Men's Sport Underwear



If ever comfort and support were important, it's in the choice of activewear and sports underwear. Many of today's manufacturers offer athletic underwear lines that are attractive enough for everyday wear and can often be an alternative to an athletic supporter. HisRoom carries many lines of athletic underwear, including Calvin Klein, C-in2 and Champion.

Find Your Style in Men's Athletic Underwear

You're not confined (no pun intended) to the blah styles of yesterday when selecting athletic underwear. Brands like Calvin Klein, New Balance and Under Armour offer styles that include athletic boxers, stretch briefs and boxer briefs, stretch cycle shorts, and jock straps that are really pretty high-style. HisRoom carries a wide range of men's athletic underwear from brands known for both performance and style.

Jock or Jockstrap



Formally known as an athletic supporter, the jock or jockstrap used to be SOP for boys and men when participating in sports. Consisting of a rather wide elastic waistband, jockstraps also have leg straps that connect at the bottom of the jock's pouch, go through a guy's legs, and attach at the sides of the waistband. From behind, a jock could be construed as a derriere supporter for the uninitiated. The jock strap is to a guy's balls as a sports bra is to a woman's breasts.

The name of jock or jockstrap has a curious history. In Scotland, the nickname for John is Jock. And like the nickname Dick is also slang for penis, so the nickname Jock too became slang for penis as well. So, this is part of the story for the name.

The original athletic supporter was invented back in 1874 as a solution to cyclists who were riding on the cobblestone streets of Boston. Back then, the term "Jockey" meant "rider." So the first name given to this garment was the Bike Jockey Strap. With its wider appeal for other sports, the name was eventually shortened to today's jock and jockstrap terms.

Jocks come in a variety of performance fabrics. No longer just available in cotton, a jock can now come in micro modal, Coolmax and viscose from bamboo. All these fabrics absorb or wick away moisture to prevent the dreaded jock itch. However, it is not the jock itself that causes this condition. Any guy can get jock itch regardless of wearing a jock strap or not.

In recent years, since the 1980's, there has been a decline in the use of jocks. Since the basic objective of jockstraps is to eliminate the flopping around of men's genitalia, men have found other alternatives that look more mainstream and have a less scary and embarrassing aesthetic.

The best reason today for wearing an athletic supporter is so you can also wear a protective cup. Yes, jocks can have an accessory. A cup is inserted inside the pouch and is made of a rigid material. In the awful event that a guy could be hit in this area, the cup protects his package from injury. Without a cup, not only is such a blow debilitating, it can destroy a testicle.

Most guys can get along without wearing a jock strap, but a lot more ought to be wearing jocks with cups. Though the cup may be annoying and a little uncomfortable, possible injury should far outweigh the nuisance. Buy the most narrow style cup you can find and fit into - it will be less bothersome.

Compression Shorts

- Most players in the NFL have foregone the jockstrap in favor of compression shorts. With all their required padding, they would just as soon minimize what they can - especially below the waist - in order to maximize their speed and movement. Therefore, compression shorts have become a staple in football and most other sports.

Even though compression shorts are far more expensive than the basic jock, amateur and professional athletes seem to prefer them. The compression short looks like a spandex biker short. It provides groin support and steady uniform pressure across the abdomen, hamstrings and quadriceps muscles. It's the same thinking as post surgery. If you compress the tissue, you will prevent swelling and vascular pooling.

Compression shorts are comfortable to wear and are less embarrassing to be seen in. They have become a kind of status symbol to be seen peeking out below your gym shorts. They come in great performance fabrics like Coolmax, mesh, micro modal, and cotton with spandex. Bike, Calvin Klein, DKNY and Champion Athletic Wear are some of the brands to look at.

Jock Strap Styles:



Wide band jock with a cup

- This is a jockstrap with a pouch for inserting a cup. These types of jocks are generally worn by players of full-contact sports such as baseball, football, lacrosse and rugby.

Wide band jock without a cup

- Of all the jock strap styles, this is the most common. Also known as a "gym jockstrap," this is your back jock with a wide band, pouch and straps. It is generally worn when playing tennis, soccer, and track and field events. This athletic supporter is also a good idea when lifting weights. It is felt that doing so will prevent testicle torsion.

Narrow waistband jock

- Also known as swimming/running jocks, this jock is worn underneath skimpy athletic clothing like a bathing suit or running shorts. The narrower waistband allows the wearer to more easily hide his athletic supporter under his activewear garments.

Fashion jock

- There are a variety of variations to the jockstrap on the market. These jocks do not actually function to provide testicle support. Rather, they are designed to make a fashion statement. Other names for these fashion jocks include micropouches, microjocks, padded jocks, missile pouches and floppers. They would be considered the male version of a g-string.

Activewear Underwear

- Underwear to be worn with activewear is more than jocks and compression shorts. There are other athletic wear items as well. For example, men need to have a collection of sports t-shirts made in performance fabrics. Cotton t-shirts are traditional, but now with Coolmax and micro modal, athletic t-shirts can actually move the moisture away from your body while working out or training. The same is true with sports socks. Tommy Hilfiger, for example, makes a line of men's athletic underwear reminiscent of the old wrestler clothes. Made in 100% combed cotton knit, this line has classic lines as well as comfort and can be worn as athletic underwear.

Along the same lines, 2xist has a line of athletic wear called Varsity. Again, the colors and style are reminiscent of college varsity sports activewear. This sporty athletic wear is a combination of cotton and modal with some Lycra spandex for easy stretch. Of course, players like Bike, Champion and Hanes have been in the athletic underwear category for years. New players in this market include Helly Hansen, Nike and Under Armour.
