June 06, 2008 - United States Of America
Just in time for Father's Day, Jockey is revealing the true age of men's underwear and it's not a pretty sight! Stretched out and stained, lots of dads' drawers beg to be replaced.
A survey released from Jockey International Inc reveals that more than a quarter of men in America (26%) own underwear that is five or more years old, and are in need of replacement, and a shocking 11 percent of men own underwear that is aged over a decade! Sadly, if you peek into men's unmentionable drawers across the country, you are likely to find underwear that is not in wearable condition.
Additional Survey Findings:
- Age Matters When asked the true age of their underwear, men admit to owning pairs 3-4 years old (24%); 5-9 years old (13%); and 10 or more years old (11%).
- Oldies, Not Goodies These ancient undergarments don't always stand the test of time. Seventy-seven percent admit that their old drawers are tattered, discolored, or stained. Just a small group of Americans
- (23%) say theirs are just like new!
- Time to Let Go Men admit that they are holding on to old underwear despite the fact that it no longer fits (15%); has lost elasticity (30%); is stained/not the original color (36%); or is covered in holes (14%).
