You should know by now that a solid black pair of underwear is the new essential for your underwear drawer. Black pairs look good without even trying and make surprisingly sophisticated base layers. But not every black pair of underwear wants to be the most well-dressed undie in the room. The best thing about black underwear is that it’s slimming. But the second best thing about black underwear is that any color can be added to it for a little contrast.
Part two of Jerrad Matthew’s feature on black underwear isn’t so much about the underwear as it is about their waistbands. If you’re a man whose slowly been replacing his white basics with black, chances are those black pairs have a touch of color to brighten them up and give them a more everyday appearance. Wood and Mack Weldon are both underwear brand’s that keep the Average Joe in mind, but stop him from being too average. Their black briefs are the only ones modeled by Ajdin Sefer that have a true contrasting waistband.
Both Mack Weldon and Wood use the same waistband across all of their underwear designs. This means Mack Weldon’s True Black Brief still has that thin blue stripe along the elastic for a touch of warmth. But for Wood’s Black Hip Brief, this means something even better. Wood always stitches their name in gold on the waistband. And we hope we don’t have to tell you a black/gold contrast is always a winning look.
