Men's Underwear: Red for the Holidays (PHOTOS)

Men's underwear brands embraced red this season, making it all but impossible not to dress to impress down below for the holidays.

The color red, rarely offered in men's underwear basics collections (which often are confined to black, white, blue and grey), has seen a resurgence in men's fashion. With a strong presence in next spring's men's underwear offerings, as well, there's talk of red joining the ranks of basics mainstays next year.

For this season, though, look out for deep, rich crimsons like C-IN2′s Blood Red, or the romantic reds used by Emporio Armani. Cherry red from the likes of Andrew Christian and MeUndies popped us, as well. Blood to cherry, these reds all pop -- a perfect statement for the holidays.
