1940s Men's Underwear: Briefs, Boxers, Unions, & Socks
During a cold winter, men might throw on a ‘union suit’ underneath their clothes. This was simple long underwear. The ‘40s version was very fitted with buttons down the front. The legs reached down to the ankles with long or short-sleeves. These were usually white ribbed cotton with a high crew neck. Short leg varieties with short or tank top sleeves were an alternative to just undershorts in spring or autumn weather.
