Lidl has clarified a typo in its newsletter, which confused 'men's work trousers' with something very different.

The discount supermarket featured its new 'bare necessities' range in its newsletter, labelling women's underwear as 'men's work trousers'.

To avoid any workplace mishaps, the German chain posted a clarification to Twitter on Thursday.

"Dear men of Ireland," reads the post.

"We would like to confirm that this was a typo in our newsletter, please DO NOT go to work in just these. Thanks, Lidl."

The message garnered plenty of attention online, with commenters saying that they had already worn the underwear to work.

The team running the Twitter account are taking the mix-up in their stride, responding with memes and GIFs.
