HE PAINTS PUTIN AND MEDVEDEV WEARING LINGERIE BEFORE FLEEING HIS COUNTRY

In 2013, a Russian painter fled his country to France after he had painted Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev back to back wearing women’s underwear.

Konstantin Altunin fled Russia to seek asylum in France after one of his compatriots informed on him to the police, estimating that “the paintings he exhibited were an infringement to Russian legislation”. The police immediately went to the Museum of Power, in Saint Petersburg, where the exhibition was taking place, and seized the paintings in order to “examine” them.

This intervention triggered a controversy about the place of homosexuality in Russia.

To make a long story short, undergarments are much talked about in Russia. Maybe not as much as on Solendro.com, but still. We thus wonder when we will see Angela Merkel or François Hollande in undergarments.

Moral of the story, whether you are a man or a woman, don’t hesitate to stand out from the crowd by buying men’s underwear on Solendro.com, especially since a wide range of new products is now available.

B&C

Bonnie & Clyde boxer briefs. This rather classical grey item will perfectly match all of your outfits.

Les Insurgés

These boxer briefs by Les Insurgés have very high-quality finishing touches and a close-fitting cut that will enable you to wear them with all types of clothes, from suits to more relaxed shorts.

BRIEFS, BOXER BRIEFS OR BOXER SHORTS?

Existential question if there is any: the choice of your undergarments. Since pouch briefs are considered “deal breakers” and teenager’s boxer shorts are not always very appealing, Solendro decided to make an overview of undergarments to avoid at all costs and others to favour, to be at your best, even under your trousers.

Pouch briefs (often white)

Labelled as « grandpa » undergarments, this item dating back to the 1920s famous for its very practical vertical opening, is not the sexiest piece of men’s underwear. This high-risk object is rather denigrated by women.
However, and even though we highly recommend not to wear them for a first date with the woman of your dreams, Solendro selected for you a few items by the brands Sloggi and Eminence.

Boxer briefs
Halfway between boxer shorts and briefs, boxer briefs provide optimum support and comfort while perfectly hugging your body. Contrary to boxer shorts, no need to spend hours to make them slip in your trousers.

Solendro selected short boxer briefs for the everyday life, long boxer briefs that are sportier, original items with bright patterns such as those by Björn Borg and Pull In, simple and elegant ones by Calvin Klein and brighter ones by Diesel. Now, it is up to you.

Slimming boxer briefs

Women don’t have the monopoly of slimming panties designed to make them look slimmer. French brands such as Mariner and Hom offer slimming boxer briefs with subtle colours to enable us to hide our bulges and to gain self-esteem.

 *In order not to chock the youngest ones, we decided not to speak about thongs and jockstraps… We hope than disillusioned people will understand this approach and forgive us.

FOR AN EDUCATED PURCHASE OF MEN’S UNDERWEAR: A GUIDE OF SECUNDARY COLOURS

For all those who feel lost in front of the wide range of men’s underwear, boxer briefs, briefs and boxer shorts offered on Solendro.com, we are here to give you fashion advice.

In order to choose your undergarments wisely, you have to understand their characteristics and the message these boxer briefs, boxer shorts or briefs will deliver to others.

The main characteristics of men’s undergarments are the type of underwear, the material from which they are made, their cut, the size of the waistband, the patterns, the values of the brand, and, of course, the colours!

In this article, we will analyse the secundary colours in order to help you wisely choose your boxer briefs.

Secundary colours:

Secundary colours are obtained by the combination of two primary colours. Those have different meanings and images from primary colours but also keep some of their characteristics.

Green:

Relaxing, refreshing and even invigorating, green represents nature, flora and life resulting from the combination of the yellow of the sun and the blue of water. This secondary colour can represent hope, growth, spring, concentration, permission (green light), regeneration (pharmacy, hospital) and fertility. However, green also represents inexperience (youth), illness, death (it is the colour of corpses and pus). According to the various tones of green, meanings can be different: darker greens (with more blue undertones) are closer to stability, faithfulness and wellness while lighter greens are closer to yellow, the colour of joy and libertinism. This colour perfectly matches brown, ochre, cream and taupe, other colours that can be found in nature.

