knees. The khet does not traditionally have side slits, and is worn with a belt at the waist.
The partug is the lower garment which is very loose and full of pleats, with folds all around the waist and made of yards of material. Khet partug is also similar to the costume worn by men dancing the attan.
