Green is probably not the most common color in your underwear drawer. But if you’re looking to bring some more variety to your collection, green underwear is one of the safest bets. It doesn’t make as wild a statement as red and is more surprising than blue could ever hope to be. And if you’re looking to avoid getting pinched on Saint Patrick’s Day, green underwear is even more of a must-have. Not to mention, it also gives you a good excuse to show off your underwear.
Model Eddie Eduardo is a redheaded Man Of Matinee and wears two styles of green underwear in our exclusive photoshoot: trunks and boxer briefs. They may be the two underwear styles that cover the most skin, but this photo series goes to show that green has enough charm to register its own kind of sex appeal. Whether it’s a darker forest green or a neon shade of lime, it still comes off as an unexpected color choice. That alone is enough to warrant a double-take. But with these featured pairs, you also get modern, masculine cuts. Combine the two and you’re dressed like a man with an above-average fashion sense.
Forest green underwear is a little harder to come by in today’s men’s underwear market. You’re more likely to find brighter or neutral shades – especially in spring. But one thing darker shades of green have going for them is that they’re more masculine. A man who wears green underwear clearly put some thought into his underwear choice – more thought than would go into a blue pair, easily the most common color for men’s underwear. Because of that, opting for a dark green color paints you to be a man with a more mature sense of style.
Lighter shades of green, especially neon, can come off two ways: cute or athletic. Some pairs manage to be both. It all depends on the underwear’s cut. Designs with bright colors and casual silhouettes go further into cute territory. They’re cut to be somewhat discrete, yet brightly colored to draw attention to your lower regions. Neon green boxer briefs do this best.
Sporty underwear styles almost play down bright green colors. Athletic underwear is expected to be bright, and because of that, neon green colors look more at home on performance underwear. Those pairs add a touch of masculinity to an otherwise flirtatious color but still earn a man some style points for mixing it up with a less conventional color.
