Menswear Review 2013
Top 10 Sexiest Long Underwear

As winter settles in and the cold causes us to shiver, it's time to think about long underwear. Known as long underwear, long johns, thermal underwear, spats, or whatever you may call them in your part of the world, keeping warm in the winter months is important.  The challenge in keeping warm with long underwear, is also trying to find a pair that fits well, keeps you warm, and doesn't make you look like an idiot.  I recall the days of my youth, we had one option – hideous looking thermal long underwear that made you look like you were wearing an over-sized diaper.  You remember “the look” of the old-style long underwear; they may be warm, but they are seriously ugly and not very comfortable…..

All too often, when you look to purchase a pair of men’s long underwear, all you can find are styles that look baggy, sit half way up your chest, and simply just make you look bad.  What do I want? I want a pair of long underwear that not only keep me warm, but makes me look good too! Really, is that too much to ask?

So, this leads Menswear Review to publish our Top 10 list of the sexiest men's long underwear.  Just like the rest of our underwear, it needs to fit well, but we also need to look good in the process!  The list below were hand-selected by Menswear Review.

After reviewing a number of different pairs of long underwear, these brands came out on top. We selected the order based on quality of material, fit, and sexiness of the style. The order of the Top 10 below are in random order and are not indicative of a hierarchy.  Any one of these could be number 1 or number 10.

N2N Bodywear Classic Cotton Long John

www.n2nbodywear.com

While cotton may be classic, the N2N Bodywear Classic Cotton Long John is anything but classic!

MATERIAL

These long johns are made from an extremely thin blend of 90% cotton and 10% spandex.  Don't mistake thin material for lack of quality.  While these may be thin they are very well constructed and made from a quality blend of materials.  The material is a soft cotton feel and the addition of spandex gives it just the right amount of spring in the material to ensure they retain their shape and don't stretch out.

FIT

The N2N Bodywear Classic Cotton Long John are perfect for those not-too-cold days where you want just a thin layer.  These are comfortable enough to wear under a business suit or jeans. What I loved about these, and what made them sexy, is the pouch design.  I've long written about how much I love the pouch designs of N2N.  The pouch not only holds your package comfortably, but also gives some enhancement to your profile.  You will definitely turn heads in these!

CockSox CX Active (NEW)

www.cocksox.com

MATERIAL

Theses CX Active long j0hns are the new material and are made from an ultra-soft, breathable Supplex-Lycra® for warmth and comfort. The material is design for performance wear; the material allows for wicking of moisture and fast drying.  I can tell you that the first time I tried these on I was instantly impressed.  When CockSox toted these as being ultra soft, that was an understatement.  These really have a luxury softness to them.  The CX Active long johns are available in neon yellow, black and white.

FIT

While you can easily wear these under a pair of jeans as daily long underwear, they were design for sport and it shows.  The material is soft and pliable yet holds close to your body and taper to your ankle for a comfortable fit. What is perhaps the best asset of these long johns (pun intended) is the pouch.  The pouch reminds me of a jock feel – holding you comfortably, yet supportive, for athletics.  The added bonus of the pouch style is the awesomeness of the enhancing effect. 😉

Timoteo Sport 2.0

www.timoteo.net

MATERIAL

The Timoteo Sport 2.0 long johns certainly have a sport look to them.  The material used is a quality blend of 96% cotton and 4% spandex.  This blend allows for the comfortable cotton feel and still maintains its shape due to the addition of the spandex. While these are touted as sport, I would suggest these be for lighter sports or daily wear under jeans due to the cotton; cotton doesn't breath as well under heavy perspiration. With that said, these would be perfect for sledding, down hill skiing, etc… or just out and about.

FIT

I loved the overall fit of the Sport 2.0 long johns.  These fit like a  glove, were very soft, and have a sexy look to them.  I especially liked the use of multiple colors in the design.  Of special note is the tapered legs.  The tapered legs not only looked great, but fit well and stayed in place.  I also need to make sure and comment on the pouch.  I've always found Timoteo to have a very comfortable pouch design, and these are now different.  Designed for comfort, support, and flattery, you'll be very happy in the Timoteo Sport 2.0.

Toot Spats

www.pants-ya.com

or Toot

MATERIAL

The material of the Toot  Color Cotton Leggings (Spats) is made from a very comfortable blend of 92% cotton and 8% polyurethane (spandex).  Similar to other cotton blend long underwear, the addition of the polyurethane gives is just enough stretch to keep it close to your body and keep it's shape during wearing and washing.  The elastic waistband was well constructed and soft to the touch – perfect for all-day wear.  I found the contrast stitching to really give these an enhanced look.

