A newcomer in the underwear scene

Greetings underwear fans. I hope you all had a very merry christmas with stockings filled with undies. I just wanted to make a quick blog about a newcomer in the underwear scene. This is a new online store called Woody's Underwear Drawer. They are still in the growing process but they currently have many popular brands in stock for very reasonable prices (some of the lowest that I have seen!). Some brands that they sell are Ginch Gonch, Go Software, Calvin Klein, C-IN2 and Unico (among others). On top of their really low prices you can get a 10% discount on your entire purchase just for reading about them on this blog. All you gotta do is enter the coupon code "fetish". So head on over to Woody's if you're in search of a way to spend all that x-mas money, or want to give someone a late gift, or just want to buy yourself something nice. I'm sure you'll find something to buy.

Question:
Did you get or give any underwear this Holiday season? If so please explain in detail.

Long Johns


It's that time of year again. Yup you guessed it. It's winter and it's time to pull on your long underwear. But this year instead of dragging out those old union suits like your grandpa used to wear why not treat yourself with some new and improved winter underwear. The men's underwear world has gone through some major innovations recently, and some of those innovations allow you to have warm underwear that still maintains style and doesn't have a lot of bulk to it. So go out and buy yourself some "modernized" long underwear. They can range from 20 to 40 dollars. They are seriously a good investment, especially if you live anywhere where there are white christmases. So treat yourself to some in-style long johns this year and go out and buy a few.
Here's a couple to check out first:
  • C-IN2
  • Unico
  • Hugo Boss
  • 2(x)ist


  • Question of the Day:
    Do you wear long underwear in the winter or do you just wear the same things that you wear the rest of the year.

    Balls in One Erector Brief


    Something that is often debated among underwear fans is whether to point the penis up or down inside tight fitting underwear. With these new and popular briefs you don't have to decide. They decide for you. "Designed to fit a man’s anatomy perfectly with a cool mesh pouch for your sack and a vertical, tubular compartment that holds your shaft in an erect position. Made from a soft, moisture-wicking blend of spun polyester and nylon, this erector brief provides unparalleled comfort and a unique wearing experience.: (IJ) Not only that but this distinct design will hide all your erections and will hold your thing in place all day. They are manufactured by King Style exclusively for International Jock. Therefore you can only get them at International Jock. They are proving to be very popular and have been out of stock for quite a while. But now they are back in stock and are for sale for $19.95. You should check out this cool new technology.

    iBoxer


    iPods are one of the most successful gadgets of all time. Apple has made millions of dollars off of these handheld electronics. Many companies have decided to capitalize off this success by making all sorts of clothing and accessories for this new trend. The trend has now expanded to your underwear. Yes that's right, I'm not kidding. Now these iBoxers by Play come with a pocket designed specifically for your iPod listening pleasure (although you could use the pocket for any number of small electronics as well). I think this is a very fun and novel idea. I'm not sure how practical it is but it would be a great holiday gift (even if just as a gag) for any gadget lover in your life. I like the fact that although these are boxers they are still very fitted (but not quite boxerbriefs) to avoid the bagginess that is often associated with boxers. They can be purchased for twenty-two dollars here. Enjoy.

    Poll of the day:
    When and how would you use this pocket (if you would at all)?

    C-IN2


    Sorry I haven't blogged lately. But I've been gathering up lots of information for you on cool new underwear related things and trends to get you or a friend for this holiday season. One thing that has been catching my eye over and over again lately is the new line of men's underwear, C-IN2. This fairly new brand was co-founded by the creator of 2(x)ist. Even though it is a new line it has been getting many rave reviews from fans in the underwear community. I'd suggest that you look into this new line of products. Lots of the undies in this line offer what is called "sling support technology"-think breast enhancers for the male part. This is achieved with an adjustable ½ wide elastic sling inside the pouch that forms a ring around your scrotum and penis which lifts them forward. On top of this great new idea C-IN2's line of underwear also boasts soft cotton material, low rise, and sporty cuts and designs. I really suggest that you go and check out this great new brand. Freshpair offers a great selection of the line here. This great new line also offers every style for every type of guy; from jocks to briefs, to boxerbriefs, to boxers, to longjohns, C-IN2 offers it all with lots of comfort and style. So what're you waiting for? Go check it out.

