ORIGINALITY IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE POPULAR

Until very recently, men and women who bought undergarments for their partners favoured briefs, often black, and without any pattern. However, times are changing and men are getting more and more involved in the choice of their undergarments, which have become genuine fashion accessories. They allocate a bigger budget to it and colour is now very popular.

Boxer briefs with fancy patterns have grown in popularity, as proven by the resounding success of brands such as Pull In and Björn Borg.

Moreover, fashion designers have initiated a deep change during the last 5 years and ready-to-wear clothing brands stepped into the breach and now display bright colours and big logos. It is the case of the brand Armani for example, which managed to transform its logo into a symbol of manliness, mostly because of its advertising campaigns featuring David Beckham.

Since then, the offer has changed and recentred on style. Materials are more sophisticated and brands are more concerned about the image they spread through their underwear collections. For example, Diesel worked with Lady Gaga’s and Vogue former designer, Nicola Formichetti, for one of its collections, displaying fancy patterns while being deep-rooted in the history of the brand.

Even designers who like sobriety begin to create colourful undergarments, especially with bright-coloured waistbands.

Here are a few examples of the latest trends:

Stonemen boxer briefs have reached the very top of originality in underwear and transform your undergarments into pictures.

THE SENSE OF COLOURS

According to our mood, and often unintentionally, we vary the colours of our undergarments.

Solendro.com deciphered for you the hidden sense of these tone variations and explains the symbolism attached to each one of them.

Brown

Brown is associated with many things that surround us: earth, fauna, flora… It is a neutral colour, neither sad nor joyful, that creates a soft, reassuring and wellness atmosphere. This colour is synonymous with softness as well as stability.

However, it is also associated with degradation, and even death, when it is the dominant colour and immediately makes us think about autumn and brown leaves. Brown is a colour you will never get tired of and which can be easily matched with almost all colours since it is composed of the three primary colours. Why wouldn’t you wear brown boxer briefs to spend a relaxing evening at home?

White

Associated with marriage, innocence and perfection for centuries, white is undoubtedly the favourite colour of the general public.

Obtained by the combination of all colours, white is the symbol of union, but can also represent the vacuum and absence when alone. In Asian culture, white is the colour of mourning, the transition into a new world that is synonymous with rebirth and purity. Generally presented as a positive colour, as opposed to black, white is said to be the colour of brightness, knowledge and sun.

White can be matched with all colours and can even be used to bring out other colours.

Black

Black is not a colour strictly speaking, but rather the absence of colour. Absorbing and intriguing, black represents the unknown, mystery and even the occult and death. In Western countries, black is the traditional colour of mourning but can also represent sadness, fear, bad luck and despair. However, black is also an unavoidable colour in fashion and is synonymous of authority, wealth, elegance and simplicity.

Gentlemen don’t go without this colour in the most courteous and refines seduction games. Just like white, black can be matched with all colours. A must-have in all wardrobes.

DAVID GANDY: THE NEW DAVID BECKHAM OF UNDERWEAR!

Maybe his name doesn’t sound familiar to you, but his body has been on the front page of the biggest men’s fashion magazines. Who is David James Gandy, this model with a very athletic body whom everyone is talking about? Model for the biggest brands and battle-hardened business man, he climbed the ladder to become the best-paid male model in the world.

Everything began in 2001, as his housemate registered him for The Morning Show. He was only 21 at that time and won the competition as well as a contract with the London modelling agency Select Model Management. Then, he encountered immediate success! After Zara, Hugo Boss and H&M (enough for David Beckham to be worried), he paraded for the first time in 2006 for Dolce & Gabbana, before becoming the face… and the body of the brand.

David

Underwear brands select their models carefully since successful models are now also business savvy. This businessman has even designed a range of products for Mark & Spencer: “Taking part in a project with Mark & Spencer was perfect for me. I had the opportunity to work with them on various projects before so it was logical to work together on my own range of products!”

Indeed, David Gandy’s style has found its fans: a combination of an extremely elegant vintage style and a masculine touch, chic and very assertive. Let’s be honest, according to David Gandy, “a man is a bulky guy with charism, just like Paul Newman before and David Beckham nowadays”. Thus, to be elegant in all circumstances, Solendro selected for you a few ideal undergarments. You, too, adopt David Gandy’s style!

