Lungi: a man-skirt retained from the ancient days when all men wore skirts

Originally uploaded by midwest2mideast
One of the many things we learned from our special lecture by Magnet teacher Deborah Morehead was that Asian mean still wear skirts.

In Asian countries, it's perfectly acceptable for a man to switch between a three piece Western suit and a salwar-kameez, a robe or a lungi.

Nowadays, fashion conscious Asian men are adopting long flowing robes, jackets and dhotis or baggy kameezs and salwars, with a shawl thrown over the shoulder.
