Where does a straight man go for some sexaay intimates? Undies, a robe, non-gross aftershave, maybe even some cool socks and sock garters (OK, sock garters are my thing, and he probably won't want to wear them, but still...)?
I know everyone's definition of what constitutes "sexy" underthings is different, but you know the kind of shit your readers tend to like. Something that's not Hanes His Way, but that's also not a thong or a pair of over-sized purple silk boxers pre-scented with Axe body spray. Something that says he's scrubbed, stylin', and went out of his way to look nice for you.
Are there one-stop-shop places for intimates for hipster guys, like there are for gals? Or is my man (and me too) SOL?
PS: Honeymoon is in Hawaii so no super-heavy fabrics
Sock garters are your thing?
Do the rest of you have bizarre fetishes i ought to know about??
THERE IS NO COOL PLACE THAT SELLS SOCK GARTERS.
As far as a one stop shop for hipster boys, Steven Alan is about as close as you can get. (And when you say "hipster," I assume you mean yipster, because hipsters don't scrub all that often. Obviously.)
Steven Alan isn't carrying pajama bottoms at the moment, which kills me because the pair I bought for H last year are SO BEST, but I assume their boxers are just as good.
And I like the sound of the manly apothecary items they carry, like Citrus/Ginger Sea Salt Spray + Sea Kelp/Clary Sage Bath Salt.
H is also a huge fan of Malin + Goetz, especially the Peppermint Shampoo, Cilantro Hair Conditioner and Bergamot Body Wash.
I really ought to buy him the Cannabis Candle ("addictive and sexy")!
Realizing I sorta didn't fully answer your question. Oh well. I got a little pre-Christmas brainstorming done.
