yes a kilt is NOT a skirt. and i'll have issues with any and all who want to say it is.
Generally a skirt doesnt contain 9 yards of material and an angry scotsman lol.
and while were at it a dishdasha is not a dress, a sarong as worn in se asia is not a skirt, and any other similar misconceptions.
i will be bringing my kilt to dubai so you can all see it out there, air conditioning built in!! lmao

And Its called "Wezhar"

Dishdasha is called "Kandoura"

The Hanging tail is called "Tarboush"

The black round thing is called "Agha'al"

The white Hijab is called "Ghutra"

And each and evrythuing has its significance for eg: the tarboush! - It reprsents the Tail of the Arabian Horse... sorry its too long to explain will tell ya later.

Nope! No underwears. I don't wear any, dunno about the others if they do or not.

Many non Khaleejis who wear Kandoura actually dont know how to tie the We'zhar so they always buy white pants from the shops and I always was suprised to see those pants around and they sell a lot, So u see anyone not suitable in a Kandoura than you know hes wearing pants.

Actually I dont blame them for wearing pants, bcoz when you wear a we'zar you have to take a deep breath in while you tie it to your waist, I mean really TIGHT! In the beginning your skin will be red and you will have problems breathing and stuff but later you will be fine. YOU cannot to wear a wezar if you have a stomach or you are fat.Its Impossible. Your waist as to be slim and your shoulders have to be wide so than only the kandoura will not touch the wezar underneath or else your wezar will fall of while you will be walking in the middle of city center :scared:

I suppose this is your way of informing us that you have a desirable body shape.
