Today, thanks to their Google ad, I noticed a new company not yet posted in our Web Undies list -- BodyTouch. Targeted to the British crowd, this site carries Punto Blanco in all kinds of styles, including briefs, boxers, thongs, t-shirts, swimwear and more. Check it out!

10percent.com is running a 48-hour sale that includes their mens underwear in which they are offering free standard ground shipping on all orders over $50. This sale is sitewide -- not just their underwear. The sale expires August 28, 2005 and cannot be combined with other offers. This link points to their mens underwear section -- get what you want before it's too late.
As an incentive to encourage you to support the work of UndiesDrawer.com, we are now offering a CD of over 4000 images of men and their underwear to anyone who donates $20 or more to UndiesDrawer.com through our PayPal or Amazon.com payment systems (over in the left column).

While doing a little site maintenance, I googled the term "undiesdrawer" to see who is linking to this site. In doing so, I found this photo. I know, from emails and message boards, that there are guys who read this site who have hundreds -- yes, literally hundreds (plural) -- of pairs of underwear, stacked into drawers and stored in storage tubs when they run out of room. I'm just utterly amazed at how much underwear some undies fans have. This photo is the first time I've seen a photo reflecting this level of enthusiasm for underwear. I must admit that I haven't purchased this level of underwear, but if you have, keep on reading! I enjoy readers enthusiastic about my subject matter.
The 2(x)ist Micro Collection Brief, regularly priced at $18.50, is on sale for $4.50 apiece. This sale is available in XL only, but it's available in black, blue, white and grey. Another XL version sale is the 2(x)ist Brushed Microfibre No-Show Brief, regularly $18.50 is on sale for $5.50.
If you're size 28, today is your lucky day, because a 3-pack of the 2(x)ist Fly Front Brief, normally $25.00, is marked down to $4.50 per pack.
True story -- my friend bought all 4 colors of the 2(x)ist Micro Collection Brief at $4.50 per piece, and paid $6.25 in shipping for a total of $24.25. If you break that down, he paid $6.06 per piece for underwear that runs $18.50 per piece normally. Great lead, Billy! Thanks for the help!
Today, I added three new photo sets to the Undies Gallery. Once again, I noticed that my local TJMaxx was running sales on some great underwear, so I grabbed them. In my area, no one I know of sells 2(x)ist, so when I saw 2(x)ist boxes at TJMaxx, I almost jumped out of my skin. The new photo sets include the 2(x)ist Move No-Show Briefs in white, the 2(x)ist Move Trunk in white, and the Calvin Klein Cotton Stretch Trunk in grey. Check them out!
TopDrawers has added four DTJocks low-rise briefs to its lineup. The dt x-centric is a collection of psychedelic circles with a black waistband and black fly accents. The dt jockadelic resembles fluorescent camouflage briefs with a green background topped with multicolor blobs, a black waistband and black fly accents. The dt purple haze is a solid purple brief with white waistband and white accents. Finally, the dt knight rider, a black low-rise brief with neon green waistband and fly accents. All four are 100% cotton with microfiber waistbands, and they each run for $29 CAN, which translates to about $24 in US dollars.
DTJocks is one of the brands featured at TopDrawers that can be hard to find at other locales, but TopDrawers runs a gaggle of other brands that you'll have to search to find otherwise. Other brands featured are 2xist, Andrew Christian, Bike, Blend, Calvin Klein, California Muscle, C-IN2, Diesel, Fagioni, Ginch Gonch, Go Softwear, Gregg Homme, HOM, Impetus, Jim, Jocko, Letiga, Mansilk, N2N, PB Pour Lui, Punto Blanco and Mundo Unico.
While you're there, be sure to check out their Clearance Sale page. They consistently have great ideas at reduced price. Two things that stand out to me in this week's clearance items are more DTJocks briefs: the dt navy seal and the dt hot chocolate. There's plenty of other stuff there, too, from Unico, Calvin Klein, Puma, Mansilk, Gregg, Go Softwear, Versace and more.
(And, finally, I just have to get it off my chest -- I think that the DTJocks underwear model, Mr. Blond Mullet, is one of the worst-looking underwear models out there, and I have no idea why they use the man in every single underwear photo. OK -- I feel better now.)
First, the 2xist Contrast line features constrasting colors for a bold, graphic look. A good-looking line of undergear, these items are made of super-soft ringspun 100% combed cotton. The entire line highights body-conscious cuts that are seamless for no-show looks under clothing. Contrasting color options are white with black trim, and light blue with dark blue trim. The items in this line include the 2xist Contrast Contour Pouch Brief for $10, the 2xist Contrast Boxer Brief for $19, the 2xist Contrast No Show Brief for $10, and the 2xist Contrast Square Cut Tank Top for $16, and are available at FreshPair but will not be in stock until August 23, but they are accepting preorders on all items.
Next, the 2xist Flash line is uniquely designed for performance, support and style. All pieces are made from Tactel®, an innovative fabric known for its springy, lightweight construction. The fabric also has advanced wicking performance which keeps you cool and dry while combining fit and freedom of movement. Color options include black, white, red and green. Items in this line include the 2xist Flash Crew Neck T-Shirt for $26, the 2xist Flash Contour Pouch Brief for $19, the 2xist Flash Jock Strap for $19, the 2xist Flash Square Cut Trunk for $24, and the 2xist Flash No Show Brief for $19, and are available as well at FreshPair but will not be in stock until August 23, but they are accepting preorders on all items.
Lastly, Calvin Klein has quietly introduced a new line called the Calvin Klein 365 line. The only way I knew this was out there was through a post on the Men's Health message board forum. The line of underwear and t-shirts is made of a stretch cotton/elastane blend and stylistic distinctions you won't see in other Calvin Kleins, such as the mid-thigh length of the boxer briefs and the updated cut on the crew neck t-shirt. Available colors are white, black and grey heather. Items in this line include the Calvin Klein 365 Hip Brief for $15, the Calvin Klein 365 Short Sleeve Crew (in a two-pack for $25), the Calvin Klein 365 Tank (in a two-pack for $25), the Calvin Klein 365 Boxer Brief for $19.50, the Calvin Klein 365 Trunk for $19.50, and the Calvin Klein 365 Brief for $15 (which also comes in a two-pack for $19.50). This new line is immediately available from Bare Necessities, where they offer free shipping on orders over $60.
I've just added a new underwear company to the Web Undies listing -- Artificial Flavor. They have great-looking, very colorful underwear. Here is a press release announcing the startup, in which the president of the company says, "We started this company because the existing choices for men's underwear tend to be very limited and to be frank, are quite stale." Great quote.
- Boyshorts: retro-styled mid-length hipsters that have contrast trim at the leg openings
- Speedsters: mid-length hipsters with bold asymmetrical design front and back
- Magnums: two tone briefs with single stripe and contrast waistband
Give Artificial Flavor a try and let me know your thoughts.
