    All a breechclout is is a strip of cloth put between your legs, the ends of which hang over a cord or belt at the waist.

    Nothing much to it. You can practice with extra large beach towels folded in halves or quarters. Any cloth will do.

    I used to do that as a small child...Mom didn't let me outta the house though

    A similar thing is worn in the SE Pacific region, it is called the Lap-lap.

    In my teens I wore a breechcloth, or loincloth, a lot while hiking/running through the woods and creeks. Loved it, but you have to be careful about the vegetation. I also made moccasins, or sandals from tire treads (pre-steel belted) and rope or inner tube strips. A few years back I lived on/managed a "non mainstream" retreat center for 5 years. I wore my loincloth frequently, and lots of people just loved it.

    Get your self some real light weight wool, if you dont like the feel of wool you can always line it with cotton.

    Only the name I bear is sure,
    And since from it I cannot hide,
    Lord, let me hold my name in pride."

    I've got a double-layered breechclout/breechcloth that is made from the really soft antique hospital blankets. I wear it with all of my other woolens, including the matching leggings. Sometimes no one really notices that my inner thighs are bare and I have a cloth hanging between my legs.. but when they do...

    As useful as it may have been in its day its an item that has lost its place to "normal" underwear.
