aussie on my Bum (a review)

I think I have found a new favorite brand of swimwear! This week I got a few things from aussieBum and one of them happened to be a pair of swim briefs called Origin. I'm pretty picky when it comes to the swimsuits I wear for the swim team, I want a suit that is of good quality, one that has a thick fabric, one with a great design, one with a good amount of coverage, and one that will hold up to the crazy amounts of chlorine in my school's pool. Let me tell you, this suit was a winner in every category.

Since I'm swimming at a public pool I like for the suit to...well, not give an exact outline of everything I'm packing. So I was pleased to see how thick the suit and its lining is. Where I would normally have to wear a suit underneath my "speedo" to conceal my junk, I don't have to worry about that on this one, I just put this puppy on and dive in. The Origin is made of 72% Nylon, 28% Lycra and has a rear lining to boot.

I found the design of the Origin to be downright amazing. I love a square cut suit with a low-rise, and that is pretty much the perfect description for this one. The design is impeccable, my suit came in the perfect chocolaty brown and has the aussieBum logo plastered to the back, 'cause who doesn't want a little advertising.

The pool at my school may have more chlorine in it than it does water. It's crazy, you'll go in wearing a blue suit and come out wearing a white one, I had a friend who's suit was originally green and by the end of practice it was a nasty yellow. That's not the case with the aussieBum, not only did it keep its color, but it held its shape and size like no suit I've ever had.

I love the feel of swimwear, the rush of the water flowing past almost every inch of skin, and just having the smallest area covered is a pretty crazing feeling. The origin well exceeded my expectations for comfort. I figured it would be like all my other suits, hard and stiff, yet this one is both soft and stretchy. And the best part is it feels as if I'm simply wearing a pair of underwear.

The Origin can be found on aussieBum's website. It sells for $35.96 (us.) Besides brown it also comes in black, indigo, blue and white.

I've worn a lot of suits over the years, and I can say for sure this is the best one I've ever had. My only complaint with the suit is... I wish I had gotten one a long time ago. So guys, whether you are a competitive swimmer like me or just the average beach goer, give the Origin from aussieBum a try, I know you won't be disappointed.

MY RATING: Overall, I give the aussieBum Origin a total score of 10 based on the following criteria:
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
PRICE -- 10 (out of 10)
WEARABILITY -- 11 (out of 10)
DURABILITY -- 10 (out of 10)

Mix and Match Promo at Jameswinston Co.

Jameswinston Co. has a new promotion going on for the next few weeks. It's called their mix and match promo, and for very good reasons. Here's how it works:
Buy any TWO new Retro's or New Classic rib TRUNKS and get TWO cult classics (plain or rib) for FREE. There is no coupon code for this, so customers will need to buy the TWO New Retros off the site (and pay for shipping) and Jameswinston will email you and arrange which colors in the cult classic you would prefer. This promotion is restricted to the New Retro TRUNK (thus it does not apply to the Hipsters or NEON). Also note, you can only buy the TWO NEW Retro Trunks (no additional pants) to qualify for the two free pairs, otherwise you will only be eligible for one free pair.

With 100% cotton fabrics and a full-cut traditional fit, Tiger Briefs offer a design fashion from the past that fits in with the whole retro trend going on today. Everything about this brand is old school, including their site images. It all just adds to the whole appeal of the brand.

Seasonal Changes in the Pants

Well it is once again time for another installment of Unzipped, so give me a sec to get my pants off, and we can have some fun. This week I thought I'd show you what I'm wearing, so the above photos are of what I had on this week. Last week I told you all about the new Undies from aussieBum, and on Monday I got a pair of the orange ones, so you can see those. Later on this weekend I'm going to post a review about them...just a hint (I love them.) On Monday I wore a pair of Jockey Elance Bikinis, which are my favorite style of underwear. Those are the white ones in the pic. On Wednesday, I wore another pair of new aussieBum's which are pretty cool, and I'm pretty sure everyone who has seen me in them wants a pair. On Thursday, I wore the ball lifter from WildmanT which I'm working on a review for, these guys are pretty fun. They give great lift and are so comfortable. And well on Friday, as any decent man does, I went commando, 'cause who really wears underwear on Fridays anyways?

So my topic of discussion for this week is: Since fall has started I've noticed a lot of guys switching their underwear. From boxers to briefs or from commando to boxers, or if you're me, I switched from bikinis and jocks to boxer briefs. So what do you all do, do you like to change it up or keep it the same?

