My first loincloths were made out of old white linen bed sheets. I would cut two panels and pin them around my waist with two large safety pins. I didn't realize at the time that loincloths were one piece or made with a sewn in middle. I used to wear them in a small area of woods boarding a river. I would also sneak out of the house late at night and run around our large yard and rural street in my loincloths. Sometimes the safety pins would come apart and OUCH!
Once I tried wearing nothing but a loincloth in the winter with snow on the ground due to it being pictured in a Korak comic. Big mistake! I was really lucky I did not get frostbite. Finally got home and took a warm bath. Never did that again.
National Geographic was also a favorite and I made a red loincloth out of some material I found to look like a loincloth I had seen in the magazine. Later saw Tarzan and the Valley of Gold and that clinched it for me.
Not sure about reincarnation, but if there is something to it I would have to say that I wore a loincloth in a past life as it just feels so natural to me.
