New Brand: Tribe Underwear

Tribe Underwear is an Australian brand that has been on the market for about a year now (they launched in July 2008). It is completely made and manufactured in Australia. It is available in a few stores in Australia but you'll have the best luck getting it online at their site. The line has been in development for three years now and is the brain-child of Bettina Andretic and Tony Hall. They were inspired in a most interesting way: they read an article where fashion icon David Beckham stated that he liked to wear Victoria's underwear around the house because the fabric felt really nice. So this sparked the idea to make men's underwear out of similar fabric.

The first thing I've got to say about this brand is that I think it's super hot! You may think that making men's underwear out of this type of fabric might have a very feminine result. But that is not the case at all. This underwear is very masculine and very unique and everyone who sees it will want to know where you got it and where they can get some. It's just that hot. The underwear comes in six styles: slim side briefs, standard briefs, trunk briefs, boyleg briefs, short boxers, and long boxers. But the mystique lies in the fabric not the cuts. Tribe underwear has some of the most unique fabric I've seen in the men's underwear world. They have everything from sexy, almost sheer fabrics like the black devore to more modest fabrics for the less daring like their palm fabric. My personal favorite is what they call burn out; it is basically orange ,cut velvet with sheer fabric where the velvet has been cut to form a floral pattern. It's super sexy while still keeping you covered.

So if you've been wanting some underwear to bring out that softer, sexier side in you this is the perfect thing. All I can say is I can't wait to try them out. And as always I'll let you know what I think - so be on the lookout for a review.

I didn't completely agree with what won on your survey but I think a post like this is a great way to incorporate a lot of the same things.

You provided enticing images as well as information on a new product and useful links to getting it. You also injected some of your thoughts into it.

This is one of the better posts I've seen from you.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you Wil for your comment. It means a lot. I'm glad you liked this. I'm hoping to do more similar posts in the future.

I agree with you, the results of the poll are not what I would like to do either so I'm going to incorporate those results a little more while continuing to do posts like this.
