The new year is upon us and what better to start it off than with a nice set of new photos from our treasured “house” photographer, Adrian C. Martin.
Once again the photos feature a brand that is totally unknown to us but that we definitely have to investigate further. Meet Ca Rio Ca Wear.
Modeled by the excellent and up and coming Miguel Betancort, these photos were shot in the breathtaking island of Lanzarote.
Bring on 2014!
But before we take on the new year with all its interesting new underwear introductions, let’s take a moment and celebrate 2013 with this year’s final photo shoot from our “house” photographer, Adrian C. Martin.
Modeled by the excellent Yera Fontes at the exclusive Arrecife Gran Hotel on the island of Lanzarote, the underwear brand chosen for this photo shoot is Teamm8 – one of our all-time favorite brands to come out of Australia.
Enjoy – and have a happy and festive New Year.
Are men’s underwear companies the new tech startups? It appears that way given that we seem to discover a new line of fashionable men’s underwear every few weeks. Hopefully, we not heading toward some sort of underwear bubble.
Ken Wroy, based out of New York City, is one of the newest brands to set up shop. The premise is pretty simple: four basic cuts – a brief, boxer-brief, trunk, and another square cut described as “low-rise” – made of a cotton/elastane blend, enlivened with unique patterns. The underwear itself is made in Colombia. The shape and fit are familiar and fairly conservative. The pattern I chose was a little gaudy, but not so much that it would stop me from wearing them in a particular environment.
From what I learned on their website, the people behind Ken Wroy were on a “quest… to break the monotony of boring men’s underwear and make men ‘fashionable all the way.’” Given the broad range of styles, shapes, patterns, fabrics and looks already out there in the marketplace, Ken Wroy’s quest is a mighty one, indeed! However, if you are a guy who is used to basic white or black briefs and is interested in trying something new, then adding a bold pattern from Ken Wroy is a safe place to start.
|Style and look?||Traditionally-cut briefs with distinctive patterns.|
|Suitable for?||Any environment — going out, staying in, at work, at the gym, a hot date.|
|Fit and quality?||Fairly full cut; blend of 94% cotton/6% elastane.|
|Is the price right?||$24 seems a little high, but it’s pretty consistent with market value for stylish men’s underwear.|
|Best thing about it?||The wide variety of patterns.|

Ready for the new year? Let Croota (www.croota.com) help build the foundation for your new 2014 wardrobe with its six new ranges of men’s underwear.
If you want to skip past the “boring” details and go straight for the pics, feel free to scroll down.
With the “90s Neon Hipster” lo-rise brief ($22.90) and the “Neon Brief” ($22.50) ranges, you can add some fluorescent 90s color and comfort with the 50% viscose, 45% polyester and 5% elastane combination that provides for breathable all-day wear. The luxurious satin silver waistband only adds to the comfort. Both ranges are available in blue gray and light gray.
The sharp lines of the “Night Angles” range ($22.90) add a visual aspect to your manhood that should never be overlooked. Not to mention how great you’ll look from behind, as well. The Croota Comfort Waistband also adds style to the dimensions of the boxer brief with an 8-bit inspired graphic. The range is made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex, and is available in chocolate with a blue check pattern and in midnight blue with a red check pattern.
Another two ranges released for the 2014 collection include the “Angular Pattern Hipster” ($22.90) and the “Angular Pattern Brief” ($22.50). With these ranges, turning back the clock never looked so good. Borrowing from the classic Houndstooth pattern, and adding a splash of 8-bit graphics, you are presented with one fascinating pair of underwear. The detail in Croota’s Comfort Waistband continues in this range with the inspiration found from early computer graphics so popular in early video games. The ranges are made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex, and are available in both sky and royal blues.
The final range released for 2014 is the “Garden Grove” boxer. When you’re having a great day, you tend to see the beauty in the smallest details. Spend enough time driving along any Southern California freeway, and you’ll see how shrubs are used to disguise highway sound barriers. This print is inspired by the simple beauty found along daily drives around California. Croota’s handwritten name is disguised as leaves, and the Croota four Color Comfort band caps it off. Add a little foliage to your wardrobe – no water required. The “Garden Grove” boxer is made from 95% cotton and 5% cotton, is available in navy blue and nutmeg, and retails for $23.90.
There you go! Now enjoy the pics.
