Tighty Whities Just Turned 75: Let’s Celebrate With Some Gratuitous Photos Of Dudes In Their Undies!
According to All The Rage, tighty whities just celebrated their 75th birthday. Whether your guy is the boxers or briefs type, I thought we might all enjoy taking this opportunity to ogle hot guys in their underwear, right?
“Jockey International Inc. has documented that the first pair of its men’s brief-style underpants was sold at Marshall Field & Co. in Chicago on Jan. 19, 1935,” All The Rage tells us. Another fun little fact? 25% of the male population wears ’em. But let’s be honest: We’re only really interested in the ones who look like these guys in theirs…
Exhibit A: The specimen of male perfection that is David Beckham. He’s been the face of Emporio Armani underwear since 2008, and when his 2009 campaign was revealed, it literally caused gridlock in London. Not to be a total sicko or anything here, but I wonder where that exact pair of tighty whities is at this very moment…do you think the stylist took them home and stashed them under her pillow?

Tom Brady kind of has it all: An insanely successful career in the NFL, a supermodel wife who’s about to give birth to his genetically blessed baby, and the ability to laugh at himself. Remember this Saturday Night Live episode, where the quarterback got a little, uh, help filling out his tighty whities? I know, I know…how could you forget!?
Okay so technically Mark Wahlberg is wearing boxer briefs, not tighty whities. TOMATO, TOH-MAH-TO, ladies! I’d never deprive you of a Thursday afternoon treat like this on a silly little technicality like that!
Are you still there? Still breathing? Suddenly feeling a lot smilier than you were 10 minutes ago? Want to help me wish tighty whities a happy 75th? And then tell me…does your man wear ’em? What kind of undies do you like him best in? Share!
