My Masseur at underU4men

underU4men is pleased to announced new Swedish massage services by licensed masseur Frank Kaufman (LMT#16265) at our mezzanine level of our flagship Portland store alongside our renown “My Barber” brand.

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

We also use the best professional products available from Biotone® and EarthLite®. These hypoallergenic and fragrance free oils and gels will give your smooth and nourished with no greasy residue thanks to ingredients like Vitamin A, C, E, Apricot, Grape Seed and Coconut Oils. The EarthLite Nut Free massage oil provides an allergy-free alternative to traditional oils.

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,
underU4men

We thank Andrew Christian!

Underwear designer Andrew Christian– as part of his book tour– visited our Seattle and Portland stores last weekend. We had book signing events and after parties at R Place in Seattle and Stag PDX in Portland.

Described as his “passion project”, “Sex=Power=Freedom” tows the line of scandalous on each one of the 200 black and white glossed pages. The book consists of images that showcase the Andrew Christian models explicitly engaged with one another. The book is sexy, but topical: Christian’s commentary on today’s political climate.

“A person’s openness to their sexuality directly relates to their emotional freedom,” says Christian, who knew the importance of the book following the outcome of the November election, “furthermore, society’s acceptance of the LGBT community constitutes our political freedom.”

Freedom is a key point to the book. It features imagery and phrases that unblushingly push for LGBT equality around the world. “Sex=Power=Freedom” is an in-your-face defender of gay rights and gay sex.

Check out some images from the event:
