A recent survey of 2,000 British men conducted by TENA Men, which makes garments for men with bladder problems, showed that one in 10 men have had discomfort from wearing skinny jeans, the Telegraph reported. Half of those men said they had problems with their groin, while over a quarter of them had bladder trouble. One in five had a twisted testicle!

If the right fabric is selected in summer, you will be surprised to find out that some long sleeves and full trousers can provide more cooling than an open T-shirt and shorts that comprises the wrong fabric composition.
