If you were a manly skirt in an ancient-ish type culture, you would be called...?

Like, all right, in the Emperor's New Groove, what the heck are the guys wearing? What are those skirty things called? (You know, like the one Kronk wears through most of the movie?)

Or, you know, if you could give the names of bottom type clothing that is not breeches, breechcloths, loincloths (sorry, that one make me shudder), or leggings, I'd be much appreciative.

Well, the Greek thing (image here) is called a chiton. Other drapey things were called kolobas, dalmatica, or the ever-popular toga.

The Egyptian skirt thing, whether short or long, is a schenti.

Kilts are always fun if you're Scots. The rest of the Celts wore pants.

Dunno about South American stuff; I'm an Old World type.

*tackle glomps* You rock. I think what I'm thinking of is closest to the schenti, and I'll go with that. ^_^

Also, I adore your icon. XDDDD

Thank you!

The icon is gankable, credit to jiatra. I love it, too.
