I have yet to find a good use for the Hermes boxer shorts except to cite it in posts here (I've actually got a bit of mileage out of that). My girl friend asks for things from victoria secret (polyester and spandex) and could care less about Hermes boxer shorts. Maybe I can rationalize the boxer shorts because it shrouds a Strativarious, but my chest is strictly Walmart class. Sometimes I pretend I forget to take off the $340 price tag and let it dangle outside my pants for others to see, but you can do that only once in any group of friends. At conferences, guys would accuse me of claiming I was better than them just because I wore $340 Hermes boxers, which I pointed out was absolutely absurd, what kind of shallow person did they think I was, there were lots of reasons I was their better and this was just one of them. I used to go to bars and mention to girls that I only wear Hermes $340 boxer shorts, thinking just for the opportunity to see them they'd come home with me (strange, in every case I'd go to take a pee and they'd be gone when I returned, guess I'm not the only one with Hermes boxers). Eventually, I plan on posting a picture claiming that I'm Spoo and ofter to sell them in well worn, soiled condition on Ebay for $1000, sort of an upscale offering for an already thriving business in worn, unlaundered garments on the site.
Seriously, many of my Hermes items I purchased from a wealthy gentleman who just had a lot of money, and it didn''t matter at all to him how much things cost, If you buying $120K worth of pants, shorts, shirts, jackets, you might as well buy a dozen undershirts while your at it, saving a trip to a store. Hermes is smart to have such items available
