Hello all you underwear lovers out there. Today we’re taking a look at the latest and greatest from one of the world’s leaders in men’s underwear fashion. 2(x)ist has a style that takes from bright and flashy as seen in their neon collection to this hyper masculine look of the military series. 2(x)ist has a very diverse look yet always exhibits an amazing style and look and is and has been at the forefront of the underwear world for men. So I am always excited to get a chance to look at review underwear from 2(x)ist.
I love the Military collection from 2(x)ist. When you first hear the name you would expect to see a bunch of camouflage prints but that is not all you will find. 2(x)ist has taken their “military” look in a way that captures the utilitarian and brute look of soldiers. The material is 57% cotton, 37% modal, and 6% spandex. It’s fabricated into a smooth look that has an edge. If you look closely it’s patterned into a rugged feel in that it doesn’t have a silky smooth shimmer but a look imitating Army issued undies. Yet the material is as soft, supportively stretchy and comfortable as any high quality underwear. It does come in a green and a grey camouflage but also comes in white, black, grey and green. It comes as a sports brief, a no-show brief and a no-show trunk. You may also get a matching square neck tank.
I have a green Military Sports Brief and love it. It fits great, feels great and looks great. The waistband on the underwear has a metallic silver shiny band with three thin green lines in the color of the underwear. That band color compliments the green really well, completely highlighting the military look. The elastic band is about an inch and a half so it’s large but not too big. The front has a lined and contoured pouch which is a good size, neither too small nor overly large, so it provides support and comfort. The brief has a fully covered back made with one piece of material. The strip between your legs is not too thick, so as to cause bunching, but wide enough to keep you covered; about 2 and a half inches. The front pouch and back are connected at the front hip by a small bridge of fabric giving it 2(x)ist’s signature “sports” look. The underwear is trimmed by the same colored fabric with three rows of stitching in a darker, almost black, thread. They look and feel great!
I also have a matching green tank. It’s made out of the same material and and has the same great look. The front neck line has a squared “U” cut. The sides have three double stitched lines which go up and arch around and go straight down the back. The stitching as in the underwear is of a dark green. The lines remind me of a 50’s movie theatres neon sign. Its contouring lines go well with the look of the tank top. On the left shoulder strap there is a silver tag with green letters showing 2xists logo. It can be worn as undershirt or on its own as a tank top.
I wore both of these garments and they were very comfortable and looked really good. I had them on throughout my day’s activities and even throughout the night. Like all good underwear they were doing their job so well I never even really noticed they were there except when I took my clothes off and was pleasantly surprised to see my hot undies! I washed them and wore them again and they showed no signs of wear. The quality is great and these undies should last you a long time. Thank you 2xist for these amazing Military style undies.
|Style and look?||The style and look of the Military collection is rugged, manly and sexy. They have managed to capture that masculine look and sexy roughness of a soldier. They have done this while keeping that classic 2(x)ist style.|
|Suitable for?||They are good for everyday use and wear while at the same time are great for showing off. The masculine style makes them a great pair to show off in the locker room at the gym. Guys need to show guys that they have them on!|
|Fit and quality?||The fit was perfect. 2(x)ist has been making underwear a long time now and know exactly how to make their underwear compliment your body. The quality is great with the trim being triple stitched. These undies could go into battle and last a soldier the whole time at war. Even if it were almost 10 years!|
|Is the price right?||The sports brief is $20 as is the no show brief, the trunk is $28 and the tank is also $28. That is not a bad price for a new piece of 2(x)ist undies. It’s about what you would expect to pay for a high quality name pair of underwear.|
|Best thing about it?||The best thing about the Military collection is that you get a great fit and useful pair of underwear that also look good enough to show off. You can wear these undies all day or for a special occasion such as to the GUB Grind.|
2(x)ist scores a perfect 5 stars with the Military collection! I know Christmas has past but maybe this could be a great post-Christmas present to yourself. It’s a great way to spoil your nether regions!

Merry Christmas guys!
We hope you all got a lot of exciting new underwear this morning.
On this wonderful Christmas Day we bring you some new underwear inspiration from Brazil!
The brand in question is the very intriguing and posh-looking Dot Underwear.
They carry a nice selection of our favorite cuts, including trunks, briefs, and jockstraps. And the best part is that since Dot Underwear originates from Brazil it’s much cheaper than competing American and European brands.
A pair of briefs will set you back no more than $13 – $18 USD.
They just launched a new colorful GOLD collection. Enjoy the pics below and go to www.lojadotgg.com.br to see the entire collection and shop online. Be aware, though, the website is not available in English, so consider using Google Translate to make some sense of it.
