Boyfriend Present: $53 McQueen Man Panties

Before his death last month, designer Alexander McQueen was working on a line of men’s underwear or, as we’ll refer to them, manties. We feel the creations deserve a name of their own, not just because their creator was an awesome man, but also because they’re a bit too snazzy to just be referred to…

Banana Fibers Make Tighty Whities Breathable

Comparing a man’s package to a banana is nothing new. But now, this organ is getting linked to bananas for more than its physical shape. AussieBum, an Australian underwear company, has created an eco-friendly line of men’s underwear that is made from 27 percent banana fiber, 64 percent cotton, and nine percent Lycra. (AussieBum use…

Jacques Magazine “Sports” Issues More About Skivvies Than Squash

Whether it’s the mesh thong, bralessness or excessive butt-to-wall friction that’s convinced us is hard to say, but somehow we think that the Jacques Sports Issue is as much about sports as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is about competitive swimming. That said, given Jacques’ tendency to celebrate all things buxom and nearly naked,…

Maxi-Spanx, Anyone?

As if thigh-slimming Spanx weren’t embarrassing enough, the company now makes these torso-covering panties. The brief style comes attached to a panel of super-tight elastic material, which goes up so high it sits right under your boobs. Wonder if they’ll start making these with a bicycle-short cut … aw, hell, might as well just make…

May We Introduce You To Denties?

As we watch them get ever thinner and tighter jeans certainly seem to be on a pretty clear trend path. Taking that notion to extremes, Topshop presents these “denim look” boyshorts (OK, so they’re not real jeans, but still). What would you call these? Denties? Junderwear? Jeanderpants? [$8, Topshop]…

Reason #359 To Always Wash New Underwear Before Wearing

So, you know how you’re supposed to wash underwear you buy before wearing it? Well, that always seemed like a silly rule to us, but there’s a reason for it. Apparently a lot of stores will let you return underwear and bathing suits, even if they appear used, and then put them back…

Nothing Sells Video Games Quite Like Thongs

You know how sometimes you’re out and talking to some dude and somehow the topic of conversation gets around to working out or muscles or some such thing and all of a sudden he’s flexing for you? Or, worse yet, doing that thing where he makes his chest muscle dance? No? Just me? Whatever, it…

J-Wear Anti-Smell Underpants Keep You Fresh For Days

What if you could go for days at a time without changing your underwear? This sounds like a guy’s dream, but we’d have to admit it’d tickle us, too. (Seriously, is it just us, or do you go through tons of pairs throughout the week?) Now there’s J-Wear, a very limited-edition underwear collection that came…

Someone Wasted Lots Of Money On Audio For Megan Fox’s Armani Video

Megan Fox’s video for Emporio Armani underwear has two key things people will be looking for: Megan Fox and underwear. Why waste thousands of dollars on the music? Shrug.

Can This Underwear Get Rid Of Cellulite?

Everyone hates cellulite, which explains why the market for products that claim to rid your body of those unsightly spots is so saturated. But the sad truth is that while you can buy a million creams, it’s really exercise and genetics that determine just how affected you’ll be. The latest company to create an anti-cellulite…

Granny Panties

I’m somewhat sorry to say that I gave up my thong panties along time ago. The truth is I only wore them once and that was enough for a lifetime as far as I am concerned. There is nothing sexy to me about having a ribbon of material stuck up my butt. It may sound…

Would You Pay Thousands For Lingerie?

The other day, I was reading the Red Sole Bride blog, which always has the most amazing wedding and bridal items. She asked her readers: “Brides, have you thought of wearing something special for your husband-to-be on your wedding night (other than your wedding gown)?” Rather than something strictly bridal for the bedroom, she wondered…

Elegant, Old-School Lingerie At Anthropologie

Not every girl feels comfortable in vampy lingerie. And now, those of us who prefer more demure underthings can stock up on bras and boyshorts with a dash of old-fashioned glamour at Anthropologie. The store has several sets of “underpinnings” that are more modest than the usual bedroom attire; however, just because they aren’t slinky…

The Brief Is Back

According to the New York Times (and they’ve been on a real roll this week), when it comes to the male undies category, it’s all about the brief. When did the reign of the boxer come to an end exactly? It’s impossible to be certain, but it could have something to do with the recession:…

Look, It’s A Push-Up Bra For His Junk!

Finally, we ladies will understand the disappointment men experience while delicately unhooking a lady’s bra … and realizing it’s a push-up. Fake out! Oh, well. Menfolk looking for help will find that the Shock Jock briefs and boxers by Andrew Christian aid immensely in the cantilevering department. It’s got “extreme frontal enhancing technology,” which i…

Hanes Gives ‘Em What They Want—No More Itchy Labels!

The worst is when you got an itch you can’t scratch. You know, one of those ones in the butt area or anywhere in the nether region sphere. A lot of the time the fault is due to pesky underwear labels that make it feel like you have god-knows-what up against your crack. Hanes now…

The Key To A Man’s Relationship Status Is In His Underwear-Buying Habits

If your guy lets you buy his underwear, then he thinks you’re “the one.” That’s according to a study by British retailer Debenhams, which says men, between the ages of 23 and 33, allow their partners to buy their underwear when they’re in the stable phase of their relationship. Men ages 19 to 23 tend…

If Underwear Could Fly

What would your panties (eww, hate that word) do if they had the day off from the constraints of being the most over-worked and under-appreciated undergarments? Perhaps they would take flight as they do in this Japanese cartoon, “Sora no Otoshimono.” Does anyone know what that means in Japanese? All of these pairs of…

What His Underwear Says About Him

After we read the would-be-totally-offensive-if-it-weren’t-hilarious Holy Taco post titled “What Her Underwear Says About Her,” we felt so very informed that we were inspired to create our very own man version. Because, much like learning a dude’s astrological sign, his underoos speak volumes about what kind of guy he really is, and, more importantly, what…
