Hanky Panky, one of those underwear brands whose fans are diehard and whose name is instantly recognizable, is entirely Made in the USA. The folks over at Lucky (who fall in the diehard category) realized that and then took a field trip to the Hanky Panky factory in Queens, NYC to find out exactly how those lacy little numbers are made. From cutting fabric to custom bedazzling, this behind the scenes step-by-step shows everything that goes into covering(ish) your behind. [Lucky]
