    Default Store launches underpants for left-handed men

    Store launches underpants for left-handed men



    Wed Sep 23, 3:00 pm ET

    LONDON (Reuters) Ė A British store is launching a range of underpants for left-handed men, an innovation it says will save them both time and embarrassment in front of the porcelain.

    The new range, by UK-based Hom, will have a horizontal opening instead of a vertical slit accessed from the right-hand side, breaking a tradition that has lasted for 75 years.

    "In our view, this is a vital step toward equality for left-handed men," said Rob Faucherand of Debenhams store.

    Almost 10 percent of British men are believed to be left handed but men's Y-fronted underpants have traditionally had a right-handed opening from the time they were invented in 1935.

    "As a result," Debenhams said, "left-handed men have to reach much further into their pants, performing a Z shaped maneuver through two 180 degree angles before achieving the result that right handed men perform with ease."

    Previously, it added, boxer shorts, with an adaptable, ambidextrous opening in the middle, have been the underpants of choice for left handed men.

    The new pants mean that left handed men can finally go to the bathroom as quickly and efficiently as their right-handed colleagues, the store said.

    "Switching the opening from vertical to horizontal may sound like a small step, but it's the major breakthrough that many have been waiting for," added Faucherand.

    I'm ambidextrous, I can do anything for the most part with either hand. But if your strictly a lefty, and aren't coordinated enough to perform that one task with your right hand, well I just don't know. Go home to take a piss I guess.

    In short..............Stupid

    You lost me at a horizontal opening instead of a vertical slit

    Just give me my Hanes Boxer Briefs with gorilla elbow entry slot... and I'm shaken, tucked, zipped and gone.

    hmm.. I'm left handed, and I never even considered that this is/was an issue. The only issue I remember being left handed in school is that I had the side of my hand covered in ink all the time writing in notebooks (for righties, going left to right on a written page forces most lefties to have their hand rest on what was just written, and it usually ends up covering the bottom of your hand in ink. erasable ink from when I was in school was the worst culprit).

    Left handers day is on my birthday, so I got that going for me.. which is nice.

    Yes... Same experience here. Even the erasable ink part.

    This is just crap.

    What I am waiting for are socks that are clearly marked 'left' and 'right'.

    I can kind of see what they mean if they're assuming people just unzip their fly to go to the bathroom. But I'm right-handed and that doesn't even work; I have to unbutton and open the top of my pants if I actually want to pull the thing out properly. Doesn't everyone do this? And while I'm right-handed, it wouldn't be physically impossible for me to unzip a zipper with my left hand, not in the least... so why is it so hard to do the opposite? Maybe I'm thinking about this too hard!

    I'm left-handed, but this product wouldn't change my lifestyle much since I have to use two hands to hold the thing up anyway.
