    I know quality is more important than quantity when it comes to fashion, but what about underwear? How important is quality and more important, how many pairs should a man own. I figure 2 pairs of boxer briefs for the day (change after the gym) and then a pair of boxer shorts for sleeping. This is 3 a day or 21 pairs a week. What do you think about keeping 21 pairs, or is this number too high. As my underwear drawer is overflowing I am thinking about purging some. How many should be in a tasteful non smelly man's wardrobe? Thanks! [​IMG]

    now, bear with me for a second here, because this may sound completely crazy to you.

    but maybe, just maybe, it should depend on how often you do laundry / how often you send it out?

    it may seem like a radical concept now, but sleep on it, and you might find your answer.

    shit, if you wash them after every wear you're not going to get sweet high contrast fades.

    Always purchase dark colored undies due to epic stainz.

    Is TP in short supply at your house?
