BunkerWhen did you first discover your love of undies? 

Early Junior high I think.

What style was your favorite when you started to love underwear (boxer brief, brief, jock, thong or etc)?

Briefs have always been my favorite. I’ve tried boxers, boxer-briefs, trunks and thongs here and there, but I always come back to briefs.

When you bought you first pair of underwear what brand and style was it?

Spalding lo-rise briefs were the first I bought with my own money. They were no fly lo-rise briefs with a white pipe down each side. They were comfortable and colorful

What influenced your underwear buying habits when you first started your passion (catalogues, internet or friends)

I started way back when the internet was just a gleam in BBS and AOL’s eyes, so catalogs and ad circulars in the paper are what influenced me. (Showing my age?)

Are there any brands you had to have when you started buying?  Did you ever get a pair?

Brand’s really weren’t a thing then as they are now. It was more the style and colors I think people looked for. When someone said “underwear” back then, the first brands that came to mind were Hanes, Jockey, and FotL.

Did your first pair still influence the styles you wear today?

Definitely. At that time, the only options were briefs, lo-rise briefs and bikinis, or boxers. Boxers weren’t comfortable, regular briefs were boring, bikinis a bit too small…  lo-rise were just right. Most of what I have today are lo-rise briefs of one brand or another, with or without a fly.

What is your favorite style today?

Still lo-rise briefs. The vast majority are lo-rise briefs. Though there are a few boxers, boxer briefs, and bikinis mixed in, but not many.

Who are you favorite brands now?

Aussiebum, Bunker, Calvin Klein, Go Software, Reebok are what I have the most of.  Though the drawers also have a few Hanes, Hugo, 2xist, Tommy, and Jockey… among others mixed in.
