Male apparel undergarment disaster (Read 1584 times)


I've got a fever...

    Ok guys, don't make the same mistake I made. A few months ago I was looking to get some more "runderwear." I don't go running without every piece of apparel being technical fabric of some sort, and my underwear is no exception. Yes So I went to Road Runner Sports and discovered that the highest rated item in this category is the DRYROAD Jock, which conveniently comes in a 3-pack. I thought, "hey that's not a bad idea -- Big Jim and The Twins are secure, and there's lots of freedom everywhere else." I ordered a pack. 26 reviews and average rating of 4.5/5 can't be wrong, right? Ok WRONG. True, they seemed comfortable at first, but I noticed that they kept riding up. So much so that it looked kinda like a friggin' whale's tale. Blush That might look hot on the ladies, but I'm a dude -- having quasi-thong-like undergarments sticking out above my shorts just ain't cool. Plus, I found that if my wife and I aren't paying attention when folding the clothes, these things end up in her underwear drawer. I'm not a fan of having my underwear being mistaken for my wifey's. Roll eyes So fellas [yeah] fellas [yeah] has your girlfriend got the butt?... sorry, got on a random Mix-A-Lot tangent there. Lemme try again. So fellas, ignore that 4.5-star rating and go with 3-star rated, but much more rational DRYROAD brief.

    On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

      My running shorts all have liners. That suffices. No extra garments needed. And NO problems.

        The only time I wear underwear is with the few pairs of shorts that don't have a liner. Seriously, you don't need 'em.

              Ok WRONG. True, they seemed comfortable at first, but I noticed that they kept riding up. So much so that it looked kinda like a friggin' whale's tail.

                to quote Stripes "Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual." go w/ the running shorts w/ the liner

                      Even in the summer? Wow. I've never had a short liner fail under load and I've logged some serious miles. Hell the greeks ran naked...

                        I'm with your hubby on that one. Naked Greeks or not, I'm not trusting my Jones Gang to a little old liner. Especially since I'm the father of two young children. Why, you ask? Well, the untold truth about being a daddy is that you accidentally get kicked/hit in The Junk. A lot. My two year old could be sitting on my lap; then he'll suddenly bolt to grab who knows what and he'll plant his little foot right on The Goods. Those cute little bastards are fast, and they don't care where they step.

                        Do your double question marks indicate disbelief, or have you not heard that expression before? I'm not posting a picture to explain -- I'll leave that to Scout. Tongue

                              I've got 4, dude. So what your saying is it's not about the runnig so much as getting kicked i the nuts? In that case you better wear a cup because your little run briefs aren't gonna help you any more than a shorts liner. Tongue
