Toga
The toga, a distinctive garment of Ancient Rome, was a roughly semicircular cloth, between 12 and 20 feet (365 to 609 centimeters) in length, draped over the shoulders and around the body. It was usually woven from white wool, and was worn over a tunic. In Roman historical tradition, it is said to have been the favoured dress of Romulus, Rome's founder; it was also thought to have been worn by both sexes, and by the citizen-military. As Roman women gradually adopted the stola, the toga was recognised as formal wear for Roman citizen men.[1] Women engaged in prostitution might have provided the main exception to this rule.[2] The type of toga worn reflected a citizen's rank in the civil hierarchy
