Discuss here!

What is a bisht, and why do Arabs wear it? Why was it given to Messi during the Qatar World Cup final? When and where is the bisht typically worn? How do you wear one? Does it come in different colours? Can a tourist wear it?

Mr Q is back to answer all these questions and more about the bisht, the traditional black robe worn over a thobe that became worldwide famous after the World Cup 2022!

Where can you buy a bisht? You can start at the Souq Waqif, but you can also choose from plenty of tailors around Doha. Mr Q's bisht is from Bisht Maraasm.
