is it ok for guys to wear FBT shorts for running or other sports?

Recommended Posts

I am 1.83cm tall, and yet I wear them regularly. I am completely comfortable with them probably coz I have been wearing as home wear since my teens, and I cant care less if my friends joke about it. No one stares when I go run through even crowded places. It is much more common than you think, and the FBT shorts has actually been popular with guys for a long long time until the sudden female invasion in recent years. So in no way do I consider them female wear.

I kept some of my oldest ones which I compared the length and found that it hasen't actually changed much over almost 3 decades. The only major change was the material used (during those times, most sports wear were in thick, pure nylon, and not the breathable, porous material we have today).

I have quite a number of FBTs both in straight n curve cut. PLus I am 1.9m tall. I find the material great esp the 'silk' one cos it is cooling plus it dries fast. The other 'dri-fit' which costs abt $3 more is also great for running. In fact, i also have the running tops to match the shorts. Price wise it is so affordable esp if you get them at Queensway. THe shorts are for both sexes but the tops do have those for the ladies and guys. Chk out the arm holes n you know what I mean. I wear them for running, in and ard the hse, going out to buy something and even wear them to bed (of course wear a clean set to sleep la! :Big Grin: ) They are quite multi-purpose and quite durable as well...

I have the old FBT shorts...rubber bands no more elastic. Nowadays, FBT products are not running short alone, there have singlet, T-shirts, jackets, etc. Furthermore, FBT cutting are getting more sexy. Good example are running short. I just got a running short recently, dry fit one. The material is so thin...like a skin, dun know what type of material, it is as smooth as a silk. It is a low cutting short with 3/4 open sides. It cannot used as a sleeping short. Easily matched with related products.

This type of sexy cutting short....got inner liner. Sometime, I ask myself, should I wear a brief or no brief to run? I try without a brief...haha...very sexy, a bit of attraction in the park when I rested or doing warm up. By the way, I am not an exhibitionist, I just want to run as light as possible.

personally, FBT, Adidas, Nike, 2Xu, whatever, just a brand. no stigma or anything attached. it is how confident and comfortable you are. Not everyone is looking/staring. just enjoy yourself, be a little selfish.

Low cutting short, wearing underwear is not nice! Somemore, people can see your underwear when you do warm up exercise. Anyway, as long as you are not nude, it is okay in the public.

Please remember that most ladies are wearing very very sexy sport wear.... a bra and a low cutting short. To me, sexy FBT is nothing!!

O...ic. Thanks for information.

In my opinion, Singapore is still a conservative country. To me, this fisherman is okay leh. He is not expose his private part to the public. The 2 NP officers are "frogs under the well". Hmmm...no debate. It's OT!

Anyway, I m not like him, at least I wear a proper sport attire....a running singlet, a running short and running shoes with a pair of running socks. Have I offended the public?

Perhaps the frequent wearing of FBT shorts for any occasions imply fashion disaster, right? It is not like you only got one piece of shorts to wear!

hmmm....Up to individual preference. U have no rights to stop people not wearing underwear under the short.

I think you are more silly to fight for a tick in this topic. There is no true or false answer!

I think he meant sometimes, it inadvertently attracted unwanted attention although he is not exhibitionist. I suppose there always are voyeurs in the parks?

By the way, i've seen guys wearing all white (normal) shorts at competitions but with all sweat and perspiration, their dark underwear can be seen through. This also attracts unwanted attention.

Guys ... i think this topic is not so important and not worthy of such debate. Pls refrain from further response and do get back to topic about FBT shorts :)

A fair number of runners do not wear briefs beneath shorts with lining, usually for comfort reasons. For me, it is for comfort, for health (why drive down the sperm count unnecessarily? :D), and to save some money (briefs last longer, less clothing to wash).

Heck I do not even understand why people get self-conscious without their briefs under their FBTs. No one I run with has EVER found out I am briefless unless they see me change in the restroom!

As for colours, mine is almost all black and navy blue as I prefer conservative colours and they pair well with most of my tops. I have a few royal blue and white ones, the later of which was purely because it is a stipulated colour in certain organisations. :D

Haha....drive down the sperm count...100% Agree..

I have black, royal blue, red, green and even white too.....I rotate all the running short when running. Same as running singlet. Black colour and Dark Blue colour running short is the easier matching of singlet. White colour - easily dirty and take caution when resting in the park.

As for this coming Saucony Passion Run 2009, I wear a new sexy FBT running short - national colour matching with a new Saucony Singlet. haha.....

mine is black..haha..in fact, all my running shorts is black..scare like what gtlife64 said, colour of the underwear can be see through after severe sweating..

Mine are mostly black (my fav colour) with 3 dark blue to match some of my running tops. majority are the curve cut ....equal mix of the thin silk-like material and the slightly thicker dri-fit ones....

I agree that the white ones make one's undergarments pretty obvious if you are the kind that sweats buckets..plus it gets dirtied easily when you sit....I find the bright colours a bit 2 loud for my taste!!! But comfort-wise, it is simply great.

