Before you write off the average white brief as a blank slate of boring, take a look at Jerrad Matthew’s latest exclusive shoot for The Underwear Expert. Model Kai Braden is back wearing pairs of white briefs with above-average style. What’s their saving grace? Pops of contrasting color on the waistband, and in some cases, some nifty accent stitching.
When men hear “tightie whitie” they normally picture a solid piece of white fabric that fits a little too loose, and could use a healthy dose of bleach. Even so, you’d be hard-pressed to find something fresher than a white brief. Each of the pairs Kai models in the photoshoot below still lets the crisp clean appeal of a white brief come through, but it’s those accented waistbands that let the white seem stylishly stark rather than painfully boring.
Each white brief Kai models is unassuming with the exception of one (we’re looking at you , Andrew Christian). Still, each one has a casual charm to it that’s hard to miss. 2eros and Bluebuck both design their featured white briefs with navy waistbands to give them a regal touch. The 2eros Black Label Brief is the classiest white brief in sight with its bold shimmering navy. Bluebuck keeps it more reserved with not just the waistband, but navy accent stitching.
Baskit and Lunch opt for orange and purple, respectively, and use their pops of color in more minimal ways. But as minimal as they are, it only helps what color there is stand out even more. There is no missing the orange stripes and brand name on Baskit’s Urban Brief. And Kai’s Packed Lunch Brief has the Australian brand’s trademark shade of purple handsomely off-center to the right.
Andrew Christian still can’t help but be loud and cut in a sexy way. Leave it to Andrew Christian to make a “classic” white brief that’s still going to get plenty of attention. Their featured pair has a rainbow waistband and, of course, an enhancing pouch.
