Despite the name of the new range by Australian undies maker, The Navy Diver, the new Commando undies will in fact cover you up nicely down below. Same can be said for the more fun and popping Stripelicious range.
It’s been about 2 years since we first discovered this brand among the overwhelming number of Aussie underwear makers, back when the brand was modeled by Paul de Gelder, a true Australian icon that survived a near fatal attack by a three-metre bull shark.
How cool is that??
Anyway, while checking out their site the other day we came across this new cotton-based Commando range, available in 5 different colors, though only as trunks.
While we liked that, we were more into the other new addition, the Stripelicious trunks, which come in exciting stripe patterns and with a cunning, curvy/asymmetrical buttoned fly design. These are made from a funky fabric blend consisting of polyester + cotton + elastine.
The cool stripe undies will cost you, though. $35 AUD to be exact. The Commando trunks are somewhat cheaper $26 USD.

I just stumbled upon yet another attention-grabbing Australian men’s underwear brand, THE NAVY DIVER.
Seriously, how many underwear brands can a single country foster?? Australia really is for men’s underwear what Silicon Vally is for the IT biz…!
Anyway, I don’t have that much experience about THE NAVY DIVER. I just saw one of their recent videos on Youtube the other day and thought I’d share it with you guys.
See the video below the pics.
The story behind THE NAVY DIVER and their choice of underwear model and celebrity endorser is actually quite unique.
The face of THE NAVY DIVER is SharkBoy aka Paul de Gelder. There is no disputing that SharkBoy, THE NAVY DIVER’s Australian icon, is a true hero. In February of 2009, diver Paul de Gelder defied all odds by surviving a near fatal attack by a three-metre bull shark. Punching the shark several times to free himself and clinging on for life, he was rescued near Garden Island in Sydney.
Despite life changing injuries, Paul became an unlikely ambassador for shark conservation taking part in the United Nations conference in New York where he raised awareness to protect the shark species from over-fishing. He is soon to release his personal autobiography in which he chronicles life before and after his attack.
Conservationist, THE NAVY DIVER underwear model, surfer, Aussie hero and bon vivant – he vigorously trains in the gym, loves the surf and prides himself on a well balanced diet. His story and journey has captivated the world over.
And funky underwear with some very distinctive design features, don’t you think?
FYI, a pair of typical NAVY DIVER briefs will set you back around US $25.
