I always enjoy getting to review a brand that is new to me and the 9674 Boxer is my first pair from Candyman. Overall, Candyman makes quirky and unique underwear that runs the gambit from colorful designs to costume underwear. The 9674 falls into the colorful category. The bright red boxers feature a black contrast zig-zag stitching and white horizontal lines on the leg panels (The 9674 is also available in a white/black combination).
I wore the 9674 for a vigorous day of errands around town, then out to dinner and overall they were a very comfortable pair. They did have a very small amount of ride-up but because of the short trunk-like cut, it was very minimal and not even noticeable until I was changing at home that evening. Additionally, the 93% Polyester/ 7% Spandex mix made for a very snug yet pleasing fit.
As always, I am happy when a pair of boxers has a nice pouch and the 9674 hit the mark with one that is roomy and offers just enough support. One interesting feature that is not readily noticeable from the pictures, is that the horizontal lines on the leg panels are actually pockets. There is something about this that is somewhat amazing to me as they are constructed in such a way that adds absolutely not extra bulk to the boxer and does not detract from the comfort or clean lines. The only question I have is why? While I could not conceive a reason to do such a thing (as reaching into your pants to take a call my be somewhat awkward in most social situations), the pocket fits an iPhone 5 nicely.
At the end of the day, this is a very solid and comfortable pair of boxers, nothing groundbreaking but I’ll be keeping them on the top of my pile.
