Aussiebum

All over the world you can see men and perhaps women in Aussiebum underwear and swimwear. The brand is not hugely popular here with Australia making up only ten per cent of the market. It's first retail outlet was Selfridges in London.

A serious post with the opportunity to insert a photo of a hot young man wearing Aussiebum swimwear.


Aussiebum founder and owner Sean Ashbury's company sales now exceed $150 million and that was three years ago. I am sure the figure is higher now.

While the garments are manufactured in many countries, the designs and company control remain firmly Sydney rooted.

Now, I have heard of bra fitting specialists. Is there a part time job for a retired person as male underwear fitting specialist? 

I don't think we will ever see women back at stitching machines in Australia with a few specialised exceptions. But that Ashbury's company has been so successful must be a good thing.

  1. I do wish that the seamstressses (and they are almost all women I believe) were paid a living wage though - whatever their country. Yet another cases of profits for the company being increased by screwing over the workers.

    1. EC, we could have factories in third world countries where workers have decent working conditions and pay. We must be prepared to pay more for goods. Clothing is absurdly cheap or in some cases absurdly expensive.

    1. Does rather Cathy. Perhaps not the company's most stylish garment.

  7. I have never even heard of Aussiebum. By the look of that male model, I'd say there is a dire need for a male underwear fitting specialist. We all know there is a 'package' but it should never be that obvious.

    1. River, what's the poor lad to do if it is too big to be hidden discretely?

    2. One must tuck into position so it is less obvious or wear a swimsuit with an inner panel to help smooth "the view".

  8. Most men should wear better underwear. The routine things in life need not be cheap or uncomfortable.

    1. Travel, I wear nice enough underwear that fits well. But I loath boxers. I like support.

  9. Trust me, going for a bra fitting by a 70 year old woman, is no thrill.

  10. Never heard of that name. The bathers are nice and the man in them is not too bad either.

  11. I certainly know that brand name and have seen many (many many many) pics of fit lads in Aussiebums. I guess it's a gay thing!

  14. The swim wear for men is awesome. And that man must have had a wax job, because he has no hair on his chest.
