So, the hearts of underwear fans from around the world skipped a beat a couple of weeks ago as David Beckham finally announced his plans to launch his very own men’s underwear brand.
Not that it came as too much of a surprise, though, it’s been a recurring subject on the rumor mill for ages.
Just as you guys, we are extremely excited about what Beckham’s underwear collection will entail – will it just be briefs, trunks, and boxers, or will he venture into more exotic cuts as well? And will the undies cost?
We’ll just have to wait and see.
We are absolutely positive that Beckham will be massively successful with his new business adventure. He could easily become the Björn Borg of this decade.
We hear that the Beckham undies will be available in stores this fall and that – naturally – the soccer star will once again act as chief underwear model.
So in celebration and anticipation of Beckham’s return to male underwear modeling we’ve gathered some of his best work so far for Emporio Armani. If it’s any indication of what’s to come, we’re all in for a real treat.
Today we bring you more exquisite underwear sightings from the Singapore 2011 Men’s Fashion Week.
We admit it. We miss the days of Beckham and Ronaldo.
Anyway, even though Armani’s underwear ads are a bit on the dull side these days, the same thing certainly can’t be said about their recent men’s underwear runway fashion show.
And there can be little doubt that Armani makes some of the finest, high-end underwear we’ve ever come across – regardless of whichever hunky sports star currently endorses them.
Feast your eyes on some of the most classy briefs and boxer briefs you’ll see this season. See pics below the video.
The Singapore 2011 Men’s Fashion Week was the place to be this past week as some of the world’s most powerful and trend-setting men’s underwear brands took to the runways to show off their latest creations.
Today and the next six days we’ll be bringing you all the best photos and video footage from each of these runway shows.
Just sit back and be inspired.
First up is Skinxwear, a brand we touched base with a few times in 2010.
It’s funny, this brand seemed to had disappeared for a while but now they certainly are back with a strong, new men’s underwear collection. One which is obviously influenced by a Scottish kilt fetish theme.
Thanks to SuperAdrianMe.com for sharing these and many more pics from the Singapore Men’s Fashion Week with the rest of us!
See the runway pics below the video!
You know, I had almost forgotten the fact Rafael Nadal was new face body of Armani underwear.
Are they not bringing out the major billboards for the tennis super star turned pro underwear model or what? To the best of my knowledge, only a couple of Rafael/Armani ads have been published so far.
Maybe they’re holding on to them until this summer’s grand slams to ensure maximum exposure?
Anyway, a few weeks ago a bunch of behind the scenes pics surfaced on the web featuring Rafa hard at work posing in those classic Armani undies.
We guess they’ll have to do for now, then.
FYI, Armani briefs are anywhere between USD $36 and a whopping $54 a pop. Get your Armani Underwear at the Armani web shop.
Luckily, the pics below are all for free.
Rafa Nadal Shows Us His Undies!
Following the foot steps of David Beckham and Christiano Ronaldo the world’s number one tennis player has become the new face, or body, of Giorgio. And we get to see him pose in a hot pair of underwear. The 24 year old is the first tennis player after two footballers to dawn the underwear for Armani fans worldwide. Maybe the new underwear will fix his constant wedgie problem.
A library in Illinois was featuring a lecture entitled “Unmentionables: The Rise and Fall of Ladies’ Underwear”. Originally this was a women only event; however several men protested the discrimination so it was opened to both genders. Two men showed up! I bet we could have packed the room for a men’s underwear lecture.
The Underwear Battle
How many pairs of underwear can you put on in 30 seconds? There has been a battle for this record. A year ago Todd DeFazio of Pittsburg radio station Star 100.7 held the record with 7 pair. A few weeks latter a fellow DJ, Sean Kelly, at the station beat the record with 9 pair. DeFazio then defended his record by besting Kelly with 12 pair. The new record is held by a woman, Olivia Miller, with 15 pair in 30 seconds. Who keeps these records? The Universal Record Database. Can you beat it?
