Mancs strip for Slaters

Last week 50 men and one woman stripped down to their undies to mark the opening of the new Slaters Menswear branch in Manchester.

Mancs strip for Slaters

If you happened to be walking down Brown Street last Wednesday lunchtime and noticed that everyone around you seemed to be in their underwear, you may have thought that you were going a little cuckoo.

But no, the scantily clad crowds weren’t the result of some weird underpants society meeting. Neither were they a hallucination. They were there to mark the opening of Slaters menswear store on Manchester’s Brown Street, for which 50 men and one woman braved the November weather and stripped down to their undies.

Eamonn Holmes and Paul Slater cut the tape

“But why would they do such a crazy thing?” You might well ask. Well, every person that stripped down at the opening last week received a free Slaters suit. Was it worth it? Judging from these pictures they all seem happy enough, especially the sinister looking fella stood to the left of the girl. Pleased to see her? I think so.

Slaters fan Eamonn Holmes was there to officially open the store with Paul Slater, cutting an oversized tape measure and a cake. Thankfully for everyone involved Eamonn decided against stripping down to his underpants and remained fully clothed throughout.
