Chokha

 

a man’s overcoat made of cloth, popular in the past among Georgians and other peoples of the Caucasus. The chokha was similar to the common Caucasian cherkeska. Unlike the cherkeska, however, it had a stand-up collar and elbow-length sleeves with slits, and it came only to the knees. The chokha was often girded by a sash instead of a belt.
