Intymen dropped the ball on 2 out of 3

Intymen Fill-It Mesh Thong

Intymen Fill-It Mesh Thong

Intymen is one of the more innovative, yet moderate designers that tends to target the athlete with sporty underwear and swimwear for the active male (my demographic). I have built quite a collection over the years of Intymen styles and been very satisfied with their clothing line up to this point.   I received three pairs of their newest underwear lines (Junk Bikini, Fill-It Mesh Thong, Burnout Brief) and unfortunately was a little dissappointed with two of them.  I’ll start with the bad and end on a good note.

My first imression of the Intymen Junk Bikini underwear was that it would be their take on the “contoured pouch” style of underwear that is sweeping the industry.  The material is extremely soft but very thin with seams that hug the legs and connect with a small stiching underneath.

It’s also this area where the garment broke down and separated after three washes with hang-drying.  I would recommend that they reinforce that stitching on their next product update if they want to build that line of business design.

The Intymen Fill-It Mesh thong underwear must have been a wonderful idea conceptually.  The mesh nylon fabric is the same that they have sculpted into other great garments in the past but in this instance, the thong has a big flaw that is difficult to determine from a picture.  The front pouch has opened sides, so my junk falls out and I’m not John Holmes by any stretch.  I wear thongs typically under running tights and mesh fabrics are perfect for that purpose.  Everything about this underwear is well-constructed from the waistband, c-ring support, and contouring t-back…..except the open flaps on the pouch sides!  My recommendation is to definitely close the pouch stitching.

Intymen restored my confidence with the Burnout Brief which is very comfortable and stylish with a hint of shimmer on the front pouch.

The back coverage is somewhere in between a bikini and brief to accentuate the posterior.  Speaking of the pouch, it does flex to provide a decent amount of room but for the very-well endowed it might seem a bit snug (but so does everything).   The Burnout Brief is perfect for any occasion and I would definitely recommend this underwear. 

Vintage Linen Thong

I go back and forth in my underwear preference depending on my recent ice cream intake. I usually bounce between bikini’s and square cuts. Only when I’m working out do I wear thongs, but these Vintage Line Thongs are unbelievably comfortable and worth every penny! BodyAware does it again. It feels like I’m wearing nothing and I would highly recommend this to non-thongers. These will change your mind fast!

This classy linen-blend thong brief features features soft, non-binding waist elastic with the BodyAware logo at center, the special anatomical pouch made for comfort and looks, and trimmed at the legs and pouch with soft contrast linen piping.

– Vintage thong styling

The Perfect Bubble Butt from Manstore Guywear

For those of us who are genetically challenged in the posterior, I have found the answer. The M275 Brief by Manstore is the best butt-enhancer for men that I have encountered to date. Why? It’s made with a blend of polyamide/elastane, which means you can wear it under sportswear or a mid-cut swimsuit with worrying about it acting like sponge. It doesn’t move around one bit and is completely discrete.

They are a little pricey, but you get what you pay for and definitely hang dry them….no tumble dry!
I had to order the from Europe, because I have seen them in the US yet.

PS> Sorry for being slack about writing, but there’s thing called Pinterest that my wife got me hooked onto. I thought it was a just picture website for women to collect ideas for recipes and home-makeovers. Wrong! It’s crack, uber-addictive and will make 3 hours disappear in seconds.

Garcon Model Briefs

Putting on a pair of Garcon Model briefs felt as soothing as slipping into a warm bath. These are very well-made underwear that contours the body perfectly by hugging every curve of my mid-section. The front pouch is molded providing plenty of room and the seams offer support.

Another bonus is that there are “No Tags”. Tags drives me nuts by rubbing the small of my back of top of my crack. I can’t understand why all designers have not flipped into this branding, especially for thongs and bikinis. I’d pay the extra buck to go tag-less instead of risking a tear trying to take them off. Big thumbs up!

They have a shimmering appearance to them too but nothing overboard, just a nice modern, yet sexy look. A bit pricey at $25-30 a pair, but you get what you pay for and they offer a variety of colors too. Big Thumbs Up!

Comfy Long Johns from Andrew Christian

I don’t know about you, but to me nothing is more comfortable than a soft, form-fitting pair of Long John’s during the winter. It’s difficult to find good fitting ones because I have the shortest legs in the history of 5’10 men. If you want to baffle a retail clerk just ask for a pair of 33/28 jeans. I don’t think that Long Johns aren’t supposed to scrunch at the knees. Conversely, waistbands are supposed to sit on the sternum either when I pull them up. I’m not even going comment on the crotch area but picture how awful that perverted old man looked in Road Trip.

I haven’t ran across anything from Andrew Christian that I wasn’t thoroughly impressed with, so I pulled the trigger on their Almost Naked Action Boxers. Not sure about these being called boxers, but in the south they are called Long Johns.

Great choice, ungodly comfortable, and fit perfectly! The bamboo fabric feels incredible, sits low-waisted, and it contours flush on the rear. The pouch is roomy for even the most well-endowed. The pants conically mimic a second skin as it rolls down my leg with slight scrunch at the ankles. Did I mention they’re comfy….get a pair, you won’t be disappointed.

PiKante Glow Thong Underwear

Sorry for slacking off recently as a heavy workload and the flu bug wreaked havoc through this house….finally getting back to normal now. Caribbean vacation in t-minus 4 weeks! A beach chair, cold beverage, bikini sunning, and hours of nothing….ahh!

If I had a underwear preference for everyday wear, I normally go for the bikini or brief first. But PiKantes Glow Thongs are extremely comfortable and with the added hint of shimmer, the definitely caught the wife’s eye that morning.

The majority of metallic shiny underwear or swimwear that I’ve encountered tends to have one drawback….too tight! When its underwear for the day, that’s an even bigger gamble with a thong. Not the case here as PiKante uses the perfect Nylon/Spandex blend for a thong that provides roomy pouch and stretchy T-Back that doesn’t chafe. As with most Latin producers, they run a little small on us Americans so consider sizing up for comfort and definitely hang-dry all shimmer-style underwear.

I found them at a compression apparel website called Healing Enhancements, Compression Garments.

Ergowear’s XD3 Bikini

An oldie but goodie…in new colors! I think the first time I bought a pair of Ergowear Bikini XD3’s high-speed Internet was a premium upgrade on my bill. They used to just make these in standard black and white, but over the years they will come out with new color. Naturally, I picked up a few pairs, especially the Fuschia.

The recipe is still the same though, ergonomic perfect pair of underwear. If I had to pick an all-time top 5 pairs of underwear, these would be on it. They contour completely through the leg holes, with seamless butt coverage, and plenty of pouch space for all. These should be a staple in any mans underwear drawer and ideal for all occasions.
