Don't boycott the boy-cuts: Vote for National Underwear Day

August 5, 2009 |  1:41 pm

Jesus luz We'll be brief: We here at All the Rage are sick of our friends at the Food section's Daily Dish blog having all the fun when it comes to one-hit holidays: doughnuts, corndogs, martinis. whose tagline is "Buy underwear in your underwear" -- is offering the clothing world a chance to shine, albeit a bit more discreetly. Since 2003, Freshpair has declared this date to be the day to "feel comfortable mentioning 'unmentionables,' and celebrating skivvies."

Want to help the cause? Vote to establish National Underwear Day here. Game on for granny panties! (Or thongs, boy-cut shorts, boxers, briefs ... we're nonpartisan pants lovers).
