toga definition and meaning

What is a "toga"?

A toga is a traditional garment that was worn by male citizens of Ancient Rome. It was a loose-fitting piece of clothing made from a single piece of fabric that was draped over the wearer's body and fastened at the shoulder with a fibula or pin. Togas were usually made from wool and were quite heavy, making them impractical for everyday wear. Instead, they were reserved for formal occasions and were often worn by senators, magistrates, and other high-ranking officials. The color and style of the toga varied depending on the wearer's social status and the occasion for which it was being worn.
