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.
COLT started producing gay porn back in 1967 and through the years became known for their macho Marlboro men, construction workers and cowboys. A number of years ago COLT produced their first line of jockstraps but they were discontinued a while later. Well, now they’re back with totally new jockstrap designs and this time around COLT pulled out the big guns using top underwear designer Timoteo to produce the line.
There’s three styles available in both classic black or white for a total of 6 new jocks. Whether it’s the COLT Jock Brief, the COLT Signature Jockstrap with it’s classic styling or the COLT Logo Jockstrap with a throwback to their past designs, all three incorporate a soft brushed cotton pouch with a hint a spandex. The fabric is light and along with the spandex, it hugs your bulge showing it off to perfection. Wide waistbands, one inch straps on the traditional jockstraps and the bold COLT logo say “masculine” without a doubt. For more details and to see Jockstrap Central’s latest model Spence (damn, he’s hot) putting the new COLT jocks through a workout, visit their website.”
Tis the season for new undies, why not have something super fun! PPU has released a new collection featuring this pair with the pink waistband with a cut out below the waistband and pouch! It’s super fun and enjoy!
Were you a fan of the Filthy Collection from C-IN2? Well that collection has been retired and is getting replaced by the Scruff collection. When I sat down with them this past August they told me about this line. The Filthy line was one that was very labor intensive. The filth layer, as we call lit, the black dye was put on the material by hand. So there was no easy way to make the pairs. Granted, it was a really fun line and was a popular line but the new line is a take on the same dirty look but a little less dirt on them.
The new line is just as it sounds, scruffy! The fabric looks like it’s been a little scruffed up rather then filthy. I really like the technique this causes. It’s a slight discoloration of the fabric especially around the seams. It’s not as harsh as the filthy. So if you maybe thought that was a little too much for you, then you need to check out the Scruff line.
The line constructed out of cotton elastine mix and available in three colors. Those colors are Blazer (blue), Repper (greyish) and Rio Red. I love the names that C-IN2 comes up with for colors. They have the usual styles: jock, Lo No Show Brief, Punt, Lo No Show Army Trunk, Tank, V-Neck and Crew Neck T. The prices range from $24-38.
As our readers may know, I am a big time brief guy, wearing them during most days. While this is true, I do also mix in an occasional trunk some days. This isn’t to say that I won’t try any pair (heck, I’m soon to lose my thong naievity). I’m picky when it comes to the undies that are in my daily rotation. You may now ask what drives me to wear the pairs that I do? What is the secret ingredient that make me fall in love with a particular pair of underwear? Guys, here it is, my personal perfect underwear formula:
Pouch: This may be most important. My underwear has to have a reasonable amount of up front to not only hold everything in place but to also allow the goods to breathe. I’m an active guy so finding a balance in this department is key. Therefore, I tend to favor briefs constructed with a large pouch.
Cut: This is mainly an aesthetic issue. I prefer low cut undies to limit how much fabric rides up above my jeans or pants throughout a given day. Ideally, I prefer a brief that has a moderately aggressive leg cut and a trunk that is short on the leg.
Fabric: This is a wildcard. While I enjoy 100% cotton undies, cotton blends and other fabric blends without fabric tend to inhabit most of my drawer. I really need my underwear to be breathable, flexible, and be able to wick away moisture during workouts. If the underwear can do this, then I’m stoked. If I ever was forced to pick an absolute favorite fabric, it has to be modal due to it’s smooth and sleek feel. That’s some exclusive “going out” underwear.
Waistband: There isn’t an ideal size of a waistband that suits me, but for some reason I am more drawn toward the brand labeled waistbands. Waistbands such as CK’s X line and 2xist’s Touch briefs. Waistbands such as these give off much more personality that simply an anonymous band. Functionality is also important and if a pair measures up in the three above areas and has a bland waistband, it will still probably end up in my daily rotation. Hey, I’m describing my perfect pair after all!
Color: This isn’t a major issue to me, but I still have preferences. I own some very bold colored underwear in deep purple, to turquoise, bright orange, and bold green. These are some of my favorite pairs too and are of a variety of cuts and fabrics. However there really is nothing like a classy white or black brief or trunk as a drawer staple. They give such a clean and put together look which I can’t really argue against.
Brand: My drawer right now is dominated by Calvin Klein, 2xist, and C-IN2, but I will literally wear undies made by any designer. I don’t have brand phobias. I love quality underwear. In time I hope to see what others have to offer.
Well everyone, there you have it. That’s my undie formula. Now the question is what is YOUR formula? Feel free to share and join the discussion by tweeting @UNBBlog, @UNBJon, or by hitting us up on Facebook! We love to hear from all guys about why they love their underwear. Share away!
Are you a fan of something fun and metallic? The new Go Go Brief (8647) from Pikante is the perfect pair for you. This collection from Pikante is definitely a walk on the wild side. It’s so wild we can’t promote much on Facebook. I know many of our readers will love the collection. I know for a fact we have a few straight readers who will go crazy over some of these pairs!
The Go Go Brief is available in three metallic fabrics; Gold, Silver and Black. Each one has a snap off pouch. Which allows you easy access for those times when you want to have some fun. We know there are some out there who would never wear undies like this but for a whole set of guys this is fun and something exciting.
The back of this pair has a mesh panel at the top. It’s not a super see through mesh and doesn’t cover the entire back. Its only about the top third of the back. Gives you just enough of a peek. It also has similar snaps that you see on the pouch. It’s a lot of fun.
You maybe asking, “Would you wear this pair?” Honestly, I would give it a try. I think we all need to push ourselves and try something new. My biggest concern would be the pouch. Would it hold through the day? The material is a Polyester/Spandex blend so it should hold you in place and feel good.
If you’re up for something fun then definitely check this pair out. If you want something wilder, this new collection has even more you will like! These should be rolling out to retailers as we speak!
