SUMMARY

PRODUCT INFORMATION:


Suggested retail price: $22.00
Line Name: Vintage
Available Sizes: S->XL

There was a time when the majority of N2N Bodywear's underwear ranges utilized covered elastic waistbands that complimented very low profile and minimalistic designs. Roughly 2 years ago, N2N Bodywear migrated away from the covered elastic waistband and started using exposed logo waistbands for all of their underwear -save for the mesh and brushed tactel lines. Given the lack of many options for premium underwear with low profile covered elastic waistbands I am personally happy to see N2N expand their offering with the new Vintage line which takes cues from many of their past looks while introducing updated materials, colors and a couple of new cuts as well.

TOP FAVORITE ASPECT


It's hard to pick just one favorite aspect for this brief. As noted earlier I like the low-profile covered waistband style but I’m also partial to the overall snug but comfortable fit with minimal but still reasonable coverage that makes for a fun and enjoyable underwear experience.

LEAST FAVORITE ASPECT


At $22 per pair, the pricing might feel a couple collars higher than ideal for such a small underwear item but it's still within a reasonable pricing range for a premium brand of men's underwear.

MATERIAL

The Vintage line is made from a 90% rayon 10% spandex blend which might look and feel very similar to the discontinued Mojave line it's actually a different blend entirely (the latter having polyester in the mix). This is a medium-weight, soft and stretchable fabric which works very well for men's underwear.

The fabric feels very durable and I believe will hold up well to repeated washing and wearing. Living up to the “vintage” namesake, the material has a worn finish with visible pilling all over.

FIT

N2N Bodywear typically runs true-to-size and these sport briefs fit nicely in my usual medium. I will say that the overall fit is slightly on the snug side so keep that in mind when trying to decide what size to order for yourself.

The Vintage pouch is more snug than the typical N2N Bodywear design but it still includes a supportive and shaping center-seam design that is flattering. The pouch is single-layer fabric and as such you can expect to show some visible genital outlines.

I found the covered elastic waistband and leg-bands felt comfortable and did not cause any irritation or friction while wearing. The back is less than full coverage and will show some of your lower backside depending on your personal build. Combine the slightly minimized coverage in back and an extremely low-rise style in front and you'll need to be prepared for a highly revealing look when wearing these sport briefs.

DESIGN & STYLE

I'm happy to see a sport brief style being made available since they tend to be less common compared to Jockstraps and Jockbriefs as of late. The intent of this design is to be sleek and minimal so there are few specific design flourishes other than the nicely made tag in back which is a soft fabric with printed information.

I found the color range the Vintage line is offered in to be eye-catching with saturated but not overly bright tones that feel masculine and convey a strong sense of energy (even in the pink color which is not easy to pull off).

I like that you can match the underwear with a t shirt or even a hoodie making for a nice lounge-at-home set.

CONSTRUCTION & CARE

I've rarely had issues with N2N Bodywear construction and their items (made in the USA by the way) almost always hold up well. The Vintage line exhibits a good attention to quality control with good seams that are straight and clean edges on the fabric cuts.

These are machine washable briefs and I don't foresee issues putting them in with most other types of clothes in the same wash. No special detergents are required and of course no bleach since these are deyed fabrics.

The slight advantage of the Vintage line is that the very nature of the intentionally distressed and faded color means the finish and look of the fabric will pretty much stay the same over time as you wash the garment and some of the color naturally fades over time.
