Hi, my name is Keith, and I’m addicted to underwear.

Truthfully, I don’t think I’ve crossed into addict territory yet. But my wallet has been groaning a bit the last couple months. I am as new to the underwear scene as I am to this site, and it has certainly been an interesting experience. I’ve never given underwear much thought– until age 18. My mom generally stocked that drawer in my dresser. Usually with the back-to-school special from the local supermarket. Once I hit college, money was scarce, bills were aplenty. When I had an extra buck or two, it usually found its way to the beer fund. New underwear wasn’t even on the radar, let alone premium underwear with a premium price tag.

I’m now 28 and have a grown-up job, grown-up bills, and a grown-up relationship. My partner and I moved in together one year ago this month and as many do, share a dresser. It was evident we have very different taste in underwear. For my birthday this past November, out of love (or disgust), he gave me my first two pairs of nicer underwear. They were simple Stance boxer briefs with fun prints. As I am easily amused, this was a bit of a home run. I flew home for Christmas wearing underwear with reindeer on them. Win. What blew my mind, was how comfortable they were. Light, smooth, airy, and I almost forgot I was wearing them. Double-win. That was really the tipping point. Once you wear something like that, you really can’t go back the all-white Haines boxer briefs. Before my trip home, I placed an order for an exorbitant amount of underwear on the 2(x)ist website (they were having a New Year’s sale, and it was the only brand I had recalled hearing much about).

Since I didn’t know much about underwear fit and my personal preferences, I ordered it all. Boxer briefs, briefs, jock-briefs, jocks, bikinis, and trunks in a mix of cotton and various poly-blends (it really was an insane order…). Having tried them for a few weeks now, I tend to gravitate towards the boxer briefs, trunks, and briefs. These are definitely a bit more conservative, and for getting my toes wet, much more comfortable. Also as a bigger guy (~6’2’’, a 36 waist, and solid 250lbs), I prefer a little support and the comfort of knowing I’m not hanging out in all the wrong places…

Which leads to this. A classically-trained pianist by night, and Immunologist by day writing for an underwear blog (folks, they truly are for everyone). I’m looking forward to starting this journey and sharing my experiences with the readers. I’ll give you the good and the bad, and look forward to suggestions. There are a lot of underwear out there, and I’ve got a few years worth to catch up on.

Todd Sanfield provided me with these undies to review. The only time I usually wear trunks or boxer briefs is when I am getting ready to hit the gym. I like the extra coverage and support that they give when I work out. It is very hard for me to find a trunk that I would be comfortable wearing all day, however, my search is over!

Pros: Plenty of coverage with a roomy pouch and Classy design and colors

Cons: Leg opening tend to ride up

UNB John’s recommendation:

This is the third pair of undies that I have reviewed from Todd Sanfield’s Essentials Collection, and I purposefully waited to review these trunks for last. I am usually not a big trunk fan, however, I really liked the jock and the briefs so wanted to give these a chance. The fabric again is amazing and the color is super sexy. These also have a nice roomy pouch and I never found myself having to “readjust” during the day. The elegant detailing is also just icing on the cake when it comes to these amazing undies.

When I first put these trunks on, the fabric was so comfortable and the coverage was great. The waistband is simple and comfortable as well. I also like the fact that the sizing and care tags are screen printed on and not an actual tag. There is a small, black logo tag with a small wrap around fabric band that just adds a little extra “pop” to the design as well.

As I wore these trunks, I did notice that the leg openings did ride up a little in the back. I have a bigger behind so this is something that I experience with many shorter cut trunks so I was halfway expecting to have that happen. Even though they did ride up a little, I never felt like it was distracting or annoying in any way as I have experienced with other trunks, and the coverage on these was still amazing and never felt like my booty was hanging out of them.

Final Thoughts:

I am not a huge trunk cut fan, but these trunks by Todd Sanfield might just make me a believer in them. Sexy and elegant, these fit amazing. They are just tight enough to show off that booty and support and enhance your package upfront. Great to wear under a pair of dress pants for work, or just wear around the house.

Todd Sanfield provided me with these undies to review. I love a good jock, and not one that is just sexy, but one that truly fits and is comfortable to wear. Seems like a simple request, but I have reviewed many jocks and that is not always the case. However, the Todd Sanfield Essentials Collection Jockstrap is the best jockstrap that I have in my underwear drawer right now.

Pros: Comfortable straps and waistband, roomy pouch and Classy design and colors

Cons: I don’t really have any… I wish I had this jock in every color!

UNB John’s recommendation:

I am a huge jockstrap fan. If you looked at my underwear drawer, it is probably the style that I have the most of; however, it is hard to find one that is sexy and yet comfortable enough to wear all day and for all different types of occasions. When I first looked at this jock, the detailing again caught my eye. The straps are flexible and soft to the touch, the subtle logo on the leg straps and waistband create this elegant look and styling. Many times jocks that are comfortable are boring and the jocks that are fun sexy are just plain uncomfortable. Todd Sanfield has done an amazing job at creating a jock that is both functional and sexy!

The first time I wore this jock I could tell this was something different from any other jock that I had tried on before. It was soft and stretchy, but held its shape. The leg straps are soft and I never got that feeling that they were digging into my butt checks or back of my thighs. The pouch fit perfect and did an awesome job of supporting and enhancing my package.

Much like the briefs, these have moved to the top of the pile when it comes to jockstraps in my underwear drawer. The simple sexy look to the detailing and the fact that I can not only wear these all day, but would also be great for the gym or being active.

