How popular do you think these will be?

I don't even like to wear them!!

The suits aren't very masculine, are they!

Even James Bond (Roger Moore) couldn't carry one off

Though I suppose there are people who fantasise about Edwardian underwear, and as these look exactly like combinations, there might be people who'll buy.

Sean Connery managed to carry off this baby blue number, WITH coordinating pumps.

I am slightly concerned about the number of posters who know what images of these garments are out there - before breakfast time

shock at some of the 70s adverts!

(Actually, the modern ones in the video didn't look too bad. However, I can't see DH, who is normally quite adventurous in clothes, wearing one.)

I like them as much as I like the leggings type things under football shorts - what is that look about???

"what is that look about???"

If worn for playing sports or running, it is usually a compression layer (which is meant to do something useful about blood flow and minimising lactic acid production) or if it's frigging cold it'll be a thermal layer (with or without compression). Shorts are warn to prevent lunchbox display.

Sorry, typo 'worn'

(A warning would be needed if they weren't worn: possibly along the line of 'startling display incoming')

Unfortunately I can see it being quite popular come the summer especially with those men that think they're in TOWIE when really they live in Grimsby and its raining.
