  • Styling – 10
  • Daily Performance – 10
  • Overall – 9.8


  • Unique and thoughtful details

  • Some issues with the tights sliding down
  • Higher price point

Call them tights, call them leggings, call them whatever you want. They are a growing trend in the world of athleisure wear, and I am here for it! I was excited when the opportunity presented itself for me to try Matador Meggings.

When I first slipped the tights on, I immediately noticed that they really molded to my body in a good way. They aren’t as tight as some compression pants I’ve tried, but hugged my body more than traditional tight. I found it to be just the right balance and great support for a workout.

The second thing I noticed was all the small details, which really help Matador Meggings stand out from their competitors. As someone who loves to wear tights to the gym, it can be annoying to figure out what to do with the things that I typically have in my pockets when I wear shorts. Where do I put my phone, wallet, keys? Matador has thought of all of these things and provided not one, but two pockets! One pocket has a zipper to keep valuables such as your wallet or keys secure. The second pocket was perfect for holding my phone. There is also a loop in the back where you can run a towel through so you’ve got it handy to wipe down your gym equipment. These details make the tights ideal to wear to the gym or to run your errands, or both!

So how did these hold up to a workout? Pretty good! The only issue I had is that I did find they slipped down through my workout. This is not uncommon for me as my butt is on the big side, but there were moments where I definitely knew my thong underneath was on display. I decided to try working out without anything underneath and found that the slipping didn’t happen as much. I’ve also been informed that a new design will be launched soon which includes a drawstring, which will eliminate that issue.

You might be thinking, wearing nothing underneath your tights? Can you do that? What about VPL? No worries! Matador Meggings thought of this and has provided a soft cup in the crotch to prevent visible penis line. I really appreciate this feature because even though I don’t mind showing off online, sometimes VPL is a bit much for Midwestern suburban gyms. For guys who wear shorts over their tights, it’s time to ditch the shorts and wear tights with pride, without worrying about showing it all off. If you are a guy who likes to be more on display, you can easily remove the crotch cup and let it all hang.

Overall, there’s little that I don’t like about these tights, and the issues I did have are going to be rectified soon with a new design. I do hope that future product releases include full-length tights (the current design is 3/4 length) and shorts. I know the higher price point will be of concern to some guys, but I feel these tights offer a lot for the money. The attention to design details and their sustainability efforts help Matador Meggings stand out from many other brands. I’ve already got my eyes on some of the other designs!

  • PAIR: Matador Meggings Navy/Blue
  • COLORS: Variety of colors & patterns
  • FABRIC: Feather-weight, sweat-wicking, 4-way stretch, polyester & lycra mix fabric
  • SIZES: Small – X-Large (27″-36″)
  • COST: $88.00

Gone are the days where Gymwear is grey sweats. In the last year or so spandex and other form fitting gym wear is coming out. More guys are rocking the tights at the gym and are skipping the shorts over them!

One company making in roads to the work out wear is 10|11 is making a fun and fashionable work out line. Don’t worry if you don’t want the mesh tights above they have regular gym shorts and even sweats, but made stylish!

It’s great to see more companies doing Gymwear. I think this is a line that is amazing. This shows the design skills and creativity of 10|11. They are designing outside the box and doing something new and fun.

You may not wear it to the gym without shorts over some of them but there is something in this collection for everyone. I think you may step out of your comfort zone and try something different for the gym.

Check out the entire collection at 10|11 Men site!

Is it me or are singlets popping up everywhere. I do love me a great singlet and one of the big names in the fetish arena have released their own singlet. Nasty Pig has released the Code Singlet. Which is a very classic singlet with a very Nasty Pig design.

“Singlets are best served classic. Nothing is sexier than the true college wrestling shape.” Nasty Pig designed a singlet that you could see on a college wrestler. Meaning it’s a very classic cut and design. These are my favorite singlet designs as well.

Some things to know about this singlet

  • Fits true to waist size – go by your waist size when purchasing this singlet.
  • Designed to be worn tight – this is a no brainer but if you’re new to singlets it’s going to be tight all over.
  • Engineered print – they have put their spin on the singlet and the design is very modern and fun.
  • Made of athletic grade polyamide spandex – A great fabric for being active in.

The new Power Stretch line is something you may want to check out.

Power Stretch comes in a legging and short. Both have base color of black. However, there is a touch of color on each one. Those colors are red and blue. It is used in the trim and select pieces of the leggings. It’s classic and not over the top. Some of you love over the top but there are just as many who want something more classic.

