Very, very few non-gay dudes wear 2xist, in large part because 2xist has very few boxer and boxer brief options. Only (some) gay guys are gonna wear briefs these days.
"Pretty much only worn by gay guys, yes?"
Yeah those and 2(ASS)ist
Yeah and only gays wear C-IN2, Andrew Christian, Ginch Gonch,and Baskit. Those underwear are unacceptable or unappeaking to most dudes because of their often too short, too tight, too briefly, and too girly styles.
I once knew this straight guy who had a pair that he would wear on Saturday nights. Yes, I noticed the day of week on which he wore them.
He's married to a woman and has two kids now.
$18 for this.
Do we still do Ginch Gonch? I thought that was long passe.
The Voice of the Night
I think it was once worn mostly by gay men but I'm not sure that's true anymore. In any event, it's very comfortable underwear.
The circumstances under which I am able to research the underwear preferences of gay men differ from the circumstances under which I can observe the preferences of straight men.
Certainly not all guys who wear them are gay, but the underwear has a gay sensibility, both in their style and advertising.
I have 2(x)ist athletic socks. I bought them at some dollar outlet. I've never seen them anywhere else. I like showing them off.
If you see it sold at Macy's, then straight guys wear it.
You don't see Andrew Christian or C-IN2 or N2N sold at Macy's, so straight guys don't wear those brands.
R5, your post indicates what? That 2(X) is worn by straight guys or that having Zac wear them proves that it's a gay exclusive???
Only gays are stupid enough to buy "designer" underwear.
R15 - My post and link was te equivalent of, "Just sayin'." Your interpretation would be just that.
What's the point of wearing boxers? If underwear is not going to corral your junk, why wear it at all?
Gay guys and straight men whose wives shop for their clothes at TJ Maxx and Marshall's
IF a straight dude wears them, he is either heteroflexible, hangs around a lot of guy dudes, or is metrosexual, especially if they are not boxer briefs.
R17, then I shall interpret the pulled up short, showing that lovely treasure trail and his 2(X)t underwear as his desperate cry for me to contact him for quite the bang session. I mean, that's probably what it means, right???
You can tell it is mostly a gay brand because although it offers a mere two boxer and five boxer brief options, it offers 26 options of briefs; 18 options of trunks; and five options of thongs/jock straps. A mainstream line would not offer so many options of briefs and thongs/jockstraps, while having so few boxer/boxer brief options.
Let's see if I'm getting this correct...
Gay underwear = display the dong
Straight underwear = hide the dong
presentation software for your hardware
r24, pretty much. You can amend it to read:
Gay Underwear=displays or accentuates the dong, buns, or upper thighs
"" AND it's homophobic trolling ""
Why do you deem this thread homophobic trolling?
It's not, I assure you.
ALL designer mens underwear is worn by gays.
Straight guys buy department store brand, in 12 packs.
[quote]Gay underwear = display the dong
When I was a young lad,I read the following section in "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex..." a thousand times. For some reason, it made me feel very funny in my swimsuit area.
[italic]Unfortunately for butches, clothes do not make the man. This is especially true of underclothes. Peel off the top layer of a butch and there is a queen underneath.
Their underwear is truly amazing. Some take pleasure in men's shorts so tight they can barely meet the needs of nature. Others choose briefs so brief they barely exist. Most butch underthings are little better than skimpy athletic supporters. The ultimate is an athletic supporter - two straps and a sack attached to the tails of a super-tight shirt. It works fine - the shirt is always tucked in, the genitalia held tightly. The only problem is that the poor fellow can't bend over.
One of the main reasons for such concern with underwear is the homosexual's desire to display his genitals. They are his stock in trade and he wishes to show them to best advantage. What a good uplift bra is to a prostitute, a good pair of undershorts is to a homosexual. Held high, thrust forward, clearly outlined by almost unbearably tight clothes, his sexual organs are there for all the (gay) world to see. This is part of the homosexual courtship and in the areas where homosexuals gather, it is really something to see.[/italic]
The whole idea of this going on drove me to distraction. Ah, youth.
p.s. Re-reading the whole book as an adult, I discovered what an abominably homophobic douche the author actually was.
Actually they are trying to go mainstream. "At 2(x)ist, and elsewhere in the underwear market, there was a growing sentiment that the models were getting to be, well, too sexy, at least to be relatable to a new breed of fashion customer: the average heterosexual man."
So r30, towards this end, ya think the 2(X)ist people gave Zac Ephron a case of their underwear and asked him to please be photographed in it?
The models aren't "too sexy," after all Calvin Klein and other underwear lines use very hot male models. 2xist models look gay because their underwear looks gay.
I have some 2(x) ist footie socks. I wear them around he house. They were 99 cents a pair.
I like their socks. Very form fitting
Women buy them for their husbands.
Slightly off topic - but remember the thrill of reading my parents' copy of that stupid book when I was an adolescent - and then as an adult thinking the author was a complete homophobic asshole...
Maybe we should give it a thread of its own?
My man has the most gorgeous bubble and hard big meaty upper thighs and he refuses to wear any underpinnings other than baggy plaid boxers.:(
Ryan from Million Dollar Listing has worn them on the show so... they must be strictly for straight guys. Don't know where this gay thing came from. Ryan is straight and so is his underwear.
Let's cut to the chase, OP: when you bring a guy home, and you get his pants off, if he's wearing 2(X)ist underwear, you can be pretty sure that he is gay.

Um...I'm Gay Gayerson McGay and I wear Hanes boxer briefs. I HATE wearing tighty-whities! It's like I get a "ball wedgie"--for lack of a better phrase.
You are not gonna find many straight dudes under 55 who wear tighty whities. At my gym, the only guys wearing briefs are old, overweight, and/or very feminine. Why do fat guys wear briefs?
R40 I don't know if this would occur to you, but if you get a guy home and his pants off, the chances are he's ay, regardless of his underwear.
THis thread is really silly, and outdated.
There are plenty of straight guys with briefs. There are plenty of gay guys with boxer-briefs.
not really, r44. briefs are not popular among young men.
Girly drawers for dudes
girly feminine wear
Would never wear this underwear. Too gay.
And I'm really fucking gay (in that I really, really love men and sucking fat cocks).
They need to masculine their underwear. I automatically reject potential dates that wear it because it is not the most manly underwear.
What about Inches, the underwear line by Levi from the A-List: Dallas?
