We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: an Ella Moss bralette for conservatives, liberals and everyone in between.
The last time we saw a David Beckham ad, he was dressed far too inappropriately. As in, he was wearing clothes. Perhaps he heard our complaints, because for his newest bodywear ads for H&M, he’s wearing as little as possible without being called out for NSFW, and they’re totally up our alley.
Lara Stone shows off some fancy dances moves for Calvin Klein‘s newest push-up bra, and surprise! — does it to the oldie-but-goodie jam “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa. There’s really no better way to advertise a push-up bra than to that tune. Of course, the song itself has nothing to do with bras, but who cares? It’s still catchy!
If David Beckham thinks for a second that after months and months of talking about his new underwear collection for H&M that we’re going to believe he was actually embarrassed to watch the commercial for it during the Super Bowl, he’s got another thing coming.
If sex sells, Michael Kors is about to make a lot of money. His new men’s underwear ads aren’t focused so much on putting on a fresh pair of boxer briefs as they are on getting a woman to take them off. (You’re going to have to click here to see just how she’s doing that.)
Remember that lucrative, brand-preserving collection of boxer briefs David Beckham has been working on? It goes on sale in February, and you’ll only be able to buy it from a certain Swedish mega-retailer.
Is it just us, or are dubiously clothed customers inexplicably attracted to US Airways? Just days before last week’s now-infamous “saggy pants” incident, the American airline had an encounter with another scantily clad passenger. The unidentified elderly man was spotted wearing skimpy women’s underwear and not much else on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Phoenix.
Do not be alarmed: What you’re looking at aren’t actually men’s jean shorts, though we can understand why you would think they were. No, these are actually JeanPants, a Japanese-made boxerbrief with a print that makes them look like really, really short and really, really tight cutoffs.
Strange but true: the hottest thing in underwear right now is also the coldest thing in underwear right now. Jockey is introducing a line of underthings called StayCool, made from special, sciencey material designed specifically to keep your pudenda from overheating.
The fine art of going commando under kilts may soon be going the way of the Dodo. According to the Scottish Tartan Authority — the organization in charge of managing the standards of Highland dress which, yes, exists — wearing a kilt sans underwear is not only unhygienic, it’s not even tradition.
This week was full of highs (like all the fun TV news we got on Wednesday — Tim Gunn on Gossip Girl!) and lows (like American Apparel hanging on by a loose financial thread). If you’ve missed any fashion news this week, read on.
Movie and TV characters have come up with creative ways to hide drugs in their clothing — the episode of Gossip Girl in which Jenny sews pills into hollow buttons on a bolero comes to mind. But New York police have discovered a real-life way of hiding drugs and small weapons where the sun doesn’t shine.
We all know a guy or two who doesn’t believe in the concept of doing laundry. “Denim is the original napkin,” they swear. “This doesn’t smell,” they always insist. But when it comes to underwear, cleanliness is essential. The odor, the sweat, the… we’ll spare you. So what’s a laundry-loathing lad to do?
Love skinny jeans but can’t figure out what underwear goes best with them? Robert Pattinson‘s new line of underwear can fix that.
Sorry if we’re confused — is there a rumor floating around that Usher wants to make underwear? Women’s lingerie? With Tamara Mellon? Jimmy Choo‘s Tamara Mellon? What?
Now, as people become more comfortable talking about their beauty secrets and as wearing lingerie out to dinner becomes more popular, companies like Spanx are creating sexier, more wearable lines that allow you to get shaped without having to wear that horrific tan granny panty. There’s lace, there’s silk detailing, and there’s hope for your next date.
The past few seasons have brought the high-waisted silhouette back, much to the dismay of straight men, and much to the confusion of our underwear drawers.
The late Alexander McQueen was never afraid of taking risks, so it comes as no surprise that his final undertaking would be something a little out of the box. As one of his final design feats, McQueen created a men’s underwear collection, slated to launch in June.
