  • Four Tips for Organizing Your Underwear Drawer

    Unless your drawer is full of white cotton briefs worn out to varying degrees, then you have probably come across the problem of how to organize it all, so that you find what you’re looking for every time. Below you will find some tips on how to do so on budget and in about an hour, even if your undies drawer is a huge mess. 1. Toss the Old and Never Worn Ideally, you should go through your underwear drawer and toss out all the old and funky undies about once a year. I know it’s hard to let go sometimes, but you need to get rid of the old to let in the new. So before you start your organizing efforts, first get rid of all the old undies, such as those that have lost their color through too many washes, whose waistband won’t stay up anymore, and those that have holes. Since you’re going through the collection, also consider getting rid of all the pairs of underwear that you never wear. 2. Organize by Cut This tip applies if you have more than one style of underwear in your undies drawer. So, start by separating into different piles all the briefs, as well as all the trunks, jocks and boxers, or whatever else kind of cut you have in your collection. The cheapest way to do this is by placing old shoeboxes in the drawer and filling each of them with a certain style. You can also buy special drawer separators in most furniture stores, which are created exactly for this purpose. This way there will be no need to ruffle through everything and making a mess each time you’re looking for a specific pair of undies. 3. Organize by Color This applies if you own multi-colored underwear. The old shoeboxes once again come in handy here, since you can also use them to separate the underwear by color. For example, you can put all the black undies in one, the white in another, and the colored stuff in a third. This way of organizing the drawer will also save you the messy drawer on those mornings when you’re in a hurry and have to search for that certain pair of underwear. 4. Make it Neat Following the above tips will already make your undies drawer pretty neat, but why not go a step further and fold everything up nicely. True, most pairs of underwear will not get all wrinkly, but if you just roll them up in a ball and toss them in the drawer they won’t be neat either. And nothing signifies a slob as much as unkempt underwear does. By following the above tips you’re underwear drawer should look spick and span. Then all that’s left is to keep it that way. When next you’re doing your laundry, make sure to fold everything and place it back in its designated spot and pretty soon it will all become a lifelong habit.

  • Golden Undies

    About a week ago the Swiss underwear designer Rococo Dessous unveiled a line of exclusive underwear ,which is made, in part, from pure gold. The underwear in this collection features accents made from 24 carat golden threads. According to the brand, having golden underwear has been the desire of man and women since the dawn of civilization. Apparently, the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen was known to have worn precious metals-embroidered linens, and such was also the desire of several rulers after him. This included the Tsars of Russia, Kings of France and the Emperors of China. However, a pair from one of Dessous’ golden creation costs anywhere from $1,500 to $6,000, which is quite outside the underwear budget for most of humanity. The line is also currently only available for women, and it is not known if they plan on making a matching range for men. What about you? Have you ever thought about owning a pair of golden undies? While they’re not made from actual gold, you do have some choices and can now make such a dream come true. The Australian underwear maker Cocksox has recently released the fantastic CX02 Gold brief, which is the embodiment of bling and party life. It is made from a shiny, golden colored blend of 82% polyamide nylon and 18% elastane and comes in a sexy high cut on both hips. It also features the brand’s famous enhancing pouch. Sexy and flashy hardly describe this versatile, limited edition style that can be worn as underwear or swimwear, depending on your needs. But what about if going pure gold is a little too much gold when it comes to your undies? Well, you still have many other choices. For something that’s a bit more laid back, yet still gives the true illusion of gold you might want to check out the Male Power Classic Bikini Brief. This pair of undies is made from soft and smooth lycra, which is very light against the skin. They’re the perfect way to add some bling to your underwear collection without breaking the bank or sacrificing style for function and comfort. And if all gold is a bit too much for you, you might want to opt for something with just golden accents. The Sly Underwear Real Mckoy Trunk has a subdued black body, with a unique print of a fish in gold along the side. The trunk also features a wide microfiber waistband with the brand’s logo printed in gold along it. The undies are made from a blend of cotton and elastane, which makes them perfect for everyday wear. Another great choice is the simple and subdued Mosmann Skin Boxer Trunk, which is seamless and fits like a second skin against your body. The trunk comes in black with the brand’s logo printed in gold letters along the waistband and backside of the trunk. In general, gold on black is an excellent and very popular combination, so you should have no trouble finding a design you like.

