Recession-hit Brit men ditch boxers for Y-frontsApril 26th, 2009 - 11:00 am ICT by ANI
London, Apr 26 (ANI): The ongoing recession has certainly changed Brit men’s underwear choices, for the sales of Y-fronts have increased by 35 per cent.
According to retailer Debenhams, sales of Y-fronts are outperforming than that of trendy boxers and trunks.
Last month, Y-fronts outsold boxer shorts for the first time since the early 1990s - the last time Britain was in recession.
Moreover, they prefer to buy standard white styles rather than the high fashion versions of previous years.
“These are the sort of pants our fathers wore,” the Scotsman quoted store’s spokesman Ed Watson as saying.
“They provide a much greater sense of security than boxers, and in these troubled times, perhaps that’s what men need to feel,” he added. (ANI)
