I think it's still pretty on topic. And in any case, when you spend premium on apparel you expect certain things. For instance, I generally expect
(with proper care) for my underwear to remain comfortable and last a few years. (I've had some over 5)
I come from a family that always purchased top end things, but kept them until they fall apart. So while my underwear collection might set off some
OWSers, it's not as if I bought it all on one shopping spree.
Be it underwear or anything, making cheap products with cheap craftsmanship is great way for planned obsolescence... (For some products it's good,
some not) Which is where this technology will probably see it's make or break point.
Did they give a timeline of how long the underwear would be effective for? Because I wouldn't want to have to be buying these things on the regular.
And most people are reluctant to buy underwear in the first place...
Although, from the other angle, someone with irritable bowel syndrome might have no problem with frequent underwear purchases.