  • Back To Basics: Classic Black and White Underwear

    When it comes to men’s underwear, funky colors and cool prints might be all the rage right now, but I’m sure many men still prefer to wear classic black or white undies. If you work in a corporate setting, for example, it probably wouldn’t do to flash some hot pink underwear, now would it? But that does not mean that you’re stuck wearing the classic white cotton briefs your mother used to buy for you when you were a kid. Men’s underwear fashion has come quite a long way in the last few months, and even if you’re not quite ready to go for a thong or G-string, the briefs and boxer briefs have also come along way in terms of fashion, functionality and sexiness. So even if you’re a black or white kind of guy when it comes to underwear, there is no need to sacrifice fashion to stay that way. Here are a few suggestions for styles that look awesome in any color, including the basics. 2xist Essentials No Show Brief If you’re looking for comfortable briefs that you can wear all day every day, you can’t go wrong with these. They include all the sexiness you might expect from a 2(X)Ist product, but in a classic, basics version. These feature a superb Pima cotton and microfiber waistband for added comfort and come with a supportive contour pouch. They’re also available in handy packs of 3. Coast Cotton Knit Boxers If you still swear by the comfort of boxers, these are well worth a second look. They are made form a very soft cotton knit fabric, which will keep you cool no matter what. They also feature a loose fit, a convenient single button front fly and a soft elastic waistband for added comfort. You can get these in a 5-pack to save you a lengthy decision process. Cocksox Men's Waistband Brief If you’re looking for something just a little more unique, yet still perfectly suitable for everyday wear, these are just the thing. This brief is part of the Cocksox backstage range and is very sleek and extremely sexy. They’re made from 95% Modal and 5% Spandex, and feature a cool, but very subdued metallic logo. Emporio Armani Microfiber Brief If you’re a true fashion connoisseur then these will complete any look for you. This brief is made from an incredibly soft microfiber blend that will hug your body perfectly, following your natural contour lines. These are certainly a premium piece of underwear, and come with a comfy, contrast waistband bearing the Emporio Armani Men's Underwear logo.

  • How To Care For Your Undies

    Clean underwear is a must. But with all these new fabrics and bright colors, how do you keep your underwear clean without soon having a drawer full of washed-out and stretched-out undies? Read on for instructions on how to care for the different types of fabrics found in your underwear drawer. 100% cotton: The vast majority of underwear is made from cotton. It is very moisture absorbent, soft to the touch and durable, and is therefore the easiest to care for. The main thing to remember before tossing cotton undies in the wash is to separate the lights from the darks. Since all colored cotton will bleed a little even at low temperatures, your white and light colored undies will soon be tinted with other colors if you neglect this step. Wash on medium and, as for drying, cotton handles the tumble dryer pretty well, though you still want to use a lower temperature setting. Stretch cotton: Stretch cotton is cotton with the addition of a bit of spandex or elastane (usually something like a mix of cotton and 5-10% spandex or elastane). This ensures a better fit and longer durability, so proper care is a must with these. Again, you want to separate the light colors from the dark ones and wash on a medium setting. Don’t use bleach on these, and avoid fabric softener, as both of these will damage the elasticity of the undies. You can dry them in a tumble dryer, but use the lowest heat setting. Modal, rayon, bamboo and similar natural fibers: Undies made from natural fibers are very soft, and generally retain color and elasticity very well. However, proper care guidelines should still be adhered to so as to avoid lint build up, and color bleed problems. With these too, you must wash the whites and darks separately. Set the washer to a low to medium temperature and don’t use fabric softener or bleach. It is best to let these line dry, but if you can’t then use a low temperature setting. Microfiber: These are awesome for sports and are normally made of polyamide, spandex or nylon. Undies made from microfiber materials are quick drying, offer great stretch and are very soft. Wash them in cold or lukewarm water and do not use a fabric softener, as this will interfere with the elasticity. Since these dry almost immediately there is no need to use the dryer. Mesh or sheer fabrics: Generally, the rule that applies here is that if it is see-through then it is delicate and needs special care when washing. Firstly, you want to wash your delicates separately, and even here, you want to separate the lights from the darks. Ideally, such fabrics are best washed by hand, but who has time for that, right? So, your best bet is to wash them on a delicate cycle using the cold to warm temperature setting. Do not toss these in the tumble dryer. Instead let them dry flat and out of direct sunlight.

