    Actor Jude Law caused quite a stir when he was shot wearing tighty whities on a beach while filming Sky Atlantic's New Pope.
    Should men his age (46) be seen in such skimpy male briefs, the world asked. Should ANY man wear something so small, so white - so sexy?
    The Sun newspaper in the UK had a great take on the uproar, asking ordinary blokes to strip down to white micro underpants to show how they look on real men…

    The internet is still awash with reaction to the revelation that some men, yes, do choose to wear mini briefs under their clothes, or dare we say it, male bikini briefs on the beach! Seems some chaps want them banned altogether

    Deadgoodundies.com, specialists in men's underwear and swimwear since 2007, has, of course, a veritable trunk full of teeny tiny men's underwear and swimwear, in white and dozens of other colours, should the mood take you. Watch for white swimwear with a lining to help maintain whiteness when wet (though total opacity is not always guaranteed!) and pure white micro underpants are always popular at DGU, so there are plenty of options.

    Deadgoodundies.com is again a finalist in the Underwearnewsbriefs.com 2019 Reader Awards launched this week. Fans are invited to vote for DGU in the men's underwear and swimwear E-commerce category before 3rd April: https://www.underwearnewsbriefs.com/2019/03/2018-reader-awards-vote-for-your-favorite/

    A trio of top sellers on the website have also made it to product award shortlists this year. For starters there's Ergowear's new X3D Modal bikini brief, which comes in Dusk pink, olive green or black at £16.00.

    Another Ergowear finalist is the brand's longer Max Mesh Midcut in the Boxer Brief category – in four colours including the starring shade, Boiling, at £28.00 a pair.

    And in the Pouch category there's Obviously for Men's PrimeMan AnatoMAX Brief, £23.00 in 11 colours (nine plain, two stripes) including this Midnight blue, probably because the design offers not just ample room up front but flexible leg openings suitable for more muscular thighs.

    Underwearnewsbriefs is a hugely popular blog about men's underwear which features a monthly update on international trends from a UK viewpoint – from Deadgoodundies.com of course…

    There's always a moment of panic when one of DGU's favourite brands announces it's about to discontinue a best seller with a very loyal following

    Sloggi have decided there will be no more Sloggi Basic Tanga briefs – but Deadgoodundies' customers don't have to worry, because DGU has bought up the last remaining stock.

    "There's enough in our last order to keep Sloggi Basic Tanga fans happy for some time," says website founder Adam Davies. "We will continue, as always, to sell these Sloggi men's briefs in a twinpack containing two black tangas for £17.00. We believe our supplies will last several months, but Deadgoodundies will gradually become the only place left to buy these brilliant gents' underpants."

    The Sloggi brand is a cornerstone in the world of men's underwear, especially in online sales with retail specialists like Deadgoodundies.com.

    "Some guys will only wear Sloggi men's briefs, and some of them prefer the Sloggi Basic Tanga above all other styles. This is no surprise because the design is wonderful, washable and wearable – and long lasting in 96% cotton and 4% elastane. We have sold the two pack for many years, originally also in white, but that was discontinued a few years ago. So now the black duo is unique," Adam explains.

    "So, if you see 'Sloggi Basic Tanga discontinued' anywhere come straight to Deadgoodundies.com because the very last remaining stock will be with us," he adds.
    There are of course other Sloggi for Men briefs offered by DGU that might fit the bill for fans of men's mini briefs in stretch cotton. But there are classic alternatives from other brands that Basic Tanga fans might want to test for the sadly inevitable day there are no more… or they fancy an alternative colour micro slip sometime.

    Why is Sloggi's Basic Tanga so popular? Full cover and maximum room to manoeuvre – men like the cool, airy feel of a tanga with the super high leg shape. From behind it has the look of a male brief but with a unique shape that's great for suit or sport, gym or rest. The Sloggi Basic Tanga is men's underwear that gents are happy to wear again and again – and again.

    HOM's Classic Tanga (£18.00 per pair in white, black, navy or grey) is made from 65% cotton, 22% modal, 13% elastane.

    Doreanse has two tanga options, both in 45% cotton, 45% modal, 10% Lycra - the Doreanse 1233 Bikini Brief or the Doreanse 1331 Bikini Brief, each £10.00 a pair in black or white.

    Fashion brands like Modus Vivendi, Olaf Benz and Manstore, and anatomical designs from Ergowear and Obviously for Men, also offer the familiar tanga shape – with good pouch and bum cover, and an elastic waistband that also forms the side straps, without any additional fabric – in seasonal collections.

    As Adam says: "A tanga can be for sport, leisure or pleasure, in cotton, silky microfibre, plain colours or prints. Our customers like the combination of support and freedom of movement. And this style of brief, especially the Sloggi Basic Tanga, suits everyone, just make sure you buy the right waist size so the fit is snug but doesn't pinch any flesh!"

    hom classic tanga brief alternative

    Need an alternative for when the Sloggi tangas finally run out for good? Or a different colour for special occasions? HOM's Classic Tanga (£18.00) comes in white, black, navy or grey in a wonderfully stretchy cotton modal.

    The Sloggi tanga's credentials are perfect – the design comes in an Oeko-Tex fabric with FREEF!T X-MOVE Lycra which is medically tested as well as for harmful substances. The brief comes in sizes XS-XL for waist sizes 30-38 (check the Deadgoodundies size guide before buying). They can be washed at 60C and tumble dried on a low temperature.

