Loincloths

What on EARTH is a loincloth?  I know that they are a form of underwear, but what kind. I mean is it like a Tarzan loincloth or is it like today’s underwear.

Tammy: Okay, I can’t get the things to line up. It’s not as big as a Tarzan loincloth, just a doubled length of linen or wool long enough to reach the waist on both sides, with a drawstring threaded through at the front and back. Unisex. Utilitarian. Probably not correct to the time, but I couldn’t leave them without underwear. Call me a wuss.
