So in the west white and generally light colors are associated with innocence and the good while dark colors, especially black is associated with evil.
Now if you look at traditional clothing. Men - Black suit. Women - colorful or at a wedding specifically white
Now in the middle east, I've been told, it's quite the opposite. Black good, White sad. And women wear black men white
So how come men always get the colors associate with evil and sadness?

Generally in the west men wear clothing to make themselves look powerful and women wear clothing to make themselves look pretty.
I am not an expert in middle eastern dress but I am suspicious men wear white to reflect the heat of the sun. And women were supposed to be hidden from view.4
