Christmas Inspired Men’s Underwear

With Christmas just a few weeks away, it’s time to get into the festive mood. Now you could invest in a Santa costume and wear it to the shops but you might get some strange looks without the accompanying reindeer. Or you could put on a festive print tie which plays a merry Christmas tune for the office but we doubt your co-workers will be very impressed. We therefore have the perfect solution in the form of Christmas inspired men’s underwear. Now we’re not talking about novelty pants with fur trim or music, we’re talking about classic festive underwear in red and green tones. Having scoured an array of boxer shorts and men’s briefs online, here are our top three designs to get you in the mood for Christmas:

Number 1 – In our first place position is the Polo Ralph Lauren Woven Boxer Gift Set which is available to buy online from Figleaves. This two pack set contains a pair of red boxer shorts featuring the iconic Polo logo and a pair of red, blue and white check boxer shorts. Maybe it’s just the red colour scheme that reminds us of Christmas or maybe it’s the check pattern that reminds us of our Grandad’s pyjamas from years gone by. Whatever it is, we think this gift set makes a great festive addition to your underwear drawer.

Number 2 – In second place are the Calvin Klein Pro Stretch Boxer Briefs which can be purchased online from Whites And Smalls. These simplistic men’s trunks are classic white and have a contrasting red waistband. These trunks remind us of Santa’s outfit, although maybe in reverse.

Number 3 – In our third place position we have the Diesel Fresh Bright Underwear in Green which can be bought online from Banglads. These funky boxer shorts remind us of lush, fresh green Christmas trees before all the needles fall off and they turn brown.

Underpants for Christmas



With less than six weeks to go, we’re surprised that we’ve waited this long to talk to you about Christmas. Underwear as a Christmas gift is nothing new to women with partners buying them frilly pants and dainty nighties while grandmothers and long lost aunts buy them flannelette pyjamas and dressing gowns. But the concept of designer underwear for men at Christmas is a little more modern and people often think it’s simply too difficult a decision to make. In reality though, with so many brands and styles to choose from, you can’t go wrong with designer boxer shorts at Christmas, as long as you know your man’s style:

The Traditionalist
The traditional man likes things that are mainstream and conventional in their styling, plus of course practical. Briefs are usually the perfect style choice for this type of man and it’s better to stick to plain colours and more well-known designer brands. Might we suggest the Calvin Klein 365 2 Pack which is available to buy online from Whites and Smalls. These briefs are more traditional in their styling and as they come in a pack of two, they’re practical too so fit all the criteria. You can choose from either conventional white or classic black.

The Fun Lover
The fun loving man is often light-hearted and doesn’t take life too seriously. The ideal designer men’s underwear for him is therefore something colourful which features a bold pattern. Might we recommend the Guitar Hero – Singing the Blues Boxers Shorts by Luis and Juke. Available to buy from Jacksies Underwear Store, these boxer shorts are certainly bright and incorporate a mix of white, lime green, yellow and blue. The guitar imagery means that these boxer shorts are just as light-hearted as the fun loving male recipient.

The Pretty Guy
The pretty guy likes pretty things, including designer underwear. He will love delicate patterns and subtle colours. We are therefore going to suggest the MANstore M241 Mini Pant in Lace which are available from Dead good Undies. These boxer shorts feature a black and white print pattern that resembles lace – you can’t get much more delicate than that.

Urban Alpha launches new Mens Underwear Website

‘Urban Alpha’ has just launched their new designer men’s underwear website aiming to combine great brands and great prices.

“The Urban Alpha brand is aimed at the fashion aware male, who knows that looking good starts with what you wear underneath your clothes” says Andrew Pallett, Director at Urban Alpha Ltd.
