Undies Rock

  • UNB Name: Undies Rock – I chose the name Undies Rock simply because the do!  This name it is both literal and it doesn’t take itself too seriously, which I think provides a very friendly and approachable presence to my persona on UNB.  I am also very excited to join the blog, and I feel that this name captures that spirit.
  •  Current Location: Los Angeles, CA
  • Where did you grow up: Bakersfield CA
  • What age did you first discover your love of undies? It is hard to recall the exact period in time as I have always been fascinated and intrigued by underwear, but I would definitely say that it really hit me during my freshman year of high school when myself and two other friends picked up a pack of bikini briefs from a Mervyn’s during our visit at the mall, which we planned to use for (at the time) comedic purposes in the locker room before football practice.  I distinctly remember trying them on when I got home, and was blown away by how awesome they were.  From then on I knew I was hooked.
  • What was your first pair of great undies? I would have to say my first great pair, or what I considered to be the greatest pair at the time, were Jockey Elance bikinis.  Though my taste has evolved, these were the first pair that I fell in love with because they were the first pair of seamless flat front bikinis that I was able to buy.  I didn’t really start buying the underwear I wanted until I was in college, and during this time I was working 3+ jobs at times to stay afloat, so I didn’t have a lot money to buy all the different styles and brands of underwear I wanted, so the Jockey Elance 3 pack was my go to style.  I could find great deals on them, so they were affordable, and they fit great and could hold up all day through my hectic school/work schedule, and active lifestyle.
  • What is the last pair you bought?I typically try to order one new pair a week, and actually I ordered another pair today, which was the Jor Africa thong.  I haven’t received it, but I am really excited to receive the pair b/c I have read that the fit a lot like the Croota thongs, except that they actually hold up throughout the day and provide the right amount of support.  I have always loved the look of the Croota thongs, but they aren’t practical for all day use since the sides of the pouch tend to give/stretch out, eliminating the cupping effect of the pouch and eventually just turning into an uncomfortable and distracting mess.
  • Favorite style of undies? My favorite style of underwear would be bikinis; I don’t know why, but that classic white bikini with the seamless unlined flat front has always been a staple to me, but in general I have always been a fan of the bikini look.  I have also become a huge fan of thongs, and even though they aren’t an everyday adventure, they definitely hit the spot when I am in the mood for them.
  •  Least Favorite style?  My least favorite style of underwear would probably be boxers as well as another derivative of a boxer (boxer brief, trunk, etc.).  From my experience they are the least comfortable and least flattering styles.  Also, for some reason I am not a huge fan of jocks, though I don’t dislike them by any measure, I’m never inspired to buy them.
  • Do you wear swim briefs? if not would you?  Absolutely!  I love swim briefs/bikinis, and they have been my favorite for a while.  Over the past few years I have worked up the nerve to start wearing them to beach, and I now I wear them exclusively.  Initially I was a little self-conscious, b/c I thought it might bother people (for some odd reason), but I slowly figured out that no one (especially in California where everyone is too cool for each other haha) cares about what you’re wearing.  After I came to this realization, I became more confident with strutting around a sweet pair of bikini swimmers, and I hope more and more men who are on the border with swim briefs will come to realize this.  Honestly, to me, it makes no sense to wear baggy uncomfortable board shorts, when there are some many benefits to swim briefs (I could write a dissertation on this, but I’ll save it for later haha).
  • Favorite underwear store (online or in person) I mostly shop online for my underwear, and I am a huge fan of MensUnderwearStore.com because they have good deals on brands I like, as well as their  Boxer Bucks reward program.  I also find myself ordering a lot of underwear I cannot find in stores on eBay, but I have to be in the mood for the hunt; I am convinced anything can be found if you look hard enough.
  • Favorite TV shows: My girlfriend and I have become huge Netflix bums, and we often find ourselves having marathon (more like triathlons) binge-TV show-watching weekends (well-deserved in my opinion). Our favorite shows include: Parks and Recreations, House of Cards, Comedy Bang Bang, Making A Murderer, Tim and Eric, Togetherness, and Breaking Bad.
  • What movies have you recently seen? My girlfriend and I used to go to the movies almost every weekend, but we quickly found that (and I hate to have to use the hilarious and undeniably true term) “Netflix and Chill” was a more ideal way of ending our intense work week and easing our way into a fun weekend. The last movie that we saw in theaters was Inherent Vice (we are both huge fans of Joaquin Phoenix). Other movies that I have seen recently and enjoyed are: Jurassic World, People Places Things, The One I Love, The Lazarus Effect, and Creep (I’m becoming quite a fan of Mark Duplass)
  • Favorite color: My favorite color is red, but I would say that my favorite color of underwear would be light blue or lime green, though my mood greatly affects what color of underwear I am into on a day by day basis.
  • What do you do in your spare time?  In my spare time, I like to play music with my friends (mostly rock jams) and spend time with my girlfriend and our cat Bear Pawl.  For the last couple of years our favorite past time in the summer has been going to the beach, sun bathing, surfing, paddle boarding, etc., and in the winter we have been snowboarding.
  • Interesting fact about you:

    • I play guitar and my dream guitar would be a Yamaha SBG 3000 (I am sucker for timeless black guitars)
