9 Genesis 3 The First Clothes The First Clothes V. 7 Naked(Nude) V. 11 Naked(Relatively)ApronTunic V. 21 Clothed & Modest

10 Tunic Original I.S.B.E. article on Dress says chiton resembled the Roman tunic, corresponding most nearly to our long shirt, reaching below the knee always, and, in case it was designed for dress occasions, reaching almost to the ground (I.S.B.E., II:877). Later in the article, it is noted that the chiton of the peasantry was shorter like modern kamis of Syrian fellah which is to the knee.

11 Tunic Hebrew: KUTTONET--"a tunic...; generally with sleeves, coming down to the knees, rarely to the ankles" (Gesenius, 420; cf. Harris, 1:459; Brown, Driver, Briggs, 509).

12 Tunic Wright says, The tunic (inappropriately translated coat) was a shirt which was worn next to the skin. It was made of leather, hair-cloth, wool, linen, or in modern times, usually of cotton. The simplest form of it was without sleeves and reached to the knees or sometimes to the ankles. The well- to-do wore it with sleeves and extending to the ankles. Women as well as men wore it [see Cant. 5:3, A.R.V.], although there was no doubt a difference in style and pattern in what was worn by the two (Fred H. Wight, Manners and Customs of Bible Lands, 91).
