Arab Minimalist



I thought for this post I’d change it up, I’ve been meaning to do this look-post for the longest time. About two years back I went for Umrah to the holy city of Makkah and Madina and everywhere I went I noticed how well the thobe and shemagh went together.

So while I was there I decided to get one tailored made and designed it myself. And trust me its amazing how a simple modest white sheet can look so elegant. I tried to keep it as minimalist as possible, but also included some finer details such as the gold cuff links.




I know a few of you might be thinking that I’m wearing eyeliner, hey hey I’m not! Hahaha it’s referred to as surma and was the practice of our Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). It has many benefits and also finishes the look nicely.

If you’d like me to do a tutorial on how to tie the shemagh (Ras Al Khaimah style) leave a comment and I’ll put one up on the blog.
