The langot, or langota, is a loincloth predominantly worn in India. It's used by kushti wrestlers in the Indian countryside who wrestle in specially-dug clay pits, and also by yogis and yoginis for it's superior support of the bodily core.
For those who like the look of the front of a rokushaku fundoshi, but prefer broader butt coverage; or for those who like the simplicity of the etchū fundoshi but like a more tucked-in look, the langot provides a nice balance of look, feel, support, and simplicity. It's tied around the waist much like an etchū fundoshi, then the apron (which is longer) is pulled from back to front, under the ties. Finally, the excess apron is pulled back between the legs and tucked into the langot at the small of your back, as pictured below. The effect looks like short trunks from the back and much like rokushaku fundoshi from the front. Lots more pictures after the jump!
the above is borrowed from http://designldg.wordpress.com/, a blog by photographer Laurent Goldstein which is replete with many more images of pehlwans (kushti wrestlers) wearing lagota and other images of rural Indian life. This is a copywritten image, however we include it here as an example of his photography in a small format and as a way to lead you to his personal website where you can appreciate more of his photographic works.
The sequence below shows a young man changing out of one langot into a turquoise blue one, and gives a pretty good idea of how the garment works:
And here is a good picture of a langot by itself, basically a wide triangle of fabric sewn into a long, narrow apron, with tapes to tie around the waist. Very similar to etchū fundoshi in its architecture, but from a different culture. Once again. perceived as completely modest by a society that does not have the body issues and nudity taboos that plague ours.
