More original photos for you guys today!
First up is a pic featuring the excellent Jake Joseph. Soft comfortable classy underwear has never looked so good. Here our GUB exclusive model is strolling through the hallway in a classic pair of Jake Joseph super soft undies. Love you Jake, and thanks for the undies! BTW this exact pair are now my favorite Jake Josephs sitting in my dresser. I love this job.
For your own Jake Josephs go to: www.jakejosephco.com
Also, I included a few more shots from the Naked Man Festival. This was an amazing festival! Live photo shoots of men in underwear and less. Of course we are gonna focus on the undie pics here. And how could a shoot be complete without the traditional animal print thong shoot. We got our models to tap into their primitive side for this shoot.
Hope you enjoy!

We already look forward to next year’s Brief of the Year poll.
It’s time to check out nominee number 2 for the title of Guys’ Underwear Blog’s official Brief of the Year 2012.
This is a brief that we have come to love over the past year. Especially Valdamar was ecstatic in his review of the Jake Joseph Classic Brief, awarding it a 5 star grade.
The comfort and feel along with the sophistication of the design was the best thing about the Classic Brief, according to Valdamar. This is a pair of underwear that accomplishes its purpose with out trying too hard.
And in this world of low-rise briefs it’s nice to see that some brands still manage to put together a mid-rise brief that is both sexy and comfortable without looking like something only your grandpa would wear.
The fit of the Jake Joseph Classic is extraordinary due to the fact that the fabric is so resilient. It holds snuggly to your body and keeps its shape even with extended wear. The fabric is a high quality 95% Bamboo / Viscose 5% elastic and the construction is just spotless.

Saturday February 11th we had our first ever live underwear party; the GUB Grind! It was a blast. If you didn’t get a chance to make it out to Colorado here’s how it went.
See more pictures at the bottom of the post!
First some of the back story. Last fall we were contacted by the Colorado Springs Pride Center, which is the city I happen to live in. They’re working hard on the 2012 Pridefest which has been themed “We the People”. The city has had a rough battle for human rights with in the gay community and this is where they want to make the peoples voice heard.
Honestly the city is ready for this community to make it’s move, it’s come a long way since the amendment 2 days. (for more on this Pride Center and it’s campaign toward equality go to: http://www.ppglcc.org/ ) So that being said we at the Guys’ Underwear Blog wanted to help. How can we get our expertise involved in a fund raiser? An underwear party!
So we found a home; Club Q in Colorado Springs (http://www.clubqonline.com/). And we contacted many of our friends we have come to love within the underwear community and gave them the proposal. And of course we had some great responses from some amazing folks in the industry and the GUB Grind was born!
I will be honest.
Things did get a little chaotic and the event almost didn’t happen. On the day of the event it snowed and the temperature was 16 degrees Fahrenheit! It was 70 and sunny the next weekend. Many of the people working on the event were coming from Denver, an hour’s drive away which includes a fairly rough pass.
My co-host was unable to make it, so we threw in a last minute stand by who I have to say did an amazing job. Thank you Mikey!
Several models, also coming from Denver, were not able to come for various reason. We found an adorable guy named Kyle who was willing to step in. And the Natalie Lynn Modeling agency was great about finding us a replacement literally a few hours before the show (http://www.natalielynnmodels.com/). Both our photographers were unable to make it (so forgive the bad pictures, lol) as were several volunteers.
But… The show went on and it was AMAZING!
Thanks to our sponsors 2(x)ist, Jake Joseph, Maclovia, Mensuas, and Tribe we had over 60 pairs of underwear to auction off. We set up a silent auction which ran from 6pm till midnight. I personally bought several new pairs of underwear. I was SO happy! One of our favorite models, Adam Coussins, also donated a pair of his underwear which he autographed.
The show started and everything else became a blur to me! It was crazy, hectic wonderful fun and the next thing I knew it was over. But it was so much fun. We ran a fashion show, then auctioned off the underwear right off our models! Unfortunately the models did need to wear underwear under the undies; legal and hygienic reasons. A few pair brought in over $50!
We opened the fashion show with 2xist in a formal show featuring their Tux Collection. That’s where I had on my ridiculous formal underwear. I was a mess that night! But our models looked great in the underwear complete with bow ties.
Next we had our JOCK Show featuring the underwear provided by Menuas. The models look amazing with their sports gear and props. This was definitely one of the shows the models seemed to have the most fun with.
After that we had our Valentines Fashion Show featuring the sleek underwear of Jake Joseph. Here the models came out in a mask and matching heart boxers, which we gave the auction winners, and stripped them off to reveal the Jake Josephs. A few months ago Jake Joseph himself called me to talk about this event. I was all giddy!
FYI, see all the photos at the bottom of the post!
Next we had our Wet and Wild Show here we showcased the swimwear of Tribe. We also gave our models squirt guns and bubbles. After this we had a special entry with two swim suits from Maclovia. This was a hit as Maclovia is a new underwear brand out of Denver. So the locals loved it!
We didn’t want to forget the women nor the lovers of their underwear so we threw in a women’s underwear contest here. Wow, these women worked it!
Finally we concluded the program with our TOUCH Show where we showed of 2xists brand new spring collection entitled TOUCH. We even had a few gals from the women’s underwear contest escorting our guys around! And we ended up with multiple models around at the same time. So much fun!
The event was amazing and was so much fun. Despite the bad weather we raised over $1,000 for the Colorado Springs Pride Center! Thanks to our friends, Club Q, and its amazing staff, Natalie Lynn Models (Nick, Gregg, and Andrew), our other models (Thom, Kyle), 2xist, Jake Joseph, Maclovia, Mensuas, Tribe and the Pride Center Volunteers (Cindy, Dionesia, Lee and Cris).
Cris was our last minute camera man. We will have a video out soon! The pictures here are stills from the video. But continuing the trend our video man has the flu! But keep on the look out for the video.
So thanks again and please, please support the amazing companies that made this possible. And may the Colorado Springs Pride Center reach that goal of equality for us all!

