A Belated Celebration of Loincloth Day

Check out how otaku marked Fundoshi Day!

People frequently gripe that Valentine's Day is a fake holiday hijacked by the greeting card makers. Well, Fundoshi Day, celebrating and promoting the use of traditional fundoshi loincloth underwear is definitively the creation of the Japan Fundoshi Association. 



Taking place February 14th, because of a date pun, the day would have people wear a sort of traditional underwear that became endangered after the popularization of western style briefs and trunks. Proponents say that fundoshi are the better option for preserving blood circulation.
