UNB Holiday Guide 2010

Welcome to the 2010 UNB Holiday Guide! These guides are a lot of fun to do, but a lot of work! We start in August contacting all the companies involved, and then have it sent to the photographer, having everything shot then put up on the site. The pairs included are some of what we think will be great gifts for the man in your life or some just for you!

This guide was shot by the awesome folks at NorCalBodz. If you are familiar with our guides you have seen their work on our site. They have done our previous guides and we have profiled them in many Brief Distractions. The models we used in this guide are: Jordan Preston, Rob Patrick, Erik Rossi, Corey Christiansen and Matt McCaleb. We want to thank them and NorCalBodz for doing an awesome job for us.

Now with out any further waiting here is the guide for 2010!

Pipe Underwear


Pipe Underwear hit the underwear scene a few years ago. They make a splash with their innovative photography and designs. But, they didn’t sit back and relax. They have come out with a new line that from the first look is very conservative, but has some great styling. They are using blacks and whites but they aren’t the boring undies of the 90’s. The use of piping and silvers turns the lines into something fun. Pipe Underwear is definitely a brand you should be following!

WildmanT


WildmanT was one of the first to produce enhancing underwear. Two years ago they created the Ball Lifter (R) technology and since then they have come out with a range of underwear to really show off what you have.  As their website says “All our products create the fullest package possible while maintaining style and comfort.” If you haven’t been to their site you should go.

Timoteo


Timoteo is a brand that is really taking off. Known for their incredible photography and great fitting undies, they have taken the underwear world by storm the last two years. It’s very interesting how the line started. Timoteo was head designer at the Baby Phat line created by Russell and Kimora Simmons. He left there and in 2001 created his own store in West Hollywood. He concentrated on men’s clothing but in 2006 he introduced swimwear and the rest is history! The TIMOTEO line recognizes great fashion but also understands that style, fit, and comfort are the key to its success.

McKillop U/W


McKillop U/W is one of the new kids on the block. They were furnished last year and their main focus is jocks. We have many readers who love jocks and wear them exclusively. The head designer and owner Ryan wanted to create a line  of “Jockstraps and Pouches for the men who demand comfort and style without padding and branding being the main focus of the underwear.” McKillop uses colors and mesh to really give a new look to the traditional jock! If you are a fan of jocks you need to give McKillop a once over!

Cocksox is out of Australia and has grown to be one of the biggest brands there. They have expanded and are making in roads into the US Market. The underwear is made out of supplex and is thicker then pure cotton undies. The underwear will conform to your body and is ergonomically designed.

Then, they have some really interesting approaches to taking a classic like a jock and turning it into their own. They don’t follow the regular rules of underwear. They see something and put their twist on it. That includes jocks, bikinis and thongs. Its great to see a company that is doing their own thing.

Do you want something masculine but fun? Then Clever is the underwear for you. Their slogan is “Masculine Underwear.” They want to make underwear for men not afraid to show their masculinity. They take masculine feelings and turn them into prints, patterns and designs. They are fun without being over the top. Men who are confident and driven are the kind of guy that Clever is after!

Baskit is not just a regular underwear company. They are a company that focuses on quality, design and style. You can tell that in the last few collections they have released. The lines would include: Utility, Snugfitseamless and Finelines. So, they are for the true underwear lover. If you buy your underwear in packs of 5, then Baskit isn’t for you. I love that Baskit is not afraid of color. They use bright and fun colors in the underwear. If you like these check out all the lines they offer

Some of the current lines are inspired by cities and places. They aren’t just underwear they also have a very large swimwear and shirt line.

DMK Designs


DMK Designs is a brand we have covered since the start of the blog. It was founded by Diane who is a former Vegas show girl who went back to school to get her MBA and started a men’s underwear line. Diane wanted to create a line because she was tired of men seeing bad underwear. She has come out with some really fun lines. Those included the animal print made out of unexpected colors. Which were some of the most innovative I have seen. She is now working in mesh and has created a pouch that doesn’t have a seam down the middle. I know we will see some really fun and creative designs from her soon!

Gregg Homme


Our last brand is one that is bringing sexy back to the world of men’s underwear. That line is Gregg Homme. They are one of the most innovative with mesh. The current lines are one that really shows off everything.  From their site: “Design is a dialogue of ideas: it appeals, speaks or creates controversy and GREGG HOMME constantly innovates with unimaginable designs and functionalities to feed the insatiable taste of men for provocation and seduction.” This includes using the latest in technology. The example of this is the Bandito line. The shirts and underwear have cutouts with mesh. The fabrics are fused together rather then sown. They are a brand positioned between lust and fantasy.
