In RL Fox's book, he is talking about riding horses and says this:

"Within hours, I had decided that six years on horseback, with no saddle, would have made Hephaestion's backside so hard and leathery that is was not in the least surprising if Alexander opted for a soft unmilitary Persian eunuch for a change: Bagoas took on a new appeal."



!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG.
I still haven´t got my book. Hopefully soon...

Colin's underwear in the movie has been debated for quite a while already. Here are links to more 'pants' pictures for your enjoyment:
from Heat magazine January 2004

Cor! Nice pictures Susa! Colin's skirt is just so short! No wonder all the army loved him Laughing If only he had had more suitable pants underneath- or none at all! Now people should realise why I like men in kilts.

I´m behaving... Cool

I´ve searched for the answer, and I´m convinced they did not wear any underwear, because it was not so awful if certain body parts were showing. Underwear came known later because of hygienic and climatic reasons.

However, if they had a piece of fabric wrapped around their lower body, scientists don´t call it underwear!
