Just wondering what is the longest time period anybody has worn the same pair of pants/knickers.

My record was 9 days whilst travelling around Italy in the sweaty summer time.

It's amazing - pants begin to crawl on their own after long periods of wear!

I had two friends who decided to wear the same pair of jeans, every day, for an entire summer. What with Montreal being hot and humid, it wasn't the most pleasant of smells by week two. They'd sit and compare stains, too - especially the one who worked as a short-order cook. Why men do the things they do is simply beyond me .

As for underwear, though - my boyfriend and his friends went a week in the same pair (well, they EACH wore a different pair) when camping. It started off as a lazy thing and then turned into a challenge. Ick. Even two days in the same pair would be more than enough for me!

don't you carry even one for change?

that way you can wash it and wear the following day

Once in the mountains I had to wear a polypropilene suit (those pants and shirt that donĀ“t sweat) for over 10 days. We use to get wet in the day and we tried to dry the suits at nightfall to can wear it again to sleep in the freezing nights. After few days everything (and I mean everything) did smell to smoke and the smell of the underwear was covered, but by the looks of people when we returned back...

yeah really... it was just way too cold in the morning and at night to worry about it, there was no opportunity to shower so I stank anyway... Plus I was 17 and it was sort of a competition... one guy lasted almost a month..

I have since become somewhat hygene obsessed... go figure..

wore my army pants for months at a stretch...

requirements:

no undies
stay in a dry climate
beat the dust off your pants regularly

being a bit of a slut helps

Lee, you're in Malaysia (I suppose) and Alex is in Himalaya.
Alex, try to do that for 15 days in Malaysia!
I think you might not even survive 3 days outdoor!

I had to do like 4 days in the amazon but the only reason i didnt change was because i couldnt face inflicting at least 30 bites on me whilst i changed!
