Men’s underwear review: KXSS slip briefs

By Jay

All men need a proper base of durable, comfortable, great-fitting everyday undies that don’t deteriorate too quickly – and which don’t cost a fortune. Here at GUB we are always on the lookout for candidates within this category, and we think found a rare gem in the KXSS slip.

Short for “Keep it simply sexy”, KXSS was started in 2011 by Chris Statham wiht the aim to develop high quality and stylish men’s underwear for men. Judging by the competition as we know it (mainstream underwear brands in the $10-20 range), KXSS is an extremely affordable option within the everyday underwear category.

At a mere $13 USD, the brand’s flagship brief style was a satisfactory experience all around as I tried it out for a week of all-day wear. Sure, you will find brands and brief styles out there that are more stylish and modern, others will have a more superior fit, while some will have better fabric composition. But all of these qualities come at a cost. Rarely will you find a pair of briefs that score top grades in all these categories without them costing $20+.

In short, the KXSS slip brief simply has one of the best quality-to-price ratio within the affordable price range and I would not hesitate to recommend you guys buying 3-6 pairs for your everyday underwear drawer.

What Verdict
Style and look? Classic, sexy brief cut with a relatively discrete waistband.
Suitable for? All-day purposes / everyday wear. Cotton-based so go for something more breathable when exercising.
Fit and quality? Very standard sizing. The quality and overall fit is very satisfactory for underwear at this price.
Is the price right? $13 (£7.99) for the brief/slip. Awesome value for money.
Best thing about it? Quality for money. This a very cheap option if you’re looking for high quality underwear at an affordable price. There’s even a 3-pair pack at just $37 USD.
Overall grade ★★★★✩

Strawberry-scented men’s underwear is now a reality! Also, see the brand new photos from Alexander Cobb Underwear.

As some of you may remember, we introduced you to the Danish underwear brand, Alexander COBB, back in February.

Recently, the Scandinavian underwear maker has published photo sets from a couple of shoots featuring underwear models, David and Danon. Enjoy these new pics below.

Fun fact we discovered form one their press releases… The brand has managed to manufacture a special fabric with original tattoos consisted of micro capsules, which are filled with strawberry fragrance. These micro capsules work with skin contact, and produce sweet strawberry fragrance that lasts for approximately 30 washes.

And you don’t have to worry about side effects. Regarding the micro capsules, researchers have declared that there is no side effect or skin infection associated with these micro capsules. Other than sweet and strawberry aroma filled capsules, the fabric used in these underwear products ensure the comfort, smoothing and freshness for consumers.

There you have it – strawberry-flavored undies. Who would have thought it…

The Alexander Cobb men’s underwear range includes briefs, boxers, and boxer shorts, and comes in 4 sizes (S, M, L, XL).  Each pair is made with designer quality elastic band, 92 percent cotton, and 8 percent lycra.

Go to www.alexandercobb.com to check out the entire collection.

Men’s underwear review – Envy Mens Wear jockstrap and trunks

By Eric

One of the most challenging things about buying underwear is choosing the right size.  For me, a 2xist or CK small fits just right, but if I wear something a little more adventurous, like Delio Dietz or Gregg Homme, I’ll choose a medium.  When I am not familiar with a brand, however, picking a size can be a crapshoot — especially if I cannot return!

One of the newer brands to hit the market, Envy Mens Wear seeks to resolve that dilemma by collapsing five size choices (XS, S, M, L, XL) into three (S/M, M/L, L/XL).  It’s a clever idea.  In theory, the S/M would fit like a medium that tends to run a little small; the M/L would fit like a medium that tends to run a little large; and so forth.  For guys like me who are often on the fence about sizing, the Envy size model removes the guesswork.

It’s a clever concept, but does it work in practice?  I tried three styles, which I review below, to find out.  The answer is yes and no.  It works in the sense that I had no trouble picking a size — I did not have to think about whether to choose a small or a medium; I just picked the Envy small/medium.  In practice, however, none of the three styles fit as I expected them to.  S/M didn’t feel like a smallish medium.  If felt like a medium, if not a larger medium.

One more thing about Envy Mens Wear: the company is a bit of an enigma.  Its website, envymenswear.com, features an extensive catalog of almost 70 styles – ranging from understated to gaudy (check out the red sequin thong!) – but tells us nothing about the company.  Further, the website does not provide basic information about (a) price or (b) the fabrications of its many styles.  Instead, I relied on the packaging to learn about the company.  It appears that the underwear is made in China and is imported by a company headquartered in the Miami Design District called The Next Adventure LLC.  The company shares an address with a women’s lingerie boutique called Baci, and you can purchase Envy underwear on Baci’s website, which is how I learned the prices mentioned in my reviews. You can also purchase Envy underwear fro a number of Australian websites.

The styles under review

In terms of the three styles, I tried the Logo Elastic, Low-Rise Jock; the Black and White Microfiber Trunk; and the Logo Sport Trunk.

The Logo Elastic, Low-Rise Jock is made of a comfortable 95% cotton/5% spandex blend and features the brand name, ENVY, printed on the waistband.  Of the three styles, the size problem was the most notable here.  This jock felt like a medium or even a large.  Is there anything particularly distinctive or exciting about them?  Not really.  The black straps provide a nice contrast to the white pouch and waistband; overall, however, it looked and felt like any “fashion jockstrap” that you can buy most places.

 Logo Elastic, Low-Rise Jock

What Verdict
Style and look? Fashion jockstrap.
Suitable for? Most environments where you might feel comfortable wearing a jockstrap – working out, hot date, underwear party, brunch.
Fit and quality? The small/medium skewed toward the medium/large; the cotton/spandex blend was soft and comfortable.
Is the price right? $24.99 is pretty consistent with the prices charged by competitors for similar styles.
Best thing about it? The black straps give this otherwise non-descript fashion jockstrap a distinct look.
Overall grade ★★✩✩✩

Black and White Microfiber Trunk 

The Black and White Microfiber Trunk was definitely the most notable selection.  It features a unique 95% nylon/5% spandex blend that had a distinct pattern – almost Zebra-like – and a texture that was new to me.  The S/M distinction was less pronounced here, likely due to the stretch of the microfiber material.  The cut was a little different from what I am used to wearing, as well.  The trunks sat low on my hips and sort of dipped in the back, which gave them a unique look.  Although I didn’t particularly respond to the Black and White Microfiber Trunk, I give Envy credit for bringing something new to the table with this style.

What Verdict
Style and look? Low-rise trunk featuring a distinct black and white pattern.
Suitable for? Any environment – the office, hanging out, dinner, the gym.
Fit and quality? Comfortable fit with a unique dip in the back.
Is the price right? $22.99 seems reasonable given the material and styling
Best thing about it? The unique texture of the fabric.
Overall grade ★★★★✩

The Logo Sport Trunk 

The Logo Sport Trunk features a “cute,” sporty look, which is well suited for a gay cruise.  It is made of a 90% polyester/10% spandex blend that felt a bit like swimwear, and features branding that is supposed to resemble the logo of a sports team.  I tried the blue trunks, which featured a Team ENVY shield printed in silver on the right thigh.  (Each color features a different logo.)  With respect to the fit, I thought that the Logo Sport Trunk was fairly comfortable.  The trunk sat low on my hips and the front pouch gave me a little lift.

What Verdict
Style and look? Athletic-inspired trunks.
Suitable for? You can wear these anywhere.
Fit and quality? Low-rise trunk with a lift in the pouch.
Is the price right? $22.99 is around the same price as similar athletic-inspired trunks.
Best thing about it? The youthful spirit of the design.
