Covid has changed the way we interact and work. Most everyone I know is working from home with a relaxed dress code. We’ve gone from a nation of business casual to a country of Donald duckers ( Wearing a shirt but not pants while working or on zoom meetings, go back and listen to our podcast on this topic).

I haven’t bought many new clothes over the past two years. There have been very few occasions where I needed to dress up either for work or personal. I think wearing polo and jeans is dressed up now. Many are in this boat as well. What’s the point of putting on khakis and a tie when you are at home. You’re more likely to throw on sweats and a t-shirt (or less).

So this brings me to my point, I think underwear has been my one outlet for fashion. Underwear is something that most of us wear, and if you read UNB, we know you love great undies. During COVID, I have done my weekly personal challenges such as all jocks, all green, etc.

Another reason is that we can justify buying underwear over a dress shirt. Before, we didn’t know when we would need to wear our “work clothes again regularly.” This means we had more money in the clothes budget, and I know many of our readers took advantage of this and bought more undies and tried new styles and brands.

We keep getting teased. We are opening back up, and then a variant pops up. It’s unclear how many people will be going back into the office, but it seems a lot of us will be in hybrid roles if not perm work from home. There will be less of a need for “work clothes” and more of a need for comfort.

Post a comment if you fall into this category and express yourself with undies more than regular clothes.
