We celebrate the accompaniments of some amazing people in Underwear. These people listed have made a major impact on the world of men’s underwear.
Class of 2016
|Andrew Makay launched N2N Bodywear in 1997. Its a brand that has never been afraid to show the sexual side of men’s underwear. His mix of classic styles and erotic wear has made N2N one of the giants in the world of underwear. Andrew brought the world to the notation that men can wear sexy underwear and still feel masculine. His work has become more of an art form. The designs of many of his styles accents the lines of a guy. Which looks super sexy. He and the guys at N2N never cease to amaze fans! You may think the market for N2N bodywear is a gay market but he’s spanning the market. All guys have come to love this brand. His underwear/swimwear/eroticwear is now a must have for underwear lovers everywhere.|
|Jason Scarlatti has been at 2(X)IST since 2003. He has been at the helm of many of the designs. 2(X)IST has brought style to the world of men’s underwear market. He has done this with the creation of prints, colors and stripes. 2(X)IST has created a a true fashion line starting with underwear. Lines such as the Sliq, Speed and Barcode have shown us that classic is definitely sexy. They are now branching out into activewear, watches and even a women’s line. They have seen some of its design changed while Jason has been creative Director. The over all feel of 2(X)IST is classic. However, this is anything but boring. The colors, fabrics and waistbands they use has given them their own aesthetic. I would say 2(X)IST is transforming into a lifestyle brand over just an underwear company!|
Class of 2021
Timoteo – Timoteo / Cellblock 13 / Vaux
Timoteo is no stranger to the world of Fashion. In 2001 he launched his own line. His brand was always known for clean lines and classic cuts to me. Then he ventured into the world of fetishwear with Cellblock 13. This brand has grown to be one of the top fetish brands in the industry. This past year he launched Vaux which has a very different and amazing view on gear.
We add Timoteo due to his eye for design. It can be more classic underwear, fetishwear, or something completely different like Vaux. His designs for Cellblock 13 have influenced an industry to go with more creative and fun designs. He’s now changing gear with colors, prints and not standing still. He’s an innovator that deserves to be in our Drawer of Fame.
Founded in Los Angeles in 2001, Timoteo has become a go-to-brand for stylish men around the globe. Creative director Timoteo Ocampo created his underwear, swimwear,sportswear, and denim collections with the vision of offering customers cutting-edge design, exceptional fit, and unparalleled quality.

The line is offered at brick and mortar retailers on six continents and in nearly every country via Timoteo.net. Timoteo has also gained recognition for its advertising campaigns and video content, helping to launch the careers of some of today’s top models and photographers.
It is through dedication to core company values and it’s innovative and provocative marketing content that Timoteo continues to expand and grow to prominence among the many men’s fashion labels available to consumers.
In 2012, the Timoteo fashion company launched its new label, CellBlock 13. Created and designed by Timoteo, CellBlock 13 is the go to brand for FASHION MEETS FETISH and people all over the world count CellBlock 13 as the one place to find the latest in ‘gear’.

DW Chase – Model
DW Chase is our first model to be inducted into our Drawer of Fame. DW has been a model that has longveity and is an amazing guy. When you think of models you think of guys in their late teens and 20’s, who are doing it for a few years then move on. DW has modeled for over 10 years and shows no signs of slowing down.
From the backwoods of North Carolina to Los Angeles after college, then landing on an island off the coast of Texas, DW Chase has been around the world modeling and taking photos even before selfies existed. Through the internet, we have watched him grow from smooth chested twink to hairy-chested Texas grade beef; while the speedos get smaller, his muscles grew bigger. Every hairstyle you can imagine there is a photoshoot with it. Constant reinvention has made DW Chase a staple in male body photography. With his new website that launched last year, he has finally put a huge chunk of his modeling catalog, self photos, and media content on his Fan Club, giving fans a deeper look into his world and pushing the limits farther than ever.
He isn’t slowing down. With daily updates to the fan club, he will be off to Maui this spring for another round of photos in and out of the latest bulge-inducing, butt-hugging swimwear. You can find him posting daily on his Twitter account @dwchasemodel
