try-something-newI was talking on Twitter (if you’re on Twitter follow me @unbtim) and talking to someone who loves briefs/bikinis and he is doing a month long challenge to wear Boxer briefs. His challenger is doing the reverse boxer briefs to bikinis! Speaking from experience as a briefs guy, having to wear Boxer Briefs for for a week would drive me nuts. I do have boxer briefs, like Mundo Unico, Trunks from N2N, ones with great pouches. So I’m not totally anti-boxer brief, but doing it for a month would be a bit much for me.

Now I”m not saying to try something for an entire month. I reward the conviction for trying something new for a month, but I say start small. Some things you might consider trying that you have never worn before. The prime example of this is Jon on our site asked me for a thong to try. He has never worn one and wants to try out a good one. We will be getting him one to try and review soon. It makes me wonder if he will wear to the gym?

My biggest challenge was when I had to review a boxer for Hamilton & Hare. I knew no one on the site would want to do it. I would picture me asking the guys and have silence and nothing but crickets in the background. So I took one for the team. I hadn’t worn boxers in prob 15 years or more. And then it was a rare occurrence. I think I could count on one hand how many times I wore them under pants. After trying those they were pretty good. I but I won’t say i wear them all the time but I have lounged around in them many times.

If you’re up for trying something on the wild side we have a brands we can recommend:

  • Gregg Homme – It’s pricy but extremely well made and will last. It’s sexy underwear made to wear all day from thongs to sheer!
  • Cellblock13 – It’s a fun fetish line from Timoteo and will bring your wild side out. Find Jocks, jock briefs and Jock Boxers
  • N2N Bodywear – Has amazing pouches and plenty of thongs, jocks and more that are made to show off your goods
  • Modus Vivendi – Taking their Greek Heritage and making really fun and different underwear, if you want fun and funky this is for you
  • PetitQ – This is for the bold guy who says what the hell, just let it all hang out! Made super small and leaves little to the imagination

Say you’re a guy who has the wild part covered and want to try something with a classic cut:

  • Baskit – Makes great classic underwear that fits amazing in many different styles from boxer briefs to jocks.
  • Mack Wheldon – They focus on briefs and boxer briefs currently with great materials.
  • 2(X)ist – A classic underwear company that has some really strong core basics in their line up that you won’t be disappointed you bought
  • C-IN2 – Another classic company that has never had great fun undies but also super classic you can wear anywhere.

The wild brands are easier to come up with then Classic. Plus I think more guys would go from classic to wild!

This year we are going to challenge you guys to step out of your box and try new things.

petitqWe know there are many out there who love erotic wear. Its a big area of the men’s market. A brand that is becoming one of the premier erotic brands is PetitQ. We have covered them some and reviewed several pairs from their initial collection.

If you aren’t familiar with them, they out of France and have a very unique and erotic style. The two guys who run it are often seen on Vine, Tumblr and Twitter wearing the brand. They aren’t the only ones models Colby and Brandon have been in a video for the brand late last year. So you may have seen the brand and not known it!

First thing is this brand is not for the meek or the shy. It’s going to show off everything you have! They have pairs with cut outs, held on by friction and fun materials. So if you’re bold enough to wear it you will def get the attention of who you are with or showing it too!  It reminds me of the line from the 80’s band Morris Day and Time “its only for the sexy people”

We are going to point out a few of their styles:

C-String – This pair is becoming quiet popular. It is all the rage in Europe and making its way to the US. The C-String is a pouch with a band that goes between your cheeks and held in place by friction. The boys made a video on how this stays on. They did jumping and such and it didn’t fall off! If you like minimal underwear this is perfect.

Long Johns – I will be the first to admit I don’t find long johns sexy. They are usually function over form. Recently more companies came out but none have put the spin on them that the PetitQ boys. These are very much form over function, not in a bad way thought. They are similar to chaps but have a pouch in the front with an open area and open in the back. They may keep your legs warm but have minimal coverage and easy access.

Bikini Pise –  Have you ever wanted a bikini but with a smaller pouch? I didn’t think that was possible till now. The Bikini Pise has a full waistband and back but a sling pouch. That means its off to one side. It’s similar to their Lateral String pouch design. It’s a very interesting design that is just fun. It would be perfect for a bar night… depending on the bar!

PetitQ is the perfect brand for the guy who wants to show off but is not shy about it.  It’s minimal and very body conscious. This is the kind of underwear that is made to show off. At some point in wearing it you will show it to someone. This is by no means the entire collection but these are three pairs I think you guys should see, go to the PetitQ and see more of the collection.