Final Thoughts:

Whether you are looking for your first jockstrap to try or if you are a seasoned jockstrap expert, you will not be disappointed with this purchase. The minimalistic design and the superior fit will be enough for you to want wear this jock all the time… even to bed!

Todd Sanfield provided me with these undies to review. It is not every day that you get to try an entire collection for an underwear designer that you have wanted to try for a long time, but I got just that opportunity. Todd Sanfield is a designer from Detroit and his collections have interested me for a couple of years now, so when I had the opportunity to review his whole Essentials Collection, I jumped at the opportunity

Pros: Soft Lenzing Modal Fabric, Perfect Fit, Classy design and colors

Cons: The pouch was a little small

UNB John’s recommendation:

This was the first pair that I wanted to review from this collection. I am a huge briefs fan and these looked amazing. Todd sent us the entire collection in red, which I think is just a sexy color for underwear anyways so I was hooked right away. I also noticed the detail that have been put into the design of these undies, from the overall construction of these undies to the shiny embroidered logo on the waistband, these are just an amazing pair of simple and sexy undies.

When I tried these on, the first thing I noticed was the fabric combination. It was soft and stretchy but it also held it shape and did not ride up. They were comfortable to wear all day. One problem that I usually have with briefs is having enough coverage in the back. I have a bigger behind, and these provided me with the perfect amount of coverage. They have a nice pouch around the front, which it wish was a little bigger, but overall it was not enough of a complaint to make me not love these undies. The design and logo on the waistband is subtle and elegant as well.

Since the first time wearing these, I can’t seem to get enough. These are comfortable enough to wear all day to work, but sexy enough to put on before going out at night. I love the simple yet sexy red color, and I can easily say these have moved to the top of my underwear drawer when it comes to my “got to” briefs.

Final Thoughts:

If you are looking for a comfortable pair of briefs that are simple yet sexy, these are totally worth checking out. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you can bet that these will be the pair I am wearing for that romantic night out!

Comfortable Club provided the Men’s Bliss Modal Trunk with Fly for review.

Rating: 8.6/10

  • Daily Fit: 10/10
  • Sizing: 8/10
  • Construction: 8/10
  • Styling: 7/10
  • Daily Performance: 10/10


Pros: The pair fits amazing, like a second skin. The fabric is super soft against your skin keeping you comfortable all day long. The pair includes a fly that is a top down style so it makes it look different.

Cons: The pair is fairly plain looking, just one solid color. There isn’t a distinct waistband which some people may not like. Not much of a pouch for people.

This is the first time I have ever worn a pair of underwear from Comfortable Club and I must say I was excited. The Men’s Bliss Modal Trunks with Fly were super soft when I pulled them out of the package. This pair is similar to what I enjoy wearing. I am a big fan of trunks so I was excited to try a new brand. I loved the Malibu Blue color as it is bright stylish.

I sort of did everything while wearing this pair of underwear. I went to work, ran errands, relaxed. Through everything put this pair through…they held up nicely and were comfortable. The pair stayed comfortable all day long, feeling smooth and soft against my skin.

This pair is made really well. The fabric is made of 92% Beechwood Modal and 8% Elastane. The trunks also feature a horizontal fly. It makes it easy to get your “junk” out quickly. The horizontal fly also adds a unique look to the pair. The stitching on the fabric is extremely soft as well…which makes you not even notice you are really wearing the underwear. The underwear also features a Modal covered tagless waistband.

I got size small and they fit me perfectly. I can wear small or medium depending on the underwear and the pair fit amazing. It hugs my bubble butt comfortably. The pair doesn’t have a real pouch but the fabric is flexible that you can fill it out and still be comfortable.

Overall I loved this pair of underwear. It is extremely soft against my skin and stays in place all day long no matter what you put it through. The waistband is soft and comfortable against your skin.  One cool thing they offer as a company is a 100-day guarantee. If you don’t like the pair, they will exchange or refund your purchase within 100 days of your purchase.

Rating: 7.8/10

• Daily Fit: 7/10

• Sizing: 7/10

• Construction: 8/10

• Styling: 10/10

• Daily Performance: 7/10

Pros: The waistband is awesome and I love the style of the fabric.

Cons: Inner separation brief is great for lift, but not sure I could wear it all day.

UNB John’s recommendation: I would recommend these if you are looking for a sexy pair of trunks to wear out. That also, provide a nice profile on a hot summer night.

This is the first pair of King Style that I have had the opportunity to review. I actually got another pair in this same package to review so be looking for that review as well.  The first thing that I noticed when I took these out of the package was the fun waistband. I love wearing your non-traditional brands. That when people see the logo waistband they are intrigued. The other thing I noticed was the fun fabric. The fabric has a slight sheer striping to it. Which makes these a super sexy pair of undies that you wouldn’t mind showing off.

The pouch is also unique. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it at first. After trying another pair of “separate pouch” trunks, I thought I had an idea. When you put these on, you will notice a hole in the pouch which almost looks like a built in cock-ring. Which can give you lift and nice profile. But it was a little tight for “everything” to fit though. so after a little research, I found that you are just supposed to put your shaft though the hole and separate your shaft from your balls. This was a lot more comfortable and was a unique feeling for sure. It took me a couple of times wearing these to get used to that feeling. The front pouch also has just a flap of fabric over where your shaft sits. Which was nice as it added for movement over the day. As you went through your day these undies almost catered to the size and position of your shaft. This was also very convenient when using the restroom. Just lift the flap and you are ready to go. I am sure this could be convenient in other ways as well. 😉

Overall I really like these as a night out pair of undies. I am not sure the pouch would be something I would be able to wear all day or to the gym. But if you are looking for a sexy pair of trunks that have a bit of uniqueness to them, these are for you. If you are looking to try something a little different and have an open mind, I think you would enjoy these as well.

