UNB Josh talks his favorite Underwear and Love of Thongs
Choosing a favorite pair of underwear is probably as hard as choosing my favorite Kylie Minogue song – there are way too many to choose from, and I’d probably be more successful at choosing the next Presidential candidate with a came of Duck, Duck, Goose. Alas, I must choose, so here we go.
For those of you who don’t know me yet, I am Josh, or UNB Josh as you might come to know me on Underwear News Briefs. I’ve always had a love of underwear – at least as far back as I can remember, so it only seemed necessary to search out a place to share my love and actually put good use to my knowledge of it. That’s how I found the blog, reached out to it, and am now writing for it. If only everything in life could be so simple. I’ve been collecting underwear since I could drive and buy things for myself and currently have two dresser drawers full of underwear and am about to spill over to the third. My drawers are full of briefs, jockstraps, trunks, singlets, swimwear and thongs. All have their place in my wardrobe, but if I really had to choose one style I could only wear for the rest of my life, I’d go with a thong.
So that brings us back to my favorite pair of underwear. I know it’s going to be a thong, but which one? I used to consider one thong (a Calvin Klein tech thong) my lucky pair because anytime I wore it, it seemed like good things would happen. I used to wear it to job interviews, on dates and on test days in college, and it seemed like every time I had it on, I would get the job, get the date to second base (at least) or ace the test. However, just because it’s lucky doesn’t mean it’s my favorite, and sadly, it’s no longer available, so I couldn’t even tell you where to buy it.
So, we’re back to square one – or two, since we know a thong is going to be my favorite pair. I went to my underwear drawer and pulled everything out to get a better look, eliminate and decide. I came down to two for my favorite pair. The first is for everyday wear: the C-IN2 Core Y-Back thong. I’ve always really liked C-IN2’s underwear design. They make comfortable underwear perfect for any occasion, they have many great styles and prints, and they understand a man’s body and what parts should be accentuated. I’ve always been a fan of Y-back thongs because they offer something a little different style wise from a normal thong to make my underwear drawer more unique. I’ve tried different brands of Y-back thongs, but for sheer comfort and everyday wear, you can’t do much better than the C-IN2 Core Y-back thong. I bought my first one in white at an underwear store in Dallas and have since bought many more from C-IN2’s brand website. I love these thongs because they are 100% cotton and can easily go from work to the gym and anywhere else you need to go. They are available in white, grey and black, so they will compliment anything you need to wear, and they run true to size. I’m a medium generally, and wear medium in the Y-Back Core Thong. They fit perfectly. Plus, if you aren’t ready to commit to thongs full time, these are a great pair to get you started with thongs to see if you like them.
I told you I wasn’t able to completely limit myself to one pair, so my other favorite pair is the Blow Jock Thong with from Andrew Christian. As an underwear connoisseur, I have more pairs of Andrew Christian underwear than I care to admit (with more on the way), and I love many styles the brand offers, but after years of wearing Andrew Christian underwear, my favorite style has become the Jock Thong. It offers everything you want from a jockstrap and everything you want from a thong into one incredible pair of underwear. I have several in my drawer and wear them frequently. Out of all I’ve bought, my favorite is the BLOW! Jock Thong with Show-It Tech.
I really love everything about this pair of underwear. The pouch is made out of super soft cotton and has a lifting pouch to bring everything to the front. It’s not a really invasive lifting pouch, either, so it doesn’t become uncomfortable after a few hours of wear. The colors of blue and green are complimentary to each other and are colors you don’t often see in underwear – especially at the brightness brought with these. The band is silver and has a little sparkle to it, you know, just for that extra boost, and the jock straps in the back provide a great lift, too. The thong part itself is very comfortable, just as the pouch, and does not become uncomfortable in the least as the day goes on. In fact, I wore this pair while walking around Stockholm, Sweden for an entire day, and it was comfortable from morning to night.
There are many variations in the BLOW! line from Andrew Christian, which are available on the brand website. You really can’t go wrong with anything you choose, as I love pretty much everything from the BLOW! suite of options. But if you are looking for something new and different, go with the Jock Thong. There aren’t a lot of companies making Jock Thongs right now, so try something new and add to your wardrobe.
