- Deccan is really, really new to me, so I have a few questions as well.
There is a line above the jama's crossed neck. Is that an under garment?
About 2" under his right arm is a triangular seam/decoration.
What is that, in the Uncle Rashid's diagram there isn't anything like
- I really don't know anything about Deccan, but I would bet he has on an
undershirt. It is also possible that it is a "fill-in" panel. Some
traditional jamas (by traditional, I mean late 19th or early 20th
century) have a seperate panel that fills in the neckline.
I think that triangular seam is a cutout that allows the jama ties to
show. Normally, a jama will show ties only on one side, because on a
double-breasted outfit one side ties on the outside, and the other ties
on the inside. (due to the nature of an "overlap").
The way to verify what is going on with those triangular seams is to
look at many many pictures until you find one or more similar outfits
pictured from the side or the back. (not always possible, and sometime
it takes years to find it)
