Mr Grump’s Brand New Boxers!

Poor old Mr Grump, he is not exactly a trendsetter, well neither am I for that matter! It is just as well really as Miss Hap has decided that she likes to wear only stuff that is made by the ‘right’ brand, which I touched on in this post.

The one ‘trend’ that I can’t stand is when young men wear their trousers around their hips and have half of their arse hanging out! Of course, they have nearly always got a waistband of a pair of Calvin Klein boxers poking out over the top. Presumably, this is the go-to boxer of choice for the young of today. Well, each to their own, but I don’t want to see them, and I have to almost restrain myself from telling them to ‘pull your bloody trousers up’ and have in fact, mentioned to my nephew that perhaps he might need a belt to keep them up!

Anyway, a long- standing joke between myself and Mr Grump is that I always moan about the price of boxer shorts, and he normally gets a three pair pack once a year (if I am feeling generous, after all, it is not even Christmas or birthdays when he gets them, it is extra).

About a week ago, we were doing a bit of grocery shopping in Lidl (a cut price German Supermarket), when I saw a pack of 3 boxers. I checked out the price and they were a couple of quid cheaper than we normally pay, so I (begrudgingly) bought him some.

I did laugh as a day or two later he was standing by our back door, and I happened to notice that his trousers had slipped down a little (this was more by accident than design). Not for him the fancy brand name on his underpants oh no, his were proudly displaying ‘Casual Basics’ on the waistband!

That says it all really!

  1. I thought that style was on its way out! That would be great…but then something even more outrageous will come in. It’s so funny how teenagers have a need to assert their independence and unique style, and then they all do the same thing. Of course, once that was me too.

  2. I must confess I buy expensive boxers because they are very comfortable. Like you I hate it when trouser are hanging down however when you spend £40 for a pair I sometimes think maybe I should let my trousers slip a bit so others apart from my wife can appreciate them. I haven’t given in to that temptation yet!

  3. The arse hanging out is one of my pet hates though I don’t like the style(?) where the crotch is down by the knees either, no-one bum needs that much room. Every time I think of saying something though I wonder what my parents thought of my flares and highly patterned shirts (back in fashion) in the 60’s and some of the platform shoes from the 70’s. What patience they must have had.
    I like ALDI and LIDL stuff sometimes, good value even if the band branding is wrong.
