Underwear is an integral part of any gentleman’s outfit.
Underwear. It’s probably the most-worn clothing you have, and yet, as Menswear Style points out, it’s “a garment often overlooked by many men.” Well, we say “no more”!
Once upon a time underwear was actually outerwear (think: loin cloths). Then came the codpiece (Henry VIII decorated his for maximum effect). Later, full body suits emerged and 1920s pugilists gave designers the idea for boxer shorts. And from there, modern pants evolved.
Today, long underwear is reserved for cold weather. And even men can wear thongs. (They shouldn’t, but they can). It’s a bold, brave new underwear world we live in, and we’re almost overwhelmed with choice.
Fear not – we’ve put together a comprehensive (yet brief) briefs briefing to guide you.
