Fashion Icons: John L. Sullivan

29 Jul

The famous nineteenth-century boxer John L. Sullivan wore wool drawers as his boxing outfit, perhaps because he came from the cold climate of Boston—hence the American term “long johns”.  The first heavy-weight bare knuckle boxing champ even got cold… Go figure!

Thank God men realized these should be worn underneath regular pants or to bed only. This would be a very disturbing site to see just walking down the street.
