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.

    • How does SA selects Regional Best for a Regional Meet? Criteria: Minimum Medal Potential, and Qualifying Mark attained in a sanctioned SA-AAF-IAAF Meet such as Asia Athletics Championship Meet held in April 2019   A prodigy or competitive athlete, coached or otherwise, performance excellence must be "consistent performance" and worthy to represent as Regional Medalist Candidate and Win Medal at Podium (Fair Play and Sportsmanship). Shanti Veronica Pereira, a prodigy and competitive athlele, coached by Margaret Oh (Specialist Coach in Sprints 100m and 200m) are both congratulated for making Singapore proud for 2019 SEA Games Bronze for both 100m and 200m for Woman. If from performance-based and consistency criteria, we shall encourage Michelle Sng, having an exceptional effort of 1.70m in her Finals against the best of Asia at position 10.  Can she repeat her first attempt and clearance of 1.83m at 2017 SEA GAMES performance? We are behind you, Michelle, for she has gone through pain, injury, as well.... We wish you all the best for the Nation! 9 Dec, 7:10pm High jump women final
    • SA: 2019 SEA Games Marathon Selection - Replacement of SohRunFaster "The SEA Game is just another marathon" criteria Who are they in 2019 SEA Games Marathon?  2 months ago based on today's Uncle sharing - Info is extracted from: https://secondwindnation.com/gordon-lim-surprise-sea-games-marathon/         Both Mok and  SohRunFaster had consistent performance in 5Km/10Km/21Km/42Km competitions in SA-IAAF/AAF Races including University Youth Meets.   There development and progressive programs which enabled the 2 outstanding athletes to be podium and worthy candidates for the Nation's Best and Regional Best shows why. "The SEA Game is just another marathon" selection by SA, had actually derailed from what are the objectives of what the National Sports Body has entrusted to SA, "Where are your Medals to show?". What is your KPI? If likedat, we got hope for anyone here.  Wanted: anyone who had been to Berlin Marathon, Boston Marathon, London Marathon, we need to have a replacement National Candidate for SEA Games 2021. Criteria, you must be a worthy Podium candidate. Agreed with @trailblazer (Coach)  Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) to develop people with potential to succeed in sports. Ideally, we should start to develop children when they are at young age. However, in Singapore, sporting is ..... For the sake of the Nation, please don't STAD - Short-Term Athlete Development. It has never been the Nation's intention to be bestowed a "Fair Play and Sportsmanship" saga reason and win a dishonourable sensational "S’pore SEA Games men’s marathon gold medal streak broken."  Sports build character. Yes, attitude to win and be the best is personal. What is morally wrong, including even if I am given the finisher or podium medal, it is no longer important anymore. What's more it is just sports, and to have used the excuse of "proof me wrong, that I cheated, lied, and based on "factual accounts", even if at disadvantage of 0.5km, or even to disadvantage of a lead of 1km or 2km, a marathoner runner - the sheer perseverance to compete and win the race, no one can describe that feeling..only the best endured wins period. Otherwise, show us evidence of consistency performance, on the field, as well as to show us, "Performing Marathoner" face saving grace? What is your Qualifier-to-Proof. Isn't that the same critieria of 2019 Games Marathon Race? Only the Best represents the Regional Best? SA KPI - 2 Bronze and 0 Goal. The pressure of Gold is now on Michelle Sng for High Jump (Woman).  Michelle Sng saga with SA? That one, wait until the event, then we see what's the reaction later on lah... Enjoy 2019 SEA Games (Athletics) with uncle here, exclusively.
