Featured underwear of the month: 2Eros Core Brief / 2Eros Core Boxer / Supawear Supafly Jockstrap
New pictures from C-IN2 feature model Anthony Moufarej. You may remember the last collection featured Mike Stalker. This shoot was shot by photog Rick Day who is a long time photog for C-in2. Here are the latest images from C-IN2 campaign.
Info from C-IN2:
Fitness model Anthony Moufarej first seen in the “A week in the Life” photo/video shoot for C-IN2 by Rick Day. His Facebook page states he was “born in Lebanon and moved to Canada at the age of 13. Started practicing a couple martial arts like MMA, boxing, kickboxing and grappling and modeling not too long after.”
Anthony’s smoldering good looks and chiseled physique made him an easy choice as a Rick Day and C-IN2 model.
Features the Prime and Core collections
Prime the premier men’s underwear collection has a softer than soft feel yet manages to retain its shape. Prime boasts a new, thinner width microfiber elastic waistband that is retro with plenty of chic.
Core, the essential C-IN2 men’s underwear collection. The best fitting everyday underwear is made unlike any other. With custom weighted 100% cotton and a microfiber waistband, the super soft Core underwear line keeps its shape all day long. Especially important when you want to undress and impress.
I got this topic from the Twitter chat last night. As more guys get into great underwear is it a gateway to other fashion including shoes, better shirts and pants? Over the last few years I have lost weight and have gone through a few lay offs so fashion has taken a back seat.
I looked through my closet and saw a bunch of geek shirts (Dr. Who, Firefly etc), polo shirts and t shirts. Not what you would call the cover of GQ material there. Then I looked in my underwear drawer and saw Gregg Homme, Andrew Christian, Baskit, Cocksox and tons more. I have better underwear then clothes and it got me thinking it’s time to step outside of my box.
This kind of started back in August. While at Magic I got tickets to see Celine Dion. Then I made the realization that I didn’t bring much grown up clothes. So I went to Ross, yes Ross Dress For Less, on the strip and got a nicer shirt and some better jeans. The jeans were low rise and had designs on the pocket really out of my comfort zone but I did it. I felt better about myself.
Flash forward till last night and I mentioned that Jason Scarlatti told me about a shoe company at magic. When Tweeted he said “Best dressed starts with underwear and ends in shoes..and coats, and accessories” and I couldn’t agree more. I have been better dressed in my younger days and plan to be going forward.
I will admit that I stepped up my dress at magic this year. Before I thought I looked schlubby. Meaning it was an untucked polo and reg jeans. This time I wore a button up shirt all three days and better jeans. I am going to do much better in the dressing, granted right now it will have to be on a budget but it can be done!
This makes me wonder. I know many gay readers already mix great fashion with undies. They have underwear for different activities and outfits. But, for those getting into it and are fashion challenged (I consider myself in this category, and can be gay or straight), will great undies inspire them to expand their horizons?

In Vegas I had Arthus and Nico stop buy, the two behind PetitQ underwear. We did a quick shoot with them. I’m not the best photog but they turned out better than I thought with the lighting we had! Enjoy
On our Twitter chat last night we talked about how to get great undies for a really good price. The Baskit $12 Tuesday is a great way to try new undies at a great price. You don’t have to spend $30 on a pair to get great undies. This week is the Simple Trunk, great colors and a classic design. Also go under specials to see more deals
I will admit I”m a fan of the AC line for it’s pouches. In the previous reviews I wore the Almost Naked and Trophy Boy briefs. This time I have the NanoFit Breeze Brief. I have one other NanoFit brief and it’s one of my favorites. A friend gave it to me and I love it. So when I got the chance to try another I was all over it.
I was looking forward to trying the NanoFit Breeze Brief because I had a busy day. It included a Lunch with a friend moving this month, followed by shopping with another and Dinner with other friends. So it was going to be on the go. ATL was a little warm, well for this winter, 60+ degrees. So I wanted something that wouldn’t make me too hot.
The first thing I noticed was that the pair breifs really breathes. Its made out of a light weight material that had a great pouch that conformed to me. There is nothing I hate more than a pair that looses shape during the day. So I got my air cut that morning and headed to lunch. The pair really felt great, gave me ample support but the test was going shopping. Running around for a few hours I forgot what I was wearing.
This is giong to be in the top of my underwear drawer. As many long time readers know the top drawer are my favorites for every day wear. It will go in my usual rotation.
The sizing for Andrew Christian is pretty good. I got an XL to fit my 38 (and hopefully 36) waist pretty well. In previous reviews the legs were a little tight and this pair didn’t have that issue. The legs fit great and no binding at all. Make sure you double check the sizing chart when buying.
- Great fit
- Has the great AC pouch
- Made for an active day
- May not be good for a winter day (but perfect for summer/spring)
- Sizing can be an issue (always check chart)
- Daily Fit – 9
- Sizing – 9
- Construction/Materials – 9
- Styling – 9
- Daily Performance – 9
- Overall – 9

A few weeks ago I decided it was time for me to try some different styles, branch out and buy a few things that I wouldn’t ordinarily wear. I found this hot item at a decent price ($19.00 at freshpair.com) and decided to give it a shot. Knowing that I would likely never wear something like this as daily underwear I wanted to just see what it was all about. And much to my surprise I quite like it. Pouch front, suspender straps, thong back. After I got over the feeling that I was having some sort of “Borat” moment I actually started thinking about when and where I could pull something like this off. If nothing else, this will definitely make lounging around the house more interesting.
Would you or have you ever worn underwear like this?
Are you a fan of mesh underwear? This is new of the new pairs from Clever. I’m not sure you’d go on the beach in them but they are a slight mesh that will show off but now expose everything. This is the 5190 Calipso Mesh Latin Brief

This week I have been having some conversations with some readers and new guys we have coming on the site. We seem to always talk about bikinis. I am a big fan of them and have been since I was a teenager. One of the very first pairs I bought were bikinis. Reasons I like them is they usually have a great pouch and higher cut sides.
One brand that I have seen and want to try is Geronimo. The 1358s2 has a bikini cut with specially designed pouch. You can see that in the pic the pouch has a circular seam over the top of the pouch. Which gives it a really cool look. It makes me curious as to how the pouch fits. The material Polymide/lycra blend! I really want to try this pair.
It’s a classic bikini cut which really interests me. Over the last few years this style has not been but in a few brands. Each year briefs are making a come back and more and more guys are wearing them. I think it will be only a matter of time before bikinis are big on the market again.
The only place I have seen this pair is at Concupisco. They are out of the UK and this pair retails for £20.99 and available in blue, yellow and white.
