get wrapped up in Japan's oldest menswear! Fundoshi (褌) is a simple length of fabric worn as a loincloth in Japan for over 1,200 years. 褌を締めてかかる
That's it! Gotta buy some fabric. The first and last photos also had me harking back two entries to the "obvious erections" discussion because I've got one now. Oh and THANKS, btw.
I'm on my way to the fabric store tomorrow! I wish we could swap around... I won't need three or four with the same dots. Hot hot photos! Tks!
I don't know what it is about this simple pattern which is so intriguing to me or which, well, makes me horny. It just does. That said, it is clear to me now that we engineers and the fabric designers live on different planets. I can't find this simple dark dots on white fabric. Okay, my search keys are things only an Army supply sergeant could appreciate but still! It must be out there. I'll keep trying! I gotta have some of this now. :)
Jackpot! 1/2-inch navy dots on white and on sale, I tell you! http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p/KKK597/Dark-Navy-Blue-White-Sheeting
When will we see the results?
Hey John, how did the spotted fabric turn out? Did you make some new fundoshi with it?
You know I don't think youll find this fabric in the fabric store, because its a traditional pattern of japan, different from a diagonally placed polka dot, if you look closely youll realize its actually aligned rows and columns with differetn spacing between rows and columns. During one of my trips to Japan I found this pattern to be the most basic common pattern used for tenugui, which is a long piece of cloth which edges are finished lentghwise only, and is used as a hat, a kitchen towel, a scrubbing towel for the shower etc..; The tenugui I own seem to me a bit small to make a tenugui out of but I would bet anything its that same fabric.
Got to get me some spotted material, for my next fundoshi!!!
