This past week the most predominant story from the world of men’s underwear has got to be the release of Lionel Messi’s much-anticipated Dolce & Gabbana campaign pics. And to the joy of undies fans everywhere this set of photos included a number of fine undies shots – which we bring you below.
Now, a quick search through GUB’s sports-stars-turned-underwear-models archives will show you that this is not the first time the Argentinian soccer star has channeled his inner undies model. A few years ago, Messi was in fact the official
crotch face for the brand, Lody.
As he has risen to international sports super stardom, the FC Barcelona forwarder sure has traded up and apparently now only wears the best of the best when it comes to men’s fashion. Mind you, a pair of D&G briefs typically start around $50!
Anyway, we can only applaud his continued efforts to show the likes of David Beckham and Spanish soccer league rival, Christiano Ronaldo, that just as he has become the worlds greatest soccer player, he too will take the crown as the world’s hottest underwear model.
Enjoy the pics, guys.
I don’t know what took me so long to finally order a pair of Bluebuck underwear. About a year ago, I found their website and read about how they developed eco-conscious, quality products that look great and feel good. It sounded and looked like a fantastic combination to me – appealing products manufactured in a sustainable way – so I made a mental note to review them one day. And now I find myself sitting at my computer, drinking my morning coffee and wearing a pair of Bluebuck Ben Cohen Boxers.
Bluebuck is an English brand, started in 2010, that uses organic cotton in their lines of briefs, trunks and boxers. To demonstrate the rugged appeal of the brand, their site has several photos of a guy wearing Bluebucks in the outdoors…camping, chopping wood, swimming and just relaxing confidently in his underwear. Because the model doesn’t look too different from your everyday guy (not intimidatingly handsome), it’s probably easy for most of us guys to think “I could see myself wearing that”.
Although I prefer to wear trunks and briefs, I was curious to try their boxers because they looked much more fitted that your usual pair of boxers. Now, the Bluebuck briefs, trunks and boxers also come in a Ben Cohen Special Edition (yep, Ben Cohen the rugby player), where every purchase benefits the anti-bullying work of the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation. So I went ahead and ordered a pair of Ben Cohen Boxers.
What are they like? They’re really comfortable and I like that they’re similar in length and fit to trunks. So there’s a good balance of freedom and containment and the overall look is flattering. Distinguishing features include a 2-button fly and a striped waistband with an antler logo on the front. It bears mentioning that the organic cotton is somewhat thicker than usual, which makes these a good choice except on the hottest days of summer. Great job Bluebuck.
|Style and look?||An organic cotton boxer that looks and feels similar to a trunk.|
|Suitable for?||Suitable for everyday wear except on very hot days.|
|Fit and quality?||The fit is just a little looser than a trunk. Durable material and stitching.|
|Is the price right?||These sell for about $33 on U.S. sites, which is about right for the quality fabric and stitching.|
|Best thing about it?||The superb comfort.|

David Beckham has done it – created his own line of men’s underwear together with Swedish fashion retailer H&M.
Now, Christiano Ronaldo too will team up with a Scandinavian fashion maker to design his very own range of men’s underwear. Danish underwear maker JBS, is the lucky brand who snatched up the soccer star. If you don’t know JBS, you can read our bio on the brand here. Fun fact – the brand recently also launched a celebrity underwear range with tennis starlet, Caroline Wozniacki.
Is is just us, or does Ronaldo seem to do everything Beckham does? First, Beckham became an Armani underwear model. Not long after, Ronaldo too graced Armani underwear ads everywhere.
And now this.
We shall not complain. All we hope now is that fellow sports super star and Armani underwear model, Rafael Nadal, will make the same move into men’s underwear fashion.
Anyway, according to JBS, Ronaldo will be deeply involved in the design and production of the underwear range, which will include several types of undies and socks. The plan is that Ronaldo will release a new range every year.
We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us. Though we liked Beckham’s H&M undies, they never really rocked our world as much as we had hoped. For that, they were simply too mainstream.
We’ll let you guys know when we know more about the release date for the Ronaldo undies.
For now, we’ll have to suffice with what we’ve seen so far from the Portuguese soccer god.
Actually, this is hardly news anymore, but David Beckham continues to release new promo pics of his H&M bodywear range.
The pics are fine (not Armani hot, but we’ll take it). Luckily, the underwear is great – especially the trunks. And of course the soccer star’s bodywear range contains a long list of other items such as t-shirts and other loungewear styles.
We recommend you check out our extensive review of the David Beckham trunks if you want to know more. And FYI, the trunks are $14.95 USD. Briefs are just $12.95 USD. That’s H&M for ya, it’s cheap. Go to www.hm.com to see more.
Anyway, we gathered some of the latest and best promo shots featuring Mr. Beckham.
Enjoy guys – and have a great Sunday.
Rob Wilson, who recently made his debut as The Price is Right’s first-ever male model, visited MensUnderwearStore.com for his second photo shoot with the underwear retailer last Tuesday and Wednesday.
And we have massive picture post featuring the celebrity spawn in an array of wonderful men’s underwear!
At the photo shoot, Rob had time to answer a few question about his new-found fame, saying his schedule has been a lot busier since he began taping ‘The Price is Right’, but that he enjoys the variety. “It’s exciting to work in front of the audience, my energy feeds off of them,” said Rob. “It’s not all posing which is great because it’s kind of like a mixture between modeling and acting.”
