I've noticed that the term "knickers" are now being used for mens underwear for thong and g-string in the UK. But the term underpants are still used for mens underwear for boxers, boxer briefs, y-fronts, jockey shorts. Has any one else noticed this?
I wounder if its because 'knickers' would be more of an appropriate term for them instead of underpants?
Could it be that thongs and g-string are more associated with women's underwear, so the term "Knickers" seems more correct?
