I'm getting information from an organization here in the U.S. that's sponsoring a meeting in Yangon that, given the nature of local culture, we should "dress conservatively." They suggest that this means men should not wear shorts of short sleeve shirts. I imagine t-shirts would be even worse in their minds.
I can understand the need to dress "respectfully" when visiting temples, for example, but what about the rest of the time? Is a short sleeve shirt really going to be a problem? Is there a difference between plain or "work" shirts that are short sleeved vs., say, a Hawaiian shirt of something a bit more "loud"?
Thanks for your help.
