You know the eternal mantra in fashion that ‘less is more’? At Deadgoodundies that’s always translated perfectly into sales. The smaller the product, the better it sells on this UK website dedicated to male undies and swimwear. Thongs have always been a best seller, for years rivalled – but always beaten – by micro/bikini briefs. But now tanga cuts are nudging their way to the top. Men like the minimal fabric, maximum room to manoeuvre an active body and a flat waistband that serves as side straps. But most of all the sporty look works best with the athleisure fashion trend.

A tanga by any other name. Different brands call men’s underwear cuts by different names, but a tanga is basically two triangles of fabric suspended from a smart waistband, and joined underneath. Designed well, these underpants offer good coverage and support – and maximum style. The MAX XV also happens to boost the boys beautifully!


If you’re already a tanga man, Modus Vivendi is a go-to collection for undies that enhance and flatter the male physique. Their colourful cotton tanga trios are quite a treat…

Modus Vivendi Cotton Tanga Multipack (3 Pack) £36.00


Of course it’s essential the cut of a tanga is absolutely perfect. HOM’s version comes in the softest cotton modal fabric that still offers just the right support.

A subtly sporty option in white, black, grey or a great deep blue.

HOM Classic Tanga Brief £18.00


Teeny tiny tanga kini… Minimalists will adore the colours and contours of Joe Snyder’s famous tangas. This one comes in a single size only to fit 28″-36″ waist. Always a huge choice from this collection on DGU.

If you prefer something more sensual then Manstore is the name to watch. This double strap design is just one example of a constant supply of sexy underwear for men from designers who delight in risqué.

Manstore M712 Micro Tanga £30.00

The thing about a great tanga on DGU is that it will sell out FAST. This Rio Tanga from Olaf Benz has been an instant hit – perhaps because of the intense colours or the shimmering fabric. Again, one of many from a collection that’s never shy of showing off.