I love when a pair of undies can be used for multiple purposes. Like wearing a jockstrap for the fun and sexiness but yet have it be functional at the gym. I had the opportunity to review a pair of undies that I would not only wear everyday under a pair of jeans.  But wouldn’t mind laying out by the pool in these guys either.

I had the opportunity to review the 2(x)ist Black Light SLIQ micro truck in a size medium. I have to admit, I was a little confused when I first opened these up. They looks like a sexy pair of square cut trunks and heading into winter. I was a little concerned that I wasn’t going to be able to give these a fair review. But as soon as I took them out of the package and tried them on, I was SOLD. The fit is amazing, the fabric is amazing, the overall construction is amazing. These are just an all-around great pair of undies.

The fabric on these is a 88% polyester 12% spandex blend. The polyester gives them a little bit of a sheer look to them.  Which is what made me think they were swimwear when I first got them.  The spandex adds for a great amount of stretch and movement. This fabric is lightweight but yet seems very tough and would hold up to even the craziest gym workout. They design of this trunk is very minimalist with a screen printed logo on the left hip and pattern on the fabric extends all the way up through the waistband. The inside of the waistband has a great logo design and also is very soft. The pouch is great as well. It roomy and I had no issues with feeling cramped at all during the day. The low-rise cut is awesome and fit perfectly below the hip, right where a good pair of trunks should!

The color/pattern is kind of hard to describe, but it wouldn’t be my first chose. It is a very random almost “tie-dye” look to it. I wasn’t a huge fan of it, at first but it is growing on me for sure.


  • Great fit and true to size
  • Great construction and attention to detail
  • Great fabric for everyday wear, stayed in place all day!


  • Not a big fan of the color. These look great but would love to see more pattern options.

99134(2)CandyMan has always been a company that had intrigued me. They are never shy about pushing the limits when it comes to new cuts, styles and fabrics. Some people might say that can take it a bit too far sometimes. If you are one of those skeptics, don’t count this brand out so quickly.

I had the opportunity to review the Modern Varsity Brief in blue size medium. This pair was furnished by Macondo Trading. I have to say I was happy this pair got sent my way. This is not your typical brief, but if you are looking for a pair of undies that are sexy yet comfortable.  These are worth the look. From the clean cut waistband to the contrasting florescent piping around the legs to the little cut outs on either side of the pouch.  CandyMan cut no corners when it comes to details with these briefs.

These briefs are made from 96% Nylon and 4% elastane Sheer stretch mesh which is completely see through. It has a great wide elastic logo waistband that has a metallic silver look to it. I love a good pair of mesh undies. I think they are something sexy for sure. What I like about these is they are comfortable to wear as well as sexy. These will not leave anything up to the imagination. The front pouch is very roomy and keeps everything in place like a good brief should do. The cut-outs on either side of the pouch add for a little extra stretch in the front as well if you need it. The fabric is light and airy and almost feels like you are going commando under whatever you are wear over top.

The one down fall with these briefs that I could find is that like most sheer fabrics.  These are undies that should be cared for. I have had similar fabrics get caught in zippers of paints while in the washer and rip a hold in fabric.  So just be cautious when washin’. I would also not recommend wearing these all day. I did and they performed better than a lot of my other mesh undies; however I didn’t feel like they moved as well with me like some of my other undies do. BUT if you are looking for a sexy pair of undies that will add that little extra element of sexy to your night out, these are the undies for you! Sexy and functional for a great price!

If you have read any of my past +reviews, you know that I love trying new brands, and I am a HUGE fan of jockstraps. So when I was told I was going to be reviewing the ManView Campus City Boy jockstrap. Jockstrap was  furnished by Macondo Trading.  I was very excited. ManView is a brand I had heard a lot of good things about, but I didn’t own anything that I had released. I have to say that I have been missing out. I love a good jockstrap.  When you add in some sexy contrasting colors and that little bit of a unique look, it is hard for me to go wrong.

I reviewed the ManView Campus City Boy Jockstrap in Green/Orange in a size medium. One of the first things that caught my eye with this jockstrap is that just looking at it from the front.  It has the look of a brief. With most jocks you just have a pouch and the waist band. ManView added these extra side panels which add a whole new look and feel to what you typically think of when it comes to a jock.  This panel extends all the way around to the back of the jock.  Which I wasn’t sure if I would like at first.  But found out quickly, this was something that I am going to continue to look for when it comes to a jockstrap that I can wear all day every day. I hate it when I decide to wear a jock and the waist band rides up on my back advertising to the whole world that I am wear a jock. What I like about the Campus City Boy jock is that with the extra fabric just below the waistband.  IIt doesn’t seem to ride up and offers that little extra bit of coverage.

The fabric on these is 94% cotton and 6% elastane. This is a great fabric combination if you want to wear these all day. The front pouch I did find to be a bit small, but wasn’t a deal breaker for me at all. The cotton/elastane fabric allowed it to stretch and contour to my body and was very comfortable all day. I love the color combination of these are well. The color is perfect for Halloween and I can’t wait to wear these out next weekend. You can bet I will be buying the red and blue ones as well for all of those patriotic summer holiday’s next year.


