SUMMARY

PRODUCT INFORMATION:


Suggested retail price: $19.00
Line Name: Vintage
Available Sizes: S->XL

I have been enjoying N2N Bodywear's latest season of underwear for 2013 with the new Vintage line quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite styles and designs of underwear. From the colors to the minimalist coverage to the fit that is top-notch all my favorite categories are firing in the vintage line and that includes the g-string style. When all is said and done this g-string earned a top-score of A+ in my book.

TOP FAVORITE ASPECT


For this g-string cut of the N2N Bodywear Vintage line my top favorite aspect to call out has to be the perfectly engineered fit that provides lift and really accentuates your package without any complex straps, pockets or rings.

LEAST FAVORITE ASPECT


The only aspect I would change about this g-string is the price since $19.00 does get up there when you talk about buying multiple pairs but I don't find it to be an unreasonable price considering the quality of the underwear.

MATERIAL

In my previous review of the Vintage Sport Brief I noted the 90% rayon and 10% spandex blend fabric was very comfortable with a soft surface texture. The stretch allowed by the fabric is just the right balance of allowing you to feel supported but also providing movement and flexibility.

It's not too often that an underwear fabric is purposefully distressed but in this case that's the point of the vintage line. The fabric has a slightly worn texture all over with the treatment being consistent across all aspects of the g-string including the pouch and waistband.

The fabric is fairly thin and light-weight but feels decently durable and suitable for every-day wear. Beyond stretch I wouldn't call out anything particularly performance oriented for the fabric.

FIT

Even though a g-string is on the surface a very simple cut of underwear it is actually a fairly complex cut to master and can be deceptively complex to getting just the right proportions correct. I was very pleased with the fit of this g-string across all criteria. Starting off with the waistband the covered elastic band is comfortable and stretches while maintaining a firm and secure fit on your waist so you don't need to worry about this g-string falling off you while going about your business throughout the day.

The next important fit element to call out is the design of the strap in back which is covered elastic that tapers from 2 1/8" at the center-back to a slim7/8" wide. The strap is comfortable and worked just right for my body in terms of length and fit to secure the pouch without feeling binding or too tight.

Last but not least the pouch on this g-string is great with a curve-enhancing design that is good for the average guy although it might feel just a tad snug for anyone on the above-average endowment range. Like most N2N Bodywear items this g-string ran mostly true-to-size in my tests although I'm noting it as just slightly snug overall.

This g-string feels like a serious entry in the Men's underwear market and not a novelty. The fit makes this work well enough that I can see it being a rare all-day g-string. More on my recommended uses in the Design & Style section.

DESIGN & STYLE

This is a very minimal-coverage g-string with a low-rise waist and just enough coverage on the pouch. As g-strings go I'd say this is a rare time where I feel like I can recommend it for all-day and office uses since the styling is sleek and minimal but still very functional given the superb fit.

The washed out de-saturated colors are eye-catching despite being more subdued and I found all three colors were flattering and hit the right masculine notes (even the pink works out nicely).

Pricing on this g-string is more on the premium side of the scale but that's to be expected with the N2N Bodywear label and at least with this g-string you're getting your money's worth for something that also happens to be made in the USA.

Given the single-layer fabric in the front pouch I'd say this g-string trends towards the more bold guy who doesn't mind revealing a fair amount.

CONSTRUCTION & CARE

N2N Bodywear items are typically well-made and I usually find their garments are expertly made. This g-string has very clean stitching and nice cuts on the edges of the fabric. The strap in back and the pouch in front were both uniform and symmetrical with strong double-stitching throughout.

The advantage of a purposefully worn design on the material is that you don't have to worry as much about how the color will adjust over time since it will only fit the vintage look even better over several wash and wear cycles. The material is durable and feels like it will hold up relatively well over time. The instructions say machine washing and drying are OK which is great to not have to worry about extra time spent cleaning this garment. Although I've marked regular detergent on the guide here I will note that delicate detergents can help the color and finish of your underwear last a bit longer over time if that's a concern for you.
