  • raiment      \RAY-munt\
  • DEFINITION   noun  : clothing, garments


  • DID YOU KNOW?  If you seek a fancy word to describe the clothes on your back, you have no shortage of colorful options. There's "apparel" and "attire," certainly, as well as "garments." "Habiliments" and "vestments" suggest clothes of a particular profession (as in "a clergyman’s vestments"), while "garb" is effective for describing clothes of a particular style (as in "traditional Scottish garb"). If slang is more your game, try "duds," "rags," or "threads." "Raiment" tends to appear mostly in classical contexts, though it pops up from time to time in contemporary English from authors looking to add a touch of formality. "Raiment" derives from Middle English, where it was short for "arrayment," from the verb "arrayen" ("to array").
