Honeyboy Briefs Trunk Show
Honeyboy Briefs Trunk Show

Join Dovetail on Friday June 28 from 5-8pm as we host a trunk show for Chicago-based designer Tyler Wilson's line of handmade briefs, swimwear called Honeyboy Briefs, as well as Wilson's art weavings, titled Weave Me Be. Wilson will be taking custom Honeyboy Brief orders that evening as well. Guests can view and try on Wilson's work while enjoying complimentary refreshments. Select vintage items at Dovetail will be discountd during the event.

Honeyboy Briefs is Wilson's independent venture born out of not quite fitting into store-bought briefs. Elastics were too tight in the leg and too loose in the waist; there wasn't enough room in the pouch. Honeyboy strives for comfort and a sense of personal security in relaxing in your briefs with yourself and whoever you encounter without pants. Honeyboy Briefs currently offers everyday briefs, swim speedo-style briefs, and specialty requests. 

Tyler Wilson is a freelance artist who specializes in textiles, stitching, and patterning. He holds a Master's Degree in Costume Design and Technology from the University of Missouri, Kansas City and has worked with a variety of dance companies, which enabled him to finesse his understanding of stretch-wear. Wilson lives in Chicago, working out of his home studio where all of the briefs are patterned, cut, stitched and processed.
