Anyone who owns some form of sportswear is able to attest to the name New Balance as being one that brings with it a reputation of being a leader in the sports clothing industry.  Even I have gone through several pairs of shoes and clothing from this famous manufacturer.   I was excited about trying out their underwear and was curious if the pair I was asked to review would live up to the same standards that I’ve become accustomed to with their other line of products.

The particular pair was the hip brief which is constructed from 87% Polyester and 13% Elastane materials.  These briefs felt incredible during a rigorous workout which included 30 minutes on the elliptical machine. With the additional multi-panel construction in the pouch area, the brief provided additional support for a perfect fit while keeping me dry.  New Balance advertises their underwear with a moisture and odor control feature; however, I’m not convinced this is technically possible after numerous washes.  So far, I’ve been very pleased with quality and construction of this pair after multiple washes.

As shown in the picture, this high quality brief is constructed with a contoured New Balance signature waistband and a closed fly.  The lightweight blend and flexible materials keep the brief in place around the legs and buttocks.  The traditional style comes in the following colors: white (as shown), gray, black, blue and red.  I would consider the hip brief one of the best pair of white briefs I’ve tested in a long time and would highly recommend them to anyone.  If you’re looking for a traditional brief, or curious about their other lines which include trunks, boxer briefs, and boxer shorts, you should seriously consider giving them a try.  With the classic looks and styles we’ve come to appreciate from New Balance, you simply can’t go wrong.

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!