  • Men’s Underwear Must Haves: Jockstraps, Thongs and G-Strings

    Looking for a pair of undies to keep you cool all day long? Or simply something that will offer awesome support, yet still feel like you’re wearing nothing at all?  If so, then you’re in luck. The choices of jockstraps, thongs and G-strings in the men’s underwear department have gotten so varied and numerous that something for everyone can be found. As you may have noticed, jockstraps have been more than just a piece of athletic support for years now. These days there are many jockstrap styles available, ranging from the purely functional to erotic, and everything in between. When it comes to jockstraps, you can’t go more classic that the Jockey Active Cool Jockstrap. This Jockstrap is made from the awesome Coolmax material, which will absorb moisture and keep you cool no matter what.  This jockstrap also features breathable mesh panels, which make these possibly the most breathable jockstrap on the market.  Honestly, if you’re looking for something that is purely athletic wear, you can’t go wrong with this one. However, if you’re looking for something that will give you awesome support even during the most vigorous workout, yet still make you look hotter than your average jockstrap, then you can’t go wrong with the Bike Original Jockstrap. It comes with a 5.75 cm waistband and a 1.9 cm supporter strap, and features a comfy knit pouch.  It’s the go-to jockstrap for many pro athletes, so definitely worth checking out. And if you want something a little more revealing and unique, check out the C-IN2 Grip Jock. This jockstrap features a modern design, but it will still give you all the classic functionality of a well-made piece of athletic apparel. While jockstraps can be very sexy, you do have much better choices if that’s the way you want to go, namely thongs and G-strings. These have long since ceased being just something found in specialty stores. And what better way to stay cool all day long and still have all the necessary support in the front than with a pair of thongs? Don’t want those underwear lines to show through your pants? Try a G-string. It’s almost like you’re wearing nothing at all. Here are some ideas: The Male Power Bamboo Micro Thong is a classic, low-cut thong, which offers a sleek minimal look and is an absolute dream to wear. It’s made form silky smooth rayon that will keep you cool all day long. For something a little more revealing, you might want to check out the Good Devil Horizontal Lines Thong.  This sleek thong will show off your body perfectly, as it is designed to follow the natural curves of your body.  It also offers minimal show-through when you wear it under your favorite pair of pants. And if you want to go all out, you can’t go wrong with the Cocksox Sling Short G-String.  This pair of undies is basically a pouch on a thin strap. But don’t let looks fool you, this will still give you all the frontal support you need.  This G-string comes in many colors, so you can wear it with practically anything and it’s perfect for those long, humid summer days.

And what better way than to start at home? Or more specifically, in your underwear drawer. As you are doubtlessly aware, many underwear brands are now offering more environment-friendly undies.

The cotton is collected in India and made into underwear in an Estonian factory. This factory operates under conditions, which ensure all workers are treated fairly.

  • What Does the Color of Your Undies Say About You?

