In a cul-de-sac in Malvern, one of the street's two dozen houses has been getting special deliveries to its door: stacks of skivvies. "I'd come home, and there would be piles of underwear on the front porch," Barbara Casey said. Casey started her drive for drawers last month for local children whose cash-strapped families must focus more on keeping them warm, housed, and fed than worrying about undergarments. Many people donate their previously worn clothes. But they leave out used underwear, which is not generally accepted because of sanitary concerns.

A man and a woman were found dead inside their Burlington County home Saturday morning, authorities said, and shortly afterward, a bloodied man wearing only his underwear was handcuffed and taken away by ambulance. A source familiar with the investigation said the man was a likely suspect in the killings. Neighbors who reported seeing the bloodied man said they also saw police escort a handcuffed woman out of the house and into a patrol car. The dead man and woman were found about 9 a.m. by a relative, who also lives in the twin home on the 200 block of Washington Street in Mount Holly, said Joel Bewley, a spokesman for the county Prosecutor's Office.

Whether it's plaid fingernails, a white-blonde reverse bob, or a sweatshirt emblazoned with the word kale , whatever Beyoncé dares to don, we feel we must, too.

Where's it come from? Although menswear-inspired fashion has trended in and out of style since the 1920s, undies were always rather gender specific.

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating my boyfriend, "Adam," for three years. Not too long after we started dating, Adam began staying over at my house on most weekends. I live with my mom, who is 47. For the past year when Adam comes to visit, my mom has been coming out of her bedroom in her bra and panties, for the most part exposed. She also makes flirtatious comments to Adam.

Never enough pockets in your pants or shirts? Well, what if your underwear got into the act? That's what you get with Clever Travel Companions, lightweight T-shirts, tanks, undershorts, and even long johns with zippered pockets big enough to fit a passport, credit cards, and cash. Made of cotton and cotton/spandex blends in a range of patterns and solid colors, the bottoms all have two pockets, the tops, one. Men's boxers and unisex long johns have a two-button fly, women's short shorts do not. Since they are undergarments, they protect against pickpockets, although retrieving your ID at the security line could be awkward.
