The Football Brief features front laces for a sporty lace up look; while the strategically placed all-around contrast trim and stitching highlights your package while adding a little color to the mix. However, it is the Show-It technology that really makes this style standout from the crowd. It features a hidden “comfy cup” designed to lift and provide frontal support and enhancement.

Make A Splash


The Snow has got to go! Alright, this may have been an unusually warm winter overall, but we've had enough snow to last us all year. It's time to pack those bags and jet off to the tropics. Come on, we know that you booked that cruise weeks ago. Now you just need to pick out that perfect swimsuit.


Square-cuts have become an instant classic in the past few years. This style of shorts is perfect for showing off a little skin without exposing too much. The beautiful Plum Italia Plaid by Sauvage, pictured above, is everything a square-cut should be. It hugs you perfectly around the waist and thighs, while the contrasting plaid pattern compliments any skin complexion. The material is stretchy and fits trim to your body and the hidden interior drawstring is sure to keep everything in its place while hopping in and out of the pool.


We know how hard you have been working for that beach ready body. Now is your chance to show off what you've got! That being said, nothing will show off your body better than a swim brief. Pictured above is Pistol Pete's Navy Sportec Brief. This style features a flexible mesh that wraps around the front and back, striking yellow trim and a contoured pouch for support and comfort just where you need it. Be bold and try something brimming with character!


Let's face it short shorts are here to stay and these box trunks are no exception. Above we have the Royal Blue & White Navigator by Andrew Christian that are sure to have you looking your best while you soak up the sun. This style is blue in the front and white in the back while the coral trim and stripes add a contrasting pop of color to the look. The Navigator also features an inner lining and drawstring waistband to keep everything thing in its place, as well as two front pockets to hold small items. Give these shorts and shot, because we know that you can pull them off.

We want you to walk onto the deck knowing that you look great! There are plenty of styles to choose from in addition to the styles listed above. We encourage you to come in and try on a few pairs to find that perfect fit. However, if you cannot make it in to one of our Store Locations, there is still quite the selection to choose from at Wouldn't it be nice to bid the cold a fond farewell?

2015 GG.jpg

Let's face it; buying presents isn't always as easy as it sounds. Sometimes the holidays can be a bit overwhelming and it's hard to know just what to get someone. That's why we at Universal Gear have complied a quick list of items to make sure all of those stockings get properly stuffed this year!

It's been a busy year, so why not unwind and relax a bit. Luckily for you, or whoever is receiving your gifts, we have quite a selection of wonderful body wash, soap and hand cream gift sets from Molton Brown. These have been an all time favorite of Universal Gear customers through the years. Just because you are a man, doesn't mean you can't smell nice right? So go ahead and try the Signiture Washes Giftset for a clean sent that is sure to spice up your day. Or if you need more of a selection why not try the 12-piece travel sized Stocking Filler Collection for more variety.

Let's keep you looking trim! Fellow Barber has also been becoming a favorite among costumers at UG as of late. Like Universal Gear, Fellow Barber is a small chain that prides itself on quality of quantity. Which is why we highly suggest trying out their fantastic hair products. Want to keep your hair nice and strong? Try out the Complete Shampoo; made to strengthen your hair without stripping it down. Then finish off your fresh look with their Texture Paste for more precise and detailed looks. Use generously for a stronger hold, or a smaller amount to keep everything in its place.

Where do people usually look when they are talking to you? Well, more often than not it's going to be your face. So why not keep your face looking its best with a little help from products like Menaji. Cleanse your skin with a Deep Cleansing Masque; made to absorb oil, exfoliate dead skin and reduce pore size. This will leave you feeling fresh and keep your skin looking healthy. Also, before you head out for the day it might be a good idea to quickly use some HDPV Anti Shine Powder. Pat gently to even out you skin tone and reduce shine.

Sometimes it's the little things. Big gifts can be great, but it is also nice to have a few smaller ones to spread a little holiday cheer someone's way. So keep all these wonderful gifts in mind when shopping at Universal Gear this season. We're sure you will get a smile or two when reaching into those stockings if you do!

Keep In High Spirits!

This time of year is usually filled with gatherings of every kind. Whether you are heading to a big holiday party, going out on a date with that special someone or just getting together with family and friends; we at Universal Gear want you looking your best this Holiday Season!

Winter can tend to be a bit drab, so why not offset the dreary season with a pop of color. It's easy to get into that rut of wearing black, grey, and blue. So we thought we'd give you some alternatives featuring this time of year's favorite color, red. Here we have Duncan wearing a red and navy button down by Scotch & Soda. This shirt will keep you looking trim thanks to the slim cut, while the contrasting complimentary colors and the tipped collar will draw attention towards yourself. This is a great style to have because it can easily be paired with most outfits and outerwear at Universal Gear.


It's that time of year again; and like every year everyone is getting together and exchanging gifts. So why not spread a little bit of holiday cheer with everything that UG has to offer? If you take a close look, you'll see that the gifts being exchanged are body wash gift boxes from Molton Brown and an Archipelago candle. These are perfect gifts for the season and are sure to fill the air with a pleasing aroma. We also have our handsome models wearing a mixture of brands that we carry. Adam, on the left, is sporting a plaid red and navy Tailored Originals button down, a dark wash of Scotch & Soda jeans and beautiful tan boots by Ben Sherman. While Duncan, on the left, is seen wearing a light lavender Scotch & Soda shirt with a sophisticated patterned chest pocket, a sleek pair of Ben Sherman's blue chinos and a pair of stylish brown G-Star high tops. Most of the brands that we carry play well together, so feel free to mix and match to your hearts content!


Sometimes it's nice to keep things simple. There is usually a lot going on during the holidays, so it's always a great idea to have a versatile wardrobe. As you can see, Adam is playing it cool with a plaid slim fit button up by Ben Sherman. Keeping the buttons undone towards the top gives him a more casual look. However, this can easily be made more formal by buttoning up and throwing a light sweater or cardigan over your shirt for a polished and layered look. After all it is winter and bundling up is a must!

This holiday season, we are here to keep you in high spirits and have you looking your best! We know you'll be running around to keep up with friends and family, but don't forget to get you last minute shopping in. We have a wonderful selection of winter wear for you to choose from. Feel free to browse our online shop at, but also be sure to visit our store in DC or Hell's Kitchen (As some products can only be found in our store locations). We will make sure you look dashing on your way to any holiday event.
