PT1-13-FullOver a week ago we launched the 2014 Swim Brief Challenge. We want all guys who read this site, regardless of sexual orientation, body type or draw backs to wear one in public. I know it’s a lot to ask for some of you guys but let’s do this, this year!

Back in the day, many years ago I used to rock the swim briefs all the time. It was my swimwear of choice and I hated when I had to wear board shorts. They just were super uncomfortable and too much material. I remember going to Florida with my ex and he insisted I not wear them on the beach. This was a beach that was 99% straight and I don’t think anyone had worn one there in a long time, it was also the mid 90’s and swim briefs were still big in the gay market.

So I complied with his and wore my american flag Speedo brand suit under my green trunks. Yes I still remember what I wore all these years later. At one point I almost took them off but kept my word. Which I was not happy about, but I won’t do this again.

Flash forward to this past year. We did our swimwear shoot and had some great brands participate. One pair that caught my eye was the N2N Stratum. While not a swim brief, the style and pouch caught my eye. So after the shoot I got that pair and wore at the pool after the shoot. It felt great, this was the first time I have worn anything like it in a few years. It felt amazing.

It got me thinking about my advice I give everyone who reads the blog, wear what you want! To hell with everyone else. Granted swimwear is something that is seen more than underwear but we need to all do it. I am going to wear a swim brief this summer! The avatar on my Twitter is a pair from Undergear that I wore this past year!

I want to hear from you guys who’s going to wear and when you wear a swim brief. Email us or tweet met @unbtim and let’s do it

    Have always wore Bikini’s or briefs since my first trip to Europe in 67 ! Even in my Surfer days growing up on Long Island . Couldn’t stand all the material of Board Shorts . . . it was like getting dressed togo to the beach ! And what an ugly tan line . . . .
