SALVATORE Recommendation: I am typically a brief guy, but have been attempting to add more boxer briefs and trunks to my collection. The simple reason is that my wife thinks they are sexy and comments on trunks or boxers briefs every time I wear them. I am not saying that you should select your underwear solely on what your wife/girlfriend/significant other thinks. I am saying that she does play a role in influencing what I buy and wear. After all, we enjoy going underwear shopping together.
This particular design gave me the opportunity to try something new and add a trunk to the collection. Because I am so into anatomical pouches. The write-up and look of this boxster seemed to be a perfect pair. To add to my budding collection of trunks and boxer briefs. I received them in the mail, opened them up, got excited about the look and feel and decided to try them on. These are my findings:
Pouch: Contrary to the pictures posted on line of the sexy model with the big package hanging naturally inn an ergonomical looking design, there IS NO POUCH. The boxster is virtually completely flat in the front causing testicles to stick to legs. This overwhelmed my disappointing feelers. My system failed to recognize the potential of a pouchless trunk.
Leg Bands: The leg bands are extremely loose fitting and cause severe bunching under clothing. Personally, this is the number one reason I stay away from trunks and boxer briefs. I do not like the bunching effect. I have found several well-constructed trunks that do not bunch. The tradeoff is a really tight leg band that sometimes leaves ridiculous lines under clothing.
Fabric: The cotton and spandex blend is the most appealing thing about this trunk. The fabric is super duper soft and feels so incredible laying on the skin. WoW! Is all I can say about the fabric. Although I have been very critical about this boxster. I recommend the pair for a lounging lay around the house day type of garment. The color pops and will draw attention if you happen to be standing in front of an open window or door. Who knows, maybe that is what you are after!!!!!!
I also recognize that I have a bias towards pouch types and briefs. With that said, many people are not bothered by a snuggly fitting pouch and bunching under their pants. That’s okay. I will always say that N2N puts a lot of effort into their designs and makes incredible garments with men in mind. Don’t let me dissuade you from making the purchase. Go buy a pair and do an honest assessment for yourself. Enjoy this great men’s underwear designer.
