So let’s kick off the weekend with some nice underwear photography.
This recent photo shoot featuring Ryan Bertroche by MensUnderwearStore.com caught our eye the other day… And you mustn’t miss it, either.
The MensUnderwearStore.com team of photo experts recently shot Ryan Bertroche on location in St. Louis, MO. A native of Iowa, Ryan broke a sweat and kept things sizzling with his looks that resemble a young Kurt Russell. In addition to modeling the new Calvin Klein Performance collection, Ryan also wore items from the Underdenim, Dry Touch and Fresh & Bright collections from Diesel.
You can get these undies over at www.mensunderwearstore.com.
Enjoy the pics and have a great weekend!
Please give a warm welcome to our newest guest blogger by the name of “E”.
In today’s post E shares with us some of his favorite undies that all have in common that they are made from modal – one of our favorite underwear fabrics.
If you’re new to this seductive and soft fabric type, this is the perfect starters guide!
As an undie enthusiast I have various undies; thongs, briefs, jocks, trunks and like two pairs of non sexy boxers. Most are made of cotton, some nylon. But nothing, I mean nothing, beats a pair or modal fabric undies covering my ass and my “boys”.
One of my favorites is the Sports Brief by Obviously – as seen below. Obviously predominately makes most of their underwear with Modal, which means they are my favorite brand. The sports brief is especially dear to heart because it’s perfect.
I enjoy feeling sexy underneath my jeans and button down shirt when I’m working for 14 hours a day, but I also I need to be comfortable and the briefs provide that. If I have a date set up they get as excited – as I do – when they see me drop down to those briefs.
Here is why: The Pouch fits your dick like a glove it puts it center stage. The pouch hangs as low as you do, or as high. It’s perfect the waistband feels great as well and sits low on your waist so it shows off your body perfectly and gets your date excited just by looking at you. The brief is not only sexy but comfortable I wear at work when I’m at the gym working up a sweat. It’s perfect.
My next favorite pair is from Calvin Klein X Boxer Brief. When I don’t feel like wearing a brief these Calvin klein Boxer briefs are the next thing. These boxers are pretty long covering to the very beginning of my thighs. But the beautiful thing about these is it doesn’t ride up your thigh like most boxer briefs or gather in the crotch area. No picking out.
Again because it’s made of Modal you still feel sexy underneath your suit and if you get excited at work it keeps your excitement concealed. These don’t shrink either when you wash them. They come in bright colors so when your pants sag low they show off your asset and you can match with your outfit.
You can’t go wrong with anything made by 2(x)ist. When the company decided to start making undies made of Modal I was as happy as a child on Christmas morning.
My pair of 2xist briefs are again comfortable and sexy. I’ve worn them to the gym, work and of course when entertaining. They keep your junk in one place and dry.
All the above-mentioned modal undies can be bought over at Guys Underwear Favorite, International Jock.
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.
For each of the categories HisRoom’s panel of expert judges selects a favorite style. But the overall winner is chosen by popular vote on Undie Award website.

The curve of the front seam on this brief was designed using very precise measurements for a superior fit and well-made design. The additional flatlock stitching and binding accentuate and enhance the gentlemen’s package.”
I couldn’t find the official Undie Award video for the 2xist Contour Pouch brief on Youtube.
However, you can see it on HisRoom’s own website.
Until I find the official video, you’ll have to settle for this :)

Here’s what the judges said about their choice for trunk of the year: “Offers an enhanced slimmer fit with an updated silhouette for today’s man. Made of a cotton/spandex jersey knit, this trunk features a soft finish, making it ideal for everyday wear. The seamed contour pouch offers an improved profile and superior support while the dual-back seams on the rear of the trunk provide a very comfortable fit.”
Men’s trunk of the year, overall winner: Calvin Klein Steel Micro Low Rise Trunk
HisRoom made the following comment on the win by Calvin Klein: “Designed to celebrate Calvin Klein’s 25th anniversary of creating stylish men’s underwear. This is a sexy, low-rise trunk with a short inseam to wear with tight hipster pants. Made from an unbelievably soft stretch microfiber, this Calvin Klein trunk features a wide microfiber logo waistband in lustrous metallic silver. The classic lines and double-layer paneled pouch make this trunk a modern classic and an instant favorite.”

Obviously underwear for men is part the growing generation of talented Australian underwear brands.

When talking about profile-enhancing men’s underwear you have to include Obviously. The key features of Obviously Underwear are their ultra stretchy and form-fitting fabrics as well as their pouch design, which since 2007 have helped pave the way into the portfolio of most men’s underwear web shops.
Also, you gotta give these guys some credit for their environmental and social efforts. Not only is Obviously underwear produced with mother Earth in mind, but the packaging is eco-friendly as well. Moreover, every time you buy one of Obviously’s men’s products you are supporting the search for a cure and the associated programs that are designed to help the sufferers of Prostate Cancer and their families.
So if you’re looking to clear your conscience and enhance your package profile, Obviously might just be solution you’re looking for.
Obviously underwear styles, fabric, and price
In terms of men’s underwear styles, Obviously carries low-rise briefs, regular briefs, bikini briefs, boxer briefs, trunks, thongs, and jockstraps. So whatever your underwear preference, Obviously’s provides the enhancement you need.
The stretchiness and lightweight feel of the fabric is due to the 100 % Modal/Lycra blend. This blend is also very attractive to many men as it resists shrinking and color fading.
Obviously is an upper mid-range brand, which means that a pair of briefs typically will set you back around US$27. Boxer briefs and trunks are priced a little higher at US$30.
You can buy Obviously men’s underwear at their own website, which is cool if you live in Australia. If you are an American resident, Skiviez has a wide selection of Obviously Underwear.
You’ve never seen men’s underwear video promotion like this!
If you take a look around Guys’ Underwear Blog, you’ll see many examples of creative and top quality videos promoting various men’s underwear brands. Underwear fashion shows, behind-the-scene footage from photo shoots, commercial style videos – you name it, I’ve seen it.
But this video introduction to Obviously was unlike anything I had seen before. What a creative to illustrate the concept “freedom of movement”.
Take a look.
