UK men reveal how long they keep their pants and it’s scary

You may have already guessed this, but British men’s habits around their briefs and boxers can be pretty gross. 

A new study found men are holding onto their pants no matter what condition they are in.

The damning figures have shown that one in three wear their underwear for two days before throwing them in the wash – and those were just the ones who admitted it.

A majority of men’s undergarments are at least five-years-old, but 10 per cent said they are likely to hold onto them for 10 years or more.

The survey also revealed more than 80 per cent of men wear pants with holes in them.

And almost half can’t even remember the last time they bought a pair.

The nationwide survey of 2,000 men confirmed that bachelors keep their underwear for two years longer than men in a relationship.

Rob Nicholson, owner of Box & Scandal, which organised the survey said: ‘These statistics show that UK men aren’t taking their underwear seriously enough. We believe it’s because they are too busy to think about it.

‘The average male Brit’s underwear is nearly five years old – although one in 10 hold onto their pants for more than a decade – proof that half the population is wearing saggy briefs with more holes than a Swiss cheese.’
