Aussiebum Sponsors a Rugby Team!

AprilAussieBum1L

Aussiebum is sponsoring the Manly Sea Eagles rugby team. DNA Australia has the scoop – and the boys of the team seem to be pretty happy about it, judging from the picture. The Aussiebum logo will be plastered all over the back of the players’ shorts. Should make for great branding. Love it!

2wink Australia Rediscovers My Youth

2wink Australia 80s 3-featured

Ok, so that may be a bit misleading but being born in the 70′s and having my formative years in the 80′s I can really appreciate what they’re doing with their new 70′s and 80′s ranges of underwear.

From their press release:

The 70s inspiration comes from guys who weren’t afraid of body and facial hair that was prevalent in movies and advertising at the time. The muted orange and racing green colors common in that decade also inspired the look of the 70s range. 80s inspiration was derived from bold pinks and blues matted against black that help the colors pop, which was common in advertising and clothing during the second-to-last decade of the last century.

“The later decades of the Twentieth Century saw some rather tumultuous, though amazing and incredibly fun times,” says 2wink Australia co-owner Carl McNeill. “We’re celebrating the feverish 70s and the sexy 80s with some hot new underwear ranges in colors that we think many guys can relate to.”

One thing I love, love, love is that they cast the models to be a reflection of the times. Their 70′s model has body hair in all the right places and isn’t afraid to flaunt it; while their 80′s model is more smooth, refined and reminiscent of the over-produced 80′s. And both are hot in their own right (and show off the underwear quite well!)

Both are priced in the low to mid $20′s and can be found at their web site: www.2wink.com.au

Thoughts?

Forget the Quarterbacks. It’s Rob Gronkowski in His Underwear!

Someone pointed me to this post on GayDailyHot.com and, boy am I glad they did. While everyone is debating who’s hotter – Brady or Manning – they’re completely MISSING this hottie on The Patriots.  Check him out below – and enjoy.

2wink Australia Gets Back to Their Roots With Hot Underwear

2WINK_AUSTRALIA_LOW_RIDER_BRIEFS

I’ve recently been back in contact with 2wink Australia and wow – they’ve been up to some amazing things.  The first I have to share is their “Walkabout” range of underwear. It’s so cool that they’re getting back to their heritage and commissioned an Aboriginal artist to create this new range of underwear. I was in Australia in 2005 and have a wonderful piece of Aboriginal art myself entitled “Welcome Friends.”  Check out the pictures below:

From the press release; The underwear range, which celebrates the Aboriginal Australian culture features footprints walking across the waistband. It was designed by Aboriginal artist Peter Mulchay of Queensland, and symbolizes the Aboriginal culture’s rite of passage for adolescent young men.

“We’re proud of our Australian history,” says 2wink Australia co-owner Carl McNeill. “And we wanted to create a range of underwear celebrating the diversity of such history while also incorporating cultural elements that are around today. We also brought on popular fitness model Lee Stram who has helped to create an incredible buzz about the Walkabout range.”

You can get them in low-rise briefs and trunks at 2wink.com.au both in black for a hot, sexy, masculine look. They’ll run ~$22 depending on conversion and they offer FREE worldwide shipping. Can’t beat it.

Also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter (and while you’re at it connect with UndiesGeek on Facebook and Twitter too)!

Review: Naked Boxer Brief (and Brief) Really Feel Like Nothing At All

5825919101_9414d2e33a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just before Christmas I got an email from Joel Primus (pictured below, modeling his underwear) from Naked™  asking if I’d like to try their Naked Boxer Brief. I was intrigued and after a little Googling was REALLY intrigued. After reading some background on their story, I checked out the product.

From the product description:

You will love your Naked Boxer Brief ®. This premium, seamless garment is impeccably tailored in Canada with soft-to-the-touch Italian Microfiber, spun on a 40 gauge machine with distilled water from the Italian Alps. As this smooth and light-weight garment lies gently against your skin, the sensation is like you’re wearing nothing at all. Reviewed as being in the top 1% in the world in terms of quality, you will feel comfortable, sexy and look forward to wearing your Naked Underwear®.

Did you catch that? “The sensation is like you’re wearing nothing at all.”

Whoa.

My Background
I enjoy wearing a jock or thong under jeans or khakis when I go out. It’s the closest I really get to being naked under my clothes. But I love the feeling of the denim or cotton on my skin. So this product had me interested.

After discussion about sizing (I have a 33″ waist so I’m a medium sometimes and a large in other brands) Joel recommended “medium” and sent my 1 pair of black boxer briefs and 1 pair of black briefs that arrived about a week later.

After a cold wash (as instructed) I first wore the boxer briefs under a full suit to a “best dressed” benefit for a non profit. I was impressed.


Joel Primus – Naked Boxer Brief Founder (and hot model) wearing the Naked Brief

The Waistband
My first thought was “where’s the waistband?” There is, of course, SOMETHING there to hold them up but I’m not entirely sure how it works, to be honest. It’s thin – and almost as if there is no waistband at all. It doesn’t have a tremendous amount of stretch to it, but it doesn’t need to. The resulting effect is a feeling of, well, nothing on your waist. No waistband pinching. No elastic twisting. Just fabric. It was quite amazing.

The Fabric
The second thing I noticed was how soft and almost non-existent the fabric felt. In the front, I had plenty of support and knew I was wearing underwear. But on my butt, it felt like I wasn’t wearing anything. It was almost the EXACT sensation of wearing a jock or thong under a suit (which honestly, I never do).

The  Fit
In addition to feeling supported, there was ample room in the front. One of my big pet peeves is underwear with no package room. The Naked Boxer Brief did NOT have that problem. They were also comfortable snug around the leg and fit perfectly around the back. Honestly, the most comfortable boxer brief I’ve ever worn.

The Function
The other remarkable thing was that after 6 hours of moving around at an event – including a 30 minute drive each way – they hadn’t budged. They didn’t ride  up. They didn’t bunch up. The waist didn’t sag or droop. Nothing. They stayed EXACTLY where I put them. It was remarkable. The material was not only comfortable but also VERY breathable. I stayed cool, comfortable and dry wearing the boxer brief.

Style
If I had one complaint, and I have to dig for this, it would be that the styling is very simple.  While this makes them quite elegant – and they look GOOD on you (as evidenced by the model pictures accompanying this post), I like a bit of variety in my color and style. It’s possible they’ll come out with more (white is now an option) and honestly, this is just nitpicking.

Repeating the Results
I wore the boxer brief 2 more times – once under jeans and once under a suit – and had the exact same experience.  Wearing the brief was also good, but honestly, I wasn’t AS impressed. For some reason I seemed to sweat more when wearing the brief. The boxer brief breathed fine and I was good but the 2 times I wore the brief it didn’t seem to breathe as well.

In short, this is some of the most amazing underwear this underwear geek has ever worn. I’m actually heading to their web site now to buy 4 more pair and make the boxer briefs my standard under suits at work. They’re just that amazing.

My verdict (all out of 10):

  • Fit: 10
  • Material: 10
  • Comfort: 9
  • Style: 8
  • Wearability: 10

Where to Buy
You can get your very own Naked Boxer Briefs (or Briefs) direct from their company store.
