I wrote my first review of Stonemen about 2 years ago and loved them then. Today, I’m excited to write the review on Stonemen’s latest – the Colt Low-Rise Trunk!
Fit: The Colt Low-Rise Trunk fit me very well. Last time I tried Stonemen, I wore a large. With the change in fabrics (see below) I found the medium to be absolutely the right size (their size charts are accurate). As a 34″, I often fall between a medium and large. The over fit of the low-rise trunk was wonderful. As a trunk style, you have full seat coverage for all day comfort. The trunk has a traditional flat front (no ergonomic pouch). Because of the fabric used and the cut of the trunk, my package was very comfortable and well supported. As a low-rise, these sit at your hips for a comfortable fit and allows you to wear under jeans and lower-cut pants. All around, I found these very comfortable.
Style: One of the things I love most about Stonemen is their use of digitally printed illustrations. The colors are always strong and the illustrations unique. The Colt line (available as a trunk or boxer-brief) is their Western illustration with graphic Western Colt pistols at your side, along with other Western insignia. As a low-rise, along with the playful Colt illustration, I found these to be a fun and playfully sexy pair of underwear. Sitting lower on your hips and short, trunk legs with your packaging hanging at the same level creates a great look – enough to have someone grabbing for your pistol.
Fabric: The fabric used this time around is a lighter weight fabric than used in the past. Made from a quality blend of cotton and 5% Spandex, the new material is perfect for any season, forms to your body well, and provides a wonderful soft cottony feel. I’m really, really quite pleased with the modifications made to their cotton-blend material!
Quality: Again, I found these to be very well made. The stitching and piping are all well done. In addition, I washed these quite a few times to see how the color would hold up (sometimes a downside of digital illustrations on fabric). I’m please to report that these held up very well. I can also report that the pair I received nearly 2 years ago have also held their color very well. Kudos to Stonemen.
Overall, I love these new Stonemen Low-Rise Trunks and the fun, Western Colt collection. Stonemen are a premium brand and bring a price to match ($45 AUD / $47 USD). I can say, though, that you most definetly get what you pay for in both quality and uniqueness. Anyone can buy a pair of red, black or white underwear, but how many have Colt pistols strapped to their sides?
