  • Men's Thong/Briefs from Orifashion

    Base_media-1
     

    I was utilizing Google and checking out various styles and brands of men's underwear when I came upon some unusually striking silk thong numbers from a company named Orifashion.If you go to the Orifashion site, you're probably going to wonder, "What the heck am I doing here, this place is all about wedding dresses!" And unless you're looking for a pretty, white custom-made number from China, you're most likely going to exit the site pretty quickly. 

    Don't do it!  

    Scroll down and you'll see a collection of five thong/briefs for men.  They come five to the set and you'll notice along with possessing a magical shimmer they are more thong than brief, which, to be brief, is bound to offer maximum exposure via the silhouette and decent support. 

    I really like the look of these in terms of their cut, color and texture. The cut conforms to the male form and is enhanced by an elastic waistband and trim. The shimmer and way in which the material falls and sits is luxurious. The colors of these low cut thongs include traditional white and black plus burgandy, blue and metallic grey. The cost for five is very reasonable: $32.99. 

    There are also briefs that are less revealing available for $29.99, thong/briefs that are more revealing with three for $35.99, a loose-fitting boxer brief with three priced at $43.99 and a set of six thong panties that go for $29.99.

    I prefer the set of five thong briefs. I think the cut really works well in defining a muscular male frame and the silk in these looks very rich. They're stylish, sexy and masculine. 

    Check them out. Although this seems to be it for their offerings to male customers what Orifashion has looks really quite nice. And although you could say there's a lack of variety, for the number of items they offer, there's actually a really decent range of styles and choices. Orifashion: who knew it existed and that this maker of custom wedding dresses would also find a niche in men's underwear. This is exactly why I love the Internet: you can discover some great buys and styles by surfing for a few seconds. 

  • "His" Story and the Male Corset

    Image02237
    Alec Baldwin before he needed a corset and now 

    A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about a new fashion trend that has developed in England: the male corset. I wasn't talking about cross dressing. Although that may be a growing trend or simply a relatively common occurrence. I was reporting about male sliming items akin to those available to women. They are becoming quite popular. I'm a stickler for facts and a lover of history and in this blog I do mean "His" Story. So, I wanted to set a few things straight regarding recent reports (as new as a few hours ago regarding this trend). 

    The folks reporting on the male corset are all saying that this is something new. That men have never before worn corsets. Ummmm, not true. Not true at all. I did about 60 seconds of research (I know, it's a lot of work, but it is a labor of love since I do adore history) and I discovered that men have been wearing corsets, off and on and mainly in England (ironically, since the latest trend emanates from that jolly old chunky monkey island).

          Just fine and dandy in a corset 

    The fact is that "dandies" (aka: men too concerned with appearance who often display effeminate characteristics) used to wear corsets in the Island Country in the early 19th centuries. The trend also continued into the mid and late 19th century but this time it included men who were considered to be more masculine than the dandy.

        Prisoners of the ultimate body image 

    So, although the latest male slimming agents may signal a new trend it is NOT an original one. The new corsets are said to make guys a good 1.5 inches slimmer. However, they don't eliminate fat, lower blood pressure or out less stress on the heart. No, only losing weight would do that. 

    For me this latest focus on deceptive fat reduction says perhaps what a lot of men really need to do is lose some weight. If there is a market for these items, it should be of concern for everyone. Especially for the men who are buying them.

    It is New Year's Eve tomorrow. Anyone will to make a resolution to join the gym of their choice, putting the cash towards actual weight and fat reduction and better health rather than the illusion of such? In a future blog, I'll be discussing Alec Baldwin and the skinny and fat in the very funny movie It's Complicated.

  • Johnny Underscore Reviews the Andrew Christian Almost Naked Boxer

    There's no question that some guys can be kind of set in their ways when it comes to underwear. Some guys pick an underwear style (like boxers or briefs) and vary from it only occasionally. For someone who wears briefs way more often than not, a pair of boxers had better be worth it. Andrew Christian Almost Naked Boxers are enough to convert a guy back to boxers!

    Andrew Christian mens underwear
    Andrew Christian Almost Naked Boxers are masculine, luxurious and very sexy. Boxers are supposed to offer full coverage and let a guy hang loose a bit. Andrew Christian Almost Naked Boxers do just that but they offer enough support to make someone normally accustomed to briefs feel comfortable.

    Made from 94 percent bamboo and 6 percent spandex, these aren't your grandfather's boxers. The extremely soft material stretches exactly when and where it needs to. They're cut more like trunks than boxers actually, so the term "boxer" is somewhat relative.

    A simple logo waistband with few other design elements give the boxers a clean, conservative look -- almost out of character for Andrew Christian's typically bold style.

    These boxers are called "almost naked" but they're more like "better than naked" because the anatomically correct pouch in the front is designed to enhance but support a guy's package. The pouch is large enough to accommodate just about any man's goods. The package-enhancing strategy employed for these boxers is quite simple: no straps or other gizmos -- just clever use of material. Andrew Christian also incorporated his Anti-Muffin Top elastic in these boxers.

    Even after a day of wear, it was still a real thrill to wear these boxers. These are great for daytime and dates but probably not ideal for sports. Bamboo's long-term durability as an underwear fabric is good but probably not as good as cotton or other materials. At $29, these are boxers you'd want to keep in good shape as long as possible.

    Andrew Christian's thoughtful combination of cut and cloth make his Almost Naked boxers a perfect 10.Andrew Christian Almost Naked boxers

    Available in extra small, small, medium, large and extra large, Andrew Christian Almost Naked Boxers are pretty much true to size -- no need to go a size up or down from your usual. The soft bamboo and spandex combine to offer a pretty forgiving fit.

    The size/care and feeding tag on these boxers is easily removed so it stands to reason that this may be intentional. It's sewn into the back of the waistband and like many tags, is a bit stiff and itchy if left in place.

    Overall, I give Andrew Christian Almost Naked Boxers a total score of 10 based on the following criteria:
    FIT --  10 (out of 10)
    STYLE --  10 (out of 10)Underwear Review Rating 10.0
    QUALITY -- 10(out of 10)
    VALUE -- 10 (out of 10)
