UK Store Launches Underpants For Left-Handed Men – Reuters

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.”
