I kind of feel like I want to rate these in a couple of ways: how they are in general, and how good they are for the price.
Overall, the style of these tends toward the kind of boxer briefs I like, with a little longer leg and a wide, well-defined pouch.
Speaking of fit, I kind of want to say that they’re about a half-size off from what I’d expect. I wear a medium usually, but medium ones I received felt like somewhere between a medium and a small, with legs that felt very snug and a pouch that was just enough not to be too constricting. The large ones I ordered, on the other hand, felt just a bit big, with loose-feeling legs, but were generally more comfortable overall. If you’re looking for more of a “relaxed-fit” with plenty of room, I’d suggest ordering a size up from your usual.
The fabric feel on these is a little hard to explain, as different pairs seem to have different levels of softness, both initially and after washing. To start off with, none of the pairs felt as soft initially as others I’ve tried That being said, after several washes, most of the pairs have softened up quite nicely, and the fabric feels very comfortable.
The general fit and feel is good, the legs don’t tend to ride up much, there aren’t any real constriction or pain points at least in the large version (medium version was a little constricting in the pouch, crotch and legs, especially when initially putting them on). They tend to stay reasonably comfortable and supportive throughout the day.
Overall, they’re pretty decent, and their fabric becomes very comfortable once they’re worn in. That alone probably puts them above some other brands. However… in the six-pack, they’re like four bucks apiece, not far off from the usual bulk-pack brands. And compared to the quality you tend to get in those, these are an order of magnitude better. In fact, for the price, I am hard-pressed to think of something that can provide an equivalent fit and quality. Think of it like this: for the price of one single pair of underwear from some name brands, you can get an entire six-pack that only sacrifice a little in comfort once you wear them in. While they’re not my favorite underwear ever, it’s hard to argue with their combination of solid quality and very reasonable price.
