Sometimes the braid on the ladies ones is very wide and elaborate and there is a tassle on the end of the hood. They might wear woolen ones, but I don't recall noticing any ladies in them (was not winter when I was there though)

It seemed to me that the mens styles were very traditional, and you didn't see as many young men wearing them. The ladies ones seemed to be fashionable though, lots of young trendy women wore them.

Thanks Magpie. That has truly clarified much and really interesting as well.
Made me smile about the leopard print.. in fact hysterical mad laughter at the thought of my aunt in leopard print..forsooth!!! Just thankyou thankyou.
