Anyone have any other ideas? (Trivia question)

There's an online trivia contest for number one responses to a family feud-like survey where I've been unablke to guess the #1 answer -- and it's driving me to drink. So I'm looking for additional answers (I'll list the ones I've tried below).

The question: name an item of clothing associated with a foreign country.

My tries (it gives you a "correct!" if you're right, but doesn't tell you the right answer for a week): beret, kimono, sari, serape, poncho, lederhosen, dirindly, wooden shoes, clogs, coolie hat, brassiere (K's guess), beefeater hat, tam o'shanter, and hula skirt (I know, but I was getting desperate!)

Any other suggestions?

Thanks -- now I can stop racking my brain!
(Also tried burnoose, chador, and sombrero on my own...)
I wish they'd publish what the numbers were -- it must have been very fragmented!

A question first - then some ideas

In reply to: Anyone have any other ideas? (Trivia question)
