The undies index

Hands up who’s surprised by the result of this survey on the hygiene habits of the unfairer sex… A group of trend-spotters have vox-popped the men of Britain and discovered (shock horror) they rarely change their underwear.

The study, commissioned by Debenhams, found men only buy new underwear when entering a new relationship – the rest of the time they just make do and mend.

Want to know if you’re The One? Forget reading the traditional signs (body language + kisses per text message + invitations to family occasions), all you need to do is count his Y-fronts because, according to this report, ‘If he buys more then 31 pairs every year he’s trying desperately to impress the woman in his life.’

And it’s not just the common bloke who wears clothes way past their use-by date. Robert Pattinson - the toast of Britain with the premier of New Moon this week - has revealed his wardrobe changes are less than frequent.

‘This top is probably fresh but these jeans are a few days old,’ he said in a recent interview. ‘It gets to the point where even I can't stand the air around me. I don't know, my personal hygiene - it's so disgusting.’

Lucky old Kristen… And, let’s just say, if those rumours of an on-set romance are true it’s more then likely she has the enviable job of restocking R-Pattz's underwear drawer (a job many Twi-hards would die for). Apparently, the average man only buys his own underwear for 17 years of his life – the rest of the time it’s down to mothers, wives and girlfriends.

If that’s the case they can return the favour… And make ours Rigby & Peller!
