Men’s Underwaer


new-years-underwearWe here in the States don’t know much about this, but our friends in Latin/South American have known that wearing certain colors of underwear can affect your New Years. I think its a tradition we need to start here in the States

Yellow – Not a traditional color here, but it is said if you wear Yellow Underwear it will bring you good luck in the new year. Who couldn’t use a little bit of luck! So I just may break out the Yellow Cocksox Backstage Briefs!

Red – I found this out this year that wearing red underwear is supposed to bring you luck in the love department. If you already have an amazing partner/spouse, you may not need this one. But if you don’t then give it a try, it may be your year to find love!

Black – In many parts of the world it is believed that if you wear black underwear on New Years it will bring you bad luck. So maybe we don’t want to tempt fate by wearing black undies and stick with one of the colors above just to be safe!

Try these out to make your New Years a bit more fun and colorful! Let us know if you did one of these. Pictured undies are from Mundo Uncio Store

EntrancedThe first, Entranced, is a line of undergarments that are soft, shiny, stretchy and very, very sexy. They are made with a sophisticated fabric that features a tone-on-tone hypnotic swirl, tinted in either black or electric blue.

The mini enhancer short has a supportive enhancing pouch with self-binding fabric and low-rise waist. The jock has a supportive comfort pouch, tone-on-tone logo waistband and plush, elastic leg bands. Micro G-String also features the elastic waistband, along with g-string back with a v-shaped fabric insert on the back waistband.

Color Block CireFor something a bit bolder but equally classy, Color Block Cire is just what the love doctor ordered. Three new styles have been added to this popular line, made from the much in demand, wet look cire fabric. They are available in two deep colors, wine/black and blue/black. These very fashionable briefs come as a low rise zipper short in sizes S-M-L-Xl; zipper jock, accented with black, plush elastic bands, in S/M and L/XL; and zipper thong with a low cut one inch back, in S/M and L/XL. All are trimmed with black cire, and designed for easy access.

abcunderwear_2272_10887956I am really excited to get back into the swing of UNB by reviewing this jock. I had a hiatus this summer because I was working at a job with no internet connection…and then moved across the country. So this undies writer is now a Seattleite 🙂 In my new apartment’s mailbox last week, arrived this gem. I had never heard of NDS before I got this jock. I had no preconceived notions, but I was very excited from what I opened. When I first took it out, I saw that it was going with the “new” cut of jock (referring to not just the pouch in front, but more of a brief cut in the front). And the back is a traditional jock (not the brief jock that looks like a brief in back with a porthole cut out) with straps.

I googled my jock and found that it is available in black and a really vivid purple (I got the black).

Upon fondling the pair a bit before trying it on, I became really eager to see how it fit. The fabric is a 95% Viscose 5% Spandex blend, Viscose being the derivative of Rayon (a great man-made substitute for silk made out of cellulose fibers (wood pulp mostly). I’m a sucker for Rayon, it just ends up having a better feel to it than cotton. The pouch definitely had room in it, but the straps felt secure. Obviously, you can’t see this pair without noticing the BIG DEAL, the sexy 1 1/4” gold waistband. It’s pretty bold, but I’ve never shied away from bold undies before. Another few things I like about the undies are the fact that the butt-straps are cut WITH the front pouch, as in, there is no seam where the butt-straps get sewn on. The fabric from the front pouch just glides up and over the hips and then thins out into a butt-strap. The front pouch has a VERY comfortable front seam down the center. I literally had to check with my hand cause I couldn’t tell just by wearing it.

So now, let’s get to putting it on. It fits very nicely, snug without being tight. I am a 34-36 underwear size kind of guy, and Tim sent me a Large which is listed as 34-36”. Perfect fit. NDS makes this pair in small through 2XL, but they do have a 2$ materials surcharge for cuts above XL (I find that a bit annoying, 2$, really?). The butt-straps are pretty much perfect, they are comfortable, sit just at the right place without really needing to do any manual adjustments (except for the first trying on moment, but that’s the case with any jock right?). There is no chance of awkward tag-sightings, because they sewed their label right above your junk. I didn’t even know it was there, I’d risk to say if you go for the “bald” look down there, maybe you’ll notice the tag.

