David Beckham to create, model line of undies

David Beckham knows a thing or two about modeling underwear, and presumably, he knows plenty about simply wearing them, so why not put those skills together to create his own undergarments?

The soccer star is joining wife Victoria’s fashion pursuits and is working on a men’s bodywear line, according to Women’s Wear Daily. He will, of course, also model said line of underwear.

“I’ve had the idea of doing a bodywear collection for some time now,” Beckham told WWD, adding that part of the inspiration was his work with Armani.

“With my team we have spent time working on the fit, the fabric and the style to ensure the product looks and feels the very best and I am hugely proud of the end result,” Beckham said. “I can’t wait to show people the collection — although I’m not sure my mum will be too happy seeing a billboard image of me in underwear again.”

And that’s not all: In addition to other projects, Beckham’s also got a men’s fragrance, Homme by David Beckham, arriving in stores in September.

But according to the athlete, his burgeoning off-the-field career wasn’t exactly intentional.

“It’s not my natural inclination to see myself as a brand, I’m just a person who has been fortunate to explore other interests and passions outside of the game I love,” he explained. “I will always be associated with my sport but I am now working across other areas that will continue long after my career has finished.”

    How is this news? Underwear? Is that all you care about is his celebrity and not what he does on the pitch? I swear as an LA Galaxy Supporter I find this all too embarrassing.

    Woohoo, now he is modeling underwear. Any chance we ever get to see him play a full season on an American pitch for LA, I mean isn't that why we are paying him enough he doesn't need to model?

      A troll is a creature that lives under bridges and eats the unaware. They are very ugly. On line, they are very ugly people who go into comment sections like this for the sole purpose of making obnoxious posts and get people riled up. Many do not even stick around to see the results of their popping up and disappearing. They are also known to use a variety of nicknames and many are thrown out for inappropriate postings. They just get a new nickname and continue on. For the most part they seem to be ignorant and nasty teenagers who are incapable of writing a grammatical sentence and spelling the simplest of words.They are invariably utterly ignorant of anything outside themselves. They are even worse educated than the rest of American society with no desire to be educated.
