Have you ever wondered how to determine where a person is from by the style of their thobe or abaya?
Maybe you were in a meeting or walking through mall, and you noticed the variation in clothing between people. This simple guide can be helpful in giving you a rough idea of where someone is from. As it feels like I’ve been in the region for such a long time, even though it’s only my second year, I can visually tell where someone is from now. But if you’re new to the region, use these simple illustrations to see if you too can get it right visually. Also, the women’s dress styles are highly interesting too.
Good luck with the spotting! 🙂
