The Ultimate Aussiebum 2010 Men’s Swimwear Guide. Pictures and video.

Aussiebum Men's Swim Wear GuideSummer is upon us! And for most men’s underwear and swimwear enthusiasts this is our chance to debut the latest swim wear fashion on the beaches around the world.

So, at the moment I’m on vacation in the south of Thailand, and I come well-prepared and well-equipped with my personal selection of the best and latest swim wear from one of my absolute favorite brands, Aussiebum.

My starting point for selecting what cuts to bring was my recent men’s swim wear poll which revealed that you guys are divided into three major segments when it comes to you beach swim wear preferences.

Some prefer regular swim briefs. Others enjoy the longer legs and go for square cuts. And then there’s a great deal of you who are more into the surf look, choosing board shorts when hitting the beach.

Whatever category you belong to, I’ve chosen my personal favorite. And you know I would never recommend any underwear or swim wear style that I haven’t actually tried on myself.

So without any further delay, here’s my bid for the ultimate Aussiebum 2010 men’s swimwear guide.

The Ultimate Aussiebum Swim Briefs – The Wonderjock Classic
Even though Aussiebum offers more than a whopping 20 different swim brief styles, there really can be no doubt about my favorite of the bunch.

It’s the style that made Aussiebum famous around the world, the 2,5″ Wonderjock Classic swim brief. Since its introduction the Wonderjock’s signature pouch design has been incorporated in loads of other Aussiebum swim wear styles as well as underwear.

Aussiebum Wonderjock Men's Swim Brief

For those of you not in the know, here’s what so special about the Wonderjock pouch. The secret is that you place stuff (balls and all) into a pocket inside the briefs. The pocket then lifts everything up and out thus giving you an admirable pouch profile, eliminating those unfortunate “cold water” situations which can have a minimizing effect on your pouch appearance.

The Aussiebum Wonderjock 2,5″ Swim Brief is available in a ton of colors. Aussiebum also offers slim swim briefs (1,5″) and hipsters with Wonderjock functionality.

Personally, I like the original black swim brief the best. Why? Simply because it’s cool and classic-looking, and with the Wonderjock technology in place you don’t need fancy colors or prints to attract (or indeed diverge) attention from your crotch area.

Aussiebum Wonderjock Swim Brief

In terms of fit and production quality, Aussiebum is always a safe bet. The Wonderjock 2,5″ Swim Brief is made from 100 % Nylon, meaning it dries up incredibly fast after a swim.

I wore a size M for a 32 and the swim brief fit perfectly. Even though the pictures don’t really show it, the swim brief does come with an adjustable drawstring.

When getting a Wonderjock style, you need to be aware that your stuff is held firmly in place to ensure the lift effect. If you’re usually a fan of everything moving around more freely, you might want to choose one of the styles below instead.

The Aussiebum Wonderjock Original 2,5″ swim brief is US$27 at www.aussiebum.com.

The Ultimate Aussiebum Swim Square Cut (hipster) – League Hipster and Inspire Desire
So choosing my favorite hipster/square cut was actually a tough call. The two Aussiebum hipster cuts I find the most appealing are the Inspire Desire with the funky cool tartan inspired print design and the League Hipster, pictured below in a cool gray version.

Aussiebum Inspire Desire Men's Swim Hipster

Aussiebum League Swim Hipster Square cut for men

In fact, I was unable to choose one over the other. The Inspire Desire is blessed with a stylish print, which will get you all the (right) attention on the beach. It’s the “fashion” choice of the two candidates, and the 86% Polyester, 14% Elastane fabric blend is a perfect choice for fast-drying swim wear.

The inspire swim trunk is also available in a Wonderjock version. Click here to see the video.

Aussiebum Inspire Desire Hipster Back

The Aussiebum Inspire Desire swim hipster is US$46 at www.aussiebum.com.

The League Swim Hipster, on the other hand, is the option to go for if you’re looking for a sporty style that’s optimized for water activities. You could easily wear this to a game of water polo or for day of surfing.

In terms of fabric, the League Hipster is slightly different from the Inspire Desire as it is made from 80% Nylon and 20% Lycra, which felt absolutely wonderful to wear. Again I wore a size M, and it had plenty of stretch to provide an excellent fit.

When it comes to color options, both styles are available in an endless number of variations. As far as the League Hipster goes, I prefer the darker colors like the gray version shown above. You can get it with or without the number “10″ print.

