The pyro panties were once worn exclusively by Scandinavian electricians, Formula One racers and firemen, but now a Manhattan boutique called Operations is selling the Swedish-made flame retardant undies to guys whose jobs arent so hot.
Operations co-owner Michael Leen describes the briefs as black, tight-fitting and sexy and purrs, Im wearing them right now.
For those worried about the fireproof mod acrylic fabric suffocating their boys, Leen insists the underwear is sheer and totally breathable.
The store has had a few celebrity brief browsers, but no buyers. According to Leen, Robin Williams stopped by the store and bought a lot of stuff, but the Mrs. Doubtfire star said he was doubtful hed need any fireproof undies.
Not to worry, though. Leen says he has several overseas customers, and a lot of moms call in to buy the underwear for their sons graduating from fire school.
