Origin of Tog

  • From Latin toga, "cloak" or "mantle". It started being used by thieves and vagabonds with the noun togman, which was an old slang word for "cloak". By the 1700s the noun "tog" was used as a short form for "togman", and it was being used for "coat", and before 1800 the word started to mean "clothing". The verb "tog" came out after a short period of time and became a popular word which meant to dress up.

    From Wiktionary

  • Short for obsolete togeman from obsolete French togue cloak from Latin toga garment toga
