Since there are several visitors interested in men’s thongs/strings or string/thong men showing up here but finding only my Lego joke, I thought I’ll do a serious poll about this topic:
The “Yes” answers are not intended to imply you’re wearing exclusively strings/thongs, occasional thong wearers may (and should) also reply with “yes”.
And for quibblers similar to myself: The answers are verbalized from the men’s point of view; women who want to answer please imagine them re-worded accordingly, referring to your boyfriend/husband…

I don’t mind if some products in the world of fashion get an English name in Germany – Hot Pants and T-Shirt, for instance, are common for a long time, and I can also accept, say, Gym Shorts and Long Sleeve Shirt (regular fit).

in the preview for next week at Tchibo: “Spa and Sportswear 2007” with only English product names (no longer available).
