When I opened my latest review pair the other day, I was excited to see this hot number (horrible pun intended) by PiKante. Their 8364 boxer is an eye-catching micro mesh of a 93% Polyester/ 7% Spandex mix that is available in a light blue color with yellow contrast stitching and logo waistband. While I am a fan of logo waistband, the PiKante logo could probably use a little editing as it contains but a chili pepper as the “i” and an underwear-clad male form as the “t” – but that’s just my two cents.
On the day I wore the boxer I found myself doing errands and going to the grocery store. As they day wore on I found that it felt like the leg had rode up a tad and felt somewhat bunched at my thighs. Much to my surprise when I changed that evening the boxers were not actually bunched at all, I’ll admit it, I have meaty thighs and I believe in my case that the leg openings were a little too snug and that after a full day of errands, I really started to notice it. With that said, there was no chaffing or the like, it was just mildly uncomfortable; however, as comfort is paramount for me in my underwear, that did lead to my fit/daily wear ratings below.
I do however, have to compliment PiKante on the micro mesh that was chosen for the boxer. While it is partly shear, it is very discrete and does not feel like it is revealing too much or letting any part of your anatomy hangout – at least not anymore than it’s well-designed pouch is suppose to. Additionally, sometimes mesh boxers tend to have a flimsy feel to them and I am happy to report that these have a hardy build that definitely holds its own.
Overall, I really wanted to like these boxers, especially because of the color combo, but the leg fit is an issue for me. I hope that it might have just been this pair because I like the other features and would like to wear these more regularly than I will because of the fit.
