A restaurant manager has revealed how he developed a bizarre addiction – to wearing a new pair of boxer shorts every day which led him into bankruptcy.

According to reports, Curt Almond, 26, of Bristol, claims at one point he was spending GHC11, 531 a year on underpants, which means he spent GHC31 every day.

The Nando’s manager said: ‘When I first started wearing new boxers every day, I loved it. I treated myself to really nice Calvin Klein ones. It always felt great to slip into a crisp pair.

‘It got to the point where I didn’t feel comfortable unless I was wearing a new pair.’

But the mounting bills caught up with Curt and finally forced him to face the reality of his expensive habit.

He continued: ‘eventually my money started to run out and I had to buy budget ones instead. Finally, when a bill came in, I looked at finances and realised that I was spending all my savings on underpants, so I managed to wean myself off the compulsion.’

Curt said his attachment to new pants began following the breakdown of a relationship.

It was only once Curt had binned his boxer addiction that he felt comfortable chatting about it with his friends.

The manager says he has finally waved goodbye to his obsession with new underwear – but still occasionally treats himself to a nice fresh pair.
