Jockstrap on the cheap


i was thinking since its almost school time people will be playing sports so that means keeping your junk safe, so a jockstrap is needed.
i was looking around online and they run anywhere from 2 dollars for a cheap one on ebay to 40 dollars if you want a "fashion" one.
so i was thinking why not make my own for a cheap budget.
for a athletic cheap jockstrap you can buy just 1 at kmart or walmart for about 10 dollars, or go to kmart and (this sounds weird) but buy mens thongs. buy one size bigger than you need,

once you have the patterns you want for them, go home and break out your sharpest knife, and break out the cutting board

first step is to separate the band from the back strap so cut it about a quarter of an inch under the main band so that you can sew it back up and make it a straight line

once you have it spereated go ahead and start to cut the middle of the strap about half way but dont cut into much of the pouch or else it wont do any good for support.

there is no exact place to put the 2 straps but they should be about half way to 3/4ths way on the band from where they were located previously

all you have to do is sew it in the place you want but make sure you place them in as close the same spot on both sides or it will be useless and uncomfortable.

once you have them connected take the bottom where you cut the straps appart and sew the end of the cut so it doesnt seperate more as you use it
a simple back and forth sew will do it

trim all the excess string off and go and be happy that you now have safe junk


*i dont take responsability if you mess up or hurt yourself doing this or with the final product, i made mine and fits fine. use common sense and dont force it to work or you may harm your body*

I'm not sure that a cheap thong would be robust enough to hold my spuds, but it's still interesting.

well thats why you make the straps where you want it so it supports you to your liking
because personally i dont want to spend 70 bucks to have one for every day so i got a 4 pack of them
haha
and thongs are really supported as it is but the cheek straps of a jock are more comfy for running and stuff
