Gho, Kira & Rachu
Wearing a Gho
The gho, when first put on, should reach almost to the ground. Fold the slesves of the tego (shirt) back to form cuffs. Tuck the right front panel into the left and bring the left panel over to the right.
Grasp the gho at the sides and fold towards the back. Gather the material at your waist until the hemline is above the knee (the king wears his below the knee).

The gho is secured with a kera (narrow woven belt) which forms a pouch. You need shoes and knee-high socks to complete the outfit. Pants are worn under the gho in winter and tucked into the long socks.
