Sarong for Men, Highest Comfort

Srilanka & South India


Srilanka: Sarongs are mostly worn by Srilankan men in rural as well as urban communities. It is often worn as only a night garment by upper social class people as there is an attitude that carries the garment as too traditional. Tamil-speaking people in Srilanka call the sarongs “Chaaram” or “Saaram”. As it has been taken as the garment worn by uneducated class people it was declined as a public attire. But there is an adopting trend for sarong as a fashionable garment that can be worn with national pride only on special occasions. It is known as “National” by some public figures so as to bring together the “common man” and their nationalism together.

South India: “Vetti” is the national element of clothing for men. This straight piece of fabric is tied around the thighs and is like a long unpleated skirt. The most common type for any occasion is the typical white sarong with a golden design sometimes just the border.
