To the delight of underwear fans everywhere – us here at GUB included – this year they’ve done it again!
Barksdale Theater provided a grand backdrop as male underwear models showed off the latest offerings from the world of men’s underwear fashion – including many of our favorite brands.
And here’s something interesting and refreshing. Instead of a traditional runway presentation, Skiviez had the models present “scenes.” The scenes ranged from swim and sport to fetish and pride.
In total, more than 70 styles were feature in the show this year. Below is just a small sampling of what was showed.
Thank you, Skiviez!
About a month ago, online men’s underwear retailer, Skiviez, had their first ever live underwear showcase, i.e. a full on underwear fashion show, complete with seating, a bar and, of course, a catwalk!
The other day they released a string of photos from the event for the rest of us to enjoy.
The festivities took place in Richmond City in early June, and the male underwear models wore the latest styles from some of the most trendy brands, including 2(x)ist, Baskit, Calvin Klein (all some of my favorite brands), and Gregg Homme.
All sorts of underwear cuts made it to the runway including, briefs, trunks, boxer briefs, jockstraps, and so on.
Apparently, this was quite the exclusive event, as only the store’s closest supporters were invited. Of course, next time I expect to see an invitation in my mail box :) Ha!
I am not sure if Skiviez will release video footage from the show so for now we’ll have to settle for the pictures.
Take a look and be inspired.
Oh, and just a reminder. It’s been a while since my last review which is due to the fact that I am still in Thailand on vacation. Next week, however, I will kick off a brand new series of reviews from such hot brands as Todd & Terry, Piss & Vinegar, and N2N – just to mention a few.
The review of the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief is a follow-up on my blog post from the other day on the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut.
It has been really nice to see Skiviez get back in the game with some proper profile-enhancing men’s underwear, and the Boast collection doesn’t disappoint in that department.
Also, check out Skiviez’ sexy underwear fashion show.
The Boast collection is quite wide, and men looking to enhance their bulge can choose to do so in either briefs, square cuts, jockstraps, and Y-back thongs.
I was excited about the quality and enhancement abilities of the Boast Square Cut, and without revealing too much I can tell you that the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief does a great job as well.
The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief is a classic low-rise brief with the exception that the pouch dominates the look of the style. As briefs are probably my favorite style, obviously I like this Skiviez cut tremendously.
As was the case the case with the Skiviez Boast Square Cut, these briefs are just perfect in terms of how low they rise on the hip. Nothing tricky about this style. If you’re used to wearing briefs, you’ll feel right at home wearing a Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief.
I extensively accounted for the pouch design of the Boast men’s underwear collection in the post the other day.
The accentuating pouch design is pretty the same for the brief as with the square cut. Clearly, though, the profile-enhancing effect is much more “in your face” in a set of briefs, in my opinion.
In some situation this can flattering and attention-grabbing, but be aware, you will attract more gazing eyes when wearing just the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief than if you were wearing the square cut. If you want the lifting effect and not draw too much attention, go for the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut.
The back of the briefs covers you buttocks nicely. Though I could have liked a tiny bit more “but coverage” (maybe I just have a big ass, ha ha). Don’t worry though, the briefs didn’t ride up and many men will like that the backside doesn’t end too far down the upper thighs. All in all a satisfactory back design.
The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief also comes with a 1,4″ light gray soft-feeling waistband with the Skiviez brand name imprinted in a dark gray font. The waistband is just wide enough to hold the brief nicely in place on your hip.
The waistband has a Skiviez logo patch as well a separate production information patch stitched on the inside rear of the brief. The stitching is done so that you won’t notice it, and the product information patch can easily be cut off.
The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief is made from a nice-quality 95/5% cotton/spandex blend. This means that the underwear feels soft to wear and have enough stretch to fit properly.
This time around I wore the dark blue style, which I really like. The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief is also available in white. Now, white briefs are always a classic, but this dark shade of blue with white seams and leg openings will definitely complement any man’s skin tone.