No More Swimming in Underwear
Dubai’s beaches have a new ordinance which makes it obligatory to wear proper swimwear while on the beach. They have had issues with people swimming in just underwear, which becomes transparent, or swimming fully clothed. Now beach patron must wear an actual swim suit. As a lifeguard at a pool I must say I like this new law, although sometime wet undies aint too bad.
Crotchless Panties for 7 Year Olds!
What the heck! Right here my home state too! Watch the video, it says it all.
A New World Record in Underwear, Literally
57 people in the Canary Wharf district of London set a new world record for the most people to be in a single pair of underwear. Obviously not a normal pair of undies here. But some of the participates had on some nice undies themselves.
Sperm Cooling Underwear
STUD, the baby making underwear, has designed a pair of undies that will keep your sperm cooler, thus helping to increase your fertility chances. These undies are designed with cool mesh material around your sperm producing areas, namely your testicles. These undies will run you about $60. But a much more styling option to them baggy boxers: www.studbriefs.com.
Mario Lopez Underwear Line
So Mr.Lopez former Saved By The Bell star, a title he will never out-live, has designed a new line of mens underwear. And good for him for being willing to be the model as well. He looks great. The underwear on the other hand have been getting mixed reviews. Some guys say they look like they would have been in fashion back in the 70’s. Personally I don’t know, I think Mario should send us a pair to review.
Underwear Under Toupee
Nilesh Ramlal Bari, a 28 year old man in Mumbai, stuffed his toupee with underwear. Why? He wanted to be a policeman, unfortunately he is only 165cm and they have a limit which is 168cm. So he is too short, so to pass the exam he came up with this little trick. It didn’t work and instead his little stunt make the newspaper and our international blog.
Honk If You Think I’m Sexy
A teenage boy was standing out in the street in Fairfield Connecticut in his underwear holding a sign that said “Honk if you think I’m sexy”. And of course he had a friend video taping the whole thing. It should be on YouTube soon.
Robert Downey Jr Flashes His Underwear
On his red carpet walk for the new Sherlock Holmes movie Robert made a little fashion faux pas. He tucked his shirt into his underwear as opposed to over his underwear and into his pants. So we got to see his red Calvin Klein’s. Of course Klein may have paid him to do that.
Will Tebow Win You Underwear?
Jockey announced that if Tim Tebow, who has yet to pose in Jockeys, and the Broncos win the Super Bowl they will give away a million dollars in underwear and to one winner $15,000 (Since Tebow is number 15). Jockey should have bet more, they probably won’t have to pay. But if they do win Woo Hoo! (Above is a pic of Tebow in underwear, not Jockeys, GASP)
PICTURE OF THE WEEK:
In honor of Christmas I found it only fitting to showcase a nice tree with some beautiful gifts underneath. Hamid, Nick and Trent, three of the models from the Natalie Lynn modeling agency who will be working the runway at the GUB Grind!
This also is a GUB Original picture featuring underwear generously donated to us by 2xist. Hamid is in the white Military Sport Brief . Nick is in a green Military No-Show Trunk. And Trent is in a green Military Square-Neck Tank. I love the Military Collection from 2xist! I will have a review coming out soon on this line. Thank you 2xist, Natalie Lynn, Hamid, Nick and Trent and a Merry Christmas to all of you!

