Is it too early to think of spring 2019 underwear? We say never. This is what’s hot in the UK from our friends at deadgoodundies.com.
It’s spring already. When it comes to designer menswear, spring begins long before winter gets underway, especially when it comes to men’s underwear. New season collections sell fast when they land at Deadgoodundies.com in the UK and several early arrivals are already sold out. As DGU partner and fashion journalist Jane Garner explains: “Fashion seasons aren’t about the date, or the weather, they’re about selling patterns. If you want first choice for spring, the answer is to buy as soon as new lines are launched.” This month Jane is taking a look at what’s new for 2019 at Deadgoodundies.
PREVIEW: coming at the start of 2019 to DGU is Bruno Banani’s Flower Skull men’s underwear print on a tanga brief (£22.00) and boxer brief short (£29.00). Skull designs, like camouflage, never drop out of the male fashion line-up and new interpretations of both are coming in the new year.
Jockstraps, bottomless and backless underwear for men, originally developed for sport, have moved firmly centre stage in fashion collections for 2019. Whether you seek enhancement, sensuality or just the right strappy support, there’s a butt-baring design at DGU. Manstore have a new take on the jockstrap in M101!
Even classic colours like black, white and grey are given a fresh look for 2019 with Obviously’s new PrimeMan AnatoMAX anatomical thong, tanga, hipster brief and jockstrap. Each of the five colours – black, white, dark grey, royal blue and scarlet – has a different waistband design
The feel of things to come… This fabric created by Greek designers at Modus Vivendi for their High Tech line (meggings, tank top, tanga, jockstrap, bottomless, boxer and classic briefs in black or white) heralds a strong trend for 2019. These are shimmery second skins imbued with luxury and sensuality.
Doreanse is not a seasonal collection – this brand can be more reactive because they control production from top to bottom. This tanga thong is the first of a series coming in 2019. Insiders at DGU say the tanga now rivals classic narrow-sided bikini slip underwear for men as the top selling micro brief shape online.
Those German masters of men’s underwear prints finish their 25thanniversary year with a flourish – and birthday underpants. DGU has the silky tanga brief shown here and the same B design is used on a boxer brief.