    American Apparel


    Sorry I haven't blogged in such a long time. I've just been really busy. I really don't even have time to be writing this post, but I am. So here it is. American Apparel is a source that quite a few of my readers have been telling me to write about for a long time. So here I am writing about it. Also many (and not just the ones that posted comments) readers have told me that they are a better alternative to aussiebum (they say that they are cheaper and nicer). I personally have not tried these briefs out for myself but since so many people seem to be raving about them I thought that I'd mention them, because with that many fans they got to be good. American Apparel seems to only make one style of underwear, the "baby rib brief". Here's what they say about them: "Our version of the traditional brief in untraditional colors. Baby rib cotton body; Baby rib cotton leg openings; Fine jersey front panel binding; Elastic waistband" They sound pretty nice and all for just 12 bucks. I suggest you try them out (I know I'm going to). And not only that but if you really dig them they come in 22 colors so you can always have a brief that will match whatever you happen to be wearing. I must say I'm pretty impressed, not just by the price but by how nice they look and what a wide variety of colors they are offered in. These are not your classic colors, they are some cool colors so check them out!

    I've got pockets in my underpants!



    That's right. I got pockets in my underpants and you can too. These seriously are real underpants, they are not really tight pants. I repeat these are real underpants. I saw these and I thought they were pretty cool so I just couldn't resist blogging about them. These sweet manties with pockets are made by a japanese men's clothing company called TOOT. TOOT makes tons of cool and unique clothes for guys, including these boxerbriefs with pockets. These boxerbriefs run around $30 bucks US (at current conversion) and can be found here. I just thought these were pretty cool so I decided to share them. I don't think the pockets could really be too useful but they make a cool statement. They are shown in grey but they also come in charcoal. I like the grey one the best because of the contrast between the navy and grey and the red waistband. These undies have no fly. Below are some other views. As you can see from the front they look like pretty normal undies but once your friends see the back they will always think of you as one of the most fashionable people around.

    Question of the Day:
    Would you use pockets in your underwear or would you just have them as a fashion statement? If you'd use them what would you use them for?

    Undershirts that match

    It's been the big thing in female undies to have matching bras and panties/thongs. So why can't men do the same? Well they can. Just slightly modified for the male physique. You can now find that many upscale brands make undershirts that go with briefs, boxerbriefs and boxers. Basically you can buy a 4 in 1 set that comes with three 7 different combinations of wear (each different bottom with top, each bottom without top, and top without bottom (if you're daring) ). This particular set which I am featuring is only a brief and a tank. But as you can see there are two combos. With (right), and without shirt (left).


    Ok well there's technically three but I'm not going to show the without the briefs version because the site didn't either;)

    Anyways these are sets. They match but they're a little more than matching. For instance if you were to wear a pair of white briefs with a white A-Shirt that would technically "match". But it doesn't really MATCH. If you get what I'm saying. Anyways this set can be found at Undergear.com. The tank can be found here for $25. And the brief can be found here for $17. Both the brief and the tank come in four colors (red, yellow, blue, and black) to suit your personality, style, and mood.

    Poll of the Day:
    Do you think about what underwear you wear or do you just grab whatever is clean? In other words do you try to match your underwear with your outfit and other undies or do you just pull anything on? Or is it a mix? Explain.

    Super Briefs!



    A new trend that we are seeing in men's underwear is novelty briefs and boxerbriefs. For a long time such things were only available as boxers and boys briefs. Now you can actually find men's character-like briefs. These briefs are pretty cool. Snaps to the manufacture for finally figuring out that men want to have fun undies too. These undies harken back to super heros with the Super Man insignia prominently placed on your bulge. But they also harken back to the tight clothing that super heros wear along with that little brief around the crotch area (it still is unclear to me why super heros dress that way (maybe they just wanted to show off their undies and/or package) ). This boxerbrief (above) especially reminds me of that type of outfit because of the way the legs are different color so it looks like the wearer is wearing briefs over boxerbriefs or tights. The boxerbriefs can be purchased here at DUGG for $14.41. They are also available in coloration of Boxerbrief as well as a Brief (both pictured below).



    Poll of the Day:
    Do you prefer to wear regular plain colored underwear or fun cartoony underwear?

    Think Pink!



    The in thing in men's fashion for a while has been the color pink. It's very hot and stylish right now. Just when I thought it couldn't go anywhere else it did. Now pink has expanded to everywhere in a man's wardrobe, even down to his underpants. Aussiebum just unleashed their new color of briefs, pink. Aussiebum has been a cutting-edge brand in men's underwear for a while and now they have gone and shown the world that pink undies is not just for little girls anymore. Click here for purchasing info (I hope the link works).

    The only question left now is are you man enough to wear them?

    Fun new things

    Hey,
    As you may notice I've done a few new things to the blog. First off there's a favicon of a pair of briefs that I've put on. Also I use the same image by the titles of all the posts. As you may notice removed the clock (because it only said my time and didn't benefit most of you) and replaced it with a image gallery. Currently there are just a few clipart images of underwear in it. They will randomly change every time you visit the page so if you reload the page you'll get a new image. Let me know what you think of all these new features and give me some suggestions for more. If you have any images to add to the little gallery send them to my e-mail (listed in the sidebar). Hope you like it.

