2forget 2 piece 'suit?' I was offered great one in HK then thought Oh myanmar will be cheaper but problem was in finding decent material for a suit in myanmar unless you take a polyester one Ha! HA1 instead of raw silk etc also if you mean Longhi then you can buy one for a couple of $'s, the local markets are the best place for that one

I am a big fan of Lunghis (what the are called in India), and wanted to buy a couple of good ones in Burma. But I had a hard time finding anything nice. I spent hours at a big market in Rangoon and asked at many stalls. They all brought up totally boring checkered Longyis.
When I pointed to a colorful Longyi worn by a local woman I was told that that sort of thing was only for women.
Eventually I bought one embroidered Longyi, much to the amusement of the local Burmese.
