Get your underwear at International Jock. Recommended by Guys' Underwear Blog

The history of Y-front men’s briefs, the original Jockeys. Watch the video.

Briefs. Together with all its spin-off cousins, like boxer briefs, low rise briefs, sports briefs, it really is my favorite underwear style.

The other day I stumbled upon a couple of videos that give you a quick history lesson on how the modern day brief came into existence.

Besides a lot of fun clips of vintage underwear styles, the video reveals some interesting facts. For instance, did you know that the inspiration for the Y-front brief came from Europe where men were wearing brief-like swim wear? And that the support functionality of jocktraps played an important part as well?

Watch the clips at the end of the post.

A quick search on Wikipedia will tell you that briefs , in the shape that we know them today, were first sold on January 19, 1935 by Coopers, Inc., in Chicago, Illinois – nowadays they’re simply called Jockey.

They dubbed the new undergarment the “Jockey” because – you guessed it – it offered a similar degree of support as the jockstrap. Thirty-thousand pairs were sold within three months of their introduction, and the style has been a success ever since.

Enjoy the video and take a look at the hundreds of briefs-related blog posts right here on Guys’ Underwear Blog.