Here are some information about both styles from Timoteo:

The main body of both styles is

  • Compression: Ultra-tight, second-skin fit for a locked-in feel.

jack-adams-402-126ls-bYou all know that Jack Adams does great underwear. Did you know that they also do workout wear? They have some really great active/workout wear. Working out is no longer the land of gray sweats. Guys want something fashionable but also functional for a work out. One of the new pairs the Relay Air Track short.

The Relay Air Track looks like a cross between old school gym shorts meets new sports mesh fabric. I really like the retro feel of the pair. You may go, “wait a minute, sports mesh? How can I work out in these? I don’t want to flash the entire gym or people I run by.” Don’t worry the shorts has a lining that will not give everyone a show!

The colors available are red, navy and white. My personal favorite is the Navy out of the color combos. It’s a new spin on a classic cut in the world of workout wear. Jack Adams always does something fun and different. This is in both underwear and work out wear.

These are perfect for the gym, running or hanging around the house. The high cut side will allow for maximum movement. Meaning they won’t restrict any movement. Since, as the Jack Adams site says, is designed for sportsmen. If you like this pair and want a longer pair they have the same design in a gym short.

These are available directly from the Jack Adams site. We will have more from Jack Adams very soon. We are loving their new underwear line. So stay tuned for more in the next week or two! In the mean time enjoy these shorts!

2016goalsN2N is back with some new shorts and sweats for your workout! It is the Mercury line, and to me it looks futuristic! This is a line that makes me picture the type of stuff you would be wearing when you picture the future.

This new line is made for our modern life. The shorts and sweats include pocket on the side designed to put your phone into when you work out. The site doesn’t say if it will fit the biggest phones out there, but in the photos you can see an iPhone in the pocket. This is a nice thing to include since technology is a part of life and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

These items feature a fabric that has a shine to it. That adds to the futuristic look to me. There is also a slight polka dot detail on the fabric which adds to the interest in the pair. According to N2N you will want to hand wash these items in cold water.

You will also want to be careful with what products you use around these items. The site says chlorine bleach, oil (like lube, suntan lotion, and baby oil) may break down the special matte coating on the fabric. So I would not recommend these for sexy time, just for working out.

Both the shorts and the sweats feature an inside drawstring, and are made to be slim fit. They come in Mercury Black, Mercury Gun Metal (gray), and Mercury Pearl (white) colors. The black feature a gray stripe down the side, the gray and white pairs have a black stripe to add contrast.

These are made with 92% polyester and 8% spandex, so they will likely have some stretch with them.

The shorts will run you $40 and the sweats are $48.

Once again a fun set of shorts and sweats from N2N to make you look great during your workout. And as always their products are made in Los Angeles.

COLORS: Mercury Black, Mercury Gun Metal or Mercury Pearl

N2N Bodywear furnished the R30 USA Runner for review

Rating: 9.4/10

• Daily Fit: 9/10

• Sizing: 9.5/10

• Construction: 9.5/10

• Styling: 9.5/10

• Daily Performance: 9.5

Pros: Fun, styling, fabric/material, great durability.

Cons: none.

pleep recommendations: If you are a fan of N2N tights then you will love these.

I have worn and own a lot of N2N gear by now, and def have had quite a few pairs of tights by them. I absolutely love the styling on this pair, and of course, they used a nice soft fabric for the tights. The color choices are Silver/Black, White/Grey, Blue/White.

I wore these shorts around the condo as well as to the gym. I have worn N2N tights (or runners) to the gym before, so I already knew that with their cut they will slightly show off your package and butt, but with the coloring combo of this pair doesn’t emphasize your crotch or rear too much so, this makes them very gym appropriate or even out on a running trail.

The size I received from them was a L and it fit perfectly everywhere. They are def cut to the standard American size L, so if you normally wear a L then go on and buy a L for this one too.

CS7-16-2N2N Bodywear Furnished the Cotton Sport Runner for review.


  • Overall – 9.2
  • Fit –10
  • Sizing – 9
  • Construction – 9
  • Styling – 9
  • Performance – 9


  • Incredibly comfortable material/fit
  • Amazing front/pouch
  • Great style


  • A little short for tall dudes
  • Pricy

Undies Rock Recommendation: The combination of material that is breathable, light and Stretchy. A style that is flattering for all shapes and sizes are the key components for comfortable pants. N2N hit it out of the ball park with this pair.

Undies Rock here, about to drop knowledge on one of my personal favorite pieces from N2N!  Behold, the perfect “I’m working from home” bottoms – the CS7 N2N Cotton Sport Runner pant. As many of you know. I am a huge fan of the N2N brand.  It’s no surprise that their active/loungewear is as amazing as their underwear and swimwear. Gentlemen, if your ultimate goal is to work at home in class and comfort, than these pants are your fix!

