Thobes and Galabiyyas – A Muslim mens guide to style!

When it comes to fashion dresses, the very first thought coming to mind is Women’s dresses. But the trend is changing rapidly. Now Men’s dresses are also advertised on a large scale online. The Islamic men clothing is no exception. There is a common myth prevailing that normally Muslim Men wear long robes only. This is true only partly.

The Islamic clothing for men, worn in Arabic and African countries falls in this classification and can match this description though. But in all other countries, in India and abroad, Muslim men evince great interest in wearing the most trendy, modern and stylish clothes – of course without crossing the religious fervor.

Their desire is met fully and conclusively by online Muslim dress stores. Here are some more details and guidance for Muslim men in this regard.

Popular Muslim Men’s Clothing:

If you visit the online outlets that sell Muslim women’s modest dresses, there are separate sections filled with eye-catching Islamic men clothing varieties also. The attires are fabulous and designed by experts highly familiar with contemporary trends.

A “Thobe” is traditional Arabian clothing (also spelt as Thawb or Thaub). The Arabic word Thawb means “garment”. The sleeves and neck are designed to wear conveniently by men folk. It is ankle-length tunic or outerwear. White is the traditional color, but trendy fashion Thobes are designed in an array of colors, to suit the taste of the wearer.

Similarly, a Galabiyya (also spelt as Jalabia in Arab countries) is an outerwear worn by both men and women in the middle-east countries. But present day Galabiyyas are designed most attractively as menswear, with assorted designs, necks, embroidery work and even prints in multiple-colors.

These Galabiyyas you watch on online showrooms are well-crafted, stylish as well as comfortable to wear on any occasion, anywhere and everywhere. Best thing is you need not compromise with the religious notions about the way men should wear modest dresses.

Select your Thobes and Galabiyyas carefully:

The favorable factor about these two Islamic clothing for men is they are versatile and can be worn on any occasion. For celebrations, functions, and parties you can pick somewhat flashy looking fabrics; cotton Arabian Thobe for comfortable wearing; V neck linen Thobe for casual appearances; or long-sleeve black Saudi Arab Thobe for religious gathering and meeting other friends etc.
