So, did you catch the videos featuring the current Aware Soho men’s underwear collection?
Well, I’ve been lucky enough to try out a couple of items from this collection, including a pair of firetruck red Round Bum Shorties – which I decode as a low rise brief.
It’s my impression that in terms of fabric, fit, and quality this style is fairly indicative of what you generally can expect from Aware Soho underwear. And when it comes to color and design, you can have it any way you want. With 37 different color variations, the Round Bum Shorties range is endless!
Having been around since 2001, Aware Soho is somewhat of a dinosaur in the world of modern men’s underwear – and you can really sense they know what they’re doing. More about that in the review :)

|Style and look||As hinted above you should decode the Round Bum Shorties category as low briefs, bordering on square cuts. The low rise look is a modern classic these days, and the styles feels and looks slightly understated, yet very masculine. The wide sides and waistband, the sufficient back coverage, and – especially – the generous, double-layered pouch make for a very attractive pair of briefs.|
|Suitable for?||The Round Bum Shorties are perfect for everyday wear. They’re made from a thick-feeling 95 % cotton and 5 % Elastane – the classic fabric combination for most men’s underwear. Don’t wear it for sports activities. Perfect for guys who are looking for a clean look and who just want a solid pair of briefs. I really like the red color – It’s my no. 1 choice when it comes to solid colored underwear this season.|
|Fit and quality?||The fit was just fine. I wore a size M for a size 32/33 inch waist. No need to size up or down. After a few washes, the fabric felt a little stiff. Make sure to follow the washing instructions and consider adding fabric softener.|
|Is the price right?||The Aware Soho Round Bum Shorties are US $27 which is a fair price. The quality/price ratio of this brief is on par with most other quality briefs in the mid-range category.|
|Best thing about it?||I really like the overall cut – the combination of a low rise cut with not too narrow sides is a stunning and classic look. Combine this with a the well-designed pouch and you have one great-looking pair of briefs.|
|Overall grade||★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
The Aware Soho Round Bum Shorties are quite the looker – a well-produced pair of masculine briefs. The many color variants are a plus, too. Next time I wash them I’ll try following the instructions more carefully so that the fabric won’t feel too stiff.
