Underwear News

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about used underwear, but since I’m going to be in Berlin next weekend, I thought it might be time to talk about underwear again.

Whilst in Berlin, I am staying at the same place I stayed last time: a small apartment near Nollendorfplatz, a block away from The Garage, that fabulous second hand clothes by the kilo shop in Berlin. Naturally I am going to stop by the store for an hour of fun shopping hoping to pick up some new shirts and maybe a pair of blue jeans.

As a part of my campaign to update my wardrobe, I need to buy more underwear.

Backstory for those who care: For a long time, every time I got near a Structure clothing store, I would buy one or two pair of underwear; something MT started to joke about. Then two things happened: First Structure got rebranded Express for Men, and their clothing started to suck. Secondly, I moved to Europe and stopped my habit of regularly buying new underwear. Consequently my boxers that have started dying have not been rapidly replaced.

I’m hoping to buy used underwear at The Garage.

Of course last time I shopped at The Garage, I announced that they did not have used underwear. I am hoping my pronouncement was in error. I am hoping that back in some dark corner they have a selection of used underwear that I can purchase.

Certainly it would be less expensive than new underwear.

Last time I picked up new underwear, I bought pair from American Apparel and AussieBum. American Apparel appeals to me because it is made in the United States by employees earning living wages wholly within a large city, even if said city is Los Angeles. AussieBum appealed to me because, well, I don’t know (although I do now subscribe to their video podcast). Yellow underwear seemed like a cool idea.

All of it was enormously expensive.

As I am spending a couple of days in Berlin, if I do not find used underwear at The Garage, I will have time to go hunting for if there is anything I ought to be able to buy in Berlin, I should be able to buy reasonably priced used underwear.

  • Hell no. That is where I draw the line. You know how I feel about this and you know how much it grosses me out. I will buy you new underware and lots of them…thongs, banana sacks, boxers, boxer briefs, briefs, the candy kind. I will gladly buy you a set of new panties if you promise me that you won’t buy/wear used.

    How’s that for a story for your friends, “a chick bought me panties!”.

    *shudders* used panties adam?? absolutely not!

    **hides in world where used panties aren’t real**

  • Just eeeewww. Buying used jeans and tees are no big deal but used underwear, no way!

  • MT

    Bleach. Lots and Lots of Bleach.

  • You know I’m now sitting here with fingers in my ears and chanting, “La, la, la, la, la” over and over again.

    I’ve swapt underwear and socks with guys I’ve hooked up with, but buying a stranger’s underwear…that just seems wrong (Unless the underwear comes with a picture of him, and he’s totally hot!)

  • LOL Mike…you let me wear your socks and I’m a girl and we haven’t hooked up…but then again I’ll never wear your socks again after bowling that one night LOL
