Last night I bought underwear. I HATE buying underwear.   This is an item that you can't try on in the store, and can't return it due to the hygienic concerns. So once I find a brand/style that I like, I am religiously loyal.

Unfortunately, after spending $75 for 4 pairs last night, I got home to find that they'd changed the design. These are unwearable, and wouldn't fit a 10-year-old boy.

I've emailed the company to try to rectify this, so let's see what happens. Ideally they'll give me a refund. If they brush me off, there'll just be one more business on my boycott list (along with Bell Canada and Joe Bidali's Restaurants).


  1. $75 for four pair? Obviously we aren't talking Hanes.

  2. Nope, not Hanes. But i'm willing to pay for underwear that's comfortable and lasts for a few years. It has to fit properly at the waist, the thigh-holes, the front, and the back. And it's a rare balance that gets all 4 right for me.

    Unfortunately i may be back to the drawing board, and my search will start at the lower-priced range...

  3. And an ill-fitting pair can easily ruin your day...
