Some fashion news.
In this picture you see several men. Three are wearing Western-style cargo pants with "safari vests" and short-sleeve shirts. Two of those are wearing baseball caps. The others are attired in more traditional clothing. The key point is that the choice of clothing here, like just about everywhere, is generational. The three dressed in Western attire are all young men in their twenties. The others are older men.
