    Loincloth type garments are not uncommon in ancient or “primitive” cultures, but they often used them as outerwear( or still do as the case may be).

      For tropical climates that is often true. It also depends on the availability of fibers for making cloth. I’m not sure where the idea for full clothing came from, but it certainly seemed to become the fashion for most of the world at some point, even in the hottest places on the planet. If I were to make a bet, I would say that loincloths were developed simply to keep a man’s junk in control while they went hunting or raiding. Otherwise we would have stuck with fig leaves, amirite? oh man, nothing beats the comfort of fig.

          I looked them up. They do look like the superior choice for outerwear!

    I totally get, and anthropologically approve of, the sartorial choice, and how your depicted it tastefully, but they’ll surely have OTHER hangups about modesty, fidelity, chastity, and such. Even when the Romans had fennel for birth control, it was pricey and they could not pretend as moderns do that it is all about that amorphously imprecise English word “love”. They lived in a very real world, and were not wealthy enough for make-believe … except insofar as paganism served social functions, obviously.

    I went into denial when people told me that David is no more.
    “Must be a bad joke:”, I thought. “David Bowie is like an immortal. He will outlive even me – being born 21 years after him.”
    Then I sat down before my computer and it was no joke. Another beautiful piece of humanity has vanished from our reality. I felt pretty sad.
    And I’m not even a fan.
