Beckham bares all in public

Ok so it certainly isn’t the first time we have seen David Beckham in little more than his shorts, several of his sizzling adverts show him wearing nothing more than his boxer shorts and a smile, but how often has he stripped on the pitch in front of the crowd.

At his last game this week, that is exactly what happened after the mega star received a nasty cut to the finger during a LA Galaxy game, and the copious amounts of blood made rather a mess of his kit. Sadly despite the tabloids promising pictures of the star in his pants all we actually saw was a topless Becks - yummy none the less but sadly with his shorts firmly on. It turns out that much to their annoyance the massive run of paps largely missed this incident, and any that did capture the moment on film have yet to release it for public consumption, so for now all we can see is this leaked image, but press pack, please note - we do want to see them soon.

We cannot tell from this image what brand of designer men’s underwear was concealed beneath his kit shorts, but we do know they are white briefs and that over the past few years Armani was a definite favourite in the Beckham household. But we wonder if his loyalty has moved in recent months to another brand?

Whatever the brand was, it appears he had chosen white probably as he wouldn’t want them showing under his shorts. We hope he didn’t get any blood on them, it won’t be easy to get out! Obviously we send our best to David and hope his finger is not badly injured, perhaps we should send him some new mens briefs (in black this time) in case he is a pair down!

Making the news - in his underwear

What started out as a relatively small awareness raising idea has caught the imagination of millions of people around the globe. The Guy at Home is a virtual blog, following the antics on webcam of one man as he spends 25 days wearing nothing more than his boxer shorts and a smile (and doesn’t leave the four walls of his home either).

The aim of his antics is to raise awareness and money for testicular cancer, ‘the guy’ is himself a survivor of the disease so knows better than most the importance of regular checking to ensure quick detection. However we assume he wasn’t prepared for the worldwide interest and the vast amount of support he has received - this guy and his cause has gone viral - he is everywhere. Our only complaint is that his choices in underwear are certainly not designer men’s underwear in fact some of them have been rather sad and tired (and that is putting it mildly!). We certainly cannot fault his cause and wish him vast amounts of luck. He is now well over halfway through and his tush togs are not getting much better, in fact sometimes they really seem worse.

Maybe with so much time on his hands (although he has had several visitors to his Canadian home so maybe he is busier than he thought he might be), he could take the time to browse the many online shops we are proud to feature and get himself some decent pants! In less than 10 days his mission will have ended but we really do think he needs to spring clean that bottom drawer and get some better specimens before he starts going out into the world once more! Come on Guy, it is time to go shopping -you don’t need to leave the house and the friendly postie will bring them right to your door!

Remember remember the 5th of November

Like kids in a candy store we get excited about fireworks night. The pretty colours are a sight to be seen and hey it’s another great excuse to throw a party and have a get together with friends. It also gets us thinking about designer men’s underwear - not that we think about much else and yes we need to get out more!
Seriously though, fireworks night is all about colour and impact - and that sits perfectly with some of the gorgeous undies out there from some of the best designers on the market. We showcased some of the glorious offerings from Bum Chums the other day and they are perfect examples of sparkling firework standard underwear! They even have the metallic look finish to really set your bottom a shimmer - whit whoo! Other designers may have opted for the matt look, but some of the colour combinations are simply explosive and we just love them.

Bjorn Borg underwear is a great favourite of ours, like an old friend we are always pleased to see them turning out new ranges. The latest range of pants contains riots of colour, clearly a Bjorn Borg designer's thing and there is at least one pair that really looks like a firework explosion in the sky - what better undies to wear for your firework party, work it baby work it!

Calvin Klein 365 underwear could actually have the whole market sewn up as they have everyday undies for every taste, so check them out too. The great thing is you still have three weeks to go, so plenty of time to visit some of our favourite online undies retailers and stock up.

Oh, and don’t forget the invites and the supplies of fireworks and drinks to get the party going, but do remember the fireworks code lads! We want no reports of "pants on fire"! Actually - we would like to hear any dramatic stories like that! - just send them in to us :)

Never mind the Grinch, this Christmas demand the Ginch Gonch

Now come on guys much as you might like to deny it we all remember the Grinch. A Jim Carey creation brought to life on the big screen. A green curious looking creature who wasn’t renowned for his good humour, in fact such was his grump with the world that the Grinch stole Christmas. Well the good news is Ginch Gonch, the not so green looking men’s designer underwear moguls have brought the spirit of Christmas back. The Ginch Gonch saved Christmas!

Now one of the reasons this brand sits so well with a delightful tale aimed at children is because Ginch Gonch have used our childhood memories to create bang up to date adult classics that we believe are going to be around for years to come. Billed as men’s underwear with attitude Ginch Gonch boxer shorts are inspired and fun, something that you are sure to enjoy.

Currently we have found 4 designs that bring out the kid in us, but at the same time have a masculine twist that gives them appeal to guys over the age of 18! If we reveal the names of these designs as "I Love London", "I Love Bacon", and "Fruit Juice" you may be able to imagine them. Pop over to the Ginch Gonch page and have a look - you wont be far wrong!

These pants clearly don’t take themselves too seriously, and as a consequence this is one brand that we love...
