Pros: Comfort, Fabric Performance

Cons: Limited color options, Need to be worn under something in public

During the last few years, I’ve really gotten into leggings. My collection of them may not be growing as quickly as my underwear collection, but slowly I continue to add more to my collection. Therefore, I was obviously excited to have the opportunity to try the Total Comfort Lounge Leggings from Box Menswear.

I appreciate the straightforward name of these leggings, and found they really live up to their name. They are totally comfortable and they are prefect for lounging around.

The bamboo fabric of these leggings make them not only comfortable, but functional as well. The fabric absorbs moisture so it will wick away the sweat in the summer and help keep your body warm in the winter. The perfect fabric for year-round use. These certainly could be used for workouts or running, due to the fabric and the cuffs around the ankles to keep them in place. However, the white fabric is pretty translucent and will show anything you have on (or don’t have on) underneath. Because of that, you will likely need to throw some shorts over these if you plan to wear them out of the house. I’m not a fan of the shorts over leggings look, so I’ll stick to lounging around the house in these.

For sizing, I usually order Medium when it comes to leggings, and found that was the best choice for these. Just as a frame of reference, I found I should size down one size in Box Menswear underwear, but I think when it comes to their leggings, you’re best to stick to your usual sizing.

I am really glad that I had the opportunity to give these leggings a try. I can tell that I will get a lot of use out of them. The comfort level is fantastic an I really love the bamboo fabric. I hope Box Menswear expands some of the color options. I think some darker colors might make these more functional outside of the home, without having to throw shorts over.

Pros: Construction, Sizing

Cons: Style, Pouch, Price

Box Menswear is a brand I’ve seen a lot of on social media, yet I had not yet tried. I was excited when I received a couple of jocks to try. While I would recommend both, this particular one comes with a more limited recommendation. Read on to understand what I mean.

Let’s start with the good…this jock held up well for a workout. It checked off the boxes for me for being comfortable and keeping everything in place. That said, where it lacks for me is in design. It’s a very simple and basic design, which isn’t my taste. There just isn’t anything, desig- wise, in this jock that really stands out among a sea of jock brands. That makes me feel the price point is a little high for such a basic design.

As far as construction goes, this is a solidly constructed jock, sure to stand up to lots of workouts over time. The straps around the butt were pretty comfortable (which isn’t always the case with jocks). The area where I encountered some issues was with the pouch. While everything fit, I felt as if my equipment was being flattened. This would be a jock I’d wear to the gym, but not one I’d wear in the bedroom if I were trying to make an impression with my package. That said, the cotton fabric of the pouch itself is comfortable, so it really depends on what activities you plan for this jock.

Now let’s take a minute to discuss sizing. I always recommend that guys pay attention to size charts as they can vary from brand to brand. This is certainly the case for Box Menswear. I usually wear a size medium and likely would have ordered that had I not paid attention to the size chart. Turns out that I actually needed to order down a size too small! So if you’re someone who feels a little self-conscious about your weight, Box Menswear might make you feel just a little bit better!

Overall, this jock is okay. It doesn’t really excite me, but it’s solid for a workout. I think this jock would appeal more to a guy looking for function over fashion. It holds up well for a workout and is comfortable, so give it a try if the style catches your eye.

Pros: Sex Appeal, Comfort, Sizing

Cons: Only one color option, Price

Having seen, but never tried Box Menswear, I was excited to have the opportunity to try a couple of their jockstraps. Out of the two I tried, this was, by far my favorite.

I found this jock to be perfect for lounging around the house and for fun in the bedroom. I think it could also be a sexy fun secret under your work clothes in an office setting (if those settings still exist). I found this jock to be the perfect combination of sexy and comfort, which isn’t the easiest to achieve!

Let’s dive into the sexy and comfort aspect by talking about comfort first. The moment I opened the package and felt the fabric in my hands, I knew I was in for a treat. The Polyamide/Spandex mix feels smooth and sexy against your skin and the design of the pouch allows everything to hang naturally and comfortably. The sex appeal is brought out nicely by the thin, transparent fabric and is elevated even more by the mesh side panels.

As far as sizing, these really fit like a glove….as long as you get the right size. I found that I had to go down one size based on their size chart. This was an added boost to the self-esteem, especially after packing on some quarantine pounds

Overall, there are few things I didn’t like about this jock. The price point is a bit high, but the fabric, quality construction, and sex appeal are all there and justify the price point in my opinion. If you’ve been on the hunt for a jockstrap that is both comfortable and sexy, this is one you should add to your collection.

Box Menswear furnished the white brief for review. All opinions of the review are my own and were not influenced by Box Menswear

Rating: 9/10 (Average of the ratings below)

  • Daily Fit: 9/10
  • Sizing: 9/10
  • Construction: 9/10
  • Styling: 9/10
  • Daily Performance: 9/10


  • Made from super soft material 
  • Sizing seemed spot on 
  • Very comfy even after 12 hours


  • Some guys may not like its very basic in design (not flashy or bold colors/prints)
  • Some guys may not consider it because they think it’s boring. 

