Stripy underwear for men theme at Deadgoodundies
Apr '13
Bold Breton, sweet candy, smart humbug and stunning deckchair stripes, vertical, horizontal and sweeping in sultry curves around the body - stripes have long been a favourite theme among men’s underwear designers. But this year they have come into their own at Deadgoodundies as catwalk designers indulge the trend in all kinds of clothing for the beach, street and smart occasions

Partner in Deadgoodundies.com and experienced fashion writer Jane Garner says men who love the look of stripes but don’t want them to be too high profile in their wardrobe can enjoy stripy undies instead.

“There’s something very cheerful about stripy underpants. Of course they can be very smart, especially in businesslike pinstripes or finer striped options. We do have understated tones, but like the catwalk models, our high profile brands enjoy mixing and clashing colours in bright combinations,” she says.

“Our South American brands in particular have a special flair when it comes to working stripes to the max. Joe Snyder’s stripes are always our top seller, closely followed by Mundo Unico. Another collection that always features stripy looks - from the subtlest ‘self stripes’ where bands are created from different tones of the same colour to daring multicoloured hoops - is Bruno Banani. Their Anti Stress collection is stocked year round at Deadgoodundies in black and white, with seasonal colours added each spring and autumn.”

Jane’s advice to men tempted by the stripe sensation is to pick the scale of their canvas to create the effect they want. A thong with a striped pouch can be as eye catching as a cycle-length short smartly dressed with stripes. And as Jane adds: “While the fashion world has us believe that horizontal stripes can be unflattering, on men’s underwear the flow of stripes around the contours of the lower body can be very attractive, even enhancing!”