At US$38, the Aussiebum League Swim Hipster is a slightly cheaper alternative than the Inspire Desire. Click here to buy it directly from Aussiebum.

The Ultimate Aussiebum Surf Shorts – Bondi Series Scent  Surf
The final category in Guys’ Underwear Blog’s ultimate guide to the best 2010 Aussiebum swimwear is surf shorts.

Many of you guys prefer the laid back and baggy look of a pair of surf shorts. And as far as I can tell from going to the beach in Europe, the US (and now Thailand), it is the most popular mainstream men’s swimwear style out there.

So no swim wear guide can be complete without a pair high-quality, comfortable surf shorts. Luckily, Aussiebum carries a number of styles in this category. I took a look at all of them and decided to try out the brand new Bondi Series surf shorts.

Aussibum Bondi Surf shorts

In terms of cut, the Bondi Series is a trend-setter. This summer board and surf shorts must be a little more short-legged than what we’re used to, with the legs of the shorts ending mid-thigh, quite a few inches above the knee.

In terms of print design, I prefer the Scent Surt variant, a fun floral print, typical for this kind of swim wear.

The Bondi Series surf shorts are made from 100 % Polyester, has a drawstring and a proper elastic band to ensure that the shorts stay put during water activities.

I wore them to the beach today, and they looked über stylish in my own opinion and felt absolutely great to wear. The size M was a perfect match for my 32″ waist.

This is definately the choice for you if you like your private parts to roam more freely than is the case with briefs and hipsters.

And the best part, the Aussiebum Bondi Series surf short is only about  US$32, which is a true bargain in my book. Real value for money.

With that we have come to end of the Ultimate Aussiebum 2010 Men’s Swimwear guide.

Tell me what your favorite Aussiebum swimwear style is!

Skinxwear men’s underwear – 3 great cuts and where to buy them.

We haven’t heard much from Asian men’s underwear brand, Skinxwear, the last six months. But that doesn’t mean that the interest has faded. My statistics show that a lot of you haven’t forgotten about this exciting brand.

If you got to this article via a search for information on Skinxwear, don’t forget to check out my other posts

I did some digging on the web and managed to track down an online store offering a number of Skinxwear styles. And indeed, there is an abundance of fascinating cuts to choose from.

So, for all you Skinxwear fans out there, here’s my list of the top three Skinxwear underwear styles you just can’t live without – and where to get them.

Skinxwear White Trunks (SN169) – for everyday purposes
The Skinxwear white trunks look like your average pair of trunks, but don’t let the ordinary looks fool you. In fact, the trunks are made from a enticing Tactel / Spandex fabric blend.

What is Tactel, you ask? A silky soft, fast-drying, lightweight and breathable type of fabric which tickles your senses. Sounds fantastic, right? It should make these trunks ideal for most everyday purposes, even sports activities.

The Skinxwear White Trunk is US$21,50 at My Pants Shop.

Skinxwear Forma Black Bikini Briefs (SP157) – Optimal freedom and sexy all in one
The Skinxwear Forma bikini brief is the cut to go for if you want maximum freedom of movement and a sexy look all at once. Made from a micro fibre fabric blend, this brief too is a highly breathable pair of underwear.

Be careful when choosing a bikini brief, though, as it can sometimes not provide adequate coverage. However, if you insist on a bold look for a fun night out, the Skinxwear forma Black Bikini Briefs is a perfect choice.

Another great feature… It’s just US$8 at the moment – get it now before it’s too late.

Skinxwear Glitz Briefs, White (SP179) – When you want to stand out
The final cut on my Skinxwear list is the funky and sparkly Skinxwear Glitz Brief. It’s not something I would normally wear but if you’re into Skinxwear’s products, chances are you’ll love this sassy little thing.

The brief is made from glitzy microfiber and is guaranteed to attract attention wherever you put it on display. It’s like wearing a disco ball! What a statement to make :)

The Skinxwear Glitz Brief is about US$19,50.

Groovin’ Cotton Hip Brief – A review

Today I’m wrapping up my series of posts on Groovin’ with a review of the Cotton Hip Brief.

