    Hi all! My best friend's hubby works outside and is currently on a job halfway up a mountain here in the Appalachians. He is a dear sweet fella--hard-working, doesn't complain much, but dang it, it's cold out there. Ms. Marie is washing his single pair of functioning longjohns every 2 days--they are probably 20 yrs old, ratty...just plain fugly. She's tried to find him something similar but keeps running into rayon and stuff (those did NOT keep him warm and he went back to the old, ate-up %100 cotton ones).

    Help help! :)

    1. Tell him to wear regular underwear under them would be my suggestion.
    then...
    2. stop washing the longjohns so prematurely...no wonder they're worn out.

    You can get 100% cotton thermal longjohns just about anywhere around here.
    Or get them on line.

    (now don't get too excited looking at the men in their underwear granny.)

    He's doing construction-type this and that, so he goes back and forth between freezing and sweating his bahoogies off LOL So I'm guessing Marie washes them out of self defense :D I first told her to check the tag and do an interwebz search but the tag is long gone...plenty of links there, thank you, I'm sure she'll be able to find something reasonably priced that can replace his oldies but goodies. :)
