I am having a super busy week coming off the Labor Day holiday and a bit of writer’s block. This next month marks 10 years of doing UNB. I feel like I’ve done it all on the site. I may feel that way but there’s always more to cover, it’s just the time to do write it all up! And, so many posts I have done can always be revisited and changed. Tonight was a bit different, I was looking through the reader survey and something struck me, as I said this survey helps us with content.

I was looking at the favorite colors. You guys chose the top four colors were Black, White, Blue and Red. Red isn’t necessarily a classic color. Black, blue (Navy), white and grey. But These results were not close, where it was separated by a small margin. It was pretty much a blow out for these four colors.

As I have said many times classic cuts and styles are not boring. I know we have guys who go for day glow pink and I say ROCK THAT PINK. But if you love the classic colors never be ashamed or shy away from what you like. There is no right or wrong in underwear, it’s all what you like. You have to wear it for 18 hours a day and wear what gives you confidence.

So why are these color so popular? I wish I had this super scientific or sociological insight but I don’t. I think part of is what you were raised on and second these colors go with everything. I subconsciously match my underwear, shirt or tie. It’s been a habit for so long it’s ingrained into who I am.

If you like these colors, share in the comments why you love them? Am I right or is it something completely different?
