Could your undies predict an economic uptick? According to a new survey by U.K. underwear retailer Deadgoodundies, colorful briefs signal a better economy.
That's right: Dudes tend to buy for practicality, not fashion, when times are tough, according to fashion blog The Underwear Expert. That means your classic Hanes boxers are the go-to, not bright boxers or the sexybriefs your girlfriend loves. But the reverse happens when the economy starts picking up—colors become more popular. So welcome back, economy! Can we have some money now?
