New from Jameswinston...

As promised, Jameswinston has lots of exciting things planned for 2008. First up is the S-brief. This is a brand new shape for Jameswinston and the underwear world. They took their basic hipster trunk pattern and merged it with the fit of a brief and the S-brief was born. As with all Jameswinston underwear, the S-brief comes in vibrant colors with contrast coverstitching on the garment seams to add interest.

Next up is the petit-brief. This is a result of all of the Jameswinston customers who requested a micro-brief or bikini brief. It is pretty much what you would expect in terms of a bikini or micro-brief, only like the rest of Jameswinston, it is in fantastic colors (Caspian, Tusk ivory, Moor, Tzar, and Darkwood).

A new feature in both of these new designs is an unthought of, totally natural enhancer aspect coming as standard. The details of this are not completely explained yet, but more info will be coming soon. You can, however, view some more product pics on the Jameswinston website.

If you want to find out more immediately, just join Jameswinston Co. (using their "Contact" page). You'll also get an exclusive peek at some new photos from their upcoming marketing campaign, and lots more!

New from Cocksox: Boxer

Almost since the beginning of Cocksox they've been receiving requests for a boxer style. Over the last year Cocksox has been working to develop the perfect Cocksox boxer; the cut and fit had to be absolutely perfect. Finally it's here! The Cocksox boxer, made from Supplex fabric, wraps right around your body from inside thigh to inside thing without any seams; that's a big innovation. And out front is the innovative Cocksox pouch that will keep your boys front and center. The Cocksox boxer is just long enough in the leg to stop them riding up your thigh but not so long that they'll hang out your shorts or dangle around your knees when running or working out. The Cocksox boxer comes in two colors, carbon black and quartz white. And to celebrate the occasion, Cocksox is offering 10% off this new product. Just enter the code "box08" into the promo code box at checkout. The code expires at midnight on March 30, so don't miss out!

Nation Up North Review

Some of you may remember that I mentioned a brand of underwear called Nation Up North. Well, I just dug my NUNs out of my underwear drawer and wore them for the first time since I got them a few months back. I've got to say they are some of the best undies I've worn in a while. If you didn't read my brand profile from August you can go back and read it, or here's a quick refresher.

Basically Nanna Trier realized in 2004 that the men's underwear world today is vast and filled with all sorts of colors, designs, and other funky things. But a lot of these "novelty" products don't really measure up in terms of comfort; they're all style. Nanna went back to the basics with NUN while still not compromising on style. Read this page on their website for more about the product.

NUN only comes in a trunk style in four colors (black, white, grey, and red). I sampled the red and grey. Now for my experience. This really is some of the most comfortable underwear I've worn. The modal fabric is nice and soft and it conforms to the body perfectly; it isn't too tight or too loose. Their website claims that the trunks are sewn from unbreakable thread, I really cannot speak to that, but I can say that the detailing on these trunks is fantastic and they look as if they are made to last. The styling is exquisite. I really like the way that there are no seams on the butt, there are just seams on the sides and the pouch. This really makes for a comfortable rear (sometimes the "butt seams" on trunks and boxerbriefs can be uncomfortable). But unlike the usual side seams, these side seams are at a slight diagonal. I feel that this allows for a better range of motion (or at least more comfortable) while wearing these. Sometimes trunks (especially ones that are longer like these) can constrict one's motion in athletic-type activities, but I didn't feel that with these. I also really enjoyed the fact that there is no tag inside, the care instructions are simply printed on the inside of the fabric. I also agree with the website about the comfort of the waistband and the fact that it does not twist or fold, which is very nice for athletic activities. My only minor issue with these is that the waistband is a little dated looking. It isn't very hip or interesting, nor is it classic-looking; the waistband look is just incongruous with the rest of the design. I think, though, that the white trunk waistband probably looks a lot better since the contrast between grey and white is not as large as the contrast between black and white. Overall, I love these undies and feel that they would be great for most activities. I went through my trial days without any adjustments at all (quite a rarity). These undies are a bit pricey at $35 a pair (they only accept paypal), but for the comfort they are worth it.

