Underwear drawer looking a little lacklustre? Brighten things up with HOM. Born in the South of France, it’s been making comfortable, colourful briefs for men since 1968 - not to mention extra-snug pyjamas. Let’s face it, a good day starts with great basics.

HOM: in brief

For comfort and colour, look no further than HOM. Check out the palette of shades that will blend in with your outfit. Neutral blacks and greys are perfect for pairing with your Monday-to-Friday suit, while vibrant geo prints and bold tones bring colour (even if it does have to stay on the inside). When it comes to choosing your cuts, boxer shorts offer maximum coverage. In soft, stretchy materials with flat-lock seams, they’re all-day wearable without causing irritation. Boxer briefs are cut higher in the leg and give a little more room to move. Pick a pair in a sweat-wicking fabric and team with running tights and a sports tee. Or, get your week sorted with a multipack of pants (leaving more time to pick up that multipack of beer).

HOM: everything else

Once you have the underwear down, let’s get started on your other essentials. If you’re heading somewhere hot, look out for swim shorts by HOM. Choose from roomy cuts in quick-dry fabrics. Styles with built-in support are ideal for throwing on with a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses when you’re strolling the market before hitting the beach. Shorts with plenty of pockets are handy for storing those poolside essentials - especially your phone for those endless #itsatoughlife selfies. After a hard day sunning it on the sand, settle down with a pair of pyjamas by HOM. Choose from basic crew-neck and v-neck tees in soft cotton fabrics. Pyjama shirt-and-short sets in neutral prints are classic. Just add slippers for a lazy morning coffee or afternoon box-set binge.
