On Knickers

 On Knickers (and other underthings). A new piece by me in the LRB.


One thought on “On Knickers

  1. When I was a child, of about seven, I am seventy seven now, my mum took me into a clothes shop to buy me a jacket. When we had finished the purchase, the dignified male shop assistant said, indicating that there were matching trousers available, “… And the knickers Modom?” I was excruciatingly embarrassed by his use of such a, ‘naughty’ word. Obviously though it was not naughty to him and there must have been a time when knickers could be short inner or outer garments for both females and males?
