David Beckham: Underwear Model of the Century?


Underwear Model of the Century

When you look back at the last 100 years, does David Beckham’s work in the underwear industry trump that of every other working underwear model? Well, if you are designer Tommy Hilfiger, it sure does.

One evening, Hilfiger was stopped by a reporter for TMZ who was wearing a boxer from Hilfiger’s underwear line. The reporter asked Hilfiger if he had the body to be an underwear model. “I have seen all kinds of underwear models, but we all wish we look like David Beckham at the end of the day. He is like the underwear model of the century,” he said in the interviewer in a playful tone.

This accolade comes unbiased since Beckham has worked for such competitors as Emporio Armani and H&M. Most recently, the soccer player turned underwear mogul appeared in a cheeky promotion for his latest David Beckham Bodywear collection for H&M. In the promotion, Beckham loses his underwear trying to get into a photo shoot.

In a world with Philip Fusco, Colby Melvin, and Garrett Neff, do you agree with Hilfiger? Is David Beckham the model of the century? Check out his work in the gallery below, then sound off in the comments or by tweeting @underwearexpert.