I wore this around town, and to a hot yoga class (more than once). It is probably my new favorite jock. It fits in all the right places, has room in all the right places, doesn’t need constant strap adjustment. The fabric feels great, even after 2 rounds in the laundry (I washed it just like I do all my clothes, cold water wash, medium heat on dryer). My only real negative I can think of is maybe it’s a bit too roomy in the pouch, but I think that’s a personal thing (I’m not small, but I’m not one of those droopy elephant trunk kind of guys either)


  • Sexy waistband/butt-straps.
  • No midday/midyoga adjustments needed.
  • Great feel on skin.


  • Limited color range
  • I don’t own more of them
  • Seriously, I can’t think of any.
  • Maybe a little too roomy in the pouch.


  • Daily Fit: 9
  • Sizing: 8
  • Construction/Materials: 10
  • Styling: 8
  • Daily Performance: 9
  • OVERALL: 8.8

Abc Underwear furnished this pair for review.


The cold is on it’s way but don’t dispair, Nasty Pig’s 2013 long johns are here to keep you warm. Of course those of you schooled by Nasty Pig will be wearing them throughout the fall as smart street outerwear. When winter finally sets in you’ll be ready to slip on some jeans over the johns – just be sure the jeans are low cut as you wouldn’t want to hide that status symbol Nasty Pig logo on the waistband.

Here’s the details:

  • These long johns are constructed of Nasty Pig’s standard extra-soft cotton/spandex rib and finished at the ankles with a slightly heavier layer of ribbed fabric. The fly doesn’t open (non-functional), but the custom Nasty Pig snaps will still grab all the right attention.
  • Finally, a 1 1/4 inch plushed elastic waistband with the fetish inspiring Nasty Pig logo we all love woven and repeated throughout.
  • We’ve got them in four spectacular colors: bold red, a sophisticated faded black (with NP calls Ebony), a military green and steel blue.
  • One word of warming: Nasty Pig sold out of these last year. Order early – don’t be left out in the cold…cold.


Ending on Wednesday, October 16th: When you shop at Jockstrap Central and your product total is $25 or more, we’re offering free U.S. shipping and discounted shipping everywhere else. Here’s the details:

Just place your order and if your product total is $25 or more, USA customers will be offered a free shipping option and customers outside the US will be offered a discounted shipping option (discount is based on 10% of your product total.) It couldn’t be easier.


I have a 27″ waist.

Some people may think I’m joking when I say that, but keep in mind I’m only about as tall as Elijah Wood or Daniel Radcliffe. Shopping for clothes is not as fun for us smaller men because so many things could never fit, even with a good tailor. Most underwear is sized with Small being 28-30″ but there are many where Small can start at 30″. This can lead to frustration and disappointment when you realize that the store won’t accept a return on an opened package and that the Boy’s Section does not carry a 2xist y-back thong. Luckily for my fellow petite gents out there I’ve done some legwork to find brands that accommodate the Extra Small underwear fan.

HOM is a French brand that offers many styles in XS with a nice snug fit. The quality is outstanding and cuts are high on the leg for briefs. If you’d like a break from the current trend of giant brand names on the waistband, HOM offers very clean lines. It can be tricky finding a lot of colors outside of black, white and gray in the XS size, though. Overall HOM is a choice brand for basics with a sexy European edge.

American Apparel

American Apparel doesn’t offer a variety of styles- just a brief and a boxerbrief, but they are available in XS. They come in a rainbow variety of bright, fun colors and are widely available through many retail locations. They have become something of an icon for retro fashion briefs. Personally, they are not my favorite because I find they have a pretty flat, uncontoured pouch and maybe too much room in the back (your mileage may vary). After a few washes things kept sneaking out the leg bands which seemed to stretch out quickly.

