IMG_7814Sukrew is a brand I have seen for a while on Twitter. They were first known for crotchless briefs and trunks These styles are called the U Brief or Trunk. But over the last year they have added some full briefs and trunks. The colors and patterns (tartan and Union Jack) have always caught my eye. So I was dying to try them.

Last week I got to talk to the owner and designer about the brand. We talked about his brand and how he got started. They have some good things planned for 2015. So he sent me two pairs. The Tartan Brief and Neon Pink UV Brief. Yes I decided to take one for the team and try the UV brief. There has been some requests on Twitter for us to try them out.

The two pairs came and I was super excited. Especially when I got the Tartan Brief. Have you ever slid a pair on and before they were all the way on you knew the pair would be awesome. This is what I felt with the Sukrew briefs. Then when I got them on they felt so amazing. The pouch, which was my biggest point of concern, fit me amazing. The way it held me was more ergonomically designed and was deciding on how well it stretched and conformed to me. The nylon material was one that I wasn’t sure how well it would fit.

Another area I had concern was the waistband. The band is a bit larger than most brands on underwear. So my biggest concern was that it would roll or bind through the day. I loved the design of the band the blew with the off set Sukrew name is pretty awesome. As the day went on I totally forgot what I was wearing. Which is how great underwear should be. You shouldn’t have a second thought about what you are wearing.

The Tartan print is awesome and fun. Its one of my favorite fabrics of far of 2015! The pouch is a matching red so it will draw attention to what you are packing. Which in certain situations is not a bad thing. The back is a full cut and never rode up during the day. The bikini cut just fit me very well. I will say I was impressed how well it fit.

The sizing pretty spot on. Just note the lowest they go is a 30 waist. So if you are smaller you maybe out of luck. I wore an XL and have about a 38-40 waist right now. Being tall it it me pretty well. I don’t think you will have many issues with sizing. It looks smaller when you take it out, than it actually is.
