So, I got my first shipment of undies from UNB to review, and boy did I get a great deal. Two pairs of the new Gigo collection for summer of 2009. I had seen the new wild styles in a couple of catalogs and online, and was intrigued. When they showed up, “LOUD” would be the word I would use to describe them. I got Silver Pink trunk and the purple, almost leopard printed, Purple Posse Trunks. Both pairs are not your typical “Tighty–Whities”, but if you are looking for some fun looking undies any of the Gigo line is going to be exactly what you are looking for.

Both pairs of the Gigo undies are cut a little small, but still fit very nicely; no fudging room allowed fellas. Both pairs I received came in a size medium, which fit my size 32 waist pretty well. The Gigo line fit a little lower on the waist as well. The fabric on both pairs is some of the softest that I have felt in a well put together pair of undies. It is thin, but very high quality blend of nylon, Lurex, and spandex, allowing for great movement for everyday wear.

The pouch of the Gigo line trunks is also very well cut, and reinforced with a little extra stitching. There is one seam up the back, but is not intrusive or noticeable at all. The Waistband is branded with the Gigo logo which is something that I like in a good pair of undies. Overall both these styles are fit and constructed very well.

For some guys, the styles that Gigo offers may be a turn off. I don’t think I would recommend wearing them to the gym, but for the guy that is looking for a fun night out on the town, in a pair of undies that feel good on the skin, offer the right amount of movement, and make you feel a little sexy; these are the styles you have been looking for.

The Gigo Silver Pink and Posse Trunks are $28.00 but also come in brief, g-string, and jockstrap, with pricing around $25.00. Gigo can be purchased at Underwear Station, which also offers many other styles, cuts and colors of the Gigo underwear line. I hope you have just as much fun in these undies as I did.


The perfect weather is when it gets warmer because the warmer it gets, the less clothes I have to wear. And, it’s obviously the perfect weather for a jock! That being said, I want to tell you about a very bold jock I recently had the opportunity to review. It is the Gigo jockstrap. Gigo is a brand from Brazil. They have bold and unique patterns and just the right amount of style. I will admit from a personal perspective that the pouches of the jocks are a bit loud and bold for me. Some of these patterns, however, I do like.

The first thing you should know about this jock as well as the whole line of briefs, boxers, and thongs from Gigo is that the sizes run small. This should always be kept in mind when making your purchase. Because of my “junk in the trunk” build and pouch requirements, I had to go with an extra large. At first, I was skeptical. As I was putting the jock on, I was thinking, “This isn’t going to fit!” After getting it on and realizing that it is meant to have a very low cut look, I decided to give it a try. I was also hesitant about the leg straps as they are a bit wider than I am used to. I gave the jock the benefit of the doubt and wore it for the day. The jock was very comfortable to my amazement. It wasn’t too tight or loose. It rode low on my waist but wasn’t uncomfortable. The pouch material wasn’t binding at all which is a necessity of mine. More room in the pouch would have been preferred. The waistband, leg straps, and pouch were soft and comfortable. The pouch itself was breathable and form fitting. I would say this jock is well put together. Once again, I have to say for the most part, Gigo underwear uses a smaller size scale and bigger guys like myself need to think about sizing-up from what you normally buy.

I love the look of Gigo because of it’s boldness and uniqueness. It has a large assortment of patterns from bold to exotic that should satisfy anyone’s tastes. I wore the jock all day and found it to be comfortable overall. I did not, however, get the opportunity to wear the jock to the gym. Based on the style and patterns, I would say this is more of a fashion jock than a workout jock. But, then again, who am I to judge what you wear under your gym shorts. Wear what you love because that is all that matters!

To sum up my review, I think the Gigo jockstrap is an exotic and bold jock with a lot of attitude.  I give it an overall rating of 4.6 on a scale of 5. This is based on the fact that the overall sizing runs small and the pouch, at least for me, could have used a bit more room.
