The clothes that we wear can say a lot about our personality. I believe in Vedic period clothing for men and women are different than that of us. If yes, what was the traditional attire for men and women in the Vedic period?

Note: Here I am asking about traditional clothing for men and women in the Vedic period, but not from Scriptures views (Does Hinduism have specific dress code guidelines in their dharma shastras (scriptures)? I'm already read this question there is significant difference). So I hope it might be helpful for people who think this question is already there?

In vedic period clothes were different according to persons professions and there were variety.
As seen from the Ramayana and Mahabharata Most of the clothes were without stitch.
People use to wear clothes as whole like Dhoti and sarees.
