Over the years, jockstraps have taken on a new role in the underwear world. These days they are seen more as a fashion choice, rather than a genitalia protector. The original sports model consisted of only a waistband with a pouch and two elastic straps. The pouch was often fitted to hold a cup for extra protection of your male member. However, these days fashion jocks are less concerned about protecting you and more focused on adoring you. Although they follow the design of the original sports model, they don’t always have the same durability. It’s hard to seek out a fashion jockstrap that is simultaneously aesthetically pleasing and fashionable as well as practical and beneficial. But, there are stylish AND supportive jockstraps out there.
Todd from Waco, TX – Hey Underwear Expert! I’m kind of an old-school guy when it comes to fashion, especially in the underwear department. I have a pretty standard collection of briefs and boxers, but I want to add some new additions. I’ve always liked jockstraps, but some of the “fashion jockstraps” I’ve come across don’t seem to fit well. I find them flimsy and almost cumbersome. I was wondering if there were any jockstraps out there that were a cross between a classic, sturdy jock and a modern, fashion jock? Are there any stylish and supportive jockstraps to choose from? Thanks for the help, and I love your website!
