The place to be last Thursday night was at Universal Gear’s Ultimate Underwear Runway Event. The event hosted by Fox 5’s Will Thomas and organized by Universal Gear’s new Marketing Director, Leigh Genetti showcased the latest in underwear looks that were clearly not your father’s skivvies.


While the event highlighted some of the current fall trends including denim, military inspired jackets and pops of color, these were overshadowed by what was hidden underneath. According to Chord Bezzera, the store’s Buying and Marketing Manager, we should be seeing performance looks and silhouettes in a variety of fabrics. And the show did not disappoint presenting looks from Timoteo, Andrew Christian, 2Xist and C2C.

The runway show kicked off Universal Gear’s underwear event which now through October 17th, underwear styles are 25% off. In addition, through the end of this weekend a portion of the sales will go to SMYAL.


As the fall season is in full swing and we look to spruce up our wardrobes, it makes since to update our underwear as well and this sale is the perfect opportunity!  After all, why go to all the trouble of putting together a hot new look when underneath is ratty and worn?

Universal Gear is located at 1529B 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005 and online.  Until next time, Happy Shopping!
