Papi is a brand of underwear I’ve not come across before so I was eager to try these Modal Euro trunks out. First impressions are really important with underwear and these tick all the right boxes.

The Modal material is soft and feels really nice on. The colour is a bold orange with a black and orange waistband containing the Papi logo, which certainly works for me. The trunks are well put together and when you try them on, the ticks continue, as they feel great.

The Euro trunk is a style of underwear is a new style for me and is a very short-legged trunk. So much so that the square cut legs finish above the base of the pouch in a similar style to that of a brief but maintaining the square cut of a trunk. It’s a style I’ve seen more in swimwear than underwear. The picture demonstrates what I’m talking about much more clearly.

The pouch is a nice size and works for the average man – looking sufficiently filled out – but I reckon would also work for the man who has no need for any kind of wonder jock uplift. The material is stretchy but doesn’t lose shape or style.

The trunks offer full rear coverage and a thin (1″) piece of material connects the pouch to the rear of the underwear. Herein lies my only concern when wearing them – if you don’t make sure everything is in the pouch and things get trapped in this region, it’s not comfy, trust me!

I’ve worn these trunks a number of times in all situations and give them a big thumbs up. The material is super soft, comfy, wicks moisture away well, and you can often forget you have them on.

My only caution is how the trunks will wear. My review pair already has a couple of pulls on them. I’ve managed to pull a couple of stitches around the leg by not being careful enough when removing them. Having said that, I wouldn’t let this minor concern prevent me from buying another pair.

I reviewed a medium and they fit as expected. Papi provided the pair for this review.