Since my last review I’ve temporarily relocated to the fascinating city of Bangkok, Thailand, where I’m spending a few days vacationing. I think it’s only fitting that this last review (for now) of Japanese-based Groovin’s men’s underwear collection is written in the heart of Asia :)

The style I’ve been wearing is the Cotton Hip Brief which in terms of style and cut is identical with the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief. The main difference is – as it says in the name – that the Cotton Hip Brief is made from a classic cotton blend where the Low Waist Hip Brief was primarily Nylon-based.

What kind of implications this has on fit and the overall impression of the brief, you can read below.

Oh and I just want to throw in a little teaser… Remember to check back in over the next couple of weeks where I’ll be reviewing an abundance of great men’s swim wear, firmly tested on the beaches of South Thailand. This will include my ultimate guide to the best Aussiebum swim wear styles.

Now, all eyes on Groovin’.

Groovin' Hip Brief Men's Underwear

As mentioned, the cut and style of the Cotton Hip Brief is identical to its Nylon sibling, so go check out my review of that for an extensive account of the type of style we’re dealing with.

Pouch design
I was impressed by the pouch design of the Nylon version of this brief, and the pouch of cotton version is equally comfortable and has room enough for most men.

The pouch is double-layered with a subtle center seam. The double layered design is an important comfort factor to many, and it’s often a tell-tale sign of proper production quality.

Of course, cotton isn’t as stretchy as Nylon. This means that you can’t expect the fabric to mold and adjust to your specific package to the extent as was the case with the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief.

That said, I could find few flaws, it any, with the pouch design of the Cotton Hip Brief.

Grooving Hip Brief Gray/black

Back design
When it comes to the back design of brief, the fact that it’s cotton-based also means that you should be slightly more attentive when choosing the right size. This is a low-rise brief, and while it’s not skimpy, you should be make sure that you get proper back coverage.

An everyday cotton brief should cover the entire area of the butt and not reveal cracks nor crawl up, in, up, or down. I know I say this in almost every review, but to me failing to provide complete coverage can really easily squash the possibility of success for a pair of men’s briefs.

I found that I achieved proper coverage with the Cotton Hip Brief, but next time I get a pair, I would consider sizing up one size – more about that in the “Fit” section.

The waistband is slim, measuring about 1,2 inches in width, with sets of Groovin’ logos embroided.

I wore the gray version of the Cotton Hip Brief and the waistband and leg openings were black, which complements rather than contrasts the gray base color of the brief. The waistband does have a thin orange stripe running across the top, which is a nice and subtle colorful addition to the overall dark and traditional impression.

The waistband is neither too tight, nor too loose, and this combined with the low-rise profile mean you won’t experience any muffin top effect.

The waistband has a production information flap stitched on the inside rear of the waistband, which can easily be cut off for optimal comfort.

Fabric quality
It comes as no surprise that the Cotton Hip Brief is made from a 95 % Cotton / 5 % Spandex fabric blend. Not so much fuss in that. The fabric feels soft against the skin and is an optimal choice for most everyday purposes. I’ve washed the brief a few times, and the colors and elasticity are still nicely preserved.

One note, though. As I am currently in an overly humid climate here in Thailand (it’s rain season – reminding me of when I lived in Florida) I prefer to wear the Groovin’ Nylon brief. It’s simply a more breathable choice when the weather is hot and sweat is desperately escaping from every part of your body.

The gray and black variants of the Groovin’ Cotton Hip Brief is the perfect choice if you’re looking for classic colors that don’t draw too much attention. But rest assured that there are plenty of other colors to choose from if you want more spunk.

Go for the blue, orange, or green version to spice up your underwear drawer with some funky new underwear. See more color examples at the bottom of the post.

I touched upon it earlier. As I usually do, I wore a size M for a 32/33 inch waist. I would advise you to consider sizing up one size if you’re usually in the border area between two sizes. Other than this, I found the Cotton Hip Brief to be a great fit.

Groovin’ is a value-for-money brand, and at a very fair unit price of US $16.99 you can easily get a few pairs. Get it at Groovin’s own web shop.

New 2(x)ist men’s underwear enhances both front AND back

Profile-enhancing men’s underwear – it’s the talk of the town this week.

Just a few days ago, Aussiebum reminded us of the style that propelled their brand into underwear super stardom – the infamous and majorly successful Wonderjock.

These days, every major and minor men’s underwear brand offers some sort of underwear cut with enhancement capabilities.

Check out my “profile-enhancing” category for loads of stories and inspiration on this subject.

Anyway, 2(x)ist deserves some time in the spotlight as this week they announced their upcoming LIFT underwear range.

