Men in most areas of Chad continue to dress traditionally, according to their individual ethnic background, although men in urban areas might wear Western clothing. Traditional Chadian Arab attire such as long robes called jalabiyas are worn by men in public, along with white turban-like headgear known as a tagaya. Muslim men wear outfits consisting of long robes with matching pants known as boubous, and in the southern tribes, they wear tunic outfits called complets.
Women wear wraps called rabott or pagne around their upper and lower halves, or in the case of married women, as an apron. They'll add a short-sleeved shirt with an elaborate patterned neckline. A 5-meter-long scarf called a lafai can be wrapped around the body in many different ways, and women put them on when going to the market or for special occasions.
