Stay tuned...

Be sure to check UB tomorrow for two very important announcements. I cannot tell you what they will be, but I can tell you one of them involves a three-letter company that is the misspelling of a certain part of a man's anatomy. But I have said too much. Check back later tomorrow.

New items from DT Clothes

DT Clothes has launched some new styles just in time for summer. The launch includes new patterned briefs, some new patterned tanks, and a brand new style of boxer called the long boxer short (it looks a little bit like a sliding short). To see all the new products go to the "new" section of their website. I really love the whole DT lifestyle and line of products. Their products are so creative, imaginative, and fun. You will not find anything like DT clothes underwear elsewhere. It is really a fantastic line, and the new additions to it live up to everything that I've come to expect from them. Here's what the new line includes: zapped (shown large on right), megapixel (below from left to right), rubble, starman, eme, and zebity.

New Camo Collection from Papi

The new camo collection from Papi is now available at MaleBasics. It is available in two different camouflage prints and two different styles of underwear (a jockstrap and brief). I have not tried the camouflage line, but from my experience with Papi underwear I'm sure that they are comfortable. I usually don't say this, but just as a demonstration of the quality of Papi, I am currently wearing a Papi brief and I am quite comfortable right now.

JustHOM update

Just a very quick reminder that several great offers and sales are ending in the next few hours at JustHOM:

1. Pre-summer swimwear sale ends tonight
2. Fredy string buy 2 get 1 free ends tonight
3. Many end of line stock will be removed tonight

So if you are still waiting to cash in on these deals, make sure you do it before it is too late.

URL!

You may have noticed that when you navigate to http://underwearblog.blogspot.com you are now redirected you to http://www.mensunderwearblog.com. We now have an actual domain name. Thank you to Freshpair for providing the money to maintain this service. I would like to stress that Freshpair does not sponsor this blog and therefore my comments will not be biased, Freshpair only sponsors/provides the domain name.

I am currently figuring out all the logistics of this new domain name. There are a few glitches that I still have to work out with the registrar Go Daddy. So for the time being you must type in the www to get the blog, I hope to fix this soon.

I would suggest that until further notice you continue to type in http://underwearblog.blogspot.com to ensure that you will find this blog.

Also, if you link to this blog you will not have to update your link. It will automatically redirect to the new domain name.

This is just another part of the improvements to the blog that I promised earlier this year.

JockBoyLocker contest update!

You may remember a post about the Piggy Bottoms contest going on at JockBoyLocker. I was serious when I told you that if you mention that you heard about their contest on UB (this blog) you will be more likely to win a set of Ginch Gonch Piggy Bottoms. In fact, this has already paid off for two lucky UB readers. Here's their winning entries:

As crafty pig or a cunningHAM, I would like to tell you why I should get a free set of Piggie Bottom Briefs and Tank. Rather than boar you with too much detail my name is Kirt. Since I start reading Men’s UnderwearBlog I’ve followed your company’s success. I could tell you a bunch of hogwash about my favorite ballet being Swine Lake, but the Wurst of it is my partner is from the saus-age and he suggested I root around my pig pen for some nicer underwear. Like a piiiig with four eyes even with my glasses on I could not find a cool pair to wear. For a few months I’ve followed your company’s success, but as a teacher I’m waiting until pig’s fly to be able to afford some nice undies. Not really. I just thought I try for this contest.
-Kirt
Winner number 3

Hello JockBoylocker.com!!!
Well I saw this great contest on underwearblog.blogspot.com and thought I would enter. I LOVE underwear but sadly I am a poor college student who can’t take anymore of my parents money to buy underwear. I have a number of pairs that I love but have yet to be able to afford any Ginch Gonch since they are usually more expensive then other brands. If I won these I would be the happiest boy in my whole school (The Evergreen State College Olympia, WA), and it would make the end of my school that much better. I would hope you would consider me for this contest because it is not everyday you can make a poor student’s day. You know it might even raise my grades? Well, at least it would get make all the other boys jealous of my great underwear.
-Alex
Winner number 4

If you still have not yet won a set, there is still time. Be sure to mention that you heard about it here. Troy asked me to remind you to mention your first name and size (because there have been a few entries without that information). Also, if you have already entered and not yet won you can enter again! And finally, be sure to check out the The Lockerroom Blog for all the winning entries. So send your name, size, a mention of UB, and why you think you should get a set of Piggy Bottoms to contest@JockBoyLocker.com

New line from JM

The new JM Bamboo collection can be found at Wyzman.

aussieBum on YouTube


The above video is a fun video that I found on aussieBum's YouTube stream. You may be familiar with Carlee's Angels tour around the beaches of down under(wear) to find some guys to try out the new aussieBum Wonder Jocks. This video is particularly amusing as they ambush multiple guys at once. And the majority of these guys change right on the spot without the use of a towel.

