Men’s Underwear


Erb6.html.pngFirst its awesome to see Jack Adams using model Alex Misnky. We interviewed him this past year and think he’s an amazing guy. We hope to see much more of him in the underwear market! It’s been a while since we covered Jack Adams and I think we have mentioned this pair but need really did a post on it!

Jack Adams has a really great style. The use of the colors and trim contrasts is something they really excel at, also the design. I think their designs are ones that accent a guys body. The lines of the trim really  highlight areas you want to show off. Jack Adams has their own take and style for men’s underwear.

The title may confuse you but it’s a jock brief. Made our of really breathable material (78% Nylon; 22% Spandex) and in several color combinations. Each combination has the signature dip in the front of the pouch. These would be great for working out or another sporting activity.

They are available at the Jack Adams site for $26.00

home page russiaMcKillop is one who’s not afraid to speak his mine. I talked to him briefly about this collection last night. It’s a way to protest the Russian treatment of Gay and Lesbians in Russia. They created a blog To Russia With Love. Which, Ryan told me, each day the pics will get more revealing.

From McKillop:

“For the month of Feb. we have decided to create a mini collection (Brief$40,Jock$20,Boxer$30 + S/H). We used a red and white printed fabric that is reminiscent to Eastern European/Russian design and we have turned this into a little bit of an awareness campaign for LGBT community in Russia.

Of course the images do not reflect that directly but we have opened up a blog just for the month to post links about the Olympics, The LGBT community/ their laws and treatment but mainly there are a months supply of  some really hot photos. Dean Monroe helped us with dawning his pretty face in our undies and it seems to be getting a lot of attention.

We are running this product and campaign for only this month”

Don’t miss this before they are gone, this is a limited series from McKillop. See pics of the line below

andrew-christian-valenties-peek-a-boo-briefFirst let me start off saying this pair maybe out of stock. But, there are other colors than the limited edition pair. We got a lot of Andrew Christian to review. Over the next few weeks you’ll see them. I choose this pair because it was limited edition and for Valentine’s Day.

Andrew Christian to me makes really great underwear. His Almost Naked and Trophy Boy are some of my favorite undies. They fit me great and are made for a guy with extra up front.

There are several reasons why I choose this pair to review. The first was for the color. The Valentine’s Day inspired pair is red/pink with white mesh in the back. I don’t have any fun pairs for Valentines Day.  The second reason is the pouch is a separate piece and allows easy access. It seems to be a trend to create just pouches that either aren’t attached or just a pouch.

I said above I chose this, knowing I didn’t like pairs with pouches that detach or enhance. When I got to put this on I realized this and thought, “oh no I maybe in trouble.” I slide the pair on and the leg openings were a little tight. It made me wonder if it was too tight through out the day. After I pulled it up, it didn’t feel too tight. I just hoped it would last! Second, I slid my junk through the opening and put it in the pouch. The pouch really worried me. I was worried I would all our and through the day it would require constant adjustment.

As the day went on, I kind of forgot that I was wearing pouch underwear. The initial fears didn’t come through. The pouch was supportive and held me in place all day. I was really impressed. They did a great job on this pouch. The bonus was going to the bathroom all you had to do was lift the pouch up and then put it back down. Next the leg openings didn’t feel tight. I have had pairs in the past that drove me crazy and had to go!

I wore this pair running errands. I knew this would put the pouch to the test. It was about 6 hours of running around and driving. About an hour in I forgot about my concerns and just enjoyed the pair. It amazed me how well the pair felt. There was just the right amount of tension to keep the pouch in place all day. The mesh in back was a great touch too. Its sexy but not over the top.


  • Fun Valentine’s Color
  • Great fit
  • Loved the mesh panels, sexy for Valentine’s day


  • Pull off pouch – some may not like the fit
  • If you have large thighs the pair may be too tight


  • Fit – 8
  • Sizing – 8
  • Construction – 9
  • Styling – 9
  • Daily Performance – 8
  • Overall  – 8.4

This pair was furnished for review by Andrew Christian. It may not be available but find similar pair in different colors on the Andrew Christian site.

valentines-staff-picsI asked our guys, what you are planning to wear for Valentine’s Day. We have a mix of single/dating and gay/straight so where are what some of us will be wearing.


Alex – I’ll be wearing my new Andrew Christian punted tighty whitie jock. It’s a new sexy take on an old classic. Just the fun valentines day needs!!


Shane – Being the special day that it is to celebrate love and infatuation, I will be wearing the color of love – RED!  I will be wearing the newest pair of red underwear that I have added to my collection, the Modus Vivendi metallic loose fit boxer.  It is simply wonderful!  I love the stripes being dark and bright red with a slightly metallic sheen.  They fit great and look great.  These are not your dad’s boxers.  They make me feel confident and look great on.  Love them!


