A Closer Look at the Thobe for Men
A Thobe, also known as a jubbah/thawb is a long garment, traditionally with long sleeves for men. It is particularly common for men amongst the Middle East to adorn themselves in thobes as part of their everyday wear. The purpose of the thobe is to correctly conceal a man’s awrah (from the navel to the knees). However many men wear it as a sign of piety, to beautify oneself or as a representation of culture.
As thobes are most popular in the Middle East, they are traditionally made from white cotton. This is so that the white fabric reflects the sun's rays, which results in aiding to keep the body cool in the scorching sun. Men in the Middle East also wore loose-fitting thobes for prayer and many other occasions such as weddings and religious celebrations.
In today’s society, men from all over the world choose to wear the thobe, not only as a symbol of their faith, but also due to its comfort and practicality.
A thobe is one of the most important and useful investments that you can make as part of your wardrobe.
