Does the man who has everything, really have it all?


Some men seem to have it all, designer phone, designer jacket, designer watch, the wheels, and some even get the stunning 'former model' that they met in the bar on Friday night! Now for the rest of us, maybe we can at least get a foot in the door by investing in some designer men's underwear that can make or break the look. Now we all know the wrong pair of pants won't ruin your date entirely, but the right pair can certainly help make your night, and, if you play your cards right, the morning after as well!

As Callum Best recently proved on 'Come Dine with Me', the 'man about town' really does need the complete package to be able to perfect his look. But despite this, most men rarely think twice about what they need to cover that peachy tush that took weeks at the gym to perfect. Instead they still rely on the set their mum gets them at Christmas.

Whilst having a clean pair on is good if you are planning on getting into an accident, they are hardly likely to win over the hearts and minds of anyone fortunate enough to see them outside of an accident situation.

Likewise - the carefully well-worn pair of off-white 'pulling pants' that we know you guys have hidden away are not really going to cut the mustard when the lights are low and the pressure is on. So what to choose? Callum accidentally revealed his choice with his low slung jeans on the show, and we agree Calvin Klein Underwear is always a firm favourite and an easy choice to make. But there are also many other good brands that will be equally as good for men wanting to complete their ensemble. Sloggi and HOM also offer an excellent ranges of stylish well made, good fitting and comfortable boxers all guaranteed to be a hit.

Now much like the celebrity who doesn't want to get pap'd whilst shopping for smalls, many of you don't want to be seen out shopping for designer underwear, so go shopping for them online not only does it make better financial sense, but you can sit in comfort and check out all the different brands and styles with a hot coffee and chocolate biscuit. A good selection of designer men’s underwear should be a firm fixture within every mans wardrobe. It is definitely something that men should consider spending more time on and endeavour to replace any old, tatty well worn underwear. Try complimenting them with some quality loungewear at the same time, then when you are relaxing the day after the night before you will again be at your designer best. If you are going to spend all that money on trips to the gym to firm up the body and tone up the muscles, and then cover them in the best clothes and designer togs - then you have to have the boxers or briefsto match - sorry lads that’s just the way it is!

Ah the celeb life...



Made famous by the smash hit of Twilight, it is clear that actor Robert Pattinson is still struggling to come to terms with the new found interest in his life. During a recent interview he was exclaiming his surprise at being papped wherever he went, specifically in this case on an outing to purchase underwear. Now whilst we are pleased to see a celeb taking a healthy interest in how he dresses his tush, we have to say he has his technique all wrong!

He is going to have to learn that now he has photographers in constant pursuit, and his every move is monitored he needs to be shopping for his designer men’s underwear on the internet. With no danger of being snapped in action, or ever having to leave the comfort of his sofa he can get the best choice in terms of brilliant boxers, terrific trunks and perfect pants. Currently he could do a lot worse than to have a good old nose at 2(x)ist Underwear who have launched a storming range this season, and also bring us the best in men's shapewear.

Now guys like Robert probably don’t suffer from muffin tops, wobbly bits and stomach overhang, but hey for the real man, and by that we mean those of us that work every day and don’t get to swan around various premieres and red carpet events whilst taking a few hours to pose in front of the camera, then this shapewear range could be a real boon. It is hard to say how much airbrushing goes on in the land of the Hollywood hunk, we know they airbrush those lovely ladies to perfection, but do the men get the same treatment? Mr Pattinson certainly seems to have a buff body, and the ladies really seem to love him but rather than let the green eyed monster in, consider Form undies from 2(X)IST underwear and see how much better you feel about your own less than toned torso!



Designed to lift and sculpt, the Form range comes in either a trunk or brief to suit your preference, and had a high rise tummy panel to pull in and control all those bits you would rather didn’t exist. Yes we suspect they stole the idea from the female fashion world, but who can blame them. Ladies have been using undergarments to tame the flesh for literally years, corsets did just that, and modern undies have taken their lead and brought the trend bang up to date. Rather than get worried about what anyone might think about these new undies, we suggest you just quietly take advantage of the body shaping power and enjoy the comments that are sure to follow. The all important ab-panel is known in most cases to reduce the waist by 1-2 inches, which clearly gives a better silhouette, so all that is left for you, and Robert to do, is choose black or white, trunks or briefs and take full advantage of this excellent shaping control - we love it.

Oh No Not Commando!

We are not sure whether it is something we would really want to share with the world at large, but apparently UK daytime television host Jeremy Kyle has no such concerns. He is quite happy to reveal that he doesn’t wear underwear, and hasn’t done for over 20 years. The revelations were made during an interview for the Guardian newspaper where he was asked to reveal a secret. It is obviously not known whether he just felt like being a bit of a cheeky chappie and made up the little white lie or whether he really does prefer to go commando, however if the latter is true we consider it is largely possible that he just hasn’t seen the fantastic range of designer men’s underwear on offer and has sensibly got tired of cheap pants that just can’t cut it.

What he needs to do is have a look at the best offerings on sale across the designer men’s underwear marketplace. It is completely understandable to be put off wearing underwear if you have been plagued by badly fitting uncomfortable pants, and it is stating the obvious to say that in order to mass produce quite so many cheap boxers, corners must be cut. We wonder if the Calvin Klein X range could tempt him back into bottoms, this range is hot and looks pretty good too. All styles are on offer, from trunks, briefs and boxer shorts it doesn’t matter what your personal favourites are this range has them all.

Defined by the large Calvin Klein lettering around the waist band, bold red or blue lettering on the black elasticated waist band, with a block colour body in many colours, classic white, sexy black or watermelon the choice is endless and hot off the manufacturing line. Klein’s are known for their style combined with all day comfort and fantastic quality so we know you won’t be disappointed if you test drive some of these Mr Kyle. Does anyone have his email address, mobile number or home address we really feel that we should share the secrets of great underwear with him, save him having to go without!

The shorts and pants in the range are made from either cotton (defined by blue logo) or best microfiber (defined by the red logo) which is a blend of Nylon and Elastane, which gives these classy boxers simply the best feel when worn. Plus - the hidden secret body defining cut that adds to your natural shape and enhances it in all the right places, hides the bits you are not proud off and flaunt the bits you love. Ladies will just love to look to gaze in wonder, of that you can be sure, so what are you waiting for lads! Grab yourself a range of Calvin Klein X underwear today and pick up not only style and comfort but just a little bit of X-tra special class , you will never want to go commando again (if ever you did!!) Now who is going to make sure Jeremy gets this insider scoop?
