The clothes used by the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) were kurta, lungi and jubbah; sometimes he used to put on chuddar. Also the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) bought pyjama and according to some weak hadith he wore it and asked his companions to wear the same. He used to wear amamah (turban).

كان أحب الثياب إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم القميص (شمائل ترمذى) قال ابن القيم فى الهدى : اشترى السروايل والظاهر أنه اشتراه ليلبسه ثم قال و روى أنه لبس السراويل وكانوا يلبسونه فى زمانه و بإذنه . (فتح البارى : 10/317).
