And here I thought I’d continue seeing memes of food and Monday morning blues for a hashtag but no- I learned something new instead.

Up until Sunday, I (like a lot of others) thought that Saudis wearing different-hued bishts was more a fashion statement or a take on the classic bisht with an added flair.

But boy, was I wrong

Thanks to a journalist’s curiosity on Twitter, some of us learned something new

And the question was as follows…

‘Does the color of a man’s bisht signify anything?’

Bloomberg reporter Vivian Nereim took to Twitter on Sunday to ask about why some men wear coloured bishts, elucidating if it were a signification of something or merely a fashion statement.

Tweeted like a true journalist, her question led to a series of exciting discoveries based on her followers’ response…

‘It signifies what day of the week it is’

To which, another user concured…

‘This was made official during King Faisal’s time’

Twitter user @tmafaisal further legitimised his answer to Nereim’s question by saying that the rules of wearing a different colored bisht for every day of the week was officiated during the late King Faisal’s time.

‘Individually you can wear what you like, but in the Royal Court there is a color for every day for the King and Ministers’

So interesting.

Now we’ll probably watch the Saudi royals’ bisht color and allocate it with the day of the week
