THE BRITISH ANTHEM: A MATTER OF FRENCH UNDERWEAR

In Versailles, Louis XIV had the best craftsmen in France create his short-trousers. They were majestic, puffed-out at the waist and fastened at the calves and, at that time, it was the height of aesthetics. However, this illustrious monarch wasn’t a visionary. Indeed, there was a wound on his royal bottom that extended and became infected because of the rubbing of his short-trousers. That is the reason why the official surgeon was called to do the “Big Surgery” that was much talked about at that time.

After long hours of uncertainty, the Frenchman J.B Lully composed “Dieu sauve le Roy” (God save the King) to celebrate the recovery of the Sun King. However, as the festivities were getting organised and many people were singing, an Englishman passing through France decided to export this song, that later became the British anthem: “God save the Queen”. True Story.

Despite this misfortune that happened more than 300 years ago, French boxer shorts remain references in comfort and aesthetics. Here is a little selection:
