American Eagle



When it comes to what would be considered “high end fashionable.” In clothing there has been the reality that samples and models are made for the thinner. We’ve seen this in the world of women’s fashion for ages and for men’s fashion as well. We’ve also seen the small but persistent backlashes and pushbacks of such realities. Because the real-life reality is that most men and women don’t fit into the model like form.

The pushbacks have generally, yet not always, been on the side of women’s fashion. We’ve seen lines and brand highlight “plus size” women in certain campaigns. We herald them as breaking the all too restrictive fashion mold. The spotlight has not always shown as bright on the world of men’s fashion.

Often if you’re not rail thin and lanky or tall and muscular you will not see yourself reflected in men’s fashion.  Especially not men’s underwear fashion. Now, gay centric underwear may go a bit further than the more broad based brands. Even still one generally would have to turn to brands specific to “bears” or just burlier men.

An unlikely source of a mold breaker is coming from American Eagle! Aerie has just launched a campaign for the everyday, every shape man. Hallelujah! The new campaign called #AerieMan has four models of varying sizes and showcases the men doing everyday things in their underwear.

Campaigns and brands like this are important to everyone, even those who do fit the general model description. Diversity and self-image love affect every single person. The more that we can do to celebrate and acknowledge the beautiful differences in ourselves the better.

American Eagle has always had a fairly solid men’s underwear selection. Often full of bright colors, fun designs, and goofy cartoons. They have solid trunks and good briefs. I have met many people for whom AE underwear was their first step outside of old Jockeys that their parents bought them. And American Eagle has continued to work on their style and their branding. Offering a higher end selection than their goofy cartoons. It is these undies that are on display in the campaign.

Love your body. Love your curves. Love everything that you’re working with!

So cheers to American Eagle and go check out their trending #AerieMan campaign today.





ae-underwearHey guys, I’m Bryce. You know me from doing the video reviews on the site for the past year. I am a Portland kid who loves the outdoors and anything plaid.

So right now my favorite pair of underwear that I own….and there are hundreds of pairs…is trunks by American Eagle. I recently started shopping at American Eagle and of course had to check out their underwear. So the pairs I have bought are 96% cotton and 4% elastane. The material is really soft to the touch and comfortable to wear.

American Eagle makes lots of fun colors and prints of their underwear. I bought pairs that have ski lifts on them, a pair that is trees, and one that is covered in Christmas lights. It is a fun way to get a color and pattern on your underwear without being a traditional pattern you would see. They also put out underwear designs to go along with the seasons.

The pairs I have are trunks, but there are several different styles to choose from. American Eagle makes trunks, boxers, and briefs. I love my trunks because they come in two different lengths. I have some of the 3 inch trunks, and some 6 inch trunks. The longer ones are good for moving around a lot since they don’t ride up much.

What I love is just how comfortable the under is. It is smooth against the skin and most of the pairs wick moisture away from the body when you get warm. I love having a comfortable pair on that you can forget you are wearing them.

The pairs fit amazing. I got smalls which are what I normally wear in every other brand. The material stretches nicely to fit over my bubble butt. The pair didn’t become too stretched out either, from my movements throughout the day. The one thing is there isn’t much of a pouch, so for guys who need that, these might not be the most comfortable.

You can get the underwear at any American Eagle store inside most malls in the United States. They also have them online at I got mine on clearance, and paid around $4 a pair for them. Most of the time the pairs are on sale as well for buy one, get one half price.