    National Underwear Day

    Photo courtesy of Fresh Pair.com.
    "National Underwear Day is a time to share the wonder of undies, and celebrate what lies beneath. Leaders in the underwear industry have come together to help the founder of National Underwear Day, Freshpair.com, celebrate the event on August 10. (See www.nationalunderwearday.com.) Underwear-clad models will be placed throughout Midtown Manhattan with clipboards to poll passers-by on their preference of underwear, and collect signatures for official recognition of the day. C-IN2, a new men’s underwear brand, will have mobile changing stations set up through New York City. Free underwear, including some of our top-selling item, the C-IN2 sling, will be given to those willing to try it on. This product is unique to say the least, and was recently featured in Newsweek as the “wonderbrief.” (See www.freshpair.com.). 2(x)ist will have its own mobile unit, teaming up with the National Prostate Cancer Coalition to offer information on prostate cancer, and free underwear to anyone who pledges to have a cancer screening. Other industry sponsors include: RIPS, Natori, Le Mystere, Rago, Ginch Gonch, Male Power, Hugo Boss, Unico and Maidenform."
    -Freshpair.com

    For more info go to freshpair.com.

    Wow, sounds like lots of fun. You get to party around New York in your undies. And hey, you can even get some free undies. Unfortunately this is only good if you live in New York (which I don't :( ). But hopefully enough signatures will be collected so it can become an official National holiday. So if you love undies and live in New York be sure not to miss out on the opportunity to spend a day parading in your underwear and getting free new undies. Remember it is on August 10th, so that's coming up really soon. If you don't live in New York you can still participate by adding your signature to the ever-growing list by clicking here. Also you can check out more photos from last year's event by going to my Flickr set here. So all in all it looks like it's going to be a great time for all new yorkers. I really wish I lived in New York at the moment (mainly for the chance to get some free undies, but also to parade around in them too) but alas, I do not. So if any of you are going to New York for the celebrations pick me up a pair of undies, if you have a chance (my waist is somewhere around 28). Thanks.

    As previously mentioned, Hanes ARE in again!

    So sorry not to have blogged in a while. Today I am going to share with you something I saw. I really wish I had a photo, but I don't so I will describe what I saw. Yesterday I was driving along in the passengers seat of the car when I saw a bike rider ahead of us. The rider was a guy and looked like he was very in on style and a bit obsessed with it too. Anyways he had blonde hair and was wearing a blue tank top under a black sweater like tank top. He was wearing white pants (I think that's what they were I can't really remember that part). And he had on a backpack. The rider was sagging such that a bit of skin could be seen between the bottom of his blue tank and his pants. Besides the skin he had the entire waistband of his Hanes briefs as well as about an inch and a half of the purple fabric that covered his ass clearly showing to all onlookers. It was quite a statement. And I must say it looked really good. This just goes to show that not only are Hanes decent again, but they are also very in and trendy as well.

    Fraternities

    I didn't join a frat when I went to college. The idea that you had to conform to a norm set by others before you who just wants to humiliate you didn't appeal to me. I did for a short moment in time, for about a week, considered joining a military academy, the Citadel of all places.

    Coming across these underwear brought to mind thoughts of fraternity and what it was like to be part of a team, for me it was a Fencing team. It would have been pretty damn cool for my team to have our team badge on one of these jocks. For guys who are associated with army, navy, police, or FD, they can wear one of these proudly. The emblems and patches are somewhat generic but distinctly identifiable with their fraternity. The colors offered are quite nice. I secretly would like to be a part of the armed services just for the priviledge of wearing one. These aren't officially part of any uniform, so those of you who are secretly pinning to be in the club can play the role.


    If you are just into the fashion, these CCCP logo'd ones are fab, and soon to be collectibles. ...maybe not.

    The Patriot

    What imageries come to mind when you think of fourth of July? Backyard Barbecue, parades, and of course the 'stars and stripes.' Every porch in America will have the USA flag waving in the wind on July 4th. You must be wondering what the connection is between underwear and the American flag.
    Well, I'm not suggesting you wrap your tush with the Old Glory, that is sacrilegious in the highest order, but you can show off or hide your patriotism by getting your hands or more appropriately your bottom in one of these patriotic underwear. These come in all styles and by a variety of manufacturers.

    Even the fashion designer Tommy Hillfiger has put out a couple of very tasteful renditions just in time for our nation's celebration. So get your butt in under-gear and don you red-white-blue. I will strut a pair of my own on this glorious holiday.

