112904-97-far-frontI am reviewing the Gregg Homme Snakeskin Thong from the Gregg Homme New Collection. So first let me preface this review by saying, I am deathly afraid of snakes. I absolutely cannot stand them. I can’t even watch them on TV without have to leave the room. However, when I got these in the mail, I couldn’t wait to get them on. The initial look and feel of these were amazing. There was not way I was going to be running in the opposite direction from these bad boys. Not only was the styling really cool, but they were from Gregg Homme so the “sexy” factor was going to be awesome as well. This particular style come in string, boxer brief and brief cuts.

Ok, so I am a thong guy! I don’t mind wearing them at all. The “floss” effect doesn’t annoy me one bit. I think they are sexy and most guys give them a bad wrap. I have not always been a fan but keeping an open mind when it comes to undies, is something that I have always tried to do. I wore this pair to work on day and they did a really good job. It was a pretty average day of meetings and sitting at my desk, but I really didn’t mind these at all. The pouch up front was very room and held everything in place. It also seemed to lift my package a little while gave the illusion that it was bigger, which was something else that I really liked. I will take all the help I can get! The waistband is only ½ an inch thick so it is very minimal and it’s made out of a faux-suede material, which is super, soft and comfy. They also have the Gregg Homme Logo stitched to the waistband front and center. The pattern is so amazing. It really looks like true snakeskin. The material is soft and stretchy, so your “snake” has plenty of room to grow if it needs too!

I got a size medium for this review, and it fit great. I usually wear a medium and these fit true to size. The pouch up front was roomy and added plenty of support and the string up the back was thin and hardly noticeable at all. These are all things that I look for in a great fitting thong. One of the other things that I really liked about this thong is the “Y” shaped back. Most thongs are just a string from the bottom of the pouch all the way up the back. These added a little more sexiness as the pattern is carried around to the Y-Back, This added just a little extra coverage and stability to the back of the waistline. I wouldn’t feel the need to go up or down a size if you are thinking about purchasing these. They are very true to size!

Like I said, I wore these all day at work and I thought they did a great job. However, I would probably keep these in the drawer for a date night or when I know they will get the attention they deserve. But it is nice to know that they will work for everyday wear if I am feel like adding a little “sexy” to my work day. The pattern and fit are also amazing and everything about the thong is spot on. The one thing that I didn’t like, and this is so small, but the seam where the pouch and the “thong” met up was a little bulky. Nothing that would make sure throw these to the side by any means, but it was something that I noticed and is important when finding a great thong!

Overall, I really like this thong. When I found out I was getting it, I really wasn’t sure what to think, but I am so glad that I had the opportunity to review this. I don’t think this is the thong for the “first time thong buyer”, but if you like thongs and have worn them before, this is one you should add to your wish list. The pattern along makes me what to try one of the other cuts from this collection. The material is awesome and just an overall well constructed thong! I have worn this a couple times now since I have received it to review, and every time I put it on, I love it just a little more!


  • The Pattern and Material is one that you have to see and experience to really get an idea of how AWESOME it is.
  • The Y-Back adds a little extra coverage around back but doesn’t take away from any other part of these undies.
  • The waistband is thin and amazing comfortable. Didn’t dig in and everything stayed right where it needed to.
  • The Pouch is roomy and supportive.


  • The only one that I have is the little seam between the pouch and the thong is a little bulky.


  • Daily Fit: 9
