Pros: Nice loud color, black light responsiveness.

Cons: Annoying care tag.

Underweardude recommendation: If you are looking to add a pop of color to your thong collection, this line fits the bill.

I received this pair from Male Power to review, and I’ve got to say right off the bat, that this is a really sexy pair! The Neon Orange color that I received is wonderful, bright and vibrant. Male Power states that the pair is black light responsive but I was unable to test it, but that might make it a good pair for clubbing, and is certainly a fun addition. Male Power states it has “sexy torso-baring sling styling”, and it sure does! It features a very daring super low rise curved front, and if wearing this in public I might recommend manscaping. I quite like that curved front look, so if it’s your thing too check this pair out. The back is slightly small, but in the normal range for guys thongs. The fit was just fine for me as well.

The pouch looks small at first, but once you pit it on it fits great. The spandex material has some stretch, but not exceptional. As long as you aren’t packing some serious heat, you should be good in this pair. The spandex does not feel exceptionally smooth to the touch but is quite comfortable when worn.

My only real complaint with this pair is that the care tag is the length of the entire depth of the triangular back part of the strap, almost too long, and can move about and become a nuisance. Luckily, a pair of sizers solves that problem easily. I also found the stitching on the back of the elastic to be slightly rough, but not noticeable during normal wear. The waistband is also practically nonexistent, so if you prefer your pairs to have a real waistband, this pair is not for you.

I would certainly recommend this pair. Every time I put it on it made me feel extremely confident and sexy. I wore this pair on a busy Thong  Thursday and had no problems with it. If you want a sleek, sexy thong to show off what you’ve got, check this pair out.

The Male Power Snap thong was furnished by Male Power.

  • Daily Fit: 5/10
  • Sizing: 3/10
  • Construction: 8/10
  • Styling: 6/10

Pros: Cool snap fly.

Cons: Sizing is a bit off.

Underweardude recommendation: If you are looking for a fun sexy thong for the bedroom, this is worth a look.

Male Power, the venerable underwear brand that has been making snazzy underwear for guys since the 70’s has come out with it’s 2017 lineup, and I’ve got an interesting pair that I received from them to review, the Snap Thong. What makes this pair different from most, if any pairs, I’ve encountered, are the three snaps buttons that cross diagonally above the right hip, and form the connection to that side.

So what did I like about this pair? First off, it had real character. The mesh was fun, but it wasn’t too wide so you couldn’t really see anything until up close. Combined with the fun snap feature, I can see this pair becoming a real big hit in the bedroom. The rest of the thong itself is your standard thong shape, as much as there is one these days. The dark blue mesh of the pair I received combined well with the white elastic trim. The pouch is fine, if not exceptional, with some stretch provided by the material. I was also curious to see how the fly would work in less, romantic situations. It worked better than I expected, though I dared not try it in public. I would not want to go through the difficulty and embarrassment of fumbling with my underwear for that long in a public restroom, or pray that no one heard the snap as it was closed. The snaps appear to be well made, of high quality.

This pair was not without its faults, however. The thong strap is too wide in between the legs for my tastes, and the way the white trim is on the back strap does not look very flattering in my opinion. I also had an issue with sizing. I’m a bit of a scrawny guy but usually, size small pairs work for me. The tag, (a small one thank goodness), states the pair to be a S/M, so perhaps that is why the pair is a bit loose. It is still fine for me just lounging around the house, but I would not try to say, going for a run in it. This size issue causes the fabric that the snaps lay on upfront to bulge slightly.

Then we come to the snaps. They are quite hard to remove, which I guess is sort of a good thing when three snaps are holding your underwear together, but it also makes it impossible to remove even one with just one hand, lowering the sex appeal of the pair for me a bit.Once a second hand is applied the snaps come off easily and quickly. The snap fly is also on the right side of the pair, which may be annoying to some wearers who are left handed.


Overall, I want to like this pair. It is sexy, fun, with a great party piece in the snaps. By no means is this pair a bad thong. It’s just not a great thong. It just isn’t and alls round all day thong. It’s a pair that its purpose is in the bedroom, and it has enough there to be useful. Its major flaw is that it doesn’t fit me in particular. I am sure there are many men for which this thong will fit perfectly. Alas, I am not one of them. Despite its limited use, the Male Power Snap Thong has some characteristics that make it quite attractive for that use, so if you are looking for a pair to wear for fun times, give the pair a look.

Sukrew furnished the Cobalt Thong for review.

Rating: 8.8/10 (Average of the ratings below)

  • Daily Fit: 8/10
  • Sizing: 10/10
  • Construction: 9/10
  • Styling: 9/10
  • Daily Performance: 8/10

Pros: Great pouch, amazing fabric, and great colors

Cons: Was uncomfortable driving but think it was my situation. 

UNB Tim recommendation: Great thong to try and wear. Especially if it’s your first thong. Just don’t drive too much while wearing it! I will definitely wear this more and give updates on the thong. I’m impressed with their thongs. 

You guys have gone crazy for thongs over the last year. I will admit that it’s not my go to style. It’s probably in the middle of my underwear spectrum. It’s not that I don’t like thongs but I have to be in the mood to wear them. Many of you guys have raved about the Sukrew thong that I had to try one. I mean, I had to try the entire line and give it an objective review.

I decided to wear this for a half day. Not because I was expecting it to be uncomfy, but a few things I had to do, I didn’t want to wear a thong doing them. The review conditions were me doing a lot of driving. I figured I wouldn’t do anything too out of the ordinary and it shouldn’t cause any problems. As the day went on the string got a little uncomfortable by the pouch. Due to the driving and sitting. I don’t think this was a flaw with the thong but more the conditions. I noticed when I got out or stood up it didn’t bother me. Usually, if it’s the design, no matter what you do it will annoy you. I don’t ding the pair for this. It could have been the way I was sitting, my jeans or a host of other factors.

One thing that did go great was the pouch. Their pouch is one that allows you to hang free and natural. No wonder so many of you guys love this thong. Sukrew’s pouch is must brilliant. As I said in my Pouch Primer the other day, they have one of the best pouches on the market.

