Waistbands – To have or have not
We have two different guys. Those who love waistbands (like myself) and those who do not like them. I am firmly in the camp of having fun and amazing waistbands. Logos and names don’t bother me at all. Sometimes the waistband is the reason why I buy a pair. It can really set a pair off. This post we will talk about which brands consistently have amazing waistbands. This is also, is a primer on what brands not to buy if you hate waistbands. The brands that really outdo themselves on designing of waistbands are Andrew Christian, aussieBum and 2EROS/SupaWear.
Andrew Christian has consistently created amazing waistbands. Most of his lines carry different kinds of bands. Sometimes they include the name of the brand and other times it’s the line. Lines include Trophy Boy, Blow, and Massive just to name a few. One of my favorite bands he has created lately is the FUKR line. The black band with small writing in orange. It’s different and fun to me! I think Andrew spends as much time on the waistbands as he does the underwear!
aussieBum has bands that are for branding. They always have the aB name on it. I can’t recall off the top of my head when they last did a band that didn’t. aussieBum can have classic bands like the Classic Original. This basically their take on the classic brief. The only thing classic is the design. The colors and fabric are super awesome. My favorite brand by them right now is on the Grizzly line. It’s a chunky thick band that has aB written in BIG letters. I love the design as well! Watch out I maybe reviewing them soon.
I think 2EROS sees the waistband as an extension of the underwear. It is designed to complement and sometimes match the underwear. Every detail with them is thought out and nothing is left to chance. The newer underwear has the name of the brand and sometimes line. The one line that I think I like the best is the Vavoom line. The brand matches the color of the underwear. It’s genius!
Underwear waistbands are almost like an art form. I’m not knocking any brands for not doing them. They take work and money to create. Give me an amazing pouch, incredible fabric, and no waistband and I”m still sold. The waistband is something extra for me! I’m curious are you guys for waistbands?
