I'm not sure you're conceptualizing a loincloth accurately. When most people talk about loincloths, what they actually mean is a breechclout. It's not a flap of cloth in the front and a flap of cloth in the back, held together with a string, with no coverage in-between. Typically, a breechclout is a single narrow piece of cloth or leather as much as 5 feet long. You put it between your legs so that the genitals and most of the ass (at least the ass crack) are covered. Then you tie it in place with a string, thong, or belt, so that the excess cloth drapes in the front and back.
There are other types of loincloths around the world, but most cover the genitals and the area between the legs (unlike a kilt or sarong). Loincloths originated long before there was such a thing as underwear, so there is no need to wear underwear with them. If they are properly sized and worn, there is little risk of indecent exposure.