  • Great fit and true to size
  • Great coverage, yet keeps the integrity of fun of wearing a jockstrap
  • Great fabric for everyday wear, even to the gym!

If you have read any of my past reviews (I know it has been a while). You will know that I am a sucker for a great pair of colorful undies.  Something that makes you feel sexy and not defiantly not a afraid to show off. As I was browsing the new collection by Clever these were a pair that I just had to have. They are bright fun and being from Clever, I knew they would be super comfy.

I had the opportunity to review the Clever Sauris Boxer in the coral color, size medium. I have to say that clever delivered and then some with these. When I first saw these online I was instantly attracted to the bright coral color with contrasting blue and green waistband. So before they even came I had pretty high expectations. These came with a few other pairs that I got to review, but I was instantly drawn to these. When I first opened the package I noticed that not only are these bright in color.  But they have almost a mesh like fabric which gives it that little extra punch of sexy. I have tried mesh undies before and haven’t always been a fan, but the fabric was very soft and very stretchy. The waistband is you standard 1.5 inch and is blue in color with the Clever logo in bright green. They have a thin blue piping around the front pouch and everything is topped off with a bright green stitching.

I have worn these a couple times already and they have defiantly moved to my “favorite undies” side of my underwear drawer. They are great to wear all day and for pretty much anything that I can think of. They held up great for me at the gym and were great to wear to work. The fabric is very flexible and moves with you no matter what you are doing. The front pouch is very roomy and didn’t feel like it was crowding my package at all. I also thought that these did a great job of showing off my butt.

The only concern that I might have with these undies is the fabric. I love everything about it, but it feels very thin and I am not sure how long it will hold up. I have washed these multiple times already and so far the fabric has held up, so I hope it continues that way.

I have to say that I am really pleased with what Clever has been doing with their new collection. I know I have been out of the review cycle for a little while. It is nice to see a company that can take a solid color and make it fun and sexy. That is exactly what they did with the Morelo Latin Brief.

I had the opportunity to review the Clever Morelo Latin Brief in coral. It is in a size Medium and for being a brief, I thought this was a good choice. I pretty much will wear anything when it comes to styles of underwear, but the brief is not always at the top of my list. So I was a little apprehensive when I first saw these. The color is great. I think coral is my new favorite color when it comes to undies. But was not sure exactly how these would fit. I usually wear a size Medium across the board. When I first took these out, but mind went directly to the, these look a little small.  I better spend an extra 30 minutes on the treadmill if I want to fit into these. But once I put them on, I was really surprised.

The fabric is a 48% polyester 48% Nylon and 4% spandex mix. So they are super stretchy and it’s like these undies just conformed to my body style. The bright coral color with the blue stitching and piping along the hips was fun and sexy. With the way these fit, they took my butt and gave it a nice shape to the point where even I was like “DAMN”. The front pouch is a little tight as well and that would be the only reason why I wouldn’t recommend these for an “all day” or gym pair of undies.  but if you are going out for the night and want to wear something that adds that little extra bit of sexy under a pair of jeans or shorts, these are totally a pair worth looking into. The waistband is black with a contrasting Clever logo. The waistband is very soft and comfortable.

2241 (1)Clever really has stepped up its game when it comes to finding great fabric and fun colors and patterns. I and usually up for anything that is brightly colored weather it is a solid color or a pattern. When I found out that I was going to have the opportunity to review the Clever House Boxer. This pattern had me intrigued.

I am reviewing the Clever House boxer in a size medium.  I don’t think I can say enough great things about this pair of undies. They are fun and bright, they fit great and they can be worn for almost every occasion. From the wide and crazy geometric pattern to the solid blue wide elastic logo waistband.  These are a pair that I think everyone should have in the underwear drawer. So let’s start at the top.

The wise logo waistband is super comfortable and soft. I usually don’t like wider waistbands, but this one didn’t bother me at all. The waistband sat perfectly on my waist and wasn’t uncomfortable at all. The main  fabric is a 90% polyester 10% spandex microfiber blend.  It has a little bit of a shiny element to it, and is very comfortable. It stays in place and provides an amazing body defining fit. The front pouch is very roomy and with the stretch fabric, it moves with you all day. The way these are stitched in the back also give your butt a defining lift which for most guys is a defiant plus. Now to the pattern… Even I thought this might be a little crazy for me, but I really like it. The geometric pattern is fun and with all the contrasting colors. It makes for a great look that is fun without being obnoxious. I have worn these a couple times now and have loved every minute I have had these on. The one thing that I would recommend against, since they are a 90% polyester blend.  They aren’t the best to wear while you are at the gym. The fabric doesn’t breath a well as a cotton blend would.  Once you get out of the shower, these are my go to night out on the town pair of boxer briefs,

PROS:2241 (2)

curb-active-brief-campaign1-webOne of the best parts about working with UNB is exploring brands that I may not have ever tried had I not had this opportunity. I am by no means a brand snob when it comes to undies. If they fit well and look sexy, that’s all it takes for me.

A few months back I was browsing the website and came across Curbwear. They are based in the UK, but was really interested in their branding. The first collection that I saw was their IDENTITY line. If you have not seen this, you need to. I thought this was such a clever idea I just had to learn more about this company. I got in touch with the owner, who is just as awesome as their undies. I asked if he would be interested in answering a few questions about Curbwear and the underwear industry in general. Here is what he had to say!

