Stripes have been viewed consistently throughout fashion trends as a way to look distinguished, sharp, elegant and well styled. Stripes are available in all different colors and sizes and also go in different directions. The options are almost limitless. Why should this be any different for your chosen underwear styles? In this exclusive underwear photoshoot shot by Jerrad Matthew for The Underwear Expert, we delve into trending styles with subtle stripes.
Model Firat Bayhan poses in these five pairs of underwear to show off the elegant aesthetic achieved by adding some stripes to your wardrobe. The urban background offers a bright blue sky and light grayish white concrete to show off each individual style. Shades of blue and gray are seen throughout these images as staple colors used by the designers to make the sleek cool vibe of the stripes come alive. Deep blues, grays and blacks are the standard colors for formal attire. Formal attire has always been deemed to look elegant, sharp and distinguished. Diesel, Clever and Icebreaker have all incorporated this idea into their underwear styles. Whereas Drake & Hutch and Male Power present a more new aged twist by using pastel blue and purple.
Stripes can also accentuate one feature and hide another. Clever and Male Power use stripes extend out with the pouch, making your package look a bit larger than it did before. Diesel, Icebreaker and Drake & Hutch chose horizontal stripes that have a more slimming look. Stripes can be all different sizes and colors, and they can also go in different directions. Subtle stripes incorporate all of those attribute, but they’re just a little harder to see. The closer someone gets to the underwear, the more clear the stripes are. It’s almost as if it’s saying, “Yes, I’m toned down, but I’m so elegant underneath.”
Boxer briefs and briefs were both represented in this photoshoot. The supportive nature of contoured pouches will keep you feeling comfortable, and the body-hugging fit will avoid bunching underneath your dress pants.
