Shane: My favorite jockstrap I own is the Modus Vivendi natural jockstrap with faux leather trim and rope straps. The straps are adjustable to change the size and the faux leather looks and feels real. The natural coloring highlights the design while the unfinished seam down the front of the pouch really is eye catching. Overall, it feels great on and looks fantastic.
T. says: My favorite jock of all time is N2N‘s Classic Cotton Jock. It is not too flashy, or full of features, but by golly it is the most comfortable jock I have ever worn. I love nothing more than to lounge around the house in this pouch. It is so comfortable, while still being very sexy, with its nicely shaped pouch and classic waistband straps.
Jeff says: My personal fav is Timoteo‘s Club House Lace Up Soccer Jock.
Why I love it: Though this pair has a unconventional style, it’s executed in a classic, retro style slim. The slim, tight fit is also super sexy.
UNBTim says: My pick is the Cocksox Jock. This jock is simply amazing. You take the great pouch Cocksox makes and put it on a jock! It’s super comfy and fits amazing. This jock is perfect for wearing under jeans/cargo shots (which I do often) to wearing under a suit! Granted jocks are made for sports and this jock could easily be used for any sporting activity. Just amazing prob the best jock I have ever worn!
UNBAtlBriefs says: My favorite jock is the Obviously Chromatic Low Rise Jock. This jock is amazing! From the texture of the fabric down to the form fitting pouch, I love everything about this jock. It lifts and supports while making sure the good are on display. Almost like wearing nothing at all!

Color to me is one of the most important things in underwear. It allows us to show our personality, even when we have to wear a uniform or suit to work. It adds a personal level to the underwear we wear. We know this because we have heard from you guys that you wear your navy suit to work and a pink jock or purple brief under your suit pants.
Are there any colors off limits in men’s underwear? We may have our own personal limits but companies make underwear in every color of the rainbow. We thought we would share 5 pairs with great color on the market now!

“A great pair of underwear starts with a great design. Period. The design can be inspired by color, shapes, fabric, the male anatomy or anything visually inspiring that translates to design. Every new idea must be unique with qualities that appeal to that particular garment.
Today underwear is a fashion statement. Its not just about the “3-pack” your mom bought you as a kid. When every guy is stripped down to his very last piece of clothing, its the underwear that is making the statement. Guys want that once piece to be something they connect with because of the look, the design and and how it shows off their best assets.
Every pair of underwear I design is influenced by so many things around me. How guys live out in the world. Some are more conservative. Some more fashionable. Some guys live in athletic wear all the time and some like street wear. Each are unique and their is a design that is right for them. There are so many possibilities that keep emerging year after year. The sizes and shapes of their bodies. Its my job as a designer to find out what qualities are important in the designs they wear. Some guys like color. Some guys like certain fabrics. Some guys like design techiques to enhance their anatomy and show off their best assets.
Choosing the right fabrics, top notch construction and a perfect fit are the critical steps to design a great air of underwear. Design, fit, fabrication and construction are the ingredients to create a great pair of underwear that pleases the customer and gains their loyalty. The best part of my job is seeing a happy customer looking and feeling his best in one of my designs.
We manufacture everything in the United States and do this as a way to have control over the quality of the product. Most companies that produce overseas have the same companies design their merchandise that produce it. We feel like this robs the customer of such a unique piece of clothing. PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA is on every garment we ship. And yes, there is pride in knowing that people come back to my designs because we are consistent with our fit. They like our designs.
Each one of our waistbands is created by myself and our graphic team in house. Another detail we don’t leave to someone else. The waistband is a framing device to showcase an original new design. A place to explore the junction of creative design and the limitations of the manufacturing process that goes into making a classic waistband.
Everything I design comes from a very personal place. Having been in business for more than a decade and hearing and seeing how customers respond is an amazing affirmation for my job. The advent of social media is an immediate billboard and feedback for people to tell you what they think by snapping a picture or posting a comment.
I love my clients. I am inspired by my clients and more importantly I love being a fashion designer.”
We posted on our Facebook page and here we were shooting Josh again. We did a great shoot with him as you can see with a car and sports inspired theme. It was a really fun day and we think Josh will go far in the modeling world. This is a picture I took, so the ones our photog took will be amazing!