T – I’ll be wearing the Gregg Homme Pump Up Thong, just in case I bump into a guy who wants to start a whirlwind romance then and there 🙂 I’ll be wearing good undies, supportive, but still scandalous.


John – Having been in a relationship now for over 8 years, Valentines Day is just another day that I get to spend with the guy that I love. As for my underwear selection… I think I will be in a jock. My partner loves when I wear a jockstrap, so since the day is about showing him how much I love him, that is the way I will go. I have a cute new pair of Andrew Christians that will be just perfect. It is a pair of his dark red Teaser Air Jock. I love these because they are super comfy and light weight with plenty of room so they are great to wear all day, yet sexy and playful so that what ever happens that night is just as exciting.


Tim (ME) – I”ll be traveling so I won’t have any romantic dinners unless you count having one on a Southwest flight 32,000 feet in the air with 200 of my closest friends. I am going to wear my John Seivers California Gold Brief. This is one of the best briefs I have for traveling. Will anyone see it, NOPE just me but I’ll be in Vegas that night so how bad could it be?

unb-mainWe all make New Years Resolutions, and one of the most common resolutions is to lose weight, or “live healthier.” For me, it has unfortunately become an annual thing. From January to May or early June I really work hard on losing weight and eating right, and as summer gets going I find it easier to eat lighter and be active. But once football season rolls around, the sun doesn’t rise as early and I always fall into the same trap. I succumb to the temptations of bar food and snacks and I stop working out as my clothing gets heavier and masks my physique. After Christmas, the number on the scale is back to where I never wanted it be again when I began the process in January.

I know I am not alone in such a struggle, but if you’re like me when it comes to underwear, I buy the most underwear when I am feeling the best about my body. For me, that happens to be in the summer, when I almost always need to go down a pant size (but won’t because I know I’ll just give into temptation in the Fall), I am tan and look more like a professional athlete than the desk-jockey I am. But if you are like me and give into temptation and start eating poorly as Winter approaches, those sexy briefs that made you look like Apollo in July start to make you feel like Chris Farley in the Chippendale’s sketch.

I don’t think I’d be going out on a limb to say that for a lot of us underwear aficionados, nothing can make you start feeling poorly about yourself than when a pair of underwear you love goes from sexy to unflattering in the matter of just a couple of months. The best remedy to avoid this feeling is obvious–continue to eat and workout like you’re always preparing for Summer. But it’s January, and we are all diligently watching our calories, and working out when we can (right?!). Our bodies, softened from the last two months of seemingly constant temptation, don’t look the greatest in some of our favorite pairs. So what can we do that offers a temporary fix to this temporary (right?!) problem?

The underwear savants here at UNB have long advised our readers to diversify their underwear drawers, so if you struggle to maintain that summer body as you go into the late Fall and Winter months, you need to think about getting some pairs you know you’ll always look your best in, no matter how trim you are. Follow these three tricks to keep yourself looking great and feeling good on your way to that body you’ll have in a few months.

Trick #1: Bigger Can Be Better 







If your like me and your love handles tend to re-appear as you near Christmas,  it may be a good idea to stow away a few pairs in your favorite brands and styles that happen to be a size larger than your normal underwear. XL and L are sizes that are almost always available when the big underwear brands go on sale or clearance on sites like Freshpair.com or MensUnderwearStore.com, so this trick isn’t going to hurt your wallet. And if you’re a Small normally, while you may not find clearance-priced Mediums, those websites always have substantial sales going on. Finally, pay attention to how your favorite brands run for sizing. Big, American labels like 2(X)ist and Calvin Klein run fairly big, which affords you to stay in your favorite styles while only changing size.

Trick #2: Know that There is no “Cut” Above the Rest…

image3                                                             image5                                 
Cut and Fit. These are the two factors that can turn a good looking pair of underwear into a not-so-good looking pair of underwear once you’ve got them on. If you’re like me and prefer more athletically cut, bikini or hip briefs but have been known to put on some weight towards the end of the year, they can get tight in certain areas and loose in others. This is the “cut” affecting the “fit” and this is where the importance of diversity in your underwear drawer really comes in. So if you’ve put on a few extra pounds but maybe Trick #1 is not necessary, a great way to feel better about your appearance in your skivvies is to stock several “cuts” of underwear.

Trick #3: Dial Down the Skimpiness 

Not feeling great in these?                      Try these instead.

No matter what your preference when it comes to your go-to underwear cuts and styles, when you’re carrying some “Winter Weight” you’re going to look (and feel) your best when every thing is covered or contained comfortably and stylishly. No guy carries their extra pounds in the same place as the next guy, but a trick I use in these winter months I call the, “Next-Less-Skimpy Rule.” It’s sort of the cumulative result of the first two tricks but shouldn’t necessitate you going out and buying more underwear.