MEN’S UNDERWEAR: A MATERIAL GUIDE

When speaking about manufacturing men’s underwear, the first material coming to our minds is inevitably cotton and its by-products (stretch cotton and so on). But cotton is not the only existing material. Thus, Solendro.com wants to make you discover the other materials that are often used to manufacture men’s undergarments.

Viscose

Undergarments made from viscose have a silky finish. This material gives a fluid aspect to men’s underwear and makes them fit perfectly, providing optimum comfort to the wearer. One of the main advantages of viscose undergarments is their ability to absorb humidity faster than cotton ones.

Impetus

Impetus viscose boxer briefs

Polyester

Men’s undergarments made from 100 % polyester are rather rare since polyester is often combined with other materials. We thus can find products made from polyester and cotton or polyester and wool, for optimum comfort and easier maintenance.

The advantages of undergarments made from polyester is that they are very resistant to rubbing caused by movements and washings. Moreover, polyester enables men’s undergarments to be elastic and to come back to their original shape after stretching, making them crease-resistant.

Polyamide

Polyamides are fabrics made from synthetic materials and are often used to manufacture men’s undergarments.

The most common type of polyamide is nylon, a flexible, elasticated, silky and soft material that has the big advantage of being waterproof. Men’s undergarments made from it resist to rubbing, making the maintenance of this type of underwear very easy.

Solendro’s trick: Avoid putting your polyamide undergarments in the dryer because this material is very sensitive to heat.

HOM

Hom boxer briefs made from polyamide

Modal

The biggest brands of men’s underwear use modal to manufacture their undergarments. Modal is a material that enables men’s underwear to be breathable and enables a better evaporation of humidity, for a light and comfortable-to-wear product.

Microfibre

Undergarments made from microfibre provide optimum comfort.

Microfibre is often used to manufacture sport undergarments because it lets perspiration evaporate when you work out. And nothing is more uncomfortable than feeling humidity in men’s undergarments. Materials made from microfibre are more breathable than classic ones, thus naturally protecting your skin. Moreover, men’s underwear made from microfibre are very resistant to heat and can thus be tumble dried.

CK

Calvin Klein polyamide boxer briefs

Lycra

Undergarments made from Lycra are really flexible but don’t stretch and go back to their original shape. Forget about clothes losing their shape after a few washings! This material is also crease-resistant and has a silky touch. Underwear made from Lycra is currently really trendy on the market of men’s undergarments.

Pull In

Pull In boxer briefs made from Lycra

Bamboo

Bamboo is still rarely used to manufacture men’s undergarments even though it makes them unbelievably soft and resistant. Bamboo is the ideal material if you are looking for a second skin sensation.

TOP 5 SPORTS TO TRY THIS AUTUMN

Like every year in September, ads singing the praises of sport are currently flourishing everywhere. Determined to start a sport activity to get rid of your summer excesses, you don’t know which one to choose and you felt tired (not to say exhausted) by merely watching the athletes running during the World Championship in Beijing as you were comfortably sitting in your sofa. Thus, Solendro selected for you 5 activities to try this autumn.

#5: Combat sports

Between 500 and 700 kcal burnt per hour according to the sport you will choose. This kind of sports will enable you to exert yourself and to sculpt your body without even thinking about it and to release the tensions and frustrations of a long day at work. Only problem: since this activity is practised in a club, you will have to adapt your schedule according to the classes.

#4: Swimming

Between 450 and 600 kcal burnt per hour for breaststroke. Despite the fact that going into the water that is always too cold generally is a genuine ordeal, you will never be quiet and you will have to share your water line with other people, all this while swallowing chlorine. For the most audacious among you then.

#3: Rollerskating

Between 400 and 600 kcal burnt per hour. Rollerskating is a good way to develop muscle in your legs, but also your abs and arms while having fun. And even when we look hard, we can’t really find any downside to this sport.

#2: Tennis

Between 400 and 500 kcal burnt per hour. Only inconvenience: to play tennis, you have to be at least two, which means that you will have to motivate somebody else to go out from their sofa and it will certainly be no easy task.

#1: Cycling

Between 350 and 500 kcal burnt per hour. This very complete sport can be practised inside as well as outside and will enable you to develop muscle in your legs and core, providing that you accept wearing (far too) body-hugging shorts and have enough space to store a bike at home.

In order to be sure to have appropriate undergarments to work out, don’t hesitate to come discover our sport range on Solendro.com. You will inevitably find the perfect undergarments among the various cuts and innovative materials especially designed to provide optimum support and comfort without forgetting freedom of movement.