“It’s nothing too crazy, but I do get recognized more,” Rob saide, “especially when I’m at the gym for some reason.” Rob, originally from Boston, now lives in Los Angeles as he pursues his career as a model and actor.
The photo shoot featured Rob in various designer underwear, swimwear and loungewear available at MensUnderwearStore.com including Emporio Armani, 2(x)ist, C-IN2 and Diesel.
Photos of Rob will continue to be launched on the pages of MensUnderwearStore.com and he will also appear in the MensUnderwearStore.com 2012 Holiday Gift Guide.
Former International Jock underwear model to appear on “The Price is Right”. See his undies pics here.
Forget Netflix, guys – this week you should be tuning in to CBS.
Why? Well, former International Jock mens underwear and swimwear model Rob Wilson is appearing this week on “The Price is Right” on CBS-TV.
Rob, the first male model to ever appear on the show, is an up-and-coming actor and has done several highly successful photo shoots for International Jock. His appearances on International Jock’s website have always generated a tremendous amount of customer enthusiasm so we’re sure that you’ll enjoy these previously unreleased photographs of Rob wearing Calvin Klein, Puma, 2(x)ist, Spanx for Men and more.
Other celebrities who have begun their careers modeling underwear for International Jock include Justin Deeley, Alan Ritchman, Justin Gaston, James Ellis and Dante Spencer.
International Jock – one of our favorite online stores – is one of the world’s largest online retailers of men’s underwear, swimwear, jeans and more and has been delivering the best in men’s fashion since 2000.
Now, enjoy the pics.
Congratulations to Novak Djokovic for reaching his 3rd straight US Open final!
He really is our favorite player on the ATP tour. Always in good spirit, always having fun – and he plays like a true fighter.
Anyway, just as fellow tennis superstar, Rafael Nadal, Novac has let his inner underwear model out for the world to enjoy.
Back in 2009 he strutted down the runway in nothing but a skimpy pair of black briefs at a fashion show in Montreal, Canada, ahead of the Rogers Cup ATP event that same year.
So, as our treat to you, here’s a few shots from that event. We even found a video clip that shows just what kind of showman the Serb is.
You are welcome.
Good news to our followers down under!
Last week Celebrity Apprentice star Didier Cohen was announced as the new face of the Australian men’s underwear label, MensFit.
We admit, we hadn’t spend much time on MensFit before this story broke. But rest assured, that is going to change now.
A self-confessed ‘jack of all trades’, the LA-born DJ, model, actor and television star will appear in a new campaign to launch the brand’s new range.
And we’ve already a few pics for you guys to enjoy.
Just another reason to love Australia and their men’s trend-setting underwear fashion industry!
In fact, MensFit has been a household name since it launched in 2003, with past faces (and bodies) of the brand including Neighbours star Blair McDonough and X-Factor host Luke Jacobz.
MensFit offers an extensive range of long and short-legged trunks, briefs, boxerbriefs and jockstraps, all available in a range of colors, prints and patterns, with prices ranging between $15.99 and $32.99.
We just took a look at their portfolio over at www.mensfit.com, and we actually really dig their designs. We must try them out soon.
Enjoy the pics, guys.
Unless you’ve been you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that faded Hollywood star, Mario Lopez, recently launched his very own range of men’s underwear, wittingly called Rated M.
Well, here at Guys’ Underwear Blog we are not sure what to think of Mr. Lopez’ underwear endeavors. The undies look a bit… old-fashioned.
But hey, props to him for making men’s underwear the talk of the town this past week. It’s clear that Mario Lopez sure knows how to market his new Rated M range.
A few days ago, Mario was a guest on the Ellen show and was “forced” to strip and show off his new underwear – to the obvious delight of the women in the audience.
You can watch the video clip below – it has already gone viral, attracting more than 380,000 views. You can also see a few pics of the new range below the clip.
Now all Mr. Lopez has to do is go back to his designers and teach them the words “low rise” – that should help bring sexy back to this range.
He finally revealed his long awaited men’s underwear range, the almighty David Beckham!
How long we have waited for this exclusive new line, and granted, the promotion material is hot as always as Beckham shows off all the new undies on his own fine body.
He’s certainly no tease like certain others (Yes, Tim Tebow, we’re looking at you).
But still, is it just us, or is the underwear kind of… so so?
Not a bad word about undies from H&M, though – don’t forget, we’ve liked them a lot in the past.
The underwear just doesn’t come off as exclusive and enticingly hot as when David Beckham modeled for Armani. But we guess that’s a given – H&M, after all, is discount undies and shouldn’t be compared to Armani.
The new H&M Beckham Bodywear collection includes 9 pieces, many of which you can see below.
“Collectively with my design team we spent time working on the feel, fit and style to ensure the product is not only something I would wear but one which I would be proud to put my name to” says Beckham.
This first instalment, which will be available in stores on online from February 2, marks an ongoing partnership between David Beckham and H&M, and will develop seasonally.
Hopefully the range will evolve into something a little more revolutionary. But who are we kidding, we’ll be buying these undies anyway. The Beckham brand commands us!