    Undergear Swimsuits


    Well, it's summer. For a lot of us, that means swimming is going to be a popular activity for the next few months. So I've checked out many different sites to find a new swimsuit, but it appears that undergear.com has what I'm looking for. They've got it all: from the boring everyday trunks to squarecuts and thongs. And I really wish I knew how to add a picture (but as I said before I'm not very good with computers), but you'll just have to remember these ones, and go to the site and check them out. [EDIT: Blue added a photo]

    I'm specifically into the bikini/brief style swimwear. I think the Surfscape Bikini looks kinda cool, although I'm not sure if I'd want a picture of a surfer on my butt. Anyways you have to check out at least their whole selection of bikini swimwear, then check out whatever you want. I wish bikini swimwear was popular in the U.S. so that we wouldn't be put down all the time for what we wear, but that's life.

    Question: Do you swim with underwear underneath your swimsuit? What kind (briefs, boxers, etc.)?

    Monday, June 27, 2005

    Back!

    I forgot to tell everyone that I was on vacation (or maybe I didn't, I can't remember). But I'm back and will start posting again in a day or two, I don't have the time right now.

    boxerelegance

    FROM BLUE: This article was sent to me by e-mail by a reader. He has requested that his name be withheld.

    "Being a sagger isn't always easy. If you ask a sagger why they show their boxers, I bet most of them would say they don't know, or were even not aware that they were showing them particularly, just that its how they dress. Just walking down the street showing boxers immediately labels you in terms of how you are perceived by the viewer. Depending on the depth of the sag and the clothing chosen, as well as personal appearance, you may viewed alternately as a disgusting, slovenly slacker with no social morality, or the coolest guy on the face of the planet. Let's face it, some guys can carry off a deep sag and wear it brilliantly, others are best left not trying it. Alot depends on the boxers you choose. This in mind, and armed with the knowledge that boxers are but one tool in a male's arsenal of clothing, we can devise a way to use boxers to their fullest advantage by coordinating them with other pieces of clothing for maximum effect.
    The image above illustrates a guy who has used his brain to use boxers very well. Let's examine further. The use of blue jeans is good one. Blue jeans have the casual look yet are easily accessorized with any number of fashionable belts. The range of jeans available today is almost unending, and guys who intentionally wear jeans low will find jeans available with lower pockets and lower seams so that the functions of the jeans are still accessible even under a long shirt. The belt is simple and elegant with a center of focus. All too often, a good sag is completely ruined or lost by the use of overly studded belts or other detracting additions. Someone who wears overpowering belts or other heavy accessories probably has their own reasons for doing so. If you asked them why they do it, this time you would probably get an answer and it might not be very nice. Certainly it would have little to do with boxers or sagging. In our example above, the belt is used jointly with the right pair of jeans to hold the jeans in the place the wearer wishes but also allowing the guy to casually put his hands in the pockets and push the jeans lower should this be wanted. The new position would then also be held in place by the belt.
    In this example, the guy has chosen a long white sleeveless shirt, called a wife-beater colloquially. This has many advantages. It is very light material, so it is very suitable for being outside in hot weather. Its long, so you can have low jeans but still have some of the boxers covered. Its thin, so that his curves and muscles may be seen by those who care to, while still being under cover to those who don't care to. Thin material also lets people who are interested see through it to see how much of the boxers are under fabric, perhaps what brand they are or style, without them being truly on display. This gives the illusion of the boxers being showed maybe 1/4 when in fact the jeans may actually be sitting at 1/2 or more. If the guy found himself in a situation such as the beach, or skateboard park, somewhere among friends or where entertainment is more tolerated, he could easily remove the shirt and put it in his pocket and carry off a fairly nice belted sag complimented with a physique that will draw people to look at it. If he returned to something more controlled, such as shopping in a mall, the shirt can be easily reworn. He has a necklace in keeping with current style, and his hats are all multifunctional. The skull cap for skating and the ball cap on top for hanging out. In fact the two together is something I have not seen before, but to me it just makes him look versatile and sporty. I am drawn to think he might be a skater, even with no board shown. The boxers themselves are of a simple pattern and masculine color. We cannot see if there is a lettered waistband from this image, however if there was a passerby could notice it through the shirt fabric. The absence of a noticeable waistband does not label him a fashion nobody. Instead, it simply reaffirms that a person can look great and socially in reason at all times using boxers without necessarily spending a lot of money on a designer pair and by using common articles of clothing any male is likely to have or can obtain cheaply. This example is socially within reason. This person could walk into nearly any social situation and be appropriately dressed with the versatility to adjust further if need be. His appearance is neat and clean, not slovenly or unkempt. Although I would never suggest someone become something they are not just for appearance sake, I do think it is important to realize how powerful a tool boxers are and that used correctly this power can serve one well."

