The Intersection of Math and Underwear

Presh Talwalkar, who by his own admission "likes to over-analyze decisions," mixes math with common sense in this post on the number of pairs of underwear one ought own ;-) :

(His computational answer is "20," but he neglects to address the equally important question: the ratio of boxers to briefs?...)

And for the more mathematically, less fashion-inclined folks among you, Presh's prior post is a probability puzzle/conundrum for which he will be posting the answer tomorrow:
