Dillon C. Interview



1. Age: 23
  
2. Current occupation? I just graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre in May.

3. Favorite current pop song? Currently digging "Elastic Heart" by Sia.

4. Which do you prefer: boxers, briefs, or boxer briefs? Why?

 I much prefer briefs. I think that the less fabric the better. I get uncomfortable with full boxer briefs sometimes because of the extra fabric. Boxers simply have not enough support for me. I do like trunks too. Ya know, the shorter version of boxer briefs.

5. Has your current preference always been your underwear preference? If not, what’d you switch from, and what made you change?

I tried just about all types of underwear. I used to wear compression shorts as well because I played a lot of tennis growing up. But ultimately I just feet the most free and well supported with briefs. Also, briefs make me feel the sexiest. 

6. Do you favor any underwear brands? If so, which and why?

Surprisingly, my favorite pairs of underwear happen to be from H&M. My briefs are from there and the fabric is incredibly soft and has yet to rip or tear. I like Aussiebum for their swimsuits and shorts. But their underwear is a little pricey for me. It's like $15 for a 3 pack at H&M!

7. What would someone find if they went through your underwear drawer?

If someone went through my underwear drawer they would find a lot of different types of underwear. However, lots of them are hardly ever worn. I get underwear from girlfriends and family for Christmas but they don't always get the ones that I like. So some of them just sit in my drawer unused lol. 

8. You get a natural wedgie in public – how do you handle it?

Because I don't wear boxers, I rarely don't get wedgies. Boxers have that seems down the middle that often causes the wedgie. I mean, I get an occasional one but it's mainly because my rear end is somewhat larger in size. 

9. Do you have a lucky or favorite pair of underwear? If so, what color/style?

One of my favorites is my brown pair of trunks. They're also from H&M and they're so comfortable. I also love my black briefs, also from H&M! For me, I just like to feel sexy and supported. Even if no one is going to see me in them that day it still empowers me and makes me feel a little bit better about myself!

10. Do you have any funny or memorable underwear stories?

One undie story that I remember is basically when I was doing my laundry at a laundromat and my american flag undies fell out of my basket and in the middle of the floor for all to see. It was very embarrassing because everyone watched me pick them up. Now I probably wouldn't care. But back then I was just starting to buy more festive undies and I felt really self-conscious haha. 

11. GQ wrote an article a few months ago stating that “tighty-whities” are stylish now. How do you feel about tighty-whities, & do you agree with GQ?

I LOVE TIGHTY WHITIES! I think that they are most definitely still a fashionable type of underwear. If a guy can really pull off a pair of white briefs, granted, this means like REALLY pull them off, it can be the hottest thing ever. 


12. Words to live by?

Essentially, I think it just comes down to wearing what makes you feel the most attractive and comfortable and empowered. If you feel good you'll look good. And if you know how to work a good pair of undies then anyone would be lucky to see you in them! :)

Phil Bruce Interview


Phil Bruce is a fitness model and personal trainer. Mr. Bruce kindly shared numerous of his underwear modelling photos which can be found at the end of this interview. Go follow him on his Twitter and Facebook -- there's even more awesome pictures!

1. Age: 24

2. Current occupation: Self-Employed Exercise Instructor and Fitness Presenter, Personal Trainer, Fitness/Underwear Model, Football Coach, Semi-Professional Footballer

3. Where are you from? Stoke-on-Trent, England

4.Favorite superhero? Superman

5. Who or what inspired your fitness and model interest? Have you always been fit? 

My fitness has always been inspired since dreaming of becoming a Professional Footballer from a young age, and being in the best physical condition possible to teach Exercise Classes and conduct Personal Training sessions. The modeling interest came from being recommended in to doing it from a few friends of mine, and the love of it has carried on ever since.

6. What would you say is the toughest aspect of being a fitness model? 

Making sure that you are always in great shape for shoots, as they can occur at any time during the year. And to be able to constantly come up with new ideas and poses. 

7. What’s been the most rewarding experience as a fitness model?

The publicity in magazines, calendars and social media sites, the followers and support that you get from people due to the pictures. Also, making new friends and contacts, and climbing up the ladder to further success. 

8. What have you learned about yourself from being a model?

That confidence in front of the camera is key, and to never be afraid of taking risks and trying things out. 

9. How do you stay in shape? That is, what does your typical weekly gym schedule look like? How do you keep yourself motivated to stick to your schedule?

I teach a number of exercise classes throughout the week, including Spin, Pump, Aerobics, HIIT, Abs and Core, and Aqua, so I will go full out for each of those. I also do four weights sessions a week, and play Football whenever I can.

10. Can you tell me about what your regular diet looks like? Do you have a guilty pleasure when it comes to sweets or junk food?

Due to the high intensity and volume of exercise that I do, I need to make sure that I am consuming enough food to keep me going throughout the day. There isn’t really a set daily diet, but typically I will have Whey Protein and Oats as soon as I wake up, scrambled eggs for breakfast an hour or so later, Whey Protein and simple carbs immediately after each workout to fully utilize the recovery process, and some Casein and ZMA at night before I go to bed to promote good sleep and maintain fuel throughout the night.

