Rarely do you witness males getting excited about exercise or leisure gear. The universal gym outfit for the entire male population usually involves a T-shirt or singlet and black mid-thigh length shorts.
So why are these Lululemon male pants selling off the charts? And at $129 a pop no less?
It’s got everything to do with the comfort of a man’s testicles.
These pants are literally called the Anti-Ball Crushing Pant, or ABC Pant for short. One glance at them and it is clear that yes, a man’s testicles would be more comfortable in there. There’s none of that, “Ugh, what’s THAT?! I can’t look away!” effect that one experiences upon spotting a young man who has squeezed his “area” into a sperm-killing pair of ultra-tight skinny jeans.
The product description on the Lululemon site states, quite specifically, that the pants feature “a wide inner-leg gusset [which] makes space for your junk”. The pants are also made from “Warpstreme” fabric, which is a special Lululemon fabric with a four-way stretch. FOUR! WAY! STRETCH! Imagine all the jiggling one’s nuts could do in THAT fabric!
