    Some men admit to keeping their old underwear for more than 20 YEARS, a new poll reveals

    That’s pants! Some men admit to keeping their old underwear for more than 20 YEARS, a new poll reveals

    • Clothing firm Tom Clinch carried out a poll on men’s underwear buying habits
    • It found that some men only purchase new underwear once every five years 
    • Some men have also admitted to keeping underwear for more than 20 years

    Some men have admitted to keeping underwear for more than 20 years, a new poll has found.

    Clothing firm Tom Clinch conducted a poll, which found that the average British man only buys new pants once every five years.

    But even when they do decide to get new briefs, partners or parents often by the essential item as birthday or Christmas gifts, The Sun reported. 

    More than two in five men admitted their partners buy their underwear, while more than a third still rely on their mothers.

    Tom Clinch want men to take more care and pride when purchasing their pants. 

    The firm’s founder Nick Clinch said it was ‘depressing’ to find out how ‘infrequently’ men invest in underwear.

    He said: ‘They don’t hesitate to throw money at expensive suits but cut corners with underwear. It’s like buying a Ferrari and filling it up with cooking oil. 

    ‘It breaks my heart to see women in shops dutifully buying packs of pants for their husbands in their 40s and 50s.’

    But some experts say underwear should be replaced every year as, even with regular washing, they can still become a breeding ground for infection-causing bacteria. 

    This comes as a YouGov survey found loose fitting boxer shorts are the undergarment of choice for 38 per cent of men.

    It found briefs or Y-fronts were favoured by 27 per cent, while 25 per cent preferred a tighter boxer. 

    Experts said the reason for briefs’s popularity is due to support, particularly with men who use the gym frequently. 

    But fertility doctors say wearing tight pants for too long can affect sperm count.
