Pajamas (US) or pyjamas (Commonwealth) (), sometimes colloquially shortened to PJs, jammies, jim-jams, or in South Asia night suits, are several related types of clothing worn as nightwear or while lounging or performing remote work from home. Pajamas are soft and loose garments derived from the Indian and Persian bottom-wear, the pyjamas. They originated in the Indian subcontinent and were adopted in the Western world as nightwear.
Pajamas in US English, spelt pyjamas in British English, often shortened to PJs or jammies, can refer to several related types of clothing. The original pāijāma are loose, lightweight trousers fitted with drawstring waistbands and worn in South and West Asia by both sexes. In many English-speaking nations, pyjamas are loose-fitting, two-piece garments derived from the original garment and worn chiefly for sleeping, but sometimes also for lounging, also by both sexes. More generally, pajamas may refer to several garments, for both daywear and nightwear, derived from traditional pajamas and involving variations of style and material. The word pyjama or pajama, which originally derives from the Persian word پايجامه, was incorporated into the English language during the British Raj through the Hindustani language.
