Traditional Wear in History

 Persian miniature paintings employ both vivid and muted colors for clothing, although the colors of paint pigment often do not match the colors of dyes. Persian men and women usually wore a full-length pants called Shalvar. Undergarments for men were limited to a pair of short pants, called zir-šalvar (literally “under-pants”).Traditional Persian clothing, although not worn in urban areas, has been well preserved in texts and paintings throughout history.
