We like the way these pictures obviously are meant to reflect the brand’ s association with Swiss culture and design. It really gives off that exclusive underwear look. And it’s good thing that it does, too. Diego Barberi trunks are not cheap to come by. $46 USD for a single pair of Swiss bliss undies.
But hey, Rolex is Swiss too, and those watches ain’t cheap either. We like to think the two compare well when it comes to the level of production quality.
Now, when will they start broadening their range to include briefs??
Anyway, enjoy the pics – and go to www.diegobarberi.com to buy the undies.
Our favorite Swiss men’s underwear brand, Deigo Barberi, has just launched their exclusive trunks in seven new colors.
And we’d like to introduce you to the fresh new variants in two m-a-j-a-h picture posts!
We had to split the pictures into two posts because Diego Barberi sent us so many gorgeous pictures and we simply couldn’t fit them all into one post.
Among others, the new colors include “Deer on pink”, “”Edelweiss on light yellow”, “Bear on blackberry red”, “Squirrel on green lemon”, “Gentian on lilac”.
The cut is the well-know trunk with a light push-up effect that we have come to love here on Guys’ Underwear Blog. Fabric-wise it’s a standard 95% Cotton, 5% Lycra with the signature Diego Barberi embroidery.

Enjoy the pics – there will be more tomorrow!
Diego Barberi has been a pleasant addition to growing number of European men’s fashion underwear brands.
When we first tried these Swiss trunks we thought they were the underwear equivalent to a Rolex watch – top quality, pure and simple.
Now sources tell us that Diego Barberi will have a new range out in June! Well, we can’t wait. We hope the brand will dare venture into other cuts like briefs and such.
Anyway, until then we will have to make due with these latest photos featuring some young guys posing in DG trunks.
By the way, the photos were shot by Karim Konrad, a gifted fashion photographer with a special talent for shooting gorgeous pictures of male underwear models. We encourage you to check his site for more amazing men’s underwear photography.
Today I introduce you to a smoking hot new Swiss men’s underwear brand, Diego Barberi.
Actually, credit for discovering Diego Barberi has to go to our great colleagues over at UndiesDrawer.com who broke the story about a month ago.
And what a story! According to UndiesDrawer, the brand came into existence not too long ago in 2010 when four friends from Switzerland and Germany were getting a beer after a long day of skiing in the Swiss Alps.
As they were downing the cold beers, legend has it, they met up with a guy by the exotic name of Diego Barberi. Apparently, the three guys was fascinated with Diego’s personality and especially his name.
After a couple more beers (this is were the really great ideas tend to manifest themselves), the guys decided that it would be absolutely great to create their own underwear label named after this mysterious guy.
A few months later, the Diego Barberi underwear label was a reality – and my interest was sparked.
I became immediately intrigued by the high-end look of the Diego Barberi trunk styles and persuaded them to send me a sample of the Snowflake trunk.
Now knowing what to expect, I was excited to try them out.
Now, I’ll try not to exaggerate, but it’s my honest opinion that this trunk is the underwear equivalent to a Rolex watch – Swiss quaility at its best.
|Style and look||The Diego Barberi Snowflake Trunk is in fact accurately labeled – something which seems to be an increasingly rare event these days. It is a standard trunk cut. As a style choice, this is a trunk which will have any guy feeling comfortable while looking modern and manly in that contemporary, yet slightly safe and mainstream kind of way.
But then again, Diego Barberi seems to know how to add a few destinct features to make this trunk stand out from the crowd. The most important ones include the embroidered snowflake imagery and Diego logo as well as the mildly glistening white waistband and the discretely accentuated pouch design.
|Suitable for?||The Snowflake Trunk is quite low-rise, although not more so than most other trunks out there at the moment. You can easily wear this for all purposes and under all types of jeans and other pants.
It sits in place quite well and is supportive in all the right places – the pouch, leg openings and waist – with little need for adjustments during the day.
Because of that funky, stylish waistband design the Snowflake trunk would work really well with low-rise jeans that allow for a glimpse or two of the top of the waistband.
|Fit and quality?||I wore a size M for a 32 inch waist. The fit was perfect, also due to the stretchiness of the fabric composition. No need to size up or down.
Although it seems like a standard fabric mix, this 95 % cotton / 5 % Lycra seems to above average quality. This also goes for the overall production quality, which is impressive. Somehow you can sense that this underwear is made in Switzerland and not mass-produced in an Asian sweatshop.
|Is the price right?||As almost all European fashion underwear brands, Diego Barberi is not cheap. The Snowflake trunk is about US $41, but that also includes free international shipping.
The trunk is top quality, no doubt, but then, it has to be at this price level. I always say this, but it deserves to be repeated: If you want to stand out and be fashion-forward in the US, high-end European underwear labels is always a safe bet. And I wouldn’t hesitate to put Diego Barberi in that category.
|Best thing about it?||I think the outstanding production quality and overall high-end feel are the defining features of this trunk. I love the Swiss attention to detail. Now all I need is a Rolex to match.|
|Overall grade||★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
The Diego Barberi Snowflake trunk underlines that Europe is able to produce some very attention-grabbing new underwear labels that are definitely able to compete with Australian and American brands… Just not when it comes to price – yet. It will very interesting to follow DB as they expand with briefs and, hopefully, other cuts as well. I suspect DB will become a big name within the world of underwear in no time.
