Archive for the ‘Munsingwear’ Category
Every year we here at GUB look forward to HisRoom‘s prestigious UndieAwards – mostly because it’s a good chance for us underwear enthusiasts to get an idea about what other guys think is their favorite styles and brands.
More than 40,000 men and women cast their vote, so these awards really provide useful insight into contemporary mainstream underwear fashion.
The winners of this year’s vote has just been announced, and I am not too surprised to see stylish brands such as Calvin Klein, UnderArmour, and Obviously take home wins in catories such as boxers, boxer briefs, jockstraps, thongs, and trunks.
But I am – quite frankly – extremely surprised that the winning brief was the Munsingwear Full Rise Pouch Classic White Brief!
I mean, just look at it! That’s just not a sexy pair of briefs!
What on Earth made the voters go for such a diaper-like full cut brief?? I just don’t get it. Past winners in this category include much more stylish choices such as the C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief and the 2(x)ist Contour Pouch Brief.
I guess it must be extremely comfortable to wear… But who am I to judge, this is obviously what a lot of guys prefer – we gotta respect that.
Instead, let’s quickly move on to some of the other categories with winners that are easier on the eye, hehe.
The winning boxer brief was the Obviously For Men Low Rise Boxer Brief. A good choice, I think. Obviously really is one of the pioneers within pouch design and innovation.
In the thong category, the winning style was an oldie but goldie – the Calvin Klein Body Thong. It comes from CK’s extremely succesful Body range which has been a hit with quality conscious men for years.
Personally, the CK Body Hip Brief is one of my favorite briefs of all time.
Finally there is the winning thong, and this year the voters have – once again – chosen the UnderArmour Performance Jock. This is the third year in a row that UnderArmour takes home the trophy in this category.
I can’t say that I am too surprised. I know that it is a go-to style for many guys for athletic purposes. It’s no coincidence that we see many pros wearing UnderArmour, too.
All in all, I think the winning styles fit well with the current trends – EXCEPT that Munsingwear brief. To me that’s a miss, guys. If this is what you’re wearing, you seriously need to explore new underwear horizons.
With that said, don’t forget to pay HisRoom a visit.
Once again, they’ve done a great job with the UndieAwards.
Now, here’s video presentations of all the winning styles in the men’s underwear category.
