The Parke & Ronen Brief is one of the slickest pairs of underwear you’ll find. The solid black design is endlessly versatile. They top it off with red lowercase branding on a satin-finish waistband for some high-class flair. It’s refined look may be suitable for your typical day, but this isn’t your typical black brief. Perfect under a suit, or under nothing at all, this pair is just right for a job interview or opening a bottle of red at home with that special someone.
Working out doesn’t have to involve going to the gym. With the summer sun on its way, we can get out and stay active more and more. Here are a few ideas for beach activities to stay fit and have fun in your best swimwear.
Surfing: Catching waves on one of SoCal’s beautiful beaches is a great workout. If you’ve never surfed before, take a lesson from one of the many surf schools at Mission Beach or Pacific Beach. Rent a foam board and you’re all set. We’re not judging if you just go for the white wash. This exercise works your arms as you paddle past waves and your abs when you pop up to stand and drop into that wave. Keep your legs protected and look fresh in the Parke & Ronen Colorblock Retro Volley Boardshort in red and olive green.
Parke & Ronen Solid Pima Cotton Trunk– The boxer brief style is a great crossover option for most slim fitting jeans. This boxer brief will give you the same amount of coverage as a looser boxer short, but its form-fitting shape will prevent it from bunching up in the way looser underwear sometimes can.
A modish nod to the Mad Men ‘70s, this season’s of-the-moment polo is a sporty knit version with sleeve cuffs and hemline that calls to mind your favorite lightweight sweater. A shade more dapper than its traditional pique cousins, and no need to tuck — just make sure to keep those sleeves short to show off the arms you’ve (hopefully) been working so hard on.
Navy. Red. White. Quite simply, you cannot go wrong with this color combo. Throw a dash of hunter green suede in there and you’re winning summer.
Oh, and did we mention that said color combo also kills with a light grey suit? A look that — with a little help from some clean white sneaks — will carry you from casual Friday to a rooftop happy hour with breezy aplomb.
Following a bohemian outing channeling the 1970s, Parke & Ronen looked to snowy mountain peaks for the inspiration of its fall-winter 2016 men’s collection. Fused with an affection for Southwestern motifs, the label unveiled fun and youthful styles for the season. Embracing a cheeky makeover for fall, Parke & Ronen’s man adopts ski-inspired knitwear, patterned joggers and luxurious throws. Not forgetting his roots, the brand’s protagonist has more than plaid trousers and printed jackets to add to his wardrobe.
Parke & Ronen created a swimwear capsule collection for fall as well. The brand cheekily explained, “Whether you’re skiing in New Mexico or sunbathing in Miami, it’s always jacuzzi season somewhere.”
From petty hustler to Luchino Visconti muse, German actor Helmut Berger embodied the quintessential 1970s hunk. Here, photographer Joseph Lally pays tribute to his enduring sex-appeal in this spring's best designs.
With traditional dyads dropping all around them, men gained on what used to be known as the opposite sex in their passion to become the new women. While traditionally wives and girlfriends bought underclothes for their male partners, now certain male consumers think nothing of spending up to $470 for unmentionables. True, the Hanes three-pack is unlikely to go the way of the dodo. Yet with nearly $3 billion spent last year on luxury underclothes, guys in sexy boxer briefs are getting all the likes on Instagram.
