Firstly i need to point out that i'm not gay, i'm very much straight and in a relationship with a woman yet sadly we still live in a world where what underwear we wear depicts what your sexual orientation is and i honestly feel saddened by that as anyone should be able to wear any type of underwear they wish without anyone being labelled as such. I myself love thongs and believe that if you get the sizing right and pick one with a pouch to match you will be hard pressed to find anything better. Some time ago i purchased the Andrew Christian Nanofit Thong and was totally sold on them. They were and still are one of the best mens thongs i have come across, sadly it seems A.C have stopped selling them (i can only hope they have new designs on the way).
This particular offering encompasses both a thong and jockstrap design. Some may argue depending on whether you are a thong or jockstrap fan, why do you need to have both as either is pretty good on their own and each will appeal to different people? Well, believe it or not jockstraps and thongs offer the same level of support and comfort in my opinion having tried many different ones, so it comes down to the positioning of the strap(s), nothing more!!
I would argue now having tried these on for a couple of days over the past 2 weeks that the combination works extremely well. You get EXTREME levels of support yet with the very soft material the comfort on offer is uncanny. Not once throughout the days that i wore this did i ever have to adjust them, they never moved an inch and didn't ride up. Speaking of the pouch it has the classic Andrew Christian ergonomic design yet at the same time it slightly elevates your package to a very natural level which helps to keep everything cool and free from getting trapped which seems very similar to that of many Ergowear Products. While i have yet to try these while working out or going for a run i'm guessing they will be perfect for the job.
The waistband is very similar to the Nanofit thong i have and is a silver, elasticated material and features the A.C branding around it. The aqua colour combination looks great and is different from the usual blacks and whites yet at the same time it looks very masculine and the material is soft against the skin. I've found these rest perfectly just above the hips but below the waist so perfect for wearing under all manner of clothing. Now on to something my girlfriend mentioned, they do indeed make your rear look not so much bigger but certainly better defined especially under jeans (just something to keep in mind)
Pros: I cannot stress how supportive these are * Very soft and comfy * Jock/Thong combination works well with the thong "cut" being spot on * Gone are those pocket adjustments * Ergonomic and enhancing Pouch * Wash well in the machine * Sexy look and feel
Cons: if you don't mind wearing thongs and get to the point where you try them on, then there are none apart from the price
VERDICT: These really are great and i finally understand why they have used both a thong and jockstrap design. The pouch is as good as your likely to find and with them being cotton everyone should get comfy. Ideal as everyday underwear or even something to wear on those special occasions in town. If you can justify the price i whole heartedly recommend these to you and my tip if you want to push the boat out is to get a pair of tight jeans and the combination really does work well, take it from my girlfriend and diversify your underwear draw and you'll be glad you did!
An absolute peach, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to any and all guys who crave style, support and comfort rolled into one!
UPDATE 07th May 2014: Still loving these and very much recommend them, very much retaining their size/shape and colour in the wash. Also started to wear these during my workout session and must say they really do impress with exceptional support, the only thing that could make them better from a workout point of view is if they did a microfibre version. If they did then i'd be laughing all the way to the gym
Wasn't sure how this would feel on as I've never worn a thong before. It's surprisingly comfortable. It actually feels a better fit than normal briefs. It also shapes the buttocks as well. Stylish too.
