There is no doubt that men hate buying their own underwear. Single men tend to whiz into big departmental stores, grabbing the 3-pack underwear that is dyed in the dullest colours. Just hoping that the lady at the checkout counter is not young and pretty. Let’s face the fact men’s underwear is kinda boring.
When they have got a girlfriend or wife, the task is almost immediately delegated quickly to her. After all, she is the only one who sees.
But what happens underneath those clothes is very important to the women, which is why we have put together some tips for women on how to choose the best men’s underwear.
The tips involve three simple steps which involve :
- Working out what kind of guy you have
- Choosing the type of underwear
- Getting sufficient quantities of the new style into the man’s drawer before explaining yourself.
First Step – What kind of man you are dealing with:
The first step involves working out what kind of man you have. Try using the following guide:
This guy is so concerned with his looks that he will take care of his own underwear and you can be sure that you can trust that it will look good on him.
It is best to make sure that he does not end up out-dressing you in the underwear department. The best thing for this guy is to hand him a men’s g-string so he can admire his own buttocks in a mirror.
He owns at least some form of facial cream and does enjoy shopping. It would be normal to see this guy wearing something from Zara or American Apparel.
Trunks are the thing for this kind of man. He will be well aware that Calvin Klein has great looking trunks.
Spends most of his time with babies climbing all over him. Therefore something comfortable and easy is important like briefs.
By the time he crawls into bed after putting the baby to sleep you won’t notice what he has on anyway.
This guy is busy down the local bar watching football, humming to songs as he showers in the football changing room.
The best advice is to get him something that will not embarrass his mates at the club. Good old fashioned boxers are perfect for him and you can even choose to vary the material by buying something silkier.
Second step – Ordering Men’s underwear
A man will normally wear one pair of underwear for as long as possible without changing. It is pretty disgusting, therefore women should make sure he changes it and has at least 14 days worth of underwear supply.
This way you can make sure he will get around to his washing every two weeks. However, if you want to make sure he washes his underwear more often, the solution is obvious, buy less underwear. A friend once bought a single three-pack only.
Step three – Making the switch
Now, tips on how to get rid of the old designs. The fastest way to is to use the direct approach. Dump the underwear in the trash on a garbage day. You really don’t want him rummaging in the trash can looking for them while cursing at you.
Make sure his new underwear is placed exactly where the old ones would have been. If the colours match, the change in underwear type might even go unnoticed for a few days if you’re lucky.
Step four – Explaining yourself
When your man asks where his favourite underwear disappeared to, you can choose your how you want to explain the truth. It is easy to say the washing machine chewed it up or go straight for the cliché, “I prefer you without them” and they head for the hot rumble that follows, helping him get over the fact his favourite y-fronts have gone.
