Boxer Shorts for Christmas – Stay on Trend

Yes, you can go down the standard route and opt for cheap, scratchy novelty items. You’ll get a laugh for a moment but then they’ll probably end up in the trash! Instead invest in quality and you’ll get boxer shorts which will last until Christmas 2014.
Designer mens underwear can be bought at affordable prices. Our favourite retailers online are dedicated to offering competitive prices whilst also offering designer quality from some of the top brands on the market. If you want boxer shorts under your Christmas tree then consider some of these key lines, perfect for winter and perfectly within budget.

For the Sportsman

If you’ve an athlete in the family then Jockey is the brand for you. Their microfibre sport active boxer shorts are ideal for the sportsman in your life or could be the kick they need to get along to the gym in the New Year. The green accent on the waistband adds a nice touch so these boxer shorts don’t simply look like any other pair.





For the Fashion Conscious

Shapewear is the choice for the guy in your life who always wants to look his best. Tight, on trend jeans mean that the right underwear is essential for comfort and the impression you make. 2xist dual life shape trunks may not look inspiring but the technology within the design offers optimal front and rear enhancement.










Keep Warm

If you’re looking for something a little different than your regular boxers then think about thermals. Who doesn’t want to benefit from the additional warmth of thermal long johns and shirts? Jockey once again bring us these fabulous thermals and they’re the perfect alternative to boxers. They may be a great present if you’ve got someone in your life who grumbles about the cold or works in the frosty early mornings.

Boxer shorts for Christmas can be a genuine present rather than a joke, if you dedicate some time and effort to grabbing some great value, designer choices.

How to Make Your Money Go Further This January

Whether you’re single, in a relationship or married with children, we all find January a difficult month financially. With present buying, boozy nights out and splurging on festive foods, it’s no wonder that you’re feeling the pinch this month. However you can still take full advantage of the January men’s underwear sales by following these top tips:

Tip #1: Only Buy It If You’re Going To Wear It


During sale times, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the frenzy of buying bargains without clearly thinking about the item you are buying. You should only buy a pair of men’s briefs, boxer shorts or trunks if you answer yes to all of these questions:

·         Is it my style?

·         Do I like the colour scheme?

·         Will it fit me now?

·         Will I wear it regularly throughout the year?

If the answer is ‘no’, then don’t buy the item in question as chances are that it will sit in your underwear drawer reserved for washing days.

Tip #2: Think Spend Not Save
When it comes to buying designer men’s underwear in the sales, try not to look at the ‘SAVE £x’ wording but just at the price it’s on sale at. When we see a big saving we automatically think that we are getting a bargain but if you actually don’t really like the product or don’t think it’s worth the money it’s being sold at, then don’t buy it.

Tip #3: Think Birthdays
If you know of someone who is going to be celebrating a birthday in the next few months, then look for suitable underwear styles as gifts whilst browsing online. Now’s the time to snap up some key designer underwear items from the likes of Calvin Klein Underwear or Jockey whilst paying a low price. Remember that the recipient won’t know that you bought it in the sales.

Hopefully by following these top tips, you will be able to make your money go further this January.

Jockey launches new campaign 'Hot City Cool Down'

Fashion label Jockey launched its ‘Hot City Cool Down’ campaign to celebrate the company’s “staycool” line of innovative men and women’s underwear. The range has been designed to regulate skin temperature, which will allow the wearer to remain cool and comfortable in hot conditions.

Professional American Football Quarterback and spokesperson for Jockey, Tim Tebow, was on hand to co-present the special events, which transformed an outdoor pavilion at Orlando Premium Outlets in Florida into a fashion show that for 300 guests.

Models strutted the catwalk area showing off the staycool Jockey underwear range, whilst the show was streamed live on Jockey’s Facebook page. At the end of the spectacle, guests were treated to a huge staycool product giveaway from Jockey and free ice cream as part of the ‘Hot City Cool Down’ drive.

A second show in Orlando had been planned, but weather conditions forced the cancellation of the event, so instead, fans were invited to join Tim Tebow at the Jockey Outlet store where the Football star posed for photos.

A spokesperson for Jockey said, “We are excited to kick off Jockey’s ‘Hot City Cool Down’ campaign to celebrate our staycool collection and help America keep cool this summer. It was wonderful giving the state of Florida a very cool opportunity to meet with Tim Tebow today.”

The staycool range of men’s Jockey underwear uses an Outlast technology treatment, which incorporates phase change materials that absorb, store and release excess heat, which helps to maintain optimal external body temperature. The technology treatment is actually printed on to the fabric, which creates an invisible microclimate between the underwear and the skin to regulate the temperature.

Jockey are one of the leading manufacturers and designers of men’s underwear and they often use the most up to date technologies to make their products stand out from the rest.

2(x)ist launch Military-inspired briefs

2(x)ist mens underwear has been creating cutting-edge fashion items with contoured shapes and superb comfort since they were founded in 1991. The company has grown to become one of the most iconic men’s lifestyle brands in the world, with underwear to fit any occasion. Leading the way in the evolution of fabrics, materials and the technology to create the best fitting underwear they can produce, 2(x)ist have recently launched a new range that is sure to be yet another hit for this fashion-forward company.

The Military range from 2(x)ist is available in White, Black, Black Camo, Army Green and Lead, all of the colours you would find on military gear. These are incredibly comfortable men’s underwear and are made up of Pique-Fle(X), 6 % Spandex, 37 % Modal and 57 % cotton.

The Military range comes in a vest design, brief or low-rise trunk with shorter legs for ease of movement and comfort.  

One thing that 2(x)ist does well with its underwear is the excellent fitting that also ensures the underwear does not lose its shape. The military range is no exception thanks to its triple needled bindings and ticks all those boxes with an ‘ultra-contoured pouch’, which means they have been made to provide support as well as comfort.

The waistband is a striking metallic silver colour, which accentuates the design of the briefs very well and gives them a bit of shine to offset the military colours. It features a large 2(x)ist logo and a hanging (X) tag.
