Ken Wroy is a very interesting company. The last pair I reviewed was a trunk that I actually liked. The fit of the brand was pretty good. Now they have furnished us the London Brief to review. It’s part of their new Great Skyline collection. The Great Skyline collection is a take on the NYC print they had but now used the skylines of other cities. It’s a really cool line. I was really looking forward to trying it.
The first thing I noticed was the fabric. Most of the other pairs I have seen from Ken Wroy have been cotton. This is a 89% Polyester/11% Spandex. It felt great when I took it out of the box. Oh, before I forget the box is pretty awesome. It comes in this travel box and is super fun. Its not for those who want to be discreet! Everyone will know you are getting underwear! (see the picture). Back to the pair! The gold waistband really works with this pair. It sets off the print nicely and tops the pair just perfect. The red city print in the London pair is my favorite. But all the prints are pretty awesome.
I wore the pair to a party. I felt this pair deserved some fun night. I really didn’t dress up the theme was funky t-shirts. The pair felt just as great on as it did when I took it out of the box. The spandex in the blend made it stretch and fit great. This pair really surprised me how well I thought I would like. The design was amazing but the fit was very good as well. I have no real complaints with this pair in wearing. Other than I want the entire collection of cities now!
The sizing was pretty spot on. The XL I received said it was for 37-39. I thought when I took them out they maybe a bit tight as I am a bit bigger than the size. However, this was not the case it fit amazing and the fabric still held it’s form and shape. The sizing should match their guide pretty well.
