The 2wink Australia guys are at it again!
Made with the luxury modal fabric, 2wink Australia is giving guys a new option in comfort and fit. These new low-rider briefs accentuate and add a little extra contouring to guys of any size.
Modal is one of our FAVORITE fabrics. It is a semi-synthetic fiber that absorbs 50% more water than cotton, and which, unlike cotton, is resistant to fading and shrinking.
“I’ve always believed that all men should feel sexy in their underwear,” says 2wink Australia co-owner Carl McNeill – who is in fact a good friend of GUB. “With the Platinum range, we’ve created a pair of low-rider briefs that comes in three different colors and that provides you with comfort, fit and style! They make you feel sexy while making you look even sexier!”
The 100% Aussie-made Platinum range is available exclusively in low-rider briefs that come in black, red or white and feature a smooth-touch waistband. This silky soft modal fabric will show off your package and fit your rear like a second skin. Platinum low-rider briefs retail for under $30 USD (with free worldwide shipping), and are available at www.2wink.com.au.
In the crowded marketplace of men’s underwear, it can be challenging to differentiate yourself from the competition. But some companies, likeMcKillop, do a fantastic job at this. Not only do they offer a wide range of appealing underwear, but they’re the only company I know of that has a Custom Department that will hand-craft underwear specifically according to your requests (extra large pouch, etc.). They also have a Concierge Desk that will send you a swatch of the fabric for $1, so you can feel it before you place an order! From a service perspective I’m truly amazed by McKillop.
For this review, I tried two pair of their underwear: One I loved and the other I liked. So let’s start with the former.
Traveler Brief: Minimalistic 2nd Skin Undies – I try on a lot of underwear, but it’s rare that I have a “wow moment”. Well, this pair did that for me. It offers the benefits of a low-rise bikini brief, but the back-side provides enough coverage and support so that the fabric will stay in place (unlike several other brands I’ve tried where the bottom portion of my rear doesn’t get fully covered by the fabric).
For a minimal brief, there are so many things I love about them. The fabric, 92% modal and 8% spandex, feels like ultra-soft cotton, but is more durable and will hold its shape over time. Adding to the comfort is the fact that that fabric is very thin, which makes it live up to the “2nd skin” name. The brief is designed to fit like a glove, providing support and always staying in place. And there’s virtually no waistband; there’s just an ultra-thin elastic band. My overall verdict for these is that they’re comfortable, sexy and great for every day wear.
Elevate/Rear Enhancing Brief – This is another unique pair of underwear…it’s basically a low-rise jock strap, but has fabric that covers the backside. And the name is definitely accurate because these briefs really do elevate the rear to make it look more fit and attractive.
Although you’ll be able to feel the rear elastic lifting/supporting your back side, the front pouch offers much more freedom. The pouch is comfortable, but I’d actually prefer a little more containment. Just be careful wearing these with slim-fit pants because your crotch may appear more prominent than you’re comfortable with.
|Style and look?||Both pair offer sex appeal and unique styling.|
|Suitable for?||Both pair are great for everyday wear, but the Rear Enhancing Brief may make your pouch noticeable if you’re wearing slim fit pants.|
|Fit and quality?||They both fit incredibly well, are made from quality materials and offer impressive construction.|
|Is the price right?||Around $25 for the 2nd Skin Briefs is appropriate. The Rear Enhancing Brief costs around $60, which is on the high end, but if you want underwear that makes your rear look better, it’s worth the price.|
|Best thing about it?||For the 2nd Skin Briefs it’s definitely the feel. For the Rear Enhancing Brief it’s how it lifts/enhances your back side.|

In a vote for the best brief a man can get it wouldn’t make sense not to include one of the many great briefs by what is, quite frankly, one of most interesting and innovating American underwear brands at the moment.
N2N has been a front-runner for years in the category of profile-enhancing and sexy men’s underwear. Take a look at the N2N website, and you will find a variety of cuts and designs unlike few other men’s underwear brands. With their obvious passion for fashion, along with their willingness to explore totally new designs, N2N manages to reinvent themselves season after season.
Deciding which N2N brief to include in this year’s vote was no easy task. We finally chose the Performance X Brief – for several reasons.
This year’s vote include briefs made from wide range of fabrics. The Performance X Brief, too, has a very distinct mesh fabric composition consisting of 96% micro polyester and 4% spandex. Translation: It is an excellent choice for guys who want maximum ventilation. The low-rise profile of the brief along with nHANCE pouch make it an obvious choice for wearing under low-rise jeans or shorts on hot summer nights.
You can even wear them for sports activities as this fabric type is excellent for wicking moisture from your skin.
Finally, just look at it! It is, plain and simple, a drop-dead gorgeous brief that accentuates the male body in all the right ways.
The brief is $27 USD and you can get over at www.n2nbodywear.com.
