National Underwear Day

Today is National Underwear Day!  

According to its website, it was created by an underwear manufacturer in 2003 to "shine light on 'unmentionables'".  Really?  Underwear needed to have a light shown on it?  It seems more like a gigantic advertising scheme to me, but I'm not complaining.  I love seeing people (read: men) in underwear so I'm calling attention to this 'holiday'.

Past celebrations have included underwear modeling events, giveaways, celebrity appearances, and the setting a new Guinness Book of World Records.  Click here for videos.

While on the topic of underwear, I'm just gonna go ahead and put this out there:  I don't 'get' the idea of buying expensive designer underwear.  No one sees my underwear but me and Spouse, and neither of us are impressed with brand names on our waistbands.  Some will claim that designer underwear is better quality and premium fabrics, but I've had some good old fashioned Fruit of the Looms and Hanes tighty-whities for years, so I'm not sure I believe that argument.  

Designers like Andrew Christian, Papi, and NastyPig have done a lot to eroticize and sell underwear, and I've definitely watched more than a few of their promotional videos.  But sexy or not, I'm not spending $25 or $30 on a single pair of underwear when I can buy a 5-pack for half that, or less.  I'd rather spend my money on something other than underwear.

What you do think??

I go for comfort and quality. I like UnderArmour. It is expensive, the quality is excellent and the comfort is wonderful.

I do not understand the recent desire for wearing expensive underwear. If you play your cards right, no one sees the stuff, for us married folks. And if one is still out there looking for love, who wants a fashion show when sex is on the menu?
