Before I start this review that was furnished by BearSkn. I have to tell you a bit about BearSkn. They are an underwear company made for all men. Meaning size is not an issue. They have sizes from small to 6XL. You heard me right 6XL. So no matter your size you will find some undies you will like.
I’m a bigger guy. I have about a 40 waist back up from 36 over a year ago. I want to get back down but finding undies to fit is not always easy. Many brands don’t go above 38 and some just up to 36 inches. Its frustrating to see great undies I can’t wear. But I digress!
The brief looks like like a brief. To me it seemed a little boring in the design department when I saw it in pictures. It was a “yeah it’s a brief nothing special.” The fabric looked like cotton and maybe a blend, it didn’t catch me. BearSkn sent me a few briefs to try, I was giving it the good ole UNB try.
The first thing I noticed was the fabric. All my preconcived ideas of hte pair were blown away. The fabric was not stiff but super soft. I had to do a double take on the fabric. It was pretty awesome. The fabric is 95% Cotton, 5% Elastane, Mesh: 95% Polyester. The mesh is at the bottom of the pair to allow extra air flow, which is awesome! It all goes back to what we have been told. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. And I won’t be doing that again with BearSkn.
I wore this pair on a night out for a friends birthday. It felt great under my jeans. The mesh panel came in handy because it was a hot almost summer night in ATL and the restaurant didn’t have the air on. It was horrible to be in 80+ degree heat with humidity. So the mesh made me feel comfy, well as I could for
The sizing of the pair is amazing. I got an XL and it fit me very well. You def will need to look at their sizing chart if you go into the larger sizes. But it should be pretty standard sizing from Small through XL.