If the N2N Performance X Brief is your choice for Brief of the Year 2012, then simply cast your vote in the poll below. Remember to also sign up to our newsletter at the top left corner of this page to take part in our Brief of the Year 2012 giveaway. Once the vote is over we will send off a pair of the winning undies to five lucky guys.
I’m constantly amazed at the variety of underwear in the marketplace that is designed to accentuate parts of the body. The majority of these focus on the crotch, but there are many of us out there that want the appearance of a fuller, rounder backside. For those of us in this category, Butt For You has a great product to check out.
Butt For You manufactures padded underwear that accomplishes two goals: an enhanced backside and additional comfort while sitting on hard surfaces. Their range of underwear consists solely of boxer briefs, but they’re available in seven different colors. The pads are good quality foam and the rest of the underwear is comprised of comfortable and breathable fabric that’s 95% combed cotton and 5% spandex. Another nice feature is that the brand name isn’t on the exterior of the product, so no one will know that you’re wearing padded underwear unless they look very closely or pat you on the butt.
Here’s how the product works: When selecting the underwear you want, you also select the size of the padding you’d like. The pads are available in two sizes (slim = 5/8” and regular = 7/8”) and can be inserted or removed as you choose. This is the only product on the market that I know of where you can adjust the rear padding!
So what’s it like to wear them? They’re comfortable and can provide added confidence and sex appeal if you want a rounder looking backside. If you have a very flat butt, you should probably opt for the regular size pads, but if you have a small butt that you just want to be a little rounder, go for the slim pads. I’m in the second category, so when I tried the regular size pads, I found them to be too large for me.
This underwear is a great choice not only for guys who want a rounder-looking rear end, but also for guys who feel uncomfortable when sitting on hard surfaces for a while (IE: long flights). And they’re well-made, so they should last a long time. The only thing I’d change would be to eliminate (or alter) the stitching on the crotch, but that’s it. These boxer briefs are definitely worth checking out.
|Style and look?||Butt-Padded Boxer Briefs.|
|Suitable for?||Wear them when you want to fill out the seat of your pants more. They’re also great to wear when sitting on hard surfaces for long periods of time..|
|Fit and quality?||They fit well, are constructed well and are made from quality materials.|
|Is the price right?||They’re $43.95. Considering the uniqueness and quality of the item, they’re appropriately priced.|
|Best thing about it?||The appearance of a fuller, rounder butt (if you need it).|

Today we introduce you to a new underwear brand that we have yet to cover here at Guys’ Underwear Blog: Activeman. The brand was recently introduced over at Jockstrap Central – and it caught out interest.
Activeman is best known for it’s affordable traditional jockstraps. But it actually offers a much wider selection.
Now, if you wanna skip to the hot picture set, simply scroll down and enjoy the looks of male underwear model, Draven Torres. Don’t you just love those tattoos?
Take their Liberty Trunk, for instance. It is constructed of one of our favorite fabrics: Modal. Modal is a processed bio-based textile made from the beech tree. In many ways, a modal acts like cotton but with the advantages of rayon. It’s soft, smooth and breathes well. It is cool to the touch and very absorbent with a resistance to shrinkage. Modal is also less likely to fade or to form pills as a result of friction and stays soft through repeated washings. Of course, our favorite feature of modal is simply it’s stretchability and it’s nature to expand adapting to anything that may pop up!
The Activeman Sports Brief is constructed of a sturdy but stretchy cotton with a touch of Elastane. The fully formed and roomy ergonomic 3d pouch ensures the utmost in comfort for a guy. And though it has no lift functionality per say, the pictures below don’t lie: This underwear will make the most of your bulge.
As for price, Activeman is extremely affordable. The Liberty Trunk is only $14.95 and comes in both white and black. The Sports Brief is only $12.95 and comes in black, white and grey. If you’re looking for the perfect everyday underwear that’s totally affordable, stylish, comfortable and built to last then we think we’ve found it for you with the newly launched Activeman Underwear now at Jockstrap Central.
It’s Sunday, and we’re a little hung-over.
So, we took to YouTube to pass the time and recover from yesterday’s night out. And here we stumbled upon a recent aussieBum video that we have yet to post here on the blog.
It’s a promotion for their popular, and now upgraded, WJ Pro RAW bulge-boosting underwear range for guys who looking to make the most of the profile below the waist.
aussieBum introduced its predecessor, the WJ Pro, in 2010, so if you loved that one chances are that you’ll become a fan of this new and updated version as well.
The aussieBum WJ Pro RAW is available in brief, hipster & jockstrap with a form fitting shape, soft cotton comfort and free swing boost technology (what the video, then you’ll get it).
Whatever your underwear preference, this video is still a nice little men’s underwear treat for a lazy Sunday.
Head over to www.aussiebum.com now to check out more about this astonishing piece of men’s underwear craftsmanship.
And here it is! Our very first original picture for the Guys’ Underwear Blog Gallery!
