Their dress is extremely scanty: a pair of long blue drawers, and a kind of checkered plaid, a part of which is flattened round the waist, and the other thrown over the shoulder, with a mean turban, form their clothing and equipage. The chiefs are distinguished by wearing some heavy gold bracelets on their wrists, and sometimes a chain of the same metal bound round their turbans, and my being mounted on better horses: otherwise no distinction appears amongst them.
