There’s an inherent problem with buying new underwear you might not be aware of, and it’s more complicated than you think. (We’re talking about men’s underwear here, not ladies.)
Let’s say you have twelve pair of underwear in your underwear drawer. A pair for every day of the week, and a spare pair, or two.. for unexpected events. Some of them, not all; are starting to loose elasticity.
Half-way through the work-day, you find yourself with “droopy drawers”. Your underwear has slipped down, and is only covering half of your butt….the important half…but never-the-less….walking becomes uncomfortable. You find yourself “duck” walking, like one of those hip-hop jive guys, you see down on the street…just to keep your drawers from sliding down around your knees.
It’s time for new underwear.
After reviewing your size, you snug ’em back up, zip-up your fly, buckle your belt, and head out to the closest Walmart to buy…you guessed it…six new pair. You could buy more than just six pair, but just in case you get the wrong brand, or there’s a problem with the size…it’s better to stick with just a few…until you know for sure. Proper fitting underwear is important.
Here’s where the the other problem comes in.
After washing the new underwear, to take out the “itch factor”, you fold them up nicely, just like the others and store them neatly away in your underwear drawer. The next morning, it’s decision time. Time to choose a pair of underwear for the day. Which pair do you think you’ll go with….the old, stained, “loose as a goose” pair, or a pair of the bright, clean, snappy-elastic drawers. You’ll choose the new ones, of course. As long as old and new underwear are lying there next to each other…you invariably will always, ..pick the newer pair.
To make a long story brief…..NEVER, NEVER BUY NEW UNDERWEAR WITHOUT THROWING THE OLD UNDERWEAR AWAY first.
Old, tired, and stained underwear, will never mingle comfortably, with bright, new briefs.
