Y fronts a most comfortable choice of pants for us men

Updated on August 29, 2011


Y-fronts, Y-fronts get your lovely Y-fronts!
Y-fronts, Y-fronts get your lovely Y-fronts!


 Y-fronts are pants and not just any pants I hasten to add, they are the most comfortable pants I could ever wear and I challenge anyone to say otherwise. Often the ridicule of geeks pants comes to mind at the thought of these pants called the Y-fronts, but no more!!!

You see Y-fronts are the pants of a super hero if only they did wear them, if they had nice gold trim designs on them and became slightly more fashionable, then they would be the ultimate super hero accessory, but until then we will have to make do with the spandex which is something similar but elasticated for extra comfort and so we can do the splits atop buildings Van Damme style.

A couple of side notes about the Y-front design:

  1. The Y stands for "Yo look at my well hung piece of fish stick!"
  2. Sometimes the pattern on a pair of Y-fronts looks like a grandads slipper.
  3. Y? could also mean because I have two meatballs too.

Anyway the Y-front is king in my house, don't let other people fool you about the Y-front not having any power with the women in our lives they love the Y-fronts really they just are too hot and groovy that they just want to touch the Y on your front!

Answer this pants poll!

Which is best?

      Y-fronts are very comfortable underwear and look great on! Jockey retro version with contrasting trim are very cool. Wild patterned Y fronts are sexy!

      Bought some traditional Yfronts recently (not the skimpy modern kind), and cannot believe how comfy and supportive they are. Just don't feel I have any underpants on, which is great. BTW I am only 22, and don't care what others think.

      Oh Princessa, I got lots of Y's, so many choices, so little time to wear them!

      Happy new year!

      Sorry Waynet, but the stories of John Major's grey Y-Fronts have forever tainted that style of underwear.
