Brand Highlight: Portland’s Jack Adams

JACK ADAMS – DEFINED BY THE MAN WHO WEARS IT.

Founded in 2010 in Portland, Oregon– our very own hometown– Jack Adams is an underwear and activewear brand that’s defined by the man who wears it. They appeal to the athletic man with a masculine style – and a strong sense of style at that! They are one of the few brands that clearly acknowledge the confidence that can come from a fashionable, maybe even sexy pair of underwear. That’s why the quintessential Jack Adams man is self-assured, comfortable in his own skin, and even more comfortable in Jack Adams style.
Ask any devoutly athletic man what they look for in terms of underwear and athletic apparel, and they’ll more often than not claim the function and fashion need to go hand-in-hand for them. This is the exact mindset that comes into play with Jack Adams’ various products. Whether you wear them to the gym or during a typical off-day, our underwear is all about living the active lifestyle.
Peruse Jack Adams’ line-up of underwear in our Downtown Portland and Capitol Hill Seattle stores and you’ll always find something that toes the line between fitness function and modern fashion. Their briefs have a distinct sense of style with contrasting seams and color blocking, some of them even built with features to give your rear, package, or both a lift. The trunks, designed with a contemporary square-cut, also follow this aesthetic.
Like any athletic brand worth their salt, Jack Adams’ also designs more full-coverage trunk styles that run as low as you’re knees. But unlike other brands, Jack Adams also throws thongs and jockstraps into the mix. Jockstraps, originally being an active underwear choice, are especially welcome from this brand.
We love it when you shop local and support us, so naturally, we’re excited to support local brands like Jack Adams.
Happy Holidays,

Underwear: What’s your favorite style?

When it comes to the world of underwear, it’s definitely not a one style fits all. Nowadays, there’s more styles than ever before! Below we’ll map out the different cuts and styles so you can find the perfect one for you.

Briefs

I’m sure you’ve worn a pair of briefs at some point in your life. They’re the classic style but some vary in rise and design. They cover just the right amount of front and back, allowing you to show off that leg! Briefs are perfect for guys that want support without the extra fabric going down the leg– and also perfect for guys that like to wear tight pants. Low rise like the Calvin’s picture are perfect to show off that V line, then you go to mid-rise, and high-rise, where the band sits right below the belly button.

Briefs are perfect for: Moderate Sports, Everyday, Dressing Up, Going Out.

Boxer Briefs

The boxer brief features the same construction as the traditional brief but will traditionally cover half of your thigh– although many boxer briefs now cover about 1/3 of your thigh for a more modern cut. Boxer briefs protect you from thigh chaffing during workout and sports and have about a mid-way rise. Check out our SAXX boxer briefs with a unique feature to hold your goods in just the right spot.

Boxer briefs are perfect for: Moderate Sports, Everyday, Working out.

 

 

Trunks

Are briefs too traditional and boxer briefs too long for you? Meet the trunk! An ever more popular style amongst mens underwear, the trunk cut is a hybrid of a brief and boxer brief without the long let– in other words, they’re boxer briefs with short legs and a square cut appearance. If you like briefs but want to try something a little different, you should try trunks!

Trunks are perfect for:  Everyday, Dressing Up, Going Out, Moderate Sports

Boxers

Ah, remember your high school days? If you’re getting a little bit nostalgic, we have the goods for you. The classic boxer is loose-fitting– with no support– allowing your junk to move around freely. Most boxers come with a fly allowing you to take out your magic stick at will without having to remove your boxers (easy access, anyone?) Boxers have come a long ways since your grandpa was wearing them. Check out our fun designs by Happy Socks.

Boxer briefs are perfect for: Everyday, Casual Sports, Sleeping.

 

 

Jock Strap

Jockstraps are all about covering your frontside, leaving your bum exposed. They typically lift up your package up and away from the body allowing you to stay cooler and dryer than traditional briefs. Cups can be inserted into some jockstraps for protection during rigorous activities like sparring and martial arts. Jockstraps come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, ranging from a simple strap on the back to a more structure support like pictures.

Jocks are perfect for:  Intense sports… among other things.
