men’s underwear

It’s time for The Lingerie Addict’s brief annual foray into the world of men’s underwear. While TLA is a fashion blog more or less written with women in mind, when I see a great pair of knickers for dudes, that little detail won’t stop me from writing about them here. In a word (or three actually), I love Menagerie. Though lace was historically a part of men and women’s dress […]

Here in San Francisco, we just wrapped up the Folsom Street Fair, an annual leather/fetish event. It’s one of many events I work for Dark Garden and it has… well, it has a lot of distinctions, but in particular, it’s the one day of the year where I get to talk to and work with many men (or those who were assigned as such at birth) who want to try […]

If you identify as genderqueer, genderfluid, bigender, or any of the terms that mean “not exactly male or female”, you’ve probably experienced dysphoria at some point. Dysphoria is the sensation of feeling like something is wrong or unsettling about your body, and for people who are trans or genderqueer, it can be a big deal. Luckily, your underwear can help.

And then — call it an internal philosophical debate, or call it writer’s procrastination — I spent […]

For many people, this time of year is one of nostalgia, sentiment, and reaching out — to family, friends, and those less fortunate. November and December are typically the biggest months of the year for charities and nonprofit organizations, as individuals reflect on the past year’s highs and lows, and attempt to pay it forward by donating their time and/or money to people in need. There is no shortage of opportunities […]

But as the fastest growing portion of the menswear market with an expanding selection of cutting edge and innovative styles to choose from, it is safe to say this category is quickly evolving to new levels. Underwear designers are branching out and utilizing unique styling details like print, color, silhouette, fabric, and technology in fresh and clever ways […]

Disclosure: I received this item free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own. “Those pearls go WHERE?!” I thought. I had come face to face with an eight foot poster of a panty-clad woman’s torso. At first glance, the panty seemed like a pretty standard stretch lace affair, but at the same time I was struck with one of those vague what’s-wrong-with-this-picture senses that something was not […]

It’s a common scenario each October: Halloween is suddenly around the corner and you’re looking forward to partaking in some spirited festivities… but you haven’t given much thought to what costume you’ll be wearing, and time is running out! Sound familiar? You can always scavenge the local Halloween shops for an overpriced, sexed-up costume you’ll only wear once, or you can resort to fishing out last year’s ensemble and hope […]
