The history of Khmer clothing during the Longvek, Srei Santor, Oudong and the French Protectorate eras is, for the time being, scholarly terra incognita. The sampot hol comes in over patterns and three to five colors yellow, red, brown, blue and green. There was a sort of epaulette sewn onto the shirt but arching upwards like Indra's bow, a Chinese style from the Tang Dynasty.

There are four principal variations: Patterns are usually formed with animal, geometric or floral motifs. Both Sampot Phamuong and Sampot Hol are believed to have originated from the original sampot in the Udong Era , as the word phamuong comes from the Siamese language , in which pha mean fabric and mung means indigo. Sampot Hol was introduced as a ceremonial skirtcloth to the Thai court as sompak poom or pha poom in the 19th century.
The Khmer king ordered his people to wear sampots as the request of Chinese envoys in the Funan era; so Khmer culture affected Siamese society first. The Thai people adopted the Khmer sampot ; then they adapted and developed it to become the sampot phamuong which was in turn adopted by the Khmer.
The words sampot , sampot chang kben, sampot hol and so on are entirely Khmer. The cultural influence ran both ways. The Khmer sampot with its many variations was generally regarded as the national dress of Cambodia. But variations in clothes sharply indicated position in a firm social hierarchy, as well as regional and period changes. New fashions were slowly passed down to the generations, though some clothing styles disappeared only to be restored in a later period.
Clothing styles in the first Cambodian period were overwhelmingly influenced by India ,  at least until the Khmer king at the request of Chinese envoys ordered his subjects to wear the sampot. Despite some similarities, men and women wore distinct clothing styles. Noblemen and royalty wore the Sampot Chang Kben in everyday life with the chest exposed. Varieties of Yantra tattooing in ancient Khmer script were inscribed on their bodies for spiritual protection.
With the spread of Hinduism across the country, the King wore a crown with different colored corners to show his royalty. Short, straight hairstyles were worn by non-royal courtiers; the chignon or topknot was typically reserved for royalty.
Unlike the rich, the poor wore a simple straw skirt around the waist or one made of animal skin or cotton. They had no jewellery but wore hairstyles similar to those of the rich. Clothing styles in this period bore certain resemblances to those in Funan ; however, according to the bas-belief at Vat Phou , a surviving ruin of Chenla, its national costume differed significantly from that of Funan excepting the headdress worn at that time only by the king. In the Khmer Empire or Angkor period, Khmer styles moved firmly away from the Indian styles of earlier periods.
At the same time Khmer culture spread its influence far beyond the boundaries of the Empire. Among the Khmer excluding vast numbers of hill-tribe slaves , both men and women wore their hair tied up in a knot. All were naked to the waist with a cloth around the hips.
In public they wore a larger cloth over the smaller one. From the king down, social distinction was marked by the quality and decoration of the cloth. Only the king was permitted to wear cloth fully patterned with flowers. His head was also wreathed with flowers when he was not wearing a Buddha-like gold crown. On his fingers and toes he wore bracelets encrusted with gold and pearls. The palms of his hands and soles of his feet were dyed crimson. He carried the gold sword of office in public.
Parasols , as extensions of clothing, were severely graded in number and gilding from the king's eight or more parasols down to a Buddhist monk's one. The king's subjects' clothes were various reductions of the royal ensemble. Court officials and members of the royal family were permitted cloth showing a design in scattered flowers; low officials were limited to two flowers; male commoners had none, though common women were permitted to crimson their feet and hands and wear a cloth showing two flowers.
Contemporary inscriptions and bas-reliefs of the temples at Angkor, especially Angkor Wat and the Bayon, show that the "cloths" were various forms and widths of Sampot , worn as skirts by women but hitched up into trousers or shorts by men for military action or labour.
Zhou Daguan reported that the common women had no hair ornaments, though some wore golden rings or bracelets and a metal belt. Beautiful girls were sent to the court to serve the king or his family; like concubines and other court servants, they wore crimson markings on the crown of the head.
The topknot allowed a long ponytail, worn over the shoulder. Temple bas-reliefs show how celestial apsaras were conceived. The Sarong Kor was a round decorative collar , red coloured, highly visible, worn just below the neck and embellished with detailed gold-colored copper ornaments and beaded designs. The dancer added a loosely decorated band of beads worn crosswise called a sava. Her Sampot was more highly decorated than usual, with two knots at the waist.
The right knot is long but the left knot design is more charming and fashionable. The waist has a highly ornate belt decorated with warped, spear-like tips draped on a red cloth.
The most-used jewellery is at the ankle, dangling from the ears or round the wrists. Most striking of all is the apsara's crown: These were worn by royal princesses, sculptured female divinities, female dancers and female musicians. Angkor court ladies' dress was little different from the court dancers'.
However, bas-reliefs show the costumes of Queens Jayarajadevi and Indradevi to have a unique sava in a glittering gold floral print instead of apsara beading. Queen Indradevi 's crown has ten points and a large diamond in the center holding her headdress in place. After the sack of Angkor in about by the Thai, Cambodian survivors lost their awareness of the old way of living, but developed new modes influenced by uniquely Khmer forms of thinking, with more affinity to Buddhism than the former Hindu influences.
There was a sort of epaulette sewn onto the shirt but arching upwards like Indra's bow, a Chinese style from the Tang Dynasty. Criss-crossing the front were the kse-sangvar , chains of rank forming an X as they cross over one another, on top of them a diamond shaped pendant. Below are knee-length, leg-hugging trousers decorated at the hem, covered by a Chang Kben descending to the thigh and with a belt at the waist. Other accessories include a rectangular loin-cloth at the front and sometimes two others on the side that look like fish tails.
These pieces date from the Angkor era. The King wears a crown similar to one from the Angkor period, but with sharper points and higher. Men mostly went shirtless until they were sufficiently wealthy to find a suitable top. Ordinary Khmer males' attire was a wrap like a Chang Kben in several colours, but lifted to the thigh and strongly hugging the lower body to free it for physical work.
Noblemen wore a round collared shirt with a long pleat at the front and four pockets at the side. Most males wore their hair long. Women in this era wore highly decorated garments. Young women wrapped themselves in two metres of fabric in chang pok style, revealing a small part of the stomach.
This fabric was usually decorated with several colours and pieces of silver, made of heavy or soft cotton depend on the wearer's wealth.

Was nice to work there A typical day was changing floor plans every other day. Learning new dynamics of the business was a plus. The culture was challenging at times because of the customer base. Fun workplace with the right people.
If you have a good team this job can be fun. However if you want to make a lot of money thos job is not for you. It may help during the holiday season with a little extra cash. Good opportunity for advancement.
I learned how to unload freight and stage displays. I advanced to assistant manager fairly quickly. My manager was fun to work with, always making me laugh. The worst part of the job was the pay.
Thers no advsncement and part time employees don't have benefits or dircet deposits. You get to try the new clothing first, you can also use your discount on sale items! Which is fantastic because they let you know in advance what is going to drop in price, so if you have a very nice manager like I did you can put what you want aside until the sale begins.
When working at Avenue Clothing store it was a really tough job. You would have to manage the register and watch the customers. There is only two people on duty until one gets relief which would be based off the schedule that is made for the associates.
