  1. I’ve been wearing djellabas for many years daily here in San Diego, California. A few things I’ve learned and experienced.
    Strangers on occasion will stop to ask what I’m wearing. Jedi? Monk? A religious thing? Most seem just curious. The exception is teenage boys at a safe distance racing by in cars. I just ignore them. People I see everyday just take it for granted and it’s no big deal.
    Don’t wear a solid white one in the USA because it can be mistaken for KKK robes, a racist organization.
    The biggest maintenance problem with the poorly-made ones is that the button knots come off. If you are buying one in person, be sure to check that they are securely fastened. Well-made ones don’t have this problem.
    Unless you’re in a sand storm (extremely unlike here) or in a wet downpour, I think it looks silly to put the hood completely over your face. Just fold the front of the hood back to reveal your face while keeping your head covered as necessary.
    If you are also considering the burnoose, my advise is don’t bother. They’re more trouble than they’re worth.
