    this may seem weird, but does anyone feel weird when checking out when youre buying underwear in a store? like waiting in line people see what kind youre buying. or even the cashier checking you out. does anyone get weird about it or wonder what people think when they see you buying a particular kind of underwear

    No. You're overestimating how many people care.

    yesterday I bought 2 pkgs of hanes boxers in target and the cashier was a guy and he said to me with a smile " I like the prints and plaids you picked " so I said thanks and paid and that was it. I really don't care who sees me buying underwear

    Only time I think about it is when the cashier at the Jockey store is a good looking woman, at that point I like to think that she's checking out my selection and me. But, I'm sure that she probably isn't since she is in an underware store so it's just part of her routine.

    I always tear a bit of the package open- I like soft cotton (boxers and they are more absorbent) and NOT the cheap poly/cotten blends (also don't like boxers with the separate 'band' on top....digs in)

    I would rather do that than waste $$ on boxers I will never wear....

    I don't care what the cashier thinks.

    Does not bother me at all. The best pair of boxers I have purchased to date is Dockers made of bamboo. Very comfy!

    Ya, it worked that way for me, too. I used to feel self-conscious years ago, but now I get off on buying underwear. If the there is a good looking cashier, I'll purposely go to his line. If he says anything about my purchase, that's when I tell him that "I'm into different underwear." just to liven his day.

    Not a problem - I'm sure they are all impressed by my good taste, and slightly intrigued if I make a purchase with a nice, roomy pouch!

    I've been mainly ordering underwear off of the internet so I haven't had the face-to-face situation with the cashier in a while, but it is something I've wondered.

    Until now, I never gave it any thought, but I wonder what the person at the online store was thinking when they were packing the box to ship my underwear? :)

    I usually go to Marshalls or TJ-Max and get whatever they have on sale. Last week I got 2 light blue Ck trunks, and a pack of white 2xist white boxerbriefs for less than 15 bucks. Never even think about what the cashier and other people in line think. LOL

    Those that don't care - good for you.

    Some of us do care. It may seem weird, it may even be erotic depending on if you are attracted to the cashier. Personally I like to buddy up to a sales guy and tell him exactly what I'm looking for, make him work, ya know.

    thanks for replying yall.

    i dunno. ive recently switched from wearing boxers all the time to wearing mainly boxerbriefs and briefs. ive just always grown up around that stigma of briefs being the 'gay' or 'nerdy' type of underwear if you wore it as a teenager and only our parents and grandparents wore them.

    i know it just seems stupid but i always wonder like if i run into a hot girl that i know what she would think. or if the cashier is like this kid is a nerd for buying these briefs (even though theyre the FAR superior kind). or if i ran into a friend in line or something.

    just me being weird i guess

    im right there with you man. in high school i wore boxers to fit in, but now in my post-graduate years ive switched to boxerbriefs and briefs bc i like my package to be secure while im working, doing shit throughout the day, whatever. but yeah, im always like "what does this cashier think about me buying these briefs?" thats why im online shopping these days :) freshpair, undergear, aussiebum, all great sites.
