Arab National Dress

Can anyone clue me in on how to tell the difference between UAE nationals, Kuwaitis, Saudis, Qataris, Bahrainis, etc just by looking at the agal, jetra etc?

Well I know Jordanian shemaghs (arab scarves) are red and white and Palestinian ones are black and white.

When I was in DXB I asked and they said, the Dubaians usually wear white headgear, the Saudis and Kuwaitis red and white. I don't know how far along the region that stretches, because the Libyans usually don't wear anything apart from a black caps that are about half the size of a fez, but aren't hard.