Orange:

Obtained by the combination of yellow and red, orange represents energy, joy, creativity, communication, security and optimism. Orange is balanced between the passion of red and the joy of yellow. It is the colour of autumn, as the leaves become orange and brown. It is also the sacred colour of Hinduism and Buddhism and it symbolises the renouncement to social life. It also represents the fire purifying bodies and passions and thus liberation. However, since it is a very bright colour, it has to be matched with tones of red and yellow or white. A colour to use carefully!

Purple

Resulting from the combination of blue and red, two antagonistic and rival primary colours, purple triggers intense reactions: whether you like it or you hate it. It represents at the same time dreams, peace, friendship, meditation but also melancholia and loneliness, which are the characteristics of blue. It also symbolises mystery, magic, and the unknown. In the Western culture, purple is associated with the nobility, authority and jealousy. It is also said to represent the penitence and mourning of clergy and fellowship members. Purple is a colour said to calm down emotions without confronting them, just like a glass of good wine. It is also the colour of dreamers or children thinking they are in a fairy world. Yet, it is very difficult to match and only white, black and brown pieces will be appropriate choices.

Now you know everything! You can chose your undergarments wisely on Solendro.com. More than 40 brands and 700 items are waiting for you!

HEALTH: DO BRIEFS PRESENT A RISK TO HEALTH?

Even though we often speak about the style and colours of your undergarments, there are very few articles mentioning the health hazards linked to them. An overview of these health questions with Dr François Grima, a French urologist.

Support is good as long as it doesn’t come with compression

Indeed, excessive heat can be detrimental to spermatozoids. In the case of briefs for example, if testicles are too close to the body, they will heat up, thus reducing the richness of sperm.

Too much compression can lower the quality of sperm” explains the expert, before reassuring us “but briefs wearers don’t have to worry, it won’t make you infertile”.

You also have to take into account the material from which your undergarments are made from. According to Dr Grima, “it is better to opt for undergarments made from cotton. Of course, they won’t be as elastic as those made from Lycra, but they will enable your skin to breathe better and will avoid retaining perspiration”.

Preventing rubbing

On the contrary, if boxer shorts provide a greater freedom of movement, the lack of support of the genitals leaves the door open to rubbing. In some cases, it can lead to irritation and mycosis.

Thus, boxer briefs seem to be the ideal alternative since they offer support without too much compression and freedom of movement without excessive sloshing.

In the end, wouldn’t it be simpler to wear nothing?

In the purest tradition of the Naked Man, many men still advocate the pure and simple absence of undergarments. Even though it can be very useful in some circumstances (I won’t go further on this point), Dr Grima seems more skeptical: “the direct contact with trousers will lead to rubbing and scalds. Not to mention hygiene and a zip fastener accident can happen very quickly”.

We will especially keep this last point in mind.

The most important thing? Hygiene!

Thus, boxer briefs has only a very slight lead. However, “the type of undergarments you choose won’t fundamentally change much”, concludes François Grima. “The most important point is hygiene. Changing your undergarments everyday will prevent annoyance”.

Thank you Doc!

HUNGARY: STUDENTS GO TO CLASS WEARING UNDERGARMENTS TO DEMONSTRATE

In  2013, in order to show that they disapproved the new dress code established in a Hungarian university, students decided to go to class wearing undergarments.

The university in Kaposvar, Hungary, had enforced a new dress code and the director of the university had established very stringent and compulsory rules that banned flip flops and sandals as well as tank tops and low-necked garments.

The result? Closed blouses for girls and not too much make up or perfume.

It reminds us about a similar story in Tajikistan, where female students had to wear high heels.

In front of this new regulation, very discontented students decided to attend their dramatic arts class wearing undergarments!

