Skivvies Underwear


The temperature here is cold by Dallas standards.  However, that hasn’t prevented Texans from shopping at the area’s top underwear retailer, Skivvies, in preparation for Valentine’s Day. Below are three of the locals’ top choices in anticipation of love’s favorite holiday.

PrimeMan Hipster Brief

Australian manufacturer Obviously’s newest collection finally incorporates stripes!  Locals are snapping up pairs faster than Godiva chocolate truffles disappear at a Weight Watchers meeting.  

Composed of a soft, four-way stretch blend of MicroModal and Lycra, the PrimeMan Hipster Brief (pictured in red/navy/white) retails for $32.  The yarn-dyed stripes will never bleed, run, or fade if one follows the garment’s care instructions.  

The brief incorporates Obviously’s AnatoMAX anatomical pouch feature, which provides natural body positioning and virtually eliminates the need for readjusting.  Garment care instructions are printed inside the waistband to eliminate the itching and scratching associated with sewn-on labels.

PrimeMan Jock

Jockstraps are selling well in Big D, and enthusiasts also turn to Obviously for choosing a ’strap in red.  The PrimeMan Jockstrap is #1 in Dallas.  

Engineered to provide freedom of movement for active guys, this jock sits low on the hips and features the AnatoMAX pouch.  The deep navy leg straps are a perfect 20 millimeters wide.  

The waistband is shorter, which makes this garment perfect to wear under your favorite low-rise jeans.  The PrimeMan jock retails for $25.

Unico Trunk

For those Texans wanting something festive for Valentine’s Day – but in a slightly less risqué silhouette – Unico’s “short boxer” perfectly fits the bill.  

A contoured pouch provides excellent support.  An M.C. Escher-eque square pattern (shown in steel-grey/blue/red) provides unique visual interest to this more traditional cut of underwear.  And the fabric has an unbelievably soft hand that invites touching by anyone lucky enough to see it up close.  It retails for $32.

Skivvies has Dallasites covered, whether they’re looking for a trunk, a brief, a jock, or something even more daring this coming Valentine’s Day.  

Many thanks to Skivvies owners & staff to opening their doors to UNB.

Not going to lie. I have always felt a little intimidated going into men’s underwear stores. Something about the idea has always been uncomfortable to me. I’ve visited stores in St. Louis, Seattle, Portland, Dallas, Atlanta, the Virgin Islands, and probably a few more places that I can’t recall. That feeling of, “Is anybody watching me right now,” has subsided. Why? Because I started blogging about my passion for this industry.

untitled-design-4This past week, I had the awesome privilege of having a 12-hour layover at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). What did I do, I rented a car for a few hours and headed on over to Skivvies Men’s Underwear Store in the Oak Lawn District in Dallas proper. Now that I have a new found confidence in who I am and a way to talk through my passions for men’s underwear, I can easily walk into stores and talk with the men and WOMEN shopping about their likes and dislikes. I find it really exciting to tell people about the blog (your blog) and what we are doing in the industry.

untitled-design-5After I found a parking spot (a bit challenging), I walked in the front door and was greeted by Steve, one of the clerks working. He introduced himself and gave me a few tips about browsing such a large store with a massive selection. He let me be and only emerged if I looked like I needed assistance.  I like this when shopping. I’ve been to malls in other countries where people follow you around trying to get you to buy something–annoying. Once I took my initial look around, I introduced myself to Steve as an Assistant Editor here at UNB.  He’d never heard of us. I asked if I could take a few pics with my iPhone. He called management and go clearance. The work began.

untitled-design-6This store has dozens of brands with a great selection of styles, cuts, prints, patterns, and sizes. I spent an hour in the store and could have spent two more hours. This was a great experience. I found N2N Bodywear, CockSox, Papi, Calvin Klein, Jack Adams, Pump!, Cin2, Obviously, Skivvies (they have their own brand), Gregg Homme, Saxx, WildmanT, 2Xist, Nasty Pig, and dozens more. They didn’t just have these brands, they had their collections in a full run of sizes.

Steve introduced me to Paul, the other clerk working that day.  We had a great conversation about how underwear can be a confidence booster, is normal for gay, straight, and bi dudes to enjoy, and of course–THE BLOG.  Paul is a great conversationalist who understands the industry and seems to enjoy helping others find what they want. I enjoyed talking with Steve and Paul and look forward to seeing them next time I visit.

untitled-design-2Because I was in an awesome men’s underwear store, I had to make a few purchases. I am proud that I didn’t immediately kick into pouch snob mode and buy things that I know work for me. Instead, I opted to purchase things I haven’t tried–pouches that interest me. You will have to wait and read my reviews to know what I brought. I can’t give everything away today.

Right when I got ready to check out, Steve encouraged me to walk upstairs and check out their clearance floor. You heard that right–Skivvies has a clearance FLOOR. There are hundreds of pairs of your favorite brands on clearance in this store. I didn’t see trash, I saw treasures. It was awesome!

Although I had a blast chatting with the sales team and purchasing underwear, I found something else to be particularly intriguing to me–the customers. Not only was the store packed, there were all types of untitled-design-3people perusing fine men’s undergarments. I saw women mixed with guys of all flavors and orientations. People were engaging in conversation about men’s underwear.  Customers were asking each other for advice and people were chatting in a very friendly way. I fit in–not because I found a straight guy, but because I found others who have a passion for this industry out in the open discussing their likes and dislikes.  It wasn’t sexual. It wasn’t gay. It wasn’t straight. It wasn’t even fashion. It was normal!

Thanks, Steve and Paul at Skivvies for showing me around, listening to my passions, and sharing yours. I hope everyone reading this will take the time to check out Skivvies online store. If you are in Dallas, go in person. It will be an experience you won’t regret!