    Believe it or not... Hanes are actually decent again!

    I'm a "dept. store" kind of guy. I buy all my clothes at local retailers. Which means that I sometimes have to go as far as 10 miles to get to nearest Kohls so I can get a pack of Jockey underwear. So I thought, for a change, I would buy some Hanes fashion boxer-briefs.

    If you've ever worn Hanes before, you probably thought they were just crap. And they used to be, with their briefs stretching out so far that you'd be able to wear them if you gained 50 pounds. Let me tell you, these are much, much better.

    Since I'm technically challenged, here's how to get to the picture of the underwear I am talking about. Go to hanes.com, then click on Men, then Underwear. Scroll down a ways, and you'll see Hanes Ribbed Boxer Briefs.

    Now I don't really care much for the "ribbed" style, but that doesn't bother me much.

    You can get a pack of four of these for about $8-$10. They are very comfortable to lounge around in, or whatever you're doing.

    Some other Hanes products I've tried include their low-rise and bikini briefs. The low-rise are only different because they dont form an upside down U on both sides, they just kind of diagonally rise up and then there's the back side. The low-rise are a bit too tight and your stuff gets no room at all. But then again I have a 31 waist, and I bought these at 28-30's because at that time I was borderline 30-31. The bikini briefs are, if anything else, more comfortable and revealing. In my opinion, I wouldn't want to be wearing Hanes bikini briefs... there are better brands out there.

    So there you have it, Hanes is back and actually doing a decent job!

    Question: Do you walk around your house in your underwear? What kind of underwear, and do you wear anything else with it (such as a t-shirt)?

    Friday, June 17, 2005

    Standing up for what you believe in!

    This post is on behalf of a lot of people, and I'm guessing it's a bit different than what anyone expected for my first post. A lot of guys have the same problem as they go through high school or college: They just don't have the confidence to wear what they want to.

    So what am I trying to say? Many people are wearing boxers when they don't even want to. They'd rather be wearing something else such as the many varieties of underwear shown on this site. So here are a few tips to help you stand up for what you believe in.

    Just wear it! I was nervous this year too as I would wear my briefs (and later in the year, my low-rise briefs) to gym class. The truth is, nobody should be looking at you change anyway! If they do comment, tell them you aren't afraid to wear what's comfortable rather than what "the trend" is. Also, you can wear a slightly longer t-shirt to cover up your undies if you're afraid of others seeing them. Change your pants first, and then switch the shirt. This should prevent anyone from seeing what you wear. A final suggestion (And my least favorite idea) is to wear boxers over the underwear you want to wear. I would only recommend this if you wear something like a thong. Otherwise don't be afraid to show it off!

    So, the point of this message? Wear what you want to. Don't be afraid of what others say. You're brave enough to wear what you want to unlike the rest of them. I honestly think that if we all wore what we wanted to, there wouldn't be many people wearing boxers at all.

    Question: What specific underwear is your favorite? Give the brand name, the style, etc.

    Welcome Snipy!

    Hello everyone. We have a new posting member. Yup that's snipy. You can find his e-mail in the sidebar along with mine and Torrent's e-mail addresses. Please give him a warm welcome. We're all looking forward to your first post! :)

    DTJocks brief

    DT Jocks is a fairly new brand that makes really stylish briefs and boxer briefs. I personally think they are cool and they might actually make me wear some briefs (*hint hint* I wear small if anyone wants to buy me some). I don't know if they'd actually fit me because the pouches on briefs in my waistsize are never big enough for me (not to brag but it's just true). But hey I'd try these. They have a really unique looking front. And they're low-rise and nice and out of sight. Briefs seem to be becoming popular again along with boxer briefs (I'll talk about that another day). I guess guys just really like having support and such. I thought that these were just really unique because they're low-rise and low-cut, in fact here's the quote from their website about them: "The DT Jocks label was established in Australia July 2003. DT Jocks are classically styled men's briefs with a modern twist. DT Jocks low-rise + boxer briefs feature……

    100% Cotton.
    Functional fly opening.
    Box cut…..short through the crotch and wide through the side.
    Unique colours, designs, patterns and prints.
    Accurate sizing.
    Quality, comfort and style."

    So they basically have a really cool looking, but functioning fly. A really unique cut in the crotch and low rise so they don't show above your pants. But with briefs like these you'll be eager to get your pants off and show them off. In fact I think these just might work for me. You can find them online at DTJocks.com

    Poll of the day:
    How supportive do you like your underwear and does the support preference vary depending on what you're doing?

