2(x)ist has come out strong with their fall 2011 introductions, including the new SPORT range.
So, we gathered a bunch of promo pics of all the available styles, which include the well-known No-Show brief, trunk, and jockstrap.
Made from Soft-Fle(x) cotton, the SPORT range is inspired by the frenzied pace of action sports like motocross and Freestyle BMX.
For the SPORT ad campaign, 2(X)IST heads back into the gym with André Ziehe, seen working out in a number of the collection’s silhouettes, which include the No-Show Brief, No-Show Trunk, Sport Brief, Tank Top, and the return of the Jock Strap.
The 2(x)ist SPORT range is on sale over at Guys’ Underwear favorite underwear store UnderBriefs. The SPORT brief and jockstrap are all just $15 USD.
2(x)st has also released a hot new video featuring the SPORT sport brief. You can see this below the pics.
Many of you may not be familiar with Danish men’s underwear maker, JBS. With today’s pictures hopefully that’ll change.
JBS Underwear has been around for decades – more than 70 years in fact – which is quite an achievement in an industry where most of the major and popular brands have been around for no longer than 10-15 years.
The Danish men’s underwear label actually was quite the gutsy brand back in the 60s and 70s stirring up a number of fashion controversies, such as the introduction of an unisex undies range amidst the sexual revolution in the 1970s.
Nowadays, JBS still can cause attract attention. A recent ranchy television ad featuring half-naked women wearing traditional JBS men’s underwear has been seen by millions on Youtube.
Though JBS’ marketing tactics may portray the brand as controversial and edgy, their designs are fairly mainstream. However, their basic underwear range, which is featured in these photos, is top of the class when it comes to classic, traditional men’s briefs and boxer briefs.
Tighty whitie lovers, who have not jumped on the low-rise-sexy-pouch-enhancing wagon, will love these undies from JBS.
JBS underwear is hard to come by online in the U.S., but you can check out where the brand is sold over at www.jbs-underwear.com.
Ergowear is a men’s underwear success story – and we love those!
Following the successful launch in June of their antimicrobial InCopper range, Chilean underwear brand Ergowear is continuing with that success by introducing new color lines for its MAX Contrast briefs and boxers, which have already sold out twice!
Blue and Red are the newest vibrant colors added to the collection of ergonomically-designed underwear that come in various color combinations (Blue/White; White/Blue; Red/White; White/Red), with the additional availability of Black as a color option. These color additions are a lead-in to upcoming color options for Ergowear’s PLUS (Pouch Lifted and UnSeamed) line.
The MAX Contrast line includes features such as the 3-dimensional pouch and Ergowear’s signature 1.5-inch waistband.
Ergowear MAX briefs and boxers range between $22.60 and $24.80 USD and are available in Blue, Red and Black at www.ergowear.com.
And today we deliver the first of hopefully many batches of Andrew Christian underwear photography.
Today’s focal point is the updated Almost Naked range that was introduced in the underwear video that we posted a few days ago.
The new Almost Naked Infinity underwear, we are told, has the same fantastic fit, feel and fabric of the traditional Almost Naked line, but has been upgraded with soft golden metallic elastic….the signature element of this new line.
Andrew Christian tells us that the new golden elastic has a superior stretch that won’t cinch your waistline too tight, which in turn reduces the appearance of “muffin tops”. The result is a slimmer looking waistline. Nice.
We’ve spotted Andrew Christian Almost Naked Inifinty briefs around the net for $25 USD.
We recommend you get it over at Guys’ Underwear Blog favorite store, International Jock.
With that, enjoy the photos.
It’s time for some fresh inspiration, guys!
And lucky for all of us, so many interesting up-and-coming men’s underwear brands reach out to us all the time.
Today we have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to No Limits. I like that name. It promises great ambition.
Insired by great looks and quality, No Limits is crafted and designed in Europe. And they promise us that we will all be styling with the most comfortable, sexy and durable underwear ever. See, ambition!
Now, while scanning across their web shop I noticed a lot of special and not-so-mainstream designs. The range of cuts available is very broad and includes bikini briefs, thongs, mesh undies, regular briefs, trunks, as well as swimwear. Impressive.
In terms of price, choice is broad as well, with briefs ranging from USD $17 to $22.
Check out the photos below to get an idea of No Limits’ designs, check out the photos below and go to www.nolimits.com to shop.
Andrew Christian – it’s been too long!
In the future we’ll be working on bringing you more Andrew Christian content. Especially, if AC keeps bringing us hot video footage like the stuff below.
And after all, it is a best-selling, high-end men’s underwear brand. Also, we hear that their jockbrief styles are among the best-selling in the business.
Today, though, we’re bringing you three new Andrew Christian underwear promotion videos that feature primarily regular briefs. Specifically, the videos offer a sexy preview of the Almost Naked and NanoFit collections.
FYI, a pair of NanoFit briefs is $25 USD. The Almost Naked collection includes many different brief cuts ranging between $23 and $32.
Check out the entire collections and buy your own over at www.andrewchristian.com.
With that, enjoy a few minutes of reality escape with the videos below.
The recent resurrection of my interest in boxer briefs and trunks has made me quite keen on trying out aussieBum’s new Freedom boxer range.