Running Naked Man
By now the pictures gone viral of Chen Weiwei have probably already been seen by everyone. But let’s give them another glance.
Weiwei was waiting 4 hours in line to buy tickets for his family and himself to travel to their hometown in Henan China. However people were unfairly being allowed to cut in line which ultimately cost him the few remaining tickets. In an angry protest against the inequalities and harsh realities of Chinas train system, Weiwei went to the train station managers office and stripped to his underwear and they were nice underwear, too.
And fortunately for all of us he was captured by a press photographer. He has since been dubbed the “Running Naked Man”.
Julia Aiken, a former professional snowboarder, has started her own business, Toast Heated Clothes, a line of heated underwear. The long underwear is designed with a series of pockets where you can insert hand warmers, three in the shirt and one in the pants. The idea is to heat the core and thus your whole body will be warm. I hope she designs a heated jock soon.
The show Glee is returning following the Super Bowl and Matthew Morrison has revealed a little secret. Apparently one of the cast members will be singing for the very first time so to calm his nerves the students strip to their underwear. Being that these are supposed to be high school kids I don’t know if I should be excited. I may have to give Glee another try. Maybe this time I’ll make it past 5 minutes.
Happy Australia Day!
January 26th was Australia Day and CockSox is one of the many Australian Underwear brands celebrating their booming business. They released the Carnivore, a leopard print fabric, and the Woodstock, a paisley inspired design. And to celebrate the release they were going for 20% off. American companies remember this for the 4th of July!
The Week in Underwear Crime:
Once again we have criminals running around or sitting around in their underwear. I think underwear can bring out our wild side at times, so wear your undies with caution, men.
Wikileaker Stripped to His Underwear.
Bradley Manning, the alleged Wikileaker, has been placed on suicide watch against the recommendation of the jail’s own psychiatrist. What this entails is kind of harsh, he’s forced to stay in his cell with no time outside, his glasses were taken away and he has been stripped down to his underwear. I hope he has some a warm comfortable pair. There have also been reports of his having a “rug burn” from a horrible blanket and no pillow to use, as well as no contact with the media.
Car Surfing Underwear Guy
A man in Sacramento, California, apparently went crazy according to witnesses. 40 year old Arthur Derby jumped on top of a passing SUV carrying a family and took off his clothes remaining in just his underwear and tried to open up the vehicles doors. One witness said “he was pissed” as began beating the cars hood and shouting obscenities. I kind of want to car surf in undies myself now, minus the going crazy.
Handcuffed to Pole in Underwear
Being handcuffed to a pole in underwear may be some men’s fantasy, however this was no love play. Canadian police found a 24 year old man handcuffed to a telephone pole in his underwear on a cold winter night. He was on his way home when he was hit on the head, thrown in the back of a van, robbed and stripped then left handcuffed to a pole. But the man refuses to neither tell police who did this nor give any motive they may have had. Sounds kind of fishy, he may have more questions to come.
PICTURE OF THE WEEK!
Rafa Nadal in Armani’s new 2011 spring collection ad. Armani has been a leader in finding and showcasing underwear models. They hit it big, beyond massive, with Beckham will Nadal fill those briefs? Time will tell but either way we will enjoy the moment.
You KNOW you’ve been waiting for the Rafael Nadal Armani underwear ads to published.
And they will officially in February – but we’ve got them now!
Just yesterday the brand new underwear pics featuring the Spanish tennis star surfaced on the web and spread like wildfire.
There’s even some behind the scenes photos as well!
And what great timing, as Nadal is having a succesful run at the Australian Open at the moment.
What do you think? Will Rafa be as successful as David Beckham or Christiano Ronaldo?
Get your Armani Underwear at the Armani web shop.
PS. I’m sure more pics will follow over the next few weeks. Rest assured that we will publish them all here on the blog.
Guys’ Underwear Blog is kicking off 2011 in style!
