A Guide To Underwear

Don't undervalue the power of the undies. 'Cause while Hermès ties and killer suits may grab her attention at the club, when it comes to down to it, it's what's underneath that counts.

Briefs You may have grown out of them – either literally or figuratively – but the briefs seem to be doing a rerun. Since Italian dudes have always stayed true to the slip, it's no surprise that  Italian fashion houses are the forerunners to breathe new life into the undies staple. While Dolce & Gabbana keeps it clean and simple with a white low rise model sporting a logo on the elasticized waist, Emporio Armani gets creative with a blue plaid on a material that'll keep your shotgun on lockdown, with enough space to breath.

Boxers Stay away from the satin boxers unless you float like a butterfly and sting like a bee – they were never made to step foot outside an actual boxing ring. And no, cartoon figure prints aren’t cute on anybody over the age of four.  Get a basic pair of Calvin Klein's brand new Concept line, which sees the cotton boxer brief as a main protagonist.

Size Always Matters Here's the deal: if they reach past your mid-thigh they aren’t called boxers anymore but cycling shorts. This season's trend for boxers, is a length that reaches down till the upper-thigh – about 1.5 cm below the crotch.

Black or White According to underwear etiquette, wearing black underwear would be a no-go, simply for hygienic reasons: you can't see how dirty they really are. But rules are meant to be broken, plus we trust in your ability to get down with the laundry detergent, to keep your all black everything situation fresh and clean. If you do play according to the rules however, experiment with different waistbands colours to enhance your white.

The Wonderjock In case your anatomy isn't that impressive, it seems there is a temporary solution: the wonderjock. Look at it as a wonder bra for men, but instead of giving things a boost up there, it's boosting things down there. Hey, this is the no-judging zone so we're not criticizing, but do keep in mind that when the jock comes off, the magic won't last.
