I’ve been a briefs guy for as long as I can remember, so I was a little skeptical about trying the Croota hipster boxer brief. These distinctive boxer briefs, however, merit an exception to my policy. Croota, an Australian line, produces a substantial number of choices, all of which feature bold styling and branding. I tried the Neon 90s Hipster. The one detail that made it really stand out to me is the texturing on the back of the underwear.
The boxer brief is made of very smooth fabric, but there are three textured lines on the back, running from the butt to the thighs, which I just felt compelled to touch. I am sure that if someone else were wearing this boxer brief, I’d feel compelled to run my hands over the smooth fabric and textured lines, too. Simply put, this boxer brief is meant to be touched.
The Neo 90s boxer brief is made of a smooth 50% viscose, 45% polyester, 5% elastane blend. The styling is bold with a big CROOTA logo on the thick, yellow waistband. (The light gray version of the boxer brief features a light blue waistband.) In addition to the textured lines, there is a graphic and some text on the back, which is also textured, which I thought was gratuitous.
The front pouch is contoured and comfortable. Personally, I prefer an understated look – especially with respect to the waistband – but for the most part, the boxer brief isn’t so bold that I feel awkward wearing it. I think that the biggest testament to the boxer brief is that I washed it at the end of the day so I could wear it again.
