Ever wonder where your underwear came from?

Find out at the Minnesota History Center’s new Underwear: A Brief History exhibit. Here’s more, from MHS:

See the kinds of underpinnings worn by generations past, from 1920s flappers to 1970s modsters. The Minnesota Historical Society holds in its collection the business records, including product samples, of Munsingwear, Inc. View items from the collection including photos, advertisements and clothing like the union suit, women’s undergarments made by Vassarette, and men’s briefs with the “kangaroo pouch.”
