Roots

ACCOUTERMENTS means clothes and, more recently, equipment. Webster's offers Latin consuere (to sew), and the AmericanHeritageDictionary (AHD) presents the IE “root” syu (to bind, sew). Webster’s treatment of ACCOUTER (to dress) has it come from Latin ad, to + custos, keeper.

These etymons are far from the necessary K-D or K-T sewing term seen in French couodre (to sew).  French couture is sewing.

Just as a COUTURIER(E) is a tailor or seamstress, so a חיט K[H]aYaD  is a tailor. The Biblical "thread" is the   חוט   K[H]OODT (Genesis14:23).

ACCOUTER, ACCOUTRE, COUTURE and more all tied together by the same thread. For other words thought to come from a fabricated Indo-European “root” syu  – see  SEAM. For more words linked to K[H]OODT, see CHAETA and GUT.

Arabic chayt (thread) is unraveled further to ata (the Rumanian thread) and ito (the Japanese thread).
