This isn't a homework question, but something for a project that an acquaintance and I are working on. Basically, we have a piece of clothing that we believe is generally associated with Ancient Egypt, and are attempting to find the name of it. An

Some images follow, please forgive their unusual sources... but they were the best we could find.




The specific piece we are interested in is the loincloth like piece of material that is worn around the crotch. Specifically (more specifically), the underwear with two pieces of material attached to it. Does anyone know what this piece of clothing is called? Apologies again for the image source, and thanks in advance.[/img]

Are you looking for the ancient Egyptian word for it, or what historians call it? Because historians generally refer to it as...a loincloth. The Egyptians themselves had several words but didn't seem to differentiate much in terminology between the loincloth and kilt. A garment wrapped about the waist was simply how they looked at it.
