    Ho, Ho, Ho!!!

    Christmas comes early, my friend! Look what I just spied in the the JCPenney Fall/Winter 2006 Catalog...

    [​IMG]

    Available in sizes 32-44 even ($16.00/pkg. of 3) AND sizes 46-54 even ($21.00/pkg. of 3) for us bigger guys! Order them now and maybe they will keep this item permenantly in stock!

    Can it be...traditional men's fashion becoming mainstream once again?? Who'da thunk it?? ;)

    Too bad they don't come in a 28 inch waist...

    I live in Taiwan (a subtropical island in the Pacific Ocean) and I wear an undershirt with my dress shirts everyday. I used to wear Gap shirts but now I wear Hanes undershirts. They're really lightweight and thin but I find that they are still cut quite close to body. The only problem is they wear out quicker, so you may have to buy new ones more often. I get mine at Target.

    Waist sizes start at 32. The solution? Doughnuts, son....eat lots and lots of doughnuts! ;)

    I have the Penny's ones and let me tell you, the inseam is short if you wear them at the righ level.so they bunch up in the crotch.

    .

    They're sold out in my size (and unavailable in-store here) :(

    But if they're crotch creepers anyway, who cares.
     
  13. Well, you can always beat a wife with them.

    For confirmed boxer wearers, the tie back boxers from Brooks Brothers are great, pricey but great.

    2 valid uses:

    they help keep my shirt from pulling out of my pants...i would guess it has to do with static cling and/or friction :)

    if i'm wearing a polo shirt that has a logo, patch or embroidery on the breast, the tank top prevents the usually annoying scratchy logo to become less annoying.

    i used to wear a-shirts (wifebeaters) all the time, but i haven't bought them in a long time and have since switched to v-necks or crewneck undershirts.

    On the subject of underwear and trad items.. what about sock suspenders?? How many of you have ever worn them? or possibly wear them on a regular basis? I could not possibly conceive leaving the house without my socks properly supported by my sock suspender.. unless of course I am sporting plus fours!

    I haven't, but some here do. There's a discussion of them (along with shirt garters) in this thread: http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?t=4555