Photography was done for us by MusclePix of Colorado (Valdamar). Our model is Shane Diesel, relation to Vin is unknown, a body builder, model and all around great guy.
This was the first time Shane had ever worn a jock! EVER! And with AussieBums little lifting pouch inside it was great to see the look on his face as I handed him his wardrobe.
Shane has always been a boxer brief guy but after the briefs and jocks for this shoot he said “I’m switching from boxer briefs to [briefs]“.
He also mentioned his girlfriend was going to be happy about this change. I hope she enjoyed this jock as it was what he wore home after the shoot.
Enjoy the picture underwear lovers, there are more coming!
And don’t forget to visit aussieBum.com to get your very own WJPro!

A few days ago, N2N Bodywear had their yearly Erotic Fashion Show at Micky’s in West Hollywood. Here, some of the hottest male underwear models showed off N2N underwear, loungewear, activewear and eroticwear.
The video just came out, and that’s quite lucky for all us unfortunate souls who are not blessed with an address in sunny California. For it is FILLED with gorgeous undies. 6 minutes and 42 seconds of one sexy pair of N2N underwear after another.
Seriously, sometimes I forget how many hot styles the Los Angeles-based men’s underwear brand has under its name. And they’re all represented in the video: Briefs, bikni briefs, sport briefs, singlets, jockstraps, boxers, trunks.
You MUST check out the video below.
Some of my favorite styles in the clip below include – naturally – the briefs, but I’m also strangely fascinated by those low-rise jammer-type runner pants. By the way, the runner pants range between $38 and $46 USD.
Also, if you’re a N2N fan, you should check out their current clearance sale where you can get selected styles for as little as $10 USD.
Go to www.n2nbodywear.com to shop and see more pictures.
But first, feast your eyes on the 2011 N2N fashion show video.
Today I am reviewing a completely new brand, Skivvies!
Actually, the brand is a spin-off adventure by one of the largest online men’s underwear stores, Skivviesmensunderwear.com.
The announcement of the new Skivvies underwear range had us all pretty excited here at GUB.
Why? Well, the online underwear retailers get their hands on more underwear from more brands than most avid undies fans like you and I. So I’m thinking, they must know have the best hands-on knowledge of what great underwear should look like, feel like, and cost.
About a month ago the new range was released and included a number of different trunk and brief cuts, most of which were in the bulge-enhancing category.
Smart move, because from what we hear, this category is by far the fastest-growing category in the underwear business. Recession may be upon us, but guys around the globe will apparently prioritize an impressive bulge over all else.
Naturally, we approve of this development, LOL.
Anyway, I was fortunate enough to get a sample of the Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk for a review here on the blog.
It’s what I would call an aggressive bulge-enhancer suitable for everyday wear. And I don’t mean aggressive in any negative way. I’m simply referring to the technology employed to lift your package up and out. A technology that in no way disappoints.
Skivvies makes use of an elastic pocket-type container into which you fit your penis and balls – much like profile-enhancing undies from major brands like aussieBum and Andrew Christian.
Skivvies’ approach to adding lift is very effective and will have men of all “sizes” appear like well-endowed Adonises below the waist.
I was happy to notice that this lift feature, as well as the overall feel of the trunk, was surprisingly comfortable, which in no small way is probably due to the soft and stretchy 93% Polyester, 7% Spandex fabric mix.
The fabric and production quality is fine, and I would recommend that you follow the washing instruction (cold wash only) to preserve stretch, fit, and color the longest.
Overall, this is a very nice and satisfactory pair of underwear with amazing lift capabilities.
The Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk indeed makes for a promising start for the Skivvies brand.
See my final grade and more details – including where to buy it – in the review box below the pictures.
|Style and look?||The Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk has the look of a traditional low-rise trunk but with a few distinct details. One, obviously, is the massive bulge you’ll be sporting and which is framed very visibly by color-contrasting stitching. Another key feature is the center seam in the back which helps accentuate your buttocks.|
|Suitable for?||The trunk can easily be worn for everyday activities due to the stretchy fabrics and non-chafing pouch pocket. Most men would probably save bulge-enhancing underwear like this for festive occasions where you want to make an impression, for instance underneath a tight pair of jeans. That is one hot look!|
|Fit and quality?||The fit was absolutely fine. Besides proper sizing (a size M for my 32/33 inch waist was a perfect match), naturally the Polyester/Spandex mix makes for a very forgiving and adaptive fabric mix. The production and fabric quality seem fine for a mid-range product like this.|
|Is the price right?||Skivvies ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk is $28 USD. This is fair price for a mid-range product. This is bulge-enhancing underwear that everyone can afford.|
|Best thing about it?||The well-mastered pouch pocket that gets lift job done in comfortable and impressive manner.|
A well-deserved four star grade puts the ManPower Enhancement Pouch Trunk in class with many huge brands that have been in the enhancement business for ages. Skivvies has done well with its first range of profile-enhancing undies, and we can’t wait to see what the Skivvies team comes up with next.
