Jake Joseph Classic Brief

From the various reviews I’ve conducted in the past several months, I’ve noticed one common denominator that runs true with every brief that I’ve tested—if the design isn’t well constructed, you’ll fail with that particular style.  I don’t know if it’s pure luck or coincidence, but it all comes down to construction.  In my humble opinion, this must be the fundamental focus when designing a brief.  Because they cover the least amount of the body of any other pair of underwear (minus thongs and jocks), it’s critical that the manufacturer hits the mark when it comes to how a pair is technically constructed.

The black pair of Jake Joseph briefs I recently tried simply failed in this area.  Don’t get me wrong, the quality of materials, which include 95% bamboo viscose and 5% spandex, nailed it when it comes to comfort. Likewise, the classic black color along with a perfected waistband that includes the signature Jake Joseph name makes for a pleasurable aesthetic.  Simply stated, I expected a better brief in this price point.

Recently, I wore these for a full day which included my regular work schedule as well as a lot of physical activity.  I was constantly pulling these back around my buttocks.  I don’t think it was a problem with an ill fitted pair for my body size.  These briefs were a size medium and I have a 31 inch waist so I’m convinced this wasn’t the root of the problem.  Perhaps it’s simply a pair that didn’t get caught during quality control inspection.  However, buyer beware if this a common problem with you as well when trying to purchase the perfect pair.   I guess you can’t win them all but I have to stay true to my convictions and assessment.

Personal scoring as follows:


Fit: 4.0
Materials: 5.0
Construction: 2.0
Look: 4.5
Daily Wear: 3.0
Overall: 3.7

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!
