Apparently David Beckham has one!!!

For men it is called a BSC.

It was definitely a requirement when I spent a hot year at a small town near Nice, called Frejus in the late 60's.

It prevented prickly heat.

To hijack this thread a little more.....

a BSC is pretty much the norm (apparently) in Brazil too. :wink:

er ..... now I am indeed VERY confused!! The question is whether or not I actually NEED to be educated further given my time of life etc. etc.

....tho' curiosity is indeed a powerful thing. ....?

PS "standardisation" might prove a little - how shall we say? - disappointing not to say uncomfortable. I mean, how far does it go (if you get my drift)?

Thanks for that Tim !!

Nothing wrong with good old fashioned lather and razor

Incidently, with you lot all getting 'the drift' syndrome, may I point out that if you drift too far, with razor in hand, the result is a nasty and painful cut just where you didn't want one !