2xist Lift Trunk - men's profile-enhancing underwear 2xist Lift brief - men's profile-enhancing underwear

Out in August, this fascinating range of underwear captured my attention as it promises to enhance the profile of both the pouch and backside of the brief (or trunk).

2(x)ist Lift brief technology - men's profile-enhancing underwear 2(x)ist Lift trunk technology - men's profile-enhancing underwear

Granted, this concept isn’t new – Andrew Christian did a similar cut a while back (The Bubble Butt Underwear with Frontal Enhancement from his Show-It range) – but to the best of my knowledge it is a first by 2(x)ist. And it gets me excited because 2(x)ist is brand that normally offers so many diverse and fun underwear choices to the modern man, all of proper quality.

Here’s what 2(x)ist themselves say about the new LIFT range, “available in a Dual Lifting Brief and a Dual Lifting Trunk, Lift creates a more generous silhouette with a shrewdly-devised design in comfortable cotton/spandex, a breathable mesh support in the front pouch, and an elastic-stitched strapping for the rear.

Can’t wait.

New Armani ad with Christiano Ronaldo in briefs

Cristiano Ronaldo For Emporio Armani Men's UnderwearMaybe you’ve already seen the new Christiano Ronaldo ads for Emporio Armani…

But who are you kidding, you wouldn’t mind a second look, ha :)

Back in March the first ads featuring Portuguese soccer hunk, Christiano Ronaldo, started surfacing accompanied by a buzz, which I hadn’t seen the likes of since David Beckham’s fist Armani ads appeared.

Watch the first set of steaming photos (and hot underwear) of Christiano Ronaldo in his Armani briefs and trunks. There’s even a backstage video!

Also check out the pics of Lionel Messi posing as underwear model for Lody!

Capilizing on the FIFA World Cup in South Africa and Portugal’s current success, Armani has released a couple of new ads featuring, once again, Ronaldo.

The underwear is hot and I love that Emporio Armani’s main men’s underwear cut is briefs.

Hopefully, there’ll be more ads (and videos) :)

Aussiebum’s new video is a fireworks of men’s underwear styles, all built on the infamous Wonderjock platform.

Cut after cut, the underwear models show off the extensive range of Aussiebum Wonderjock underwear, which include an endless number of briefs and trunks.

You even get a peak of male underwear model taking off his Wonderjock brief…

Actually, the Wonderjock was the first profile-enhancing underwear I tried. And if you’ve ever tried it, you know the impressive effect it has on your bulge. It will change your perception of the capabilities of modern day men’s underwear.

Groovin’ Cup Boxer – A review

Get into the groove!

This is the second blog post in my series on Groovin’ underwear for men. Today I review the Groovin’ Cup Boxer, a funky little nylon trunk, which offers a surprisingly good fit.

If you just stopped by, remember to check out my review of the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief as well as the Groovin’ Cotton Hip Brief.

I really liked the Low Waist Hip Brief, and as you will see, the Cup Boxer is no exception.

No need to stall, let’s get on with it.

Where the Waist Hip Brief was properly labeled, I have to say that the Groovin Cup Boxer is no way near a boxer or boxer brief cut. This is a low rise trunk, bordering on a square cut.  And just to make it clear – this is not a bad thing, I happen to prefer trunks to long-legged boxer briefs. I just want to align your expectations with reality.

Since the Groovin’ Cup Boxer is made from an extremely stretchy (and overwhelmingly comfortable) nylon blend, it’s difficult to indicate an exact length of the sides of the trunk. Unstretched (as in when not worn), the sides of the trunk measure about 5,5 inches at their narrowest, including waistband.

The style may look a bit small when you unpack it, but it looks tremendous when you put it on. This also means that if you’re used to trunks, briefs, or boxer brief, the Groovin’ Cup Boxer will fit right in.

Groovin' Cup Boxer Trunk

Pouch design
The pouch design of the Groovin’ Cup Boxer is the result of excellent craftsmanship in my opinion. The pouch is built with enough room to harbor men of all sizes, and even if you’re endowed above average, the stretchiness of the fabric will let the pouch expand to create a perfect fit and adequate support.

Also, an added bonus is the chilling effect created by the nylon fabric. It whips moisture from your crotch and keeps your stuff cool and ventilated. On hot days this type of underwear is an absolute must.

