What Lies Beneath July 06 2016

Despite the post title, this isn’t a horror story. More an affectionate love story of the unseen.

There’s something about underwear. Whether you are a man or a woman, the satisfaction of a well fitting, comfortable, flattering piece of underwear is something we can all associate with.

It’s strange when you think about it. As very few, if any people will actually get to see it. Yet underwear has the potential to make us feel sexy & confident.  It is also an essential companion to a good outfit, even though it is never visible.

Imagine dressing for an occasion.  A wedding, party, big night out, or just an important business meeting.  Your shirt is crisply ironed, suit dry cleaned, shoes gleaming. There is no way you are pairing this killer outfit with anything but the best from your underwear drawer.

As with all fashion comfort and style have to go together. There is little point looking good if you spend all your time readjusting and redressing, its not a good look where underwear is concerned!

The guys over at Jacksy have come up with a range of men’s underwear which is both bold in colour (something I am a big fan of!) and more comfortable than nearly any other brand I have worn before. And even more importantly, they have done so at a price which doesn’t leave you wincing.

It’s fabulous to see companies like this challenging the big boys of the clothing world and providing style, substance and comfort is accessible to all.

This is a genuine review of a product I rate highly.  So if you are a fan of their bold style and are looking for something that balances comfort, style, and affordability, then I would suggest you check them out!

The Best Gifts for Guys, from Girls June 23 2016

The best gifts for guys, from girls.

Girls often have the reputation of being hard to shop for; however, finding a proper gift for a guy is just as hard.

Generally, for all the love birds out there, thinking of the best present for their boyfriends can be a bit tricky; present needs to be located (or spotted), and striving towards, originality and luxury while maintaining a certain dosage of freshness and novelty can be a total brain-wrecker. Also, you can’t really break the bank now, can you – not that you don’t want to, but budgets are, unfortunately, not as thick as we’d want them to be.

Knowing your partner’s likes and dislikes is the starting point; when the offers are plenty and you’ve got no clue where to start, that may pose  a problem. However, if you are spot on with your choices, yet you’ve only got a few doubts, the right present for your loved one will definitely fall into your lap!

For all the girls and boys out there who are looking to make their stronger halves happy with their birthday gifts, here are some ideas that will definitely stir you in the right direction.

Underwear Fit for a King

There is no guy out there who wouldn’t be pleased to get high quality underwear as a present. You know this yourselves, a good pair of underwear will make you feel confident, fearless and strong, and the same counts for guys. A bold and sensible choice for men’s underwear is Jacksy underwear.  A well-made and recognisable brand, is a good gift choice…in your boyfriend’s favourite colour. One key-tip is: make sure they are the right fit!

Gentlemen’s Watch

Unless your guy is a total gym-fitness guy, buying him a high quality watch (which is, at the same time, super affordable) is a gift that simply can’t fail!

Made with a stainless steel case, tan leather strap and mineral glass face, these watches (pronounced “movement”) are pretty amazing and do make for an incredible accessory for all the guys out there who are into their fashion.

Beard Trimmers on Point

Is your guy a beard guy? Well, it really wouldn’t be surprising he is, given beards are fashionable nowadays. And what would a beard-obsessed hulk make more gladly than beard products (oils, combs and other beard accessorizes) and a beard trimmer of high quality. These trimmers are to be found at a price of around 30$, and they pose a perfect gift for your bushy lover.

Fitness Joys

It’s not uncommon these days to have boys go totally crazy about their gym time and bodybuilding activities. It’s all about a drooling physique after all, isn’t it? If your bae loves spending time at the gym working on his abs and building up the muscle, nothing would make him happier than buying him the right supplements (yes, everyone is using them) or proper clothing for bodybuilding (that would make him look even more dashing while working out). It’s all about the little details that make love strong.

His Favorite Gadget

It’s no news that most guys are obsessed with technology and gadgets; paying close attention to the gadgets your boo has been talking about recently will make buying a gadget present for him pretty easy. Remember his preferences, go to a store and buy him the gadget he’s been obsessing about for the past few months. He’ll love it!

That One Game

Is your bae a gamer? Ah, aren’t they all… No matter how old, guys seem to never fully grow up. They love their games, and that’s just something girls will have to accept and hold their peace forever and ever. Since you already know what game your boyfriend is hooked on, ask around about the latest edition of it and buy it for him!  Or, if he’s already got it – buy him a gaming keyboard, mouse or joystick. Warning: these tend to cost a lot… Oh, well – all for love, right?

Easy Ways To Feature Your Fearlessness With Sexy Mens Underwear November 25 2015

Easy Ways To Feature Your Fearlessness With Sexy Mens Underwear

 

Fearlessness is sexy. Confident, bold and impressive fearlessness is desired by men and women alike. So if you have it, why not flaunt it? With mens underwear, you can feature your fearlessness. You can show the world, and yourself, that youre not afraid to take risks- and in particular fashion risks. So how can you feature fearlessness with underwear?

 

You can present your fearlessness by choosing bold, sexy colours. Bright underwear, offer confident hues that break the conventional mold. By choosing underwear in a nontraditional colour, you can be confident in knowing that you arent sticking to plain or boring tones like white or cream. However, that isnt to say that all traditional underwear is tiresome. A pair of sexy black briefs can be a great way to show off your confidence, in a more demure and sophisticated way.

 

Likewise, you can show your fearlessness by choosing underwear with statement waistbands. Boxers or briefs that offer a thick, elasticated waistband- decorated with large, eye catching fonts (or images) are the height of fearless fashion. They sit high above low waisted trousers, and give the world of a glimpse of your confidence. Dont be afraid to show as much of your waistband as you feel comfortable with, as this is an eye-catching way to demonstrate your confidence, and it can be a good way to incorporate your underwear into your outfit.

