Earlier this spring the provocative underwear / male fashion line, Modus Vivendi, released their new bathing suit line.
While I’m not in any kind of shape to think about bathing suits, many will be hitting the beaches and pools regularly when Memorial Day Weekend officially kicks off the 2016 summer season. Modus Vivendi Neon line includes briefs, Brazil cut boxers, boxer briefs and boxer shorts in three vibrant colors including neon aqua, neon fuchsia and neon yellow.
I’ll just live vicariously through the images. Below are some of my favorites. All the photos were taken in Northern Greece and featured model, Sotiris Thomaidis by P2Photography. You can see the full line of the 2016 swimwear collection here and you can purchase these items in the US at International Jock.
If you like what you see you may also want to check out their towel line. I’ll settle for appreciating the ad campaign like this seductive photo.
Modus Vivendi is one of my favorite design labels for underwear, swimwear and accessories. The European label has been on a tear lately introducing a series of new collections this year and along with those products come tantalizing photos. Recognizing the appeal of their campaigns Modus Vivendi has also released videos of some of their favorite photo shoots like the one I’ve included from their new “Hole Line” which was shot in the streets of Madrid by Joan Crisol.

Back in December I wrote a post and included an infographic about gay men’s underwear preferences that had been created and shared by The Underwear Expert blog, which you can read here.
Earlier this month HuffingtonPost published an article after teaming up with AskMen who surveyed 650 men about their underwear preferences. Below is the infographic that they compiled based on their research.
Interestingly, there was a difference in preference with The Underwear Expert blog that focused on gay men sharing that they preferred briefs (27%) and boxer briefs (22%) to the AskMen / HuffingtonPost survey which found that the overwhelming number of men buy boxer briefs (58%).

The Museum of Fine Arts Boston has a new exhibit that opened this past weekend that you may want to check out called #techstyle.
The exhibit is about technology innovations that are inspiring designers, influencing the future of fashion and the way people interacting with their clothing. The exhibition draws on the MFA’s collection of contemporary fashion and accessories, and features key pieces from innovators in the field including a digitally-printed dress from Alexander McQueen’s Plato’s Atlantis collection (Spring/Summer 2010/2011) and Iris van Herpen’s 3-D printed dress (2013) produced in collaboration with MIT designer and assistant professor Neri Oxman. You will experience the cutting edge of hi-tech fashion with special commissions created by CuteCircuit, Hussein Chalayan, Kate Goldsworthy, and Somerville-based Nervous System.
More information about #techstyle, here.
For those who live in Boston and other cold climates, the scarf is a perfect winter accessory. While there are many ways to tie a scarf, below are some popular techniques seen in menswear today. Infographic below comes from tie-a-tie.net.

Model Garrett Westton wearing Garçon Model underwear – Photo by Travis Lane
Last week I was sent a series of photos of Garçon Model’s latest collection, Elite Sport trunk collection, that was released just before the holiday season last year. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to post the photo above of Garçon Model, Garrett Westton, or to talk about one of my favorite brands of underwear.
The Garçon Model underwear is made from bamboo, which is not only eco-friendly but also incredibly soft and breathable (in other words it keeps your bits drier and feeling fresher). The Underwear expert wrote a post about moisture-wicking underwear like Garçon Model’s Elite Sport a few years ago, here.

“We edited down to the essentials, then added a hint of athletic accents and modern colors that work in and out of the gym.” – Garçon Model.
The Underwear Expert Blog asked their handsome style report, Jared North, to try on a variety of underwear types and colors based on traditions from different countries. Most of these traditions are meant to bring you either success, health or a better love life in the New Year. Enjoy the video and let me know which tradition you’ll be following when you slip on your underwear Thursday night.
