All right.. time for a random assignment! ;)

In attempts to find our most popular common brand, and country that made them.. I need each of you to do the following:

Grab:

3 pieces of underwear ( Bras, boxers, panties, thongs, etcetera)

3 pairs of pants, any kind

3 sweaters

3 tshirts/tanktops/muscletees, etc.


Right down the brand, and country they were made in...

And I will compile a list! Try to get different brands on each.

Oh, and if you just respond with (First POST!) Your first post doesn't count unless you did this first. ;)

All right. MIne!
