Andiamo riding undies, Black
Andiamo riding undies (padded skins)
Andiamo means hurry up in Italian.
We sold more than a thousand of these in the early 2000s, then for some reason—maybe their syntheticness—we quit overnight. I’ve been thinking about them lately, and it’s time to bring them back.
They’re lightly padded seamless boxer-brief styles. They’re not hot, they weigh nothing and don’t absorb sweat, so there’s no threat of clamminess, and they dry out in minutes, so they’re ideal for travel, too. You don’t feel like you’re sitting on a potholder. You can tell something’s down there presssing on and cushioning your crotch, but just barely and none of it's bad.
As a bonus for all you anticaptitalists, Andiamo has been a ONE PERSON COMPANY since 1986. The owner is a woman and she has three cottage sewers. A real cottage industry.
The price hasn’t gone up since 2004. She told me that and I asked “why?” and she said, “Why do I need more money? At first I thought this was going to be a big thing; now I’m happy to make some retirement money,” or something almost exactly that.
- They're black
- Inseam length: 7". Cut it shorter if the legs are too tight or too long and they won't tear or fray even if you don't hem them.
By the way: No returns on underwear. It don't matter if you don't even open them. It's the law, and if you think we want to go into the slammer for taking returns on undies, you're morosely mistaken.