First off, this pant is pretty much the men’s version of a legging.  I know this might be a little taboo. All I have to say to those “real/tough/whatever men” out there, don’t knock it till you try it. If you don’t think these are the most comfortable pants you could try on, then you need get real.  Trust me, for all of those “manly” guys out there who are too scared to wear form fitting, legging type pants. Then you are straight up missing out on: 1) absolute comfort, and 2) the ultimate display of your manhood. So go ahead and continue wearing those slopping, unflattering, excessive basketball shorts. But don’t come running to me asking where I got these sweet-ass man leggings because guess what?…I told you so!  Alright I said my peace, and enough with the rant and on to good stuff!

As I previously stated. The Cotton Sport Runner is essentially the men’s version of the legging. It’s a tight fitting, low rise, sporty, knit pant that hits lower to mid-calf (I’m a taller dude at 6′-5″ and it sits mid-calf on me).  I can’t emphasize the tight fit enough. These are supposed to conform to your body, and they totally will.  And as a disclaimer, if you are afraid of undie lines and plan to wear these out. Then you might want to pair this pant with a thong or g. This pant is incredibly low rise, so if you’re a brief guy then maybe a sport bikini might be a good option.

I have the heather grey color option in size Medium. I am roughly between a 33”-34″ waist and I’d say it fits true to size since the medium is rated for a 32”-34.”   The material is relatively thin. The 94% cotton and 6% spandex material allows generous amounts of movement while retaining the right amount of support for all dudes of different sizes. One of my favorite features is the flat, seamless front; HUGE plus in my book.  This flat front design naturally conforms to your package with just the right amount of support. Without being overbearingly tight. The construction of the whole pant is quality. I have machine washed and dried these pants at least three times and I have to say that this pant is resilient. The material is still elastic and the color has remained true.  I have been a huge fan of N2N for quite some time. One of my biggest pet peeves with the brand is the quality control on sizing/cut.  I will say that all of the pieces I have from this current collection are spot on with the sizing and fit. So I would like to applaud N2N for stepping up their game.  This generation of runner is currently offered in a hunter green, royal blue, and heather grey.  I have the heather grey. Which is a little transparent, but honestly I kind of dig it, and so does my girl 😉 The other color options are darker so I’d bet they are less revealing.

Right now you can catch this awesome runner directly on the N2N website for $46 large.  I know this is a little of an investment, but entirely worth it if you aspire to bask in total comfort.  I am huge fan and collector of runners. This is definitely my go to pair for those days when you are hanging around at home.  The combination of material that is breathable, light and Stretchy. A style that is flattering for all shapes and sizes are the key components for comfortable pants. N2N hit it out of the ball park with this pair.  Thanks for answering my prayers, N2N!

The N2N  Bodywear TT2 TriTech Runner was furnished by N2N Bodywear

Rating: 8.6/10

  • Daily Fit: 8/10
  • Sizing: 9/10
  • Construction: 9/10
  • Styling: 9/10
  • Daily Performance: 8

Pros: Fun, bold design, great durability.

Cons: Awkward pouch in crotch.

pleep recommendations: If you are a fan of compression shorts at the gym or wearing them just out and about.  these would be good to look at. The color choices are Navy, Hunter and Black.

This pair was the first time I had worn shorts from N2N. I have worn their tights, jockstrap, thongs, singlets before (and the shirt that had been in the previous review) but never shorts. Consequently, I didn’t know what to expect from them.  The fabric, like all N2N items felt amazing and was super soft. The cut of course was very sexy, but with how these are cut.  They may not be the most practical at a gym if you either have a large booty or package or go to a conservative gym.

I wore these shorts around the condo as well as to the gym. I had first worn them around the condo and had loved how they felt while wearing them.  They do not ride up if you do a lunge or a squat. I then wore them at the gym. Which is when I had gotten a lot of heads to turn, for two reasons. The pouch in the front has your package very much so on display, and the back is designed to show off your… assets.

The size I received from them was a L and it fit perfectly everywhere. They are def cut to the standard American size L, so if you normally wear a L then go on and buy a L for this one too.

  • Daily Fit: 9/10
  • Sizing: 9/10
  • Construction: 9/10
  • Styling: 9/10
  • Daily Performance: 9/10

Pros: Durable, nice fit, good fabric, well designed

Cons: Doesn’t allow body to sweat like other workout gear

pleep recommendation: If you are not a heavy sweater when at the gym.  Or want something comfy/sporty to run around town in then I very much so recommend this tank.

