Robert Pattinson Inspires New Underwear Line

As if Twilight fans needed another reason to get giddy about Robert Pattinson, Guardian reports that British retailer Marks and Spencer has announced that they are creating a men’s underwear line inspired by the sexy star. Aptly called the R-Pant, the vampire-inspired slim-fit underwear collection of low-rise briefs and trunks is meant to be worn under skinny jeans like those sported by Katy Perry‘s funny man Russell Brand and, of course, Pattinson himself. And while the 24-year-old Twilight hottie will not be appearing in an ad campaign for the retailer (nor is he apparently endorsing the line), the Guardian reports that the actor has been spotted shopping for underwear at the store. With fellow vampire Kellan Lutz fronting Calvin Klein underwear, we’re wondering just how much the R-Pant collection will be able to sex up Marks and Spencer’s underwear department. Looks like we’ll have to wait until September, when the new range goes on sale, to see! –Jessie Goldberg

Cool! Too bad he won’t be in their advertisements. He seems to not be much into the endorsing thing.

… Robert should be paid for this. Marks and Spencer is openly using his name to market their underwears, so it should be fair enough that he should be getting a slice of the revenue.

Robert should be paid for this! Enough is enough! Just think about it twihards!

Agreed! The article had mentioned that the R-pant was inspired by Robert Pattinson, but not actually endorsing nor at any circumstaces involve with it. Moreover, the obvious target are the millions of fans of the burgeoning Twilight franchise. Can you imagine how much this underwear can pull in, because of R-Patz’s name plastered all over the product? It could shatter the company’s revenue record.. Is M&S disregarding their moral obligation towards Pattinson?

Its just an opinion from a fan.
