  Vintage Skivvies Underwear History
History
The history of men’s underwear reads like a novel, following the social nuances and engineering breakthroughs of America. Men’s underwear has always been primarily functional, conforming to the body's natural shape, and made of sturdy, washable fabrics. Man’s anatomy has always dictated the design of his underclothes.
 
  Vintage Skivvies Underwear Ad Gallery
Ad Gallery
Look in the Ad Gallery to find out what men were doing in any particular decade – and what they had next to their skin when they were doing it. View over 600 Men's and Boys' underwear ads, from 65 American manufacturers, in 50 National publications, spanning over 7 decades—from 1900 - 1969.
 
  Vintage Skivvies Underwear Packaging
Packaging
And just as fascinating as the articles of clothing they housed, the packaging of men’s underwear has always been a science of its own. You would simply go to your favorite department store, step up to the mens or boys underwear counter and a store clerk would assist you with your underwear measurements and purchase.
