Underwear Makes New History as Fashion Must-Haves for Men

There once was an underwear standard for men that no one would really talk about. Now, male undergarments have evolved into fashionable outerwear that make statements all their own.

Boxers and briefs were fashioned for utilitarian use to be hidden from sight. Add to that the standard white tee, placed under the dress shirt, and the socks to match the trousers or shoes. These are the undergarment basics that were designed for men’s fashion comfort
but were never supposed to see the limelight. Eventually, the underwear of yesterday grew into trendy outerwear fashion of today.

I’m a pretty fashionable guy, but when it came to selecting undergarments, I didn’t put much thought into the articles of clothing that were not at the forefront of my daily outfit.

Sure, when it came time to ~strip down~ for someone else, I made sure not to sport anything with rips, holes or cartoon characters, but rarely did I take into consideration what they thought of me based on my selection.

(Wait, what? I don’t have underwear with cartoon characters, that’d be crazy and totally not hot at all…)

Shouldn’t they care less about the wrapping and more about the package itself?

In the 1920s, boxer shorts were introduced by the founder of Everlast, Jacob Golomb. He designed the underwear fashioned on the new shorts, with elastic waistbands he was making for boxers fighting in the ring. The new men’s fashion of wearing the boxer didnotbecome popular until younger males discovered the underwear at the end of WWII. In 1934, while attempting to sell the boxer short, a hosiery decision-maker was inspired by a French bathing suit to design a brief-styled undergarment.

Arthur Kneibler, executive and designer at Coopers, Inc., a Wisconsin hosiery company, gained inspiration from a postcard to create a new, and more comfortable, men’s fashion underwear design. After seeing the man pictured in a leg-bearing bathing suit, Kneibler
envisioned a new legless underwear design. Created to be supportive and fitting, like a jockstrap, the undergarment by Coopers was named Jockey shorts and were sold in 1935, by Marshall Field’s, in Chicago.

Unlike the slow-moving boxer shorts, sales for the Jockey shorts took off, and 600 pairs were sold on the first day. Within three months, Coopers had sold 30,000 pairs. After years of success, gaining even more appeal for the modern briefs, in 1971, the company changed its name to Jockey. Men were not only discovering the groove of outer fashion in the 1970s, but also the allure of the fashion-forward undergarment.

Calvin Klein took notice introducing designer underwear that would certainly catch the attention of men’s fashion aficionados. In 1982, the designer took the white brief from behind the clothes to show it as a true men’s fashion statement. The photo of a model wearing the skimpy white underwear on a huge billboard stopped traffic in the center of New York City, in Times Square.

The controversial sexual photo was a hit, making underwear a must-want designer quality men’s fashion that would continue to grow with new designs. Fast forward to the 21st century, and it is fashionable among the younger crowd to showcase designer underwear
waste bands above their pants, with t-shirts tucked in.

The last two gentlemen lucky enough to get in or around my skinny jeans called out my boring undie choices, and recommended I purchase something that “popped.”

That’s when I realized, underwear has way more of a purpose than just everyday functionality.

When I’m getting dressed, my underwear preferences need to tell a story unique to my own personality. After all, boxer briefs may come in packs of three, but each person who chooses to wear ’em is different.

If you encounter someone wearing this baggy excuse for fabric, odds are he’s still not old enough to drink or at least has that mentality.

Boxers were all the rage years back, but now, they’re a poor excuse for underwear that get bunched up in just about any pair of pants you decidedly wear.

For some, they’re a go-to. But for me, they say the guy still needs to get his shit together.

You need more stability in your life. And your crotch.

Work Clothes – The Inside Analysis

These days dressing up for work takes a lot of effort if you’re a fashion conscious person. And it doesn’t help either if you’re terrible at selecting the right outfit. Because dressing attires have to be appropriate the corporate world has for years been advocating for the casual business look. So to help you make a choice this article is going to investigate the fashion world and find out which work clothes suit the work environment.

Being appropriate takes an equal level of skill as that which a lion uses to stalk and bring down its pref. In the highly competitive world one has to dress conveniently for the environment in which they work. That is why suit underwear that accentuate the cleavage; show too much thigh; or reveal underwear aren’t appropriate for work. To go around this a woman should attempt at the below knee high skirts; or long dresses so that the manager doesn’t wrongly assume that his secretary is trying to seduce him. Clothes that blend with the work environment are necessary because some people can get distracted or get the wrong idea.

