When I first discovered this site I imagined that there would be a lot more love for the classic Tarzan/Jungle Boy loincloth, like I thought more people would be into that design of the front and the back flap with leopard print, fur, or just the plain brown cloth. Theyve always looked great and pretty comfortable but maybe they are they not as comfortable as they look or are they just not practical to wear?
Yes, it's a pity, there isn't a large community of loincloth wearers on the internet.
I looked for people in France who also wear loincloths to make a group but I couldn't find anyone. So I hike alone.
do you have sonething underneath it or is it just flaps? also i wouldent mind buying one if i could find some one who sells them
I don't have one in that style but figure that something underneath would make it more practical and having nothing would make it more comfortable and definitely hotter although both styles are nice
yes, I have underwear because you're never safe from a gust of wind or misplaced brambles. ;)
ive only worn native american ones so idk how those would feel
For me, the Tarzan style loincloth is my favorite. I think the loincloth worn by Herman Brix / Bruce Bennett in 1935's The New Adventures of Tarzan serial is one of the best. At one time I owned some leather loincloths that were purchased from Western Costume Company and used in films. They were cool but not really all that comfortable. When going on a hike I prefer wearing a simple crinkle fabric loincloth with ample coverage in front and rear.
Thanks for posting. Here is a photo of Herman Brix in loincloth.
How you comment, there is a lot of filmography, series, comics and much more where they show the art of loincloths. I didn't get to know or watch the Tarzan series other than just the Disney version, but thanks to everything related to The Jungle Book, it was where I discovered my love of dressing and wearing a loincloth as a tribute. Greetings and welcome to the club.
