All men need a proper base of durable, comfortable, great-fitting everyday undies that don’t deteriorate too quickly – and which don’t cost a fortune. Here at GUB we are always on the lookout for candidates within this category, and we think found a rare gem in the KXSS slip.
Short for “Keep it simply sexy”, KXSS was started in 2011 by Chris Statham wiht the aim to develop high quality and stylish men’s underwear for men. Judging by the competition as we know it (mainstream underwear brands in the $10-20 range), KXSS is an extremely affordable option within the everyday underwear category.
At a mere $13 USD, the brand’s flagship brief style was a satisfactory experience all around as I tried it out for a week of all-day wear. Sure, you will find brands and brief styles out there that are more stylish and modern, others will have a more superior fit, while some will have better fabric composition. But all of these qualities come at a cost. Rarely will you find a pair of briefs that score top grades in all these categories without them costing $20+.
In short, the KXSS slip brief simply has one of the best quality-to-price ratio within the affordable price range and I would not hesitate to recommend you guys buying 3-6 pairs for your everyday underwear drawer.

Our favorite underwear photographer, Andres Ramirez, recently sent us a new batch of wonderful men’s underwear photography art.
We won’t bore you with superlatives – let’s just get down to the photos. The brands featured in the pics below include Aussiebum, Hurmoso, Joe Snyder, Lasc, Xtg and Zylas.
The model, if you’re interested, is Santiago Quintero.
Forget all the sassy new underwear designs for men – when it gets down to what’s truly sexy, in our humble opinion, a pair of well-fitting briefs is the winner.
Luckily, almost all respectable men’s underwear offer some variation of the old classic, including today’s pick: Garçon Model.
And FYI, the undies below can be purchased over at garconmodel.com.
Junk Underjeans is not only all about sleek style and crazy good craftsmanship but their incredible attention to detail is also remarkable. We’re just not sure how they can produce quality goods like this for so less. Junk Underjeans has just launched at Jockstrap Central with their brand new Stealth line of jockstraps and trunks. Here’s the details:
The features are endless: A double walled fabric pouch for extra durability, a contoured pouch design for comfort and fit, double stitched contrasting piping, comfort leg straps with a unique pouch attachment to prevent the dreaded twist effect, a super soft plushed waistband and finally, care instructions silk screened right onto the inside fabric to prevent irritation.
As far as style goes, it’s oozing with it: A soft micro houndstooth pouch fabric gives this jock a very modern, sleek and certainly futuristic look which perfectly matches the Tron-like font that is the JUNK logo on the waistband. Contrasting piping edge the pouch and match the leg straps and waistband accent colors. Available in five colors, red, green, orange, yellow and blue.
Sharing many of the same features as the jock above, including a double walled contoured pouch and comfort waistband, but what really sets this trunk apart is its awesome looking paneled construction alternating between a hi-tech micro houndstooth fabric and a solid heather grey one. Contrasting stitching joining the panels and also in the seat add some oomph and printed front chevrons hit home the futuristic designs aligning it with the Junk logo on the waistband. Available in either red, orange or green.
