A man’s addiction to wearing new underwear has led to him becoming bankrupt.
Curt Almond, 26, developed his addiction after becoming “disgusted” by the thought of a partner wearing the same pants three days in a row, but spending £40 a week on new Calvin Kleins has caused him financial strife.
He said: “It got to the point where I didn’t feel comfortable unless I was wearing a new pair.
“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.”
