It has long tapering sleeves with multiple gathers on the chest and at the back. The sleeves are much longer than the length of the arm and when worn, are wrinkled upwards to form circular folds round the wrist. The ends of the sleeves have embroidered bands.

Mishra further says the upper fold of this double-breasted jacket is placed over the lower one and is tied on one side by strings or buttons. The upper front and back portion of the jacket is elaborately embroidered with floral and geometric patterns designs in colourful thread. The upper flap and end of the border is decorated with a golden border,” Mishra adds.
