Can you believe the fall season (in NYC) is almost here? We hope you had a great summer! Before you start thinking about autumn foliage, let’s take a look at the month of August which brought us some exciting new mens underwear releases. From gold-button boxer briefs to colorful briefs with bold accents, new mens underwear releases in August had something for both the high-end consumer and the everyday customer. Among the vivid colors for mens underwear that were released in August, blue was a huge hit. It was featured in a variety of underwear as a color block, accent, waistband and all-over color. Shades we saw were royal blue, moony blue and brilliant blue. Shimmering metallic waistbands with original designs became the crowning jewel for many updated collections as well. And! Some of the most stylish prints and color combinations for mens underwear were vintage inspired.
Overall, we noticed an exciting new variety of looks that will make you feel youthful and sexy. Check out some of the best new color updates, original designs and latest ranges of smooth fabrics for mens underwear. Let us know which is your favorite?