    Public Display of Underwear

    I think about underwear way too often. Take for example my driving down the street, and questioning what the guy at the bus stop is wearing underneath his slacks. I'm not interested in the guy, or getting into his pants, I'm just really curious about underwear.

    So when I had the opportunity to take public transportation recently, I was staring at crotches and asses looking for "panty" lines. Though that doesn't sound right for men. And if I couldn't see anything, I'd glance at the whole person and try to figure out their style.

    I'd doubt it works, but it's rather funny to picture some guys in tight bikinis.

    Men's Underwear Brands

    Today, I'd like to talk about brand loyalty. I've worn, (off the top of my head), Jockey, Jake & Co., Sonoma, Canyon River Blues, Undergear, Arrow, Hanes, FTL, 2(x)ist, Gap, Old Navy, and Polo Ralph Lauren. 12 brands and only 5 styles (boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, bikinis, and thongs). That's not a great track record with one brand, if you ask me. This is odd considering I buy all my music in the same store, all my Chinese food at a certain restaurant, all my haircuts at a certain barber (with a certain stylist), amongst other things.

    I think that one of the main reasons that there isn't a whole lot of innovation in underwear by the standard department store brands is because there probably IS brand loyalty in underwear. Once you've found the right pair, wouldn't you buy it over and over again? I guess I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

    Where is your loyalty? Do you have a "favorite" pair? Is your favorite pair also your "lucky" pair?

    Ginch Gonch

    Hey, I've mentioned this before but I'm gonna mention it again. I have noticed that there seems to be an increasing popularity in older guys wearing boys briefs. I don't know maybe they want to keep in touch with their childhood by wearing their favorite cartoon or character briefs. Whatever their reasoning the fact still remains, although we may want to do something we may grow. Yes I do mean what i said. You probably have grown since the time when you were wearing cartoon briefs and thus probably won't fit in boys briefs, unless of course you are small or like wearing really tight undies. But don't worry because now there is a company that makes fun undies for men. The company is called Ginch Gonch. Pictured are some fun briefs. They call them their firetruck briefs and put a racy description to them "Every man comes equipped with a hose. Tame the flame with fire trucks". I think it's pretty funny. Visit their site. Caution the flash site has some nudity. So now for all you guys out their who want to get in touch with your childhood through your undies now is your chance. Check out Ginch Gonch, but beware of sticker-shock (27 bucks a brief)!

    Bodysuits caught my eye.

    Torrent here, with the first official post about underwear. Today, I'm reaching way back into Blue's archives and talking about bodysuits.

    Blue said,
    The only problem I could forsee with both of them is that if you sit down or something or it rides up the thong might get caught in your crack and give you a pretty nasty wedgie which would be pretty awkward to pick out.


    Well, Blue, thongs are SUPPOSED to give you a pretty nasty wedgie. If the material isn't wedged up in there pretty good, it wouldn't be a good thong!

    Here's a (blue) bodysuit that might work out better. I think I'd be more inclined to actually wear this around the house or sleep in than the thong bodysuit as I doubt a bodysuit gets too twisted like a t-shirt can.
    -------------------
    RESPONSE FROM BLUE:
    -------------------
    I totally underw..sry understand where you are coming from. But I personally don't like wandering around all day with a wedgie, that's why I wrote that caution. I totally understand that that is the point of thongs but they can still ride up and make an even larger, and uncomfortable, wedgie. Hope that explains it.

    Welcome Torrent!

    Well Torrent is already ahead of me in announcing our joining of blogs. But as you can guess we are now going to be writing blogs together. We will each be writing our own posts and publising them to our own blog and the other blog. Of course the blogs will still be different so you should check out mine here, as well as Torrents over at underweartalk.blogspot.com. This is gonna be pretty fun. It will be great. So enjoy and be sure to contact us with any comments by e-mail or by a comment. And if there's some undies that you are really digging, just send me an e with the reason(s) why you like them and we'll try to work a post in about them into our busy blogging schedule. That's all for now folks!

    Lending my support.

    Hey everybody. Call me Torrent. I'm going to be contributing to this blog for Blue, and Blue is going to be contributing to my blog over at, underweartalk.blogspot.com. I certainly hope we can entertain and inform in both places without too much double posting, but time will tell.

    I've gone back and read the archives here, and so should you. My first handful of posts will likely comment on Blue's previous posts, but I assure you I'll be posting some good, original stuff too.

    Any contributors?

