3Marcuse’s new underwear line, United, is a colorful collection featuring bold and bright colors for everyone. I was fortunate enough to try the red pair which was a beautiful tone of red, looking great next to the white waistband. Speaking of the waistband, the first thing I noticed when I picked up the pair was an unusual texture on my hands. The waistband writing has a rubber type feel to it, similar to the soles of shoes which I had never felt before. I enjoyed this new feeling as it was something different that sets the pair apart from all other underwear I had. Fortunately, the waistband does not cause any discomfort when it is being worn either.

The next visual piece I noticed was the front pouch and fly of this pair of underwear. The pouch has a button fly on it which is not something I have seen much of since my days in high school with boxers. The front button fly comes down to personal preference. We have had many discussions at UNB on the presence of a button fly. I know many men who would love that and appreciate having that on their underwear. For me, it is not something I need or want to have. I view that has a pro and con of the underwear, depending on what your desire is. I will say that I did not use it once.

I wear a medium and overall the pair stayed fairly true to size. I did find it at times uncomfortable in the front pouch by the leg opening with a lack of space for everything. I wore the pair to work and did all of the normal activities of the day. I found myself adjusting the area several times as the afternoon went on. I am unsure if a size up would have helped in that area or if it depends on your pouch.

The Marcuse United brief comes in 8 beautiful colors. I love that Marcuse is offering a gift set of all 8 together! This is a great selling feature and would recommend adding color to your underwear drawer this way. Overall the brand is a great looking brand and the slight discomfort I felt would not keep me from continuing to wear this pair or more Marcuse.
