Sarong for men

Post by CufflinkGuru »

hey guys I'm new here :)
I found this forum when I am searching for a community to get ideas to improve an article recently published in my blog. When I look at the content discussed here it feels very much like I'm in the right place :) however, as I'm a new member I am not sure if it's okay to put a link in this post. If it's not okay to put a link moderators may remove the link but please keep this post so if anyone would like to read my post they could comment here. Then I'll send you the blog link ( via message or email? ). btw my Gmail is cufflinkgurupro@gmail.com if anyone would like to reach me directly via email :) Thank you very much guys hope I didn't violate any forum rules :wink:

Thank-you for the post to the blog. I own several lungi longyi s . I'm not sure if there's a singular, plural proper way of spelling of the word.
To the best of my knowledge all of mine (ordered off of eBay) were imported from Myanmar.
Nice light weight and very versatile. Great for lounging around.
The only drawback is lack of pockets, and elastic or ties for added security from falling down.
When tied well, it's not much of a problem.

Thank you for the very informative page, alot of Good pictures and information.

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

Hi mishawakaskirt
Thank you very much for sharing your opinion/knowledge of Sarongs. In my research for this article, I found that the Longyi from Burma is very colorful. If you don't mind could you post a few pics of yours? :wink:
About pockets, I saw some people on the beach use the Longyi shorts trick to make a huge pocket out of Sarong so they can carry kilograms in it :wink: I think that's the biggest pocket I have ever seen lol

Hi CufflinkGuru, welcome to the Cafe. I wear sarongs almost exclusively when I'm on holiday in the sun. Only I wear them folded longways so that the hem is knee or higher. So the effect is of a short skirt. The only time I wore it longer was one day or two after I got a little too much sun on my legs. I once had to return from holiday in a sarong. I deliberately took only one pair of trousers that were a bit tight on the waistband and when I put on a little weight on holiday I couldn't fasten the waistband. My wife moaned but there was really nothing she could do about it. It was interesting to watch how airport security approached "patting me down" to do the personal search!!!!
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I have updated the article with your point. Thank you very much for pointing out the importance of pockets in a sarong when I have almost forgotten that :wink:

Hi Sinned
Thank you very much for sharing your opinion/knowledge of Sarongs. It's another advantage of a sarong that it is very adjustable in your waist. I think I should mention that in the article as well :wink:
I could imagine the reactions of the airport security while they are approaching ya :lol: but I'm sure they were gentle while patting you down :wink:
