Our Spanish underwear and swim wear favorite, ES Collection, recently released another sizzling promo video featuring their 2013 swim wear range.
And naturally, we have to share it with all you fellow underwear fans out there.
The video is part of the 2013 campaign baptized “El Hierro” which we have been posting heavily about since it was launched several months ago.
Swim wear from the El Hierro range will set you back anywhere between $39 to $115 USD. But then again, these products are produced in Spain which vouches somewhat for the quality of the products.
Enjoy the video and check out the entire swim wear range over at www.escollection.com.
Earlier this week we introduced you guys to Bunker Underwear, and Lord almighty, today we already have another new brand we thought is worth mentioning.
Meet Curb, a UK-based underwear sports- and underwear brand designed to actively support and enhance your body profile.
Offering briefs and trunks, Curb undies are typically made from a standard cotton/spandex blend with a a pair of briefs available at around £21/$32 USD.
Our favorite will have to be the brief design which looks well-designed a with a sexy, low-rise cut. Check out the entire range over at www.curbwear.com.
Enjoy the pics, guys.
It’s time for some fresh inspiration!
As you know, we LOVE introducing you guys to new and upcoming brands, and on such a dull Monday we can think of no better topic.
So, meet Bunker Underwear: A luxury underwear brand whose design philosophy is to maximize the sexy appeal without compromising classiness.
Specifically, they achieve this through the use of high-tech fabric such as bamboo fabric, modal, spandex, French Eylet Mesh, etc. Also, they’re trying to discover new underwear styles (who knew that was even possible in this day and age) such as their “hidden jockstraps”.
Bunker Underwear has been around a couple of years but already have a loyal fan base on the social media. You should check them out in Facebookland at facebook.com/bunker4men.
FYI, a pair of Bunker briefs is typically around $18 USD. Oh, and currently they have a sale going on over at www.bunker4men.com.
Nice, huh! Enjoy the pics.
Final day of Diëtz reviews! Today I look closer at the smallest of the three bikinis: The KOMFORTMOON!
Smallest. Komfortmoon Mini Slip.
While all of Dietz’s bikinis are small, the Komfortmoon Mini Slip takes “small” to another level. With its narrow pouch and tiny waistband, Dietz stripped down the bikini to its bare minimum, leaving as little as possible uncovered at the front, although there is decent coverage in the back. They are quite possibly the smallest bikini briefs I’ve ever seen, let alone tried on and curiosity prompted me to choose them.
The cut certainly took some getting used to. The slim front pouch does not leave much room and requires some careful arrangement. Although the website claims that they give you an “amazing front bulge,” I found that they were constricting. They are okay around the house for a little while, but I was not comfortable walking around in them and didn’t even venture to wear them under my clothes.
The fabric itself is 84% polyamide/16% elastane and smooth to the touch, but, frankly, I couldn’t even think about the fabric when I had them on since the cut felt so unusual. The Komfortmoon Mini Slip is definitely for a distinct guy who is going for a distinct look and may already be used to such a distinct cut. If you are going for “distinct,” though, this tiny bikini will not disappoint at all.
|Style and look?||Tiny bikini briefs with a slim pouch.|
|Suitable for?||Getting noticed.|
|Fit and quality?||Very distinct cut although small front pouch is a challenge; stretchy microfiber fabric feels like good quality.|
|Is the price right?||It might be worth $18 just to see what they are like to wear.|
|Best thing about it?||Dietz elevated underwear to an “experience”.|

Today I continue my reviews of three bikini briefs offered by diëtz. Today we go even smaller than yesterday’s PILA bikini brief!
Smaller. Milano Bikini
While Dietz might have named this style the “Milano Bikini,” the bright turquoise color made me think that the Miami Bikini might have been a better name. Bold, brief and beachy, I think that prerequisites for wearing them are a deep, dark tan and a Brazilian passport.
While I liked the novelty of the look and the overall cut of the briefs was sexy without bordering on the absurd, I had mixed feelings about wearing them. The fabric was very silky and felt almost a little feminine. The elastic in the waistband and around the leg openings provided the snap of a Speedo that I like when I put them on, but during the day, that elastic was noticeably tense and a little uncomfortable.
Then again, these bikinis are not for the guy who has “comfort” at the front of his mind!
|Style and look?||Bikini briefs.|
|Suitable for?||Any place you want to get noticed (but not arrested): underwear parties, hot dates, nights in.|
|Fit and quality?||Small cut; sort of a silky.|
|Is the price right?||If you’re looking to get noticed, then the $18 will be money well spent.|
|Best thing about it?||The bold styling.|

This week I test drove three bikini briefs offered by diëtz, a company and online store that appears to have adopted a less is more approach to their underwear design. Diëtz, which claims to have its roots in Europe and Brazil (although its underwear is manufactured in Mexico), offers a variety of styles, primarily in solid colors — some which recall a cool, subtle, Euro aesthetic and others which evoke the heat of a Brazilian beach.
All of the styles were made of microfiber blends and all were eye-catching in their own way. And all were small.
For those interested in buying, if you are between sizes, definitely go with the size up.
Over the next three days I will publish a mini review of each style, starting with th Pila Bikini.
Small. Pila Bikini.
These bikinis provide the look and feel of a small bikini brief, which I like, and do so without looking too provocative. They are made of a fabric blend which sort of has a texture like a mesh, but is more comfortable and feels a little more substantial.
The styling is superb — solid steel gray with distinct, yet subtle red stitching. No big labels and, given their small cut, there’s no room to print anything on the waistband. I liked these a lot when I first put them on, so I tested their versatility by wearing them in different environments.
Of course, they looked and felt great just hanging out at home. Then, I wore them to work. Although it took a minute or two to get used to the distinct cut of the back, I found that they were comfortable enough to wear all day. Working out? Not so great. Given that they have high leg openings and a rather small back, they just didn’t move comfortably with my body. (But as most readers of this blog know, different situations call for different underwear.)
It’s challenging to find bikini briefs that feel good and can exhibit sexiness in a subtle way — Dietz’s Pila Bikini offers just that.
|Style and look?||Bikini briefs.|
|Suitable for?||Every day, nights in, nights out, hot dates.|
|Fit and quality?||Small cut; 93% polyamide/7% elastane blend with a distinct texture.|
|Is the price right?||$18 is very reasonable for well-styled designer underwear.|
|Best thing about it?||The tasteful and sexy look and feel.|

Guys! The time has come for us to take a closer look at the all new 2013 underwear, swim wear and activewear ranges just launched by one of our favorite American brand, N2N Bodywear.
N2N has been dropping teasers from the new collections the last month or so, and we have gathered a bunch of pics giving you a glimpse of all the items.
N2N has long been a top-of-line producer of singlets, and this season we are especially in love with the latest addition to this category, the Cotton Sport Wrestler. It’s $60 USD.
Also, the new Tritech collection from the activewear category. These second-skin designs looks absolutely awesome. The Tritech runner, pictured below, is $40 USD.
There are so many more breath-taking undies coming but for now we’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Oh, they are BACK!
ES Collection just launched their new campaign “Hard to Resist”. The underwear model posing in the video below is Kirill Dowidoff. As always, the ES video oozes sensuality, playfulness and lust. Can you resist?
The underwear collection featured is the ES Collection Basic Collection. The undies are made from a 95% cotton / 5% spandex blend. Open fly and no color contrast at all (exept for the brand name on the waistband). It’ll be available in 4 basic colors: white, black, navy & heather gray. This is a fashionable choice for a basic brief which is low cut and sexy, too. Expect it cost around $51 USD.
They sure know how to market it correctly, huh? Shop for ES undies over at www.escollection.es.
And enjoy the video.
Today I get to introduce something edgy and fun to you. Smuggling Duds is the British designer of Stash Pants – boxer briefs with unique patterns and a useful stash pocket. This brand focuses on guys with attitude; their underwear is worn by DJs as well as athletes from mixed martial arts to skateboarders and Motocross. And although they offer several attention-grabbing patterns, Stash Pants are also available in solid colors.
The stash pocket is a pretty useful component of the boxer briefs. It’s located just to the left of the button fly and sized so that it can accommodate money, credit cards, condoms or keys. Sure it would come in handy at an underwear party, but it’s even more useful when you want to be absolutely sure that no one can pickpocket you. So now that Stash Pants have been invented I hope that no one will ever need to buy a fanny pack (or something similar) to store their money when they’re on holiday/vacation.
So what are they like to wear? Well, the fabric is 95% cotton and 5% elastane, so they offer the comfort of cotton and a little stretch. They’re somewhat roomy, so if you like something form-fitting (as I do), then order a size smaller than you normally would.
I usually don’t wear eye-catching patterns, so I’m going to get more use out of the solid color (black, white, gray, red, orange) boxer briefs, but I think their unique patterns, which include Samurai, Star Spangled and Union Jack, are pretty cool and definitely make a statement. In addition to the pocket and patterns, some of the other distinctive features include a 2-button fly and a waistband with the SD logo.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with these and will definitely wear them.
|Style and look?||Boxer briefs with unique patters (and also solids) and a useful pocket.|
|Suitable for?||Suitable for everyday wear, from the office to the gym. When you want to be noticed, wear one of their patterns.|
|Fit and quality?||The fit is roomy, so if you want something more form-fitting order one size smaller. The fabric and construction are of good quality.|
|Is the price right?||They’re appropriately priced. They’re normally £18 to £20, but as of the day I’m writing this, their solid colors are on sale for £7.50.|
|Best thing about it?||I need to list two things here…the stash pocket and the cool patterns.|