Presentability plays a huge part when it comes to portraying a good image of yourself to business clients. And since most people work in the professional environment there is a responsibility on their side to keep a refined look. This means dirty and wrinkled clothes don’t fit well at work and they’re better left in the rubbish bin along Scruff Street. Torn clothes, as well as those with offensive pictures or words, must be left at home as these can create an unpleasant mood with employees.

Even though you might have an itching to desperately wear a particular suit underwear you must consider how comfortable it will be for you whilst wearing it. Comfortable clothes make working very pleasant and liberating if we are dresses in flat shoes, loose skirts and simple colorful clothes that don’t catch dirt easily. There is no real point in wearing extremely high heel shoes or short skirts if you know you won’t be comfortable enough.

What types of clothes are appropriate for work then? The answer is quiet simple. The casual work shirts; knee high skirts; unrevealing blouses; turtlenecks; approved sweaters; simple sneakers; clogs; flat shoes; boots and short high heels. Inappropriate work clothes would be bright colored sneakers; slippers; morning shoes; clothes with offensive pictures and words; tight and skimpy skirts and midriff tops.

In addition to this there will always be the one employee who just loves to wear hats and jewelry. Both are acceptable, but there are normal limits. Summer hats and flat base caps from Hip-Hop videos are not suitable for a professional work environment. But generally it would be advisable to leave them at home unless you’re Muslim. Jewelry should also be simple and not complicated as if the Oscars are being held in the Boardroom.

Take Time to Sniff the Underwear and Other Time Savers

As a mother of six active children, I’m always on the lookout for time savings tips, and I’m not above trying a housework cheat or two. There are so many things I’d rather be doing than scrubbing the kitchen floor on my hands and knees like say… anything. And if I can save a few dollars in the process, well I’m euphoric.

Tip Number One – Wash Clothes and Dishes without Soap

A few years back a neighbor was selling these plastic balls that she told me where full of special ionized water. When added to a dishwasher or washing machine, clothing and dishes came out sparkling clean without the use of detergent.

I was skeptical, but agreed to give them a try. On a Saturday morning I set up my own scientific test. I washed three loads of clothing, one with regular detergent, one with the ion balls and one without adding anything at all. Per her instructions I pretreated all stains before washing them, and amazingly enough all three loads came out pretty much the same. The dishwasher experiment was equally as surprising.

Needless to say I returned the ion balls, but it gave me serious pause to think that plain hot tap water just might be the best cleaning agent of all.

Tip Number Two – If You Can’t See it, It’s Not Dirty

This is a trick I learned from my twelve-year-old son who is a master at hiding the entire contents of a dirty room in such a way as to make them disappear. He’s discovered nooks and crannies in his room that I hadn’t imagined even existed. One time he managed to cram all of his dirty clothes behind the sheetrock through a hole in his wall. We weren’t any wiser until strange smells began to fill his room without any noticeable cause.

Now I don’t recommend hiding dirty clothes for extended periods of time, but I have been known to grab a laundry basket and sweep everything on the surface of a cluttered table inside, before stowing it out of sight. This works well when my mother-in-law calls to say she’s in the neighborhood and wants to drop by.

Tip Number Three – The Occupied Bathroom Ruse

We have three bathrooms, one of which is the exclusive domain of the boys and upon passing through the door you’d have no doubt about the truthfulness of this statement. It badly needs a new paint job and flooring, especially in the vicinity of the toilet, but we’ve decided to wait until the last guy’s a little older before investing the money to redo it. In the mean time though the guys aren’t bothered, I’m hesitant to have someone walk in there accidentally.

My trick is to simply lock the door before guests arrive, then direct those that ask to one of the two other facilities. Should someone decide to investigate on their own and find their way to the bathroom of terror, the door will be locked and they’ll be left to assume that the restroom is already in use by someone with a serious and possibly smelly bowel condition. For the rest of the visit they’ll be secretively searching the faces of everyone else in the house, looking for the poor victim.

Tip Number Four – Smell the Laundry Before Washing

A few years ago I went on this kick of riding the kids to clean their rooms. I would scrutinize the furniture and floor each night before bed, and if the room wasn’t up to my exacting standards I’d make the negligent inmate arise from the comfort of his or her cot and finish the job. It only took a few of these nightly inspections before the kids got the idea and made sure their rooms would pass muster before retiring.

A few days later I noticed a sudden and unexplainable influx of laundry coming through. At first I thought that it was a backlog from all the weeks of sloppy bedroom upkeep. But after a week when the volume didn’t diminish I began to get suspicious, and it was then I noticed how many folded shirts and pants were showing up in their dirty clothing piles. I washed several swimming suits, even though it was the middle of January and there was at least three feet of snow outside, and socks that hadn’t fit my youngest for at least two years where coming through the dryer with frightening regularity.

