Tibetan shirts are mainly white for men, mostly for women with printed silk cloth, generally said men's shirts have high collars, women's shirts are lapels, sleeves are longer than ordinary sleeves; The Tibetan garment is a large left shoulder and a small right shoulder, with buttons under the right armpit or a streamer made of colored cloth, which is worn on the body instead of the button, and the knot button is worn on the body or tied with a streamer.


Tibetan men's shirts

Although the northern Nagqu is divided into the Weizang area, the customs are not much different from the Khamba people, it can be said that the Khamba people are a pure pastoral area, so the shirts of the Nagqu area will be written into the Kham area.


The standard equipment for traditional Wei-Tibet farmers is a set of Xenon Tibetan robes, Xenon coats, Xenon pants, Tibetan boots, and a white "linen shirt".

This sackcloth shirt is called འབུ་རེ་ in the Weizang region. It is said that this cloth comes from India, and some of it is also produced in Tibet. This kind of clothing is actually very intolerant to wash because it is easy to shrink and is especially easy to wrinkle, I see that most people wear it for the New Year and holidays and then press the bottom of the box. Some elderly people wear it every day, and for them not wearing Tibetan clothes is like Han people not wearing underwear and underwear.


The Kham region has a vast area, involving pure agricultural areas and pure pastoral areas, as well as semi-agricultural and semi-pastoral areas, and as an intermediate area in Tibet, it plays an excessive role.

The Khamba people also love linen shirts, but the traditional Khamba shirt sleeves are very wide and long sleeves.
