Let's get this clear right now, because frankly the idea of a Netflix-like subscription service for underwear horrifies me like few other things can.

Manpacks isn't like Netflix because you're actually paying per item you get, rather than a flat monthly fee. It's more the PPV model. More importantly, and this is really the key point here, is that what I first feared it was (get a new pair of underwear, wear it, return it in the provided envelope, get another one) is not in fact what it is. You don't return the underwear to be worn by the next person for whom they were at the top of their queue.

And I think we can all agree to be happy about that.

Manpacks is very reminiscent of Amazon's "Subscribe and Save" thing for Grocery items. Not so reminiscent of Netflix.

You've got that right!

When I read about how they operate I thought the same thing.

Netflix for comic books? I'd say books, but we have the library. They have music too, but you can't "rent" cds.
I believe in Japan they have underwear machines.
