In Brief

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.
y frontsIt 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.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