What is the one thing that you would like customers to know about Curbwear?
Perfection.  I will keep improving and perfecting every small detail.  It’s the British in me not to give up until it’s right 😉  People work hard for their money and deserve a product that represents it’s value.

Where do you get the inspiration behind your styles, cuts and collections?
Inspiration normally comes from rebelling or rethinking how something is done.  I wouldn’t say I am a rebel, I’m a little bit quiet in nature, which I think puts my imagination into overload! The vast mix of talent in London is also a great pool of inspiration.

What makes Curbwear different for all the other men’s underwear brands?
It’s a genuine brand! I love designing something original and with perfection.  I know perfection is sometimes a dirty word, but I can’t help it! Everything in the product has been considered – a smooth waistband, non-itch care label and a roomy pouch.

Where do you see Curbwear (or the underwear industry in general) going in the next year or two?
The World recession got many companies looking backwards at how they can cut cost – switching their cotton quality, producing more basic lines and moving production to countries such as China.  CURB is moving in the other way.  I focus more on making something last then the throw away fashion factor.

Your Models look amazing but, how does Curbwear take the “normal guy” body style into consideration SELFIE-ACTIVEwhen designing underwear?
CURB includes selfie pics online to show how the product fits on regular guys alongside the model shots.  The underwear is made to to fit someone with a similar shape to the model Ben… give or take a pie or two 😉

What can we expect in the near future from CURB?
Different, daring, cheeky and suggestive!

If there is one thing that you could change about the men’s underwear industry what would it be and why?
I kind of get embarrassed when I see a brands blurb that their product will give confidence and deliver luxury to the modern man. It just screams of a dated sale pitch and lack of imagination.  Standing by your statements on design and quality is important – everyone deserves a product that matches its value.

Is there anything else that you would like our readers to know about you or CURB?
A lot of people have ideas for products or dream of being an underwear model.  Whatever you want, get in touch!

So, after I interviewed Kevin, I really got to thinking about the men’s underwear industry as a whole and what he said really made since.  I think it is a breath of fresh air to see a company standing behind their products and offering a sense of truth to what it has to offer.

Kevin has been great to work with and it just goes to show that a great company comes from great leaders. CURB has a brand loyal customer in me for sure!

Kevin also sent a few pairs for me to review, so keep your eyes out for both of those coming in the next few weeks.

I am reviewing the Gregg Homme Rodeo Boxer Brief in Red from Gregg Homme’s new collection. I have tried a few other pairs of undies by Gregg Homme in the past but it had been a while, so I was really excited to see what his new collection was all about. When I first got these in the mail, the first thing that really caught my eye was the fun plaid pattern. When I took them out of the package I got another surprise. They are made of a somewhat sheer material, which I really liked. It provides just enough transparency to show off what you are rockin’ without being too reveling.  It totally added an element of “sexy” that I have come to expect from Gregg Homme. This whole line comes in Blue, Yellow and Red. You can also get this style in trunks, jock, string or a thong. All are VERY sexy

I wore the Rodeo Boxer Briefs to work for a day and I can honestly say that they did a great job.  The material is very thin, but it feels very strong.  The waistband was very comfortable as well. The waistband is a standard 1” elastic band. However that is where it stops being “standard” It has a fun brown and black southern pattern to it, which go right along with the styling and pattern of the brief itself. The one thing that I didn’t really care for was the opening around the legs. They were a little tight for my muscular thighs and I found that they did cut into my leg a little bit after I had been wearing them for a little while. I also noticed that they didn’t stay in place really well and leg openings did ride up a little into my crotch area. With that, the material actually stretched and I did not get the feeling that my boys were being squished. For the most part they wore great during all daywear. I did switch out of them before hitting the gym. I am not sure how they would hold up. These are a pair that I will save for date night for sure.

The pair that I got from Gregg Homme to review was a size Medium, which is what I usually wear. The Rodeo Boxer Brief fit very true to size. I didn’t have any issues with the waist being to tight or a lack of coverage. I have a little bit of a bubble butt and these fit perfect. The only thing I would comment on sizing is again the leg openings. They were a little tight for me, but then again I have more muscular thighs then most guys my size. I would say if you are looking at buying a pair of these, you can stick with what you usually get and you will be happy. They were roomy in the front and fit great around the waist.

So there are a lot of things that I really liked about this pair after wearing them for the day. First the overall look of these.  I have a little bit of a thing for country boys, so this I thought the pattern and styling was spot on. I love the fact that the material is so lightweight and sheer, yet doesn’t feel like you could put your finger through it, if you pushed hard enough. The waistband is comfortable and it adds to the styling of the undies. I didn’t like the fact that they legs were not cut to fit my body style. I think if they would have added a little more elastic “stretch” to them, I would have liked these even more.

Overall, I really did like these undies. Gregg Homme is a great brand and I have enjoyed all the pairs that I have every reviewed from them, and this pair is no different. These are going to the top of my undies drawer when it comes to date night. They are sexy and fun. They are not over the top crazy but yet fun enough to provide just enough spice to your night.


  • They have a fun and sexy pattern and materials
  • Great coverage and they fit true to size
  • Waistband is well incorporated into the overall style of the undies, plus it is super comfy.


  • Leg opening is a little tight for guy with bigger or muscular thighs
  • They tend to ride up after wearing for a long period of time.

