A new Kickstarter underwear project has appeared on our radar in the previous week. And as lovers of great underwear we feel we must share this with you all so that the guys behind the Danish underwear startup, Organic Basics, can get the funding they need to succeed in supplying men everywhere with great-fitting, proper quality organic undies.
These guys are passionated about about bringing you underwear in a sustainable and convenient manner. Part of their concept is to allow their customers to subscribe to an automated service where they send you new undies on a regular basis. So if browsing for undies is something of a chore for you, this might just the solution.
The design of the boxer brief prototype is simple. No logos, no eye-catching details as such. This is subtle, clean, timeless underwear for everyday wear. We all have a need a for underwear like that, no matter how much we love a wide variety of underwear styles.
Hopefully down the line, the Organic Basics guys will expand their range of designs and cuts, but to get there they need our help.
So go check out the different Kickstarter reward packages which start at a very reasonable $25 USD (if you want a pair of undies). That’ll get you a pair of Organic Basics boxer briefs and a pair of socks of similar quality. Not too shabby.

We would like to introduce you guys to a new skilled underwear photographer that we will be following in the future.
His name is Armando Adajar and he is a professional photographer based in San Diego, California. He has completed a specialized program in visual arts, digital photography and also studied fashion photography at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.
His photography focuses on men’s fitness, men’s underwear, and men’s swimwear. Just recently, he teamed up with 15 local and international brands of underwear/swimwear which his models used during the shoot.
And we have pics from that shoot for you below!
Winter? Who wants to think about winter when it’s only just spring!?
Well, Body Art for one… Lately they’ve been dropping previews from their upcoming Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, and the guys over at www.deadgoodundies.com were kind enough to share their video preview with us.
For this collection Body Art is sticking to their daring designs with their signature see-through looks. It’s definitely worth a look!
From machinery to mineral fuel and electronics to automobiles, German engineering is in high demand around the world. While not the largest export in volume, one of Germany’s best, however, is its underwear. I recently tried styles from two brands influenced by German engineering, Manstore and Olaf Benz, both of which are sold on deadgoodundies.com. (Although I’ve seen some pieces from Olaf Benz on American websites, Deadgoodundies carries a much broader selection.) True – there are plenty of briefs from the United States and other countries, made of distinct fabrics and featuring distinct styling, there is something about the German engineering in these briefs that set them apart.
This will be a two-part review starting with the MANstore Retro brief. We will post the Olaf Benz review same time next week. So check back in next Thursday to get our thoughts on this brief as well.
Although the brand name, Manstore, makes me think of a website where I have to confirm that I’m over 18 before I enter, it is actually a well established underwear line. Their offerings, however, are definitely adult rated. I tried one of its tamer styles, the Manstore Retro Brief. The brief features retro styling with contrast piping around the waistband and seams, but the low-rise cut is particularly modern. The brief also features full coverage in the back. The combination of the retro and the modern is very flattering. I wish, however, that the pouch were a little more contoured and comfortable.
The brief is made of a 92% polyester/8% elastane blend that felt a little more rubbery than I would have preferred; although the brief is very light and thin and featured sort of a cool sheen, it didn’t feel completely soft against my skin for some reason. Also, the color – brown with tan contrast – wasn’t my favorite. That said, I liked that there was no pretense behind the synthetic fabric other than the sexy look and feel.
|Style and look?||Low cut brief featuring unique retro styling and a distinct fabric.|
|Suitable for?||Relaxed environments; date nights; being seen.|
|Fit and quality?||Low-cut with a comfortable pouch; good quality polyester/elastane blend|
|Is the price right?||Approximately $41.77 which seems a little high.|
|Best thing about it?||The retro styling updated with a modern cut and fabric.|

It’s been a while since we’ve had a look at some fresh new underwear brands. And just today an e-mail popped into our inbox letting us know about a new Scandinavian underwear brand, Alexander COBB®. Based out of Copenhagen, Denmark, this brand shares roots with interesting Danish men’s underwear makers, such as JBS – the brand that recently teamed up with soccer super star, Christiano Ronaldo, to form the very successful sub-brand, CR7.
Now, however, there’s new guy in town. So what is this Alexander COBB brand all about? (Feel free to skip to the video and pictures below).
The Alexander COBB® men’s underwear collection comes in a range of body hugging boxers and boy leg cuts in a wide range of colors and patterns. The European quality waist band of each pair features the Alexander COBB logo and is padded for added comfort. The undies seem luxurious and appropriate for wardrobes of every contemporary guy from boyish trendsetter to the more confident and sophisticated man.
In terms of fabric we are looking at a blend of cotton and elastin in a range contemporary cuts in a number of limited edition prints. Each Alexander COBB® garment carries the signature of the Scandinavian designer who is known for his award-winning style and patterns are the patterns are exclusive to his collection, so you will not find them anywhere else.
The symbol for Alexander COBB® is the Koi – Japanese for carp and homophone for affection or love. Koi represents love and friendship and is synonymous with different elements in the collection – color, symbols, style and cut.
The Alexander COBB® men’s underwear range includes slip ones, trunks, boxer shorts and boxer long, and comes in 4 sizes (S, M, L, and XL). Each pair is made with designer quality elastic band, 92 percent cotton, and 8 percent Lycra.
A pair of average Alexander COBB briefs (called “slip” on their website) will set you back approximately $21 USD. Check out the entire range over at webshop.alexandercobb.com.
Enjoy the video and pics, guys.

We recently received a bunch of new photos featuring some of the underwear maker’s latest ranges – which as always carry their signature look of very little fabric.
The masuline model, DW Chase (photographer is Cedric Terrel) is actually an excellent choice for such skimpy underwear. He succeeds in making it look less scary to wear those tiny undies, which include styles such as a c-string, the lateral thong, the rift bikini, the kini and the invisible trunk.
Head over to www.petitq.net to see more and find a retailer near you.
Have a great weekend, guys!

Independent film director Rob Williams is as prolific a filmmaker as the Croota brand of men’s underwear is about releasing new ranges! And in his highly anticipated seventh film, “Out To Kill,” which recently wrapped filming in Tampa, FL, he prominently featured Croota underwear and swim wear on some Adonis-like model/actors.
And we’ve got the behind the scenes pics – see below!
The trio of characters that don Croota swim wear in this poolside scene are Lee Williams, Christopher John Cutillo and Nicolas Burgos.
“Out To Kill” is a gay murder mystery about a private investigator who wrangles himself into investigating the murder of one of his hot new neighbors when he moves into a beautiful Tampa loft complex. More information on the film and other Guest House Films productions can be found at www.guesthousefilms.com.
Croota’s featured low-cut swim wear includes its “Surfers Paradise” range in both dark purple and beige, and the hipster-cut “Austar,” which is available in khaki and white. Each range of swim trunks is made of 85% nylon and 15% spandex, which combine for a UPF 50, fade-resistant fabric. Each range retails for $24.50 USD, and all are available at www.croota.com.