FIT

I tried the Color Cotton Leggings in both medium and large.  Surprisingly, they both fit well – though I'd lean towards the large if possible.  As a 34 inch waist, I often float between two sizes. Famous for their pouch design, the Toot pouch on these spats was the same as I find in their underwear styles.  The pouch is comfortable, holds your package close, and creates an enhancing effect. The legs are shorter than you'd typically find in long underwear, but are perfect if you're wearing calf-height socks – which you'll often do during winter months.

N2N Bodywear Campfire Thermal

www.n2nbodywear.com

MATERIAL

These long johns are made from hand-spun 100% cotton thermal.  The result is an incredibly soft, thermal material that is so comfortable, you'll want to wear these as lounge wear.  And, let's make one thing perfectly clear….. these are NOT your father's thermal long underwear.  The softness of this thermal cotton material is second to none.

FIT

As we stated above, these are NOT your father's thermal long underwear. Not only is the material a polar opposite from traditional thermal long underwear, the style is too. The cut of these are a sexy, athletic one in which your goods are ever so subtly supported but magnificently displayed as the material gentle wraps around your package to highlight the goods without being “in your face.”  Masculine sexiness at it's finest! These have become my go-to long underwear for lounging around the house.

Malebasic Microfiber Long Johns

www.malebasics.com

MATERIAL

The material found in the Malebasic Microfiber Long Johns is VERY different for the rest of the long underwear found in this Top 10 Guide.  Made from a silky blend of 78% nylon and 12% spandex, these are not your typical long underwear.  The material is silky, soft and simply wraps around all of you.  In addition, I especially liked the contrast stitching.  If you're looking for something sexy to wear lounging around, these would fit the bill nicely.

FIT

The fit of the microfiber long johns was spot on.  The legs were a perfect length and the leg cuffs were soft and kept them from riding up.  The pouch design was comfortable, supportive, and sexy.  You can't go wrong with the fit of the Malebasic Microfiber long johns.

2(x)ist Essential Long John

www.2xist.com

MATERIAL

The 2(x)ist Essential long underwear is made from a quality grade of 100% cotton.  The waistband is comfortable as are the ankle cuffs.

FIT

The overall fit of these long johns was perfect.  Legs were of the correct length and the pouch area was adequate.  While these won't win the award for enhancing your package, they are still far from your father's long underwear.  The athletic cut and simple fly-pouch provides for a comfortable and classically masculine look – especially in black or charcoal.

Mundo Unico Suspensor Long Underwear

www.mundounicostore.com

MATERIAL

Unlike typical waffle long underwear, Mundo Unico uses a sexy ribbed style with smooth inner thighs.  The combination is quite striking and aids in the overall comfort.

FIT

The Mundo Unico Suspensor Long Underwear utilizes their prized suspensor pouch design.  A well defined pouch that supports you, also features elastic edging to help offer a little added lift.  In addition to the incredible pouch design I’ve come to love so much, this long underwear is made from form-fitting stretch cotton.

So, we have enhanced pouch, form fitting, and ribbed leggings, what else could we ask for?  How about a lowrise cut?  Well, you get that too.  The lowrise cut, emphasized by the bulge-enhancing pouch, really does create a sexy pair of men’s long underwear.  And don’t worry, although it’s lowrise, you still get a full seat for rear comfort.

Timoteo Varsity Relay Pant

www.timoteo.net

MATERIAL

The material used is a quality blend of 96% cotton and 4% spandex.  This blend allows for the comfortable cotton feel and still maintains its shape due to the addition of the spandex.

FIT

The Timoteo Varsity Relay Pant is a very comfortable, and sexy, pair of long underwear.  Similar to the Sport 2.0, the Varsity Relay is a lowrise cut and accented with an athletic look and feel.  I absolutely loved the pouch and the sportiness of the design.

CockSox CX Active

www.cocksox.com

MATERIAL

The CX Active long j0hns are made from a soft blend of 95% cotton and 5% Lycra. The CX Active long johns are available in neon yellow, black and white.

FIT

Wow, are these comfortable!  Starting at the top with a wide comfortable waistband, moving into the naturally fitting pouch, and sliding down the the form fitting legs, these were comfortable all around. Cocksox is certainly well known for their comfortable, enhancing pouches and the CX Active Long John proudly displays this flattering and comfortable pouch.
