Underwear review by Ethan for Men and Underwear Blog:
real pleasure for me to review the new Nautical Briefs by Bluebuck. I was lucky
enough to be able to see all the new designs in Bluebuck’s Nautical collection when
I recently went to Mode City in Paris, and I was eager for a chance to try them
glance the briefs look beautiful. I love the navy blue / light blue stripe. It
is a classy look, but very fresh at the same time. I personally think it is Bluebuck’s
excellent waistband that lifts the look of the design to a higher level. The
brand found its inspiration in Brittany and I think it is that “French touch” to
their design that appealed to me. Unsurprisingly, the designer for this brand is
the briefs is pretty classic. By that I mean that it is a high to medium rise
style with wide sides. I find this cut very comfortable, especially if you are planning
to work out or do some other strenuous activity, as I did. I found the leg
openings a little tight (unusual for me) but not uncomfortable. The waistband
is a brilliant white with dark navy blue in the centre configured in a
herringbone style: another reference to Brittany maybe. The
waistband is 60% cotton and is very soft against the skin – the only downside being
that they did need to be adjusted slightly during wear.
goes, these briefs were very good! The pouch is double layered and its panels
are rotated so the stripes at the side continue on to meet the sides and centre
of the pouch, thus accentuating the front. The logo label is perfectly placed
in the middle and the washing instructions label carefully placed on the inside,
covering the central seam nicely and avoiding irritation. The stitching seems
nice and sturdy and so is the leg piping.
briefs look like they will last a long time. They didn’t lose their shape after
being washed and the colours stayed exactly the same, a sign that the fabric
was treated well before the manufacturing of the product. Overall, a great
design in a classic and very comfortable style.