Back design

If you’re bored with regular boxer briefs, but not a big fan of low rise briefs and borderline skimpy underwear, actually the Cup Boxer could be a good compromise. In spite of its minimalistic look it actually provides all the back coverage you need.

The stretchy fabric ensures a tight fit, and a center seam running down the back of the trunk accentuates your butt cheeks as two separate entities. I found it impressive that this effect was achieved without the fabric getting wedged in between the butt cheeks.

The white waistband is exactly the same as with the Groovin’ Waist Hip Brief. It measures about 1,2 inches in width, with understated gray Groovin’ logos embroided. The waistband does the job of keeping the trunk firmly in place on the hip and upper thighs just fine.

The waistband has a production information flap stitched on the inside rear of the waistband, which can easily be cut off for optimal comfort.

Groovin' Cup Boxer Purple

Fabric quality
Just as was the case with the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief, the Cup Boxer is made from a soft, stretchy and extremely ventilating 92 % Nylon / 8 % Lycra fabric blend. I’ve already mentioned the positive effect this fabric has on many of the features of the trunk. It’s just plain comfortable to wear.

Like the brief, the Cup Boxer is perfect for sports activities where it’s key to keep your body as dry as possible.

I wore the pink variant of the Groovin’ Cup Boxer trunk. The pink color is nicely contrasted by the white waistband. If you’re looking for more conservative colors, don’t worry. No less than 12 color variants are available, a couple of which I have added pictures of at the bottom of the post.

I wore a size M for a 32” waist and the Cup Boxer fit like glove, though as mentioned, it did look tiny when I unpacked it. No need to worry, though, I found absolutely no need to to size up or down.

The Groovin’ Cup Boxer is a another great deal if I ever saw one, setting you back no more than US $18. Them Japanese guys are really on to something with this kind quality/price ratio :)

Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief – A review

Remember Groovin’, the all new Japanese men’s underwear brand whose mission it is to inject fun and vibrancy into everyday lives of modern men?

I’ve been looking forward to trying on a pair of Groovin’ briefs because I’m quite the novice when it comes to Asian underwear design.

So now’s the time!

Over the next few days I’ll be reviewing two pair of hip briefs (made from different fabric blends) as well as a pair of trunks from Groovin’s current collection.

Check out my review of the Groovin’ Cup Boxer! And if you’re into cotton, check out my review of the Groovin’ Hip Brief.

Today, I’m taking a closer look at the Low Waist Hip Brief. And judging from the overall impression of this brief, I will happily endorse Groovin’ as a brand. Hopefully we’ll see more brands like this emerge from Asia in the future.

So far Groovin’ can be bought in brick stores in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand (where I’m headed in a few days – I’ll make sure to look for stores carrying Groovin’).

If you’re not stopping by any of these countries in the near future, and seeing how 60 % of you guys buy your underwear online, you’ll be happy to know that you can get all of their products from the official Groovin’ online shop as well as Deal by Ethan.

With that, let’s move on to the review of the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief.

The style of this brief is exactly what it says on the packaging, a quite low waist/low-rise brief. I would say this cut is somewhere between a bikini and regular brief as the sides of the brief measure 2 ½ inches at its narrowest including the waistband.

I wouldn’t say the brief comes off as skimpy since in terms of front- and back coverage it does its job just fine. If you’re an experienced low-rise kind of guy, the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief will a be fine addition to your underwear drawer.

Groovin' Waist Hip Brief Blue

Pouch design
The pouch is very well-designed with a discrete center seam (which I actually didn’t notice until I took the brief off after having worn them a whole day). The double-layered, extremely stretchy and breathable fabric from which the pouch is made ensure an absolute pleasurable experience. My stuff was kept firmly in placed at a comfortable cool temperature all day. Well done!

Groovin Hip Waist Brief PouchBack design
With very low-rise underwear you have to be careful about the back design, especially with briefs. Again, the Groovin’ Hip Brief offers just the right amount of coverage. The stretchiness of the fabric (which I will get back to) certainly helps to achieve this effect along with the properly designed leg openings. Conclusion: The briefs stayed in place all day, didn’t ride up or down and I didn’t have to adjust them at any point.

Grooving Hip Waist Brief back

The waistband is slim and well-proportioned, measuring about 1,2 inches in width, with funky and suggestive Groovin’ logos embroided. The waistband is neither too tight nor loose and helped keep the briefs firmly in place on the hip.

