How to wear an antariya?


Hi, I'm working in a comic that features numerous ancient cultures, including a fictional tribe based on ancient south asian cultures. Looking for references, I found out that people of that time and place wore antariya. However, I still haven't found good perspectives of that garment. Does some knows how to wear antariya? Thanks.

Though wrestlers may wear Western underwear, beneath that the 'langot' will always be there.
The prise for this bout was a hundred thousand Indian Rupees (USD 1,563).

Thanks for your examples Aupmanyav. But I don't quite understand. For what I've seen, the langot seems different from the antariya. Or is it that antariya are worn the same way that langot?

Thanks Happy Milk for your query. Helped me to search some more. I find that 'langot' is 'kaupeenam' of the old. So 'antariya' will the any garment covering the lower portion of the body - dhoti, lungi; and as Wikipedia article on 'Antriya' (wrong spelling) says sometimes kept in place by a belt (kayabandha).

Dhoti (men's) - North India
Lungi - South India
