First let me say I thought I had posted this review long ago, so when I found it in my review stack I was like OMG! I had to review it right away. So to this I apologize to Parker & Pine.This brand may not be one for the majority of our readers. I say this because unlike a lot of brands their sizing starts at XL. Yup you heard me right! If you’re a medium this brand isn’t for you, they are a company that has made underwear for the bigger guy. Which is great to see!
Being the biggest guy not the site, It was up to me to review. I have about a 38/40 waist right now and wasn’t sure I would be able to wear the pair. When I held it up it looked really big. Its not often you can say this about an underwear brand that it looks bigger than the size listed. But I put it on and wore it to work. Let me also say that boxer briefs aren’t my favorite. So I was hoping they would hold up through out the day.
I wore them to work and really didn’t notice I was wearing a boxer brief. It kept everything in place and didn’t ride up in the legs. One of my biggest gripes about boxer briefs is the lack of a great pouch. This one had a good pouch. It kept me in place and comfortable all day. I was kind of impressed the fit. All too often a boxer brief, especially one a bit bigger, can go horribly awry! They list as a feature a contour pouch, I didn’t believe them but I was proved wrong!
The sizing for XL is 42/44. Which is a bit bigger than I currently am. So that had me worried but it didn’t really affect the pair. They go all the way up to size 54. So just pay attention to the sizing and you should be fine.
I want to include this form their site, their mission: The mission is simple: to help big men look their best. How are we going to do this? By creating high quality, well designed pieces that are specifically made to fit and flatter our customers – the fashion conscious big man. We’re starting with menswear basics because they determine the way the rest of your clothes look on you.
The last thing is it came in a reusable bag! I love when underwear companies so these little things. you can use it for anything you want. This really took me off guard and just made my day.
