The Barcelona Boxer Mafia

Underwear is a simple thing when you get down to it, but for some reason, women get screwed on the pricing of it. The Victoria Secrets of the world have jacked up the prices for basic bras and underwear to insane levels. Well, it appears that the same mafia is trying to dig its dirty hands in to the underwear of men.
I had to replace boxers that were lost in DR Congo due to housecleaners who had their own system that didn’t involve telling me where my underwear had gone while they were washing it, thus causing to get left behind when trying to catch the 4:30 bus to the airport in Bukavu. Thusly, once back in Spain, I went out to try and find some new boxers only to have it revealed that everything is at least 10€. What the hell? That translates in to $15 a pair with the exchange rate. I felt blessed when I found a two pack for 18€, which were nothing special or name brand like Calvin Klein.
This is obviously the price fixing work of a mafia, based in Barcelona and making men’s underwear a lucrative enterprise. The only thing that they don’t understand is that unlike women who will replace their underwear if the wrong breeze hits it, men will not replace their underwear until the last dying thread of them falls off. A great many of us don’t see the point of underwear (let me emphasize I am not one of these bears) and so it is seen as a slightly more than necessary evil only to be bought in the rarest of circumstances. It’s because of this that I hope this mafia will die off in coming years, otherwise I predict there will be The Great Underwear Crunch of 2019 that will not be pretty.
