Few designers of men’s underwear have as high a public profile as Andrew Christian, yet his celebrity status should not be taken as an indication that the range bearing his name is anything other than top quality designer men’s apparel. Andrew Christian may be the name of the brand but he is also a very real presence in the company and many of these designs are his – that being so, we hope he continues apace as this is a superb collection that is unrivalled in many ways.
The Almost naked range needs no introduction and this superb thong is among the most exquisite examples of the garment that we have yet to find; beautifully made and inspired by traditional thong design, it nevertheless offers unique aspects that are part and parcel of the Andrew Christian ethos.
What is perhaps most amazing is the brand’s attention to detail and use of unusual materials; this thing is made from material that is, believe it or not, 94% bamboo! That’s right, bamboo is turned into a very ecologically sound and superbly soft and supportive material and, when mixed with 6% spandex for shaping and enhancement, gives a superb feel and a great claim to green credentials – with underwear!
This is typical of the Andrew Christian style, for here is a designer who does not do things by halves; witness the stunning pouch, designed perfectly to hold and enhance the parts that matter in perfect comfort, and the wonderfully neat Andrew Christian branded waistband and the whole design simply shouts out quality – and yet the price is one that will surprise you not by being out of reach but rather by its sheer affordability.
There are no secrets why Andrew Christian is one of the best loved brands in the men’s underwear market, and it is items like the Almost Naked thong that ensure it will continue to be so.
