One of my favorite Union Suit articles was written by Bill Reed, dated December 6, 2005, and was entitled: State of the Union Suit!   Hopefully, he won't mind a partial reprint.  

It began: 


"Maybe it's the sheath of cotton running seamlessly over the body like a second skin. Maybe it's nostalgia. Maybe it's the giggle-inducing flap that buttons up in back. Or maybe, just maybe, it's an elaborate excuse for men to pull off those tighty-whities and slip into bright-red underwear.


Whatever it is, the venerable union suit won't go away....The one-piece wonder of long underwear has been around for nearly 150 years, and sparks vivid memories for its devotees."


To read his entire fun article go to:
