Out for a Walk

Two men out on the streets of Jeddah.  The man  in white wears the traditional men’s dress called a thobe.  The other man wears the traditional Saudi red and white checked headgear called Ghuttra.   CORRECTION:  The red and white traditional checked scarf worn by men is called Shumagg; the plain white scarf is called the Ghuttra.

  1. Hi Elaine! Yes, you usually don’t see the ghuttra combined with a baseball cap! Thanks for commenting.

    The one in the ghuttra seems to have topped it off with a baseball cap! Thanks for giving the names of the garments. It’s hard to find that kind of information.
