It is a color ubiquitous in the dress of local men. They wear a full-body gown, dishdasha, and head-piece, guthura. Why does it have to be white? There's nothing wrong with the color itself, but imagine this: There are in the country, say a population of 250,000 local adult and young-adult men. They each have 10 identical outfits, all the same cut and same design of full-body white gown and matching white head-piece. They wear one of these each day to school, to work, to weddings, to funerals, to parties, to view a soccer match, to go for a drive, to shop in a mall, to pray in a mosque... you get the picture. The same gown, the same color, on 250,000 men, for any occasion, at any time, every single day of every year. White!
