Etymology 1

From Inter: etyl » la toga, "cloack" or "mantle". It started being used by thieves and vagabonds with the noun togman, which was an old slang word for "cloack". 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.