So as always let me know, what you're thinking, the responses to last week's post were great. Keep them coming. So I've gotta go put my pants back on, and remember to always "Rock Out, With Your Hard Cock Out!"

Armani Exchange underwear in Action


A while back ago I told you about the launch of the new Armani Exchange line of underwear. But I didn't tell you about the real launch. In major cities where Armani Exchange outlets are located they had live male models strut their stuff in the new underwear. All purchases made on the launch day benefited a charity that is helping to rebuild New Orleans. So for more of the live male models view the video above. For the behind the scenes view of the advertising campaign, view the video below. [Note: Videos not available in feeds].

Basic Briefs

Where I live its not that easy to find great designer underwear, to say the least, I'm pretty much limited to my local Macy's store. So the other day I was shopping for just some basic briefs and me being the athletic type I wanted some athletic briefs. When I mean basic I wanted just no-frills, simple stuff, so I was pretty excited to find the 3100 Essentials collection from 2(x)ist. These are as basic as it gets, yet retain the high quality we have all come to love from 2(x)ist.

While shopping I picked up a 3-pack of black Fly Front Briefs, and a pair of black Sports Briefs. The Fly Fronts were $19.00 and the Sports were $10.00. The sports pair are made of 100% cotton, and are pretty dang comfortable. I'm a big fan of athletic briefs because they allow a great range of movement that you don't get with regular briefs. You all know I love my jocks so the athletics are a great alternative to those, when I run in a jock I find that my shorts like to get stuck up my crack, so the full-back on these do great. Now the basic fly fronts aren't my first from 2(x)ist, I got some a couple years ago, and they've held up like you wouldn't believe. Often times I find briefs stretch out pretty quick, but these have held their shape very nicely, and they hold my boys even nicer.

If you're in need of some underwear but don't wanna drop the dough, check these out and check their prices out.

Tim Gunn Speaks on Foundation Garments


Tim Gunn, fashionable man extrodinaire made most famous from his role on Bravo's Project Runway, speaks with Conan about unmentionables, or as he likes to call them, foundation garments. Tim is also currently on a new show entitled Tim Gunn's Guide to Style which airs on Thursday nights on Bravo. During the segment we learn that Tim hates boxer shorts (which Conan prefers) and believes that well fitting, comfortable underwear creates a key foundation for the rest of a man's wardrobe. I have to say I agree with him completely. He also mentions that he doesn't like panty lines, which begs the question, what does Tim Gunn wear to avoid them? He never really says. What do you think Tim Gunn wears under his pin-stripe suits?

New from aussieBum

New from Vizeau

I'm a big fan of Vizeau so I was pretty excited to see that they have a new collection called Hollywood. Let me start off my warning you, if you don't like to bare all then these are not the suits for you, but luckily for me I like to show it all. The warning that comes with this collection is, they are Vizeau's raciest suits yet, so you've been warned. Hollywood, the land to be seen and to see, so if you have that attitude these are for you. Here are some of the most commonly used words.... "Crotchless" "Backless" and my favorite "Jock" which you all know I love. Not only are they racy, these suits are covered in hand sewn crystals, which unfortunately drives the price up.

My favorite suit is the Satyr, which is a crotchless swimsuit with metal and rhinestone clasp on both sides and has hand sewn crystals.

So if you're like me and can't wait to try a pair of these, head on over to Vizeau.com and check these out.

Hanes Backstage Contest

You may have seen the Hanes commercials with Michael Jordan and Cuba Gooding Jr. (if you haven't, check out the video below). The purpose of these commercials is to promote the Hanes Backstage website where you can win free Hanes ComfortSoft underwear, iPods, iPhones, or even a trip to the Super Bowl. All you have to do is find the 9 packages of Hanes underwear hidden all over the site (it's pretty easy, there's only one that's difficult, if you need help I can give you some hints), then you just register to win and it instantly tells you if you won or not. I read the detailed rules and it determines if you are an instant winner by the time at which you submit your entry. There are predetermined times at which someone will win, and whoever enters first at that particular time will win. The contest is open until November 30th, so there is plenty of time to enter to win. They will be giving away 5,000 undershirts, 5,000 underwear bottoms, 1 iPhone and 50 iPods. So your opportunities for winning are great. In fact, I won an undershirt just trying out their site. For more details on the contest rules, click here. Otherwise, start playing here! Good luck!
