As requested the men are wearing
their national dress, the Gho a long tunic similar to a kimono,
Beneath is worn a white shirt with long sleeves turned back at the cuff.
The robe is lifted from ankle to knee with a sash, the excess fabric in
the skirt forms a pleat at the back. On the very slim it is edge
to edge, the bigger the
figure the wider the pleat. This is teamed with knee high socks,
plain or Argyle patterned, with dress, athletic or hiking shoes. Only
the King and the senior Abbot wear the Gho below the knee.
Bhutan is the

national dress (literally) than the women
