Is brown the new black?

Tidying my underwear drawer the other day, I noticed that my erstwhile black underpants had over time turned a shade of brown. A question occurred to me: Why do men, and women who buy for their men, buy far more pairs of black underpants which eventually turn brown, than brown ones which presumably stay brown? Why not buy brown in the first place?

I am now going to drop my underpants.

Before I started using a laundromat, my white underwear turned brown after a few washings in my iron rich water. Is brown the true color of life? Are brown monk's robes the "correct" color? Do black (and white) represent instability? Should we aspire to all color or no color? ;>)
