When it comes to men’s underwear and the men who wear them, there are a few common myths that some guys haven’t put to rest. At Garçon Model, we have researched the top trends in underwear for men, and our studies have indicated that some of the common beliefs are just myths.
Moms (wife) are the ones to buy underwear for their men.
This may be true for a small percentage of guys, but our research has indicated that men do in fact enjoy the underwear that they purchased for themselves more than the underwear that is bought by the woman in their life. Moms are responsible for the clothes shopping for their sons, but usually that begins to change shortly after he hits puberty. He’ll want to look and feel better – retiring the comic-print boy briefs or baggy boxers for something more fitting and comfortable.
The most common style for the teenage guy who shops for his own underwear (even when Mom is paying for them) is boxer briefs – the gateway from baggy boxers to sexier styles that he’ll discover as he gets older. The Trunks by Garçon Model are the perfect choice for these guys – it’s a well-made square-cut boxer brief that helps to introduce guys to underwear that looks and feels amazing.
Cheap 3 packs as are good as the expensive stuff.
We have all heard the adage, “You get what you pay for” and that definitely extends to underwear. A cheap pair of underwear is something you don’t want to wish upon your worst enemy. Poorly designed and constructed underwear rides up, bunches, and crushes your goods – making your day a miserable experience as you’re continually adjusting your underwear and pulling at your junk in public.
It’s annoying, embarrassing, and uncomfortable for everyone to witness – let alone for the guy living it.
On the other hand, a well-made pair of underwear sits well on your body and keeps everything in its place. You feel better throughout the day, and you’re not distracted or embarrassed when you have to adjust your underwear – because you don’t need to be.
Nobody cares about your underwear.
This is false reasoning that the guys who wear ugly or ill-fitting underwear tell themselves to justify wearing their threadbare and stained underwear. But we all know that’s not true. Guys check out other guys to see what they’re wearing – from the shoes to clothes to the underwear underneath it all. They may do this for fashion pointers or to satisfy their curiosity – but our studies indicate that guys do in fact want to see what other guys are wearing under it all. So remember that the next time you’ve got your underwear drawer open and you’re deciding what to wear.
Commando is better.
Commando is gross. You sweat, you perspire, and you get stinky. Not to mention the sensation of walking around without any underwear can cause arousal. Do you really want to be walking around like Quasimodo, all hunched over so that other people can’t see your bulging crotch?
Underwear serves a function. It keeps you contained and reduces the risk of a spontaneous erection, provides fabric for moisture absorption, and helps to keep odors to a minimum.
(Real) Men don’t care about underwear.
There was a book released in the 1990s that said, “Real men don’t eat quiche” – and its absurdness is only matched by the comment, “Real men don’t care about underwear.”
Guys love to look sexy – and a good-looking pair of underwear is the foundation to a guy’s outfit. It’s the first thing they put on, and the last thing they take off. It’s there to get them through the day without having to adjust their crotch or hide a spontaneous erection, and when a guy has on a pair of underwear that they enjoy wearing, they feel happier and more content.
Whoever said real men don’t care about underwear has never wore a pair of Garçon Model underwear – our underwear is made from a microfibre that keeps you comfortable and dry all day long. If you’re not 100% happy with your underwear, we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure you’re happy with your Garçon Model underwear.
