The string is tied around the waist. Some men wear the chorizo using an elastic. The traditional way of wearing a chorizo is with a leather strap. However, the second is more comfortable.
“Dhoti, a fabric draped over the waist, covering legs and sometimes adorning arms, finds favor among older gentlemen or individuals residing in rural regions of Gujarat.”