If you are familiar with Sukrew, they have had pretty consistent construction and fabric. They have always been well made and I have never had any issues with the swimwear or underwear I have received from them. Their fabric is a spandex blend that fits your body really well.

As for sizing with Sukrew, there shouldn’t be too much of an issue. They have been pretty consistent for the last few years. I received and XL and it fit me well. My regular size is an XL. Just, as always double check the sizing chart before buying.

This is a great thong. I will have to wear it again, this time without so much driving. Overall I was impressed with the pouch and fabric. The only time the strap bothered me was while driving. Other than that I rarely noticed I had a thong on. I need to try thongs more often. Thanks for inspiring me guys.

ChLXcL9UgAEVoRbCandyman Fashion furnished the X3D SUAVE THONG by ERGOWEAR for review.

Rating: 10/10

  • Daily Fit: 10/10
  • Sizing: 10/10
  • Construction: 10/10
  • Styling: 10/10
  • Daily Performance: 10/10

Pros: Super soft fabric, great golden waistband, anatomical pouch

Cons: No cons.

SALVATORE Recommendation: I was excited the day my Ergowear Review package arrived in the mail. I get new underwear quite often. But there is something exhilarating about receiving a brand you’ve never tried before. Ergowear has long been considered the “gold standard” in anatomically or ergonomically correct pouches by most experts. This begs the question that if I consider myself an underwear expert. how in the world had I never tried Ergowear? I’ve come to realize that sometimes even the most experienced underwear enthusiast misses something incredible.

As I carried the package inside, I went through my normal new underwear routine. I went to my bathroom opened the package. I enjoyed a few moments of solace with new arrivals. The first pair I pulled out was the FEEL SUAVE BIKINI. The second pair I pulled out was the MAX SUAVE BIKINI. The third pair I pulled out was the X3D BIKINI in turquoise. The fourth pair I pulled out was the X3D SUAVE THONG in vermouth.

Never been a thong man. Sure, I have a few in my collection. But up until now, I’ve never considered them for anything other than sleeping in. The idea of something riding up the crack has always been unappealing to me. That changed when Ergowear arrived at my mailbox. Something about the soft anatomical pouch that the Suave collection.  That overwhelms the thought of dislike for thongs. I enjoyed wearing this pair.

Here are few things that stuck out to me:

  • Pouch: The X3D Pouch is one of my favorite pouches. Coming from a pouch snob, you should take that lightly. The anatomy fits just right in this collection. Surpassingly, the thong lived up to my expectation.
  • Ergowear Logo: The Ergowear logo is sewn front in center on the top of the brief.  Where the waistband would be if it had one. This is simple and adds to the overall look of the brief. The logo calmly states that the wearer is fashionable and knows how to pick good undies. Some brands are over the top with their branding of products. Again, there is nothing wrong with that, but it is sometimes necessary to be a little more discreet.
  • Fabric: LUXURY! LUXURY! LUXURY! Ergowear pulled no punches with how incredible this Suave Microfiber blend feels on the sensitive region. The 95% Polyester and 5% Spandex blend is very soft, displays high elasticity, is a highly resistant fiber. It allows very little moisture absorption. One of the best I’ve ever put on.

If you’ve read any of the posts in this mini-series. You will know that what I just said is almost identical to some of the other posts. That’s because the collection is simply amazing. I am so shocked that that Ergowear was able to translate such comfort into a thong. Try it out! If you have any feedback for me or just want to link up on social media, hit me up on Twitter @manatomicallyme.

UN2-16-3The Stone Wash Classic Cotton G was furnished by N2N Bodywear.

Rating: 8.2/10

  • Daily Fit: 8/10
  • Sizing: 9/10
  • Construction: 8/10
  • Styling: 8/10
  • Daily Performance: 8/10

Pros: Interesting color, good looking thong.

Cons: A little worried about the wrong tag.

Underweardude recommendation: If you like to wear thongs on a day to day basis, or even if you don’t. This would make a fine addition to your underwear drawer.

Today I will be reviewing another new pair that I received for review by N2N.  A cousin of the Neon G from a few days ago. You might say, the Stone Wash Classic Cotton G. Like the Neon pair. What makes this pair different from the core Classic Cotton line is the color. On its website N2N says it is “Pigment dyed for a vintage look”, and that definitely  rings true. Sure, at first glance it does just sort of look like a plain old blue, but not quite. The shade feels basic, yet also deep and complex. It’s hard to describe. To me, it also makes the fabric look a bit worn in already, in a sense.  But in a good UN2-16-7way, like wearing a significant others shirt or such. Like you’ve owned it for years right out of the box. That may not be an ideal look for everyone, but I think it brings a sense of charm to the pair. As long time readers might know, blue is one of my favorite colors, so of course I jumped at a chance to try this pair. Like the Neon line, the size/care tags are dyed nearly the exact same color as the pair. I’m really enjoying this trend. If you aren’t getting rid of or are unable to get rid of care/size tags, you might as well have some fun with them. Would love to see other designers who haven’t already gone to printing that information on the pair directly  pick up this idea. Size wise the pair was pretty much fine, as usual for me, since I practically straddle the S/M divide.

There was one odd thing with the pair. The tag stated that the pair was not cotton, but polyester. I was profoundly confused. A quick check of  N2N’s website states that. Obviously, the line is made out of cotton.  The pair feels nearly identical to the other cotton N2N pairs that I own. Though I do not consider myself an expert on this by any means. I chalk it up to simple manufacturing mistake. I’ve been wearing N2N for about a decade now, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like this. Not a big worry to me.

Though I normally don’t participate in the trend of Thong Thursday, I wanted to give this pair a real good test. I wore it for a  long walk and to work. I only really noticed it once at work, and it quickly went back to normal. The pair didn’t get annoying or needed any adjustment. Despite the near constant movement required at my job.  Like its brightly colored cousin I reviewed recently. I would certainly recommend this pair for a thong lover wanting to get an N2N cotton pair with just a bit more color to it tun usual. A good middle ground between the more subdued colors offered by the main line, and the loud colors available in Neon.

