In the past week, I’ve tested 3 pair of underwear from the 2xist SLIQ (sleek) collection and, unfortunately, these are my least favorite.  In reviewing any pair of underwear, I attempt to stay very subjective and open minded; however, these were a real challenge and left me somewhat disappointed.  Typically, I find 2xist to be the leader and one of the top designers when it comes to men’s fashionable underwear that I fall in love with. These briefs simply don’t fit the bill.

Overall the briefs are well constructed and consist of the typical blend of fabrics which consists of 90% cotton and 10% Spandex.  This provides adequate support, flexibility, and comfort but these unfortunately didn’t hold up during my test. To be more specific, the seam around the bottom of the leg would not keep the brief in place and I constantly had to adjust by pulling them across by ass.  This wasn’t an issue of wrong size; I have a 31” waist and these were a medium size pair.  I have to believe that they weren’t cut properly to cover the entire backside of my buttocks as it caused the fabric to pucker from the base of my leg up to the lower hip.  Sorry 2xist, but you need to take these back to the drawing board.

However, I will acknowledge the fact that these briefs are very light weight and extremely comfortable and create a very sleek esthetic.   In all other aspects, I wasn’t disappointed with how they supported my junk, which is actually one of their signature features with the SLIQ line.  Their extreme contoured pouch offers more support and an enhanced natural profile.

In summary, I think 2xist may have to rethink their design or it could have simply been a case of a defective pair. I would have expected this to be discovered during inspection. I’m not suggesting that you totally disregard this brief but it might be something you look out for when testing out their new SLIQ line.  These briefs are available in the following colors:  Black (as shown), Sangria, Charcoal, and White.

Personal scoring as follows:

Fit: 3.0
Materials: 4.0
Construction: 3.0
Look: 3.5
Daily Wear: 4.0
Overall: 3.5

As an admirer of art, I’ve always appreciated the role that underwear has played in men’s fashion. For me personally, underwear serves as a catalyst for allowing men to present their style and fashion sense while remaining masculine and true to themselves. Since fashion is an expression of oneself, this allows men to do so privately, intimately and socially….it’s the best of all worlds!
