My very slender 7yo ds wants to wear Y-fronts, but I can't find any in children sizes. I've tried googling but keep coming up against soft-porn blogs! Jockey and Wolsey sites don't list any kids' stuff.

Any ideas?

Okay, I'm 45 and wear Jockey's still (Y-fronts) and as a boy wore the Junior version. Jockey stopped making Y-fronts in boy's sizes a long while ago because with the advent of the boxer-short in the early 80's, Y-fronts have just gotten a horrible geeky reputation with the young, even 6yo's are seen in boxers nowadays! On a personal level the comfort and practicality of the Y-front as a brief has suited me lifelong so why would I change? It's cause people bow to fashion to make them look cool with their friends.

If your boy prefers this style already at what, age 7? - he has my warmest congrats - I would advise getting him to M&S who at least still do the A-line brief (as do Calvin Klein) and if he was age 13/14 of course then he might fit into a small man's size although Jockey manufacture Y-fronts only as low as 32" waist these days. Hope this helps!

GAP -and they normally have some in the sale. I have stocked up for DS who is three. He doesn't use the hole, but likes being like daddy! I think a pack of three is def less than a tenner.

i was raised in jockey y fronts and both my boys went from diapers to y fronts just like daddy, i did manage to find some on ebay some time ago and they had y fronts for boys fron 3yr od and up, they also had kangaro pouch which i also wear but at my sons ages there isnt much to support yet but they still enjoy looking like daddy
