A man's kaftan without a collar and sleeves, sewn by hand and made of deep dark blue factory cloth. On the back, below the waist, there are three slits dividing the kaftan's bottom into four laps, the so-called gills. The lining and trimming are made of red cloth. On the front, the pockets are covered with pentagonal lapels. Fastening with three pairs of hooks and eyes. The loose tunic is decorated with brass buttons and buttons made of nacre, as well as weeds from purl. These ornaments appear along the cut on the front, on the lapels of the pocket and in the back above the cuts. Around the neck there are three borders of 'Janina' stitching in the following colours: green, amaranth and yellow. On the front, in the lower corners of the loose tunic, the 'herringbone' motif was made with a machine sewn backstitch,.
Loose tunic was a typical element of the Kraków costume worn by affluent men. This type of ornamentation was characteristic of the villages located north-west of Kraków. Sometimes these loose tunics had a standing collar. Next to sleeveless loose tunics there were also loose tunics with sleeves, decorated similarly (but without weeds). Sleeveless loose tunics were usually worn under a russet coat, and the loose tunics with sleeves were outerwear.
