Swazi traditional attire for men is both colorful and unique. The clothing is heavily influenced by the country's location near the equator, which results in a hot and humid climate. The typical outfit includes a long-sleeved shirt, a long skirt, and a head wrap. Shoes are not typically worn, as the ground is often quite dirty. The colors and patterns of Swazi traditional attire vary depending on the region of the country in which they reside.
The Swati men's attire consists of a long, white robe called a "lihle" that is worn over a brightly colored skirt.
