It’s been a while since we’ve had a look at some fresh new underwear brands. And just today an e-mail popped into our inbox letting us know about a new Scandinavian underwear brand, Alexander COBB®. Based out of Copenhagen, Denmark, this brand shares roots with interesting Danish men’s underwear makers, such as JBS – the brand that recently teamed up with soccer super star, Christiano Ronaldo, to form the very successful sub-brand, CR7.
Now, however, there’s new guy in town. So what is this Alexander COBB brand all about? (Feel free to skip to the video and pictures below).
The Alexander COBB® men’s underwear collection comes in a range of body hugging boxers and boy leg cuts in a wide range of colors and patterns. The European quality waist band of each pair features the Alexander COBB logo and is padded for added comfort. The undies seem luxurious and appropriate for wardrobes of every contemporary guy from boyish trendsetter to the more confident and sophisticated man.
In terms of fabric we are looking at a blend of cotton and elastin in a range contemporary cuts in a number of limited edition prints. Each Alexander COBB® garment carries the signature of the Scandinavian designer who is known for his award-winning style and patterns are the patterns are exclusive to his collection, so you will not find them anywhere else.
The symbol for Alexander COBB® is the Koi – Japanese for carp and homophone for affection or love. Koi represents love and friendship and is synonymous with different elements in the collection – color, symbols, style and cut.
The Alexander COBB® men’s underwear range includes slip ones, trunks, boxer shorts and boxer long, and comes in 4 sizes (S, M, L, and XL). Each pair is made with designer quality elastic band, 92 percent cotton, and 8 percent Lycra.
A pair of average Alexander COBB briefs (called “slip” on their website) will set you back approximately $21 USD. Check out the entire range over at webshop.alexandercobb.com.
Enjoy the video and pics, guys.
I’ve been a briefs guy for as long as I can remember, so I was a little skeptical about trying the Croota hipster boxer brief. These distinctive boxer briefs, however, merit an exception to my policy. Croota, an Australian line, produces a substantial number of choices, all of which feature bold styling and branding. I tried the Neon 90s Hipster. The one detail that made it really stand out to me is the texturing on the back of the underwear.
The boxer brief is made of very smooth fabric, but there are three textured lines on the back, running from the butt to the thighs, which I just felt compelled to touch. I am sure that if someone else were wearing this boxer brief, I’d feel compelled to run my hands over the smooth fabric and textured lines, too. Simply put, this boxer brief is meant to be touched.
The Neo 90s boxer brief is made of a smooth 50% viscose, 45% polyester, 5% elastane blend. The styling is bold with a big CROOTA logo on the thick, yellow waistband. (The light gray version of the boxer brief features a light blue waistband.) In addition to the textured lines, there is a graphic and some text on the back, which is also textured, which I thought was gratuitous.
The front pouch is contoured and comfortable. Personally, I prefer an understated look – especially with respect to the waistband – but for the most part, the boxer brief isn’t so bold that I feel awkward wearing it. I think that the biggest testament to the boxer brief is that I washed it at the end of the day so I could wear it again.
|Style and look?||Low cut boxer brief featuring bold styling and texture details.|
|Suitable for?||The boxer brief would be comfortable in most environments – but it is definitely a good choice for a date night.|
|Fit and quality?||Low-cut with a comfortable pouch; good quality viscose/polyester/elastane blend|
|Is the price right?||$22.90 which seems reasonable given the fabric and styling.|
|Best thing about it?||These feel great to touch.|

It’s weekend, guys! And we have just the thing to spice up your favorite part of the week.
We sat down and went through the MANY new photos we have received from our favorite NYC brand, FU e=fu8. Somehow time had passed since New Years and photo upon photo had been landing in our inbox. We didn’t even realize how many great-looking promo pics had actually stacked up…
In fact, once we got an overview of the many pics, it became clear to us that we had to split up the pics into several posts. So, with no further ado, we present you with part 1 of our FU e=fu8 underwear photo festival!
We have mixed up the pics we received. Several models pose in FU briefs below, including the gorgeous Corey and Evan. The pictures were primarily produced by JSAI and Seth London.
