stringers

In my blogging backlog, two underwear images from Daily Jocks, from the Echt Apparel company (of Australia):

(#1)

The Lowe [‘Lion’] Stringer

(#2)

The Equip Stringer

The linguistic path here starts with tank top, for a type of sleeveless t-shirt. From that, by truncation, tank ‘tank top’.

Then a particular type of tank, one with thin (sometimes string-like) shoulder straps (and, usually, a deeply scooped front): the stringer tank. From that, by truncation, stringer ‘stringer tank, stringer tank top’.

So: the stringers in #1 and #2.

Stringers are especially associated with bodybuilders. The two guys above are well bulked up, but the next two are out in the further regions of muscular development:

(#3)

At the other end of the scale, we have a nicely muscled but slender young man in slim stringers (from the New Arrival company):

(#4)
