The suit is the clothing the bullfigthers wear during the bullfight. Its name "suit of lights" comes from the lights that produce the sequins of the suit. It is made of silk embroidered with colored gold or silver in the case of the matador (only the matador may wear gold) and silver or azabache in the case of banderilleros.This suit comes from the traditional dress the Majos of the late eighteenth century wore and eventually became an exclusive clothing to exercise the ritual of bullfighting.The suit includes a Chaquetilla, which is a short and rigid jacket, opened under the arms to allow the movement of the arms of the bullfighter. Below the chaquetilla goes the shirt, the vest, the tie or neckerchief.The pants or Taleguilla is very tight and goes below the knee, adjusted by cords.(Report of wikipedia.es)
