The folk dress of Tibet looks charming. Especially their charming outerwear called “chuba” that can tell so much about the wearer. In the past, there was a tradition for Tibetan men to wear a sheepskin chuba over the naked upper body, with the right arm left bare. It was the ultimate show of masculinity and machismo to go out like this during harsh Tibetan winters. Even today, in the 21st century, chuba still remains a significant part of Tibetan culture and lifestyle – the locals wear it in winter because no modern outer garment can be as warm and comfy.