Overall Rating:

  • Daily Fit: 8
  • Sizing: 10
  • Construction and Materials: 10
  • Styling: 10
  • Daily Performance: 7
  • Overall: 9

undies-change2So I was sitting at my desk the other day thinking about how men’s underwear has changed so much since I have joined this site back in 2008. From cuts and styles, to colors and brands, the men’s underwear industry has been turned up-side-down in the last 5 years. So, I decided to start a conversation with the readers of UNB and see what matters to you when it comes to choosing just the right pair of undies.

For me, style is where it starts. I know what cuts I like (there aren’t many that I don’t) and what looks good on me. I think this is something that ranks at the top of the list of important things for most guys. There is nothing worse than getting a pair of undies that you don’t feel comfortable in. If they don’t provide enough coverage, or too much coverage, it can really make or break a guy’s take on a pair of undies.

From there, I look at color. I know most guys don’t really care about the color or what the underwear looks like, but this is a big one for me. I match a lot of my undies with my mood and personality. Having some fun and frisky pairs can help enhance your mode, whatever that might be. I can honestly say that my underwear drawer is a direct reflection of my personality. I think that is what a lot of guy’s strive for, but most don’t. Break out of the white, grey and black colors of the past and add a little color!

Fit and Fabric are also up there on my list. I have a wide range of fits and fabrics and it really does make a good pair of underwear. Some guys miss the mark with this however. For example. I have a friend that was just getting into undies. He wanted to get a jockstrap to wear to the gym. He ordered one, and when it come it was mesh and see through and not a jock that would be apocopate for the gym AT ALL. He bought a jock he thought was colorful and thought he would wear it. He still does but just not to the gym. Lesson being, know what you want and when you are going to wear it. The more versatile the better in my book.

The last things on my list is brand.  For me a brand name doesn’t say much for me. Of course I have my favorite brands, but they are my favorite not because they have spent tons of money on marketing, but because they meet my list of expectations. Surprisingly some of my favorite pairs of undies are from brands that aren’t mainstream. I think a lot of guys miss out on opportunities to try great undies because they get tied into the marketing.

So what is important to you when it comes to buying your undies? What things to do take into consideration before you checkout? If you aren’t sure, make a list… it doesn’t have to be a physical, write it on a piece of paper list, but think about what is important to you when it comes to find that perfect pair of undies, and stick to it. Everyone’s list will be a little different, but that is why everyone’s underwear drawer is different. We are all unique and I think underwear should be a direct reflection of that.

Feel free to leave your list in the comments below, we would love to hear from you!

Don’t get me wrong, I love to review undies, but when I had the chance to review this undershirt, I did not want to miss out. I have had my eye on this shirt for the last year or so and had heard great things about it. A shirt that is comfortable, can help improve your health and will help you look better, I am IN!!

The Equmen Core Precision Undershirt is not just your typical body shaping undershirt. This undershirt has been proven to not only make you look great, but improve posture, reduce back pain, control body temperature and enhance over all blood flow. Now, I had my doubts, but working in a pretty physically demanding job all of these attributes sounded too good to be true.

I reviewed the Equimen Crew Neck Core Precision Undershirt in a size medium. When my shirt arrived the first thing that I noticed was the built in Physiotherapy. This is Equmen’s built in seamless support system that helps support the areas of your body to improve posture and reduce back pain. I also noticed the streamline look of the undershirt. The fabric was also something that stood out. The polyester nylon spandex mix was stretchy but durable.

When I put this shirt on, the first thing that I noticed was how hard it was to get positioned correctly on the body. This is not a “slip it on quick” type shirt. I think it took me a good couple of minutes to get the shirt on and positioned correctly. However, once I got the shirt on, I could tell that it was going to be something worth wearing. I wore this shirt for the first time to work. It did help with the added support and controlling my body temperature and I did see a slight improvement in my back pain at the end of the day. This shirt kept me cool and lived up to everything that it claimed it would. Taking off the shirt was almost as much of a task as putting it on as well. I have since worn this shirt under dress shirts to help me look a little trimmer, and to the gym. This is a great all around shirt and if they were not so pricy, I would have a drawer full of them. The $99 price tag is the biggest drawback.

I would recommend this undershirt for those people that have posture and back problems or work in a very physically demanding job. If you are just looking for a good undershirt this is a good, but pricy option. This style come in a singlet, v-neck or crew neck cuts and come in white, black, and Slate (grey).


  • Great Support
  • Very Comfortable
  • Great for wicking moisture and controlling body temperature


  • Price ($99 for the style I reviewed)
  • Hard to put on and take off

This shirt was provided by and can be purchased for $99.

Petit-Q is a brand that UNB has done a couple of write-ups on over the last year. They recently developed their own line of skimpy and sexy underwear. I was sent the invisible boxer in a size medium to review.

I first have to say that if I walked into a store or was shopping online, I don’t think I would have picked these out for myself. I am all about skimpy undies and I even love me a good thong, but for some reason the look of these undies and myself did not hit it off.  These undies are very low cut undie and are meant to feel and looks like you are wearing nothing. There isn’t too much to these undies either.  The material is a nude color mesh with a thin elastic waistband. They are designed to sit a good 3 to 4 inches below your waist.  They do feature a nice front pouch that enhances the size and shape of your package. There isn’t a lot of material coving the back either. I would say the cut is more like a bikini cut than anything else that I have seen.

One thing that I do like about the Petit-Q invisible boxer is that it does exactly what you would by these for. They have a very sexy, and unique cut. I don’t think this is something that I could wear to work or the gym, nor do I think I would want to, but they are perfect for adding a little extra spice to the bedroom. These would be a great Valentine’s Day gift for any man in life.


