Poll Results – Shopping at men’s underwear stores
Before the Holidays we asked you if you ever gave underwear as gifts and would you shop at a men’s underwear store. We have the results and wanted to share them with you:
You guys def want to shop at a men’s underwear store.
The majority of you guys want to travel 25 miles or less to shop at a men’s underwear store
Most of you have shopped at a men’s Underwear store already. Which is higher than I thought it would be!
Much like the results above 25 miles appears to be the sweet spot for distance to an underwear store.
Most guys want the option of shopping online and also at a store.
Some of the Favorite stores you guys shop are:
- underU4men in Portland OR
- Andrew Christian, and some smaller ones in SF, San Diego
- Toolbox in Indianapolis while there for other events.
- Skivvies (Dallas), Tapelenders (Dallas), Universal Gear (Houston & DC), and 2 stores in Ft. Lauderdale/Wilton Manners in Florida.
- Andrew Christian Flagship & Factory Stores. WeHo Block Party, When living in Northern California there were a few mens underwear stores in the Castro, but they seemed to close before I moved back to Los Angeles
- Egoist Underwear and Cram in Chicago
- BoyNextDoor in Atlanta
- Mojoman, Orlando; Pride Factory, Ft Lauderdale; several others in Ft Lauderdale; one in Miami I don’t remember the name
Why do guys shop at Underwear stores?
- I had a long layover in Portland and was downtown killing time when I happened upon the store, so I went in and shopped
- Same day availability
- It was nice to feel the fabrics and see the options
- Variety. I love trying new things, and going to a dedicated men’s store exposes you to brands you might not know about
- I like to be able to feel the fabrics if possible — Just a material description doesn’t tell the whole story. Also, when I shop in person, I am more likely to buy stuff — when I shop on line, I frequently decide its too expensive when its time to put in my credit card.
Why don’t you shop at underwear stores;
- None close to me. Would take over an hour to travel to nearest one
- Awkward, not sure about trying on things
- It’s fun to go to underwear stores in a town where no one knows you. You don’t have to worry about being seen by your neighbor while shopping for thongs and jockstraps
- I prefer places with a good selection of brands, and the closest men’s underwear stores to me are brand specific (Andrew Christian) — and even if I like the brand, I like to mix it up a bit
- Their selection isn’t what I’m into. Lack of thong styles
