The Candid Lowrise Boxer Brief is a must have for any man's underwear drawer. A young company (April 2009), Candid creates a boxer brief and a lowrise brief in 3 different patterns (Houndstooth, Plaid, and Chromatic) in a myriad of colors. First off, I really like the color and pattern combos available through Candid – classic with a contemporary twist.
The cut of the boxer brief is very comfortable. I like that the legs of the boxer brief are short than a typical boxer. This helps greatly in avoiding the riding up of the legs during the day that a typical boxer brief has. The shorter legs also create a great look while providing full coverage. I found the contoured pouch to be very comfortable. The pouch held me well without being too snug or too loose. From the rear, there is a full seat which also adds to the comfort factor.
The Candid Boxer Brief is made from 95% cotton/ 5% spandex. This blend of fabric creates a soft cotton feel with the added flex of the touch of spandex. I really think this is what helped the brief feel so comfortable. 100% doesn't have any give and doesn't bounce back and too much spandex, is, well, too much!
All in all, I'd highly recommend the Candid Lowrise Boxer Brief to any man – it's on my favorite's list. I'll be writing a review soon on their brief – sneak peak, they're great too! All three of their pattens come in a pink combo – a great Valentine's Day idea!
