Monster Briefs and Monster T-Shirts – merchandise



In the late 1960s/early 1970s, ads appeared in American comics and magazines for “Monster Briefs in Color!” for the “guy who has everything!” Everything but a girlfriend, perhaps?

The lurid men’s undies were adorned with reproductions of covers from Creepy, Eerie and Famous Monsters of Filmland and made from “100% stretchable nylon”. So, presumably, the guy who has “everything” also had sweaty, itchy testicles; surely, another guaranteed way to attract women?

Still, “a fashionable monster wouldn’t be caught dead without them”…


Meanwhile, monster t-shirts emblazoned with horror magazine/comic covers were also available from the same manufacturers.
