New research:The clothing of ancient Egyptians

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

New research on the clothing of ancient Egyptians has revealed that arm warmers, socks, loincloths, and even underwear were commonly worn. While little work has been conducted on the clothing choices available at the time, Egyptologist Dr. Aleksandra Hallmann from the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Oriental Institute in Chicago decided that the time was right to thoroughly explore this unique area of ancient Egyptian history and set about examining fashion choices over thousands of years.

You probably can't find a single block in the city that doesn't have at least a FEW Poles.  I've known a couple of Polish ladies.  Strong, brave and beautiful!

Sounds like we've uncovered the ancient origin of the socks and sandals combo.

I wonder if it was also the origin of "does this make my butt look too big?"
