Male Traditional Attires in Nigeria

Change they say is constant. But the beauty, elegance and glamour of Nigerian men in traditional attires never change. It is almost impossible not to describe a Nigerian chap perfectly dressed up in traditional attire as drop-dead.

In Nigeria, the diversity between ethnic groups is easily perceptible due to the assortment of ornaments, embellishments and patterns they employ in adorning their traditional attires to mirror their cultural heritage, history and style.

It’d take more than an article to get into details about all the traditional attires in Nigeria. Therefore, this post will explore five male event attires in Nigeria (in no particular order!)

Agbada

The agbada traditional outfit projects supremacy, elegance and influence. The agbada is basically a flowing gown with foldable wide sleeves. It is usually worn on a two-piece Sokoto (trouser) and buba (round-neck shirt) and a matching cap. The agbada is mostly worn to ceremonies like weddings and burials.

Jalabiya

The Jalabiya is common among the Hausa, Kanuri and Fulani. It is a long gown worn by Northern men and women. It is mostly used by Muslims at religious gatherings and obligations. Today, jalabiya is widely accepted because of its simplicity and comfort.

Kaftan

Another traditional wear emerging from Northern Nigeria is Kaftan. Kaftan is originally worn by the Hausas, but today it has become very popular in Nigeria because of its simple and minimalist style. The Kaftan is a two-piece clothing with a sleeved garment and a long pant. It can be worn to any occasion.

Isiagu

The Isiagu is predominant in Eastern Nigeria. The traditional outfit is a woven or knitted top or shirt prepared specially for weddings and other important traditional ceremonies. It is often worn with a red hat (for titled chiefs only) and a long piece of fabric tied around the waist.
