Most men's underwear is sold in multi-packs of 3-6 pairs unless it is very expensive, and frustratingly, they come in mixed colors and often goofy colors and patterns unless you go for straight white. Seriously, there will be a 3-pack with two sedate and appropriate grey pairs and one that is candy striped turquoise and hot pink. Why?

Thus I generally choose a pack with black and grey as I feel underwear should be subdued and not clown-like in appearance.

I am pretty sure I have overthought my underwear purchases.

I don't really care about the color of my underwear; I usually just buy cheap boxer shorts in any color.

This reminds me of a story about my mother. When I was very young she had a matching leopard underwear and bra set. Somehow in my young mind I thought it would be a cool thing to bring to show and tell at school

White so you can bleach them.

Yes, that is pretty funny. I have been working on DH to get colored underwear in the whole dozen years we've been together. I am starting to throw the loosey-whities away.

For me, always colored---white and I don't get along.

I don't really wear colors. Black for black clothes, nude or pale peach, and white.
