From machinery to mineral fuel and electronics to automobiles, German engineering is in high demand around the world. While not the largest export in volume, one of Germany’s best, however, is its underwear. I recently tried styles from two brands influenced by German engineering, Manstore and Olaf Benz, both of which are sold on deadgoodundies.com. (Although I’ve seen some pieces from Olaf Benz on American websites, Deadgoodundies carries a much broader selection.) True – there are plenty of briefs from the United States and other countries, made of distinct fabrics and featuring distinct styling, there is something about the German engineering in these briefs that set them apart.
This will be a two-part review starting with the MANstore Retro brief. We will post the Olaf Benz review same time next week. So check back in next Thursday to get our thoughts on this brief as well.
Although the brand name, Manstore, makes me think of a website where I have to confirm that I’m over 18 before I enter, it is actually a well established underwear line. Their offerings, however, are definitely adult rated. I tried one of its tamer styles, the Manstore Retro Brief. The brief features retro styling with contrast piping around the waistband and seams, but the low-rise cut is particularly modern. The brief also features full coverage in the back. The combination of the retro and the modern is very flattering. I wish, however, that the pouch were a little more contoured and comfortable.
The brief is made of a 92% polyester/8% elastane blend that felt a little more rubbery than I would have preferred; although the brief is very light and thin and featured sort of a cool sheen, it didn’t feel completely soft against my skin for some reason. Also, the color – brown with tan contrast – wasn’t my favorite. That said, I liked that there was no pretense behind the synthetic fabric other than the sexy look and feel.
|Style and look?||Low cut brief featuring unique retro styling and a distinct fabric.|
|Suitable for?||Relaxed environments; date nights; being seen.|
|Fit and quality?||Low-cut with a comfortable pouch; good quality polyester/elastane blend|
|Is the price right?||Approximately $41.77 which seems a little high.|
|Best thing about it?||The retro styling updated with a modern cut and fabric.|
|Buy it here||www.deadgoodundies.com|

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.
