The Underwear Expert is a men’s underwear blog featuring underwear styles, advice and reviews, model photos and exclusive interviews, fabric glossary, men’s underwear trend analysis and style and service-oriented content.[1][2]

Michael Kleinmann is Editor-in-chief of the blog.[3][4][5] Kleinmann was president and COO of Freshpair from 2001 to 2011, before starting up The Underwear Expert.[6][7] Kleinmann also writes men’s underwear articles for The Huffington Post.[8]

While comfort and fit are important when underwear shopping, Kleinmann claims that men’s underwear is now a fashion item, with no less than 400 brands producing them.[1] He compares the underwear movement to sneakers, just another outlet for expression, with many fabric, style and color choices becoming available on the market.[6]