    I've been having trouble lately finding the time to blog. I really do want to but I just don't have the time to post as much as I would like to. I was wondering if there are any fellow underwear lovers out there who would like to contribute to this blog so they could also add posts. Thus we could have a collaborative blog that would hopefully get at least one post a day. Let me know by e-mail (linked at bottom of page) if you are interested. If you already have a Blogger account I'll just add you. Or you could also let me know with a comment. Hope to hear from you people soon!

    Banana Boxers

    Yes I know most of you think that boxers are really boring but I think that these boxers may take the boredom out of the boxers for you. These are a fun and funky kind of boxers from Intimo. These boxers are pretty cool. They have a slit in the front instead of a fly and so you get a nice seamless look. Also as you can see they just have a banana peel printed on them so when you stick your dick through the fly it looks like the banana! I think that they're pretty cool. They just are really hilarious. They have a lot of comic relief. Imagine. You'd be laughing every time you take a piss. This particular style with the banana is no longer available on Intimo's site but there are many other one's that are this same style with just a different print.

    Gap briefs

    Ok so they're not exactly men's underwear but these are really cool. These are boys gap briefs. I saw these and thought that flames were just so cool. They make much cooler briefs for boys then they do for men. If men's briefs were as colorful and patterned as boys briefs then they wouldn't be labeled as so boring. Although they are boys and are a bit small who cares? The tight feel on one's package feels great and looks hot and gives great support. The waist is boys xxs-xxl which is about waist sizes 19"-32.5". That's not too small. It would just be snug and fitting. But no one will be able to tell because the waistband and seams are just the same as the adult versions (just the adult version don't have the cool designs). I just thought that these briefs were really cool looking and really hot (no pun intended). They come in 3 packs from GAP and are usually $12.50 for the three pack, currently they are on sale for $7.99 for the three (both prices are a great value, you can barely even get one men's brief for that price!). I suggest that if you like cool character, cartoon, colorful, or graphic briefs that you try out boys briefs. True they are pretty tight but they look great.

    Baskit Boxer-Briefs

    Sorry I haven't blogged in such a long time. Well here's an interesting developement in men's underwear. It comes from Baskit. These are Bakit boxer briefs made from 100% cotton. They have a mesh contour pouch, and a wide microfiber, elastic waistband with the words /baskit/ written on it. I really think that the contour pouch is really cool and is very unique to Baskit. Here is one of the coolest parts of this boxer brief. They have a built-in condom pouch inside so you'll always have protection with you no matter where you are. I think that that's pretty cool and handy. They are a little pricey though. At Bare Necessities they can be bought for $18.00.

    Today's Poll:
    Do you think that a condom pouch in underwear would be a really cool thing to have and very handy or do you just think that it's kinda gross?

    Thongs

    Thongs are becoming a huge trend in men's underwear. They aren't just for girls or strippers anymore. They can be, and are, worn by many guys as just regular day underwear. These thongs are made and designed for and with guys in mind, so they have a pouch on the front to give room to allow for the package. Thongs are basically just a waistband with a pouch attached on the front and a string that goes in the butt-crack on the back. They can come in a variety of styles, fabrics, designs, and sizes. Of course thongs aren't for all body types because they are very revealing and very small, you have to be fairly fit to look good in them. These particular thongs are made by Intimo. They have an Angel on the front with a red background. I believe they are meant for the holidays but really they can be worn any time for a bit of comic-relief. Who says that men can't have fun? But get this deal. Thongs are normally quite expensive, these are no exception. They are normally 12 bucks. But for some reason they are on clearance (probably out of season) so they only cost $5 at intimo.com!!!! That's an amazing deal so if you want one you better hurry up and get one quick.

    Gap boxer-brief trunks



    These are an interesting developement. They are really cool looking and have very stylish stripes. They are both the same in terms of style and fit. But the colors and cost are different. In terms of similarity they are both a trunk style boxer-brief that are fairly low rise and come up to around mid-calf. They have no fly which allows for a nice streamlined look. But it does have a pouch front to allow for the well-endowed. Also they both have a GAP logo waistband. One thing that I think is pretty cool is that these are one of the few brands of men's underwear out there that I've found that comes in sizes xs-xxl. That's a huge range. That basically means that it will fit waist sizes 26-45 or something close to that. The first picture shows the brand new style that just came out and costs $12.50 at Gap. It also comes in goldfish orange and grey (pictured is royal blue and grey). The second square-cut boxer-brief is currently sold-out at gap.com. I don't know if they have it in stores or not but I hope they do because I would like to purchase a pair. This is $6.99 at gap (when in stock of course) and is shown in aloe green, but also comes in bluestone.

    FINALly done.

