The dishdasha is the traditional Omani men dress. Quite often a white, ankle-length garment (but can be made in other colors too, mostly earth tones). It has a long slit opening in the center of the chest, a long tassel hanging down from the neckline (off to the side), long loose sleeves, a very specific cut and specific pattern of embroidery around the wrists, neckline, across the back at the shoulder blades and around the slit opening.
