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.
It’s that time of the week that we love the most here at GUB…
Fan pic day! Yay!
Over the years we have shared a ton of amateur underwear lovers posing in their favorite skivvies. Today we have a new guy showing off his super cool Superman undies. Meet the very fit “Frankie” below.
And I kid you not – I have a pair just like them. If you like the underwear, there’s a ton of online stores that sell similar Superman briefs, though this specific pair – I believe – is from H&M. I’m not sure if you can still get these briefs in stores, but they’re easy to find on eBay for around $22-23 USD.
Anyway, a great big thanks to Frankie for sharing his pic with us all.
Remember, you can send us your pic too, and we will share it with the world.
Have a great day everyone!
David Beckham Bodywear is a range of boxer briefs, trunks and briefs – available in black, white or gray – that can only be purchased at H&M. If you’ve seen the television commercial, which features an incredibly fit Mr. Beckham wearing nothing but his underwear, you probably understand why I’ve been looking forward to reviewing the products. Of course, he’d probably look fantastic no matter what he wore, so I wanted to get a pair and see for myself what they’re really like.
For this review, I tried a pair of solid black trunks. They’re constructed from a fabric that’s 95% cotton and 5% elastane, which provides a soft cotton feel and allows for a little stretch. One of the first things I noticed when I took the pair out of the cardboard box was the understated marketing on the product itself.
It’s almost standard industry practice to feature brand names in large fonts on waistbands, but these trunks just have one small rectangle of a brand label (black label with white lettering) sewn into the front of the waistband. This places more of an emphasis on the underwear and less on the brand.
Then I tried them on and found that they fit me like a glove. They were comfortable all around and I felt that I looked good wearing them. Most designer underwear these days offer front pouches and those pouches range from a little extra room for comfort to size enhancement. These trunks are in the former category, so they provide some room in the front for comfort, but don’t showcase a large bulge. So you can wear these to work with flat-front pants without worrying that you’re showing too much of yourself to the office :)
I ended up wearing these to work and the gym and I felt comfortable in them all day. They’re durable, well-designed and well-constructed. One odd feature is that there are four tags sewn stacked on top of each other in the back of the waistband that list the materials and washing instructions in several different languages. But because these tags are quite thin, they didn’t itch. In fact, I couldn’t feel them at all.
So what’s my verdict? I’m surprised by how much I like these trunks. Because of the great comfort, style, quality, versatility and low price, I feel that David Beckham has scored a solid goal with these. 5 stars!

Apparently, as long as you’re a major athletic super star (and not shaking your booty too violently) YouTube will refrain from blocking your videos.
Case in question: Mr. Beckham’s much-hyped Super Bowl video ad featuring his new H&M Bodywear range (a less offensive way of saying underwear).
The video sees Beckham pose in boxer shorts, boxer briefs, and regular briefs while looking confident in that angry/serious model kind-of-way. You can see the video below. There’s even a behind-the-scenes clip as well.
Carried by low-price retailer, H&M, the new Beckham undies are quite cheap. In the U.S., a pair of briefs is just $12.95.
Look out for our official review of the Beckham Bodywear range in a few weeks’ time.
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!
H&M men’s underwear has come a long way the last couple of years. Yesterday I visited our local H&M store and I was pleasantly surprised by how the Swedish clothing store had evolved their men’s underwear line.
I actually own a few pair of H&M boxer briefs that I got on a vacation to Portugal last year, and you know, they’re still in my underwear drawer. This in spite of the fact that, just as all their clothes, H&M mens underwear sells at discount prices, which (usually) indicates low quality and creativity.
H&M has a growing number of stores all over the west- and east coast of the US as well as the rest of the world. So the chances of you passing one of the them are greater than you might think.
Now, if you’re still not sure that H&M men’s underwear is something for you, do go on reading. I’ve got three compelling reasons why I think this underwear label ain’t half bad.
1. Use discount underwear to diversify your underwear drawer
Having a preferred discount underwear brand, that you know won’t let you down, opens up a lot of opportunities for guys with tight budgets.
You can easily get a 3-pack of H&M men’s underwear, like the cotton boxer briefs on the picture to the left, for around $20.
This means that you can get a lot different underwear styles, cuts, and designs for next to nothing. And in these troublesome financial times, this option may appeal to a lot of guys.
I would not recommend, though, that you go entirely for discount underwear. Rather, you should think like this: Instead of getting three pairs of boxer briefs at $15-20 a pair, get an H&M 3-pack at $20 and one great pair of stylish, quality underwear which usually sets you back $25-40.
In this way you will have diversified your underwear drawer so that you have something (affordable) to wear for your everyday purposes as well a few pairs of high-end, quality underwear for those special occasions.
In my experience, when it comes to men’s underwear, price and quality usually go hand in hand. And to some extend this is also the case with H&M underwear. Don’t expect it to match brands like Bon Bon, Calvin Klein, or Aussiebum.
That said, H&M men’s underwear is surprisingly good quality. I still have the (95 % cotton, 5 % Elastane) boxer briefs that I bought last summer, and they haven’t lost too much stretch, fit, or color since then.
This is testament to proper manufacturing quality and the obvious advantages of economy of scale enjoyed by mega clothing chains like H&M.
3. H&M = Fun designs
One final thing you guys need to consider when thinking about getting a pair of H&M underwear is the abundance of fun designs and patterns.
Usually, low-end underwear brands do not focus on design besides traditional black and white solid colors. H&M, on the other hand, has a growing selection of colors, patters, and print designs.
Wearing a pair of H&Ms will have you looking fun and interesting in changing rooms, bedrooms, and any other room you may be wearing them in :)