    • @beast, uncle has tried every reason to stick on SCSM 2020 Virtual Club platform with progressive Base Training Plan towards the "grand finale" edition... on the the hope, if there should be a designated route , say for only "invited" participants... at SCSM Virtual Club there is an accumulating "challenging distance" activities with leaderboard for Points...     as well as VR Race categories for leading "VR Runners" SCSM VR Club format...Distance Activities (Challenge) in Points and Race (Pace) with Ranking... in uncle's opinion, the selection criteria may say "invited participants" depends on how much have your training activity and how ready are you for the "grand finale" via your pace and ranking...which is monitored and recording in the 15 Weeks (VR #01 - #15)...against all others in the Community who are sharing in the Virtual Club... regarding on the issue of apps...pretty good...tested and proven to be reliable..SCSM (Ironman) standard...no comments...uncle uses Runkeeper..GPS Only Locator...Distance option only... uncle has not registered with a fee, because it is FOC..so what's the medal quality, finisher tee consideration...only when the "grand finale" edition is announced...so you want VR #01-15 finisher bundles or finisher tees...it is your discretion..there is no obligation... importantly is...between now to the actual day of "Race" day...whether it is VR or/and Run for Elites, or/and Selected Participants Only...say up to 250, or 500, or 1,000, 5,000..."selectively" like in recent Japan Marathons "elite run clubs"...or  "lottery" like in Taipei Marathon recently announcement... if decision to run on a "designated" route...announcement should be publicly in both social and print media...supported by MOH (safe distancing measures plan and approved), Sports Singapore (approval on mess event managment plan), Local Authority...with LTA/TP...agreed on Road Closures... event if the grand finale has a VR, would it be 1 session or Challenges which are 1-2 sessions..based on past weeks...why not Train for the SCSM 2020 format...and you would know, if given the format in 15 weeks...surely...no problem, it is achievable...1 session or up to 2 to 3 sessions accumulatively... something very unique about SCSM 2020 format... say if you should complete 21km in the future for 1 session...and if you should exceed 1km more beyond the 21km...SCSM 2020 had reminded to participants...please do not "not exceeded"...otherwise..." yes, don't overchong the distance.. see, even uncle dare not chong the 20km challenge...15.13 + 5.85...is 20.98 KM...so can practice for the VR which is stricter on "not exceeded" btw, the Challenge can be repeated..max is 3... attempts...so uncle can still chong 3 x 20KM for 60KM for this challenge as this one ends today...2359..lol overall response so far... Hope this helps! VR (weekends) and Challenge (weekdays)..SCSM 2020 format...this one is different from the other virtual runs...😀 Note: if the 4-5-6 Dec is considered as SCSM 2020 weekend...then the VR (Grand Finale) should have maintained the same format of  VR #01 - #15..and so everyone, are you ready for it? 5km/10km/21km/42km maybe Kids Dash (VR-Kids)...Run Any Place, Run Anytime, Run Global..Friday (5am) to Sunday (1159pm)? "Augmented" V-Reality... TBA...official SCSM 2020 only!
    • I am also keen to know what will be the plan for SCSM 2020 "finale"... My guess is for safety concerns, we will likely have both the option of running a designated/ recommended route or our own route to run on the first weekend of December, to prevent crowds from forming at the designated/recommended... But things are definitely looking for the better here, so maybe there is a very slight chance that larger groups are allowed before December, and staggered timings in a designated route is permissible. This will at least give runners a closer sense of running an actual race.    Actually you are given 12 days to complete the 58KM....  Mon to Fri - 2 x 10km - 20km in 5 days Sat to Sun - 5 + 15km - 20km in 2 days Mon to Fri - 8 + 10km - 18km in 5 days For ST VR 2020, you are given 60 days to complete 175km... means every week you need to clock 21km... that is certainly do-able... The main issue is ST VR is insistent on using the MOVE app, which is causing a lot of issues for runners as it a lousy tracking app that cannot be sync with most of the better running apps...You will probably need to open both the apps if you want to clock for both SCSM and ST VR mileage in a single run...
    • So far, we know the pattern >>>>> Weekend VR #01-#05 : Single Race (Pace/Hard Run) Sessions of X KM and Y KM respectively, for example this week will be 5km and 15km Challenges Offered on WeekDays: Single or Multiple Sessions (Easy/Relax Run)    gaining mileage in progression...weekly.. Say, uncle just completed last week (Friday 2359 hours)...20KM Challenge... Starting soon... VR5 of 5KM and 15KM...another 20KM contimuing next Weekdays...8KM "Preferred Route" and 10KM "Finishing Line"...another 18km... 20km + 20km + 18km...wah 58KM in 8 days...both Pace (Hard Run) and Relax (Fun)... another non-topic discussion...say if uncle were to be interested this one... free and easy...no restriction unlike in SCSM VR or Challenge Compliance 1 or 2 Session-only  175KM Category...if uncle can use SCSM Virtual Club (training plan)...with proper rest and recovery... about 3-4 weeks...Oct 19 to Nov 19 is achievable... so should uncle sign up ST VR 2020 for 175KM?... we are only at VR 5 or Week 5...still have 10 more to go...besides register to run FOC for SCSM 2020...can test and tryout if this is possible...abuthen..what's the next weekly progressive mileage next week Week 6? stay tuned...update next week... enjoy your weekend (and next week weekdays)... uncle busy gunning for 58KM in 8 Days..
