Todd Sanfield Underwear

Category

Todd Sandfield has really taken his brand to the next level. The underwear and swimwear have been top-notch and I know many of you have been wondering when he will release a swim thong, well that wait is over. He just dropped the Shore Thong!

This new swim thong is available in three different colors. Those colors are Sand (tan), Onyx Sand (black), and Otter (brown). The one interesting thing about this new thong is it has an inner drawstring. Most thongs don’t have this feature, so I’m curious how this will work out. I have a feeling that it won’t cause too many issues.

The cost of this new thong is $70. Which is a premium for swimwear. However, the quality of Todd’s line has been impeccable. I do think that you won’t be disappointed with the pair. If you get a pair let us know!

We are bringing back our Swimwear Sunday segment! This is a post where we profile a pair of swimwear you guys should check out. It’s perfect for your next trip to the beach or pool. The first pair we are going to share is the Todd Sanfield Shallow Swim Brief in Discus.

I have tried and LOVED, Todd’s underwear. it’s some of the most well-made and comfy on the market. He really pays attention to small details and how underwear fits on a guy. His swimwear I’m sure is just as amazing as his underwear.

The reason I chose this pair is the print. The Shallow Swim Brief comes in many prints and solids but my eye is drawn to this print! I love the mix of orange and blue, it will stand out in a crowd. The Shallow Swim Brief is a smaller cut brief but still has a full back.

Here are some reasons we chose this pair this week:

  • Comes in amazing prints – including this print pictured here
  • The cut is a full-back but not too small.
  • Made of quick-drying material
  • Todd makes amazing gear that fits incredible

PAIR: Todd Sanfield Shallow Swim Brief
COLOR: Discus
SIZES: X-Small – X-Large
FABRIC: Exterior: 80% Nylon / 20% Elastane Lining: 80% Nylon / 20% Elastane
PRICE: $80.00

What’s New at Todd Sanfield?

A revised Platinum Brief, much better colors that go nicely with the TENCEL fabric and a more comfortable fit (our personal favorite).

We added two new Defiant Collection styles + many new colors and one print.

Our Essential Collection has a new single-lined bikini brief + three new colors.

Lastly, the most popular sold out items have been restocked.

When a new line of swimwear drops, I don’t usually expect 17 pairs. That’s a massive collection of swimwear. However, that is what Todd Sanfield did this week. He expanded his swimwear to include more color and prints. I have yet to try a pair of his swimwear but I have tried the undies he makes and if they are similar, I’m sure they will be freaking amazing.

Todd has really taken is brand to the next level and grown into a brand that poised to be at the top of the industry. He’s not slowing down and is making amazing pair after amazing pair. Here are the new pairs:

Rating: 9.4/10 (Average of the ratings below)

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

Pros

  • Made out of amazing fabric
  • It has some fantastic color choices 
  • A tremendous brief cut that can move and be active. 

Cons

  • I wasn’t a fan of the waistband, but that’s a personal preference
  • If you are a print fan, these are just in solids
  • Some of you may see the price as a barrier. 

UNB Tim recommendation: Pick these up if you want a fantastic pair with great fabric. It’s a pair you can wear to the office or the gym. The cut of these will allow you a great range of movement. I’m impressed with the quality and construction of this pair. 

After wearing the micro brief, I was super excited to try the Sports Brief. The fabric for this collection is impressive. I can tell that no corners were cut for this line. The big difference between the pairs is the Sports Brief has a waistband and higher-cut sides. When it came to wearing it, I was like, let’s get this pair on. 

I wasn’t back to work for my part-time job yet, so I didn’t give these a great work out. I wore these mainly around the house and whatever errands I had to run. These, like the Micro briefs, felt amazing. Fabric is super important to me, and pairs that feel great on me get worn often. In my average day, the pair felt great. No issues with it at all. I noticed that I liked the Micro better than the sports because it has no waistband. This isn’t an issue with the pair, just my personal preference over the two. 

As I have mentioned, this entire line is very well made. Todd Sanfield is making his brand a luxury brand. The high-end fabrics and outstanding construction. I mean, I don’t mind paying $30 or more for a pair that is well made and built to last. Todd Sanfield is one of those worth the money and will last longer than other brands. 