The following morning I got up early and hung about the hall watching my children get ready for school. Sure enough as each opened a drawer they would throw five or six outfits onto the floor before located something they liked. Blouses and skirts were knocked off of hangers, and one little boy emptied half the underwear drawer until he found a pair with Spiderman swinging across the back. No doubt by tonight, all these clean cloths would be scooped up and unceremoniously deposited on the laundry room floor.

Now, I employ the famous sniff test on all questionable suit underwear, which has saved me hours of time, and probably gallons of detergent free water. It’s simple really. If a piece of clothing looks questionable, I take a quick whiff. If it smells like lavender, orange blossom or spring morning fabric softener, it goes back to the room and if it smells like… well anything else, into the wash it goes.

Men’s Designer Underwear Versus High Street Chain Underwear

For many years most men have considered their suit underwear little more than a functional item that should require little thought and expense. This attitude has been changing over the past 20 years as the designer brands have raised the profile of men’s underwear with sexy advertising. Successful advertising campaigns include the Mark Wahlberg campaign for Calvin Klein and David Beckham for Emporio Armani. Whilst this has raised interest in fashionable underwear, most men still wear high street chains such as Marks and Spencer. Although it’s a much cheaper option, the designer brands offer a more unique and fashionable product. Is it worth paying more for an item of clothing that is rarely seen?

Firstly, men’s designer underwear simply looks better. They are designed with a more flattering cut that follows the contours of your body, and very often with a more body hugging fit. The feeling of wearing a very well fitting pair of underwear can give you a general sense of well being and extra confidence. In addition, designer underwear has a wide branded waistband which gives a more masculine look. If ever your underwear band shows over your jeans (which for some people is actually desirable), at least you will do so in style.

Designer underwear offers much more choice in fashionable styles and patterns. For most men the different styles end with boxer shorts, briefs and boxer briefs but the designer brands offer subtleties within this. For example Calvin Klein offers a basic trunk, a low rise trunk, a body stretch trunk and a pro stretch trunk. All these styles have a different look, offering you the choice of selecting the one that best suits you. Some of these different styles are designed to be worn for more active lifestyles (including sport) or colder and warmer climates. You also get a lot more choice in colours and patterns, making it in general a more fashion item that you can have some fun with (rather than always going for white, grey or black).

It’s all good and well that designer underwear looks great, but what’s the point if no-one ever sees it. That’s not strictly true though, as your partner or spouse will often see you in your underwear. Whilst it’s debatable how important it is if you have been married for many years, it is very important when embarking a new relationship. Perhaps this would suggest that designer underwear is more suited to the younger generation.

Looking good is not the only criteria when judging men’s underwear, as comfort is also of great importance. Firstly, designer underwear has a superior shape and fit which is more comfortable, giving you greater feeling of confidence. They are also designed specifically not to lose their shape throughout the day (usually containing added lycra) which avoids any embarrassing baggy pants issues as well as offering a greater degree of comfort. The designer brands also use a superior type of cotton that feels much softer against the skin.

Clearly the biggest disadvantage of buying designer suit underwear is that it can cost three times the amount you would pay at a high street chain. On the other hand, designer underwear offers a greater cut, more comfort and choice. Whilst for some men this is not very important, for others (particularly the younger generation) it is. I think that the best solution is to have a mix of high street and designer underwear, saving your favourite pairs for special occasions, or just to ring the changes.

Overview on Mens Underwear

Underwear is a very important part of anyone’s apparel. There are very few types of underwear for men. A few tips can help you in choosing the best suit underwear at lower prices.

Men’s underwear is available in different materials. Some of the materials are cotton, silk, spandex, Lycra and nylon. Select the material that is comfortable to your body type. Some people face certain problems with some materials like cotton can lead to allergy or nylon can cause irritation. Try all the materials so that you can find out which material suits your body type. Wear cotton underwear if you live in a warm climate. Try wearing wool or Lycra material if you are living in colder conditions. Always wear underwear that is close fitting. It should not be too loose or too tight at the waistband. Underwear is the most important item in attire even if it is hidden. Avoid buying cheaper or unbranded underwear. Always buy a brand that you can trust and gives a perfect fit for your body type. In the past people used to wear V-Style, Boxers, Thongs and g-strings type of underwear. But now you can find underwear that is used for specific purpose.

The greatest change is in its fabrics. You can find different styles in different materials like cotton, polyester or silk blends.

Briefs: Traditional Briefs are Y-shaped front fly, about four inches of fabric that covers everything from the waist to the upper thighs and butt is fully covered. Mid rise briefs rest about two inches below the waist and low rise briefs rest three inches below the waist. These styles are best suited for low rise jeans. Briefs are best for jobs that require sitting down the whole day or physical activities.

