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

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

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

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.

SYLVESTER STALLONE’S BRIEFS ON SALE ON A FRENCH CLASSIFIED AD SITE!

LeBonCoin, a French classified ad site, is renowned for its scatterbrained ads and its sometimes strange objects. At the end of November 2013, a collector registered on this website put on sale a particularly unusual collector’s piece: briefs that have been worn by the very famous Sylvester Stallone! The collector claims to have received it from the actor himself. These undergarments have been worn during a VIP party in 1992 and there is even a photo to support his story. These grey briefs are from the brand Westchom Mustchom and have a black waistband. It is a shame for the fans of the actor, but the sellers has washed them!

Stallone

These briefs have reportedly been given to him by the star at the Planet Hollywood in Disneyland Paris, as he was touring to promote John Rambo in February 2008. The briefs have been put on sale at 150 euros and have since then been bought by a fan of the actor.

If you missed the chance to buy Sylvester’s briefs, Solendro selected for you elegant undergarments that will be perfect on every occasion. A selection that could definitely appeal to our favorite actor.

EA

For the actor’s fans. This 2-pack Emporio Armani briefs contains a pair of underwear identical to those of the star. Extremely comfortable grey low-waisted briefs with a black waistband.

CK

If you are looking for optimum support and a very soft waistband, these classic briefs by Calvin Klein in the same tones of grey and black will perfectly adapt to all your movements.

RL

If you prefer wearing boxer briefs, this grey item by Ralph Lauren will be a perfect companion. Its cotton material makes it very pleasant to wear all day long.

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.

AFTER MANSCARA AND GUYLINER, HERE COMES MENGERIE

No need to sneakily steal your ladylove’s panties anymore: you can now have your own lacy underwear.

Until now reserved exclusively to women, sexy undergarments made from lace are coming into men’s wardrobes. Indeed, a growing number of men post very sexy pictures on social networks, on which they wear lacy undergarments. Called “menagerie” (made up from “men” and “lingerie”), this trend relies on the typical features of lingerie (frills, openwork lace, satin materials…) and offers items adapted to men’s bodies.

culotte dentelle

Even though this concept is not new, the number of fans is rising. Established in 2008, the brand Homme Mystere is a pioneer in this field and offers all kinds of products, from the simplest thongs to basques with suspender belts, including undershirts and silk pyjamas.

guêpière

It is up to you to decide if you want to wear these very uncommon undergarments (or not). Members of Solendro’s team nevertheless thought that, even for athletes with a perfect body, trying to make a move wearing briefs made from lace and sequins seems far more difficult than with body-hugging Eden Park or Calvin Klein boxer briefs on. But, in the end, everyone does as he pleases.

Before taking a firm decision on this important subject, you can come discover our wide range of products on Solendro.com, which are far more traditional and comfortable and will discreetly enhance your curves while providing you all the softness and freedom of movement you need.

WHY DO WOMEN BUY MEN’S UNDERWEAR?

The clothing chain Marks & Spencer recently claimed that around a half of men’s undergarments sold by its stores were bought by women. In the meantime, the luxury brand ACNE Studio is launching an underwear line with a “neutral style”. Are men’s undergarments the latest unisex trend?

According to Marks & Spencer, well-known for its status as official empire of British underwear, women begin to buy men’s undergarments not aiming at offering them to their partners. Indeed, almost a half of men’s underwear is bought by women. Even though it is difficult to assess if these customers buy these for themselves or for their partners, the retail chain wondered if it suggests that men’s undergarments now belong to the shared account for women, regardless of if they wear them themselves or not.

All underwear brands such as Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabanna already admitted designing their collections keeping in mind the seduction of women.

After the launch of unisex undergarments and the recent success of collections of boxer shorts and boxer briefs inspired by women’s lingerie, men’s underwear is reaching new customers. Women also want the comfort provided by long boxer briefs and the lightness of boxer shorts made from cotton, but in a more refined style, of course. If men’s undergarments are the new must-have products of women, the reverse seems more unlikely to happen.

A WOMAN PREVENTS HER HUSBAND FROM KILLING HIMSELF BY CATCHING HIM BY HIS BRIEFS!

It is unbelievable but true. August 2013, in the city of Changchun, located in the North of China, a man was attempting suicide from the 6th floor of his building but his wife arrived right on time and saved his life!

How? By catching him by his boxer briefs before grasping one of his legs.

It lasted 20 minutes, the time for the rescue personnel to arrive.

Passers-by told the press that they heard somebody scream and saw a man hanging from the window and his wife gripping his undergarments.

This woman was calling for help while firmly holding him but since the apartment door was locked and couldn’t be smashed open, nobody managed to help her before the rescue arrived.

This sad story ending well proves that undergarments are indispensable and even, in this case, vital.

We will present to you a few essential items sold on Solendro that all men should have in their wardrobe.

Let’s begin with this 3-pack white cotton boxer briefs by Emporio Armani.

EA

These boxer briefs are great classics. They are neither long nor short and provide a comfort that is faithful to the quality of the brand.

Then, we have these black stretch cotton boxer briefs by Calvin Klein.

CK

They have a close-fitting cut and have been designed to slim down your silhouette while providing great freedom of movement.

Finally, what do you think about these very elegant boxer briefs by the brand Eden Park?

EP

At the same time original and well-cut, they will please you for sure!

We love the little polka dots on the waistband that give a feeling of lightness and freedom.

These boxer briefs are a sure bet!
