The term Agbada (Eng-voluminous attire) is the Yoruba name for a four-piece male attire found among the Yoruba people of modern day south-western Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, West Africa. It consists of a large, free-flowing outer robe (awosoke), an undervest (awotele), a pair of long trousers (sokoto), and a hat (fìla)...  

Agbada can also be found in other parts of the the continent of Africa as well. It is known as mbubb (French, boubou) among the Wolof of Senegambia and as riga among the Hausas' and Fulanis' of the West African savannah from whom the Yoruba allegedly adopted it. 

Before now,it was worn throughout much of Nigeria by important men, such as kings and chiefs, and on ceremonial occasions like weddings and funerals etc.

However, the opposite appears to be the case now.A recent trend has showed that Agbada looks just as good on women...
