Hello my Gubbers! It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, and what better way to return than with Jake Joseph. You know how I feel about my JJ undies, I nominated them for brief of the year in 2012.
Very little has changed with Jake Josephs since they first came out. Do you know why? Because there is no need for change! That has always been what I have loved about Jake Joseph; they have a classic chic style with unbelievable comfort. They are not loud, in your face nor do they try too hard to make a statement. They are timeless and always look and feel good.
These underwear are designed after the suave sophisticated mad men era of the 60’s with a modern sexiness, they are not trying to keep up with ever changing fads. I personally have about 10 pair and they are as awesome now as they were the day I first put them on.
Enough with the praise, you get the point, I love Jake Joseph underwear. Recently, however, Jake has made a modification. In addition to the classic Jake Joseph, they have created the Jake Joseph Adhesion. I’m not sure I’m the biggest fan of the name but it’s very descriptive of the product.
The Adhesion has thin red elastic/rubber line around each leg to hold the underwear in place. It keeps them from riding up. This makes it a great option for men with active lifestyles. Other than that they are the same great underwear with that same smooth lasting style.
Like all Jake Josephs they are made with the incredible combination of 95% bamboo viscose and %5 spandex, a material perfect for underwear. After wearing this material all other fabric seems unqualified.
Honestly I wasn’t sure I’d like this new addition to the underwear. In the past I have worn underwear with leg gripping rubber and it has seemed uncomfortable. And personally I have never had a problem of underwear riding up my leg, yet I hear some men do.
However I was pleasantly surprised. Jake Joseph has kept this elastic grip pretty thin so you don’t feel it hugging your leg and cutting off circulation like some bike shorts I have do. Really after the initial sensation of the rubber holding my skin I didn’t notice it at all through daily wear. They were just as comfortable as ever other Jake Joseph I own.
So good work Jake on another magnificent pair of underwear! I liked them so much I put them in my 2015 Underwear Calendar, pictured below on my February model.
Thank you Jake for the amazing undies, although my favorite is still the classic brief by Jake Joseph, and all you GUB fans really need to have at least one Jake Joseph in your collection!
