A question about clothing

Postby Tobe » Sun 03.18.2007 10:23 am

What is the name of the uniform worn by the drum group Kodo? I speak of the small white loin cloth uniform.
Ah, so desuka? Hai!

The LOINCLOTH is called a fundoshi.

Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Depends on the romanization system. I know, rômaji is evil.

Just remember that sumo wrestlers don't wear fundoshi.

They wear mawashi.

The only real difference between fundoshi and mawashi is the name. :@

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

y'know, somewhere i have a picture of "how to put on/wear a fundoshi... if there's real interest, i'll try digging around the gigabytes of pictures that i've saved over the years and find the instructions....

you'll have to find the "how to tie kinky knots" on your own. :)

And the thickness. And the length. And the fabric and/or knitting. And how it's worn.

(Not to mention that there are a number of different kinds of fundoshi...)
