I needed a break yesterday, so that is the reason there were no Reader Survey results. I think during this time we need to take breaks and relax. It can be stressful and I think mental health is sometimes given a second thought.
Today we are showing where you guys shop. You guys shop all over the place. We added a few new places to consider this survey and here is where you guys buy your undies!
This one is very important in the time of COVID-19. You guys shop brand sites often. Granted there are a few brands you can only get through their sites, like aussieBum. But, there are some amazing deals to be had on brand sites like Baskit’s $12 Tuesday.
This is no big surprise but you guys shop internet stores often. I think for many of us the internet stores make it easy to buy our favorite pairs without leaving home.
Not as many of you shop physical stores. For me, I love to go into an underwear specialty store to shop and see the pairs in person. You get to feel, see, and discover amazing undies. Even before UNB, I would go to the Boy Next Door here in Atlanta and buy undies and swimwear. I would go as much as my budget would allow being a broke college student.
This is no surprise to me, Department Stores selection is not what it used to be. I think most department stores have the larger brands like Calvin Klein, Diesel, sometimes 2(X)ist. Back in the day, Department stores were a lot more progressive in what they buy, now it’s pretty tame.
This is another area where the undies at close out stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx have really gone down hill. Back in the day you could pick up some amazing brands but now it’s pretty boring. Mostly boxer briefs and an occasional brief. Back in the day I would get thogs, jocks, bikinis and brands you couldn’t find. I think next year this choice will be off the list.
The big box stores are known for their bad six packs of undies. Although, there can be hidden gems to be found at these stores. Target usually has some great brands. Heck, two summers ago Target had swim briefs for $20. So don’t discount the discount stores.
I think online discount stores like Cheapundies.com will grow more and more over the next few years. They are one reason I think discount stores have less of a selection. You can get some amazing deals on close out undies.
A new one we added Amazon and Ali Express. More and more guys are buying undies from less traditional stores. I will admit that I am not one who buys from these guys. I would be in the never category (It wasn’t till this that I realized I didn’t take the survey this year! My only thing with these sites is be careful because some times you may think you are getting a large brand but it’s a counterfeit.
We will have more results for you tomorrow.
