HOM-plume-string-black-front-1When did you first discover your love of undies?
In the 80’s as a teenager – loved the very skimpy styles that were fashionable then and probably like most guys used to like looking at the catalogues with guys in their underwear – no internet then!!
What style was you favorite when you started to love underwear (boxer brief, brief, jock, thong or etc)
Loved very skimpy briefs from the outset – tanga style were very fashionable and readily available back then. Also bikini brief style Never really liked boxers, have always been a briefs man!
When you bought you first pair of underwear what brand and style was it?
I honestly cant remember! But I do remember going on a first holiday and going to Selfridges in Oxford Street and buying the smallest pair of string bikini swimming trunks – they were really tiny and I loved them! In fact I think I bought two pairs, one black and one bright red and I still love red underwear now!
What influenced your underwear buying habits when you first started your passion (catalogues, internet or friends)
Hope this doesn’t sound too odd but my older brother wore very brief underwear – I used to like trying his underwear no when he wasn’t around. Catalogues too were an influence.
Are there any brands you had to have when you started buying?  Did you ever get a pair?
Right from the outset I loved HOM – string bikinis and their Fredy g strings look so good I think when I first started buying gstrings, Fredy were the ones I bought first (red of course and from Selfridges!)
Did your first pair still influence the styles you wear today?
Yes – have always like the very skimpy styles and although older now I still like and have a number of gstrings, thongs and small pouch briefs that are reminiscent of HOM styles. Love the HOM Plume gstrings!
What is your favorite style today?
I like all different styles but probably tiny pouch brief. Over the past few years I’ve really got to like jocks, and have quite a few pairs of the backless brief/jock style
Who are you favorite brands now?
Still really like HOM, Andrew Christian, don’t have any Joe Snyder but I think they are hot. An annoyance is that a lot of the brands like Joe Snyder don’t make larger sizes for the larger guy – such a shame!