I just LOVE the look of that trunk! It’s kinda old school with the buttoned fly and lack of waistband. In many ways it’s a more down-to-earth alternative to the FLAME trunk which we reviewed a few weeks ago – and loved, too.
But more importantly, it’s made from a micro modal fabric mix – my absolute favorite when it comes to underwear fabrics.
It’s be far the softest, high-end fabric type out there. Specifically, the Freedom Boxer range is made from 87 % modal with 13 % Elastane to add that extra stretch.
The new aB Freedom trunk is $25 USD, which is not unusual for modal undies. Check it out over at www.aussiebum.com.
Look out for my review in the weeks to come – and enjoy the pics.
It may sound like a chemistry formula, but rather, it could be the formula to some hot undies!
FU e=fu8 Underwear was officially launched in June 2011. FU is the actual first name of the designer.
e=fu8 is the designer’s own orgasmic (Fu’s words, not mine), exclusive, trademarked formula for the pleasure principle. ”Life is short; Maximize your pleasure principle.”
He wanted to make undergarments that are well made, fun, stylish and luxurious, with an emphasis on clean lines and less is more minimalism. The current collection is pure white with royal blue lettering for a nautical, streamlined look and feel.
Cuts available include briefs and boxer briefs – and they are all made in Manhattan’s Garment District. Fu has let me know that more cuts will be added soon.
Briefs sell at $25.88 and boxer briefs at $28.88 over at www.fuunderwear.com.
Now, who doesn’t like a great pair of traditional, timeless undies like these?
Today I am reviewing a completely new brand, Skivvies!
Actually, the brand is a spin-off adventure by one of the largest online men’s underwear stores, Skivviesmensunderwear.com.
The announcement of the new Skivvies underwear range had us all pretty excited here at GUB.
Why? Well, the online underwear retailers get their hands on more underwear from more brands than most avid undies fans like you and I. So I’m thinking, they must know have the best hands-on knowledge of what great underwear should look like, feel like, and cost.
About a month ago the new range was released and included a number of different trunk and brief cuts, most of which were in the bulge-enhancing category.
Smart move, because from what we hear, this category is by far the fastest-growing category in the underwear business. Recession may be upon us, but guys around the globe will apparently prioritize an impressive bulge over all else.
Naturally, we approve of this development, LOL.
Anyway, I was fortunate enough to get a sample of the Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk for a review here on the blog.
It’s what I would call an aggressive bulge-enhancer suitable for everyday wear. And I don’t mean aggressive in any negative way. I’m simply referring to the technology employed to lift your package up and out. A technology that in no way disappoints.
Skivvies makes use of an elastic pocket-type container into which you fit your penis and balls – much like profile-enhancing undies from major brands like aussieBum and Andrew Christian.
Skivvies’ approach to adding lift is very effective and will have men of all “sizes” appear like well-endowed Adonises below the waist.
I was happy to notice that this lift feature, as well as the overall feel of the trunk, was surprisingly comfortable, which in no small way is probably due to the soft and stretchy 93% Polyester, 7% Spandex fabric mix.
The fabric and production quality is fine, and I would recommend that you follow the washing instruction (cold wash only) to preserve stretch, fit, and color the longest.
Overall, this is a very nice and satisfactory pair of underwear with amazing lift capabilities.
The Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk indeed makes for a promising start for the Skivvies brand.
See my final grade and more details – including where to buy it – in the review box below the pictures.
|Style and look?||The Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk has the look of a traditional low-rise trunk but with a few distinct details. One, obviously, is the massive bulge you’ll be sporting and which is framed very visibly by color-contrasting stitching. Another key feature is the center seam in the back which helps accentuate your buttocks.|
|Suitable for?||The trunk can easily be worn for everyday activities due to the stretchy fabrics and non-chafing pouch pocket. Most men would probably save bulge-enhancing underwear like this for festive occasions where you want to make an impression, for instance underneath a tight pair of jeans. That is one hot look!|
|Fit and quality?||The fit was absolutely fine. Besides proper sizing (a size M for my 32/33 inch waist was a perfect match), naturally the Polyester/Spandex mix makes for a very forgiving and adaptive fabric mix. The production and fabric quality seem fine for a mid-range product like this.|
|Is the price right?||Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk is $28 USD. This is fair price for a mid-range product. This is bulge-enhancing underwear that everyone can afford.|
|Best thing about it?||The well-mastered pouch pocket that gets lift job done in comfortable and impressive manner.|
A well-deserved four star grade puts the ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk in class with many huge brands that have been in the enhancement business for ages. Skivvies has done well with its first range of profile-enhancing undies, and we can’t wait to see what the Skivvies team comes up with next.
This is the time of year when the Australian underwear and swimwear maker releases hot new promotion videos featuring the newest swim wear lines.
We’ll say this again, them Aussies know how to shoot a promo video like no other. Wow.
Just take a look at the two selected videos below for the GLAZE and VARSITY swimwear ranges. They practically had me ordering those swim briefs and trunks before the video had ended.
How is it that they are able to convince me that I’ll be looking like those swimwear models just by putting on the same swimwear?? Well, anyway, regardless of your shape and size it never hurts to wear something as über stylish as a pair of aussieBum’s.
FYI, VARSITY swim trunks are $53, GLAZE swim briefs are $47. Both can be bought over at www.aussiebum.com.
