Long Johns, also known as thermal underwear or long Johns, is a type of two-piece pair of underwear which consists of long legs with short sleeves and usually worn in winter months. It’s widely used by men under their pants in colder countries. It’s a very useful pair of underwear for people who have to stand for a long time, who are exposed in the snow, who work in hot environments and who want a comfortable pair of underwear.
Long Johns come in various sizes and designs, depending on the person wearing it. Some types of long Johns are fitted in all the way through, so they fit you like a glove while others have a few inches at the bottom. Long Johns can either be made from cotton or polyester. The first type is more common but not as luxurious as the latter one, as these materials tend to shrink after a certain amount of washing, which can lead to discomfort. Polyester is cheaper than cotton and some manufacturers even offer you free shipping if you purchase more than one size. It’s recommended to buy one size bigger than your normal underwear size.
There are many different styles of long Johns that you can choose from. One of the most popular styles is the “trouser” style. These are usually found in dark colors such as black and brown. They usually have ruffles on them and the bottoms of the legs are trimmed in shiny fabric to enhance the look of the underwear.
