Jockey Skimmies

Skimmies. Funny word, isn’t it?

Anyway, let’s get serious. We have enough things in life to worry about. Underwear shouldn’t be one. Oh, and sacrificing comfort for style? Unacceptable. With our newest innovation in women’s intimates, Jockey Skimmies is a must-have for your wardrobe. As we both know, it’s not just about what we wear on the outside – what’s underneath is just as important.

We’ve all been there before, you’re wearing your favorite skirt and you get that uncomfortable feeling of your legs rubbing together. Uh huh, that feeling. Or, maybe it’s been a busy day at the office and you finally can escape your desk, unfortunately, your skirt thinks you’re still sitting. Wedgie dance, anyone?

Specially designed with silky-smooth fabric, Jockey Skimmies let your skirt float, pants relax, legs glide and you’re even covered for those unexpected occasions. That’s right; we’ve all encountered a strong gust of wind.

Thanks to incredible stretch and recovery, Skimmies give you the coverage you need to feel comfortable and confident. Let’s put an end to the static and clingy fit of a traditional slip short. Step into Jockey Skimmies, we think it’s just what you’ve been waiting for.

 

Ditch those layers!

Do your winter layers have you looking like the main character from “A Christmas Story?”  If so, your layering-up routine is all wrong.  If you can’t picture our favorite holiday-movie character, imagine wearing every piece of clothing you own at one time. Now are we on the same page? We’ve got the perfect solution to keep your wearisome winter wardrobe from getting too uncomfortable (& sweaty!).

Thanks to our new Jockey men’s and women’s staycool collections, getting ready to brave the cold doesn’t have to be such a struggle. “Why,” you ask? The simple answer is: Thermocules. Don’t worry, they’re not as scary as they sound.

The technology in Jockey staycool was originally developed for astronauts – making your underwear so cool it’s out of this world! More importantly, the proven technology helps regulate your skin  temperature so you feel cooler more and more comfortable all day, every day… all year long.

The recent findings conudcted byMarketing Research Company – Kelton Research – has us convinced that Jockey staycool is the perfect piece to layer underneath any wardrobe.  Here’s what they’ve discovered:
What do you think? Have you been layering up a sweat all this time?

To help share why Jockey staycool is the essential layering piece for your winter wardrobe, we turned to our friends from iwearyourshirt. Jockey is an official sponsor of iwearyourshirt.com and we work with them to giveaway and share really awesome Jockey products (like staycool). Plus, they make entertaining videos and do a really great job wearing our t-shirts!

Recently, they got their hands on some staycool and made videos to share why Jockey staycool is the smart way to layer up this winter. We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we do. When you’re finished, be sure to check out our men’s and women’s Jockey staycool styles on Jockey.com!

Staycool, everyone!

Remember me?

Hello, again! Last time we met, I was celebrating my big 25th birthday with my very own Jockey® birthday email (still geeking out about that). Since then, a lot of amazing things have happened for me. Seeing as I work in social media, you know where I’m sharing my good news first!

At the time of my birthday blog and email campaign, I was the social media intern. I know what you’re thinking, “you were an intern and you got to do a photo shoot?” It’s still hard to believe, but I really did! Despite my title, there wasn’t ever a point when I truly felt like I was an intern.  Well, maybe there was one time…

The work environment at Jockey® is very relaxed and casual, no suits and ties or any of that uncomfortable dress attire. This is no surprise since Jockey®’s mission is “To satisfy the human need for comfort.” But, as the new guy, what did I do on my first day? I showed up in a suit. That’s right.  If getting lost on the way to the cafeteria didn’t shout “new guy,” my suit sure did. As I settled into my desk, admiring all of the new goodies Jockey® hooked me up with as a welcoming gift, my neighbor interrupted me as he peeked around the corner and smirked “nice suit.”

As much as I enjoyed being an intern, it excites me to share with you that I am now a full-time member of the Jockey® social media team (best news ever)! Now, I can officially call myself the social media guy for Jockey®. So, to all of our great followers and readers, I am looking forward to bringing you a fun and unique look at Jockey®. We have exciting plans coming up, and I would love for all of you to be a part of it. To make sure you don’t miss out, keep up with us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Oh, and if you’re wondering about my photo — it’s a Jockey® thing!

See you on social,

Ryan

Whether it was the time he taught you how to ride your first bike, change the oil in your first car or reassure you that the scary noise you kept hearing underneath the bed was NOT a monster – Dad has always been there offering his support.  Show dad your appreciation for all that he does with the gift of comfort from his favorite Jockey® collection.  From everyday essentials like socks, boxers and t-shirts to our sport performance and Jockey® staycool collections (that’s right, even dads can be cool!), we’ve got something for every dad.

As always, we’d love to hear some of your dad’s Jockey® favorites!  Oh, and don’t forget to share something that your dad taught you, too!

Gifting the same gifts: Great minds think alike

“Now that all of the children are grown, we still meet at my mom’s house to celebrate Christmas. A few years ago, we were doing the gift exchange and I was thrilled as I opened a gift from my mom and found that my favorite Jockey® underwear was her gift to me. I kept a completely straight face and urged her to open her present from me. When she did, she laughed so hard as I had gotten her the exact same thing she had bought for me – style and all!!! Good judgment seems to run in our family – like mother, like daughter!” -Laura, Milwaukee, WI

“My sister and I have similar tastes and both shop out Jockey® outlets. One year, we each bought the same style, same color holiday flannel pajamas for each other without knowing it until we exchanged gifts.” -Michelle from Kutztown, PA

If you, your family and your friends wear Jockey® styles – obviously you all have great taste! =) Once you get hooked on the fit and feel, you want everyone you love to experience it too! Our cozy microfleece and festive pajamas make fabulous gifts this season. Watch out! The same great styles may end up under your tree.

So tell us! What Jockey gifts are you giving this year? And, what would you like to receive?

Dreaming of a white (not worn, dirty or holey) Christmas…

“I was tired of my boyfriend always having “worn” underwear and t-shirts. He was buying whatever was cheapest at the grocery store. Once he tried Jockey, that’s all he’ll wear! It lasts and it’s stylish! Thanks Jockey for helping my boyfriend not have torn underwear!!” -Michele from Willis, MI

Ladies, this is your chance! Every husband, dad, brother has them…those old t-shirts that he insists on keeping around and WEARING even though they have holes, pit stains and are just completely worn out and gross! They may be referred to as “weekend t-shirts”, “scrubs” or “fill in the weird name he uses here”, but honestly, there is no reason besides cleaning rags that these t-shirts need to be around. This holiday, treat him (and YOU) to our Classic 6-packs collection. They make the perfect gift and are available in brief, boxer brief, midway® brief, crew t-shirt, v-neck t-shirt and a-shirt styles. Say goodbye to those “other” styles, and say hello to Jockey’s 100% cotton classics in convenient 6-packs. Durable, dependable and a customer favorite. Shop Classic 6-packs