    Ok so I am so sorry that I have blogged in awhile. As you may know I just finished up finals and then I got preoccupied with major speech tournaments. Anyways all that had me wearing my lucky underwear for quite a few days in a row (yellow plaid boxers with a black waistband.). But I am now available to blog. I am amazed at how many visitors I have gotten in such a short time to this blog. I am proud to announce that the counter has now gotten to about 450 in just a week and that this site is now part of all major searchengines, and some not so major search engines. But I guess you probably don't care because this blog is not about searchengines. It's about underwear. So I'm going to tell you about underwear. I am just going to share some of my recent underwear experiences with you. And then I will start blogging about certain kinds of undies in the next post. Anywho the other night I was dancing, long story. But long story short the dance involved a lot of jumping up and down. Anywho I was wearing boxers (bad plan) and by the end of it I ended up with them up to my navel and giving me a huge wedgie. So just some advice. DON'T wear boxers while dancing. Another thing that I find interesting is how absolutely no one at my school seems to wear adequete support or protection while doing athletic endeavors. All they seem to wear is boxer shorts. The most I've ever seen is compression shorts. I mean seriously haven't these guys ever heard of jockstraps? Maybe they should come here to find out about them ;) Seriously thought they probably won't learn until they get really hurt. Plus it's not very nice to have it bouncing around while you're running. Oh well. But I was wondering what you've noticed at your school or in lockerrooms you've been in. So that leads to the poll of the day.

    Poll of the day:
    What do you notice most guys wearing, in terms of underwear, in lockerrooms you've been in?

    No Underwear Week

    Well you could take this in a couple ways. You could think that I want you to go around commando (without underwear) for a week. But this is not what I mean. What I mean is I won't have time this coming up week to blog about underwear so I just wanted to give you a heads-up that I am not quitting I just don't have time. In the mean time comment on posts. Do the polls. Try out some new underwear. And e-mail me some suggestions about what to blog about when I get back. Thank you for underwe...sorry I get so used to typing underwear...understanding.

    Denim boxer-brief



    Here is a cool boxer-brief made by Unico(Unico's site is hard to navigate unless you speak spanish). It is made with a heathered wash to give it the look of denim but the nice softness of cotton. It also has some spandex in it for that nice fitted look. It has no fly and looks like it has a seperate penis pouch on the front. It also has a tab logo on it so it gives it that genuine blue jean look. It comes in heather, blue, sky, or red. Shown is sky. It has a logo waistband that says "XXX"(that's the line of Unico) on it. If you look at the second picture you can see that it is put together in a unique way and has different seams than normal underwear to help enhance the whole look. It is available on Amazon for $14.99. I think these are really nice. They give nice support and have a comfortable feel with a novelty denim look. The price is fairly good for the look. I would recommend these for all occasions.

    Boxer Briefs


    One of the new big things in men's underwear is boxer-briefs. For a long time the mainstream options have been just briefs and boxers. But now boxer-briefs is making a huge breakthrough as a nice compromise alternative. Boxer-briefs are for the man who likes the support of briefs and the cut of boxers. Many consider these boxer-briefs to be "the best of both worlds". Boxer-briefs are basically trunks with a bit longer legs. I am quite fond of boxer-briefs and like all the different options there are in boxer-briefs. Besides being comfortable they are also very stylish. Most briefs don't come with interesting patterns and prints on them like boxers. But boxer-briefs can have patterns and prints. A very popular one that I have seen a lot of is horizontal stripes. In the future I plan on blogging a lot about all the different kinds of boxer-briefs there are. These particular boxer-briefs are made by 2(x)ist. They are called 2(x)ist Men's Cotton Boxer Brief on Amazon. A quote from 2(x)ist says "What Makes 2(x)ist so special? 2(x)ist has redefined men's underwear. Attention to detail, coupled with superb quality and numerous options in style, fabrics, colors and fit are what have made 2(x)ist the underwear of choice for contemporary, body conscious men." This is a pretty big thing to live up to but I think 2(x)ist does a very good job of living up to their expectations for theirselves. This particular boxer-brief is made out of 100% cotton with a 1x1 rib layout. They have an exposed microfiber logo waistband. The silhouette is a 3-part gusset with center panel grain cut vertically and side panels cut horizontally. And they have a fully functioning fly that has the look of no fly so that the fly doesn't fly open in an inconveinent time. It also has a special design so that it won't ride up and give you a wedgie. Which is really nice because most tight underwear has a tendancy to do this and if you are trying to work and get things done it can be a little annoying to have your "knickers" in a knot in your ass. Altogether 2(x)ist's boxer-brief is very well designed. Although I personally haven't tried these out for myself many people online and that I know love them and I am very tempted to go out and buy some right now after I finish this post. Basically that is a strong recommendation so if you are into underwear, which is why you are here, then you should definately own some of these in your collection.
