Varieties and forms

However, they differ from the Indian ones in terms of the cut of their kameez. The salwar of Punjabi suits is cut straight and assembled at the ankles with a loose band strengthened with course material.
In rural areas of Punjab, the suits are called suthan. It is the revived form of the ancient svasthana. Svasthana were the lower garments that can be described as a type of trousers which was used during the Mauryan times by the ruling or rich classes. Suthan is a unisex garment which is now used as bottoms with suit pieces.
One more variety of Punjabi suits come from the Pothohar region of Punjab in Pakistan. They are named after the region they come from and hence are popularly called Pothohari suits. Its salwar resembles the wireless of the Punjabi suthan with some folds and the kameez is wide.