Boxers: Boxers are the loosest and most comfortable of all styles. Shorts have straight cut leg openings and they cover thighs and butt. Length may vary from eight to sixteen inches. Tapered boxes have leg openings that can fit your thigh, with side vents providing more free movements. Boxers are the only underwear that can be tailored.

Boxer briefs: Boxer briefs are the middle ground between boxer and brief. This type of underwear is mostly worn under tighter pants and during athletic activities. Boxer briefs are available in spandex or cotton material.

Bikinis: This type of underwear goes well below belly button. Bikini works best with low-rise jeans and tighter trousers. This may cost a bit more than briefs and boxers because it is usually made up of spandex or nylon material.

How to choose the right underwear to wear for women?

Underwear is something we often take for granted; it is just a part of life. But how long has it been a part of life and how have men’s underwear evolved over the ages?

When using the word suit underwear, we assume its meaning to be any garment worn against the body and sometimes under other articles of clothing. The oldest traces of such underwear start with the Egyptians. Although the loincloth is the simplest and probably the first undergarment worn by human beings, hieroglyphics of Egyptians dating back to the 2nd millennium B.C. show how fabric was used to form an undergarment over which they wore a skirt. Pharaohs were often buried when these garments, giving further proof of their existence.

In Greece, the ‘chiton’, an oblong piece of woolen cloth large enough to wrap around the body, was wore and then often fastened beneath by men who were physically active. Over the chiton a ‘himation’, or outer cloak was sometimes worn. Greek slaves simply wore loincloths. The closest article of clothing worn by men in ancient Rome was called a subligaculum, which in modern terms means a pair of shorts or a loincloth and this was worn under a toga or tunic.

It wasn’t until the 13th century that pull-on underpants were invented and underwear became an important garment. These underwear looked like baggy drawers and were called ‘braies’. Knights wore ‘braies’ under several layers of clothing topped by their armor. A braies was stepped into and then laced or tied around the waist and legs at about mid-calf.

By the Renaissance, the braies became shorter to accommodate longer styles of chausses. Chausses were form fitting like modern hose and were not typically covered up. Men’s hose were typically very snug on the legs and open at the crotch, with the genitalia simply hanging loose under the doublet. A shortening of the doublet resulted in often-exposed genitalia, so the codpiece came into being. As time passed, codpieces were shaped to emphasize the male genitalia and eventually often became padded and bizarrely shaped. Henry VIII of England began padding his own codpiece, which caused a spiraling trend of larger and larger codpieces that only ended by the end of the 16th Century. They also often doubled as pockets or handy carrying places for a variety of items.

In Victorian times men’s underwear were divided into two pieces and made of cotton, linen and silk. In America, pre Civil War, “drawers” were worn from the waist down and were typically made of wool flannel. A new design that was knee length with a simple button overlap in front and a drawstring at the waist in the back also became popular. This was also worn with an upper garment made of wool flannel, which was worn next to the skin for added warmth.

By the time of the Industrial Revolution and the invention of water-powered spinning machines and the cotton gin, underwear was being mass-produced. For the first time, people began buying their underwear in stores rather than making them at home. The standard undergarment of this period for men, women, and children was the union suit, which provided coverage from the wrists to the ankles. The union suits of the era were usually made of knitted material and included a drop flap in the back to ease visits to the toilet. Because the top and bottom were united as an one-piece garment it received the name union suit. Hanes opened several mills producing ‘union suits’.

“This Is Underwear Time” – The Most Brilliant Catalog Cover You Will See Today

While we don’t often deal in absolutes, there are some things we are 100% certain about. The cover of a 1920s trade catalog with the title “This is Underwear Time” — complete with the illustration of a man getting dressed while his dog looks on — is one of those times where we can unequivocally proclaim to have found a truly (possibly unintentionally) brilliant piece of marketing.

The Hagley Museum & Library in Delaware — a Smithsonian affiliate — recently featured the below gem on its Hagley Vault Tumblr:“Now is the time and now is the place,” the cover reads, below a drawing of a man who appears to be in his long underwear, posing gravely in his dressing room, inexplicably accompanied by his dog.

However hilarious it may seem to us 21st century folk, suit underwear Time appears to be a literal time of the year when there was a push to sell underthings.