Happy 1st December, guys! We’re kicking off the Christmas month with an amazing post.
Anyway, Jake has been kind enough to offer his helpful advice for your holiday underwear shopping. You wouldn’t want to miss it – there are some great tips in there.
Don’t forget to visit his store over at jakejosephco.com.
Without further ado, here it is: Jake Joseph’s 2011 men’s underwear holiday shopping guide.
By Jake Joseph
From the essentials to indulgences, it seems that our shopping styles have shifted the past few years. As the holiday time is upon us, many shoppers are on a mission to purchase items of both value & quality.
For every wallet size and fit preference, there are some terrific options out there. Here is some information that may help you make great purchases for whomever is on your shopping list!
For those prefer STRETCH (BRIEF, TRUNK & BOXER BRIEF):
Look for: Modal and Viscose. (These fabrics are terrific and resilient, and long-lasting even after washing).
Helpful Tip: The leg binding is an important and often overlooked facet. The bottoms of stretch pairs that are reinforced help the product from bunching up the leg and lend a more uniform fit.
For those who prefer BOXERS:
Look for: 100% Cotton and Pima. (The Pima’s are both breathable and contain some elasticity).
Helpful Tip: Each individual’s trunks (thigh area) are different in length and width. Find a leg length that fits your body type the best.
Helpful Tip: Aussiebum produces modern briefs that have multi-colored and interesting designs (20 USD). Zimmerli of Switzerland delivers an excellent brief that is understated in color and promotes a terrific fit (55-70 USD).
Helpful Tip: If you want soft and breathable, go with Calvin Klein’s Micro Modal Trunk (20 USD). If you want light-weight and comfortable, go with Perofil 4Ever Pima Cotton Pushup Trunk. They come in a bit shorter than normal trunks, providing comfort and an overall good fit (37 USD).
Helpful Tip: For comfortable and simple, go with Polo Ralph Lauren’s Knit Boxer Briefs (3 for 38 USD). For a solid fit geared for athletic activity, go for Lululemon’s Game On Boxer Brief (24 USD).
Helpful Tip: If you prefer a more traditional leg length, go for
Brooks Brothers (25 USD). If you want the traditional boxer style with an element of stretch, go for Hanro of Switzerland’s Cotton Knit Mercerized Cotton boxers (70 USD).
Peace & Happy Holidays,
Jake Joseph is all about quality, comfort and elegance and that shines through in their Classic Brief. This brief takes the long lasting timeless look of the traditional brief and adds a modern sophistication.
The first thing you will notice looking at the brief is the deep masculine and refined black captured in the fabric. Joseph has kept things very simple offering the brief only in black making it a standard classic choice.
The design is your traditional cut with an elastic waistband containing “Jake Joseph” spelled out in a white modern font. One modification the company has made is to the fly. Jockey has their signature “Y” front and others have the diagonal layered fly. But Jake Joseph has the fly designed with two parallel trimmed borders and the right side opening to a little pocket through which you have access to your penis for men who use fly’s for urinating.
The parallel trim looks very slick and makes for a very attractive fly. The front fly also has a slight pouch stitched in the base to better contour your package. However, the material is so soft that it would accomplished that cradling even with out a pouch.
The material is a 95% Bamboo Viscose / 5% elastic which is unbelievably soft, it’s very similar to Andrew Christians “Almost Naked” collection. I love the fact that so many underwear designers are exploring worlds of softer stretchy material, although we will always have a special spot for the cotton classic (with a touch of spandex of course).
They also make a boxer brief and trunk in this same material. Jake Joseph knew what they were saying when they called this one a classic.
The first thing I thought when I received this brief in the mail was “Holy crak-pipe Batman this is soft”, well not exactly, but I was extremely impressed by the fabric. I love the feel it’s a fabric – you must try yourself – it has the comfort of cotton with the sleekness of silk and the elastic quality of spandex. Amazing!
And what I liked about it was that its look is so unassuming. It doesn’t have loud colors, its brand is labeled in the band without a lot of hype or in your face panache, it is just as it’s named; classic and elegant.
The fit is also understated, it fits and supports you, giving you all the comfort you need without a pouch you can hide a basketball in or sides cut so high your butt cheeks keep sliding out, very appropriate for the sophisticated modern man.
I wore the brief all day and I didn’t want to take it off – it was heavenly. I think this brief works in every situation; it’s supportive, it’s comfortable, it’s stylish, it’s sexy and purely male.
It wears well and is durably made, even though the fabric feels kind of delicate it can take a good wear, washes well and keeps on going.
I love it and love you Jake Joseph!

CONGRATULATIONS Jake Joseph! The classic brief has scored a perfect 5 stars. We don’t hand perfect scores out to just anyone here at the GUB, but I honestly can not think of anything that this brief could change to be any better. Sometimes less is more and covering the basics is everything. I am excited to see where Jake Joseph goes from here, it will be hard to top the collection they have now, other than the boring old cotton boxers they have, the compilation is perfect. Thank you Jake Joseph for taking us to our enduring classic and making it stylish again. This is real underwear for every man.
