Buying underwear is becoming a pain in the butt, especially when you’re after something in particular.
Factor in a colour preference and cost, and one could almost say you’re stuffed.
Not all that long ago, I could purchase a five pack for less than a fiver. Nice, thick, warm material, black, navy or dark grey, perfect for the man in my life.
It would appear that the humble Y-front is no longer widely available, and if you are fortunate to find some, the material is so thin you can shoot peas through it and you have the colour choice of white, white or white. (I have NEVER liked white underwear for men.)
Gone are the days when you are almost falling over the guys Ys in the supermarket. Now you have the choice of briefs, trunks or boxers, and sadly Hubby does not feel comfy in any of them.
Why, if you’ll excuse the pun, have the men’s undies manufacturers either reduced or ceased to produce a garment that has been tried and tested for umpteen years.
Fashion to me isn’t a bona-fide argument, as men wear their pants under their trousers (unless they are some kind of super hero) so who is going to see them, apart from their other half or partner?
There is no substitute either. You can either buy Y or ……..not.
Briefs are NOT the same.
And don’t get me started on the cost of the damn things when you eventually find them……. £10 for 3 and they make a good sieve.