I wore a US size M for a 32″ waist, and overall the briefs fit fine. The only small thing I can put my finger on is the leg openings, which could have been slightly tighter/stretchier. It may be due to the size I was wearing. Maybe I could have sized down to a small, though I think that would have felt too small (Skiviez recommends a size M for waists of 31-33″).
Everything considered the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Brief is a safe and recommendable choice if you’re looking to expand your underwear drawer with nice-quality profile-enhancing underwear.
In terms price, few other brands have Skiviez beat. At just $12 this is a true bargain.
Head over to Skiviez to get yours.
Skiviez is both a men’s underwear brand and at the same time a full-on online store carrying numerous of the best niche and mainstream brands.
Today I will review the brand new Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut. If you wanna skip to the actual review, simply scroll down.
Skiviez Men’s Underwear is back!
It’s been a few years since Skiviez introduced a new line of underwear, but now the wait is over! Skiviez Boast is the name of the new line of underwear from Skiviez that’s designed with a larger pouch that accentuates the look of your package.
The profile-enhancing pouch design is constructed to allow movement while still giving support. The lightweight design makes it perfect for sports or hot nights out on the town.
Now, it may be marketing stunt, but for some reason Skiviez is only offering a limited stock, which is available until April 1, 2010.
That said, lets get on with the review of the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut.
The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut is an interesting men’s underwear style, ranging somewhere between a classic trunk and a pair of low-rise briefs. This pair feels more like a classic brief design but with comfortably long hip coverage. This feature means that your entire backside is nicely covered as well. Remember, this is important if you want to wear your underwear an entire day and need it to stay put.
The “low-rise’ness” of the brief is just right for my taste. The square cut doesn’t ride too low around your waist, which means that your crack won’t show its embarrassing face. The Boast Square Cut rests nicely on your hips, which can be quite forgiving if you’re a man with a hint of love handles. High rising underwear can sometimes carve into those handles and give a very unfortunate profile.
Luckily, the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut won’t do that.
The pouch design of this square cut is really the key feature, as it is clearly made for enhancing the profile of your package. Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut comes with a lot of extra room, and it will work for most men – not just the well-endowed.
That said, you need to be brutally honest with yourself before buying this style – if you are below average in terms of package size you will be “swimming” in extra room, and rather than enhance your profile this pouch design might have the opposite effect. In that situation, you’re better off with a traditional pair of underwear.
I noticed that the pouch design didn’t feel tight or uncomfortable to wear for an entire day as some profile-enhancing men’s underwear tends to do due to the use of straps, rings, etc. This contoured pouch provides just enough lifting and support to accentuate your package without you ever noticing that you’re wearing profile-enhancing underwear.
As mentioned in the Style section, the back design well-proportioned to cover the entire area of your buttocks. Most men will feel that the leg openings follow the contours of the buttocks just perfectly, riding neither too low on the thigh or too high on the buttocks.
The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut comes with a 1,4″ light gray soft-feeling waistband with the Skiviez brand name imprinted in a dark gray font. The waistband is just wide enough to hold the square cut nicely in place on your hip.
The waistband has a Skiviez logo patch as well a separate production information patch stitched on the inside rear of the square cut. The stitching is done so that you won’t notice it, and the product information patch can easily be cut off.
The Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut is made from a nice-quality 95/5% cotton/spandex blend. This means that the underwear will feel soft to wear and have enough stretch to fit properly.
I wore the white version, but the Skiviez Boast collection also comes in a dark blue/white contrast. The fabric isn’t too delicate which is a plus if you go for the white square cut as it can be bleached to keep its true white shade.
Personally, I would go for the blue/white version simply because it’ll have you looking more colorful and interesting when wearing just your underwear.
I wore a US size M for a 32″ waist, and the square cut fit just fine. No need to size up or down.
It’s always nice to have a positive experience with low priced underwear, and the Skiviez Boast Low Rise Square Cut is a bargain at just $14,50. As this is a new product, the long-term durability remains to be evaluated. But at this price, who cares, when you can get two pair for the price of one similar premium brand style.
