ABC Wednesday #63: L

30 Sep

Lungi is a traditional garment worn around the waist by men in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia a few other Asian Countries. It’s like a sarong for men. You see men walk around in lungi everywhere.

Here are a few photos of men in lungi I captured in Bangladesh.

    I didn’t know they are called lungi, they are called sarong here but only for home wear for the Malay, no one wear them out nowadays. My own family have abandon them for the shorts/pants!

    I like the thought of someone bringing bananas to the beach, we consume rather a lot of them in the UK. Great shot. I love all the different materials of the lungi.
