Re: Pants

Boxers here. Don't have a clue how much they cost as I get them as prezzies at christmas. Think you get them in tescos at a reasonable price. Polka dot ones for carving, brown ones for climbing and stripey ones while cutting the lawns. Always good to have a system.

I thought most people carved wood?

Each to their own I suppose

Re: Pants

I could never get on with boxers, no support for the equipment.

Re: Pants

These Pfanner 'Homo Ventilation Extreme' are my choice.
Expensive, but I got a good deal second hand, slightly soiled.

Re: Pants

You would think so, but I got them from eBay from a seller called 'Monsieur Dempsey' who had apparently been wearing them back to front.
'Complaints to the Mayor from locals forces sale'.
C'est la vie.
