Combat Underpants

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Over the years I've trialled a number of different styles of underpant on exercise and operations, finally settling on some very nice fake Calvin Klein 'trunks' which the lovely Mrs chickenpunk bought me in Ludlow market: very good value at £1 per pack of three. Having said that, the sad fact is that whatever style I wear, within a few days of deployment they're always in the same state: the gusset looks like the starting grid at Brands Hatch whilst the front is a lurid crunchy yellow. After a week or so of wear, these are generally consigned to the bottom of the bergan, where they lie - occasionally growling irritably - until the end of the exercise or deployment.

    What style of pants are favoured by ARRSErs? I was taken aback whilst on Saif Sareea a couple of years back to see a number of thongs hanging up amongst the washing in the sleeps area at Div HQ and, while I applaud the spirit of the plucky young ladies wearing them, it struck me that the 'string' bit must get pretty ripe, particularly in the desert heat. I wondered whether it might actually be possible to brew a variety of 'beef tea' from them. Thoughts anyone?
     
  2. 307

    307 War Hero

    Trunks all the way or cycling shorts. Trunks keep your meat and 2 veg nice and secure when legging it on a fire and manoeuvere, they just fit well, because of the fit they don tide up your arrse or anything like that either, happy days! Although I know a growing number who think that commando is the way ahead.
     
  3. Bullet proof pants, 307? :D :lol:

    Cp, the thongs that the girls wear probably won't get as manky as the under-crackers that you blerks wear because girls tend to change their lingerie more regularly than once every 5 weeks... :wink:
     
  4. Why?
     
  5. What, no one wearing the army issue green undies (skiddies) anymore. :p
     
  6. I favour the wonderful Primark boxers (costing about £1 each). Very hard wearing, snug and comfortable fit, and, as they aren't white, don't show the rigours of use that Calvin Kleins do (or ersatz versions thereof).

    The one thing I have noticed however, is that they do go missing quite a lot. Every girlfriend I have had as far back as I can remember (including the soon to be Mrs Tubby) has stolen pairs of boxers from me. Apparently they are very comfortable to sleep in! I even lost several pairs of "old faithfuls" that I could still just squeeze into so that Mrs Tubby could wear them under her combats.

    Some men travel the world leaving illegitimate offspring with women everywhere. I just leave my boxers.
     
  7. Coz we're not out to prove our Alpha-male-hetero-tigerishness by competing for 'The Biggest and Most Fragrant Wheel-Spin'! :D :lol:
     
  8. But you ruin the flavour...
     
  9. At risk of offending the Royal Military Fashion Police, I'd be a lot happier wearing a pair of these on Ops to keep my bits safe.

  10. HI CAN I RECOMMEND THESE BOXERSHORTS FOR YOU

    The Tiger boxer from Versace is fashioned in a light stretch fabric ensuring a close fitting look. The design features an eye-catching tiger skin print pattern along with an Aztec style pattern adorning the waistband

    THEY ARE A LITTLE BIT EXPENSIVE AT £65 FOR ONE PAIR OF SHORTS , BUT THESE ARE THE TYPE I WOULD BUY FOR MY GUY
     
  11. Feck of ya useless cunt :evil:
     
  12. Your guy won't need boxer shorts if he's just been spread halfway across Maysan province, now will he?
     
  13. YOU ARE DIGUSTING

  15. Is that a mispelling of 'digesting'? If so, you're absolutely right as I finished my lunch only an hour or two back.
