My story "Jaxarte and the Bison Khan" features assorted Praxians and what they wear. It was first published in TotRM #6, but is available on my Glorantha Page, along with most of the other Jaxarte escapades: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~mrmob/jaxandthebisonkhan.htm

I've got a dying khan wrapped up in bison skins, a naked shaman, and a buckskinned gal who dresses her hair in rancid fat. Plus a Lunarised sable rider in ridiculous Kostaddian silk pajamas. And, to cap it off, young Jaxarte ends up spending his summer hols buck naked on the plaines and crazed as a loon (well, lune).
