Review by Jeff D.

A great pair of briefs from CURBWEAR. This is a model with a very classic brief cut, and the extra pouch at the front to give you the support you deserve. (I think it’s this they refer to as ‘enhancing’, but for me it’s a question of being more comfortable.) The look is masculine, sporty, with white trim at the legs to set off the pure black and a medium width blue/white/black waistband with the CURBWEAR/CURB logo. I tried them a couple of days ago, washed them, and then wore them again and I have to say I found them super comfortable. The material is a 93% cotton 7% elastane blend, which keeps in perfect shape. It lies close against the skin and yet lets it breathe. The waistband is comfortable and the white trim helps the briefs stay right where they should be. The couple of days I’ve worn them I’ve been driving, to the beach, gardening and working at my desk. They’re good in all situations – meaning you’re not really aware of them. Worn under Chinos or jeans they are fine, but they would also be terrific beneath slim-cut suit trousers. If you like briefs, and particularly if you like the support feature, give these a try. You will not be disappointed.


These briefs are from the Enhancing underwear collection by Curbwear. The retail price, at the time of the review, is 17 GBP (~20 euros, ~20.50 USD). They are available in four sizes (S-XL). Our reviewer (32″ waist) is wearing medium.

Many thanks to Curbwear for supplying the sample.
