Dads admit their drawers are droopy

June 15, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Forget about buying dad a tie for Father's Day. What he really needs is underwear.

A recent survey for Jockey International Inc. found that more than a quarter of men say their shorts are at least 4 years old. Their underwear is anything but under-worn -- 77% admit that their undergarments aren't in good shape.

Nearly a third of the 500 men in the telephone survey by Kelton Research say their old boxers or briefs no longer have elasticity, while 15% say they have underwear that doesn't fit and 14% say they keep pairs that are covered in holes.

Underwear at least a decade old is in the dresser drawers of 11% of the men surveyed, while 2% say they have kept undergarments that are more than 20 years old.