The waistband has a production information flap stitched on the inside rear of the waistband, which can easily be cut off for optimal comfort.

Grooving Hip Brief

Fabric quality
Here we go, the key feature of the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief. It’s made from an excellent and highly breathable 92 % Nylon / 8 % Lycra fabric blend. This is the secret behind the impressive stretchiness which does wonders for the pouch and back of the brief.

It also ensures a wonderful fit and makes the brief ideal for sports activities where it’s key to whip moisture from the body. That said, I wouldn’t hesitate to also wear it for everyday purposes as an alternative to regular cotton-based underwear. Especially on hot days.

I wore the bright blue variant of the Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief. It has a white waistband as well as white leg openings which create a nice contrast. No less than 9 color variants are available, including the all white traditional brief and a bright orange version for guys who enjoy a little more funk :)

I wore a size M for a 32” waist and the brief fit fine, though it looked a little small when I unpacked it. However, the stretchy fabric is very forgiving and I don’t think there should be a need to size up or down.

The Groovin’ Low Waist Hip Brief is a true underwear bargain at just US $16,50. Compared to rivaling brands in that price range Groovin’ is great value for money. So try it out!

LazzyBum – men’s underwear with attitude! With pictures.

LazzyBum is a new men’s underwear brand that’s starting to make its way into some of the major online underwear shops.

It seems the creative force behind LazzyBum is once again Jason Sutherland (the man who started Ginch Gonch and Piss & Vinegar).

I’ve been hearing some talk in the corridors about LazzuBum for a while but it seems that now is the time they’re finally launching.

As a brand LazzyBum is all about attitude!

Just read what LazzyBum themselves say about the brand, “LAZZYbum, is for the adrenalin junky male that is just really interested in everything to do with an endorphin rush. Mowing his lawn is for the Jones’.

So far, LazzyBum is out with standard underwear styles such as briefs, boxer briefs, and jockstraps. Price-wise, the brand is mid-range, a pair of regular briefs is about US $25.

I gotta say I like what I see so far. I’ve always been a sucker for funky print designs, and Jason Sutherland excels in this category. I’ll definitely be doing a review of some of their cuts in the not so distant future.

By the way, TopDrawers offers a pretty decent selection of LazzyBum styles.

Men’s underwear poll: What type of underwear do you wear for sports activities?

It’s poll time, people!

This week’s men’s underwear poll is inspired by this year’s FIFA Soccer/Football World Cup.

I’ve been watching a LOT of matches. And too many of them were incredibly boring, not enough action, too few goals. Not that I’m much of a sports junkie to begin with, but I’d much rather watch a game of (American) football. And those insanely annoying vuvuzela horns don’t exactly add to the fun!

So, at times my mind drifts off, and yesterday I started to wonder. What type of underwear are those soccer players actually wearing underneath the soccer shorts…?

In the match between the US and Slovenia I noticed that the US players wear Nike Pro underwear.

Soccer star from the US, Landon Donovan, wears NIKE Pro

The team that took home the trophy in the end, Spain, naturally wear Adidas underwear – their official gear sponsor:

Spanish soccer tema wear Adidas men's underwear

And by now we’ve established that at least the Italian national soccer team wears those very attractive Dolce and Gabbana Calcio briefs. Oh, and D&G seems to have an endless supply of fresh video snippets from the steamy locker room photo shoot. The latest D&G Calcio behind-the-scenes video can be seen at the bottom of the post…(you’re welcome).

And remember, Vanity Fair gave us a hint that Christiano Ronaldo likes his Armani trunks. Yet, somehow I doubt he wears those on the pitch.

In general, I am sure professional (European) soccer players wear all sorts of underwear from sports briefs and boxer briefs to those high-tech (and non-flattering) compression shorts.

In the US I guess it’s the same, though athletic supporters (jockstraps) are still common for guys to wear when playing football or baseball.

But what about when you go to the gym? Or when you go running?

Do you wear a special kind of breathable sports underwear? Or do you just not care and wear regular cotton-based underwear? Or maybe you’re a good old-fashioned jockstrap man?

Myself? I always wear a lightweight brief, typically made from a stretchy and supportive nylon/lycra fabric blend, like the Calvin Klein Tech Active Hip Brief.

So guys, the question is: What underwear do you wear for sports activities?

Thanks for participating in the poll, here’s the new Dolce & Gabbana Calcio video :)
