Summer is in full swing and with holiday’s like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July here and gone, I was really looking for a pair of undies that I could wear out to all these great summer parties. What better way to celebrate America then by getting a pair of red, white and blue made in the USA Pistol Pete.

Pistol Pete has been a round the underwear world for a little while now, but they are one brand that I had never tried before. It is nice to see and support some of these great “Made in the USA” undies companies. When I found out I would be reviewing a few pairs of Pistol Pete I was very excited. Thought maybe these would be my summer “go to” undies.

I reviewed the Pistol Pete Pistol Brief (Red) in a size medium. When they arrived I was very excited to see the vibrant red, white and blue coloring. I immediately thought these were going to be my go to patriotic undies for the summer. The waistband is your typical 1” elastic with a red, white and blue stripe. The Pistol Pete logo is mirrored around the waistband but is smaller and does not take away from the look of the brief. The main fabric content is 97% cotton, which makes these briefs breathable on those hot summer night. The leg openings are also patriotic in red, white and blue stripped elastic. The pouch and fly are offset by a bright white as well.

The look of this brief is amazing while wearing them. They do sit a little lower on the hips, but that is the way I like to wear my undies so that did not bother me at all. These briefs also made my butt look great. The heaver elastic bands around the leg openings really helped lift and make my butt look perky. The one drawback that I really wasn’t happy with and was ultimately a deal breaker for me was the size of the pouch. I really wanted to like these briefs but the pouch was too small.  I consider myself to be a pretty average sized guy, and I felt very cramped in these. With the small pouch I could stand to wear these for a short period of time, but I don’t think I could wear them all day. I did do a little research on the Pistol Pete website and they do say “Our clothing is a contoured fit.  If you like a looser fit, we suggest you order one size larger.” So with that in mind for next time, a large might be in order.

I would recommend these undies and they are a great addition to my collection. These undies come in Red (reviewed), White and Navy Blue. I think I might have to order the white ones next to see how they compare!!