  1. Achievement – They achieve exactly what you would buy these undies for.
  2. Front Pouch – The front pouch is roomy and very comfy. Probably one of the more comfortable pouches I have tried in a while.


  1. Color – I would have loved to seen these in black or red.  I think a little color would have attracted me a little more to these.
  2. Very low cut – This is just a personal preference of mine. I like mine undies to sit just below the waist, not around my hips and pelvis.


Fit: 4.0
Materials: 3.0
Construction: 3.0

Daily Wear: 2.0

You can pick a pair of these up through Petit-Q’s website for around $34 USD. If you are looking for something a little more sexy check out the other styles that Petit-Q has to offer.

Maclovia is one of those brands that I had never heard of before, but it is one that is going to stick in my mind. From the moment that I saw the look of these undies to the moment that I tried them one, I LOVED THEM.

UNB sent me the Maclovia Platinum Teal PT339 trunk in a size small to review. One of the first things that I noticed was the bold choice in color. These trunks are white with blocks of navy and heather grey color. They are very bold but don’t overwhelm. The trunk featured a closed fly with a very roomy front pouch. The waistband is a 1.5 inch silver metallic material with the Maclovia logo. The fabric is amazing. It is soft and provides enough stretch for great movement and all-day wear.

These are a trunk style cut, so they are going to be a little shorter in the inseam. They sit just below the waist, which is exactly where I like it. The fit is pretty true. I usually wear a medium (32 waist), but these smalls fit. They were a little tight, but not enough for me to send them back. I did notice they did shrink a little after the first time I washed them.


  1. The Look – If you are looking for a bold but not to flashy pair of undies, these and the other Maclovia styles are for you.
  2. The Fabric – The fabric is soft yet sturdy and provides enough stretch for all-day, everyday wear.


  1. The Waistband – The waistband is pretty standard, but I noticed that it is pretty stiff and doesn’t offer a lot of give. If you get a pair that doesn’t fit right, that could be uncomfortable.


Fit: 4.0

You can pick a pair of these up through Maclovia’s website for around $18.75, and while you are their I would check out some of their other styles as well.  Lots of great looking undies; and if you don’t see anything you like, keep checking back as according to their website they are providing new styles quarterly.

Maclovia provided these undies for review.

Hey everyone it is great to be back reviewing again.  I have been super busy over the last year or so, and been helping out behind the scenes here at UNB. It is good to be giving a helpful insight into some of the new styles and brands coming out in men’s underwear for 2012. I love trying new brands and this brand has me very interested.

I am reviewing the Luis & Juke Pink Jimmy Trunk in a size medium. This is the first pair that I have ever had the chance to wear from this particular brand and I have to say it won’t be my last. If you are not familiar with Luis & Juke, they are from across the pond in the UK. They don’t have a ton of different cuts, but the colors and patterns are enough to keep this brand looking fresh.

The first thing that I noticed about these undies was the bright pink fabric and the purple waistband. I love bright colors and patterns and these did not disappoint. When I opened up the package I saw that they looked a little bigger then what most mediums do and after I tried them out I can say that they do run a little bigger then normal. I am a 32 waist and the mediums fit 32-34. I would recommend that if you are on the fence about what size to get, go smaller. The design of these undies is great. The bright pink offset with the purple waistband and purple stitching is one of my favorite color combinations. If pink and purple aren’t your colors of choice, don’t worry these come in other colors as well.

The material is pretty standard.  It is a 95% cotton and 5% elastane. This combo gives it just the right amount of comfort and stretch to stay in place and makes these undies perfect for all day, everyday wear. The waistband is a standard one-inch and doesn’t dig in or pinch like some undies that I have tried.  The purple waistband also features the Luis & Juke logo in orange. Not sue why they choose an orange logo with pink and purple but that is not too big of a deal for me.  These also have a closed fly, so if you are a guy that like a fly in the front, these are not for you.

These undies fit great and look great. They are a trunk cut so they have a little shorter inseam then a boxer brief but provide enough coverage all the way around. They fit right at the waist, which is great as well.  If you are looking for something that sit a little lower on the waist I would look else wear.


  • Color and “flashy factor”
  • Comfortable for all day everyday wear no matter what you are doing


  • Sizes run a little big
  • Orange Logo on the waistband doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the design.

Gigo is one of my favorite underwear brands.  They do a lot of fun and funky things when it comes to men’s underwear. They have a great selection of colors, patterns, and cuts, that will satisfy any guys underwear taste. For traditional cut and conservative colors, to wild and crazy cut and patterns, Gigo is one of the most versatile underwear companies out there today!

I know I was cheering for the USA this year when the World Cup took over our world this summer. But no matter what team you were cheering for, Gigo made a pair of undies for you.  This summer Gigo introduced a special edition collection in honor of the World Cup.  They had a pair of undies for all the major teams, including Canada, England, Argentina, Brasil, USA, Mexico, Netherland, France, Itally and Germany.  So no matter what corner of the globe you were cheering from, there was a pair of undies to match.

Even though I was cheering for the USA, I was really intrigued with the Dark Blue England Boxers.  They just caught my eye and I just had to get my hand on a pair. Lucky for me, I have connections!!

