IFOP questioned 2005 individuals representing the overall French population for their study which also showed that 29% of respondents didn't wash their hands after using the bathroom.

Now says there's no excuse for avoiding fresh men's underwear boxers or briefs daily. There are so many brilliant male underpants collections including France's very own, and very famous, HOM brand.

"How can Frenchmen not appreciate their own designer underwear for men? HOM gave the world one of it's best selling male thongs, the Freddy, as well as some of the lightest maxi shorts and strings in Plume," says DGU director Adam Davies.

"HOM was one of the first menswear collections to introduce male lingerie with their 3001 designs, followed today by Temptation boxers and briefs in luxury mesh and lace, sensual silky fabrics and overtly sexy looks. And when it comes to everyday undies for gents, HOM patented the ambidextrous horizontal HO1 pouch which is still an all-time favourite at"

As Adam added: "We are here to help the men of France enjoy a fresh pair of underwear every day. We ship to France and 80-plus other countries around the world from the UK. Nous vous souhaitons d'agréables achats – or in English, happy shopping Monsieur!"

The HOM HO1 Mini Brief sells year round in black, white, grey melange and navy, supplemented each season by a new colour - this spring it's peacock blue. This is an updated version of the French brand's original design, with a modernised waistband, even softer 62% cotton 22% modal 13% elastane fabric, an improved patented opening and body-friendly flatstitched seams.
