Ok, they do more than churn out stereotypically gorgeous light-hair, light-eyed actresses. They also now churn out jaw-droppingly expensive underwear for men.

You know how your girlfriend/fiance/wife/stranger-you-met-at-that-swanky-bar-that-one-time is sporting the latest in lingerie? These $100 Underoos are your way of showing you also pay top dollar to hide your privates.
With a design that looks like something Batman wears under the Batsuit, these high-end boxers have an adjustable mesh pouch and vents on the lower back for aeration to let ‘it’ breathe.