The Neon Cotton Classic G is Furnished by N2N Bodywear

Rating: 8.5/10

  • Daily Fit: 8/10
  • Sizing: 9/10
  • Construction: 9/10
  • Styling: 9/10
  • Daily Performance: 8.5/10

Pros: Great color, good look.
Cons: No overwhelming cons.
Underweardude Recommendation: If you like brightly colored thongs. This pair is for you.

When I first got a look at N2N’s new lines for 2016, I was surprised. Not only did they have a bunch of new lines. They decided to turn one line into several by branching out the Classic Cotton line. Adding two other varieties to it. Today I will be talking about the Classic Cotton Neon line. Specifically the Neon G. The Neon line is a new variety from the venerable classic cotton line by N2N. Much about the pair is the same as older versions of the line, except for one major difference: the color. While previously available only on more traditional tones. This line comes in bright and loud neon varieties of pink and yellow.

N2N provided the pair for review, and from the moment I took it out of the packaging I couldn’t wait to try it on.  The color is just great. While I usually stay away from pairs in these sort of shades, I love the look of the yellow pair I received. The yellow hue that was chosen is strong, not pale, and in some angles and types of light it almost looks neon green to me. The color of the pair just pops while you wear it, and is a great idea to shake up the line. A nice small touch is that the size/care tag is dyed the same color as the pair. Which N2N seems to be doing a lot these days but I quite like the attention to detail. The sizing was fine for me. Perhaps a tiny bit tight but i’m on the larger side of size small and after wearing it for awhile it went away.

Besides the color change, this is the N2N Classic Cotton thong you know and love. Great pouch, good low rise fit, skimpy, but still covers more than you’d think. I think the bright color helps show off the cut. I like how I look in this pair a fair bit more than the dark grey pair I already own.  I wore this pair on the weekend,and it performed admirably. Whether it was out and about running errands, household chores, a long walk, or a night out with friends. This thong pretty much didn’t bother me at all. I also honestly couldn’t stop checking out how it looks in the mirror. That color is simply fantastic!

If you want a great everyday thong with a pop of color, look no farther. If you already own a Classic Cotton thong, think of it as a car you love, but now with an awesome new paint job. Simply put, this takes an already good daily wearable thong, which not too many are, and adds a great look to it. I really wish they had one in neon green too. I like it that N2N is not only coming out with new lines. But expanding their core products with additional variety, which I think is a great idea. As for what the other new variety of Classic Cotton is, well, you’ll just have to wait for my next post to find out.

DC5-16-26N2N Bodywear furnished the DC5 SLIK G in a nice rich deep teal color for review.

Rating: 9.4/10
Daily Fit: 9/10
Sizing: 10/10
Construction: 10/10
Styling: 9/10
Daily Performance: 9/10

Pros: Great back cut
Cons: No real cons, but only available in 4 colors

I’m pleasantly surprised with the fit of the DC5 Slik G thong (furnished by N2N Bodywear). I was a little concerned about the pouch being too roomy after my experience with the N2N Vintage G, but the Slik G’s pouch is right on to my liking. N2N calls it a seamless front pouch, which is the look that it gives you of a smooth front pouch. The pouch does have some stitching at the base of the pouch to give it some contouring.

I really like the back cut of this thong. It’s a little skimpier than a traditional cut thong where the sides come to create the tail. You know where you get the triangle right above the cheeks. How it is cut, you don’t have a lot of fabric between the cheeks at the top. The tail is a pretty consistent width all the way down through the cheeks. You still get the sexy traditional thong look for your backside with the Slik G. You do feel you have a thong on with these. I think it is part to the thickness of the elastic that is used, but it’s still comfortable. They just give you the reminder you are a stud in a thong.

Here’s some specifics about the thong. The thong feature a small N2N logo tag on the right hip. I find this refreshing from the blazing elastic waistbands promoting brand names. The tail is about 7/8″ wide and the sides are about 1″. The pouch does seem pretty supportive. I’d consider wearing them for something active like sports. They’re made out of 92% polyester and 8% spandex, which gives them a silky or satiny feel with some stretch. The N2N brand is made in Los Angeles. It’s available in 4 colors: brown, teal, dark gray, and slik sand.

Only modification I’d make to the thong is a little narrower front pouch. That would not stop me from getting the thong in another color though. Overall this is a great fitting thong and I would recommend giving one a try.

  • Sizing: 10/10
  • Construction: 10/10
  • Styling: 10/10
  • Daily Performance: 10/10

Pros: Material, Styling, Pouch, Cut

Cons: none

Let me start off by saying I love Clever Underwear. Before I had switched to wearing thongs almost my entire underwear collection of briefs/trunks/underwear was Clever. I love the fabric, styling, fit, everything this company does; so when I had switched to thongs I naturally had bought several pairs a couple years back. At that time I was greatly disappointed in the cut and style; but that was then. NOW I would have to say their thong line up is on par with the rest of their underwear line up, which is awesome.

This pair, I loved the material, the pouching was comfortable and breathable. The band like all of their bands is very high quality, a little saddened that the pair I had did not have Clever written in the front, but instead I had two partial sections, and the thong strap they finally got right. It is the right thickness so that you don’t feel it and it is cut so emphasize your cheeks.

The Sizing for this and all the underwear I have had of theirs is spot on; my waist is in the 32-34” range, and so I get a Large for them and it fits me well. I received from Clever a Large size, and was very satisfied with it.

Hi UNB fans, you might not have seen me around these parts. I’m a newly recruited straight guy and I go by Undies Rock simply because they do!  I currently reside in LA, and I enjoy playing music and spending time with my girlfriend and beast-cat.  We often refer to her (soft, domestic, house-cat).  As a new writer, it is my goal to provide you with the most accurate reviews. Keep you up to date on coolest undies on the market, and maybe make you laugh (ok, grin) on the way.  I am looking forward to joining the UNB team and please follow me on Instagram @undies_rock where I’ll also post briefs (pun intended) about my reviews as well as all the cool undies I dig.  Here is a stab at my first review:

As an underwear fanatic it is always the hardest to choose a favorite pair of underwear because your taste is constantly evolving. You know somewhere out there, there is another pair that is going to steal the hot seat as your favorite. I say this because most recently I have fallen in love with JM Skinz thongs.  Never did I imagine I would be raving about how awesome a thong is, but that was before I tried a JM Skinz thong.