Again I am so happy he has added XX-Large to his sizes. Before, I could never wear his brand, but I am glad I get to try these pairs. The sizing is spot on for me. I didn’t have any issues with my size. I think he has pretty standard sizing for his brand. Again always double-check the sizing charts and if. You are on the upper end; go a size up.

This review features the new Defiant line from Todd Sanfield, specifically the Nocturnal Micro Brief.  All opinions of the review are my own and were not influenced by Todd Sanfield.

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

  • Daily Fit: 9/10
  • Sizing: 1010
  • Construction: 10/10
  • Styling: 10/10
  • Daily Performance: ?11010

Pros

  • The pair is made from fantastic fabric
  • Sizing goes up to XX-Large 
  • This is a traditional bikini cut

Cons

  • I can only come up with minor cons for this 
  • Some guys may not like it only comes in solid colors 
  • Some guys may want bolder colors 

UNB Tim recommendation: I am impressed by the collection and the new pairs. Todd is making underwear for all. The quality and fabrics are impeccable, and the designs are classic and modern at the same time. I think a classic bikini is one of the sexiest cuts a guy can wear. No matter your size. These go into the MUST BUY category for me. 

We have covered Todd Sanfield for many years on the blog. However, I had never worn them before because the brand never had pairs in my size. That is until now! The brand has started producing XX-Large! I talked to Todd, and he was telling me how amazing this new line was, and I picked up two pairs during the Holiday sale. This pair and the Sport Brief (which will be a review next week).

The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the package was the fabric. It felt amazing, and I was looking forward to putting them on. These are a true bikini, which is my favorite cut of underwear. As I slid the on, I was not wrong; they felt so good. Todd has done a fantastic job with this collection. After years of designing underwear, he has refined his brand and is making it a luxury brand. 

One thing I want to note is that these were delayed in getting to me. I was like a kid going to the mailbox every day, hoping they would be delivered.  This was not an issue with Todd, but with the Postal Service. I know many out there have experienced this and don’t blame the brand for this happening. This is out of their control, and they are just as frustrated as you are with the delivery disruption. 

I wore these around the house on the holidays. I loved the fit and feel of the Micro Briefs. One thing that impressed me most was the fit (more on that in sizing).  The pair is one of my new favorites. It has all I love. Those things are the fantastic fabric that feels amazing, a good pouch that is supportive and snug, and a great fit that doesn’t ride up and holds its shape all day. 

The fabric and construction of this pair are amazing. As I mentioned above, I think Todd is becoming one of the new luxury brands on the underwear market. He has paid attention to the fabrics, the cuts, and the market. I’m super impressed that he has expanded into larger sizes. He’s not just a model for the brand but a smart businessman. 

Now let’s talk about those expanded sizing. One thing that annoys me is there is a world of underwear that is out of my reach. I’m a 40-42, and at 6’4″, I’ll never be a 31-32 waist. It’s just now how I am built. I think 36-38 is the smallest I can be and still look healthy. The new XX-Large fits size 40/42. This fits me like a glove and felt terrific. I had no issues with it being a bit snug or too big. I can’t wait to put this pair in my regular rotation.  


I am impressed by the collection and the new pairs. Todd is making underwear for all. The quality and fabrics are impeccable, and the designs are classic and modern at the same time. I think a classic bikini is one of the sexiest cuts a guy can wear. No matter your size. These go into the MUST BUY category for me.

One brand that has a really great new collection is Todd Sanfield. I will have two reviews coming up soon with his new undies. However in the mean time check out the new Onyx Sand Deep swim brief. “Constructed with the clean look and fit of our Essential Brief, we were able to create a swim brief with the same timeless, understated design that is made of a rich, silky smooth, quick-drying fabric. Front-lined. Inner drawstrings.”

Yesterday we brought you the video from Todd Sanfield. I talked briefly to him yesterday and he was saying the new collection has improved on the previous designs. So, he talked me into buying some undies and give them a try.

One other new thing is the XX-Large size, Before now I could never fit in Todd’s underwear. But I”m giving it a try. I’m very excited. I will have reviews of the Micro Brief above and Sport brief from the new Defiant collection.
