Re: Men's Underwear Confessional!

Commando under nothing is easiest and lowers the laundry load. Board shorts (pockets!!) or a pareu (lava-lava, sarong, tupenu, etc) if a need to cover up, both commando as well. Let the boys free.

Interesting point of view, but probably wrong. Historians generally agree that the original purpose of men's underwear was the reduce the laundry load. That would my view.



But who knows.

Re: Men's Underwear Confessional!

Commando here. Lived most of my life in Florida, working very hard outdoors (pool renovation contractor). I can't fathom why people in hot climates would voluntarily wear an unnecessary additional layer of clothing over their nasties. Or sleep with clothes on, that's another mystery.

It's the original wicking fabric. Organic too.

But who knows.

If you wear nothing over top of commando then you’re not wearing anything at all - less laundry, right?

As for soiling outerwear by not wearing underwear, that depends on the outerwear and on the hygiene. With any long pants you’d be right, it’s cheaper to wash underwear daily than it is to wash pants daily, regardless of how much or little you wipe or drip. But for board shorts with builtins or pareus that fit loosely no problems. And no changing to go swimming.

Cold climates require different solutions.

Re: Men's Underwear Confessional!

Linen is the fabric of the gods. And boxer shorts made from it can be had. For a price. Baggier, more freely moving, and linen pants and shorts can also do much to remedy the flaws of other sorts of underwear.

Right??? Never understood that concept, not since I was about ten years old.

Re: Men's Underwear Confessional!

One benefit to sleeping in pyjamas on a boat, including socks, gloves and a headpiece, is to keep the salt on your body away from your bed sheets. On passage we use very light weight merino base layers as sleep-only clothing - keeps the damp out. Alternatively, you could use a sacrificial sheet to achieve the same effect, at the cost of a bit more laundry.

Re: Men's Underwear Confessional!

Another Caribbean Commando here! But, on a recent trek to Everest base camp where insulating layers are good, I became a fan of Merino wool underwear...quite comfy. Not likely I will wear them when back in the tropics though!

We shower at night. If water usage is an issue, we use freshwater and cloth and 'sponge-bathe'. This allows us to go longer between washing the sheets.

I keep one pair of socks on the boat, and it'd be a task to find them. I refuse to sleep in clothes, and wouldn't sleep with socks and gloves and a headpiece on any night, never mind a hot humid night.
