I stand corrected, educated and apologetic. I have always just thought of loin cloths as those little pieces of cloth strategically balanced on sculptures and paintings. After some research I will be including some in my work. THANKS.
Many people think that. I did, too, but that was long ago. However, I find loincloths the perfect underwear or stand-alone clothing. Made of good-quality fabric (fine linen, for exampl–––cotton is good too, but the ecological footprint is higher), they can last for a long time. They are a one sze-fits-every-girth garment: if you get heavier, your flaps just become shorter :) .
Consequently , I wore my last briefs more than ten years ago.
I'm looking forward to your new work. Of course, there's is nothing to say against nude bodies, but an occasional loincloth might even turn a work safe for work: all those Tarzan film posters were and are, too. e
