Clothing


  • The men of Israel paid little attention to the passing fads and fashions of surrounding nations




  • Their clothing styles remained unchanged from generation to generation




  • The basics for the Jewish man was simple – an inner garment, and outer garment, a girdle and sandals




  • Any variation of this outfit was in the quality of the fabrics, detailing in the cut of the cloth, or in the colors used




  • Quite practically, these clothes were the best for the hot climate in which the Jews lived

The Tunic or Inner Garment










  • It was left its natural color




  • The tunic was really just a sack with openings cut in the head and arms to pass through







  • So that the seller could prove that the tunic was unused




  • When a man was wearing just the inner garment or tunic, he was considered naked

The Outer Garment




  • The Outer garment worn by Bible men was kind of an outer coat worn over the lighter fabric of the inner garment




  • For warmth the outer garments were made of a thick woolen material or goat’s hair




  • At night fall the owner wrapped himself in this cloak to sleep




  • A rich man’s overcoat resembled a dressing gown with wide sleeves







  • The earliest cloaks were made of two pieces, with a seam that ran horizontally across the waistline



The Belt or the “Girdle”




  • The girdle was the belt worn by men of the Bible




  • The girdle was made of a wide band of colorful cloth




  • Elijah and John the Baptist wore girdles of leather







  • The expression “to gird up the loins” refers to a method of tucking the robe up between the legs and into the belt




  • This allowed the men to work much more freely
