Many out you out there may not know 4Boys Gear, they are a company out of California that we have covered on the blog a few times. They sent me some underwear to review. They are a company that really prides its self on the quality and comfort of their underwear.

I got a chance to review some undies from the 4Boys Gear line. The pair I have is the Dagger Two Tone Brief in black. I put them on and noticed how soft they were. I really felt great in these undies. They were very comfortable and the covered waistband really made the waist band fit great with out digging in. As I wore them through the day, it was like I wasn’t wearing any underwear. They just really fit better then I thought they would. I was already expecting great things from 4Boys undies, but I wasn’t expecting what I got.

The one thing I was worried about was the pouch; the Dagger Brief doesn’t have a pronounced pouch. Which I really like in undies, its probably the most important thing for me in undies. But they fit great and supported me though my daily activities. I will say I’m really impressed by 4Boys, the cut and quality of the undies make them ideal for daily wear. There is also a fun factor with the image of a dagger on the front of the undies, kind of phallic but these would be great undies to wear on a date. Imagine dropping your pants and having someone see them, it would be just fun!

  • How does it Fit: 5
  • What is the Quality:  5
  • How is it Put Together: 4.5
  • How Does it Look?: 5
  • How does it Daily Wear: 5
  • Over all (average of all above: 4.9

These will go into my daily rotation of underwear, and maybe in the date underwear category. They are really great and put together well and fit really great. Check them out at 4Boys Gear and the Dagger 2 Tone brief retails for $20 on their site. If you go over there and get some tell them their friends at UNB sent you!


On the current episode of Make Me a Super Model, there is a segment about 2(x)ist. To give you a basic run down of the show if you’re not familiar. There is a group of would be models, 16 of them, living in a house competing. There were equal amounts of guys and girls, and as the weeks go on someone gets eliminated every week.

How did 2(x)ist  and Fresh Pair fit in? Well there are two challenges and if the model wins the first one, they get a coveted “Go See.” Where the models go see someone in the fashion industry. On this particular show, it was the first time a guy won and the go see was to 2(x)ist underwear.

But before we get into the visit, there are two models, that go to the 2(x)ist casting are Jonathan and Gabe. I have though about doing a story on Gabe, because if you’re watched the show, Gabe is always running around in his underwear. He’s even commented on how he likes underwear. Which I think is awesome, it proves what we have been saying and many industry people, that straight guys are really getting great undies and paying attention to it. It was even commented when Jonathan picked Gabe, that he was the perfect person to take. As a side note I would love to interview Gabe about underwear, and will try to see if I can get one through Bravo.

They show up at 2(x)ist and they discover they are at a casting call for 2(x)ist. They each get called in, first Jonathan and then Gabe. They meet with Jason Scarlotti, the Creative Director for 2(x)ist and Michael Kleinmann, the President of Freshpair. They each have to put on briefs, and they get photos from the front and back and it’s a over.

The funniest thing is when Gabe leaves he leaves his underwear. Which is a pair of Diesel undies. Jason makes it a point to say he left them and they weren’t a “Fresh Pair.” We also find out that Jonathan has landed a job, but it’s not clear if it’s for 2(x)ist or for Fresh Pair. If we find out, we will let you know.


I hope we can get an interview with Gabe, to give a different view on undies from what you normally see. Its great more and more guys are having fun with their undies!
