The male cape is a big square cloth with strings at the two opposed corners. When putting on the cape, the knot is tied on the right shoulder, while a portion of the cloth is stuffed into the left waist fasten girdle to cover up the edge of the skirt. In this way the individual can avoid being exposed when seated and also to show their appropriate deportment. (Wei-Ting Pan / Vawni Pan)
