Men’s apparel designed with floral prints became a prominent style about a year ago. Embraced by the younger generation of guys, modern floral prints took on the attitude of modern hipsters. But not entirely, because floral prints also found there way into formalwear — most notably on ties and button-down shirts, some of which used the floral for bold cuff and collar accents. Now in Spring 2015, floral print underwear is blooming across some of The Underwear Expert’s most admired brands.
There are 10 pairs of floral print underwear and one floral swim brief featured in this exclusive photo shoot by Jerrad Matthew. Modeled by Adam Powell, each look waters the prints with masculine touches.
The Jor Garden Brief and the Croota Garden Grove 02 Boxer are coincidentally the shoot’s darkest pairs. Jor’s design uses a black waistband and seams to contrast a floral print that rocks a deep green/bold pink contrast. Croota earns style points by applying their floral look against a navy underwear body. Navy is the thinking man’s “basic” color. It’s handsome without even trying, and even better with touches of white, red and light blue flowers.
On the lighter side of the spectrum is the Dirt Squirrel Floral Boxer Brief and Oiler & Boiler’s Nantucket Paradise Boxer. These looks do the opposite of the darkest pairs and trade black and navy for white and light blue. Rather than tone down the flowers, these color bases make them blossom. After all, flowers do need light to grow.
