Men’s brief of the year is the second category out of four in which the best men’s underwear styles are chosen by you guys as well as an expert judge panel from the online store, HisRoom.com.
The Mens Undies Awards take place every year in June so we have to wait a few more months before HisRoom reveals this year’s best men’s underwear. It’s almost like the Oscars (which incidentally took place last night in LA) of men’s underwear!
In the briefs category the judges’ selection actually included two styles, the Mansilk Silk Satin Knit Mini Brief and the Pikante Shine Brief. To make things fair, I’ve only featured one of these in this post – the Mansilk Silk Satin Knit Mini Brief – simply because I like it better than the other.
The overall winner in the men’s brief category was the C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief, which is an excellent choice, guys. Well done!
See detailed video footage of both men’s briefs below.
Men’s brief Judges Selection of the year 2009: Mansilk Silk Satin Knit Mini Brief
In their evaluation of the Mansilk Silk Satin Knit Mini Brief, the Judges said, “These briefs are an uncommon blend of fabrics and construction with an eye for total comfort. The front portion is a silk and satin blend that showcases all of the best attributes of both without showcasing your attributes. The back is a silk knit that feels as weightless and soft as a cobweb, not to mention comfortable. Sexy and with lots of color choices, they’ve generated a lot of positive feedback.”
My own note on the Mansilk Silk Satin Knit Mini Brief is that they rate high on the boldness scale. Granted, they will feel comfortable and light as they are made from 100 % silk (although I personally prefer a nice cotton blend over silk any day), but the back design will also be almost see-through.
The colors available are plentiful, and that’s applaudable, but be careful guys, the shininess of the fabric may be a bit too much for many men. But definitely, if you want to turn heads in the men’s room or the bedroom and come off as daring and erotic, the Mansilk Silk Satin Knit Mini Brief is a fine and not too expensive choice at $19.
Men’s brief of the year 2009, overall winner: C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief
It comes as no big surprise that C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief took the Men’s Brief 2009 title. For years C-in2 has been among the best when it comes to profile-enhancing underwear for men. They have perfected a number of pouch designs that will either discretely or aggressively lift your precious assets up and forward for an impressive underwear profile. Few other underwear manufacturers (except maybe Aussiebum) are able to compete with C-in2 in this category.
Besides the enhancement functionality of this brief, it’s interesting how the fabric is primarily based on bamboo fibers. Obviously, this fabric development is based on elements of corporate social responsibility (by going for more environmentally sustainable fabric blends) but apparently this specific fabric blend is supposed to be quite comfortable. The C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief is made from 69% Rayon from Bamboo, 29% Cotton, 2% Spandex Interlock Jacquard.
On the victory by C-in2 in the public vote, the HisRoom judges noted, “Bamboo is a fantastic fabric option for underwear, and your votes have shown it’s definitely a favorite. It’s gained in popularity for its environmentally friendly nature, natural antibacterial properties, and the amazingly light and soft qualities of the fabric. The C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief briefs also benefit from the innovative construction method that C-in2 uses, including the “trophy case” crotch, which is designed to support and hold without compressing. All of these elements, combined with a low rise and high cut for a sexy look and feel, make these an easy choice for best brief of the year.”
The C-in2 Bamboo Mesh Slider Brief is reasonably priced at $19,50.
I wonder how many more new plant-based fabric blends we will see in the near future. Remember, it’s only been a few weeks since Aussiebum launched their new Banana underwear collection.
Anyway, both the winning styles can be purchased at HisRoom.
