We 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
We want to with you a Merry Christmas. We had a very fun year at UNB and hope to have an even bigger year next year. We have some big things on the books, and one of them is a site redesign that should launch by the end of the first quarter. We think it will be a big step forward! Thanks for the support this past year and make sure you tell a friend about it next year. This is a pic is from our Holiday Guide featuring Mundo Unico!
I wish I could say I slaved over the computer and combed through hundreds of sites to get this, but I didn’t. I got this from one of our amazing readers Andy. He helped me on the Endowed Guy post and he had a few pairs in mind when I emailed a few people and then came up with this amazing post. I told him I’m running it in its entirety and he’s getting full credit! I couldn’t do this post cause I don’t have a bubble butt and never experienced this problem. Here is his post:
Stick to briefs and selected boxer briefs. For briefs, look at C-IN2, 2XIST, and Andrew Christian.
Read about the pairs we suggest for the bubble butt guy
We know there are a ton of you who love Boxer Briefs/Trunks. For many of you it’s your daily go to style. We thought we would bring some suggestions for the Boxer Brief guy. Each pair on the list we have tried here and can highly recommend them. So if you have someone you want to buy you underwear, give them the links to these guides and you should have a great present under the tree. If you have any more let us know and we’ll share on social networks, comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We have all kinds of underwear lovers on the site. There are those who love the wild and to wear a pair of white briefs would be blasphemy. It goes against everything they hold dear in underwear.

I get the chance to review another Unico Boxer! It may sound like it’s not the typical for me but Unico makes one of the few boxers I liked. The previous ones were great, so this one I had high hopes as well. This one unlike the rest is made out of a 93% Cotton, 7% Spandex blend. I loved the design of these too, colorful and fun. Unico is not one company afraid to use colors or patterns. So I put I through it’s paces.
I wore this pair to work on an average day. The day wasn’t too active. It was mainly office work and hanging out with friends after. Being a day that wasn’t too active I didn’t think it would be much of a challenge for the pair. The one thing that I noticed was the legs opening stretched out a bit. For Unico that was strange, granted it wasn’t very bad but still annoyed me it happened. All the other pairs I have reviewed have really held up great. So for this one to have a few issues was odd to me. It wasn’t bad but it was just noticeable to be annoying. The materials seemed to be the same as previous pairs, so I’m not sure why this pair did this didn’t hold up.
The sizing for Unico is based on Colombian sizing. Meaning it definitely runs small. I would suggest that you get a size up in whatever size you get. For example if you’re a medium I would suggest getting a Large. The pair I reviewed was an XL, which did fit my 36 waist very well. If you get much larger you may have issues. However, when I was a 40 waist I could still wear my XL. Not sure if that was I loved them so much or if they fit!
As I said I really liked the pattern. They are known for their amazing prints and patterns. Unico really isn’t afraid to step outside the box and use prints you don’t normally see in men’s underwear. The pouch is the second thing I love. Unico makes some of the best pouch underwear on the market. It’s one of the things they are known for, and if you look back on the blog then you will see we have consistently named it as one of the best for pouch design. As for what I didn’t like was the fabric. It lost its shape and made the legs looses their shape. This is the first time I have ever had a pair of Unico do this, so not sure if its just the pair or in general for the cotton/spandex blend.
- Great fun pattern
- Amazing Unico pouch
- Matching waistband
- Fabric didn’t fit well
- Lost shape around lets
- Daily Fit – 6

I am back with another Boxer Brief from Unico. Notice a theme here! I have one more pair to review as well. I was hoping for some briefs too but this is an all boxer brief Unico review! I posted the last review and it was a glowing review. I am still surprised that I loved it as much as I did. This pair is a shorter boxer brief and a cotton/spandex blend. I have reviewed a few of these over the years and again like the last review, hope they hold up !
The pair I am reviewing is the Simplicidad Boxer. Which is a blue and yellow striped boxer. Its made out of a Cotton/Spandex blend. So when I put them on they didn’t feel as great as the (name). Which is not necessarily a bad thing. I was keeping an open mind. The color and the way they make the stripes form a v in the front is one of my favorite things. Unico always pays attention to these details.
I wore this pair to work and errands after work. It’s was going to be a little more intense then my previous reviews. The daily grind at the office wasn’t bad. I had no issues with the pair. It felt really good and the pouch gave me ample support. The true test was with the errands I ran. I had to go to a warehouse club, shop for shots and go to the grocery store. It may not sound too bad, not like running 5 miles or doing a 2-hour work out. A good pair of underwear will live up to daily wear with out issues. This pair held up well. While I didn’t like the cotton blend as much as the previous nylon blends, it held its shape quiet well.
The sizing is the exact same as the previous pair. Unico is a Colombian brand and they are always smaller then US sizes. This means you should always buy a pair up from your normal size. Unico will not stretch to fit you, if you get a size smaller. They are quite uncomfortable if you do. I made this mistake once and I will not make it again.
What I liked about the pair… I loved the stripes and the way they always create the V in the front to show off the pouch. It accents what you have and makes it look great. That is if that’s important to you. Next, is the great Unico pouch. They have never let me down on this one. They have designed and made a pouch that is designed for a guy. The waistband is another area I love. The Unico branded waistband with the U in front is a great touch. The things I didn’t like were the fabric, which is only a minor dislike. Had I not reviewed the other pair this would not be much of an issue. But I love more stretchy fabric such as nylon/spandex.
- Fun stripes
- Great Unico pouch and stripe construction
- Designer waistband
- Fabric is my only minor complaint
- Daily Fit – 9

Unico is one of my favorite brands of all times. So when I go into a new review I always hold Unico up to high standards. In fact, Unico was one of my first pairs I ever paid over $25 for. So my history with the brand runs a long time. Over the years I have enjoyed everything from thongs to boxer briefs. Which for me is rare to like an entire range. So, when I got the SER boxer brief I was excited and a little worried. I haven’t had much luck with longer boxer briefs, but it’s made out of a nylon/spandex material that I love.
I put them on and instantly they felt like a second skin. Meaning I put them on and they just felt amazing on me. You maybe saying, “Tim but you are not a fan of the boxer brief” and you would be correct. Most lose their shape or don’t offer me any support in the pouch. These are just the opposite. They kept their shape and gave amazing support with the famous Unico pouch. The material was super soft too. I have tried a few other pairs of Unico but not sure what made this material so much better.
The day I wore these was the typical at work. A lot of sitting and getting up you do at an office job. As the day went on I forgot I was wearing boxer briefs. The support feels more like a brief, which is a big bonus to me. The only time I noticed them was when they showed below my shorts (yes I’m lucky I get to wear shorts to work), but I don’t think anyone noticed or cared. The fabric 93% nylon/7% spandex would breathe and not trap moisture.
The sizing on these tends to run smaller. They are based in Columbia and as most Colombian brands run a size smaller. For my 36 waist they fit me fine. However, if you are buying them I would suggest going up a size no matter what size you are. So if you are a 32, get a Large or you maybe sorry. Getting a size smaller, you will regret it and they are not forgiving.
What did I like about the pair? Well first is the fabric. It was super soft and fit me like a glove. The longer legs stayed in place and I forgot I was wearing a boxer brief. I loved the blue color as well. The one thing that annoys me most is when there aren’t colors in underwear and it’s just black or white. The last thing I liked is the amazing Unico pouch. It’s really is made to fit a guy. As for what I didn’t like? I can’t think of anything other then make in more colors.

- Fit me like a brief
- Great blue color
- Pouch give amazing support
