Snyder's comments on trying to keep the red trunks here:

"[It] was a big deal for me, and we played around for a long time.
"I tried like crazy to keep the red briefs on him. Everyone else said, 'You can't have the briefs on him'. I looked at probably 1,500 versions of the costumes with the briefs on."

If you search for Warren Manser, you'll find that there a other MoS art but most those are Style Guide Illustrations. Let me know if you want to add those as well
