    A large part of the book is devoted to Mahatma Gandhi whose ability to deploy the politics of dress remains unsurpassed. His transition from smart dhoti and kurta-wearing lad, to full western dress as a law student in London, and then to the bare body and khadi loincloth - or, more accurately, short dhoti - in which he is most often iconised.
