    "Y-front" is the British name for briefs. (Jockey briefs actually have a y-shaped fly, in case you never noticed...)

    Yoke fronts are a different beast, more closely related to boxers... check out tie-backs as well.

    The author must imagine he comes across as The Sane Voice Of Reason rather than as a lame, unadventurous geezer. He might as well have titled his rant, "These Gosh-Darned Young People Nowadays!"

    The only Y-front briefs I can use the fly on is the old JCPenney brand. I never have been able to use the fly on traditional Jockey briefs. The opening is too small, and it restricts the flow. We are all diff peeps. Diff shorts for diff sports (meaning dudes).

    My thoughts exactly, Steve. This column was cracking me up something fierce yesterday!
