Eye Candy: Brent Corrigan in 7Up briefs


Here's a photo I found of actor, model and pornstar Brent Corrigan strutting his stuff in a pair of 7 Up briefs.  I have no idea where to find underwear like this, but he sure fills them well.  And in the words of their 1980 slogan I'm "Feelin' 7 Up".

Smart Undies Shopper

I went on a huge shopping spree yesterday when I got back to school... I was in the mood to get some new undies. When I shop for undies I usually have a goal. The goal for me yesterday was to get some jockstraps. The jock that I already own is this 2(x)ist All Star jock in white. I really love the feel of jocks and think they will be great for the summer! Let me tell you I ended up ordering a ton of undies!
Now we all get those emails from the different underwear stores with different sales they are having. I feel like I get at least 2 emails from different places a day. It is so tempting to just keep buying undies every time you get an email. But the rule I follow is always wait till the item you want is on sale or get it if it is under $15.

In total I ended up getting 14 pairs of underwear for $94 including all the shipping. I looked at different stores and compared all their sales and got the best price! I ordered from a total of four stores and can't wait for everything to come! This is my last big order of stuff for the summer when I'm at home. So with a haul of 5 briefs, 1 sports brief, 3 trunks, 5 jocks I think I am all set for a few months!! Just remember, underwear sites have sales all the time, make sure you pounce on the ones that will get you the most undies for you buck!!

The Only Boy In Briefs

Today we're pleased to welcome new poster Matty to the MUB team.  Here's his first regular post, he guest posted a couple weeks back here.  Let us know what you think!
Being a college student I know I am in the minority when I wear briefs. Most guys in college wear boxers or boxer briefs. I like when I wear briefs because it makes me feel so much more cute. Something about being different than everyone else makes it exciting. With warmer weather on the horizon, wearing the least amount of fabric also won't do any harm.

My favorite briefs are these 2(x)ist contrast fashion no show briefs. They have an amazing blue color that any guy would love! It is bright enough to brighten up your day. The comfort factor of these are off the charts. If I could, I would wear these briefs every day. They fit comfortably under jeans and then when you are home, they are great to lounge around in. When I go to bed I love to have everything in it's place so to speak. With these I can fall fast asleep in total comfort. It is safe to say I really love these briefs!

I have just started to get into briefs again and I plan on getting many more! At the moment 2(x)ist is my favorite brand, but who knows what great undies I will find next?

Let's Get Kinky with Lick - A Profile and Review


So I briefly mentioned Lick brand underwear in passing in my holiday gift guide.  Today I'd like to tell you a bit more about the brand and review their jockstrap.  Lick brand has four lines: Leisure, Individual, Classic, and Kinky.  When put together, the first letters of each line spell Lick, which I find very clever.  They also implement this into the waistband of their undies by highlighting the letter of the collection that the particular pair comes from (so on the Kinky collection undies the 'k' is highlighted on the waistband).  Lick's big claim to fame is that they have a new patented pouch design that claims to "cradle" your extremities just right.  While many brands claim this, you will see below that this actually may be true.  So without further ado, let me tell you about my thoughts on their "Kinky" collection jockstrap.  I tried it in pink but it also comes in black and white. 

So what's there to say about the fit of a jockstrap.  It's just a waistband and pouch with two elastic bands across your ass, right?  Well not entirely.  Surprisingly there's actually quite a number of different ways to cut a jockstrap, and Lick has done it right.  They've implemented a relatively large pouch into their jockstrap.  I've found that most fashion jocks have ridiculously small pouches that are impossible to stay in, especially when your junk gets excited.  But with Lick this is not the case.  They've incorporated a substantially sized pouch that is roomy enough to hold any man's junk in place (flaccid or otherwise).  But it is not so big that it looks ridiculous.  Then they have put thin, colored straps across the back.  Now I don't have the largest ass in the world, so often with jockstraps I find that the straps are too long to be tight against my butt, thus making the entire pouch too loose.  But these straps are a good length for me, but will also stretch comfortably to accommodate larger assets.  

Now these are definitely what I would call fashion jocks, I wouldn't recommend you wear them for protection in sports.  But they do their job and hold everything in place nicely and they're awfully comfy with their 95% cotton/5% Spandex blend.  The straps do not cut into your butt as is sometimes the case with jocks.  The large pouch also is great because it stays in place and doesn't make your junk feel squashed.  

This fashion jock truly has style.  I tried it in pink which has a lot of style.  The black and the white are much more basic.  The waistband is white on all the colors, so it makes for a nice contrast on the pink and black pair.  The straps, however, match the rest of the jock.  The waistband is wider than many, but not too wide.  Overall, they have a very fun, almost retro feel to them. The pink is quite bright and a little out there, so you can't be shy about wearing them.  But then again, wearing fashion jocks in general requires you to be a little out there.  

These are well made and hold up good to multiple washes.  The color is also as bright and vibrant as ever with no signs of fading.  At £12 a pop (about $20 USD), these are moderately priced.  They're maybe a little over-priced for something so basic.  But you will be hard-pressed to find this degree of comfort in another fashion jock.  

