Purple underwear is a tricky thing. If it’s too bright, you end up looking like Barney and if it’s too dark, you end up looking like an eggplant. That said, purple is an extraordinary color that deserves to be in your underwear drawer. When made right and worn right, it can scream sophistication and elegance without crossing over into feminine territory, especially when worn under downright masculine colors like dark grey, hunter green and khaki.
Brands aren’t just dousing their underwear in shades of aubergine and calling it a day either. We’re increasingly seeing underwear brands from across the globe play with fun designs and fades on their purple underwear, showcasing the regal color like never before. The below series features purple underwear for men who truly want to make a statement.
