Athletic Jockstraps For Everyday Wear

The jockstrap is the most workout-specific cut of men’s underwear there is. It’s engineered for guys to wear when they’re exercising, and so some brands don’t even make jockstraps under the logic that since their use is so specific, the market will be too small.

Recent sales trends show that that’s not true, and that some men are starting to wear jockstraps all day long, not just at the gym. It seems that if there is a quality product, guys will respond positively to it. At least, that’s the experience that the Jack Adams brand has had.

“Men are definitely feeling more comfortable buying jockstraps,” Julian Hobson, who handles business development at Jack Adams told The Underwear Expert. “We started coming out with a few jockstraps as part of our lineup and sales started to climb. So we decided to take advantage of the opportunity, and we dedicated ourselves to the cut with the Bodyflex Mesh Jockstrap.”

“We already had sort of defined ourselves by the design of our pouch as being the brand that people come to because they know it’s going to be comfortable. We make something really functional — a jockstrap that could be worn underneath a suit to work because it’s comfortable. A guy could go to the gym after if they want, but with us it’s no longer purely about designing for the gym,” Hobson said.

A jockstrap delivers multiple benefits to its wearer: it doesn’t cover the legs at all, often provides a highly-engineered pouch, and allows for multidirectional access and mobility.

Other brands are beginning to get in on the act, too. C-In2’s new Grip line has a jockstrap that is both highly athletic and comfortable enough to imagine wearing to the office. And 2(x)ist recently added a jockstrap to their (X)treme collection.

The growing popularity of  jockstraps blending the line between fashion and athletics means that more and more men are wearing the stylish and comfortable underwear daily and not just to the gym, giving new meaning to the term “desk jockey.”

    I am a retired office worker and now work on my farm. I am older and am very active all day and
    have started wearing a  jock all day. A jock really helps hold everything in place. With all the new
    styles of jocks I  have found that they are way more comfortable than boxers. The one thing I have 
    found is buy a good one and get one that fits. My wife also likes the way I look in one.

    As an athletic man, I appreciate the support and fit. I am 6ft 160lbs and have a narrow waist considering the size of my thighs—the jock allows me to fit my unders to my waist, without concern for the leg opening. An added bonus is that my wife thinks they look good. A favorite is the C-in2 “H-A-R-D” line, but the 2xist “sliq” mesh is fantastic as well.
