How to Tie a Toga for Men


Whether you are preparing for a theme party or a Greek class presentation, a toga will add authenticity to the event. For men the method of tying a toga may seem confusing but takes very little time and when done properly holds up well for many hours. To further complement this Greek clothing, try adding gladiator sandals and a laurel wreath for your head. To better preserve modesty you may wear shorts and a shirt underneath your toga, lest it come undone.

Things You'll Need

  • Long sheet or fabric (long enough for your body)
  • Safety pins
  • Wrap the sheet horizontally around your waist once or twice. Depending on how sheer the fabric is you may wish to wrap it twice.

  • Pin the sheet at the waist, so that it will not come undone.

  • Take the remaining length of the sheet and toss it over one shoulder.

  • Bring the remaining fabric back to the waist and pin it in place s that the section that falls over the shoulder will not come undone.

  • Pin any remaining loose bits of sheet to the body so that the toga looks neat on the body.
