Spanish designer Manuel De Gotor has been creating undergarments and swimwear for men since 1989. Starting off by showing his collections on the Spanish runways, De Gotor then had a brief period of made-to-measure, handcrafting only the most original and one-of-a-kind garments: underwear and sleepwear for his most loyal customers.  In 2009 he started his Ready-To-Wear collections once again, insuring that Spanish, European and men all over the world look good underneath their fancy suits and casual activewear. It’s exciting to see a designer paying so much attention to what is so often ignored when it comes to men: quality undergarments.

Gotor’s designs have encompassed a variety of styles over the years which you can see in the photographs. From colorful and bold swimwear to sleek and wearable briefs to silk, sultry robes, there’s something special for every man in Gotor’s collections in the past, present and surely the future. The photos show the versatility and luxury of the collection, as well as Gotor’s eye for fit and trend.
