What can be said for Andrew Christian that hasn’t already been said? I don’t think there is anything else that can be said other than the guy is a pure genius in the arena of underwear designers. It’s refreshing to know that a designer has come along that realizes underwear should fit you in accordance to what you posses and not what little or more the designer guesses you can place inside their creations. A true testament to the designer is when his/her creations accentuate the wearer and not force them to hide their body. Andrew Christian has nailed this premise with his Almost Naked line of briefs, trunks, and boxers. I have acquired a pair of boxers to review for UNB.
I should state before I get into the review that I am not a frequent boxer brief wearer. I do not wear boxers at all, but I will occasionally put on a pair of boxer briefs. No matter the design, if I wear them, they have to be comfortable. My complaint about boxer briefs is that on my body, they ride like you would not believe. I will spent most of the day stopping on the sidewalk or in a store and pull the legs back into place. As you can imagine, this does cause some strange looks from others. I simply stand up and smile, mostly at the other guys smiling toward me, because deep down inside, they know exactly what I’m doing and why. When I wore these, I found myself missing those looks as I never once had to pull them back into place.
I hold the Andrew Christian Almost Naked Sport Boxer in the utmost high praise. The material (94% Super Soft Rayon made from Bamboo and 6% Spandex) is soft and flexible yet strong enough to stay put when you are actively moving about the office or out in public. The Sport Boxer features the Anti-Muffin Top elastic “for a slimmer looking waistline.” The waistband measures 1.75 inches (4.445 cm). The leg openings are the same fabric and color as the piping along the sides (not visible) adding to the aesthetic of these boxers. The construction of the natural-hang pouch is beyond explanation. Whatever you posses, the pouch will easily uplift and present. I’ve seen pictures of certain performers wearing the Almost Naked line and, without a doubt, there should be no second guessing whether or not they will provide adequate room and allow a natural hang to avoid pinching.
I wore these while at work for an eight hour shift. The problem with many of the boxer briefs I wear is that when I am sitting at work, the boxers slide up my leg and tend to bunch. I was surprised when I stood up and felt the boxers had remained in place. That caused me to love them from then on. I reviewed a medium but feel that I could use a small. My body is stuck in one of those “in between” sizes where you never truly know what size to purchase.
A wonderful aspect about purchasing from Andrew Christian is the fact that you can be sure you are buying American made products. These and other designs created by AC are made in the design studio in Los Angeles, CA. That, in itself, gives me motivation to buy from this company because it allows many Americans to have jobs in this time of economic insecurity.
The Andrew Christian Almost Naked Sports Boxer is a fantastic addition in the world of men’s underwear. If you are a constant wearer of this design, having this boxer in your collection would be a benefit. You can find the AC Sports Boxer at the company website located at www.andrewchristianshop.com and they are priced at $34.00.
