Breaking your underwear mold is easier than you think. It can mean trying out a new style. It can mean trying out a new color. And for artsy underwear fans, it can mean throwing on a pair of graphic print underwear. Graphic print underwear brings a boyish sense of fun into the mix. And it does it with artistic, modern, and jovial sensibilities. After all, Earth without “art” is just “eh.”
Graphic print underwear is a simple and effective way to have some fun with your wardrobe. Wear them under your casual clothes, or keep them as a cheeky secret under your business attire. Think of them as the grown-up versions of your childhood underwear. But ditch the pop culture reference and bring in something more interesting.
Most underwear brands that expand their horizons to graphic prints decide to cover the entire pair in them. Others, like Sly and Ken Wroy, use them more as a powerful accent. Our exclusive photoshoot with James Pianka features the Sly Braindead Boxer Brief and the Ken Wroy Tokyo Trunk. Both pairs use a graphic print to bring some playful pizzaz to their designs. Sly’s gory-meets-gorgeous design is a cross between zombies and sugar skulls. Ken Wroy’s is more classy with an upside-down skyline.
If you’d rather go big or go home, then graphic print underwear by Clever, Jor and Muchachomalo might do the trick. The Clever Hipster Boxer and the Jor Hipster Boxer Brief both make it into the photoshoot. And apparently both brands have the same idea of what it means to be a hipster in this day and age. Both pairs feature intricate prints with bicycles and facial hair graphics.
Clever’s Vin Piping Brief is also featured and also includes bicycles in its print. But this pair is all about the 70s, with sunglasses, a VW bus and rainbows thrown into the mix.
Muchachomalo is a brand that’s known for its outlandish and fun graphic prints. The brand’s featured pairs are designed with graphic prints that are more seamless compared to the “Where’s Waldo?” composition that Jor and Clever use. The first has a black-and-white, Native American-inspired print that wraps around the entire boxer.
The other could be taken straight out of a comic book. It’s print is composed of panels and features bright colors that gives onlookers even more reason to stare. Are they reading my underwear, or are they checking me out?