 

Lastly, dont be afraid to wear form fitting underwear. Men who choose a tighter fit, which accentuates their body, can exhibit their fearlessness above the trouser. Looser, baggier boxer shorts can hide definition- which is why briefs are a sexy way to make your confidence known. You should pick underwear that works for you. Dont shy away from research, and carefully consider the cut and fit of your underwear before buying it. After all, choosing the right shape and fit for your body could mean the difference between featuring your fearlessness and hiding behind baggy material.


Guys: Are You Getting The Best Support With Your Underwear? November 19 2015

Guys: Are You Getting The Best Support With Your Underwear?

 

Supportive underwear is key to your comfort and wellbeing. And while most men understand the importance of support, they also tend to opt for underwear that provides ease of movement and breathability. However, when choosing your underwear, you should ideally find a pair of boxers or briefs that offers both. This is sometimes a process that is specific to your body, although below weve listed a number of general ways for you to find the most supportive underwear.

 

So how do you know if youre getting the best support with your underwear? The first thing to consider is what type of underwear youre wearing most frequently. Boxer shorts, while loose and comfortable, offer the least amount of support. However, this isnt to say that you should avoid boxers entirely. The important thing to remember is that you should choose boxers that offer an element of support. This could be structural, as a result of the way that the panels and seams are arranged, or material based- as a result of the fabric being elasticated.

 

As a rule of thumb, however, boxer shorts are best avoided when it comes to support. They are considerably less supportive than other underwear, and boxer briefs for example, are much a much more effective choice for men. In fact, boxer briefs offer the ideal combination of comfort and support. They offer a similar cut to the loose boxer, while also providing the close fit and necessary support that is typical to traditional briefs.

 

Briefs are the ideal option where support is concerned. They offer structural support, that keeps your body comfortably in check. For this reason, briefs are the underwear of choice for most athletes and sportsmen. Briefs are also more supportive as they consist of less material, and more elasticated fabrics.

 

When youre buying underwear, its also important that you choose the right fit. While it can be tedious to try new purchases on before buying them, or worst yet return them once paid for- the power of a good fit shouldnt be underestimated. Ensuring that underwear is tailored for your body will give you the support you need.


Fashion Tips Below The Waist For Men By Jacksy November 09 2015

The days of wearing underwear as purely an undergarment are gone- and fashion experts nationwide are seizing the opportunity to make your underwear a fashion accessory. So how can you express your style through your briefs or boxers? And how can you ensure that you remain comfortable, while keeping current with the latest underwear trends?

 

Many experts agree that the key to keeping underwear stylish, is to first and foremost ensure that your waistband fits the bill. When men move around, the waistband of their boxers and briefs is usually on show. In order to ensure that your waistband is fashionable, look for underwear that focuses on simplicity. Waistbands that arent overcrowded with graphics or fonts will give you the suave and sophisticated look that is heavily endorsed by the fashion world today.

 

If youre interested in using your underwear to emphasize your assets, then British fashion experts suggest choosing underwear that fits and even clinches your figure. Choosing the correct size for your body is to key to ensuring that your underwear doesnt appear baggy or uneven under your trousers. Likewise, choosing a pair of underwear that features a tight waistband and fitted design can enhance your lower body, while keeping you snug and supported.

 Here at Jacksy we believe:

Our designs embody the modern, fast-paced lifestyle: a little quirky, a little edgy and yet a lot of fun.

Our inspiration comes from what surrounds us in our everyday life; from the beautiful beaches of North Wales to the bright lights of London and Manchester.

The quality and the fit of our products have always been our top priorities, making Jacksy one of the best value and quality underwear brands around.

We also carefully consider our manufacturers, to guarantee that all products are made perfectly, and last as long as possible.

Whats next for the new kid on the block!? August 16 2015

So with Bradley Smith getting his first professional fight under his belt, we got in touch with him to see how he thought it went and what his next steps are.
'The experience of my first pro fight was unreal it's a feeling and memory I'll never forget! The whole build up behind the scenes before getting in the ring, then to being in the ring and the crowd singing my name, it was overwhelming!'
'My next fight is October 17th at York hall, Bethnal Green! I loved fighting there on my debut, the atmosphere is great and it is known as the home of British boxing! '
'I've just been ticking over since my last fight and I start an 8 week training camp next week, so I'm really looking forward to getting back in the gym and working hard for October 17th!'
'I'm yet to have an opponent so I'm just waiting on confirmation of a name and then I'll be able to announce it'
We all wish Bradley huge luck with his preparations with him hopefully making it 2 in 2!

So as we mentioned, we got hold of Bradley in preparation for his fight on Saturday 4th of July and he informed us of his prep for his big fight. 

 

"Training is coming to an end on Wednesday 1st July after being in a training camp for the last 8 weeks ready for my pro debut on the 4th July."

"Training is based over 5 day period Monday to Friday where I stay in London with my good friend and fellow boxer Tommy Martin."

"Training over this period has consisted of daily routine of warm up, bag work, pad work and conditioning, with sparring 3 times a week with other known professionals to sharpen my ability."

"Training has been stepped up in the last 3 weeks with strength and conditioning classes, increased road work and sparring, sometimes 2 sessions a day however sparring has now finished."

"My Diet has been strict so no junk food has been allowed to make sure that my fight weight is met."

"Training Monday 29th to Wednesday 1st, leaving me Thursday and Friday to rest up before travelling to London on Saturday ready to step in that ring in front of all my supporters and do what I do best."

 

We all wish Bradley the best for this weekend!