I have known about the JM Skinz thong for at least a couple of years, but I never pulled the trigger on them because there weren’t enough reviews to mitigate the risk of buying another dud pair.  As fate would have it, my girlfriend bought me two pairs of JM Natura thongs for our August monthly underwear exchange.  Which blew my mind, and I must admit that I was a little bummed that I hadn’t given them a chance earlier.  Since the Natura line was such a success, I thought I would try the Skinz line. Which is currently my favorite pair.  I love the simple classic thong design as well as the thin encased elastic waistband design (as I am not huge fan of thick branded waistbands).  But what really struck me about this thong is how incredibly comfortable they are.  I can easily go all day with these thongs.  For the most part I don’t even notice I am wearing them. They transition seamlessly from lounge, to work, to fitness.

I currently own a majority of the solid colored Skinz thongs, as well as a few plaid patterns.  The color options aren’t the most flattering or creative. I have come to appreciate the standard color pallet they offer which meshes well with everyday use.  JM is also one of the few brands I prefer to buy directly from their website (which they opened last year) because of the occasional deals they have (free shipping, discounts, 3-packs, etc.). You can also find them on  The 86% polyester and 14% spandex microfiber fabric is incredibly smooth and soft. It doesn’t irritate, and has the right amount of give and support.  I have also washed my pair numerous times, and they have great shape retention.  The sizing is fairly accurate; I have a 34 inch waist, so I ordered a medium (32-34”) which fits perfectly.  I own 10 pairs and the quality control is spot on, so you can expect continuity in sizing.  One thing I will mention is that their Natura line tends to stretch out a little more than the Skinz, so I order a small.  The thong strap is 7/8” thick at its thinnest point, which literally disappears from your radar.

As I mentioned previously, I am not particularly blown away by the current color options, but I am content.  I am also not a huge fan of the center seam in the crotch.  Though this falls under the “nice to have category”, seamless fronts look the best to me which is a requirement for perfection.  Other than these two nit-picky cosmetic draw backs, this pair is a standout in my collection. If you are curious, I say go ahead and take the plunge because I assure you these JM thongs will not disappoint.

For those thong dudes out there, this pair is a definite must.

Body_cdee84af-836b-4615-821c-51f32ae36932_1024x1024I am the first to say I am not an every day thong kind of guy. It’s not the first pick of underwear that I get. That is not because I am not a fan, I just prefer briefs as my go to choice for each day. Occasionally I’ll wear one and when I used to wear tight cowboy cut wranglers I would always wear a thong under them. But that’s been a few years!

The group of things I received from Kikini to review included the Stowe Classic thong. I chose this because of the print. The print is a, well I call it, a psychedelic cheetah print. It’s red, green and orange. The thing about Kiniki prints is there are so many to choose from it’s hard to decide what you want. They are making some of the best prints on the market.

Since I am not a thong guy I didn’t want to wear it on a too busy day. The thong it self had no defined pouch and the back looked a little larger than I liked. I slid it on and the front felt fine. The fabric stretched and fit pretty well. I actually was surprised how well it did in the pouch department. One of the biggest problems with non defined pouches is that the front can gap and things can fall out. This pair didn’t do that, it kept everything in place and felt great.

Let’s talk about the back. As I said above that the back seemed a little wide. The back strap is one of the biggest complaints we get for thongs. I had initial misgivings on the back. I just knew the back would drive me crazy. As the day went on I honestly forgot I was in a thong. The back never rubbed or drove me crazy. This really impressed me. I have to say good job Kiniki! I think it all goes back to the material, had it been cotton it would never have worked!

This pair performed amazing. My initial thoughts on the pair remind me never to judge a pair before I wear them. Sometimes I see things I know I may not like and it can make me pay attention to those areas more. This time my “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” came into play. Will I wear this pair again? Yes I definitely will!

Sizing in the brand has been pretty good. They have a very good size chart that you should follow. Kiniki is based out of the UK so sizing will differ slightly. The pair I received fit pretty well. Remember if you are on the boarder of a size always go with the larger size.

41dnfV47BLLPikante is another one of those brands that I have always associated with a more daring, sexy look to their underwear.  Several of their items that I have seen online seem like they are better suited for a night of fun in the bedroom as opposed to a long day at the office.  So when I received my next review pair you can imagine what thought went through my head.  I opened up the package and found Pikante’s Mardi Gras Mesh Thong in my hands for my review.  This pair of underwear does not have a lot of fabric to it and leave pretty much nothing to the imagination.  What was my first thought?  How am I going to make it through a work day wearing this?  I will be honest and say that I decided to start off small on this one and wore it on  a date to dinner.

The thong has an elastic waistband featuring the Pikante logo around it several times.  The logo is a fun font including a pepper for the “i” adding a little spice to the name.  The material is a nylon and spandex combination which at first touch, feels a little rougher than what you are used to.  Apart from the waistband, there is very little material and very little cover up.  Prior to my evening out, I slipped the pair on to make sure I could be comfortable to last through dinner.  The look of this thong is so sexually intriguing its hard not to feel a little excited wearing it for someone.  Underneath the waistband, there is no fabric, leaving the entire pubic area and bottom of the shaft visible.  Personal tip:  You may want to trim prior to wearing this pair of underwear for added visual appeal.  Two straps dive down to create a mesh see thru pouch that holds the remainder of your package.  As you can see, everything is visible when you wear this thong so you will leave nothing to the imagination for whoever you choose to see you wearing it.  The back of the thong continues the trend of the little to no fabric with the classic “T” look.  There is a thin strap coming straight down from the middle of the back of the waistband, resting between the cheeks to form a “T”.  There is no other fabric for the back, leaving everything exposed.  You would not think this would be a comfortable pair of 220x277_VPK8007R_Bunderwear to wear and that it is purely meant for the bedroom but I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable I was in it during my evening out.

