    Super cyclist Sir Chris Hoy has opened a can of worms with his comments about men wearing Lycra, but not many men realise how much they already wear…

    (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/dont-let-chris-hoy-put-lycra-chaps-exercise-dignity-intact/)

    The word Lycra, a brand name for a type of elastane yarn, is often used as the generic term for brightly coloured, skin tight clothes favoured by cyclists and gym posers.

    Many men shun 'Lycra' clothing, without realising this invisible yarn helps keep their underpants and t-shirts in shape, and is even used in many jeans, as well as some shirts and suits.

    Lycra, like Spandex and other elastanes, is very fine (as a human hair), very strong and will stretch up to five times its original length without snapping. But this elastic is not invincible and when invisible elastane structure within a fabric breaks down (for example in men's swim trunks when it's attacked by swimming pool chemicals) you end up with bald patches – and this is known as 'grinning'.

    As always, Deadgoodundies' men's underwear and swimwear experts are here to help…

    Sir Chris Hoy knows all about the problems of seams and chafing when it comes to riding a bike, so his advice on what to wear under cycling shorts should be heeded.

    Either nothing (if you’re wearing padded cycle shorts they’re designed to be worn solo) or perhaps a pair of merino boxer shorts. Now there’s a thought…

    The difference lies between competitive cyclists clocking up mile after mile at speed and commuters on bikes in need of comfort and temperature control.

    The golden rule, he says, is no seams between your bits and the seat.

    Men's fashion 'hacks' you never knew you needed.

    Reports in America pronounce the success of pre-folded and fused silk pocket squares, collar magnets (to stop flopping, of course) and Tucked Trunks – underpants with sticky blobs inside the waistband to stop a dress shirt from untucking.

    Yup. They exist!

    We love D’Marge, they cut to the chase. This time on how to look good in photographs.

    Not pro model shots, not even selfies (they’re a whole other ballgame) but pix taken by other people. This list is about how not to look like a potato.

    The answer they tell us is practising a winning smile and then looking nonchalantly into the distance AWAY from the camera the minute one gets near you.

    The art, they tell us, was perfected by the likes of Steve McQueen and Marlon Brando.

    So, now you know. Less spud, more superstar.
