A suit is a matching set of clothes, consisting primarily of a jacket and trousers.

Suits for men have a long history. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the emergence of "the present-day suit began in the 1660s at the courts of Louis XIV of France and Charles II of England."

By the 1860s, the suit had reached its modern form, and it has changed little in the nearly two centuries since. During the twentieth century, women began wearing suits paired with skirts and later pantsuits.