Overall, I give the Nation Up North Trunks a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 10 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 8.5 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 10 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8.5 (out of 10)

Comment Moderation

Hey Guys. I just wanted to let you know that all comments will now be reviewed before they appear on the blog. We have simply been getting too much spam recently. Continue to post your comments as before, the only difference is they will not appear immediately. I really wish I didn't have to do this as it is going to be tedious, but unfortunately there are some people who have to ruin things for everyone.

New Innovation: Flashback

Many guys would do anything to get a rounder butt. I know I've had my days when I wish I had a "bubble-butt". Well now Andrew Christian has developed new butt lifting technology that promises to do just that. But this rear-enhancing brief is much different than the other ones out there. Instead of using padding, cups, or straps that are hidden inside, this brief features an invisible lifting support built into the seams of the underwear. The construction of the underwear automatically lifts the buttocks making it look firm and round. AC claims that most people can add up to 1/2 to 1 inches onto their current buttocks measurements. So if you've been longing for that perfectly shaped butt, hold off on the gym and try out these briefs first. Let us know how they work.

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Wear your green undies and go out and party!

Rufskin Swim Jock

Here's a new idea (or at least one I haven't seen before): a swim jock that is meant to be seen (not to be confused with a swimmer jock which looks like your standard athletic supporter only slimmer). This jock comes from Rufskin, and as you'd expect with a jock, it has an entirely open back. Now of course you don't have to wear it all by itself, and in fact they encourage you to wear it under boardshorts and the like as it will provide support (which boardshorts do not). But based on the styling of this swim jock, it very easily could be worn by itself (it is at least meant to be seen). This swim jock is like the fashion jockstrap of swim jocks; it does not have the athletic look that many swimmer jocks have. Wear it how you will, this swim jock will certainly look hot in red or blue. You can get it at Malestrom for $42.

New Collection: Artificial Flavor

Artificial Flavor has just released a ton of new undies. The new range features prints, tye-dye, new styling on the briefs, and new colors! Another new thing for Artificial Flavor is the logo waistband. Before they did have a logo waistband, but the logo was inside and it was fabric-wrapped on the outside. But this time around the logo is in plain view. Lots of exciting new innovations for this season! I'm excited to try out this new stuff. Artificial Flavor has always been one of my favorite brands in terms of comfort and everyday wearability. I love how they couple this with fun, unique styling. So check out their site to get the latest.

Petit-Brief Coming Soon...

Another new product that will be coming soon from Jameswinston Co is the Petit-Brief. This pant is a reaction to a number of customers who suggested they would like to see a 'micro - brief ' or bikini shape. It will come in five new colors (the color above is called Caspian) and comes with subtle sub-vintage style elements. Jameswinston is looking to take their standard objective of fit and cut on this pant to new levels. A feature of both new pants (this and the S-brief) will again be the simple, totally natural enhancer aspect coming as standard with the first two ranges they launch next year. At the moment Jameswinston is working very hard to make sure everyone is meeting their standards so they can get you quality products soon.

New brand: Obviously

Obviously for men is billed as "anatomical underwear." You may be wondering, 'what does that mean?'. Well obviously underwear is quite different from standard underwear; instead of a pouch, obviously feature a pocket. This keeps your stuff separate from the rest of your body, so if you are one of those guys who is concerned about sperm count and temperature down there, this is perfect for you. The pocket also allows everything to hang naturally while still supporting everything. So if you are into sports, you might want to give these a try. The undies are made of super-soft and silky modal mix fabric, so you will be sure to be comfy all day long. They come in two styles, a boxer brief and mini-brief. Both styles come in black, white, blue, or red. Also, the waistband features the Obviously signature logo with the male arrow rising out of the second 'o'. I think that this is a really unique idea that has potential to be amazing. I have not tried them out yet, so if you have, let us know how they work. You can purchase Obviously in black or white at DeadGoodUndies or you can purchase all the colors at Obviously's official website.
