Performance Brief: Andrew Christian’s Dry and Naked Prevails!

Keeping up to date on underwear news is one of our favorite jobs here at So naturally when we ran across this New York Times article by Andrew Newman we were seriously intrigued.

Dry and Naked Brief

Dry and Naked Brief

A triathlete (you probably know one of these hardcore masochists yourself) was given the daunting task of figuring out what underwear performs the best under extreme circumstances (see triathlete).  The triathlete Rick Krupa tried out these top underwear brands:  Andrew Christian, Jockey, Brooks, Under Armour, and Asics.  The conclusion: Andrew Christian’s  Dry and Naked briefs provided the most moisture wicking, support, and overall comfort when compared to other national brands.  How’s that for an endorsement? See the report after the jump.

Recording the History of Men’s Underwear

Bill Martin (Left) and Robert Clark (Right) show the top selling item at Skiviez and other products

Skiviez based in Richmond, Virginia, has agreed to a yearly contribution to the Valentine Richmond History Center. Skiviez will provide its bestselling item each year to give a historical record of men’s underwear trends. The 2009 top selling underwear was the 2(x)ist Contour Pouch Brief in white.

Robert Clark, president and CEO of Skiviez, and William “Bill” Martin, director of the Valentine, negotiated the deal with the vision of the two organizations continually working together to document Richmond’s clothing history.

With the help of Skiviez’ yearly contribution, future generations will be able to research men’s underwear trends as well as the part that Richmond, Virginia played in them.

According to Bill Martin, “this could over time become an important collection. If for the next 20 years we add to this collection, it would be a major resource for fashion historians.”
