The styles of clothing within the city of Semnan are categorized within the ''Western (Western world)'', ''Rural Semnani'', and ''Modern Iranian'' styles. * '''Western Imitation:''' Regardless of religious beliefs, a large number of Semnanis prefer to wear Western clothing. For men, this style of clothing usually refers to a t-shirt and a pair of jeans, or an informal dress shirt tucked into a pair of jeans or slacks. For women, this style of clothing usually refers to a pair of jeans, a blouse, and a tight, thin overcoat in order to meet Islamic standards of dress. * '''Rural Semnani:''' The rural Semnani style of clothing is the traditional clothing of the people of Semnan, however, this style of clothing is rarely seen within the city, and is mainly worn during ceremonies held by the rural people living in the villages around Semnan. For men, rural Semnani clothing refers to a vest like garment worn over an informal long-sleeved dress shirt along with a pair of slacks. Also, the men tend to wear a wool cap or prayer cap. For women, this style of clothing usually refers to a vest worn over a long, loose shirt, along with a long and colorful skirt. The vests worn by the women tend to be decorated with numerous coins dating back to the Pahlavi dynasty and the Qajar dynasty. When the rural-styled women leave their homes, they would wear a colorful or flowery designed chador, or a long cloak that covers the body entirely except for the hands and face. * '''Modern Iranian:''' The modern Iranian style of clothing reflects a mixture of Iranian and Western styles of clothing that are worn by the people of Tehran and other major Iranian cities.

In 1340 Mas'ud moved against the Ja'un-i Qurban under Arghun Shah; the latter was forced to abandon Nishapur and retreat to Tus (Tus, Iran). The Sarbadars continued to mint coins in Togha Temur's name, in the hope that he would ignore this move as he was campaigning in the west again at this time. The khan, however, moved against them; his forces were destroyed, and while fleeing to Mazandaran several important figures such as 'Ala' al-Din (formerly in charge of Sabzavar), 'Adb-Allah, and Togha's own brother 'Ali Ke'un were killed. The Sarbadars gained control of Jajarm, Damghan and Simnan (Semnan, Iran), along with Togha's capital of Gurgan. Mas'ud and Hasan Juri, however, soon came into disagreement over several issues. Mas'ud, following the defeat of Togha Temur, gained a new suzerain in the form of Hasan Kucek of the Chobanids, as well as the latter's puppet khan Sulaiman. Mas'ud considered the move necessary; with the conquest of Simnan, the Chobanids were now neighbors. Since the Chobanids were Sunnis, however, this doubtless did not go over well with Mas'ud's co-ruler.
