Andrew Christian is probably the brand that has a chance to make designer underwear mainstream.  Usually, I really like the brand because it fits and feels great.  This pair looks great, but I did have a few issues with the pouch technology.  Those issues aside, it was a pretty good pair of underwear.  If you love pouch underwear that makes you use the pouch, then you’ll love this pair.

Like usual, the fabric is 90% Cotton and 10% Spandex.  That’s always a good combination.  I really enjoy the piping on the side.  The waistband is also comfortable with the Anti-Muffin technology.

I put these through the daily grind and I was actually a bit disappointed.  I know underwear companies these days keep putting pouches in underwear.  Frankly, I do not know why.  I find them to be terribly annoying and extremely uncomfortable.  I only know of a few companies, or pairs even, that manage to get it right.  If you have the pouch design, you need to make it so that you don’t have to use the pouch if desired.

That being said, it’s still a pretty decent pair of underwear.  Like I said before, if you like the pouch, then you’ll probably love this pair.  If you don’t like the pouch, then you won’t.  It’s all up to the wearer.
