If You Wear Patterned Clothing, What Impacts Your Daily Decision?

Okay, so this post is mostly about underwear, but other clothing applies too.

Last year I discovered the joy of MeUndies, a company that makes really comfortable underwear adorned with fun patterns. I started out with an octopus-themed boxer briefs, and now I have at least 5 pairs (including several Star Wars designs).

So every morning I’m faced with a brief conundrum (pun intended!): Do I wear one of my plain–but comfy–bamboo fiber boxer briefs, or do I go with a fun pattern (and if so, which one)?

I’m guessing that people either (a) don’t think about it or (b) base it on one or several of the following factors:

  • how you feel
  • how you want to feel
  • what you’re doing that day

For me, it’s mostly the last option. I think about what I’m doing that day, and if I have a print that loosely matches, I go with it. If not, I may pick one based on how I’m feeling, or I’ll just go with a plain pair.

What about you? Feel free to answer in regards to any type of clothing you’re comfortable discussing.

  1. This has always sounded crazy to me in my own head, but I find myself feeling compelled to choose underwear that matches the clothes I’m wearing (generally) in terms of colors.

    Outside of the underwear realm, I definitely do the same with patterned socks. I find it to be one of life’s small pleasures to choose socks that go with the shirt I’m wearing.
