If you have read any of my past +reviews, you know that I love trying new brands, and I am a HUGE fan of jockstraps. So when I was told I was going to be reviewing the ManView Campus City Boy jockstrap. Jockstrap was furnished by Macondo Trading. I was very excited. ManView is a brand I had heard a lot of good things about, but I didn’t own anything that I had released. I have to say that I have been missing out. I love a good jockstrap. When you add in some sexy contrasting colors and that little bit of a unique look, it is hard for me to go wrong.
I reviewed the ManView Campus City Boy Jockstrap in Green/Orange in a size medium. One of the first things that caught my eye with this jockstrap is that just looking at it from the front. It has the look of a brief. With most jocks you just have a pouch and the waist band. ManView added these extra side panels which add a whole new look and feel to what you typically think of when it comes to a jock. This panel extends all the way around to the back of the jock. Which I wasn’t sure if I would like at first. But found out quickly, this was something that I am going to continue to look for when it comes to a jockstrap that I can wear all day every day. I hate it when I decide to wear a jock and the waist band rides up on my back advertising to the whole world that I am wear a jock. What I like about the Campus City Boy jock is that with the extra fabric just below the waistband. IIt doesn’t seem to ride up and offers that little extra bit of coverage.
The fabric on these is 94% cotton and 6% elastane. This is a great fabric combination if you want to wear these all day. The front pouch I did find to be a bit small, but wasn’t a deal breaker for me at all. The cotton/elastane fabric allowed it to stretch and contour to my body and was very comfortable all day. I love the color combination of these are well. The color is perfect for Halloween and I can’t wait to wear these out next weekend. You can bet I will be buying the red and blue ones as well for all of those patriotic summer holiday’s next year.
Great fit and true to size
Great coverage, yet keeps the integrity of fun of wearing a jockstrap
Great fabric for everyday wear, even to the gym!
Pouch was a bit cramped and might take some time to get used too.

This pair was furnished for review by Macondo Trading. These come in the Orange and green as well as Red and Blue. They can be found through the Macondo Trading Amazon website for $21.48.
Review #4 was the Manview Calor brief in blue. This was a new brand for me so I had no expectations going in. When I first opened the package, I liked the colors and style immediately so I was excited to give these a shot. From what I can find online. These are also available in a green/gray combination.
Lots of driving and some projects that were outside made these VERY sweaty and gave them a run for their money. I liked the soft fabric and fun styling the minute I pulled these briefs on. But might not choose them for a really hot, active day or for the gym. Because it seems the material isn’t made for that and doesn’t dry quickly and I’m not a huge fan of a damp crotch all day!
The sizing online says they run small so buy accordingly. I am a 31-32 and this medium fit just right. The 6% spandex provides a good amount of stretch and the 94% cotton makes them soft.
The cut is that of a modern brief. With the front and back panels connected to side panels in contrasting white fabric. which makes them just a little different and allows the bright, red piping to really show. The waistband is larger than usual with MANVIEW written in large lettering. Which was fine for me, but might bother those who like less elastic around their waist. The back of these briefs was full but did ride up just a little throughout the day. Not enough to be annoying but I found myself adjusting them every so often.
Overall these are a pair I would recommend. I will continue to wear – just not on overly active days when I want a pair to stay in place without any fuss. The multiple colors were great and make them stand out in my drawer of over 200 pairs, which is a huge bonus.
Soft, comfortable fabric
Back needed to be adjusted throughout the day
Larger than usual waistband (only a con for some)

I am on a roll with the color block briefs! This is my second review of the last line released from ManView Bodywear. The first was the 1001 Campus Class Joker Brief. This time it’s the Campus City Boy Brief. This too has one of my favorite colors, GREEN! Although, its not a bright vibrant green but a more muted almost neon green.
The brief has a similar cut to the Campus Brief. The pouch and design is a good one. Is it my all time favorite? No, but it’s still a great pouch. Guys of all sizes should have ample support. This pair also same fabric blend of the Campus brief, a 94% Soft Cotton & 6% Spandex. This I will admit is one of my favorite blends of fabric.
I wore this not running around Vegas at Magic. I wore it later in the week when I came down with bronchitis. There is nothing worse than getting sick out of town. The good part is I came down with it the night of the last day of Magic. But It didn’t’ hit me till the next day, Friday. I spent the weekend with friends in Vegas and instead of having a great fun filled weekend. I spent the entire time on the sofa sleeping.
I think the highlight of the weekend was going to the minute clinic. So this was not put through the paces like the Campus Brief. But, I wills ay when you are sick that’s the time you want to wear great undies. You don’t want to wear something that will drive you crazy. It felt great, I have worn them again in a regular day and they did a similar job as the Campus brief.
The design is fun. I love the orange around the bottom. It runs half around the back to just below the pouch. One benefit of this is it sets off the pouch. It will accent with you have! Plus its different and fun.
Sizing is pretty much spot on. I didn’t have any issues with the pair. Being sick I didn’t notice any bonding or being too small. Trust me had I felt it they would have come off ASAP. Again if you look at the sizing charts you should have no issues.
This is one of my favorite pictures from the 2014 UNB Holiday Guide. It was a lot of fun and the first time Michael (left) wore a jock and he was having a little fun with with. Picture features ManView Bodywear by GDD World
With great pleasure we bring you the 2014 Holiday Guide shoot. We couldn’t have done it without our sponsors GDD World (Clever, JOR, ManView Bodywear), Modus Vivendi, Cocksox, aussieBum, Wood Underwear and Charles Owo. It was a was our best shoot to date. We had one minor hiccup but other than that the day went super smooth!
The video was released yesterday, which gave you a preview to the shoot. The photographer is Ignacio Rivera Jr. who has shot our last years Holiday Guide and the 2014 Swimwear Guide. Our models are Derek Yates, Chandler, Michael and Nathan. All had a lot of fun during and after the shoot when we did dinner!
We hope you enjoy the pics and get some of these great pairs for yourself or your loved one this holiday Season.

The question was posed in the headline. But does wearing yellow underwear bring you good luck or good fortune in the New Year? It is believed by countries in South America. Columbia is one that believes this ritual for the next year. It’s similar to those of us in the south that believe if you eat black eyed peas and greens it will do the same.
The pair above is from International Jock and it’s the 2xist Color No-Show Trunk. The one thing I noticed while writing this post, there are not a lot of yellow pairs online. I saw some from Diesel, 2xist and ManView. So if you are going out last minute to find some, I’d suggest the 2xist because you can get them from major department stores. I know that Macy’s does carry the Color line, but it’s not in every store. If not, think about it next year, it will make your underwear selection easier!
The pair I am planning to wear I got from Erogenos. It’s a super fun pair and it’s by ManView Bodywear (see the picture to the right). it’s called the Manview Bodywear 69 Brief. I thought, “Hey I got nothing to loose by wearing yellow underewar.” It’s just something different then we usually do here in the U.S.
No matter what you do, we hope you have an incredible New Year. Keep it safe yet fun and enjoy the night. Post a comment here if you do anything for new years like this, especially if it involves underwear!
