LeBarcelone by Dylan Ribkoff [Contest]

The new LeBarcelone can be summed up pretty easily; they are a tricked out pair of tighty-whities! No, these certainly aren’t the briefs your dad would wear, these underwear have style. Here’s why.

What’s to love about these underwear is the bold 1 3/4” red waistband with the contrasting white stitched Dylan Ribkoff logo spanning the front. From the back, the waistband cheekishly says in white stitching ‘What’s Underneath’ on both the left and right sides. The trim is nicely hidden with matching red thread.

These underwear are made with traditional men’s cotton underwear fabric made of 93% cotton and 7% spandex. Over time, they will fade and stretch from washing and wearing. The back is a solid piece of fabric, so unless you have been doing your Jane Fonda’s and have a tight ass, miracles won’t be worked here.

The legs are nicely finished with white trim and white threading, which keeps them snug and in place throughout the day. The double-layed pouch isn’t overly generous in size, which works to your advantage if you’re well-equipped and want to show off your package. The pouch is framed with white flatlock stitching, bringing focus to the area.

LeBarcelone retail for $24 CDN and can be purchased online.

Dylan Ribkoff is the creation of Canadian designer, Dylan Ribkoff. The Montreal based underwear designer is passionate about innovating the industry by creating uniquely designed undergarments for the fashion-hearted.

Jack of Pump! Underwear

The world of underwear just got more fun and exciting with the recent release of Jack of Pump, by Montreal underwear designers Pump!  The Jack of Pump is a modern take on a classic design, cleverly incorporating a the Jack of Hearts from a casino blackjack playing card onto a pair of men’s fashion underwear.

As first glace, these underwear will make you want to touch them and try them on. The bold colour palette and rubberized graphics will fill a gap in your underwear drawer.

A coloured imprinted face of the jack proudly sits on the right front hip, a red imprinted heart front and centre on the pouch, and a bright red rubber ‘J’ jumps off the left hip. Three small red rubber diamonds adorn the back right side.

The underwear is made from 96% cotton and 4% spandex, giving them a soft, comfortable, form-fitting fit. They are comfortable enough to wear all day; and the cotton is easy breathing.

A classic low-rise trunk style is about all that is standard about this underwear. The electric blue, 1.25” dual embossed logo waistband really stands out. There is a huge white Pump! logo across the front, and another smaller Pump! logo on the back right side. The extra thick metallic-elastic waistband keeps the garment securely in place while you go about your activities.

The dual-layered, contoured pouch provides ample room and the red trim enhances the form-fitting shape. The legs have bright blue trim with complimentary reinforced blue stitching.

When putting on Pump! underwear for the first time, the stiffness of the rubber coating appears to feel uncomfortable, however, after having them on for just a few moments, it’s not even noticeable.

Machine wash warm, only non-chlorine bleach. Tumble dry on low head. Cool iron if needed (avoiding rubber areas). Wash with bright or white colors separately.

Pump! underwear tends to fit small; consider purchasing one size larger than you normally wear.

Boxer briefs are $36 and regular briefs are $24.50.

You can take a gable at the casino, but not on Pump! underwear. Overall, Pump! has created an exceptional pair of quality underwear at an affordable price.

Pump! underwear can be purchased online through their website or at select retail locations across Canada including Priape.

The updated design gives greater lift and visual size enhancing effect, which they call ‘4D Virtual Grid Framing’. aussieBum has incorporated a patented feature which provides greater sway freedom, maintaining superior comfort and support.

“The aussieBum Wonderjock technology revolutionised the way men perceive themselves in underwear,” said aussieBum founder Sean Ashby. “We gave men the opportunity to live confidently knowing that at all times, they were putting their best asset forward – their sense of self confidence.”

The aussieBum WJ Pro comes in a range of colours and styles including brief, trunk and for the first time ever the jockstrap.

In traditional aussieBum style, the underwear is made from high-quality soft cotton, allowing for maximum flexibility and adapts to all shapes and sizes.

Play Hard in Sweat Under Gear


If you’re like many other guys who go to the gym and work-out on a regular basis, you’re probably looking for strong, long-lasting and masculine underwear. Vancouver based Sweat Under Gear has developed a line of underwear that is both comfortable and masculine quality. As baby boomers spend more time on healthy eating, exercise and sport, men are in better shape then their fathers where co-founders Tal and Ron feel everyone deserves to have a choice in underwear that looks and feels sexy.

“Friends started telling us they were on the same quest for underwear that reflected their active lives but but did not rely on gimmicky prints and materials,” said co-founder and owner, Tal Thompson.

“Quality underwear that keeps masculinity in check was our goal as we forged ahead to provide a look and feel that is timeless and appropriate for any man,” said Tal. “We are so proud to say that we have customers in their teens and the oldest that we know of is 87, although he says he admits to only 65.!”

Sweat Under Gear comes in standard white or black and in five unique styles:

  • Sweat Briefs – Grey piping frames your legs and your ‘stuff’, drawing attention right where you want it. The ribbed fabric is soft yet weighty and made of 90% cotton and 10% spandex for a comfortable fit.
  • Sport Briefs – These contoured briefs hug you in all the right places leaving stuff in the spot you left it. The soft jersey material is the highest quality too. The Sports Brief is topped off with the signature ‘Sweat’ waistband.
  • Sweat Jocks – A jock that is hot and sexy, finished with a quality that can be worn every day. It has a wider waistband like a traditional jockstrap, classic fitting leg bands and cotton spandex pouch.
  • Fighter Briefs – The Fighter Brief is made of a comfortable blend of spandex and polyester. The backside forms perfectly around your seat, the front side is draped allowing movement to feel as if you are wearing nothing at all.
  • Sweat Trunks – A waist low enough to be sexy, but high enough to leave your butt crack hidden safely inside. Made of soft, comfortable stretchable cotton spandex blend, contoured pouch, comfy leg and  the signature ‘Sweat’ waistband.

Tal says, “Our pledge to you is that we will continue to seek out the best materials and the best craftsmanship we can.”

There is also a collection of Sweat Work Out Gear is available in shorts and training pants.

Sweat Under Gear is available in both retail and online.

Andrew Christian Gets Into The Holiday Spirit
