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.

Best is to wear your underwear when wearing FBT shorts and esp you are going outside...after all you are in the public..

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 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.

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy.       Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: 大连万达), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda 大连万达 markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.  
    • Ok - so am old lah 😛 - been  on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes)   Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money  (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award)   Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold Medal from 2019 SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without $1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."  "SA :  gain $28,600 vs Soh minus $10,000 minus $28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‘false’ claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."   Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for the year of the Metal Rat (2020).    
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.  And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just STB (since 1997!)
