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 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.