For more fun aussieBum videos check out their official YouTube stream or their video section on their website.

International Jock has announced the immediate availability of over 60 brand new styles of swimwear, underwear, jockstraps and shirts from the hot, young designer Andrew Christian's Summer 2007 Collection. Check it out! Also, stay tuned for more photos of this new collection.

Designer Underwear

Why buy designer underwear? Why not just buy Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, Jockey, and other such brands? That is the question that I am often asked. Well there are a lot of reason to buy things besides generic brands. First off there is the quality and comfort factor. You are more likely to get quality and lasting underwear if they don't come in a three-pack. But you do also have to keep in mind that not all expensive underwear is good quality (but in my experience, most of it is). Second, there is the sexy factor. Usually designer underwear tends to look more sexy because it is better fitting and just that whole designer label thing (but there are some people who are so sexy that they can make any underwear look sexy). But this last reason, is what I consider to be my most interesting and most sincere answer. In a country (the USA) where everything is run by money, many dream of owning expensive things, including designer clothing. The thing is, designer clothing can be quite expensive. But if you buy designer underwear you don't necessarily have to be rich to own it because usually underwear is the most inexpensive thing that a designer makes. Also, if someone sees a designer label on your waistband they will assume that you must be wearing all designer clothing. Because after all, not very many people wear designer underwear and Wal-Mart everything else.

dik has its photo taken

This is the fourth installment in a series of posts by dik founder Marcus. Enjoy!
It was a big day today in dik land. Finally, we’ve been able to have our photo shoot! We finished up a little while ago with all our models, photographer and make-up artist. It was a long day for me, starting at 6am.

We did the shoot on location, rather than at a studio. We managed to locate space in a house that provided the perfect backdrops we were after. It was an absolute blast. We can’t wait to have all you guys see the amazing shots we took. The models are unbelievable sexy and we think that you guys will be blown away by the looks of some of the poses that will be used in our advertisements.

Because we had planned to actually do this shoot a few months ago (before we had to switch manufacturers due to unbelievably terrible initial samples), so we were very well prepared. We knew exactly what shots we were going for so there was very little time wasted. All the people involved had also been interviewed and selected well ahead of time. We were very relieved to finally have them able to come over for the shoot. There had been more than one scheduled date that needed to be cancelled.

The extra time was a blessing though. Aside from the shots we had planned for months now, it also allowed us to come up with some additional shots for further marketing and product shots that we hadn’t thought of initially. Had we done this earlier, odds are we would have needed to do another shoot in the near future.

This was the first shoot I have taken part in as the controlling party. It was a great experience. I need to commend all those involved. The models showed up in amazing shape. I think you’ll agree when you see the pictures of just how buff they are.

There are going to be some very exciting developments incredibly quickly now! If you’ve signed up for newsletter updates, you’ll be in for a surprise soon. If not, stay tuned here and around the web for announcements.

Cheers,
Marcus
founder of dik

New Items at TopDrawers

TopDrawers has added some great new items to their stock rooms. TopDrawers stocks many hard-to-find brands in addition to some main stream brands. I'm always very impressed with what I see there.

First off we have the hard-to-find Blend brand. I honestly have not been able to find this brand of underwear anywhere else. I've seen their clothing in department stores before, but never have I seen underwear from them.


Blend brand underwear is very fun and funky blended with a bit of sexy.

Up next we have the upscale brand Diesel. They are known for their trend-setting fashions season after season. Here's some of the new stuff at TopDrawers.

And finally we have Mundo Unico. Unico is a very popular brand that I have talked about many times before. Here's some of the new collection at TopDrawers.

So go check out Blend, Diesel, and Unico at TopDrawers.

New store coming soon...

New store, Bed Beach & Burn coming soon! Stay tuned for more info.