I received the Gigo Dark Blue England boxers in a size medium. They have a navy blue waistband with a gray Gigo logo which looks great peeking over the waistband of your shorts or jeans. The undies are made out of a cotton/spandex blend, which is pretty standard in underwear. It is the right amount of cotton to make the undies feel well constructed, but that little extra spandex allows the undies to move. The fabric is a dark navy blue. On the left side of these undies, Gigo has screen printed a modern looking England flag. It starts just left of the pouch and continues around the back. It really does look amazing, and the contrast between the navy and the White and Red flag is awesome.

I was very excited to try these one. Gigo is known for fitting a little on the small side, so if you decided to get a pair for yourself, check the size chart, and if you aren’t sure, go to the next size bigger. The pouch was pretty standard and fit great. There was plenty of room and I didn’t feel cramped or squished. The waistband is also very comfortable. The care tag on the back of the waistband was kind of annoying though. The only thing I didn’t like about this pair of Gigo, is that the fabric is meant to stretch, however, since the left side is screen printed all the way around, the screen printing didn’t allow the fabric to stretch naturally. So the leg opening on the screen printed side, felt tighter then the other side. It didn’t bother me enough where I couldn’t wear them, but it did take some time to get used to.

Overall I liked these Gigo, like the rest of the Gigo I own. I think there are a few things that could have been thought out a little better, but  nothing that would discourage me from buying Gigo again!

Unique is something I have never shied away from when it comes to underwear.  I love when a brand does something unique and different.  Life Iz Pantz is a brand that has not only taken unique to a new level, but versatility as well.

Life Iz Pantz is a company that has been around for a short while but has recently started to catch on. They offer a one size fits all line of knit men’s underwear that’s available in a variety of colorful stripe patterns.  Life Iz Pantz tells us you can wear these undies for almost every occasion.  They can be worn as underwear, beachwear, clubwear, and just about anywhere you might feel the need to be sexy and show off a little color.

Instead of names for their styles, numbers are assigned to them. I received a number 01 style for review.  It is a very bright combination of white, red, navy blue, greens, yellow, and orange strips that will make just about anyone’s head turn.  In total, Life Iz Pantz comes in about 13 different color patterns.  Life Iz Pantz only offers one size.  They recommend their undies for guys with a size 33” waist or smaller.  I am a 32” and they fit amazingly!

My Life Iz Pantz arrived in the mail, shipped in about a 2” by 2” package, and I immediately thought, “There is no way I am going to get these over my left thigh, let alone my waist.” I slipped them on and, sure enough, as they say, they stretched and molded to my exact body shape.  One thing not found in these undies is a fly or even a tag.  I did notice that I really had to examine the underwear to figure out if I was putting them on correctly.  You will find some different stitching in the pouch, guiding you as to which side is the front.

The knit fabric is very comfortable and I found these to be absolutely amazing to wear.  I have worn these not only for everyday wear, but also for lying in the sun and gym wear. They held up perfectly.  I was a little concerned when I first wore them to the gym as the stitching doesn’t appear to be that great, but they held up fine and I haven’t had any issues with the stitching or seams ripping out at all.

Overall, I really enjoyed these undies. They are unique, stylish, and versatile…three of the most important things that I look for in a pair of underwear.

You can purchase Life Iz Pantz directly from their website.  They offer many different color patterns and each pair is going to cost you 24.67 EUR or about $33 USD.  Their website also offers an eye candy section which I would recommend checking out.

Life Iz Pantz supplied me with this pair to review.

Candid Underwear has always been a favorite brand of mine, so when I found out I was getting a pair of their new Houndstooth collection to review, I was very excited.  It has been a couple of months or so since I tried my first pair of Candid.  I wanted to see if my first impression of this brand lived true.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Candid as a brand, they operate under the philosophy that “men shouldn’t have to choose between comfort and style.”  They are right on when they say the look that Candid provides is chic, masculine, and fashionable.

Candid Underwear has three collections currently available and is looking at expanding even more this year.  They have a Plaid collection, the Houndstooth collection, and the Chromatic collection.  One thing I love about Candid is the way they take more well known patters like plaid and houndstooth and make them modern and fashionable again.  I think this is a trend we are starting to see more and more underwear companies turn too.

I received the yellow Houndstooth Low Rise Brief in a size medium.  When they first arrived, the first thing that caught my eye was the yellow color.  It was more of a bright gold than a true yellow, and I loved it.  It was also a nice touch how Candid tied the color and cut into the packaging.  I took them out of the package and noticed the soft feel of the fabric.  If you have read any of my other reviews, you will know that I am BIG on fabric.  It is an amazing blend of cotton and spandex, offering a nice combination of strength and stretch.

The Houndstooth comes with a white waistband with a matching yellow logo on the front.  The waist band is very comfortable and looks amazing.  I have worn these briefs to work under both jeans and dress pants and have not had a problem with them bunching or riding.  The front pouch is very roomy yet offers great support.  The cut is awesome as well.  It doesn’t ride to high on the hips and offers plenty of coverage in the rear.  The one thing I will say I didn’t care for was the back tag. The waist band is so comfortable, but I had to deal with the “itchy tag” feeling.

Overall, I really enjoyed these undies.  Candid has done a nice job of taking a traditional pattern and making them into something fun and fashionable as well as comfortable and wearable.

You can purchase Candid directly from their website.  The Houndstooth collection comes in a variety of colors like blue, green, pink, as well as the yellow.  These colors are available in either the low rise brief or a low rise trunk.  The briefs are going to run about $21.  Also, check out their Plaid and Chromatic collections to add even more style to your underwear drawer.
