Even men who prefer a classic aesthetic struggle to find the right pairs of white underwear. Nowadays most men opt out of white underwear for one simple reason: it doesn’t stay white. Beyond that, white underwear is simply too boring for the more fashion-conscious man. But other men, like almost all of our fathers, have been supported by white underwear all their lives. Their white underwear comes in a plastic bag, and probably from the same place they buy their groceries. But as our exclusive photoshoot by Jerrad Matthew shows, “tightie” and “whitie” can be right on the money.
Some brands see a pair of white underwear and throw in some contrasts, for fashion’s sake. Milkman and JM both add what else but black, white’s perfect compliment. Milkman’s design brings a classic white brief to the 21st century with black seams and a black waistband. The result is a casual everyday basic, but with a distinct sense of style. JM gets a little trendier with a black waistband flanked with shimmery silver. But the most contemporary pair of white underwear comes from Vanwolff. Their Timber Brief in white has a stylishly light grey waistband and an asymmetrical black trim on the pouch.
