Baji (clothing)

Elderly wearing baji.

Baji (Korean: 바지) is a kind of traditional Korean pant that is part of the hanbok.[1][2] A baji is baggy and loose, so it is tied around the waist.[1] In the past, Korean men wore baji as outer clothing, but for women, it gradually became part of the inner clothing.[1] Today, women wear chima for their outer clothes.[1]