Mensuas Swim Bikini

With the summer months rolling in, now is the time to start thinking about what you are going to wear to the beach. Although this is an underwear blog, swimwear is still related to the theme. And besides, as I pointed out in this post, swimwear can be worn as underwear. Anyway, with the summer months quickly approaching, many of you are probably looking for unique swimwear to wear to the beach. Here's an original swim bikini designed by Tulio for Mensuas. A great swim bikini with a full seat, drawstring waistband, lined front pouch and the Mensuas logo made of silicone so if will not fall apart. So if you want something that no one else will have, considering buying an original from Mensuas.

More goodies for your goodies from WildmanT

Tim has done it again. This time he's rolled out an adjustable version of his ever-popular Ball Lifter. Currently it is only available in dust blue.

Why adjustable you might ask? Well Tim has an answer: It is "So if you start the evening out with wanting just a little lift, and before the night is over your feeling dangerous and you want to little extra lift, then this Ball Lifter is for you!"

So there you have it, the adjustable Ball Lifter from WildmanT.

Deal Alert: iBoxer at Amazon

I have posted numerous times about the innovation of the iBoxer from Play (a division of Intimo). However, I have never actually urged that you buy it. I have simply said that it is a very innovative concept. Well if you have not yet bought one, here is some motivation: The iBoxer from play is normally priced at $22 but now you can get it at Amazon for $5.99 (for those of you who are slow at math, that's 72% off!). I strongly urge that you cash in on this deal while supplies last, it seems that Amazon is clearing out their warehouses on this product. There are still plenty of sizes and colors left, but hurry now. Not all of the iBoxers are on this sale, but this particular style is.

Free stuff from Under Gear

Now until the 27th you can get a free necklace from Under Gear with a $75 or more purchase. Use coupon code U7KFREEA at checkout.

Dirty Fukker... coming soon

Here's another preview pic from Dirty Fukker:

Go Software Fashion Show Videos

Here are some videos from the Summer 2007 Go Software fashion show. Check them out!
Part 1 (warning, some profanity):

Part 2:

I LOVE my AFlavor briefs!

No preface is necessary for this review (I've given you the low-down on Artificial Flavor many times before). I'm just going to launch right in. I tried the Artificial Flavor Magnum brief. This brief is definitely towards the top of my list for the most comfortable brief I've ever tried. The fabric is very soft and stretches just enough to allow movement without restriction. The leg bands are loose-enough so that they do not dig into your thighs but they still hold the brief nicely in place. The low-rise design (although it is not advertised as such, it is in fact low-rise) covers up all the crucial bits in a very comfortable and sexy way. The leg holes are very high cut, which may be the reason why the leg bands do not cut or restrict (it is almost a tanga or bikini-like cut). Another thing that adds to the comfort of these briefs is the fact that there are hardly any seams on it. There are just two seams to add a little pouch area up front and one seam underneath (i.e. between the legs) to connect the front and the back piece of fabric. There are no seams on the sides or in the back like one finds on many other pairs of briefs. I absolutely love these briefs. I was not planning on reviewing them at all but after wearing them all day, I realized that I just have to review them and let you know how great they are. As I've said, the fit is very skimpy, but it is still decent. This is the type of brief that just knowing that you are wearing them will make you feel sexy all day long. When I put them on this morning and saw myself in the mirror I just thought to myself how great I looked in them. The style of these is just excellent. I love the colorful, yet simplistic, design. Also, the contrast, asymmetric ribbing across the front pouch makes them look as if they have a functional fly without all the extra bulk (after all, no one really uses their fly on their underwear anyway). I tried a color that they no longer sell at AFlavor (the grey Magnum), but I've got to say, I am really impressed with how white and pristine the waistband has remained after many washes and wears. Artificially Flavor briefs are quality and comfortable briefs that will really change the way you feel about briefs. If you haven't worn briefs in a while or have written them off in the past as uncomfortable, I strongly urge you to try them again because these briefs will change any preconceived notions that you have about them. Just try them, you'll like them! You can buy them at Artificial Flavor or International Jock and many other e-tailers.

MY RATING:
Overall, I give the Artificial Flavor magnum briefs a total score of 9.5 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 10 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 10 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 10 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10)

********** 9.5

JockBoyLocker new site now live!

