One of the most colourful and uplifting collections we have ever seen, the Brighten line from the Australian brand Marcuse comprises briefs, thongs and jockstraps in six colours (black, white, blue, red, green and yellow). Marcuse has stopped producing this collection for now, but Men and Underwear – The Shop managed to secure some more stock from the briefs of this line. One of the most helpful things to lift your mood on a grey day is to put on a colourful pair of underwear! The Brighten Collection is all about bold colours, offering bright and vibrant fun hues alongside classic black and white options. The whole collection is made from a modal blend fabric with a generous amount of elastane. This makes the underwear stretchy, soft, lightweight, breathable, and silky. Modal is made from wood pulp and is much more sustainable than cotton; it dries faster and lasts, retaining its colour and shape longer than cotton. All of you who have modal underwear in your collection know how smooth, silky and comfortable it feels. For those of you who still haven’t tried modal underwear, this collection is the perfect specimen to try it.

All three underwear styles (briefs, thongs and jockstraps) are unlined with a contoured pouch to give you space. The pouch is framed by piping in a U shape for a gentle lift and enhancement. Without any hidden cups or inside pockets, this pouch design will give you a fuller look and protect your package from friction against your thighs. All styles have a matching, soft elasticated 4.5 cm wide waistband with the logo of Marcuse mirrored and centred on a striped background. The briefs are low-rise and have the symbol of Marcuse embroidered at the back and a little piece of fabric to hang it dry, adding a nice design touch to the garment. The jockstrap has soft leg straps and an overall elegant, low-rise fashion jock style. The thong is a low rise, easy to wear everywhere, with a rectangular fabric at the back connecting the pouch to the waistband.
