Gay-owned “Skull and Bones” creates quality made artistically designed men’s underwear and accessories
Designed by Coach’s former Senior Director of Men’s Bags & Accessories, Robert Matysiewski with his partner in life and business Vincent Pilato, Skull & Bones mission was to give men more than just a flashy selection of undergarments and basics.
This lead to the creation of a line that focused on beautiful prints, that would treat each individual pair as a work of art, while maintaining the luxurious quality that men have come to expect. Skull & Bones focuses on the construction and design of their products to stand out from competitors, finding their niche at a contemporary level where men’s underwear is both luxurious and budget friendly.
Their collection includes briefs, boxer briefs, trunks, thongs, and jocks in a wide variety of styles, making it easy to choose a pair for any mood or occasion. The fit is snug and sexy, covering up just as much as you want based on the style you choose. Each items is built to not lose shape even after repeated washing. They also have a collection of fashionable hats, t-shirts, tank tops, socks, leggings, swimwear, and even a selection of harnesses to choose from.
The Skull & Bones logo represents a revolt against underwear conventionality, conveyed with attitude and masculinity. The skull & crossbones symbol also illustrates courage and ferocity, to forget fear, and live life large!
The first uses of this symbol can be traced back to the artistic genre of danse macabre (from the french language), which is a genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death. The skulls and crossbones were produced as mementos mori, to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life. “no matter one’s station in life, the dance of death unites all.”
