Skivvies or Fashion Statement

I decided I needed some new underwear, probably not the most exciting thing to purchase, but a needful thing, at any rate. So, I went on line to a couple of large retailers to see what simple, white, boxer briefs would cost. On both the sites I checked (which shall remain nameless to keep me from getting hammered by the fashion police) the price range for three (3) pairs of underwear were from $25 to $36 or more. Geeze, I realize I live in the modern world and all, but I’m past the age (way past) that I’m worried about my underwear making a fashion statement. I just need something to keep me relatively comfortable and friction free when I’m wearing pants. (I regularly wear pants at work and home, otherwise people point and laugh, besides which not doing so would be socially unacceptable to most of the people I know) However, one of the big box retailers (which shall also remain nameless in fairness to the above mentioned fashion police) offers the same sort of thing at $11 for six pair, much more in line with reality. I start wearing $95 pants to work, I may purchase $35 underwear, but I doubt it.
