Rockola Undies go Military

Remember my post on Luis and Juke? Yeah, where I got all naked. Well, the people (Rockola) behind that brand, have another too… Oiler and Boiler
Quite the newbie on the block Oiler and Boiler have caught my attention because I’ve been longing for nostalgia, for a time before time (well, the 80s). I recently bought a few 80s DVDs (Footloose, TopGun)  in the Blockbuster sale and was seen around Manchester and Cheshire today sporting a retro tape player whilst learning French for my impending Paris trip. Anywho, Oiler & Boiler have an antique feel. I’m into that right now.
These undies are called Navy and are modeled after that TopGun feel ‘The U.S. Wants You’ era. Think Saved By The Bell signs up. Not quite 80s but still “vintage” enough for me. 
Dog-tags, Dad’s from the Army.

My Stitch Menswear Finds: Fruit of the Loom

Remember Fruit of the Loom? The brand your Mum always said did the best socks? Well, they did indeed do the best socks…and knickers too! Fruit of the Loom have taken over the US underwear market and are invading Europe with a passion to do the same. The fruity boxers and briefs on offer at Stitch were reminiscent of Diesel underwear and totally caught me off guard! Available now on Amazon and soon in a store near you.

Luis & Juke

Newbie undie brand Luis & Juke sent me some knickers to try on. I was rather pleased as I’ve liked their bizarre style for a while after spotting them in TOPMAN.

The brand ethos originates in 1950s retro and aspires to bring fun into the menswear market. The tight cotton boxer brief styles are in bright, loud, young colours that appeal to your typical young male and are at student friend prices from £13.00 p/pair.

The brand have just set up their first stand-alone website and are celebrating with a cool competition, click here for deets. 

I wonder how long it’ll be before they start selling online?

Anywho, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Rockola Luis & Juke, especially for a stocking filler. Now, see me rocking these bad boys!
