They are not actually uniform clothes because the way they are wore and the pattern and make-up are different between the genders. The men are wearing the fashionable passion by making a pleat on both sides in front and tying them together at the waistline just below the umbilicus.
Overwrap them with a wide pleat at the front and insert the end on one side or unfold them back at the hips and put them into the opposite side of the waistline, usually with an adapted shirt that is carried only up to the cuff. Longyi are usually unstitched, but today they are available dressed; htamain can even be stitched like cowboy dresses.
