Men’s clothing in Saudi Arabia is a mix of traditional and modern styles. The traditional dress for men is the thawb, a long, white, collarless robe that reaches the ankles. This is typically worn with a checkered red-and-white headscarf known as a ghutra and a black cord known as an igal. Men also typically wear sandals or dress shoes.
Modern clothing styles in Saudi Arabia are similar to those in other parts of the world. Men typically wear trousers and a shirt, either a button-down or a polo style. A jacket or blazer may be worn over the shirt, and dress shoes are the norm. Jeans can also be worn, especially in urban areas, but are typically not worn in more conservative regions.
When going out in the evening, men typically dress more formally. A suit and tie are usually the norm, although a blazer and dress shirt are also acceptable. In some cases, men may choose to wear the traditional thawb and headscarf.
In more conservative regions of the country, men may be expected to wear more traditional styles, such as a thawb and igal. Men are also expected to dress modestly, with no tight-fitting clothing or short-sleeved shirts.
No matter what clothing style is worn, it is important for men to respect local customs and traditions. Men who are visiting should be aware of the clothing expectations in the areas in which they are staying, and should dress accordingly. By dressing modestly and respecting local customs, visitors to Saudi Arabia can have a pleasant experience.
