Product Review: SAXX Underwear

No one has ever summarized a man’s relationship with his underwear as accurately as Garth Algar in “Wayne’s World”:

The relationship between a dude and his underwear is a strange thing. In the past, I’ve had roommates and friends who thought it was funny to keep a pair of underwear so long, they (the undies) gradually begin to degrade over time, until certain areas that once provided support were completely gaped open, leaving nothing to the imagination.

Put simply, guys don’t like to buy underwear; it feels weird. I have a pair of plaid boxers from 1999 on right now.

But what if I told you that chicks dig a nice pair of undies on a dude, the way we like sexy lingerie on our ladies? Let me hip you to a little game, in case you didn’t know: briefs and boxers are out. Trunks are in.

When I first became cognizant of trunks, it was like a foreign concept. Was this a legitimate term, or a clever, pachyderm-based play on words?

Regardless, trunks are boss. Even though they are a little “constrictive” at first, they make your bulge look big, like a young Bon Scott.

Don’t you want to accentuate your man hammer? Sure you do, and there’s nothing to feel bad about. But it isn’t just about that.

The SAXX Underwear Wikipedia page goes a little more “balls out” describing the product:

“SAXX Underwear is a men’s underwear company that designs underwear to prevent contact between the scrotum and thighs.”

Arnette Eyewear’s New Video Winter Look Book

Most clothing companies will put together a a PDF (or even worse, physical copy) of a look book to promote their latest styles and products.

But not Arnette. Check out the cool, hypnotic, quick take on an old school delivery method above.

We fell in love with Arnette’s Public Enemy Collection sunglasses. You should too.

  

Product Review: Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver

braun_5

If you grew up in the 1950s when the electric shaver was a relatively new technology, a fringe lifestyle choice, how would you feel about how electrics have evolved?

Because to me, the new Braun Series 5 Electric Shaver had everything I look for; it is the net result of 60-plus years of electric shaving “growth” and adaptation.

To find out, I sat down with a 62-year-old man and we went at each other, point/counterpoint style.

62-Year-Old Man Point:

I tried a standard head-on razor early in my shaving career. My beard is thin (I’ll never be confused with my ape-like college roommate affectionately known as “Brillo-Man”) and my skin, baby soft – in a word, sensitive. My dad had a razor like that, and who doesn’t want to imitate his dad? I found his type of shaving experience painful at best. Put simply, I was scared thanks to a painful experience years ago.

34-Year-Old Man Counterpoint:

The new Braun Series 5 Hi Tech 5090cc men’s shaver with “Intelligent Clean and Charge Station” is a far cry from the brutish “Dark Ages” era of shaving in the ’50s.

I opened the packaging and found a sleek head-on razor. I fired it up immediately and it sounded sophisticated – like the hum of a BMW. When I brought it to the underside of my chin, it was outstanding. The head can be moved 10 degrees in either direction for ease of reaching those hard spots. It was effective and not difficult to manipulate. Nothing to be afraid of, sir.
62-Year-Old Man Point:

I liked how easy it was to disassemble the Braun to clean. Popping the head off for cleaning was simple and it all snapped right back into place after. I was impressed because, back in my prime, you couldn’t take an electric apart to clean it.

34-Year-Old Man Counterpoint:

I told you you’d like it, you baby gorilla!

Shave the Date: Movember 1st Kicks Off Tomorrow

Moustache Season Kicks Off With Clean Shaves All Over the World

The Movember Foundation, a global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health, is getting ready to officially kick off the 2014 “Movember” campaign with tomorrow’s “Shave the Date” promotion. The idea is for men (and women with wicked chin-scratch) to shave clean and start growing a moustache, and only a moustache, for 30 days. Movember moustaches spark conversations and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.

Men and women can join the global movement by signing up at Movember.com. Men will start November 1 — also known as Shave the Date: Movember 1st – clean-shaven and grow only the moustache for 30 days, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their moustache-growing efforts.

Here’s a list of local “Shave the Date” events that you and your moustache can check out on your last day together, as a team, for the next 30 days.

If you’re in LA, check out the Movember and Co. barbershop seen above.