I wear a medium and although there is not much fabric to determine whether or not things are truly to size, I did feel the waistband was on the tighter side but I had enough room and comfort in the pouch to offset any discomfort from the tighter waistband.  The strap down the back did not pose any discomfort and to me was very unnoticeable.

All in all I was surprised that the underwear was more functional underneath a pair of jeans than anticipated.  I definitely feel that this is a pair that you will wear with a purpose as I did.  You can’t beat the design.  It is so appealing to look at and that is what I love about underwear.  Not all underwear is made for your basic everyday wear and that is what this is.  I may still try to wear it throughout a work day coming up to see how it holds up.  As I mentioned for this review, I wore this pair on a date and had a great time going through dinner knowing what was underneath my clothes.  And at the end of the night, I think my date appreciated it too.

GDD World furnished this thong.


$_58It is no surprise to anyone who reads UNB that I have always been a fan of thongs.  I love the sexy look and the feeling they give me.  To me it is not a feminine pair of underwear.  One brand of thongs that I have always admired but never worn was Clever.  There is something about the way these thongs look on the model that is so mesmerizing.  I only hoped I would be able to do them justice as those models do for them.

I finally received my first Clever thong and it was the blue Desert Thong.  They are as beautiful in person as in the pictures!  One thing that I love about Clever is how bold and large their waistband font is.  It wraps around the waist with a presence that is so demanding and powerful.  The thong features a cool wave design on the pouch in a blue on blue color scheme.  The material is a nylon, spandex combination that is lightweight and feels good against the skin.  The back of the thong is a wider Y shape that is appealing, especially for guys who are not a fan of the string like backs.  It adds a little more coverage and appeal on the backside.

I slipped the pair on and decided to take them for a test run over the weekend.  I noticed the waistband was tighter than a lot of my pairs I own.  After getting myself adjusted into the thong, I also could tell that the front pouch was not as roomy as other underwear I have worn before.  With that being said, this thong may not be for the well endowed man or you may want to try the next size up and see if you get additional room.  Although the thong was tighter in some areas than I am used to, it was not an uncomfortable wear.  I wore it for errands, lunch, and chores58850269_o1 around the house.  The back of the thong felt really great and I love the extra fabric at the top that holds the top of the bottom nicely.  The thong held up well on my day and I did not feel much discomfort.  At times I could feel the tightness of the waistband but not enough to make me want to take them off.

Overall this is a great looking thong.  It is probably one of my best looking thongs in design.  As far as comfort, it would not be my #1 go to for when I want to wear a thong but would definitely be in my top 5.  If there could be a little more room for comfort in the front pouch and a slightly looser waistband, then there may be a different story.

Andrew Christian TROPHY BOY SPIDER THONG 9543Happy Thong Thursday everyone!  Naturally I had to celebrate with Andrew Christian‘s Trophy Boy Spider Thong with Show-It Technology.  I love the look of these spider thongs because of all of the straps and cutouts that really let you feel sexy and show off some skin.  Taking a look at this thong you immediately notice a few things.  First there are the additional side straps underneath the waistband making the pair look more like a spider web with all of the different lines.  These straps meet in the back at a wider top triangle than most thongs.  The straps add a pleasant image to the sides of the thong as it allows a section of skin to show that is usually revealed when wearing a thong anyways, but this adds a level of excitement and sex appeal.  Another thing you will notice is the built in pouch in the front that enhances your bulge.  Slipping the pair on, it is important to make sure you get your entire package into the pouch in front for the best profile and comfort.

The thong held up quite well during my workday as I did all of the normal movements of sitting, standing, walking, and driving.  I enjoy giving underwear test runs through the work day because it is important to find pairs that can be a significant part of your drawer and become in rotation for everyday wear and not just special occasions.  The strap in back never felt uncomfortable which I appreciate with thongs.  Nothing is worse than wearing a thong where the back strap rubs or irritates your butt all day.  All of the straps stayed in place and were comfortable all day long.  The extra straps on the side didn’t bunch up or tighten the pair at all.  The only slight discomfort I felt during the day was how tight the front pouch was around my package.  I consider myself average in that department and I felt as though the front pouch was too constricted throughout the day.  I have never worn a cockring for any length of time but that is what I felt like it probably resembled.  For some, this may be a pro and not a con.

I purchased a medium as that is my normal size and the underwear stayed true to size.  As I mentioned above, the only area I did not feel that it fit right was in the enhancing front pouch.  I would not rule this out and would definitely wear this pair again.  It was not enough to turn me off from the pair.  The pair still continues to turn me on and hopefully a partner when seen!

Andrew Christian TROPHY BOY SPIDER THONG 9543

Andrew Christin 9568 Trophy Boy G-StringTo continue my Andrew Christian marathon week I decided to try out the new Andrew Christian Trophy Boy G String.  First I have to say that I love how companies like Andrew Christian can make both styles of thongs, the g string and the thong.  Many people may think they are similar but their structure is different and I appreciate anyone who is able to understand the two separately.  This g-string is built like most others which features extra thin straps along the waist band and up the back with a very little pouch in front to cover the package.

When I first slipped the pair on, I was in awe of its beautiful sexy look.  Thongs and g-strings have such a signature look that they make you feel sexy and take you to a new persona the moment you put them on.  I love this about them.  For me, I feel different and I feel sexy and that is what underwear should make you do.  It should be a showcase of how you feel.  I made sure all of the straps were perfectly in place before I slipped some pants on and proceeded with my day.  There is a nice little “Trophy Boy” tag on the side strap and yes, today, I was my own trophy boy!  I instantly felt like I had nothing on underneath my pants which was great!  Nothing was tight or uncomfortable.  The sides and back felt naked and the strap up the back did not rub or feel awkward in anyway.  Even if you are a beginner with thongs, I think this pair would not intimidate you.

