Men have not always taken an active care in fashion shopping and it has predominately been the preserve of women. However, more and more men are taking an interest in shopping and fashion, especially when it comes to mens underwear
More men are interested in looking good and this is possibly partly driven by the rising fashionable image of men in the media spot light, such as David Beckham in his designer mens underwear and it has now become cool to take an interest in your appearance. Testimony to this is the fact that more and more men are also taking increasing interest in grooming and skin care products, such as moisturizers.
However, there is still a marginal difference between the number of women enjoying an indulgence in fashion and style than that desired by men. Perhaps because some men still feel that being vain and fashion conscious does not quite say the right thing about their overall persona. This is possibly where there are an increasing number of men shopping on line, especially for their underwear as it offers them to indulge anonymously.
The trend can be traced to many things other than just the anonymity that online shopping provides. It also provides a more convenient way to shop, whilst also being able to participate in the plethora of online groups and fashion forums providing tips and advice for men on health, grooming and fashion, apart from the opportunity to also shop for that bargain that online retailers can offer. Or perhaps it’s because women may be more tactile and prefer to handle and feel the products in store and where men are more visual, so are happy to go with how an item looks on a website, choosing to buy it without feeling the need to handle it first.
Many men’s magazines now feature an increasing number of fashion pages and when they also visit their online sites, men will find there are usually online fashion communities that they can get involved in. Consequently, more men are being encouraged to adopt and broader contemporary attitude towards their looks and style.
Designers and manufacturers such as Triumph International that were once predominately involved with the manufacture of women’s lingerie are now experiencing a growing demand in men’s underwear, evidence of the growing interest by men in their designer pants. There is now an abundance of different styles and colours available in men’s underwear and that indicates the growing demand for designer looks.
Will the trend change? Unlikely, as it seems that UK men are slowly catching up with their fashion conscious European counterparts and so long as male celebrities take their image seriously, then there will always be an growing number of young and impressionable men who seek to mirror their idols, especially those from sport.
