Men's Underwear Sales Reveal Economic Shrinkage
This is the lead story on The Huffington Post right now (I am not making this up!). It seems that there's a correlation between sales of men's underwear and the state of the economy, with any dip in the sales of men's underwear signalling a downward turn in the economy. This is apparently an Alan Greenspan metric, and if you believe it, then I guess it's bad news that the leading global research company, Mintel, projects a 2.3 percent drop in sales of all men's underwear products in 2009...

HaHaHa. I liked your Habitat post so much on "Women" that I decided to subcribe to your personal blog, but hadn't actually read any of it until now.

Hmm. I do believe this picture captures his candid soul :-).

My last bf never wore underwear; the current one,I don't know yet ;-0.

Maybe jobless men don't buy new underwear? Ew...

Dang it, did Alexis send you that picture of me? I told her that was private! ha ha ha

I will support the economy and go buy some briefs that support me! ;)

Is it horrible that the first thing I thought was that during bad economic times, while the sales of men's underwear goes down, traditionally the sale of lipstick goes up? I think I'd best leave that little tangent alone.

Let's not be wasting precious cash on an article of clothing nobody is going to see.

Who says nobody's going to see your underwear! going "commando" is one thing. Wearing a sexy pair of underwear goes a lot longer!!!
