There are now fewer than 100 days until Christmas – and specialist men's underwear retailer has a special warning today for shoppers. Buy early!

"You've heard it all before but this year in particular the shop early message is vital," says DGU's in-house expert Adam Davies.

Last posting dates from the UK for overseas parcels run from early to mid December and the last day for First Class post within the UK is December 20th – but the advice from Deadgoodundies is to get organised BEFORE December…

"Men's underwear and swimwear are popular seasonal gifts and we are urging all our customers to shop online early to beat possible delays in the postal system this winter," says Adam.

He has good reason, and insider knowledge, for the DGU announcement.

  • Black Friday falls on November 26th – so Black Friday shopping will create a huge surge in parcels moving around the world just as the Christmas rush begins

"We hope not, but there could be a perfect storm and the world will hit 'peak parcel' way earlier than usual in 2021. Our lovely customers have been very understanding about delays during the covid pandemic and we will still be shipping as usual throughout the autumn and festive season," Adam adds.

"If you prefer to do all your Christmas shopping in December, please consider using services like Special Delivery in the UK to ensure your parcel has priority in the system."