For clothiers Scott & Hunsicker, this undies season fell between October 27th to November 8th that year, which, for all we know, may have been the traditional Underwear Time for all haberdasheries. The catalog does urge customers to put in their orders for Christmas early, “while the assortments are at their best.”We got a peek inside the catalog with help from the fine folks at The Hagley, but alas, it didn’t include any more wonderful illustrations along with its selection of men’s underwear, men’s gloves, men’s hose, and ladies’ gloves. Clothing for canine companions who aid their owners in getting dressed was not among the offerings.

“The aim of this store is to sell everything wanted in the higher grades of haberdashery, and everything the best of its kind,” the catalog reads.

For example, the one-piece long underwear known as a “union suit” that the man on the cover is sporting? Everyone who was anyone wanted one back then.

“Union suits are giving satisfaction to the most discriminating wearers,” the clothiers note.

Worried about cleanliness during Underwear Time? Don’t be! Scott & Hunsicker have got you covered.

“Much hand labor is used in the making of our underwear; our wool is scoured and shrunk, and every garment laundered,” the catalog boasts. “Such cleanliness is appreciated by particular people, who come back to us year after year.”Anyone interested in purchasing new underwear in celebration of Underwear Time could order by mail — a service that “especially commended to the notice of patrons out of town,” and lovers of efficiency.As the catalog helpfully explains, “Shopping by mail, under modern conditions of efficiency, is an exact science, which relieves the shopper of every troublesome detail and practically places the store’s convenience at your door.”

And much like today’s retailers must be multi-platform, the undergarment experts at Scott & Hunsicker were ready to accept orders in every way possible at the time, noting that “a written or telephoned order will command prompt attention.”

Obviously, you are free to disagree that This is Underwear Time isn’t the best catalog cover of all time forever and ever, but we think Underwear Specialists Scott & Hunsicker of Philadelphia were a rare pair of geniuses, and we hope they sold enough underwear to retire in style and live happily ever after, wearing their union suits on a pile of money.

We might not know much about what happened to the company, but we do know what ended up in the space where the business was located during this particular Underwear Time: the Philadelphia branch of Consumerist took a walk to check out the address on the cover, and found that a store named Verde now occupies the street-level storefront.

We wrote to that shoppe’s proprietor to inquire as to their awareness — or possible lack thereof — regarding the establishment’s former occupants. Someone from the store wrote us back saying that she didn’t have any history on the building — but that it was very interesting to see the catalog in any case.

Consumerist reader Jo wrote in after seeing this story and pointed to a clue she found about Scott & Hunsicker dating to a post in an online forum in December 2004 looking for a tailor in Philadelphia. One commenter replied, “men’s retail in Philadelphia has converged a quite a bit over the years. Jacob Reed closed over ten years ago — maybe more like fifteen — with many of the tailors going to Boyd’s. Scott and Hunsicker closed before that.”

For now, we can look at the photo of the building as it stands now and imagine the incorporeal beings of Messrs. Scott & Hunsicker — and the unnamed dog on their catalog cover — busily sewing only the finest undergarments for the Philadelphia gentry.

Why Suit Underwear Do We Wear Underwear?

Many people have asked the question, why do we wear underwear? And the simply answer to the question is “for hygiene “but I thought about this for a time and it seems to me that it may not really be the correct answer but just part of the answer! Really when you think about the cycle of life we begin our lives in diapers and we end our lives in diapers.

Now I do not want to compare underwear with diapers but let’s just give it a thought. As a parent we always keep our children in diapers for hygiene purposes. Babies wear their diapers under their clothes also know as under wear. As children grow we teach them potty skills and with that we change the level of under wear that children wear to products that help them learn the skill of using the washroom at the right time. We like to call it Potty Training.

As we grow up our level of required clothing protection changes and we become less depended on the under wear to protect our outer clothing but all these years of wearing under wear is a leaned habit and we are comfortable with underwear.

I find that as we grow our idea of underwear changes and as we take control of our own choices we see underwear as something that can be fun, sexy and comfortable all at the same time. I speak for men only but underwear can add much comfort in a day with its ball support, and pouch designs. Many of us look for styles that suit our outer wear whether its low rise for low rise jeans or boxers that sit high on a low rise pant.

Why do we wear underwear as a teen, well again it is something that we have worn all our lives and it is about hygiene but more than that it’s a fashion statement, we wear underwear high and pants low. We want people to see our underwear, our brand, our style, and mostly because it ticks off our parents.

Why do we wear underwear as an adult? Again it’s about a learned tradition of wearing underwear all our lives but now more than ever it is about fashion; we wear underwear for comfort and style. But for the most part who wants to get caught in a pair of tattered old underwear when we want to make the best impression? Yeah, you know when you dress to thrill it will include a great underwear because you never know where the night may lead.