    DGU customer reviews for the Sloggi Tanga Brief speak for themselves:

    "Amazingly comfortable"

    "One of my all-time favourites"

    "By far the most well fitted brief I wear"

    "Picked these up for the gym but they are superb for everyday wear as well"

    One of the biggest questions in male fashion has one of those answers that includes the word 'depends'…

    The key to finding the best comfortable and supportive underwear is to wear the right size, so says Deadgoodundies.com partner Jane Garner.

    "There are two areas crucial to comfort – the waistband and pouch. If either of those is too tight, the wearer is never going to enjoy wearing those particular underpants."

    But the question of comfort goes much further for Jane: "Men might want the feel of classic cotton boxers or prefer a fine fabric – but still want the right support. Many men have discovered the huge difference in fit and support provided by ergonomic or sporty male underwear from the likes of Ergowear, Obviously for Men, Sloggi and Comfyballs. Others will hunt down seamless underwear or underpants with no internal labels to maximise their comfort level.

    "DGU does not give medical advice, but several customers have been pointed our way by doctors to try the ultra-supportive pouch designs from Ergowear as a form of hernia support underwear.”

    How to choose men’s underwear

    The basic rules for choosing men’s support underwear include opting for a lined pouch, styles with an elastic hoop or additional trim around the pouch, or a clever internal pouch structure created especially to keep genitals encased and supported without restriction or overheating.

    As Jane adds: "Classic and fashion lines can work well as men's support underwear – here we are talking underpants because there is no all in one support underwear on DGU. The most comfortable boxer briefs are a very personal choice – some men prefer the feel of a nest of substantial fabric for the gusset and pouch, others enjoy the more natural positioning of lift-and-separate designs, and others will want the versatility of undies created to allow a chap to dress up, down or to the side in the same pouch.

    "Men who are well endowed often complain they can't find undershorts and briefs that provide sufficient capacity and cover, but DGU has the answer, not least in Obviously for Men's AnatoMAX designs which cater well for big boys."

    Jane advises any man looking for supportive underwear to consider these factors first: (a) how much support do you need (b) does that require a specialised pouch or will a standard lined pouch work for you (c) what fabric do you prefer to wear and (d) which style of underwear will keep you feeling most comfortable?

    "Right size, right shape, right support equals comfort," she concludes.

    Nobody will ever know how many men really wear thong underwear – because 99% of them will never tell!

    Thongs, also known as strings or g-strings (even T-strings), have been a best-selling category at Deadgoodundies.com since the online specialists launched in 2007 – but they're still one of the best-kept secrets in men's underwear, says DGU founder Adam Davies.

    "There are many misconceptions when it comes to thongs for men," smiles Adam, who goes on to answer some key questions DGU is asked over and over again.

    Q: What is a thong? And what is the difference between a thong and a male string?

    A: A thong or string is men's underwear with a pouch at the front and a fine piece of fabric that sits between the buttocks at the back. DGU's differential is that a thong tends to have a wider thong back, a string or g-string has a much finer back.

    Q: G-string or T-string?

    A: G is any very narrow back, while a T-string back looks like a capital T, and sometimes the vertical element of the T adjusts along the horizontal waistband.

    Q: Are men’s thongs comfortable?

    A: This is the most popular question (and one which makes guys wince). Of course they can be comfy – if not, why would millions of men around the world suffer wearing minimalist underwear when they could wear micro briefs or a jockstrap instead?

    Q: How do I pick the right thong?

    A: Choose carefully… Be sure to check the size guide for each brand and if in doubt, go up a size. Take note of the pouch design – is it an enhancing front or just shaped to provide support? Consider the look from behind and the depth of waistband, too, as many male underwear fashion collections create styles with dipped backs, or add jewellery effects like chains linking the thong back and waistband.

    Q: Who sells men's thongs and can I buy string underwear in private?

    A: DGU and yes! Deadgoodundies has for many years been the go-to website for men's underwear, especially thongs which are scarce on the high street and getting scarcer online as well. Until four years ago thongs were always Deadgoodundies' top sellers, then briefs made a comeback. Thongs and strings are still very much in demand and the main reason DGU doesn't sell as many now is that men's fashion underwear collections don't feature so many these days. And for total privacy… DGU always ships in completely plain parcels so nobody knows what's inside.

    Q: I'm not sure I could wear thong underwear so what's the alternative?

    A: Some high cut male briefs and micro slips have almost as little fabric as string underwear for men – check out the back view on DGU's product pictures and see which cut will most flatter your body shape and backside. A lot of men who want minimal underwear but also good cover and security opt for a tanga. These have a pouch front, bum cover at the back, but no fabric round the sides, and often a sporty flat waistband that sits in a flattering horizontal position.

    Q: Who really wears thongs for men?

    A: You'd be surprised – and we're not giving away too much. But men who live and work in the hottest climates, get hot while exercising or want to stay cool on holiday will wear thongs. Many of the male strings stocked on DGU are so fine they are the next best thing to wearing nothing, without the risks associated with going commando. A man's choice of thong or string is totally personal when it comes to fit, shape, colour, fabric and look. Men who love thongs won't give them up for anything.

    Q: Any special advice for thong wearers?

    A: Buy yourself one of those net washbags and keep thongs separate in the wash, or wash them by hand. Some of the male lingerie lace thongs have to be washed very carefully, so check the care instructions. Definitely wear once, wash once because of the intimate fit!
