  Bikini Science--Loincloth
It has been said that the loincloth is the merger of the waistband and the fig leaf.
The loincloth should not be confused with the g-string, which similarly covers the genitals but which also has a string through the posterior rugae, giving it three edges as opposed to the two edges of the loincloth.
The loincloth merges the waistband and the fig leaf and is one of the most widely worn costumes on the planet.

  Interactive Dig Hierakonpolis - Nubian Cemetery Week 1: A Loincloth
Although we found the coarser "loincloth" and pieces of the fine leather in close proximity, we can see no evidence that they were part of the same garment.
Instead it may be possible that "loincloths" were one of those all-purpose articles of clothing, kind of like bandanas, so that when not need to gird the loins they could keep the hair in place.
Loincloths are considered articles of the male wardrobe while tattoos are almost exclusively found on women.

  Loincloth.... The Reviews.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
I kid you not, ladies and gentlemen: Loincloth is a balls out,extensively crafted piece of defiant metal that expands the parameters of the genre by exploring its infinite potential as a means of sonic expression.Riffs fly by at a blinding rate held impossibly together by the ambidextrous percussive assault of drummer Steve Shelton.
As one of the fastest-selling Richmond metal releases in years, Loincloth’s new “4-Song Demo” is a metallic tour de force that combines the fury and urgency of death metal with the complexity of math-rock and emo.
Loincloth appears to be a little hobby at this point, but if these guys wrote six more songs and recorded and released it to the world, they could very well be the best band in the universe, and all without even playing a show (they haven't yet, by the way).

A loincloth is a one-piece male garment, sometimes kept in place by a belt, which covers the genitals and, at least partially, the buttocks.
The loincloth is in essence a piece of material, bark-bast, leather or cloth, passed between the legs covering the genitals.
In most of (sub-)tropical continental Asia, types of loincloth such as the Indian lungi, often unisex or with a close female counterpart, remain in use as traditional dress, especially among the rural peasant communities, while city dwellers tend to adopt western style costumes.

 The Fur Loincloth And Boots - The REH Forum
I have become acutely aware that artists have begun to portray Conan in a fur loincloth and boots.
Conan himself in Hour of the Dragon said that he wore a pantherskin loincloth in his youth, although the "fur undies" are not really a loincloth.
By putting Conan in fur loincloth and boots over and over artists are creating a stereotype of a barbarian of which Conan is not.

In Malaya, Java, Bali, and elsewhere, the loincloth was replaced by the skirtlike kain because of Hindu influence,[24] while the sarong (a sewn tube of cloth) is an Islamic import.
This means "loincloth the penis," to take the front of the sarong between the legs and tuck it up back to make a loincloth to wear for hard work, so that the penis doesn't waggle around.

 The white lady in the loincloth - JAMAICAOBSERVER.COM
How she got from one title to the other is a mystery (and probably quite funny), and Ms Anderson must forgive me if now a motley crew of retrenched psychologists comes banging on her door for the chance to explain it to her.
Conversely, if Ms Anderson had shifted her epithet and come up with 'The lady in the white loincloth', I might have been able to expound at length on Ashanti, a forgettable film but one featuring a stunning fl girl being led to her sinuous fate across the illimitable Saharan sands.
But in our heroine's dream it is quite clearly not merely a dress either but her sense of her chastity, perhaps of her soul; and the sacrifice upon which her dreamself is embarked as victim is as old, and as self-sought, as impatient Eve's brusque offering of the apple.

The loincloth is in essence a piece of material, bark-bast, leather, or cloth, passed between the legs to cover the genitals, and despite this simplicity of function the loincloth takes many forms.
One end of the loincloth was held up, the remainder passed between the thighs, wound about the waist, and secured in back by tucking.
Despite that loincloth-wearing peoples consider the loincloth an expression of modesty, when Europeans conquered other peoples among whom the loincloth was traditional, the Europeans banned this garment as uncivilised and offensive to the Christian morality they usually preached.

This doesn’t mean the size of the statue’s feet but the absence of a discreet loincloth over what the Monty Python team labelled “naughty bits”.
Women and children passing by the downtown New York art gallery would be compelled to see the chocolate Jesus’ circumcised genitals during Holy Week, when, of course, their thoughts should be on higher things.
So, it’s not his stark nakedness, but the prudes who insist on the loincloth who are the affront to Jesus’ humanity and the ignominy of his suffering.
