Lawung- Islamic Designer Fashion for men



Here are a few of my favourite designs from their menswear and children's wear range.






Price: £55

This design is a combination between a traditional thaub and jumper. The charcoal colour and the design gives this thaub a smart/casual look.




Price: £55

You won't find many thaubs in this colour. The jumper style sleeves look comfortable and practical.








 




Price: £50

The military jacket style buttons on this thaub really set it apart from other thaubs you may have seen before










 Price: £36.99

The more traditional Saudi style thaub with a twist, the design on the neckline of this thaub gives it class.









 Price: £39.99

Similar neck design as the white one above but with a printed fabric on the inner layer.






Price: £49.99

This item features sincere attention to the 'small details' of the Thobe providing it with a unique and refreshing image.
The garment features side packets, loose yet made to measure style tailored fit for a smart-causal appearance.
The quality of this garment is guaranteed, and it is manufactured using premium poly cotton and Scottish wool.



 










Price: £36.99

Another simple and smart design with zips and pockets to incorporate that western style. [Also available in children's sizes]


Price: £50.00

This product is manufactured utilising premium cotton, it specialises with hidden inserts consisting of high quality wool manufactured from Scotland and Acrylic which defines strength and gives it a more comfortable fit making it a 'one of a kind' within the fields of islamic fashion
This muslim garment has been specially treated for maximum comfort. All materials used have been tested in highly sophisticated UK laboratories to ensure perfect satisfaction.


 


 Price: £40.00

This product is manufactured utilising premium cotton, provides you with an exclusive design that entails a mix of two similar colours. It offers you a look that has never been seen before in previous islamic fashion couture.  








Price: £50.00

Super smart and great for formal wear. I'm not too keen on this colour as personally I think it looks a bit too feminine, but never the less a great design. 









Price: £49.99

'Come rain or shine thaub' this innovative design includes a detachable hood and looks good both with and without the hood. Great for British weather I say!










 Price: £40.00

Love this design. Has an attached stripy snood scarf, definitely something different but a good different and very stylish. [for some reason when I saw this it reminded me of 'where's wally?' lol] 






Price: £49.99

Never trial and tested within the Islamic market ever before, Lawung have created shimaag (you know the palestinian arab scarf) attached thaub, this item is one of a kind (patent pending)
The cloth has a unique shimmer effect and is manufactured utilising premium poly cotton fabric.









Price: £40.00

Smart yet casual white thaub. The material looks comfortable and easy to maintain. It's a thaub collection must have just because of its formal simplicity. 










 Price: £35.00

Another simple white thaub. Suitable for winter due to jumper style collar and cuff. Comfy and practical.













 Price: £40.00

Smart and functional day wear. Contrasting colours and asymmetric pattern on pockets. 











[not available in kids size yet, but is available in adult size]

Adoooorable outfit for a young child, although its not available yet I really hope its available soon because this thaub will definitely make your little one look soooo cute. [MashaAllah to the kid in the picture]








Price: Starts at £29.99

Another adorable design with a hood, practical and brilliant quality. 




















Price: Starts from £29.00

Two brilliant designs. Which child wouldn't want to wear one of these? Will keep them warm but not overheated due to the quality of the fabric 





















Price: Starts from £35.00

The simple white thaub for children with the lawung brand on the sleeve. Probably not best if he's a messy one. 







I first heard of Lawung at the GPU in 2008. I was really amazed by their designer thaubs (traditional Islamic long garment for men). They combine western fashion with Islamic clothing, appealing to the young Muslim generation born and brought up in the west as well as reverts, (confession: if I were a guy I would wear them).

This 3id I ordered a thaub for my little brother who is 7, although the thaub was of really good quality, again I came across one of Lawung's biggest problems...their sizing. I returned the thaub (paying for postage and packaging again) because the size I brought (ages 6-8) was far too small [and my brother is and average height for a 7 year old.] What I was looking for on their website was a size guide or even just a chart showing the length of each thaub in correspondence with its size. I would recommend the owners f Lawung to sort out their sizes and put up a guide on their site, as this is the only reason I would refrain from buying again.

However, I would like to applaud Lawung on their customer service (I got an almost instant reply to my e-mail). They always replied to my e-mail and refunded me for the product as soon as they received it (I decided not to exchange it as I wouldn't get it in time for 3id). So overall a 10/10 for customer service.

Another problem I came across is the availability of stock. I saw ones that I really liked but couldn't get them because they either weren't in stock altogether or the sizes I wanted weren't in stock. So if you do decide to order from Lawung keep that in mind.

The prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the garments and if you're ordering from the UK the delivery is quite speedy (not too sure about delivery from outside UK).

I love this brand just for the fact that they are making it easy to bring Islamic fashion into people's everyday lives. These thaubs can be worn in the office, out shopping, on special occasions, to dinner or just around the house.

While Muslim women rep the deen by walking out in hijab everyday, lawung brings the opportunity to Men to do the same. So what's stopping you? Hijab is modesty and modesty isn't just for the women.

"Say to
              the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their
              modesty...And say to the believing women that they should lower their
              gaze and guard their modesty;
...[Quran- Chapter 24, verses 30-31]
