Label To Know Bombas

US underwear brand Bombas has launched in the UK socks pants trunks homelessnessThe US 'essentials' brand, Bombas, has launched in the UK. Bombas was founded in 2013 on the discovery that in the US socks are the number one most requested item at homeless shelters. Co-founders, David Heath and Randy Goldberg wanted to help alleviate this basic need, so spent two and a half years researching and developing a technically-superior sock that would provide comfort and durability for all its wearers.

 
Each and every sock has been designed for its intended purpose; increasing circulation when you’re hot, locking in heat when you’re cold, and keeping you just the right amount of comfortable while you perform, from lightweight yarns and breathable mesh in their performance running range, to reinforced toes and blister tabs in every purpose-performance pair.
 
Bombas's buy-one, give-one model has donated more than 50 million items to those in need. For the UK, Bombas has partnered with leading UK homelessness charity, St. Mungo’s, to distribute product and to gain further understanding of how best to serve the needs of the UK homeless community beyond product donation.
 
TheChicGeek says, "This is a similar model to TOMS' original buy one, give one, but by focusing on underwear, a much higher demand product from homeless communities who probably have limited access to laundering facilities, it shouldn't produce a glut of donated product like TOMS' popularity did. Product donation is a great start, but anything that puts a permanent roof over homeless people's heads is much longer term and Bombas' relationship with St. Mungo's should help facilitate this if they are successful in the UK market."

Splash or Cash? The Greek Key Underpants

Versace greek key underwear black gold pantsVersace underwear, thanks to its signature use of the ancient Greek key design, has become one of the most recognisable brands across social media and in other images.

A little light history if you will. This decorative border is also called a meander or meandros. It recalls the twisting and turning path of the Maeander River in southwestern Turkey and is the labyrinth in linear form. It is thought to symbolise infinity and unity.

These, let’s call it an ‘homage’, from River Island, could fool even the biggest designer underwear fan. While the Versace Medusa head has been replaced by a bee - clearly these will be popular in Manchester - the rest looks almost identical and nobody on Instagram would ever know!

Trend Pink Pants

Pink underwear men's Boy Smells LA Blush y-frontsThere’s something very millennial, and also sexy, about pink pants. We’ve not had a pair of desirable hipster Y-fronts since American Apparel closed its doors.

Boy Smells from LA, known for their candles, has expanded with intimate apparel called ‘Unmentionables’. All styles are made in Peru out of premium Pima cotton. For colour, Boy Smells has chosen to further expand the brand’s signature pink with other neo-naturalistic tones: bone, buff, bare, and blush. 

On the other side of the Atlantic, Ron Dorff, the Franco/Swedish basics brand, has a pair of pink Y-fronts that will make everybody wink. Think pink for that underwear drawer refresh.
