I remember when 2(x)ist first came on the underwear scene. They quickly became one of my favorites because they were one of the first to make underwear for men that men wanted to wear. I drifted away from them in the past few years.  However, 2xist was recently on our podcast and went over some of their new lines and some of the upcoming styles.  The Neon Line gave me a good opportunity to try them out again.  I got a pair of the Neon Sports briefs size XL. The sizing fit pretty much true to size.

2xist always makes extremely well-constructed underwear. This one had a slight cosmetic fray of the seam at the leg however it wasn’t anything major with the construction.

I am a fan of briefs, so I was very happy they sent me the sports briefs.  I the pair received was Mediterranean blue.  The design with the side panel I found to be very cool.  That said, the panels occasionally stretched a little strange at times. It wasn’t anything binding or constraining, but just noticeable.

What I liked:

  • Color: glad to see they are using some bright colors. I got the blue and it’s awesome
  • The design with the pouch and construction, a really cool look

What I didn’t Like:

  • Stitching came loose near the side panel. Luckily it’s just cosmetic
  • As much as I liked the design, sometimes the pieces at the leg openings pulled a little strange at times.