Here’s how I apply the Next-Less-Skimpy Rule: If I get a pair on and its not fitting how I like it to fit, or it is entirely unflattering when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I drop them to the floor, fold them and pick a pair that provides the next-less-skimpy look and feel. Recently, I couldn’t get my butt all the way into a pair of skimpier Body Aware briefs. I folded them back up and put on a pair of CK hip briefs. I looked and felt a heck of a lot better in an instant.


mr-s-leather-launchMr. S Leather, the ultimate brand in fetish gear has branched out into fetish underwear choosing Timoteo, one of the world’s top underwear designers to make it happen. As you probably know, using Timoteo not only means this is one hell of a quality collection but it’s also made in the USA.

As to be expected, most of this edgy collection of jockstraps and jock briefs all have a base color of black with detailing designed to either highlight your package, your ass or both. The exception is their take on the classic athletic supporter complete with mesh pouch and full 3 inch wide waistband available in black or white.

As for the waistbands, all designs include woven horizontal racing stripes and a rubber patch with the Mr. S. Leather logo front and center reinforcing the whole sport and fetish connection.

A picture paints a thousand words: Instead of us attempting to describe all the new jocks in a lengthy email, just visit Jockstrap Central to see our extensive high resolution photos of our model Derek giving all the Mr. S Leather jocks a thorough workout.


If new hot jocks weren’t enough, here’s even more incentive to shop: For a limited time, when you shop at Jockstrap Central and your product total is $25 or more, we’re offering free U.S. shipping and discounted shipping everywhere else. Here’s the details:

Just place your order and if your product total is $25 or more, USA customers will be offered a free shipping option and customers outside the US will be offered a discounted shipping option (discount is based on 10% of your shopping cart total.) It couldn’t be easier.

We started the UNB Focus group and the guys in it have been amazing. One in particular we ran his guide for the Bubble Butt guy during Christmas and he wrote this great post on Valentine’s I wanted to share his take on what to wear this Valentines day! Enjoy this great post:

homerThis Valentine’s Day, don’t be the guy who shows up for your date wearing these ($10 from Target).  While Homer Simpson is funny, laughter isn’t the emotional response you should be looking for when you undress.

Consider these options that are both comfortable to wear during a dinner date and romantically enticing during those after-dinner activities:

For the boxers guy:


www.undergear.com sells these amazing slim-cut, low-rise boxers for $18 in red.  They’re definitely not your average boxers, and the cotton poplin fabric means it will transition well into the Spring and Summer wear.  Available in S, M, L, & XL.

For the briefs guy:


This is Gregg Homme’s “Target Brief” in red.  It retails for $36, but you can snag it for $30 by ordering directly from www.gregghomme.com.  The brief is 76% polyamide, 24% spandex.  Sizes XS, S, M, L, & XL.

prldOr how about the Good Devil “Contour Jockstrap” in red?  86% Polyamide, 14% spandex.  100% sexy.  Available in S, M, & L for $18 from www.internationaljock.com.

For the thong guy:


This “ILP Satin Micro Thong” from www.prevailsport.com  retails for $21.  It features an inner lift panel that enhances your profile.  It’s made of a nylon-spandex blend.  Sizes S, M, L, & XL.

For the hot-tub guy:


Finally, if your evening involves champagne and a quick dip in the hot tub before retiring to the boudoir, may we suggest Andrew Christian’s new “Swift Bikini” swim brief in red?  The front seam both provides support and enhances your profile.  The shoe lace styling shows you’re a man who pays attention to detail.  80% nylon and 20% spandex.   Available in XS, S, M, L, & XL. $40.93 from www.andrewchristian.com.

Over the last few months the underwear companies who have been on Kickstarter continue to grow. This time brand Jake Joseph is taking to Kickstarter to get more funds to make amazing underwear.

I love the crowdfunding model because it gets money to companies that may not get them through traditional means. Jake Joseph has been a great brand over the last few years. We have reviewed them and they have always done well with our reviewers.

You may ask why are they turning to Kickstarter? One of the reasons is they are trying to bring the price point down for its undies. Currently they are around $36 and they want to drop them to $14-21. Which is a price our readers are used to paying.

Second they are wanting to introduce the ZenSho Trunk and Boxer Brief. The ZenSho. Nameed after a Sumo Wrestling term and is branded the “first underwear not to bunch.” If this is the case then sign me up! That is the biggest gripe behind sizing for me!

There are man levels you can join. We suggest you go to the Jake Joseph Kickstarter page and see them and invest if you can!