The whole day I felt naked underneath my pants or like anything was barely there.  This is a great feeling because it shows an incredible attention to comfort and allows something so sexy such as a g-string to become a pair of underwear you can wear outside of the bedroom.  One of the only negative things about the wear and tear of the g-string is that the thin straps on the side will twist and turn with your movement all day.  If you are OCD, you will find yourself adjusting the strap to get the “Trophy Boy” tag facing correctly and everything looking just right.  The front pouch is nice because it has the flexibility to be as wide or as narrow as you want it to be.  Like the side straps, the pouch will bunch up as the day goes on.  A simple adjustment can fix this in no time.

For the basic g-string, this pair takes it a step up.  It’s beautiful in looks and despite a few small adjustments needed here and there, it is a perfect addition to the sexy side of your drawer.  The bottom line is, this g-string stands for GREAT!

Andrew Christian week continues tomorrow with a hump day special!  Stay tuned….

Andrew Christin 9568 Trophy Boy G-String

141772I guess I had better preface this review by saying it’s been a while since I’ve been able to write about mens underwear for UNB. It’s been even longer since I have had any new underwear to review, and in many ways I am starting fresh. There has been a lot going on in my life that has kept me away from the underwear industry and worse, writing about underwear. But after a long time on the sidelines and a bit more stability in my life, I am finally ready to get back into the swing of things here on UNB.

I figured the easiest way to blog about underwear is to actually give myself a specific pair to write about, so I hit up the Memorial Day Sale that just wrapped up at and came away with a pair of underwear I’ve had my eye on for months. I am talking about the Doreanse “Warrior Thong,” which is still available at and a few other online retailers. A few things attracted me to this thong from the get-go. First, I had heard good things about the brand, specifically that their thongs are worth a try, but secondly and far more prominently I was really drawn in by the look. The cut was masculine without looking too much like some thongs that can be easily mistaken for a jockstrap.

While I wouldn’t call myself thong-obsessed (I prefer briefs 8 times out of 10 for daily wear), I do like the support thongs offer (when they fit right) and if I can find those thongs and g-strings that add just the right amount of flair without being too flashy I will usually pull the credit card out for them. I work a desk job that happens to require me to move around quite a bit, so this thong got a very full day’s worth of work in. I probably got up from my desk 15-20 times today, including a trip to the car wash and Chipotle (yum) for lunch, the only thing I did not do today was work out as I am getting over a brief cold. Needless to say, this thong went through a tough day’s worth of activity and performed flawlessly. I never once had to go to the bathroom to “re-adjust” or never once felt any discomfort with this thong. Most thong-guys would tell you that the best thongs are the ones you can wear all day and forget that you’re wearing underwear at all, and the Warrior Thong fits firmly in that category.

Once you pull this thong on, the first thing you’ll notice is the quality, but that wasn’t the case when I was pulling it out of the packaging. Attached to the pouch and the back “string/thong” material is about an inch worth of ribbed cotton (think “wife beater” tank top) which aside from the stitching that holds it to the waistband has little structure. I was worried that this would roll up and get uncomfortable, but if you get the right size, and get this thong on the correct way, it won’t move. Somewhat ironically, I figured out that these strips of ribbed cotton I was worried about may actually be what may have kept me from passing on this thong altogether. Why? Well if you were to take it away, you would be left with just another run-of-the-mill thong that looks like a jock (think CK Body Thong), which is a style I tend to stay away from.

Aside from the masculine, “Warrior” look this thong gives its wearer, there cannot be enough said about the thong’s most redeeming quality. Its comfort. Holy smokes this thing is comfortable! I attribute the comfort to two things: 1.) The bulk of the thong is made of a 45/45 modal/cotton blend, which for my 200-some pair collection is the most comfortable fabric blend out there. 2.) Getting the right size, which is crucial to every thong’s success on a guy. I am in the process of losing weight, but even when I am at my best, attainable weight I am still in a size 36 pant (I’m currently 6’4″ 240 with an athletic build). I bought this thong in XL which fits a 37-38″ waist, according to the Doreanse size chart. Some of the online reviews on said this runs small, which is why I decided to go to the size bigger than my pant size. I was initially nervous that it would be too big, because athletically cut thongs tend to run big, but the XL fits wonderfully on me and since I am somewhat well endowed, even if the L fit my waist, the pouch would be too cramped. So when you go get this thong, make sure you order one size up from your pant size and you’ll still get the support you require.

I say  when because there is no reason for you not to buy this thong. I am so confident that you will love this thong that I would say that it’s the perfect thong for the guy who’s been kicking around the idea of buying his first one. Or, if you’re more of an Aficianado of the style like me, you can’t go wrong with this pair and the diversity the Warrior Thong’s style will bring your thong collection. I say when because even when it isn’t on sale it’s only $15 at and right now it is on sale for $11.25!!! though, it is backordered. All that means is that you’ll have to wait an extra week or two to get it delivered, and that this review is spot-on!

Like the underwear industry and UNB, I could not stay away from this thong – and boy am I glad I finally got it and I am even more happy that I could share this review of it as my first post back here at UNB.

Picture from

61qx7Zz9ETL._SY606_Having been a lover of underwear for over 10 years it only seemed natural to seek out an outlet for me to share my love with other likeminded men.  This led me to the incredibly educational yet intriguing blog of Underwear News Briefs.  Cheeky in its title, I knew I had found a place that I could call home and a group of guys that I could call a team.  Who wouldn’t want to play for an underwear team? 🙂

To break in my first review on UNB, I decided to take advantage of a pair of underwear that brought two of my favorite things together.  I am a brief, jock, and thong guy.  Many men can get concerned about taking that plunge into the jockstrap or thong realm for fear of it appearing “too gay” or “feminine,”  but not me.  I enjoy the two for their sexy look, feel, and showcase of my favorite part of the male body; the butt.  Imagine my excitement when I learned that Andrew Christian created the Show It Jock Thong, combining two of my favorites into one exceptional pair of underwear.  It took me no time to have one be mine.  I have had a few other pairs of Andrew Christian underwear in briefs, jocks, and thongs before and have enjoyed all of my previous purchases.

