    Local dress doesn't look right on an American!

    by heplion Updated Mar 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While walking through the bazzar, I bought some traditional Uzbek clothing for my father. As you can see, it just doesn't look quite right on a westerner....

    The long robe is called a Chipan and can be worn indoors or out. While I was there, it was unusually cold (-15C!!!) and many of the locals were wearing their Chipans outside. They can be purchased at teh market for about $10. There are also more decorative ones, worn usually at weddings.

    The hat is a Tubityeka. The one I got for my father is actually a woman's, however, t was more colorful and I thought it might look better sitting on his curio than the typical men's which is usually black with a white pattern. Again, they can be bought at the market for about $5.

    The milk lady

    Every morning we would hear the milk lady crying "MILK.." except in Uzbek....She would stay in the street until all her milk was sold. People would come out with jugs or other containers to get them filled.

    What is incredible in uzbekiston is that you meet people from russia, china, iran, mongolia, kazaksthan, turkmenistan, khirgiztan.....and they all look so different. There is a great mix of faces and culture and that is something i love there. you will see too on the picture that uzbek women lobe the colors on their dress and it's really funny to see when you are in the street.
