The Bro Life: Speakeasy Briefs are Underwear with a Pocket. Also, Awesome.

April 28th - via:
Kickstarter has funded a lot of really stupid projects in the past. More often than not I find myself scrolling through aimlessly, getting angry at what I am being asked to fund. Not in this case however. Not in the case of the 'Speakeasy' underwear. Jeff Schneider and Dan Goldman have created underwear with a front pocket, to better help hide the things men don't want other people having. (Read More)

Hey, Guys: Now You Can Hide Your Junk Where The Rest Of It Is

April 27th - via:
First off, let me say that – as a woman – I don’t get it. This week, two guys launched a Kickstarter for a pair of underwear that features a secret pocket you-know-where. Yes, there is that bra that allows women to stash their iPhone in their bra. But these briefs – called Speakeasys – “are an innovative combination of fashion and function” for men. The guys behind the project say “They offer a style that says, ‘you should see me in my underwear,’ while providing a pocket that says, ‘it’s none of your business what’s in my underwear.’ (Read More)

'Speakeasy Briefs' Kickstarter Launched This A.M.

April 25th - via:
Speakeasy Briefs are a line of men’s boxer briefs with a zippered pocket in the front. They were invented by University of Soutnern California (USC) alums Dan Goldman and Jeff Schneider, two men who understand USC’s party culture. You don’t have to go to Vegas to dress up as say, a character from Mario Kart. Costume parties occur weekly on The Row. Even post-grad, Dan and Jeff have found that adult costume parties are becoming increasingly popular in their current home, San Francisco. Costumes rarely have pockets, and if they do, they are usually poorly made. (Read More)

Speakeasy Briefs: Junk in the front

April 24th - via:
Here’s a timely solution for guys with extra gear to carry at the start of outdoor adventure season. If you’re like most men, you’re constantly looking for more storage on your person: I know, there’s always man-bags and pockets but sometimes they just aren’t enough! Fear no more: Speakeasy Briefs has the solution. Co-founders and San Francisco locals Jeff Schneider and Dan Goldman created the new boxer-briefs with a special “speakeasy” front pocket after years as avid travelers and music festivalgoers with a need for a little secret storage place. It never occurred to me I might be underutilizing this area for its cargo capacity. Speakeasy touts the front pouch pocket is perfect for “money, passports, keys, cellphones, and even a flask!” Consumer, be warned: Some men may have more space available in that area than others. (Read More)
