Sir: You show a photograph of a member of the Amazonian Mascho-Piro tribe which "is thought to have had no previous contact with the outside world" (11 October). Could someone please explain why this man appears to be wearing a khaki T-shirt, bright red bandana, fashionably cut underpants and - do my eyes deceive me - a watch?
