: : : : : In the very beginning of Raiders, in the temple, you can see that Indy is wearing white socks. But, then later on in Raiders, when Indy is hanging onto the plane and the Hovitos are shooting arrows and darts at him, the wind blows up Indy's pant leg and we can clearly see that he is wearing black socks.

: You can also see that the socks are black when he is caught by Belloq sitting outside the Temple in Raiders. Even I draw the line at socks. I mean who really cares? Black Socks are black socks. No one really would notice. (Except us!)
I understand he was wearing a jock strap woven from hemp. The guy who made them for the trilogy (he made a total of 48 which were worn by Mr. Ford and his stunt doubles) lives in Santa Monica. If you send him your measurements, he can get one to you in about 6 weeks. They cost $295.