MY RATING:
Overall, I give the Lick "Kinky" Jockstrap a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 10 (out of 10) - Not your average jock.  Ample room in the pouch to accommodate everything. 
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10) - No cutting.  Large pouch makes for comfy, all-day wear. 
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10) - Basic with a little retro flair.  But they are jocks so they're out there. 
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10) - Well made, bright colors do not fade. 
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10) - Moderately priced, but hard to find an equally comfortable fashion jock.

Celebrity Underwear Sighting: Zac Efron

Once again hunky star Zac Efron lets his pants hang a little low to reveal the waistband of his underwear.  But this time, I am pleased to report, the star has decided to invest a little money in his drawers and get something a little better than Fruit of the Loom (what he was seen wearing previously).  Efron can be seen here sporting some white Calvin Klein trunks or briefs (my bet is for trunks).  And he sure wears them well, maybe CK should consider signing him as their next celebrity model?

New Brand: M-N Underwear

M-N is brand new company on the men's underwear scene, based in Mauritius the brand is heavily influenced by the mix of cultures, colors, and histories that exist there - there are African, Indian, and European influences on the island.  The brand is currently being sold in Mauritius, South Africa, Japan, UK, and soon to be sold under license in the US.  If you are in the US you of course can order online now through their website.  The brand is owned and designed by Richard Bennett, who is from the UK and has had many years of fashion design experience.  The overall look of the brand is bold, mixing at least two contrasting colors on every pair.  

There are three main lines, the  ZOM range which is simple and basic at an accessible price-point.  This range is young and stylish and is made from a cotton/elastane blend.  Then there is the AZURE range which is the mid-priced range.  This is also made of cotton/elastane and is what I would call the fun range of the three.  It incorporates lots of fun prints and patterns for a very bold, in your face look.  It comes in tight boxers (read boxerbriefs), trunks, and briefs.  And finally there's the G-SPORT range.  This is the more athletic range with high contrast, simple color-blocked designs.  The fabric on this range is made from bamboo and is designed to be extra supportive for sports.  This range comes in tight boxers, briefs, and strings (read thongs). 

I really love this brand and have had the chance to try a couple pairs.  So far I'm really enjoying them, I have to say the G-SPORT range has some of the softest waistbands that I have ever felt.  The bold colors and designs look very fashion-forward and with it.  People will definitely turn for a second look when you're wearing M-N.

Special Edition Good Devil Waistband Exclusively at Freshpair

Wearing my Grundies... A Review

We've spoken a couple times on here about an up-and-coming Australian brand called Grundies.  Today I want to give you my opinions on one of their most prevalent and popular cuts - the fit short (read "trunk").  So without further ado, I bring you today's review.

For the purpose of today's review, I tried the Tattoo Fit Short in blue.  I really like the fit of these trunks, this is one of my favorite fits to wear period (regardless of brand).  They give you nice full coverage while still being revealing and hip.  You don't have to worry about anything falling out or being on display but they're still small and tight enough to subtly show off your physique.  The legs on these trunks are just about even with the bottom of the pouch and the waistband rises to about where your low-rise jeans would sit.  So they're not a super low-rise but they're not up to your navel either. 

These things are comfortable for all day wear.  As is common in a lot of undies, the tag is screen-printed onto the back so there's no itching to worry about.  The pouch is made of a single piece of fabric (no seams down the middle, which is often the case).  It isn't quite what I would call a contoured pouch, but it gives you enough room to hang in.  If you look at the cut of the design, the pouch is actually a sort of filled-in U-shape that extends down to your perineum area.  Made of 90% cotton and 10% elastane (to hold its shape), this fabric hugs the body snugly but not too tight.  I feel like I can breathe in these.  The legbands are simply the fabric rolled over a couple times, so there is no uncomfortable pinching.  The logo waistband is not only stylish but quite soft on both sides.  It stays in place but doesn't cut in.  The back is seamless for a nice smooth look. 

While the cut of these is quite basic, there is still some stylish flair.  The blue color against the black waistband really pops.  On one leg (on this particular pair) is screen printed the "Grundies" logo and then a few stars are printed on the other leg to mimic the Australian flag.  These are nice touches that make these undies (or should I say Grundies) stand out.  Also, as their signature on all their undies, Grundies puts a small red tag with their logo on the left leg attached to the bottom of the waistband.  I think this is a nice designer touch that shows the care and attention to detail that this company has.

These undies are pretty well made, I'd say.  I've worn them numerous times (keep meaning to do this review) and have washed them just as many and they've held up well.  The elastane helps them to keep their shape after each wash.  And just by glancing over them, you can tell they are made well: the waistband is held on by at least three rows of stitching.  The fabric, does, however fade a little after a few washes.  But that is to be expected with such a bright blue.  The screen printing also cracks a little bit, but that is to be expected on fabric that is constantly stretching and moving.  Other than that, these undies hold up fantastically.  They are currently on special for $19.95 (normally $24.95).  I would say for the style in combination with the comfort and great fit these are worth it.  Give Grundies a try. 


MY RATING:
Overall, I give the Grundies Tattoo Fit Short a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9 (out of 10) - Modest trunk.  Covers just enough but still shows off physique.  
COMFORT -- 9 (out of 10) - Good all day wear.  Tagless, no cutting on elastic. 
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10) - Basic with some Aussie flair
QUALITY -- 8 (out of 10) - Excellent attention to detail.  Will fade a bit though. 
VALUE -- 9 (out of 10) - Good bang for you buck.
