Straight Off the Runway Undies: Retro Edition

by Michael Kleinmann

Alright all you fashionistos, here is the underwear article you’ve been waiting for (and by “straight off the runway,” ps,  we’re not talking about uber-expensive designer underwear–you can read all about expensive underwear here). No, instead it’s a look at our favorite trends from the men’s spring/summer 2012 collections and how they’re designs are finally popping up all over our favorite styles of men’s underwear.

The spring shows saw retro 50s backyard barbecue-inspired kitschy prints and plaids and primary colors from designers like Prada, D&G and Etro and now the designs are finally yours for the cheap in a variety of underwear styles from Calvin Klein, Diesel, and more. Where underwear used to exist in a parallel design universe to mainstream fashion, we’re definitely seeing crossover become more common, and aren’t you glad?! Couture underwear!

Check out this gallery of our favorite looks from the spring and summer 2012 collections and the super spiffy underwear that are starting to adopt their designs.
