Everybody jokes about tightie whities, even though most men secretly have a pair. Think about it: Homer Simpson, Bob Belcher, and Peter Griffin all wear white briefs under their humdrum clothes. Thus, tightie whities are for men who just don’t care how they look — at least, that’s what you’re made to believe. If you’re still doing the tightie whitie thing, this is how you do it right.
Part two of Jerrad Matthew’s feature on white underwear gets model Joshua DuBois in 8 different pairs of fashionable tightie whities. Almost every underwear brand has their version of a classic white brief. As much as men stray from white, tightie whities are still the iconic men’s underwear. Pair it with a leather jacket, denim jeans, and a solid white tee and you’re James Dean. But no one thinks “James Dean” when they think “tightie whities.”
When tightie whities are done right, they have a body-contouring fit, a snug rear, and a flattering pouch design. You want to play up the simplicity of your underwear choice, not cheapen it.
