Ergowear Gym Compression

Comfortable compression is vital when working out or playing sports. Some companies forget about that men and women have completely different contours and they continue to design compression wear based on the female facade. This mentality usually leads to seams being placed in the center of the crotch…not good, not comfortable. In fact, it can create a camel toe and garner unwanted attention. Ergowear’s Gym Compression Shorts are as good as it gets in my opinion and they maintain their integrity over many washes too. Check them out….worth the price too.

R-Speed Compression Shorts & Pants

December 1, 2012 Comments off

A misconception I learned growing up in the 80’s is that the older we get, the less active we are and fatter we become. WRONG! At 37, I am in better shape now than at any point since I was basketball walk-on my freshman year in college. Once I got cut from the squad as a sophomore, I put on 30lbs eating crap, smoking cigs, with a consistent workout routine of 12oz curls. Not only was body a train wreck, but the dumbest was that I waited until my late 20’s to do something about it.

So I started running and since then I’m always on the lookout for great compression shorts and pants. Here’s a new style that rocks ass without breaking the bank. The R-Gear High Speed Compression line from Road Runner is fantastic. I’ve had a pair of the 7″ mens shorts for a couple of months and they have not lost one bit of elastic integrity. The seams are firm and positioned perfectly to avoid chafing and the mesh side panels ensure that sweat wickers away. Road Runner makes shorts in various lengths and colors for men and women. They also have a little shimmer appearance that make your butt look good.

Bum Chums Swimwear

November 18, 2012 Comments off

I certainly don’t corner the market on all of the ideas and am constantly looking for something new. So I was checking around the other popular blogs and ran across The Underwear Expert, which is a fantastic blog and well written (obviously, we’ll funded too). I noticed a recent blog they had covered on a brand named Bum Chums, which I’d never heard of before.

I searched online and picked out a new swimsuit to take on the wife and I’s long overdue vacation to Mexico next month. I eventually just bought it directly from the Bum Chums website in the UK, which my British neighbor refers to as the “US Mothership”.

Anyway, they arrived quickly (4 days) and are extremely well constructed with smooth front seams and a roomy pouch. In true brief style, they are low-waisted with blended-color band and perfectly cup the buttocks for contouring fit and acceptable in any beach environment. See, an old dog can learn a new trick…thanks for teaching me something new Underwear Expert! I can’t wait to break these out on vacation.


Reversible Swimwear by Vuthy

August 19, 2012 Comments off


Ever said to yourself, “damn, I should have thought of that?”. That would completely apply to this post about Vuthy’s Reversible Men’s Swimwear. For years I’ve heard my wife talk about the ability to flip her bikini’s inside out and it never occurred to me. Well, it obviously resonated with someone.

As for the pair I have, keep this in mind. First, Groom! These are small and a having a squirrels nest for a crotch will look horrible. Second, Well-endowed guys should go with the briefs because you will fall out of the bikini. They also make these in Maise-Blue, but I can’t imagine that being a big seller to Buckeye fans:)


Cruise Mid-Cut from Pistol Pete

July 7, 2012 Comments off


Since the invention of the square cut (or mid-cut)I can’t say that I’ve seen a more innovative designs than from Pistol Pete. The Cruise mid-cut men’s swimsuit is a perfect example of this. Because they rely on a fabric with a high Nylon count (92%), these will make even the most invisible butts look like you could bounce a quarter off of them. As with the 3 other Pistol Pete swimwear outfits I have, they can stretch!

Even though about 0.01% of us look as good as the models (I don’t qualify either), I would definitely recommend being in prime physical shape before pulling this outfit off in public. If you have big thighs, these all might crawl up your leg and that’s not a pretty picture. So get the brief version instead. If you feel that the belt is a little too much, it can be easily removed. They do run small, so size up if you’re on the borderline.

I got this mid-cut on sale at

Pride Frame Bikini from Joe Snyder

Pride Bikini by Joe Snyder20120704-072018.jpg

I believe the most important benefit of being an aficionado of mens swimwear and underwear is that I can tell the difference between designers and manufacturers. Manufacturers just go through the motions with occasional upgrades. Designers are constantly reinventing themselves while raising the industry bar, which is what Joe Snyder embodies with their new Pride Frame collection. They offer other lengths, but their bikini brief is off the charts in style and comfort. Naturally, I chose the pink.

The piped elastic frame completely contours my privates and has a slight lifting feature without choking them.  The 80-20 ratio of Nylon/Lycra® hugs my body perfectly and leaves plenty of sizing flexibilty, so sizing isn’t an issue either.  Even the back bikini cut makes it appear as though I may have an ass…to quote my wife. She thought these were hot too and put her in the mood, so introduce these to the significant other soon.  You can thank me later…..and Happy 4th!

Shock Jock Bikini from Andrew Christian

July 1, 2012 Comments off


Remember the end of “Boogie Nights” when Dirk Digger whips out his cock and puts it back in his pants like he’s tucking in his shirt? Every man, woman, gay/straight, all had the same reaction….”Holy $h1t’, was that his….? Think on that wavelength when you slide into a pair of these apply named men’s swim brief, the Shock Jock Bikini from Andrew Christian. With the padded cup in the front, you will look like a porn star….at least from the mid-section area.

As for anything I’ve ever had from Andrew Christian, the quality is at the pinnacle of the industry. The Sport Tec fabric completely molds to your body like a glove and feels unbelievable when your swimming. The padded cup is removable, but why would you….if you got it flaunt it, right? It’s not uncomfortable and doesn’t cramp your junk and after having these on for a bit, you won’t even notice it.

I’ll break these out at the low-key beach spots or when the wife and I go on cruises with a primarily older crowd. So use common sense on where you want flaunt these. Even though they offer plenty of coverage, it’s the side view that could bring attention you may not want. An overlooked feature is that do have maximum UV protection and will not fade.

If you want to be bold, these definitely don’t disappoint.
