Four fabulous brands for all the wonderful men of China!
C-IN2 believes that you often need to look better getting undressed than you do when you got dressed. C-IN2 – which means “See Into” – is designed for men with active lifestyles. C-IN2 products are versatile, fashionable and designed to fit, feel and look better on you. Gregory Sovell, the founder of C-IN2 underwear, is the same designer behind the 2(x)ist line which took the world by storm in the early 90's. Sovell has been regarded as a leading innovator in the underwear industry. He is credited with setting new standards for quality and fit by re-engineering underwear construction methods.
DT Underwear was started by David Tomkinson in July 2003 in Australia with a philosophy of giving men an alternative to underwear that was available at the time. Apart from being David's initials, DT also has another (slang) meaning in Australia - any schoolboy will know that his DTs are his swimming trunks (DT stands for "dick togs"). The idea was to create underwear that was comfortable and clasically styled. We only use natural fabrics - we want only 100% cotton next to our skin, not space-age fibres. We believe underwear just like any other piece of clothing is an expression of our personality so our underwear isn't limited to three colours: white, black and grey but comes in bold colours and prints mostly inspired by retro patterns. In this sense, our underwear is more than just underwear, it's fashion!
N2N Bodywear features original designs by Los Angeles-based designer . Specialising in unique men's apparel N2N ("Next to Nothing!") offers original designs in men's swimwear, underwear, and sportswear. Its cutting edge designs fit a man's body like a glove! Make a splash and turn heads this summer with N2N Bodywear!
Private Structure, Malaysia's most promising home-grown menswear label, has of late been making waves in regional fashion capitals such as Singapore and Tokyo. The PS anchor is our assurance that your innerwear is original Private Structure innerwear. In a distinctive design that sets it apart from ordinary brands, it contains information about your product size, material and washing instructions. We've left it on the exterior of your innerwear to free your body from any possible irritation.