I decided to give the pair a good long day of use to get a sense of its comfort level and flexibility in my day.  After stepping out of the shower, I pulled them up and slid all of the straps into position.  One strap circling each of my butt cheeks while one strap slid nicely along the center of my butt to the waistband.  The perfect jock thong combo!  At first feel, everything is where it is supposed to be and holding everything in place nicely.  I did notice some additional support in the pouch which seemed to offer a closer body feel around the testicles, to keep them up and in place.

My day consisted of my typical 9 to 5 job where I do various normal activities of driving, sitting, standing, and walking.  I felt comfortable for a majority of my day, feeling like I was wearing a pair that offered all of the coverage and support I needed, as far as everyone knew.  Under my suit, I know I showed a different naughty side.  There is something appealing in the mind about being a businessman in a suit on the outside and knowing that this incredibly sexy look is hidden underneath.  I went out to lunch with coworkers, had meetings, and worked at my desk, all in a state of comfort.  At times, the tighter straps by the testicles required some adjusting to keep everything comfortable, which seems normal in any pair of underwear at some point during the day.  It seemed as though I would occasionally have to lift everything up to free them of the straps around the package because they got too tight up against the testicles.

I am a 32″ waist and purchased the Medium which covers 30-32 inch waists.  Everything fits me fine and I made it through the whole day without feeling like I was wearing underwear that was too small or too big.  It fit just right.  I feel that they have sized this pair to truth and the future purchasers will hopefully not have any problems with this choice.

Overall, this is a very sexy pair of underwear that add something different to an ever expanding drawer.  Men who appreciate a jockstrap but are nervous about trying a thong may feel that this is a good middle step to take.  Not only is it sexy but it is functional.  You can make it comfortably through a work day, including lunch and meetings, without feeling uneasy about what is under your khakis.  My only dislike with the pair was the pouch as I did find myself having to adjust myself a few times during the day from the way the strap set against one side of my testicles.  Another major complaint is that I only see it available in black!  I am hoping more colors become available so I can add many of these too my underwear drawer.

Andrew Christian did not let me down in my excitement of a jock and thong combination.  I recommend this pair to anyone who enjoys wearing a jockstrap or a thong and to anyone looking to fix their intimidation of a thong.  I look forward to wearing this in the future, especially on an upcoming date 🙂 Stay tuned……

112904-97-far-frontI am reviewing the Gregg Homme Snakeskin Thong from the Gregg Homme New Collection. So first let me preface this review by saying, I am deathly afraid of snakes. I absolutely cannot stand them. I can’t even watch them on TV without have to leave the room. However, when I got these in the mail, I couldn’t wait to get them on. The initial look and feel of these were amazing. There was not way I was going to be running in the opposite direction from these bad boys. Not only was the styling really cool, but they were from Gregg Homme so the “sexy” factor was going to be awesome as well. This particular style come in string, boxer brief and brief cuts.

Ok, so I am a thong guy! I don’t mind wearing them at all. The “floss” effect doesn’t annoy me one bit. I think they are sexy and most guys give them a bad wrap. I have not always been a fan but keeping an open mind when it comes to undies, is something that I have always tried to do. I wore this pair to work on day and they did a really good job. It was a pretty average day of meetings and sitting at my desk, but I really didn’t mind these at all. The pouch up front was very room and held everything in place. It also seemed to lift my package a little while gave the illusion that it was bigger, which was something else that I really liked. I will take all the help I can get! The waistband is only ½ an inch thick so it is very minimal and it’s made out of a faux-suede material, which is super, soft and comfy. They also have the Gregg Homme Logo stitched to the waistband front and center. The pattern is so amazing. It really looks like true snakeskin. The material is soft and stretchy, so your “snake” has plenty of room to grow if it needs too!

I got a size medium for this review, and it fit great. I usually wear a medium and these fit true to size. The pouch up front was roomy and added plenty of support and the string up the back was thin and hardly noticeable at all. These are all things that I look for in a great fitting thong. One of the other things that I really liked about this thong is the “Y” shaped back. Most thongs are just a string from the bottom of the pouch all the way up the back. These added a little more sexiness as the pattern is carried around to the Y-Back, This added just a little extra coverage and stability to the back of the waistline. I wouldn’t feel the need to go up or down a size if you are thinking about purchasing these. They are very true to size!

Like I said, I wore these all day at work and I thought they did a great job. However, I would probably keep these in the drawer for a date night or when I know they will get the attention they deserve. But it is nice to know that they will work for everyday wear if I am feel like adding a little “sexy” to my work day. The pattern and fit are also amazing and everything about the thong is spot on. The one thing that I didn’t like, and this is so small, but the seam where the pouch and the “thong” met up was a little bulky. Nothing that would make sure throw these to the side by any means, but it was something that I noticed and is important when finding a great thong!

Overall, I really like this thong. When I found out I was getting it, I really wasn’t sure what to think, but I am so glad that I had the opportunity to review this. I don’t think this is the thong for the “first time thong buyer”, but if you like thongs and have worn them before, this is one you should add to your wish list. The pattern along makes me what to try one of the other cuts from this collection. The material is awesome and just an overall well constructed thong! I have worn this a couple times now since I have received it to review, and every time I put it on, I love it just a little more!


  • The Pattern and Material is one that you have to see and experience to really get an idea of how AWESOME it is.
  • The Y-Back adds a little extra coverage around back but doesn’t take away from any other part of these undies.
  • The waistband is thin and amazing comfortable. Didn’t dig in and everything stayed right where it needed to.
  • The Pouch is roomy and supportive.


  • The only one that I have is the little seam between the pouch and the thong is a little bulky.

1124-Cowboy-Ambiance-1I will be the first to admit I’m not a “thong guy.” Not saying I don’t like them but my usual go to pair is a brief. But, when Gregg Homme sends a thong to review, I knew I had to give it a go. The pair they sent is the Cowboy Thong. When I saw it in Vegas I loved it. I just wish I had the chaps to go with it! But I only got the thong!

Gregg Homme has consistently made amazing underwear. Every pair I have ever received have fit amazing and been able to wear through out the day with any problems. So, anytime I get a new pair from them they come from a high standard! I will admit I was kinda excited to try this pair. Why you ask? Well the thong has a pouch that is sheer but has a design laid over it, so it doesn’t show your business but is super sexy.

