I had such high hopes for the Garcon Model Brazil Trunk when I received it as it is quite an attractive looking pair. Available only in yellow with green piping (Brazil – get it?) the trunk features a comfortable metallic logo waistband as well a color contrast logo on the seat of the trunk . Additionally there is no annoying tag to deal with. These great details are probably why they are the most popular item on the GM store. However, the pleasing looks is where my love affair with this trunk ends because despite these advantages I had issues with the general fit of the pair.
I own quite a few pairs of boxers/trunks/shorts and in my opinion these barely qualify as a trunk; the cut is much more like a brief. When I first put these on, I even double checked the package to make sure I received a trunk. Additionally, for a large, the fit was pretty tight, especially at the leg opening – to the point that when I took them off at the end of the day, they had definitely bunched up around my legs adding to the brief appearance. Also, if you’ve read any of my previous reviews you know that I am a fan of underwear with pouches and while the Brazil trunk does have a semblance of a pouch, it likewise is tight and somewhat uncomfortable.
While I do wear large in most of my underwear, obviously I could alleviate many of my issues by purchasing an XL however, sadly they are not available bigger than a large. Overall, I would say that they are well made and the 82% Nylon/18% Spandex is remarkably soft. If they fit you, they are a great pair of underwear; however, the awkward fit means that for me personally they will be living at the back of my underwear drawer.

Garçon Model furnished this pair for review.
PLEASE, I BEG OF YOU, DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY. THEIR UNDERWEAR IS TERRIBLE AND WHEN YOU ASK THEM TO HONOR THEIR GUARANTEE? THEY CREATE A HUGE HASSLE FOR YOU. I ULTIMATELY HAD TO GO THROUGH MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY, AND 2 MONTHS LATER THIS COMPANY IS STILL MAKING 2 PAIRS UNDERWEAR THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE. THE UNDERWEAR FEELS LIKE AN ACE BANDAGE AND IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.
