Today we continue our run-through of some of the best briefs under $15. Yesterday we got started with the very nice Doreanse Micro Brief.
Today we take a closer look at European underwear super brand, Sloggi. I tried the Sloggi Basic Mini Brief, £9.17 (approximately US $13.99), which, again, offers great value for a quality product. This is perhaps the most traditional of the three styles (the last of which we will get to tomorrow), featuring a 96% cotton/4% elastane blend, 2” side seams, a very comfortable fit, and a SLOGGI logo printed around the waistband.
I was immediately comfortable when I put the brief on: the pouch is comfortable; the fabric is soft; and there is full coverage in the back. I was able to wear this brief to the gym and to work and didn’t think twice whether it would be suitable for either venue. Although I chose black, the Sloggi Mini Brief is available in a number of colors so, again, it is great if you want to add some color to your underwear collection.
For me, the only downside was the printed, elastic waistband, which is a styling feature that I tend to avoid in general. Also, given the fact that the brief reminds me of some other styles that I have already, I did not feel like it added something different to my underwear collection. Overall, though, I think that this is a very good product and offers terrific value given its reasonable price.

Let me start by using a sentence that should make you want to read further…I LOVE THESE HIPSTERS. Most American guys have probably never heard of Sloggi, but it’s actually one of the top selling underwear brands in the world. Although it’s not available in any stores in the U.S., there are a few European websites where we can buy the brand. And trust me, this is a brand you’ll want to learn more about.
One of their newest ranges of underwear is the Superfine Hipster. When I received a pair to review, I looked at the box and thought “if these look half as good on me as they do on the model, I’m sure I’ll love them”. So then I tried them on and was truly impressed by the fit and feel…and yes, I think they look great on me.
So what differentiates these hipsters from others? I love how Sloggi developed a thin, light-weight cotton fabric (85% cotton / 15% elastane) that’s both comfortable and durable. And they used the fabric, along with a ½ inch thick waistband, to design a quality hipster that offers masculine sex appeal – hugging the body to support the crotch as well as the backside while always staying in place. So the overall effect is a hipster that helps make you look and feel your best.
Because of the versatility of this underwear, you can feel confident wearing them whether you’re going on a date or heading to the gym. You can even wear them under fairly tight clothing without worrying about underwear lines. I really don’t think these hipsters can be improved. Great job Sloggi!
|Style and look?||A hipster (available in black or white) that offers masculine sex appeal.|
|Suitable for?||Suitable for everyday wear.|
|Fit and quality?||Form-fitting comfort and quality construction.|
|Is the price right?||They’re well priced at approximately $20.|
|Best thing about it?||If I had to pick just one aspect, it would be the fit.|

So, British newspaper, the Sun, recently ran a fun little article, testing performance underwear men in a quite unusual way…
They summoned a bunch of fit male models and teamed up with Thorpe Park to send send the models on Britain’s most extreme new rollercoaster, The Swarm, in just athletic undies.
G forces beyond your wildest dreams along with terrifying twists and turns — proven to have the same effect on the body as a game of high-impact sport — it was the ideal setting for an extreme underwear test.
And the models took no less than 3 turns!
See it pictured below.
Other high-scoring undies included the Nike Pro Combat Shorts and Lonsdale Men’s Trunks. Go here to read the entire article over at www.thesun.co.uk.
When will they be doing this test at Six Flags??