The count-down for the re-launch of JockBoyLocker was not exactly accurate. But the site is back up again. At first glance the first thing that I notice is a brand new layout (shown in screen-cap above). There's a navbar on the left for searching through their locker in a number of ways (style, brand, etc). And on the right is a bar with a list of brands the brands' logos. The layout is very spiffy. JockBoyLocker has a definite look that they use in all their promotional material. My only complaint is that the layout is a little too wide and may not display correctly on lower resolution monitors (or you may have to scroll horizontally). Another interesting new feature that I have noticed is JockBoyMusic. Now you can have a locker soundtrack while browsing through their undies. So check that out as well. Overall the layout is a nice improvement. So props to jockboys Troy and Benji. I know they have some more exciting things coming up, so stay tuned.

Jock Boy Locker Re-launch

JockBoyLocker is re-launching their site today. There will be a new design. I cannot wait to see what it will be like. According to their count down (screen-shot shown above) it should be done in a little under an hour. Check back a little later and I'll have a full review of the new site.

Bruno Banani at UrbanUnderwear

All through the month of May (and perhaps longer?), UrbanUnderwear is having a special deal on selected Bruno Banani underwear and swimwear (check to make sure that the product is on sale, not everything on the list linked is part of this deal). The deal is buy one pair and get the second half off. That's a really good deal, especially considering what some of these skivvies can cost. I really like the unique look of some of the Bruno Banani products.

I especially like the Bruno Banani botany hip short (shown). This style is so unique and colorful and yet its styling is reminiscent (to me at least) of art deco/art nouveau prints and patterns. All the products from Bruno Banani are fun and unique and it is unlikely that you will run into another man wearing them.

Also, if you live in the UK, UrbanUnderwear will ship to you for free!

Cocksox now at 10percent

10percent notified me and wanted to let UB readers know that they are now offering Cocksox. 10percent is having an introductory sale on Cocksox so head on over there to buy.

A while back I had the opportunity to try out the Cocksox brief. I gave them an 8/10. You can read the review post here. Or here is a quick overview of what I thought:
  • ...One thing that is true about the fit of these underwear is that they truly do what they say they do. They do enhance quite a bit. But not unrealistically. The enhancement that they give is very believable and does not look like you have stuffed your pants, or that you are constantly having a boner. It just looks like you are a very healthy, well-endowed man....
  • ...The style is excellent. The look great. They have a very sexy, revealing front. But a modest, full back. This is a really nice style because you can get the revealingness of thong underwear without the strap up the butt....[Unless of course you buy the thong style, which was not around when I wrote this review]

So that said, the Cocksox are worth a whirl, especially at a reduced price. As always, you can purchase Cocksox at Cocksox.com.

Correction: Ewan McGregor

A couple days ago I posted about Ewan McGregor and his aussieBum undies. What I wrote was a bit of a fabrication that has been running rampant on the web. It IS true that Ewan McGregor owns and wears aussieBum underwear; however, it is NOT true that he bought so much aussieBum undies that aBum ran a credit check on him. Here's what aussieBum has to say about it in an AusLife post:
We would .. like to state Ewan McGregor did not buy a huge volume of the underwear. He does wear aussieBum gear along with many other fashion labels. This was reported some time ago on him owning some aussieBum undies. This comment ended up in a new article that he bought many of the new Wonderjock underwear. We can assure readers this was not correct and given his reputation we doubt very much there would be a need for this.
I am not sure that I agree with aussieBum in that the wonder jock should only be worn by the under-endowed, I believe all men can use a little lift every now and then. Thank you to reader Ryan for setting me straight, sorry for the confusion.

Save $10 at Undergear

Undergear has a deal going on right now where you can save $10 off of a $75 or greater purchase. Do take advantage of this deal enter coupon code "U7KTAKEC". This offer ends in four days!

Celeb Ewan McGregor wears aussieBum...

I was just doing a bit of searching around the web for underwear news and I learned that celebrity Ewan McGregor is way into aussieBum wonderjocks. You may know Ewan as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars epic. Anyway, I learned that this Scottish actor ordered such a large amount of aussieBum undies that aussieBum had to do a credit check on him! Now that's a lot of underwear. As aussieBum founder Sean Asby says,
“We found out that Ewan McGregor was buying them only because he made such a huge order and we had to do a credit check.

“The fact these are selling so fast proves size matters to a modern man. The Wonderjocks were originally done as a bit of a joke after someone said to us, ‘Could you do something that makes me look a bit larger?’”

So there you have it folks. And this just goes to show that regular people are not the only ones into designer undies, celebrities are also getting in on the act.
