Cazwell Goes Commando, Launches Underwear Line - Exclusive Interview

Cazwell is a well-known rapper known for his songs with gay themes and sexy videos. He recently launched a line of underwear called Ice Cream Truck after his hit single with the same name. The line is a collaboration with designer Geoffrey Mac. We had the chance to sit down with Cazwell to discuss the collection, his underwear preferences, and what's next for the rapper. Check out the exclusive interview below.

MUB: Hello Cazwell, how are you? 
Cazwell: Good, thanks!

MUB: I'm a long-time fan and follower of your music. Let's get down to business and ask what we all want to know, what underwear are you wearing right now? 
C: Well today is long overdue laundry day so I’m actually free ballin’ right now in a pair of basketball shorts. But my whites are in the dryer, so I should have a fresh pair soon :)

MUB: Besides your own line, what would we find in your underwear drawer? Do you have a favorite style? Favorite brand?
C: I honestly have never have been a designer underwear kind of guy. I usually just run to Macy’s and grab a pack of Tommy’s or Calvin boxer briefs. I used to be strictly boxers kind of guy. It wasn’t until last year that I moved up to boxer briefs, lol.

MUB: What prompted you to start this line? What was the inspiration, besides the song of course? 
C: We were originally looking at sportswear. We wanted to do some basketball shorts and matching tanks, but then I said let’s just start with one simple product. I always wanted to get into the underwear business, and I did a lot of research with underwear buyers. We bounced back and forth with a bunch of names for it but landed on Ice Cream Truck because I’m associated with that video more than any other and it gave us the opportunity to work with a theme.

MUB: How involved were you in the design process? 
C: Very. I love working with Geoffrey Mac. They involved me in every step. It took a long time to figure it out. The things you think are simple like finding the right kind of elastic band to print the design on is actually extremely tedious, and there is a lot of testing involved but we finally got it right.

MUB: Will we be seeing you in "Ice Cream Truck"? 
C: Absolutely!! I’m planning the new ad campaign now. You’ll also see some new models. I'm excited about it!

MUB: It looks like the line is selling like hot cakes, or should we say hot pants? Do you have plans for expanding the line? Will you be making other styles like briefs or jockstraps? Or playing off of other slogans or songs of yours? 
C: You know I’m already thinking about that! LOL. The next step is dropping a bathing suit for the summer along with the next batch of underwear. This line obviously just started, but I hope to move into jockstraps and boxer shorts.

MUB: What's next for you? 
C: Right now I’m casting models for my next couple of videos so if you know of any, send them my way. And YES, they will be wearing Ice Cream Truck underwear…LOL!

JOR '80s Jockstrap Review

JOR is a brand that I didn't know all too much about until recently. They are a Colombian based underwear company, but have their products sold through many different places online. Most of their underwear are simple and basic styles, but they use many colors and color combinations that most companies wouldn't. The jockstrap I will be reviewing I purchased at MensUnderwearStore .

I own a few jockstraps, and I decided to give this one a try. I wear jockstraps mostly when working out, but sometimes I do like to wear them under normal everyday clothes. It's kind of a sexy secret, that only I know about.

JOR '80s Jock Strap 

Once I got this jockstrap, I was so excited to wear it, that I wore it out the next day. I had never really worn a jockstrap under jeans before, but it is definitely a feeling that I could get used to. There's a sense of freedom to it that I had never felt before.   

MensUnderwearStore carries a number of different colors, and prints of this jockstrap, but I chose to go with the pink waistband and black and white striped pouch. The pink is a very vibrant color, somewhat of a cross between highlighter pink, and bubblegum pink. 

The fabric of this is great. It is a 96% Polyester /4% Spandex blend. It is much stretchier than other jockstraps that I have. But it isn't too stretchy that it will lose it's elasticity quickly. With the spandex blend in it, it gives you somewhat of a "natural hang" in the pouch, while still supporting everything. 
I am normally a small in most company's sizing, and this one is no different. The only downside to these that I would say is that the straps that go around the back are just the tiniest bit too long. I do think part of this can be contributed to my lack of "junk in the trunk".  

The straps sit in a good place in the back, and don't seem to move around too much during movement. The elastic is just the right amount of tight. It is tight to your body, so it won't slide around, but it isn't too tight, to squeeze you too much. I have had other jockstraps where the waistband in the back likes to rise up, but these don't seem to do that. I have worn and washed these a number of times, and don't see any signs of wear on them. I would definitely recommend these for working out, wearing around the house, or everyday wear. They are super breathable, and very comfortable. 

Overall, I would give this jockstrap a solid 8.5/10. 

FIT: 8/10
COMFORT: 9.1/10
STYLE: 7.9/10
QUALITY: 8.5/10
VALUE: 7/10
