Ken Wroy
www.kenwroy.com  
Ken Wroy was launched in 2011 in New York as a response to popular anecdotes. Too many (men and women) reported that their partners wore cool clothes and classy suits, but when that came off? Oh Horror! The men's underwear choices were so drab & predictable.   It became clear that men needed help in the 'intimates' department. So I spearheaded this creative venture to break the monotony of boring unmentionables. 'Ken Wroy' is a designer brand of men's underwear (www.kenwroy.com). Its urban fashionable feel is inspired by New York city's spirit of being bold, stylish and electrifying. The designs are fresh, funky and definitely sexy. The brand's motto is "Be fashionable all the way".
