Hanes Male Underwear Models in Boxers and Briefs. Time for another look at vintage men’s underwear advertisements. This time, let’s check out these underwear adverts for Hanes Underwear. These first two ads are from far back as 1986.
Who is the Bill Blass mentioned in the copy? We thought it’s the sexy guy modeling the Hanes briefs but it turns out that Bill Blass is a successful menswear designer from Indiana. He must have designed these briefs underwear for Hanes.
It might interest you fellow UnderwearWatchers to know that Hanes is one of the 20 Bestselling Men’s Underwear Brands according to msn.com. From MSN Lifestyle:
A multibillion dollar company, Hanes is one of the world’s largest suppliers of men’s underwear. Founded in 1901, these days the brand reports over $4 billion of sales revenue annually. Hanes are known for producing good quality, basic pants that do what they say on the tin – no frills and no fuss. Recently the brand has developed a ‘tagless’ range, featuring label-free pants ‘because tags are annoying’.

Football Hall of Famer Howie Long was also a spokesmodel for the brand.
DeAndre Cortez Way aka Soulja Boy is, obviously, a celebrity fan.
So is Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto who’s seen in the next photo below with a Hanes underwear peeking up his jeans.
That’s it for now, fellow Famewatchers. Funny how we initially intended to just focus on vintage underwear but ended up with current Hanes users. Hehe.
By the by, if you are planning to buy Hanes Underwear, now would be a good time because the label (hanes.com) is offering big discounts. For instance, the cotton boxer briefs below is originally priced at $21 for a package containing five pairs. It is now being sold at $9.99.
That means a saving of $11. If that is not a great deal, we don’t know what is.
