There are few garments, or sets of them in the male section of the Attire language, that carry such instant recognition, or sexual potency, as the traje de luces, the suit of lights, so named for its dazzle and splendor.
The people who build these suits spend hundreds of hours in patient hand labor cutting, sewing, and above all, decorating with embroidery and other embellishments, these amazing creations. The end result is a suit of clothing that expresses the essence of our notions of the male in real form. Lean, strong, simple seeming, and yet possessed of a vast complexity of structure and adornment. It is the peacock ideal made manifest.
