Hi people! I'd like to introduce my very first creation, the fundoshi. I've done all the texturing on the GIMP (I'm weaned off Photoshop!) and alphaing on Paint.NET.

A fundoshi is a 5 foot cloth intricately wrapped around the waist area in a variety of twists and turns and loop-de-loops to form what looks like a man-thong. It lost steam when the Japanese were introduced to boxers and briefs, but recently it gained popularity when it was featured in a random quiz show in Japan. So they came up with patterned designer fundoshi. However, the most commonly used colors are red and white.

Japanese businessmen believe that fundoshi is "power underwear", underwear that is said to increase performance at work. Kids wear it when learning to swim so their parents can simply grab the kid by the fundoshi when they get in trouble. Fundoshi are most commonly worn during matsuri (festivals) while carrying portable shrines in what they call a "cleansing ritual". Then they go mud wrestling. The sight isn't the most pleasant in the world, but that's what they do.

It comes in three colors, Classic White, Historic Red and Striking Black.

This is a very unique upload! I mean that in the best way, of course. I like how you managed to make this look traditional but modern at the same time.

Your description really made the difference between me downloading this and passing it by. I try to make my Sims world very ethnically diverse and I have a traditional Japanese family that this will be perfect for. I can't wait to see what you create next!

The fundoshi, as seen on G4's Ninja Warrior! Thanks for creating this, my Takemizu sims will love it, provided it doesn't ride up.

Thank you!! It is so hard to find good sexy (but not gay) undies for men in this game. I'd love to see some of these in native natural leather looking colors if anyone feels up to the challenge. Thanks again so much. It's time to take the boys out shopping!

Well done. I think they are sexy, but that wasn't you're purpose (alledgedly)

They are fantastic, and I'm considering them as a cultural, profound download.

Intelligent underwear! Very classic, thanks,>

Keep up the lovely work!