But there is more: Hungarian students also had to cut their nails and wash their hair. Even though it is part of basic hygiene rules, students were fed up and decided to show they could be resilient! To prove it, they also organised an other demonstration on October 7th, 2013, this time with swimsuits and dressing gowns.

If you, too, want to demonstrate at home and assert yourselves with particular choices of undergarments, Solendro has the solution and selected for you several original items that will make you a funny and offbeat man!

Let’s begin with a pair of socks by the brand Achile.

These socks represent the very famous and old arcade games. Besides their undeniable originality, they will provide you optimum comfort and will surely remind you of your childhood.

You want to be a bit trendier to demonstrate? You can definitely wear these Pull In boxer briefs with fast food patterns.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR BOXER BRIEFS?

Favourite undergarments of French men, boxer briefs appeal to everybody. Brands thus commit to offer various collections: the choice is almost endless.

Boxer briefs provide good support and are very stylish (sporty, elegant, etc.). This is the reason why you shouldn’t be worried about the consequences when choosing them.

You will have understood that boxer briefs reveal your way of life and some parts of your personality.

Above all, you must choose undergarments at your size: not too tight but not too big either. To help you find undergarments that perfectly fit, Solendro created a size guide combining all the brands we work with.

When it comes to the material which your boxer briefs are made from, it is up to you. We can recommend some to you but the most important aspect is the comfort provided by each material.

For example, cotton is not as comfortable as silk.

Moreover, don’t look for the lowest prices. Even though they may seem expensive sometimes, boxer briefs manufactured by big brands are of high quality and you will be able to wear them far longer than entry-level items.

A FEW TIPS TO CHOOSE YOUR UNDERGARMENTS WISELY

Many men have a hard time going shopping, especially when it comes to choosing their undergarments. However, be careful! We deplore too often having chosen boxer shorts, boxer briefs or even briefs in which we don’t feel comfortable and we regret not to have taken a step back. Here are a few tips not to make the same mistakes again.

How to choose the right boxer shorts?

The first thing is to determine your size.

On Solendro.com, it is possible to compare the size of a pair of underwear with those of other brands thanks to the “size guide”. What is the equivalent of a size 40? M? No more doubts, now you can choose the size that fits you very easily.

Then, you have to take a look at the material your boxer shorts are made from because some are softer or more comfortable to wear than others, especially as some people (maybe you) have allergies or itching. In that case, cotton and elastomer remain sure bets, even though it is hard to refuse silk undergarments (socks for example).

Finally, when you will be wearing your new undergarments, they have to be like a second skin. You should feel so comfortable that you don’t even feel them.

A few tips for a great look…

Men’s undergarments have now become fashion accessories. They even became a fashion support with low-rise jeans. Whether you are in favour of this trend or not, what you wear remains very important.

At the moment, bright colours and patterns are very popular. Yet, whether you prefer classical or original undergarments, Solendro.com selected everything you need to please all of you.

EXCEPTIONAL UNDERGARMENTS FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL PHYSIQUE

Many of us don’t have the chance of having a model’s body and weighing 155 lbs at the very most. The choice of our undergarments then becomes far more complicated than expected. Indeed, a pair of undergarments that rides up and the resulting rubbing soon become unbearable when working or exercising. Fortunately enough, Solendro thought about you and your well-being. We thus offer a selection of men’s boxer briefs that have been especially designed for bulkier men.

However, a few criteria have to be taken into account when choosing your undergarments. Even though it may seem obvious, we would like to highlight this point anyway: gentlemen, short boxer briefs have to be banned from your wardrobes. Indeed, they tend to ride up fast and we have to admit that this sensation is very unpleasant! Moreover, the quality of the undergarments is not to be neglected. For example, the attention paid by the brands about the seams is very important for you: seams of bad quality will result in a not very resistant final product.

To help you make a decision, Solendro selected for you a few items especially designed for our bodies.