I wore this shirt around the condo; around town and also at the gym. I have owned and worn N2N gear before. But never tried any of their shirts so I was def looking forward to trying out their shirt and see how it worked for me. When it comes to the gym, I def push myself, so by the end of the workout I am usually quite sweaty.

The sizing for this shirt was what I had expected. I had received a L and it fit me snugly like I would expect a compression shirt to fit. I would say if you can fit into a L for some of the other workout brand clothing than you can also fit into a L for N2N.

What I loved about this shirt was the overall cut and fabric they used. The only downside to it is I wish they would have designed the back to somehow help cool the body off some. I know a lot of other workout brand clothing companies will use a form of mesh or other fabric to draw the sweat away from the body.  if they had done this, then I would have 100% loved this shirt and wanted more of them. As is, I really like it, but I do still recommend this shirt for people to get.

JOR (2)


Candyman Fashion furnished us with some great pairs of the JOR Workout collection to review. 

JOR – Logo Black T-shirt

I received a black long-sleeve style shirt from JOR, my first impression of it was comfy and light. This was the first thing I have ever tried or worn from this company. This particle shirt does have a white version as well; its cut is the same.

I wore it around the condo and around town, it was quite comfy. It was a regular, non-active day, and with how well it felt by the end of the day I have no doubt that this shirt could take a beating and be fine.

I received a size large from them which fit me like a glove.

In terms of likes and dislikes for this shirt, I loved the fit and fabric for this shirt. I wasn’t a huge fan of how the neck opening was, but after a while I got used to it.

5 RUNNERSDid you make a resolution to work out more in 2016? Or do you want something a little more fun to wear to the gym? If you answered yes to either of those questions this post is for you. Runners have really come on strong in the fitness world. They are being worn at the gym, running or cross fit. They can be worn for extra support or maybe comfort. We have selected a few of the newest pairs for you guys!


You may know Aronik as the swimwear company. This year they have branched out and created a line of runners. The line is called Command. It is available in three colors: Coal (pictured above), Vino and Blu. Each one has the Aronik name on the right thigh. Each pair retails for $90. Find the Aronik Command Line at the Aronik Site.


If you don’t want to wear the runners with nothing over them. You should try the Junk UnderJeans Raw Street Runners. They can be worn solo or with something over them. The front has a breathable mesh panel as well! The Raw Street Runner is available in Aqua, Green (pictured) and pink. Don’t let the pink fool you black with pink accents. Made out of 95% Polyester/5% Spandex blend. The Raw Street Runner retails for $40 on the Junk UnderJeans site


Looking for a pair that is fashionable as well? Rufskin has been making Runners for years. The Lynx is one that isn’t so over the top that you can’t wear them to the gym. Some runners they have made are super sexy and may turn a few too many heads. The Lynx runner has a stripe that goes up the legs and back to accent the body. The olive has a shiny wet look finish. The black has a more rubber like appearance. The Lynx retails at $82 at the Rufskin site.


One thing we haven’t covered too much is color. There are some of us out there who love to wear color in our underwear and work out wear! JOR has released the JOR 0220 Runner Long Pant. The blue is a bright fun blue with a white stripe down the side and neon waistband. If you’re looking for something less bright they also make it in a black with a yellow stripe! Made out of a 96% polyester, 4% spandex blend.  Find the JOR 0220 Runners  at the Candyman Fashion site for $55.48


The last pair we are going to cover is the 2EROS BLK AKTIV line. These are basic black with a 2EROS waistband. Much like the Junk UnderJeans listed above these can be worn by themselves or under a pair of shorts. It’s made from a 95% Polyester / 5% Elastane lightweight fabric that will wick moisture away. Perfect for working out in. Can you go wrong with basic black? The BLK AKTIV Compression Tights retail for $89.95 AUD on the 2EROS Site.

Check out these five great pairs of runners. We are sure there will be one pair you will love!

NOTE: UNB Tim does consulting work for Candyman Fashion but the opinions in this post are his own


IMG_0104What’s neon green, partially mesh, and went for a run in the park today?

My N2N Sheer Skin runners. Being a nylon/spandex blend these neon green runners definitely hug every part from ankles to waist, every part. That means that, well, they show. Really show. And why shouldn’t they? Even if the neon green wasn’t flashy enough and showy enough there’s always the peak a boo mesh tushy to show off. Let’s just say, there are things to see when wearing these.

So this morning I took off for a great local park with both tree covered trails and out in the open paths. And I took off wearing my runners and a cute neon pink tank-top because if you’re going to go bold, go BOLD. Now, the N2N runners don’t have a built in pouch so the fabric fits and cradles the goods to make its own pouch. At first it was nerve racking, seriously everyone that I ran past on the way to the park, at the park, and on the way home could see…everything.

