Two-thirds of men still rely on their mothers,wives and girlfriends to keep their underwear drawer fully stocked,and even let the ladies dictate the style they wear,researchers say.

While sagging,greying Y-fronts and cotton boxer shorts are out of fashion,brightly coloured hipster trunks with eye-catching waistbands and more discreet seams are trending.

“We’ve noticed a 30 percent rise in sales of men’s pants over the last year and our stores tell us that it’s ladies looking to revamp their partners’ underwear drawers,” the Daily Mail quoted a spokesman for Sainsbury’s,who commissioned the research,as saying.

“Presentable pants are now a deal-breaker in a relationship and as such British women are on a mission. They head out underwear shopping for their men an average five times a year and buy three pairs each time – a sizeable increase on years prior,” he added.
