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
Its amazing how you can find such beauty in something so simple.
So true, it's just a knotted/twisted/folded length of cloth -- held on by friction, really...
Great fotos! How does th tying go with the fundoshi that are ver wide around the waist? Where do you find all of the images?
Do you mean, if you leave the "belt" portion very flat so that it's wider around your waist? Or, wait, I see what you mean -- so that there's a belly wrap, right? That requires a much longer strip of fabric -- try this video for an idea of how: http://fundoshi4all.blogspot.com/2011/02/one-of-best.htmlAnd I gather the images far and wide -- some from books but mostly from voracious image searching!
