The Roman tunic

Scottish men get made fun of for wearing kilts. But how is the Roman tunic, which was worn by both men and women, structurally different from what we today consider a dress? (There are differences in width here and there, but the form isn't different, as far as I can tell.) Were there any significant differences between the men's tunic and the women's tunic to differentiate one from the other?
