A few days ago, hundreds of people have stripped to their undies in Times Square in an attempt to set a new record for the largest number of people wearing only their precious underwear.
The event was held in honor of National Underwear Day (Aug. 5) and hosted by the excellent underwear store, FreshPair.com.
The goal was to get enough participants to break the previous Guinness World Record for “Largest Gathering Of People In Their Underwear” which is currently held by Salt Lake City (go figure) with 2,270 people.
Unfortunately, only 779 people turned up in Manhattan and thus the record remains in Salt Lake. We gotta give these guys points for the effort, though. And hopefully this is not the last time they attempt this.
Enjoy the pics.

The No Pants Subway Ride happening has been taking place since 2002 and is coordinated by the organization, Improv Everywhere.
This year was no different with metros and subways across the world flooded by bold subway riders showing off a multitude of gorgeous undies.
The event took place this past Sunday, January 13, and we have gathered a few photos from all over the globe, as well as the official video from Improv Everywhere.
Will you be taking a subway ride next year wearing just your underpants?
Enjoy the pics and video.
So, British newspaper, the Sun, recently ran a fun little article, testing performance underwear men in a quite unusual way…
They summoned a bunch of fit male models and teamed up with Thorpe Park to send send the models on Britain’s most extreme new rollercoaster, The Swarm, in just athletic undies.
G forces beyond your wildest dreams along with terrifying twists and turns — proven to have the same effect on the body as a game of high-impact sport — it was the ideal setting for an extreme underwear test.
And the models took no less than 3 turns!
See it pictured below.
Other high-scoring undies included the Nike Pro Combat Shorts and Lonsdale Men’s Trunks. Go here to read the entire article over at www.thesun.co.uk.
When will they be doing this test at Six Flags??
First came the annual No Pants day where subway riders across the world strip to their undies while commuting to work.
Great initiative that’s catching on in more and more cities each year.
This trend of parading around in your underwear in public now seems to b spreading. Leading up to today’s New York City Triathlon, yesterday hundreds of men, women – and more than a couple super heroes – put on their finest undies and ran through Central Park.
And we have both video footage and pictures from the event.
Enjoy guys, and have a fun Sunday. And good luck to you, should be taking part in the Triathlon.

Saturday February 11th we had our first ever live underwear party; the GUB Grind! It was a blast. If you didn’t get a chance to make it out to Colorado here’s how it went.
See more pictures at the bottom of the post!
First some of the back story. Last fall we were contacted by the Colorado Springs Pride Center, which is the city I happen to live in. They’re working hard on the 2012 Pridefest which has been themed “We the People”. The city has had a rough battle for human rights with in the gay community and this is where they want to make the peoples voice heard.
Honestly the city is ready for this community to make it’s move, it’s come a long way since the amendment 2 days. (for more on this Pride Center and it’s campaign toward equality go to: http://www.ppglcc.org/ ) So that being said we at the Guys’ Underwear Blog wanted to help. How can we get our expertise involved in a fund raiser? An underwear party!
So we found a home; Club Q in Colorado Springs (http://www.clubqonline.com/). And we contacted many of our friends we have come to love within the underwear community and gave them the proposal. And of course we had some great responses from some amazing folks in the industry and the GUB Grind was born!
I will be honest.
Things did get a little chaotic and the event almost didn’t happen. On the day of the event it snowed and the temperature was 16 degrees Fahrenheit! It was 70 and sunny the next weekend. Many of the people working on the event were coming from Denver, an hour’s drive away which includes a fairly rough pass.
My co-host was unable to make it, so we threw in a last minute stand by who I have to say did an amazing job. Thank you Mikey!
Several models, also coming from Denver, were not able to come for various reason. We found an adorable guy named Kyle who was willing to step in. And the Natalie Lynn Modeling agency was great about finding us a replacement literally a few hours before the show (http://www.natalielynnmodels.com/). Both our photographers were unable to make it (so forgive the bad pictures, lol) as were several volunteers.
But… The show went on and it was AMAZING!
Thanks to our sponsors 2(x)ist, Jake Joseph, Maclovia, Mensuas, and Tribe we had over 60 pairs of underwear to auction off. We set up a silent auction which ran from 6pm till midnight. I personally bought several new pairs of underwear. I was SO happy! One of our favorite models, Adam Coussins, also donated a pair of his underwear which he autographed.
The show started and everything else became a blur to me! It was crazy, hectic wonderful fun and the next thing I knew it was over. But it was so much fun. We ran a fashion show, then auctioned off the underwear right off our models! Unfortunately the models did need to wear underwear under the undies; legal and hygienic reasons. A few pair brought in over $50!
We opened the fashion show with 2xist in a formal show featuring their Tux Collection. That’s where I had on my ridiculous formal underwear. I was a mess that night! But our models looked great in the underwear complete with bow ties.
Next we had our JOCK Show featuring the underwear provided by Menuas. The models look amazing with their sports gear and props. This was definitely one of the shows the models seemed to have the most fun with.
After that we had our Valentines Fashion Show featuring the sleek underwear of Jake Joseph. Here the models came out in a mask and matching heart boxers, which we gave the auction winners, and stripped them off to reveal the Jake Josephs. A few months ago Jake Joseph himself called me to talk about this event. I was all giddy!
FYI, see all the photos at the bottom of the post!
Next we had our Wet and Wild Show here we showcased the swimwear of Tribe. We also gave our models squirt guns and bubbles. After this we had a special entry with two swim suits from Maclovia. This was a hit as Maclovia is a new underwear brand out of Denver. So the locals loved it!
We didn’t want to forget the women nor the lovers of their underwear so we threw in a women’s underwear contest here. Wow, these women worked it!
Finally we concluded the program with our TOUCH Show where we showed of 2xists brand new spring collection entitled TOUCH. We even had a few gals from the women’s underwear contest escorting our guys around! And we ended up with multiple models around at the same time. So much fun!
The event was amazing and was so much fun. Despite the bad weather we raised over $1,000 for the Colorado Springs Pride Center! Thanks to our friends, Club Q, and its amazing staff, Natalie Lynn Models (Nick, Gregg, and Andrew), our other models (Thom, Kyle), 2xist, Jake Joseph, Maclovia, Mensuas, Tribe and the Pride Center Volunteers (Cindy, Dionesia, Lee and Cris).
Cris was our last minute camera man. We will have a video out soon! The pictures here are stills from the video. But continuing the trend our video man has the flu! But keep on the look out for the video.
So thanks again and please, please support the amazing companies that made this possible. And may the Colorado Springs Pride Center reach that goal of equality for us all!
