The streets of Sana’a brim with treasures.

Sure, the markets boast great finds, but a casual glance reveals a stunning ensemble of style donned by locals on a regular day.


Who: The Everyday Man


Location: Sana’a, Yemen


Secret: Keeping cultural accessories in the forefront. The Yemeni identity is intact.


Breakdown: Men sport their traditional Jambiyas (daggers) wrapped overtop draped fabrics (showing their personal style by choice of colour) and finishing it off with the western touch of a quintessential blazer or a sweater. The Yemeni style must-have? Why, a rifle of course!
