Men's underwear as economic indicators ?

Ok, fellows is this true?
How do your skivvies, gitch or gotch measure up? Or in the case of the Scotts and their kilts, never mind!
If you want to know where the economy is headed next, look in your underwear drawer.

If you're like most men, you've got more than a few skivvies in, well, less than perfect condition.

If you're put off buying replacements -- and your significant other hasn't done it for you -- then guess what? The recession probably ain't over yet.

In fact, right now men's underwear sales suggest that things have bottomed but not started to recover.

Men's underwears sales have "bottomed"

  2. Ayah! Silv beat me to the punchline!

    That's the beauty of Thai fisherman's pants you see - the triple fold at the front perfectly obscures your bits.

    What about socks?

    Oh, and Silv and Nobody - thanks for confirmation - you both seemed to me the non-undie type. Just please, for us women don't wear short shorts and let it all hang out.

    yeeks

  5. Now you listen up my Dearest shining Penny, when it comes to the economy of this great land we call Canada I do my part by NOT wearing undies. Just think of all of the water saved in just one year, the phosphates from the soap NOT polluting our waterways and such. Then of course by NOT wearing skivvies I am not supporting the Stanley Gitch company staffed by child labor that is housed in squalid rat infested with all manner of creepy slimy things crawling about sewing factories in countries like Taiwan, China, India and Oklahoma.

    And as far as me body parts and the support thereof I have adopted the hands on approach. That way not only do me neither regions get support but they also get the feeling that someone cares even if it is only me. So don't you go be telling me that I don't do me part with me parts Ok.

  6. Being visually minded can be a curse at times. It's not what it's cracked up to be.

  10. Boom Tish! Penny Buff and James!

    Believe it or not, I actually wore underpants the other day for the first time in years, and it was so uncomfortable! I can't believe I used to wear them and think nothing of it.
