This enterprise would sell socks and underwear in a package (same size and shape as a 12 oz. soft drink) that fits drink vending machines to allow versatility to vendors.

edit: Unlike those sold in Japan, these would be fresh and new and marketed to the normal consumer for actual use as every-day undergarments.

Edit 2: While I agree there exist vending machines that dispense socks this idea is for a container be made to allow such items t<o conveniently fit in commonly existing vending machines.

Edit 3: you probably all know this already but for the odd man out: I wouldn't recommend googling underwear vending.

       Howabout two tall cans with an articulated section in the middle, and they could just be worn as socks? Useful for forgetful knights or fire ant areas.

       I want the socks, underwear, and white t-shirt stacked in a tennis ball can, with the gurantee of sterility, and I want the satisfying whishh when you open it. I would pay $10 US for this.

       you sound like an advert for a washing powder.

       Years ago when I was at college, I can remember my girl friend buying sexy knickers in a can, and having me open it. Nice surprise.

       Do you think that the places that put product inside these types of container should have an inspirational poster outside their premises, stating “Yes, we can!”.

       If the poster said "No, we can'!" would that be cantankerous?

       Do people really soil themselves that often?

       No, but they will.
