Alongside leopard spots and camouflage, lace has become a fashion perennial in men’s underwear. Every year or so there are headlines about lace becoming a new ‘thing’, but it’s here to stay – and has been for a while at in the UK. Male lingerie made its debut more than a decade ago (remember HOM’s 3001 collection?) yet true lace designs, rather than translucent tulle or mesh, are still considered more daring, outré and, for some, risky. Fearless Brits are consistent buyers of lacy undies, from micro strings to long leg boxer briefs and leggings, skin tight t-shirts to wickedly wonderful bodies. Good job DGU sends everything in plain parcels!
