Review: Tiger Underwear

Tiger Underwear is a line of men's and boy's briefs inspired by male underwear from the 1960s and 1970s. The line is all about the retro styling. Now I first need to point out that I was not around when these undies were popular so I have no prior experience with these retro-style briefs. Another thing that I need to point out is that there is no real equivalent to a men's small in this line. Now I normally wear a men's small so I ended up going with the Boy's size 14-16, and that seemed to work out all right.

For the purpose of this review I will be talking about Tiger double-seat boy's briefs (although I'm sure the men's double-seat briefs will be very similar). When you first take these briefs out of the package they are long and thin, but as soon as you put them on they stretch out to conform to your body. This makes for an excellent fit. My only real issue with the fit was there was a bit of gaping at the legs (but this may be because I didn't really have the correct size). These briefs have a lot more coverage than most briefs now a days, I really like that aspect of these. They are much more comfortable in the legs than most briefs because the leg bands hit a little lower down the leg and thus allow for more movement. Also, the extra padding in the double-seat design does keep the rear a little more comfortable when sitting for long periods of time.

Now for the styling, these are definitely a throw-back to the old days. In being retro they do a very good job. I really like the crisp white of the underwear and the retro double-seat and full-rise. But I do feel that the waistband is a little outdated looking. I know that it is trying to be retro, but it ends up just looking a little weird showing above the top of modern jeans. The waistband looks fine paired with retro clothing (as shown on Tiger's website), but with modern clothing it just doesn't mesh. I'd like to see a version of Tiger underwear with either a plain white waistband or a more modern logo waistband while still maintaining the rest of the retro styling.

At $25 a piece (although they are currently on sale for $20) these are a little pricey. Although for such a specialized product it is understandable. I would, however, like to see a little better quality fabric for this price. The fabric is a little thin.

Overall though, these are really cool, comfortable briefs and I'd definitely recommend that you try some out for yourself. They are probably especially fun if you remember them from your childhood.

Overall, I give the Tiger Underwear Double Seat Briefs a total score of 8 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 8 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 8 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10)

What Daniel Radcliffe prefers underneath...

In this interview Daniel Radcliffe confirms that he prefers briefs, although not the super-tight kind. This is the first question in the interview, so you don't have to listen to the whole thing, but you can if you want. Even though Dan wears boxers on stage in Equus, he prefers briefs in real life. Wonder why he didn't lobby to wear briefs in the show?

New Diesel Swimwear

International Jock has a great new selection of Diesel swimwear for summer 2008. This collection is full of bright colors and graphic prints. It has a very fun summery feel to it. I particularly like the Lord Board Short (shown). It has a built in false waistband so you achieve the look of wearing and showing off your underwear without having soggy cotton undies underneath the shorts. I'm also a fan of the Gun Swim brief, the bold lettering adds a unique style to the suit. Los Angeles model Justin Gaston of Vision Models is featured in Diesel swimwear throughout International Jock's site. So check out Justin and the sexy Diesel swimwear for summer.

Brand Alert: Schultz

Schultz is a really cool brand that I for some reason have just not gotten around to telling you about. Schultz is a jean and underwear brand. Now usually I don't talk about the other things that a brand makes, but these jeans actually are really related to underwear. Here's the deal. Schultz jeans have a special feature called a Schultz Strap. This strap holds your jeans in place no matter how low you have them on your hips, so you can show off as much or as little of your underwear as you want. In fact, the Schultz strap is designed so that you could even walk around with your fly completely open without your pants falling down. How does it work? Well, it is a strap about the width of a belt that attaches to buttons in the inside front of your jeans. You adjust the strap like you would a belt to hold the jeans in place. Still confused? Check out this video to see it in action. This really is a revolutionary concept in showing off your underwear in public. Before Schultz, most guys who wanted to show off their undies let their pants "sag" in the back, but now you can show off your undies in the front as well. In addition to the jeans, Schultz also makes fun underwear with cute slogans on the waistband such as "I Want Out", "Hands Free", and "Coming Soon". The underwear comes in brief and boxerbrief styles in fun, bold colors. If you want to see more of Schultz in action, check out their YouTube channel. Schultz is innovation in the men's fashion world and it is guaranteed to make heads turn your way. Also, Schultz is now available at DGU.

And we're back...

New Advertiser: DGU + new brand Waxx

Welcome to our new advertiser Dead Good Undies. Dead Good Undies is child company of JustHOM. At Dead Good Undies you can find all sorts of great men's underwear and swimwear from brands like HOM, Sloggi, 2(x)ist, Bjorn Borg, Unico, Jameswinston, Obviously and many more including the new brand Waxx.

Waxx is a new underwear concept brand that although French in origin was actually conceived and developed in partnership with British designers. Waxx is also very well known for their sponsorship of extreme sports, thus their underwear is heavily influenced by urban trends and extreme sports themes. The prints are all very colorful and loud. Prints include money, butterflies, stars (shown), skulls, and more. It's very similar to the feel of Core-Point, or like Ginch Gonch on steroids. So check it out!
