The indie undie craze, ya herrrd?
Male Sophie readers: the time has come for you to throw out that favorite pair of Hanes whitey tighties, and move onto bigger and better things.
For those who are boxer fans: well, I’m sorry to say, but the ladies are over it. Even you understand that you just can’t wear boxers with those skinny jeans: you literally get your panties in a wad, and the ladies don’t want to see you picking a wedgie all night.
Stock Market Crash guitarist Derek Knowlton revealed his neon underwear fetish in the last issue of Sophie Zine. When we asked him to strip down for this issue, he was more than happy to model, and give some pointers.
First and foremost, boys need to realize the importance of their undies. Their underwear are to be revealed at crucial moments, and therefore, they should be taken very seriously.
Let’s work on the fundamentals: this how the panties should be worn.
Undies should rest either directly below hip bone, or just below the hips. When evaluating your underwear situation, this is one time that Gramps should not be looked to for guidance.
Your jeans/pants (if you choose to wear pants at all after you see yourself in your new hot underwear) should sit just below where your undies start.
It is important you don’t reveal too much while your pants are on, though. (Sagging is so 1993.) The ladies only want to see enough to be curious about what you look like in your skivvies without thinking you are a bum, or possibly too eager to be pantless.
If you reveal too much when you are fully clothed, you are leaving nothing to the imagination. Everybody knows there’s no fun in that.

Since a bit of your undergarments will be slightly showing, it’s important to consider your color options.
Bright colors are the most unique and attractive. They scream personality.
“But where can I find such cute underwear?” you might ask. For this color dilemma, American Apparel has made it simple. Their underwear comes in a variety of colors, and there is even the option of the boxer brief cut for those who don’t quite feel at home in the briefs.
And here are a few more obvious pointers:
- Grow up! Don’t wear things with cartoons on them.
- Keep your those undies clean. Seriously! Change your underwear once a day.
- Yes, it’s true. Girls think it’s cute when ask if it’s okay to sleep in your undies. Don’t just strip down, and don’t expect to get some just because your in your undies. Sometimes it’s purely for aesthetic value.
Now go get some! (Or at least try to.)
Feel good walking around your apartment in your underwear.
Realize that, yes, you do look damn sexy.
