From practical fig leaves to fashion underwear
Men's underwear and the upper thigh taboo
All types of men's underwear, including boxer briefs, briefs and boxer shorts, have always been appreciated by their functional aspect. Long before Calvin Klein, Dolce Gabbana, Diesel, Armani or even Pull-In, the male lingerie is made above all for coverage. From braies made by Gallics to codpieces created in the Middle Ages, men's underwear had to cover the legs, especially the thighs. Then came the time of innovations: inspired by long boxer shorts worn by pugilists, boxer briefs have been designed. They are created to replace heavy waistbands by elastics. As for men's briefs, they appeared later and are made to be the sexist type. Briefs are inspired from Bikini swimwear on our beautiful beach of the Côte d'Azur.
Men's underwear and innovations.
Once the upper thigh taboo no longer exists, boxer shorts, briefs and boxer briefs are sold to everywhere. From then on, men's underwear began its improvement in design and its innovations. For convenience (strictly speaking), the underwear with opening was created. In 1947, Eminence designed this famous 'kangaroo' brief with a covered front opening, inspired from the 'gauchos' of the Pampas. Nowadays, the brief is already perfectly mastered by brands like Sloggi, Mariner, DIM, Athena and Calvin Klein. Today, the opening also exists on briefs, boxer briefs and boxer shorts. Whether it is a horizontal or a vertical opening, with a simple slit or some buttons, you can find all styles at Solendro.com. At the same time, comfort is an important source of innovation for men's underwear. For example, HOM created the first brief and boxer brief made with soft shell. These boxer briefs and briefs have a double-layered front opening, which provides best support. Moreover, new fabrics have been added to men's underwear in order to meet the individual needs of each customer. HOM has introduced its underwear made of gauze, Eminence the breathable mesh fabric, Pull-In the lycra fashion boxer brief. Now we can see more than a dozen of fabrics, such as modal, bamboo, cotton (especially organic cotton), elastane, nylon microfiber, polyester, viscose, etc.