 In between those, I will eat plenty of oats (such as oatcakes or porridge), other foods containing proteins, good fats and carbohydrates, and meals containing meats and plenty of vegetables or salads to keep me going, eating every couple of hours ideally.  

11. As a personal trainer, have you ever encountered anyone that has tried to freeload your training from a distance? [I’m thinking of the scene from Bridesmaids where they work out with the class for free from a distance] 

Yeah, I’ve had that a few times, bless them.

12. What is your biggest pet peeve at the gym? 

When people are on their mobile phones or reading a magazine whilst they are training, or people who train in big groups, and end up doing very little because of it. 

13. Which do you prefer: boxers, briefs, or boxer briefs? Why? 

For general everyday wear, I prefer boxers, as they feel more comfortable. I like to train and teach exercise classes in sports boxers/pants for the same reasons. For modeling purposes, I prefer working in briefs, as they help to show more definition of the body, and look more impressive in general. 

14. Has your current preference always been your underwear preference? If not, what’d you switch from, and what made you change? 

I never usually used to wear briefs until I started doing underwear modelling, now when I see I look good in the pictures due to wearing them, I make sure that I wear them for the shoots in order to get the best pictures possible.

15. Do you favor any underwear brands? If so, which and why?

My favourites are Calvin Klein and Emporio Armani, as they feel really comfy to wear, and they look really good on the pictures

16. You’re in a public place and you get a natural wedgie -- how do you handle it?

Discretion is the key to this one.

17. What would someone find if they went through your underwear drawer?

A massive variety of underwear, from the modeling ones to the sports ones to the boxers with a tiger on the crotch (seriously).  

18. Do you have a lucky or favorite pair of underwear? If so, what style/color?

The boxers with a tiger on the crotch are particular favourites of mine (like the pants Robbie Williams wears in ‘Rock DJ’)

19. GQ wrote an article stating that “tighty-whities” are stylish now. How do you feel about tighty-whities, & do you agree with GQ? 

Yeah, I totally agree with that, and I like to wear them for my modeling work; it helps to show the shape and definition of the body and they are quite stylish.  


20. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? 

You have one chance in this life, try to achieve as many things as you can, give everything your best shot, always take responsibility for your actions, and have no regrets.

Benoit M. Interview


1. Age: 25

2. Where are you from? Montreal, Canada

3. Current occupation? Masters student in Biochemistry

4. Favorite current pop song? I’m not a big listener of music, so that will be Applause from Lady Gaga.

5. Which do you prefer: boxers, briefs, or boxer briefs? Why?

Briefs! I like to have my legs as free as possible. You have maximal support but nothing is rolling on your legs and it feels so much more comfortable when you move. Plus, it emphasizes the attention on your part and makes the illusion that it’s going out.

6. Has your current preference always been your underwear preference? If not, what’d you switch from, and what made you change?

I used to have a lot of boxer briefs, but I changed for briefs for the same reason as the previous question. I always had the part on the leg of the boxer briefs that was rolling back to the hips and even when I washed them they kept rolling. 

7. Do you favor any underwear brands? If so, which and why?

Right now I would say that my favorite brand is Andrew Christian. I totally love those. The colors are so clear, light and vivid. The styles are simple but original. What I like most is the pouch that fits so well. I don’t like my parts to be stuck, I’m just trying to move it to get a comfortable position and I look awkward. With the pouch my parts stay in position but are totally free during movement and I feel so well that way. 

8. What would someone find if they went through your underwear drawer?

Most likely at 90% Andrew Christian underwear. After removing all of them, they would find some Joe Snyder, Gregg Homme, ES collection, Pump, Bodyaware, Mundo Unico, JM and Timoteo.

9. You get a natural wedgie in public – how do you handle it?

Deal with it, I endure the wedgie until I find a restroom to arrange my underwear.

10. Do you have a lucky or favorite pair of underwear? If so, what color/style?

The trophy boy brief in azure blue from Andrew Christian. It simply has everything I want from underwear. Brief, deep pouch and my favorite color which is Azure blue.

11. GQ wrote an article stating that “tighty-whities” are stylish now. How do you feel about tighty-whities, & do you agree with GQ?

I don’t really agree with that. First of all, I cannot imagine tighty-whities to be stylish, it is a plain simple white brief. I don’t really like white color with clothes to begin with because it gets dirty easily (not in the good sense). It can be useful during gym sessions to get your part fix, but I think there are better specific garments for that. The only moment it could be good if it’s part of a costume, like with a white t-shirt and white pants (picking black brief would be weird with that). But even in that case, I would take white briefs with a certain pouch to accommodate.

12. Worst wedgie experience?

Where I live, summers are hot and really wet. When you walk during the day, it can be easy for your underwear to slip and make a wedgie. You sort of deal with it because you know that everyone has surely the same problem.

13. Words to live by?

Make the future a happy place not only for you but for the others that will follow you.
