The thobe (or thawb) is the long usually white dress that many Saudi men wear. Most Saudi men probably have at least a dozen thobes hanging in their closets, especially those who wear thobes to work. Most thobes shops will custom-make thobes tailored to each customer. There are many fabrics to choose from, as well as variations in styles like the collar, cuffs, buttons, pockets, embroidery, etc. Thobes usually have big hidden pockets on each side where men can keep their wallets, keys, mobile phones, and lipstick (just kidding - I was seeing if you were paying attention!).
