This is our second pair of Kiniki to review. The first pair really impressed me, so I was really looking forward to trying the brief. Yes I am a brief guy and they are my underwear of choice on a daily basis. The pair I got to review is the Latimer Trim Brief in XL. Again, the sizing for this is a large for the US.  It fit pretty well. I would suggest this one for anyone around 36 inches or so.

The brief looked very cool to me. The body was navy and the waistband was a snake print. Now, I’m not normally one for snake print but there is something about it that I really liked. It was different but not over the top. I love a great waistband in a pair of undies. It’s the icing on the cake for me, something few people see but to me an important part of undies. I know we have guys who read who could care less or like plain bands but not me!

I wore the brief to work. You maybe asking why we say where we wore the pair, but I think to really try out an underwear you have to put it in every day situations. To me work is where I find if a pair of underwear will be good or not.  The pair wore great through out the day. One thing that worried me was the lack of a defined pouch. To me it can go either way with a pair without pouches. But, the pair felt good all day.

Will I wear this pair again? Definitely, the pair has a good design, great materials and the waistband is awesome. The pair is made out of 95% cotton and 5% elastane for “improved fit” third site says.  The 5% elastane gives it some give and not as rigid as 100% cottong.
