I was stopping at a traffic light when i glanced at the car next to me then back again at the traffic light.. few seconds later i was thinking chinna fe shay '3ala6? i looked again to my right and to me surprise the guy behind the wheel was wearing a white 3gaal!!
ee .. a white one!
gilt akeed it's some kind of new habbah
awal marrah adree ena fee 3gal abyath! thought that 3gaal's are either black aw black oo emthahhab..
so i did a quick search about it and found out that il 3gaal used to be white until ppl switched to black after the defeat of arabs in palestine to express their sorrow... very interesting!

UPDATE: it is also said that ayam awal religious men used to wear it.. thanx fastidious babe for that info ;)
