What is with the garments of the LDS?

Adult members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) are encouraged to participate in a sacred ceremony in the temple called the 'Endowment'. During the endowment, special covenants and promises are made with God, and a sacred undergarment (usually called 'garments' or 'temple garments') is given to the participant. The garment is meant to be worn from then on under the clothing at all times (or whenever you would wear regular underwear) as a symbol and reminder of the commitments made during the ceremony.
The clergy of many faiths wear special clothing to symbolize their leadership and authority. Since Mormons have a lay clergy and share preaching responsibilities, the garment also serves as a sort of 'priests robe' - a symbol of their worthiness and authority to preach and teach within the congregation.
The garment is white and covers the thighs, body, and shoulders. Mormons believe that the garment and the ceremony in which it is recieved is based on several verses in the Old Testament, including Exodus 28:42, Leviticus 16:4, and Exodus 39:28.
