Migros Budget underwear: cult status?

I was informed by a group of Swiss last week that Migros Budget underwear has achieved cult status. I've never bought them but hate missing out on being a fashion victim.

What is your experience? Are they worth it? Are they green striped? Are they as long lasting as the other stuff? Do they get holes quicker?

Thanks for your input

Re: Migros Budget underwear: cult status?

if something has "achieved" cult status, it means:

- the person who wears it has no own style.
- by labelling something as cult, real cult dissapears in seconds.

real cult status, is never known as cult. (freitag bags, migros budget, ....)
only cult to the dumb mass of consumers.

if you bought them because you like them, then i think it's fine.
if you bought them just because you heard that they are "cult"..... naah.

just my opinion.

Migros Budget bikini
Wow, I never thought this was possible! I've been trying for ever to get one of those SALE tees from one of the highstreet shops in a number of countries -- but this, this is over the top!

BTW, what is 'cult'?

Re: Migros Budget underwear: cult status?

Major snob here: The Migros Budget line time is over. It was top of chic 10 years ago among gay fashion "precurseurs". With "jet lag" for the greater public, it means the chicness is now dying out. It will survive in the main stream for a while and will soon be cool in primary school court yards. It's now a follower item or integrated as part of a patchwork style, a piece of local history if you will.

Re: Migros Budget underwear: cult status?

Before we moved here 2 years ago (from UK)- friends from CH bought me a Migros Budget mobile, so they could get in touch cheaper whenever I was visiting CH. Still the very proud owner, lol. Reverse snobism? lol

Re: Migros Budget underwear: cult status?

slightly off-topic, sorry...

if you DO NEED (...) to wear something with cult label, try to get one of these:



it is a skiing cap, given out from SKA (schweizerische kreditanstanstalt, today known as credit suisse) for free between the late 70's and early 1980's.

You hate missing out on being a fashion victim??? Are you serious?

Go have a look, if you like them, buy them. Why buy things only because others do that?
