Saudi Men's Formal Wear

The bisht is a loose flowing cloak worn over the white dress Saudi men normally wear.  It is generally worn on formal occasions, such as weddings, and is often adorned with gold trim.  The bisht can be made of wool, with good quality ones being made of camel hair.  They most often are seen in colors like black, brown, grey, or beige.  The long white flowing scarf would be the man's head covering accessory topped off with the round black ring called egal.

The gold trim is interesting on this one.
