Chhin Chhaya: Dressing is an important part of work

Chhin Chhaya, 23, who works at the Asian International Justice Initiative in addition to being a Khmer Rouge trial monitor and a part-time radio presenter for Rasmey Hang Meas Radio, says he dresses casually when working as a radio presenter but fancies it up when he works as trial monitor with a dress-shirt and trousers.

“Most Cambodians place value on how people dress so I need to be careful with what I wear to work,” Chhaya said. “I feel confident when I look stylish at work, especially when I meet important people.”

The colours you wear are just as important as the style, “I normally wear warm colors and occasionally blue and white; it's what looks good on me,” he said.

To really stand out and look professional, Chhaya also sports useful accessories like a watch and a satchel to hold his supplies. He said: “When I wear a button-up shirt with trousers, I'll put a silver watch on; if I wear a T-shirt and jeans, I go with a leather watch.”

Shoes need to be suitable to the clothes you wear. Leather shoes look good with formal wear while sneakers should be paired with a T-shirt and jeans.

Some of Chhaya's clothes come pre-made from the market and others he has fitted at the tailor, “I always help with the design of my clothing when I have them made by a tailor.”​
