Aside from the “Will I?” or “Won’t I” at the end of the night, most of the nervousness about going on a date comes from choosing the right outfit and hoping the other person likes it. What you wear can make or break the date, and ultimately decide the outcome, but there is more to think about than just what’s on the outside. After all, underwear is the first thing you put on and perhaps the only thing you’ll be wearing later, so when it comes to men’s date night underwear it’s important to choose a money style that not only makes your body look like a million bucks, but also feel that way.
The ladies have it easy–they slip into a frilly, lacy getup and it’s automatically sexy. For guys, not so much.
Comfort is key. Nothing eats away at your self-confidence more than a nagging wedgie. If you plan to score a home run, what you need is men’s date night underwear that is equal parts style and substance. Something that makes your body look great with the comfort to make your ego look better.
We’ve put together a selection of men’s date night underwear for just about every man. For the dudes that like it colorful, to those that need a boost in front–we have you covered.
A dash of bold, bright color looks great on every body, and is bound to get you noticed no matter what style you’re wearing. The Calvin Klein Underwear X Micro Low Rise Trunk always ranks high for us, as it provides a sleek, body-defining fit with an unforgettable pop of color. It’s made from a super stretchy 90% nylon, 10% elastane microfiber that feels luxuriously soft, so these are a real treat to wear and touch.
Andrew Christian Show It Low Profile Brief, $23
Profile enhancing underwear is the guy’s version of a push-up bra, and a great way to boost your finest assets as well as your confidence, as long as you follow one simple rule: less is more. Your big bulge may warrant a double-take, but if it’s not believable, the joke is on you, so go with a style that features a pouch that creates more natural looking enhancement, like the Andrew Christian Show It Low Profile Brief. The pouch features a hidden U-shaped inner cup that lifts and defines your package, adding up to an inch of natural-looking bulge. It’s made from a soft 90% cotton, 10% spandex stretch cotton and features contrast piping along the legs and pouch for a touch of subtle detail.
C-IN2 Pop Stripes Sport Brief, $24
Feel free to show your love of color with a pair of underwear that features a pattern or stripes, but keep it classy. Sponge Bob is a no, but the C-IN2 Pop Stripes Sport Brief is a definite yes. They’re decked out in a variety differently-hued stripes that are always in style. Made from soft, 100% cotton fabric, these fit just like classic low-rise briefs with higher cut leg openings for a sexier spin.
If you’re a “sporty meets sexy” kind of guy, and would feel more at home in a more athletically-inspired style but don’t want to go all-out in a jockstrap, there’s good news. It’s called the Air Jock, and it’s the hybrid of a brief and a jockstrap. The brand offers several styles of Air Jock, but our favorite of the moment is the Redondo Air Jock, made from soft, stretch cotton and featuring brightly colored contrast trim around the legs and rear.
A touch of luxury is always a major turn-on, especially when it comes to underwear. The classic 2ixst Tux Contour Pouch Brief is like formal wear for down there. It’s made from a super luxe 94% Tencel, 6% spandex fabric that feels like silk against your skin, and features satin stripes running down the sides. Don these duds, and it’s like saying, ‘Look baby, I got all dressed up for you.”
Diesel Underdenim Trunk, $28
They’re full coverage, but so cool! The minute your pants come off, you’ll hear “they look like jeans!” and the fun will begin. The Diesel Underdenim Trunk is made from a cotton blend fabric (57% cotton, 38% polyester, 5% elastane) that is treated to look like denim, but feels soft against your skin. The waistband is stitched to mimic the seams on a pair of jeans, and though the trunk fit is basic, these definitely stand out on the stylish side.
