The earliest citations all >seem to refer to the article of (male?) Native Americans' attire and those New York columnist Earl Wilson (1940s) did a piece on the G-string. I recall reading it in his book in the late forties. Sorry to have forgotten the title, but an aging memory has its problems. He wrote that the G-string on the bass was low, hence the name of the article worn by showgirls because it was worn low. He also commented about the article appearing in low places.
