    Regimental is the correct term when wearing a kilt (the only way to go in my honest opinion). The breeze is refreshing you just need to watch out for those gale force winds or you will be giving everybody a free show. :oops:

    TMI.

    I've found that talcum powder does wonders to help chaffing as it both acts as a dry lubricant and absorbs the sweat. I always run in 'liner' shorts and the only problem I have is my fat thighs rubbing after a couple of hours or so.

    Nope...but I sweat like a beast. I'm afraid I would make pancake crotch batter. But, what the heck...maybe I'll give it a shot one day just to see what happens.

    I used to do that but had thigh chafing issues which is why I switched to the spandex boxer-briefs.

    An odd side effect of those spandex boxer briefs - if I'm wearing them with jeans and I stick my iPhone in my back pocket, I totally can't even feel that it's there. It's the weirdest thing. On more than one occasion I almost panicked wondering where my phone was, checking my front pockets, then found it still there in my back pocket. I can feel it back there if I'm wearing normal boxers.

    This thread had to have been started to get Chaser and Doomed to post. Where are you guys?

    Talon has been throwing some bait out. Pancake crotch batter - funny and gross at the same time.

    Anyone try anti-monkey butt? Works well for sitting hours in a tractor. Haven't tried it for running though.

    My wife is surprised that I still have underwear, and is clearly shocked when it is actually worn. Of course, she isn't as shocked as she was the time I came out of the house with it draped over my head en lieu of another type of cover. (It was thin and I didn't get sunburned, so I figured it was a good move. My wife and her mother disagreed. What do you do?)