I’d like to introduce my friend and guest blogger, Braxton – a true underwear fan who has his finger on the pulse of the world of men’s underwear.
He’ll do regular reports on the latest underwear fashion news, gossip and rumors – and boy has he good some juicy stuff for us today. One of the top stories has got to tennis super star, Rafael Nadal, being named the new face and body of Armani men’s underwear.
Read all about that and more below.
Happy 2011 my fellow underwear lovers! I’m Braxton, your Underwear Reporter for the Guys Underwear Blog. I am going to be bringing you a weekly news recap of what happening in the world of men’s underwear as well as a Picture of the Week and other noteworthy tidbits you should be aware of. Let’s take a look at what’s going on in the world of underwear at the top of 2011.
As the temperature is getting colder inmates at Tent City in southwest Phoenix are being given pink thermal underwear by the Maricopa County Sheriffs Department. I know this is supposed to be a humiliation thing for the men, which I personally thing is ridiculous, but I want to know something. How do I get a pair?
And guess who’s dating an underwear model? Clay Aiken! Why can’t I get an underwear model? Apparently Aiken’s new man is Jeff Walters who is an actor and part time 2(x)ist Underwear model (see the pic above). Way to go Clay, you’ve finally done something I admire.
There is work being done now to promote a new underwear line called Woodiees. It’s a play on words since the underwear is actually made from wood pulp. It’s an eco friendly design from the company eco2wear. They are rounding up celebrity support and hope to soon have these undies from trees on you soon.
The Southern Columbia town of Neiva had its tenth annual Underwear Marathon on December 31, 2010. Damn I missed it! What a great event, next year I may have to plan a visit to Columbia. The people of this area say goodbye to the previous year by running a 5K marathon half naked. Great idea.
Swiss Bank UBS has handed it’s employees a dress code that even dictates what kind of underwear they should wear. Seriously! Regarding men’s underwear the code says “underwear should only be made from high quality fabrics, easily washable but also remain in good condition after several washings”, and “your underwear should be functional, and shouldn’t be visible through your clothes, nor should anyone be able to guess what’s underneath them”. So if you’re not allowed to let them show why do they need to be high quality? Poor UBS customers, they don’t get to see any bulges nor jockstrap lines on their tellers.
Raphael Nadal has been named Armani’s next underwear model. Armani has a great reputation for putting athletes in underwear. Look at past models David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Speaking of Beckham, he has recently ended his contract as front man for Armani style but he has in no way left the world of underwear. To the contrary he will soon be coming out with his own underwear line under Armani! Look for that soon.
Weekly Underwear Crime:
A man in Lynden, a city in Washington State near the Canadian border, has been charged by Federal Prosecutors for shining a powerful spotlight into a helicopter cockpit blinding the pilot. When Federal agents showed up to question the man he came out of his parked car in nothing but his underwear and gave a full confession.
Google is being sued by a Japanese woman who’s underwear is seen hanging on her clothes line outside her home. She said Google should be more sensitive toward her undergarments. She is suing for 600,000 yen, roughly 7,000 dollars. I hope this doesn’t spark an onslaught of frivolous lawsuits. One man in Germany appeared on the street view at his home naked and he didn’t sue although his picture has been removed.
And of course there were like a thousand people who were caught hiding things in their underwear. I won’t get into that! Well happy new year men and I look forward to bringing you the underwear news through out 2011 – BRAXTON
Picture of the week (above):

Emporio Armani has found themselves a m-a-j-o-r attention magnet in soccer star turned male underwear model, Christiano Ronaldo.
Their latest video, which is in fact a promo for Aarmani Jeans, features Christiano Ronaldo walking around in a pair of black Armani briefs.
FYI, Armani briefs like the ones worn by Ronaldo are approximately US$20 at HisRoom.
The video has only been out for a few days, yet it has been viewed more than 600,000 times! It’s another score for Armani.
The video appears to have been shot at the same occation as the promo pictures which were released in June.
