Men are finally able to get a piece of action in the jean short-shorts game thanks to Japanese fashion label CUW and its JeanPants Underwear. These boxer briefs are designed to look like cutoff jean shorts. Tobias Funke of Arrested Development would be beside himself with joy.
Despite my desires for the JeanPants Underwear to stay true to its name and actually be made out of denim, these briefs are actually composed of 95 percent cotton and 5 percent polyurethane. I don't know if these will ever catch on in America, but I suppose they have as good a shot as anything else to become a huge hit. Remember, there was a time when the mere notion of jean leggings would cause people to erupt into fits of laughter and mockery. Now look at us.