When I pulled it out of the package the first thing that concerned me was the pouch. Yes, I love a great pouch and need the room up front. Previous pairs have been made out of super stretchy material and I never worried, this one was more rigid, for a lack of better word, material. There wasn’t a lot of give so I hoped it would fit. I slid them on and they did fit pretty well. I will say it amazed me how well it fit. The pouch as supper supportive and felt great.

I decided to wear these to two different holiday parties. I will say my chief concern was would I show a whale tale in my jeans, I wore lower rise jeans and it could definitely show when I bent over. But I wore a longer shirt and I don’t think it showed. As the night went on I could tell it haven’t worn a thong often. The string bothered me a little when I sat and leaned forward. But it wasn’t annoying I think I was just not used to wearing one. When I was standing and mingling I really forgot I had it on. I really felt super sexy wearing this and no one knew what I had on!

That is prob the best thing about wearing super sexy undies. It makes you feel amazing. I think we need to treat our selves with undies like these every so often. Also, it’s great to step outside our underwear comfort box and wear something we wouldn’t wear in a normal day. Mix it up and have fun.

The sizing in Gregg Homme is pretty spot on with the size guide. I wore an XL with my 36-38 waist. The sizes can range from XS to XL so check the size chart but I don’t think you will have much issues with sizing with them.


  • Great Design that is super fun
  • Good supportive Pouch
  • Just fun to wear to a party


  • String bothered me a little


  • Daily Fit – 9

If you’re a thong fan I would say get these, or if you want to step outside your comfort zone try them out! Gregg Homme furnished this pair for review. It is available on their site for $38.95. Also available in the colors, Steel and Sand. The pair I reviewed was the Sand.

Howdy folks. This is Phillip here, the new kid in town. Today, I bring you my review of the Joe Snyder Activewear G-String in blue, on of the many cuts available in the new Activewear line, to include the bikini, jock strap, and boxer. Having tried a few different items from Joe Snyder, I was a little apprehensive, as I never have been a huge fan of the brand. However, a pair of underwear never intimidates me, so in I jumped. Upon first glance, I noticed that the fabric was different than the other undies I’ve worn from JS. Made of 80% Polyamide, 20% Elastane, which felt smooth to the touch. The blue color that I received was very attractive looking as well, leading me to believe that the numerous colors and the camo print would look just as great. All in all, I was impressed on first look.

I chose to wear my review pair first thing, without washing. Spent most of the day sitting through classes, so pretty much casual type of environment. I then wore them to work later that evening, which doesn’t require a lot of movement. Once washed, I then took them for a spin at the gym. Overall, I didn’t have any issues while working out, or just sitting and walking, making the Activewear G-String a suitable piece for multiple uses.

I’m a bit of a large guy, in fact, that’s the size I usually wear in most brands. Joe Snyder runs a bit small in their sizing, it seems, cause it felt a little too snug for my personal preference in the waist. The tag reads that a large is 36-39 inches, which fits with the American sizing of a large being 36-38, for the most part, but it was just a little snug on me. I would honestly recommend wearing the next size up from what you normally wear in order to find an accurate fit.

Joe Snyder’s biggest plus, in my opinion, is their availability of colors for their underwear. I love the fact that, instead of the common black, white, red, and blue that you get with most brands, you also have options such as yellow, green, pink, purple, and even mesh, for the Activewear line of products. Everybody needs a bit of color to liven up his top drawer. I will also note that even though I expected it based on past expierence with Joe Snyder thongs, there wasn’t any “grinding”, as I call it, or rubbing of the area right above the crack. I’m also a fan of the waistband type of Gstrings and thongs, so bonus points for me. The biggest issue was that there was “gaping”, or where the fabric in the crotch doesn’t stay on the skin on the sides, instead leaving a little space between the skin and the edge of the underwear.

All in all, the Joe Snyder Activewear G-String was a decent pair of undies. Based on past expierences with this brand, I wasn’t expecting too much, and will say I was surprised to find that I liked them a little more than previous efforts from the company. Is this my all time favorite pair of underwear? Not by a long shot, but I will give credit where credit is due. Enjoyable and comfortable, with an appealing aesthetic that is sure to catch the eye.

Thanks for hearing me out. I’m very into not just undies, but to try and spread the word on whats good and whats not, and I only hope I can help somebody out there avoid a trap I’ve fallen into on more than one occasion. The most important piece of clothing is the underwear the put on first thing, and if I can help make that choice the best for somebody, I’ll consider myself a success. Until next time, this is Speedosoldier85, signing out.

As you might have read in an earlier post (Operation Thong), I had the opportunity to wear the Cocksox Sonar Swim Thong as my first thong on the beach. This swim thong is made of high quality Italian lycra in a cool blue, white and black mirco camo print. They also feature a protruding shaped pouch and a triangle style back. I was very impressed initially, but worried about this maximum exposure. This is part of the Sonar Collection which also comes in a more modest brief and trunk style.

As you know I wore these a few times to the beach, both just for laying out and also playing in the water. I was concerned that the minimal pouch was going to not be adequate coverage, however the pouch was amazing! Its shape really pushed out a nice profile to hold you in. Even when getting out of the waves. The front is quite low (manscaping is a must), so be careful. The back had a great amount of fabric to stay right in place. I would recommend this swim thong for special events or somewhere that you want to be the center of attention.

The sizing for Cocksox is based of real waist measurements, not your jeans size, so please keep that in mind with ordering. Also, some Cocksox has some models available with different sized pouches; this style has a snug pouch, which might not fit everyone.

This swim thong has a lot of features I like; the shaped center seam pouch keeps everything in place and leaves little to the imagination. The stitching throughout is done quite well, no itching or adjusting. The waist seam features a tiny sewn in elastic waistband to help keep your suit up.

I am happy to say that I have worn this swim thong numerous times since the original post and will continue to next summer. It is a welcome addition for anyone who is looking to get some sun on those buns. I plan on getting a few more even!