    So, what’s your go to color when choosing a new pair of underwear? Do you usually choose either black or white, or do you go for something a little more adventurous like blue, red or even purple?  Each color has a special meaning in terms of what it represents and the type of emotions it awakens. Read on to find out the meanings of different colors. RED Red is the color of fire and blood, and most often brings to mind danger, strength, passion, desire, energy and love. Seeing the color red also awakens a very powerful physical response, as it has been linked to an increase in respiration rate, raising blood pressure and even increasing metabolism.  Red is not for everyone, so if this is your color of choice you are likely a very passionate, independent and powerful individual. A great choice for red undies: Supa Drive Trunk by SupaWear YELLOW Yellow is a very soft and warming color, and represents cheerfulness, happiness, energy and intelligence.  All in all, it is a very happy color to wear, so if you need a pick-me up, why not try a pair of yellow undies? It is also considered a playful, childlike color, which means that you are probably an adventurous and spontaneous person if you are drawn to this color. A great variation on yellow undies: Paintball Trunk by Sly Underwear ORANGE This color is basically the combination of the raw energy of red and the joyfulness of yellow. Choosing this color means that you are likely an enthusiastic, determined, creative, and successful person. Orange resembles the color of the setting sun and is full of fiery energy, but not quite as intimidating as red. Awesome orange underwear choice: Essential Boxer Trunk by Mosmann GREEN Green is a very natural color, which symbolizes harmony, growth, and freshness. The top emotional response that green awakens is the feeling of safety. If green is the color of choice for you, it likely means that you are a very down to earth kind of person, who is at peace with themselves and is willing to offer peace and security to others. Green underwear to check out: Lo No Show Profile Brief by C-IN2 BLUE As a color, blue represents wisdom, trust, confidence, intelligence, faith, and loyalty, which are also the qualities of those who choose this color.  So, if this is your favorite color it likely means that you are a calm, dependable and sincere person, who does not like to play games. A great choice for blue undies: Low Rise Brief from Obviously Metallic Collection Purple Underwear: Purple is traditionally the color of royalty, and basically combines the qualities of best blue and red.  If this is your color of choice, it most likely means that you are dignified, independent, creative, wise but also mysterious and powerful. Undies in purple: Low-Rise Trunk by Macpherson So that’s it for the fun colors, but what if you prefer the classics? White Underwear: White is known as the color of purity, innocence, and goodness. It is one of the most common underwear colors for men of all ages, and the go-to color for all who strive for the utmost in cleanliness and perfection. Most brands and styles of men’s underwear are offered in white so the choices are limitless. Black Underwear: The color black is the color of elegance, formality, power, and mystery and symbolizes strength and authority.  It also hides all manner of stains and makes you look thinner. This is probably the top choice when it comes buying underwear, and you’d be hard pressed to find a line of men’s undies out there that does not come in this color. To choose this color means that you are a refined and  strong person who knows exactly what they want and are not afraid to go after it.  

  • Underwear Ads Moving Beyond the Crotch Shots and Ripped Abs?

    As you probably know very well, being a men’s underwear shopper, most of the undies offerings for men are advertised by ripped, hairless, young, and all-around perfect men.  Yet most people just don’t look like that. Sure the newest style of briefs looks awesome on the model advertising it, but how will it look when you put it on?

    As was recently reported in the New York Times, several of the biggest underwear brands are veering away from advertising in the form of almost naked, perfectly chiseled models to ads portraying more everyday people. Even 2(X)IST, the company best known for in-your-face, sexually charged ads for men’s underwear, recently decided to take a more laid back, everyman approach to advertising their offerings. They teamed up with Cedar Lake contemporary ballet company to record an underwear video called Ends.  The video shows ballet dancers Joaquim De Santana and Guillaume Queau wearing nothing but simple 2(X)IST undies as they perform their art.  The main focus of the ad is on grace and beauty and not so much on sexual tension, which is what the brand used to sell their products until now.

    Sure, sex sells.  Everyone at least vaguely familiar with marketing knows that.  But how much is too much? In recent years, many of the men’s underwear designers have geared their advertising and marketing efforts primarily towards the homosexual segment of the population, until a lot of the photo shoots and ads begin to look a lot like gay pornography.

    Andrew Christian, who has gone so far as to feature gay porn stars in his marketing endeavors, springs to mind as a prime example.  There is also Nasty Pig, and C-IN2 who, a few years ago released a series of sexually charged videos and ad campaigns for their Filthy collection.

    All well and good, as long as your target market is made up only of gay men.  But what about all the rest of the male population who are looking to exchange their Hanes tighty-whities for something a little more modern, but are intimidated by all the near-naked men advertising these products?

    Several companies besides 2(X)IST are picking up on this trend of gearing their ad campaigns to be more everyman-friendly.  Mack Weldon, MeUndies, Sleepy Jones and several other brands are taking a laid back marketing approach, focusing more on the clothing than the body wearing it. After all, choosing a pair of undies should be more about comfort and personal style and not so much a lifestyle choice.
