They dont wear pants because they live in a freaking desert genius. Now tell me, why do americans wear shorts?
It's culture again. Don't underestimate the power of the family. As well as status: if a briklayer get to be CEO, he will flaunt certain things for
his family and certain things for his new position in Western society.
True global citizens try the dress style they find as they arrive and understand why it is done. If I am scheduled to give a reading to a Wall Steet
Banker, I would certainly wear pants and maybe a suit and ties. Although I may wer just a jeans and a sweater to show my difference. At home I hang
out in hippie dresses and Chinese exercise dresses and sometimes just in a T-shirt...
I happen to dislike people wearing shoes in my home place because I do Yoga and yes, I can sleep on futons. I wear a headdress because I wam cold in
the winter and I had gotten used to the warm and humid climate in virginia for over ten years... People often find that funny. The other day I wore a
rolled up ski mask in a store and bought a beer. A local drinker remarked on my cap. I jokingly said that's because I go to a terrorists" training
and there it is obligatory... He laughed so hard... Then he asked if we killed Jews. I (again jokingly) said yes, but we are all getting tired of
if... He laughed even harder.
(Well, my wife is Jewish as well as my daughter so obvipisly I meant that as a joke which he took - but he could have been a racist right winger for
all lI know...
