Thai clothes, fashion, and Getting Dressed in Thailand

 

Because of the many ethnic groups of Thailand, the various textiles, silks, and cottons have many threading patterns. Yet the structure is typically the same throughout Thailand.

 

Women: Women wear a skirt, a traditional lower piece called a pha sin or a tube skirt. The top is called hud sin and the midsection is called the tua sin.

 

Men: Men are not as tradition following as the women of Thailand. Men, however, wear chong koben as loin cloth that only exposed the thighs, on occasion. Other than that, they are just as modern as other countries.

Children: Typically dressed in uniforms during the day (polo tops, khaki bottoms) for school and pajamas during the night. Thai children are modern as well.
