My younger brother is working on a comic book concept with a viking theme, and has asked me to help out with some research. Specifically, he needs reference material for how Arabs (or Muslim people in general) dressed in the viking age.

I was just wondering if anyone here could provide or point me at some decent references, preferably with pictures.

There's a good Osprey book called "Armies of the Caliphates 8621098" which has a large number of images of common Arabic dress of the period. I just checked, and Kult of Athena has it for twelve bucks.

Thanks for the suggestion. Can't seem to find that title for sale around these parts, so I will have to ask my brother if he's okay with ordering from abroad.

I did find Armies of Islam 7th-11th Centuries closer to home. Might that be comparable?
