I wear jocks regularly. I am definitely not one of those guys that wears them just for athletic activities. So I was eager to try out this one from Papi. I love the briefs I have by them, and knew the jock would be a great addition to my ever growing underwear collection. Created in Miami for the guy that likes a little flair, Papi always produces some great styles and patterns. The Pride collection has a rainbow colored waistband that shows your pride.
I wore this jock on a pretty average work day for me. A quick stop at Starbucks to get my morning fix and then off to the office for 8 hours of fun. Sitting at my desk with the occasional lap around the office to stretch my legs. Exciting, right? Throughout my day, I loved the way this jock felt in the front. Papi underwear does a great job of supporting without flattening things out, and this jock held true to form in this aspect. I did feel that the support straps in the back felt a little looser than I am used to. Had to give them a tug a couple of times for adjustment.
The Pride Jock is available in black and red. In a size medium, the colorful waistband was a good fit on my 31” waist. Their size chart says a medium is for 32 to 34 inch waists, which may explain why the straps felt a little loose for me. I feel like for those of us with the awkward waist size of 31” (really, who carries a 31 in anything these days?) a small might be a better overall fit.
