TOP FAVORITE ASPECT


The fabric selections are always a big highlight of Gregg Homme underwear and the Baller fabric is a fun and edgy option.

LEAST FAVORITE ASPECT


I'm still not digging the paper-like tags that Gregg Homme seems to be sticking to for the foreseeable future.
OVERALL GRADE
A-

MATERIAL

The Baller fabric is very light-weight with a sheer see-through effect that is suitable for the bold guy with nothing to hide. The finish of the fabric is matte with just a hint of shine barely visible to the eye. There is a pronounced ribbed texture that visually stands out but does not actually impact overall texture which feels smooth to the touch. The fabric stretches a medium amount along the horizontal axis of the stripes but along the vertical direction you'll find the material stretches a lot.

Simply because the fabric is so light-weight and thin you'll find it is breathable and quick drying.

FIT

Gregg Homme underwear usually runs true-to-size and I had no problems with the size-fit of my purchase made in my usual medium. The waistband felt secure but comfortable, the strap in back was also a good fit without being too tight or irritating.

The waistband and leg-bands are all reinforced with covered elastic which helps prevent unsightly gaps on the sides of the pouch.

The pouch is a noticeable feature of the baller line with an aggressive curve that helps to pull your package forward and emphasizes your assets front and center. The stretch of the material and relatively generous pouch lands this design in the "roomy" category for sizing. The engineering of the pouch includes a seam that runs the along the base to about halfway up to the front which provides the structured second-skin fit.

DESIGN & STYLE

This is an aggressive thong style with very minimal sides and a classic thong back. The pouch is single-layer fabric and give the thinness of the fabric results in a style that I would categorize as nearing the "extreme" category of underwear meant for showing off a more sexual intent by the wearer. The rather delicate nature of the fabric makes me feel like this is best reserved for special occasions. Erotic-wear is a given and I think loungewear and a special night out make the most sense as far as wearing scenarios for this thong.

There is a new rubber logo element included in the Baller line that I have not seen in Gregg Homme underwear before. It's a prominent design feature of this thong with the black path sewn flat to the center front along the waist. Thankfully this rubber element does not interfere with the fit of the brief and it provides an interesting design signature that lends a masculine feel to an otherwise minimal thong.

Gregg Homme is not known for selling "thrifty" underwear and this thong at nearly $30 falls into the "Luxury" price range in my opinion. Luckily the unique material, engineering and design elements help to justify the high-end price.

The available colors are mature and subtle with the purple being the only true color. I like the darker palette and the purple didn't feel overbearing in any way.

As usual the one downside to the design of this thong from Gregg Homme is the dreaded paper tag sewn in back which is a truly disposable affair. The paper is scratchy on the edges and mars the clean appearance of the strap in back -definitely something you'd want to remove in most cases.

CONSTRUCTION & CARE

Gregg Homme underwear is usually sewn with expert care and I couldn't find any noticeable flaws or issues with my thong. The stitching is clean and straight with no loose threads evident along the interior. The fabric that this thong is made from is noticeably delicate and I can see this thong disintegrating fairly fast if care is not taken in how it is both worn and washed. I recommend only hand washing despite the tag that says you can machine wash it. Delicate detergents and air drying are a given with this type of underwear. The "B+" grade is a result of the high-maintenance care that will be required for this garment but otherwise the construction is very good.
