Kim Kardashian has finally thrown the world of men’s luxury fashion a curveball — or should we say, a skintight curve-hug? That’s right, folks, the queen of all things reality TV, fashion, and well, pretty much everything in between, has unveiled the long-awaited SKIMS for men. It’s a move that has set the style sphere abuzz and we couldn’t resist diving headfirst into the world of SKIMS for men to bring you our top picks from this launch.

If reality TV and reality stars are not your thing, SKIMS is Kim Kardashian’s brainchild. It’s a brand that has effectively redefined the shapewear game, becoming a global sensation in the process. Whether you adore her or resent her, there’s no denying that Kardashian has a Midas touch when it comes to fashion.

Now, as Kardashian takes the plunge into the world of men’s underwear, we’re left with no choice but to sit up, take notice, and appreciate the audacity of this move. In a market historically dominated by boxers, briefs, and the mundane, SKIMS for men is set to disrupt the status quo in a way only a Kardashian can. And you know what? We’re here for it. SKIMS Men offers everything from T-shirts to shapewear designed to flatter, enhance, and elevate everyday essentials. Whether you’re heading to a business meeting, hitting the gym, or just lounging at home, SKIMS Men has got you covered, quite literally.

Our top picks: The SKIMS Men lineup

What’s on the menu, you ask? Well, here’s a sneak peek at our favorite pieces from the much-anticipated SKIMS Men line:

SKIMS Men black boxer briefs

SKIMS Sport men’s 7-inch boxer briefs

The SKIMS Sport men’s 7-inch boxer briefs are crafted with meticulous attention to detail. The longer 7-inch inseam offers additional coverage and support. Engineered for both athletic endeavors and everyday wear, these SKIMS men’s boxers feature a flexible, moisture-wicking fabric that moves with you, keeping you comfortable and dry no matter the activity. With a contoured pouch for optimal support, these are a perfect fit for trips to the gym or everyday wear under your jeans as they won’t bunch up.

SKIMS Men black t-shirt

SKIMS Sport men’s T-shirt

This T-shirt is the epitome of versatility and comfort, making it the ideal choice for an everyday go-to undershirt. Crafted from a premium blend of materials, this T-shirt offers a perfect combination of softness and stretch, ensuring it fits seamlessly under any outfit. With its classic crew-neck design and a relaxed fit, this T-shirt provides all-day comfort and style. While it’s perfect under any outfit, it’s definitely stylish enough to wear alone with a pair of jeans or to the gym. The only downside to this is the price tag, so it will certainly be an investment if you’re used to buying a six-pack of undershirts at Walmart.

SKIMS Men black tank

SKIMS Sport men’s muscle tank

The SKIMS Sport muscle tank offers a combination of athletic appeal and contemporary fashion. The relaxed fit provides comfort and freedom of movement, making it perfect for workouts or casual wear. Crafted from high-quality, breathable materials, this tank ensures you stay cool and comfortable when you’re pumping iron or jogging on the treadmill. The quick-dry material and sweat-wicking properties make this the perfect shirt for a gym session or a basketball game with the guys, and you won’t be the one with gross armpit stains at the end.

The audacious move: Kim Kardashian’s foray into men’s luxury undergarments

As Kim Kardashian herself aptly put it in her recent interview with GQ, “We’ve never had a bigger request than to launch men’s.” Gone are the days of settling for subpar skivvies; SKIMS Men is here to save us from that sartorial nightmare.

As we delve deeper into the world of SKIMS Men, we can’t help but admire the careful attention to detail. Every piece from this line, whether it’s the cozy loungewear or the sculpting men’s underwear, embodies the essence of luxury. It’s a reminder that your everyday wear should make you feel exceptional, and that’s precisely what the SKIMS Men line offers.

In a true power move — SKIMS Men has become the official underwear partner of the NBA, becoming a part of the game in the most stylish way possible. Basketball players known for their physical prowess and style off the court are choosing SKIMS as their go-to undergarments. It’s a testament to the brand’s quality and the trust it has garnered among athletes.

And being the marketing genius that she is, Kardashian has put out advertisements featuring six-pack abs, smoldering stares, and athletes galore, including Neymar Jr., Nick Bosa, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Let’s just say the new campaign is giving the old-school Calvin Klein ads a run for their money.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.

Fashion is cyclical. There are looks that we loved when they were all the rage and then started to make fun of when they lost favor, only to look back fondly and do all we could to bring them back. A good example of fashion-making comebacks is the mom jeans of the '80s starting to show up in women's fashion and men bringing back the mullet. No hairstyle was mocked harder than the mullet in the 00s, but here we are wearing it again. '90s fashion trends are never far out of our nostalgic minds, but some of them are making the jump from fond memories to current staples.

Fashion may be cyclical, but style is an ever-evolving thing with classical, unmoving ideals. The warring dynamic between the progress of fashion and the unwavering mindset of style creates some striking looks to make you stand out. Bold confidence is the way to take what you saw thirty years ago and make it your own today. Here are six trends from the '90s you can make work today.