There were looks and there were looks. And then, I just got into the rhythm of running. In the park I took both covered trails and open paths. I passed many other runners, some who glanced and some who just were focused on their run. Oddly, it was freeing, super freeing. No one said anything, no one objected or called me out and if they were thinking something they kept it to themselves.

This run was for me. To push myself to do something that I wouldn’t normally do. Before this part I had really only wore these runners with short shorts over them or just lounging at home. But hey, it’s Fetish Friday and I wanted to be adventurous.

Now, as far as the runners themselves go: They are super-hot, aesthetically. The nylon/spandex blend feels really great, very comfy. However, they don’t like to stay up very well. Now, I have a little bit of a white boy booty but I still found the runners trying to slip down over my cheeks. It would require a pull every so often, just to keep things up. Overall though this was a very freeing, very exciting, and very “out there” experience. Will I run in them again, of course 😉

Like underwear, you want something different than what your friends are wearing. Not every guy likes to go down to the local sporting goods store to find work out wear!

BCNU is a company we have covered but not a lot of the blog. I originally found them on Facebook and have posted a few Brief Distractions with them. But I think it’s time we give you a showcase of what BCNU is and what they have to over.

BCNU stands for “Be Seein’ You.” They started in 2011 in Sydney, Australia and as they say “To fill a gap in the 10933870_982771388417210_4610298344889770371_nmarket with an effortlessly cool, stylish sportswear and streetwear label that didn’t seem to exist at the time” Now the market for men’s activewear has taken off. It’s one of the biggest growing segments in the men’s fashion market.

What do they currently offer? Their products are divided up by Sportswear, Streetwear and Accessories. But don’t let the labels fool you, BCNU wants you to be able to wear their gear 24/7. It can be stylish in the gym or on the streets.

Like most activewear companies they have shorts, sweats, tanks, shirts, hoodies and socks. The new 2015 collection has some great Sportswear. The Arena Sporty Short along with the Academy Tank are my personal favorites. Clean and both great work working out in. The streetwear has some cool hoodies and the ones that are coming in to fashion big time, the sleeveless hoodie!

Last thing I want to mention is the socks. They have only three pairs but those who LOVE socks are going to flip for these. They call them Sporty Socks. The socks are calf level or over the calf in right bold colors. The Navy sock is my favorite, but really all three are amazing. They not only look Great but will perform great. The compression aids in circulation and incorporates Blister Management System. So they are fashion and function.

If you’re interested in BCNU, head over to their site and check them out! You should know they do offer free shipping world wide!

Either way they are great pieces to wear to the gym. I love the new collection. See more at the C-IN2 website.


DSThis past month we brought you a write up on runners and spandex. It seems there is a return to form fitting work out wear. Ruskin is one of those brands who has always had the runners and shorts. Each year they release new pairs. I will say that they tend to make some of the hottest work out /active wear gear around.

The two paris we are going to feature are the Bonk! and Zut! The Bonk! is a pair of shorts and the Zut! is a pair of runners!


The Bonk! really reminds me of the shorts back in the 80’s when spandex shorts first came on to the market. Companies didn’t hold back and made some amazing pairs with the brightest colors. It would appear to me that Rufskin has reinvisioned the shorts in a modern cut with new bright colors. I also say they channeled the 80’s because of the stripes on the legs really accents the legs. That is one thing about spandex you can build the seams to really show off and accent what you have! Here is what they say about the pair:

“These are no ordinary bike shorts. As with the other styles in our “LOUD!” athletic collection, we’ve used a combination of bold colors to create another unique piece that will stand out from the crowd. Constructed from shiny royal blue spandex, these tights feature swooping twin stripes wrapping around the side of the left leg. The white and gold bands are punctuated with a sliver of deep navy blue piping, creating a striking and stylish piece that looks great layered under volley shorts or simply worn alone.” Retails for $48


The Zut! is a longer pair of runners that reach the ankle. Much like the Bonk! The Zut! have a two stripes that run down the legs. I really love these. They say you can wear them alone or under something. I think with pairs like these you need to show them off without anything over them. I have to point out the orange piping/stiching on the pair, they out did themselves. Here is what they say about the pair:

“This design takes our basic black running tights POW!, with their seamless sides and shiny spandex, and adds a vibrant infusion of color with wide asymmetrical stripes extending down the full length of the right leg. The royal blue and purple bands are punctuated with a sliver of bright orange piping, creating a striking and stylish piece that looks great layered under shorts or worn alone.” Retails for $58

Both os these are reasonable priced and averrable at the Ruskin site!