C-IN2 offers a few basic styles in XS but the good news is that their size Small tends to be a great fit for XS guys as well. Look for “No Show” or “Low Profile” styles for a great pouch and a low rise. Their jocks fit pretty well too, but could be tighter in the leg bands for that great “strapped in” feeling. I find the built-in “enhancing ring” in some of their briefs overcomplicated and unnecessary, but they do show off the good china. C-IN2 is one of my all-time favorite brands and offers a lot of colors, textures, and prints for the XS underwear fan.



Addicted is a great brand from Spain that offers styles in XS. I have a brief, jockstrap, and jockbrief from them in XS and the fit is amazing. The jocks have nice thick leg straps for great butt lift and they have lot of bold colors and a striking signature waistband. The quality of construction is high, but so is the price tag. My Addicted XS jockstrap is in heavy rotation as my “wow factor” underwear and I look forward to ordering more from them soon.

Mundo Unico

Unico does not make an XS but most everyone agrees that you should order a size up anyway. Their size small is a tight fit regardless, and sometimes it seems their pouches can’t contain all of your enthusiasm. I find the tag placement on the outside to be odd but otherwise they look hot and are well constructed. Their trunks and boxerbriefs have great grip on the thighs and check out their thermals/long johns for the winter months.

Andrew Christian

Andrew Christian is booming now and seems to offer every style and color they make in XS. There’s a lot to choose from- briefs, jockbriefs, jocks, trunks, and even swimwear in youthful colors with lots of contrast piping. The fit in the waist and leg bands for XS is good, and a lot of them now come with “enhancing” or hanging-pouch features for your junk. I’m not a huge fan myself of the “toucan beak” or “anteater snout” look for my bulge but if you like to swing in the breeze then get some Andrew Christian.

Gregg Homme

image copy 7

Gregg Homme makes XS gear that you may not want to be seen folding at the laundry. Alternatively, stacking up a pile of Gregg Homme’s fetish-inspired mesh, faux leather, sheer crotches, zippers, and bondage strap underwear at the laundromat would definitely be a way to get attention!  This stuff is definitely more playwear than daywear but has good construction with a definite attention to textures and fabrics. I don’t think the brand really does anything in “relaxed fit” so you can be sure the sizing will be snug. I appreciate that Gregg Homme doesn’t leave the XS guys out when it comes to dressing like a vampire stripper.

Brands that don’t make XS styles may still fit, but it may take some trial and error based on how close you are. It can be frustrating to buy something and have it look much baggier on you than expected, especially since returning a worn jockstrap can be tricky. Small sizes that are listed as within 28″ generally fit for me but not always as snug as I’d like. Check the sizing chart for each brand, some start at 30″ for Small. A good tip is to look for the ones that have lycra or spandex blended in, as those tend to be cut smaller with room for stretch. Don’t forget that you can try to shrink a cotton garment by washing it in hot water and drying it on high heat.

Underwear Nation is getting bigger, better, and sexier! The men’s online underwear retail site is scheduled to launch a new and improved website and shopping experience at the beginning of August. While the site will still maintain the “underwear of the month” subscription service as the main focus, the underwear shop will no longer be limited to three new pairs of underwear every month.

Visitors will be able to shop the issue and buy any product seen in the monthly photo release. With this, Underwear Nation will begin expanding their product offering to include more cuts of underwear, t-shirts, socks, accessories and more.

“We cannot wait to offer more product to our Citizens,” says co-owner Jerrad Matthew. “Our fans and members have come to trust our expertise in choosing products to feature, and we plan to continue to be as picky as ever. Each product will still be tested for design, quality and fit and will be Underwear Nation approved. We’re just curating a bigger collection now.”

The new website will be spectacularly designed with amazing photography, simple navigation and a clean and more expansive shopping area. Other new features on the site will include the Embassy community and social page, an ambassador sales program, special members only offers, an improved mobile shopping experience and more.