UNB Tim recommendation: The Box Menswear white briefs may look classic and boring, but they are anything but boring. This pair is made out of the most fantastic fabric and fits like a glove. I wished I had more than one pair because I wanted to wear it the next day. If you love terrific feeling fabric and a snug fit, the Box Briefs are for you. 

Like many of you out there, I have seen Box Menswear on social media and internet. Their photography has always been spot on and made their underwear look pretty awesome. But, I always wondered about the brand, was it too good to be true with all the fantastic photography? They reached out to us a few weeks back and sent us some of their undies to try out. Erik and Andy will be reviewing jocks, but I got the brief and the trunk. The first review out of the gate is the brief.  

The first thing I noticed when putting these on was the fabric. It was super soft, and felt great. After I slid them on, the material felt fantastic and had a bit of a stretch built-in. The next thing I noticed was the pouch fit great. When you look at pics, you don’t see a build in pouch. This had me wondering about the support. However, the pouch offered ample support throughout the day. Unlike many reviews, in the age of COVID-19, I didn’t put them through the paces. The day consisted of watching Netflix, working on UNB and the UNB Store. Hardly an active day, but I got a look into how they would perform if more active. 

I was seriously impressed with the construction and fabric of this pair. The way it felt and stretched held everything in place, just like I like in a pair of great underwear. Sometimes when a brand really pushes pics, they don’t always live up to the hype. Not, Box, they lived up to the hype and exceeded my expectations. The classic design may have a few of you guys overlook them, but don’t let the “classic look” fool you. These undies are made for today with a fantastic fit. 

Being a bigger guy, I always worry that pairs won’t fit me. I received an XL, and to my relief, they fit perfectly. I’m a 42 waist, and it was never tight or binding. It felt incredible for the day. It was a pair that I didn’t want to take off at the end of the day. I don’t think you will have issues with sizing with Box, double-check the size chart before you buy.

  • PAIR: Box Menswear Brief
  • COLOR: White
  • FABRIC: 92% cotton, 8% elastane (exclusive of trims)
  • SIZES: X-Small – XX-Large
  • PRICE: $21.00


  • Fit:9/10
  • Styling:10/10
  • Construction:10/10
  • Sizing:8/10
  • Performance:9/10

Pro: Smooth, water wicking material. Bountiful pouch with room in the front. Short legs openings which sit well and do not move while wearing.
A gray checkered flag stripe on the rear that adds depth to the brief and unexpected flair.

Con: Sizing was slightly too big for my waist. Also, while there is an excess amount of space within the pouch, if you don’t fill it all the material
somewhat flops around. I would prefer it to be slightly tighter and form closer to my frame.

Recommendation: I purchased this pair through Box Menswear’s official page during a flash sale in recognition of St. Patrick’s day. Traditionally listed for sale at around $33, I purchased this pair for $20. It was during this purchase that I also took advantage of buying a special “Irish Colors” briefs 3 pack for $20 (This review is upcoming).

Over the past 18 months Box has created and grown an independent fan following, primarily fueled through social media. Their Instagram page is how I was introduced to this company. What I have found most unique and refreshing about this company is how they leverage independent and professional models to represent their products on their personal IG pages and then sharing their work on their site for product reference and promotional purposes. Seeing Box worn and represented on these models
creates an aspirational emotion within buyers and certainly had an effect on my purchase and desire to try the brand.

Now back to the swim brief, since it is not yet summer in the Northeast US (it really needs to happen already!) I wore this pair a few times around the house and also went edgy, wearing this to the local Y to swim laps. Upon first putting it on I observed a rope drawstring which can be manually adjusted to the given waist of the wearer. While I usually prefer this design, I found that the size Small I ordered was slightly too wide for my waistline. It did fit but not as snug as desired. There is an internal lining within the pouch that sits smoothly upon my skin. Also to my surprise, I found a grey checkered pattern in an almost pinstripe on the backside of the brief. I loved this addition! As mentioned in the “pros” section it adds depth and rhythm to the brief instead of merely a plain black swim brief.

The brief is low rise, sitting right above my butt and is designed to make your lower abdominals pop (It is an excellent way to keep giving me ongoing gym motivation.) There is minimal leg coverage, with probably a 1″ rise on the brief. Upon putting the brief onto my body, I overall enjoyed it. It was slightly too wide in the waist, but the material (88% polyamide, 12% spandex) was exceptionally smooth and wicked water from my body with ease. The leg opening did not chafe against my skin while wearing. The stitching was done with quality, and there have been no defects that have emerged after wearing.

With summer almost here, I am very excited to be able to wear this pair more. All in all, if you need a solid swim brief with masculine flair, I would recommend this pair. Wait for sales though as these happen often. To stay in the loop on Box’s products and deals, follow their Instagram page @boxmenswear.
