NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Some people will do anything to get free clothes, and that includes lining up on a SoHo street wearing nothing but their underwear.

Desigual, a Barcelona-based clothing store locatedĀ at 594 Broadway, will give the first 100 nearly-naked New Yorkers free outfits Thursday morning and everyone else on line will get a half-off voucher.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS’ John Montone reports (and tries not to feel creepy)

Nearly 550 people RSVP’d to the Undie Party on Facebook and the store was expecting to get a lot of NYU students looking for some back-to-school threads.

Men and women began lining up, stripped down to their skivvies, hours before the store was scheduled to open at 10 a.m.

“We’re getting naked!,” participant Maya told 1010 WINS’ John Montone.

“I am currently wearing my favorite bra and panties,” one woman said.

Montone asked one man to describe his attire: “Bare and minimal, just how my mother birthed me,” the man said.

If you’re brave enough to stand around in your underwear in Midtown, where you’ll probably get gawked at by commuters, Desigual will hold another Undie Party at their Herald Square location on Sept. 28.
