While a little dark, you can see the traditional Kurdish male outfit in this McKenzie photo from the main market. Again there's the shimagh wrapped around the white kufi (just a bit of which you can see sticking out from the shimagh), the loose-fitting pants, the wrapped belt, and this time also a matching top as well.
Of course the market brings together everyone from the city so it's a great cross-section of styles. Note the guy to the far right who looks quite 'western'. Note also the guy with the machine gun in the distance and to the left. That's me.
