As I wrote when I first reviewed a pair of Olaf Benz Brazilbriefs, I’m in heaven! Last July, I reviewed a pair of Olaf Benz – the Passion Lab Brazil Brief (0979). Today’s review is on the Olaf Benz RED 1067 Brazilbrief – the 1067 is the new material that they came out with this past fall. After trying literally hundreds of brands, Olaf Benz continues to be in my top 5 favorites – if not top 3!
Let’s start off with the overall fit and comfort of the Brazilbrief and end with the wonderful new material (1067). The cut of the brief is the same as I found in the 0979 Brazilbrief. The Brazilbrief cut provides you a minimal rear cut and higher sides. While the coverage for the butt is minimal in comparison to their other cuts, it was adequate for me – and I’m rather picky on having a comfortable seat. Perhaps the main reason I found the minimal rear coverage comfortable is the lightweight material being used – more on that later.
The pouch on the Brazilbrief is also a minimal coverage. While again minimal, there is sufficient coverage to be comfortable and supportive, given the stretchy nature of the material. With a smaller coverage in the pouch, your onlookers also get a sneak peak at the goods.
This new line is really a super fabric that stands out due to its softness and high elasticity. It is a fine Jacquard with a slightly raised, wavy look. Take a look at the close up picture to get a better idea of what the material looks like. Made from a blend of 86% polyamid and 14% elastane, I found the material not only lightweight, but had a wonderful stretchiness to it to provide a wonderful look. And, being lightweight, there is almost a sheerness to the material. The new RED 1067 comes in the Olaf Benz White, a deep Olaf Benz Royal Blue and the new Olaf Benz Mint, which runs through the whole collection.

Olaf Benz continues to roll out some sexy new items this winter. As you know from my previous review of the Olaf Benz, I’m a huge fan! A bit ago, I wrote on the NEW Fall Line from Olaf-Benz that came out in September and then in October. This next roll out of the NEW Winter Line should be available in November or December, but you can PRE-ORDER NOW. Take a look and tell me what you think of the new Olaf Benz items.
Olaf Benz RED 0979 – Available to pre-order now, in-stock November
This stylish line continues its position as a wonderfully light, micro-fiber underwear. The ultra-light fabric has a ribbed look which shimmers nicely in the light. There is a choice of White, Mars Red and Black. Four men’s underwear styles, from scanty to classic, can be combined with two shirts different shirt styles for a complete look.
Olaf Benz RED 1069 – Available to pre-order now, in-stock November
This is a small, masculine underwear series with a micro-jersey base in Lava Grey which creates a really neat look. Both brief shapes – Mini pants and Sport briefs – are also available in Jacquard in the same colors. Fine cream-colored pin stripes draw a fine pattern of squares. Combined with a monochrome top they look simply great.
Olaf Benz RED 1062 – Available to pre-order now, in-stock December
A new look in men’s underwear. The Olaf Benz designer forecasts a noticeable change in cuts for men’s underwear. Season after season the briefs have become shorter and show a maximum amount of skin between the navel and waistband. Now the waistbands are going up again. Olaf Benz believes in wide elastic bands and waist high boxers and briefs. This line brings this change back. These new boxers and briefs show a completely new silhouette. At the first sight this you may be shocked, just as the change from skinny jeans to flares did. Check ‘em out. What do you think? Will this take off?
Well guys, I just received word that Olaf Benz is preparing to roll out its NEW Fall Line. As you know from my previous review of the Olaf Benz bikini, I’m a huge fan! The NEW Fall Line from Olaf-Benz is as sexy as ever and should get the juices flowing. Checkout these first items which become available in September/October. I’ll post some more on the items coming out in October, November and December. This should certainly be a fall to remember! Take a look and tell me what you think of the new Olaf Benz items.
Olaf Benz RED 1065 – Available to pre-order now, in-stock September / October
“Oops!” is what many will say when they touch this slick fabric for the first time because the feel of this Italian innovation is simply sensational. It is wafer-thin, smooth as dolphin skin, cool, rustling like paper and on top of all very elastic. Due to the fabric’s coated surface the colors reach a brilliance no one’s ever seen before. Minipants and Sportbriefs are the cool basics which make the perfect outfit together with a Tanktop. The Tanga is super sexy and shows off the glossy fabric.
Olaf Benz RED 1070 – Available to pre-order now, in-stock September / October
Whoever likes to combine monochromes with stripes will thoroughly enjoy this line. You have the choice of Black or White as the basic color and simply combine with fine lines on a white background. There are four Briefs, a masculine Carréshirt and a casual V-Shirt available in all three color variations. The semi-transparent fabric is made of cool micro-fiber which follows every movement due to its high elasticity. The center front of the briefs is doubled for certain discretion.
Olaf Benz RED 1067 – Available to pre-order now, in-stock September / October
Looking for a modern, attractive line of men’s underwear? This line offers sporty cuts, cool colors and a super fabric that stands out due to its soft grip and high elasticity. It is a fine Jacquard with a slightly raised, wavy look. Casual, cool cuts, which – no matter whether briefs or shirt – fit perfectly and are the right choice for every day. The Flight briefs are new; they combine the look of Pants with the classic comfort of the Brief. In addition to dazzling white, a radiant Royal Blue has been added and the new Mint runs through the whole collection like a basic tone.
My latest review is on the Boqari Seamless men’s underwear. I tried these awesome men’s mini trunks in 3 different styles: Square Jacquard in Jet Black, Jamaica Mesh in Modena Red, and Argyle in Spank me Purple.
The Boquari Seamless men’s underwear are unisex and come in two sizes S-M and L-XL, I’m a 31 waist so I wore the S-M.
Since the Boqari are seamless, I didn’t want to critique them in a break-down of front back and so on. Instead I decided I would just describe how they fit and felt to provide an overall experience with them as a complete garment.
I was a little skeptical of how they would fit being both unisex and coming in only two sizes, as my experience in the past with articles sized this way has been a little less than comfortable. I was cheerfully surprised as I put them on for the first time. They stretched perfectly to fit with a soft and light hug. The ultra-light-soft nylon material hugged very gently and so softly like nothing I’ve felt before. It was difficult to stop touching them in amazement!
I decided I would wear them to “test” them out the following day. Since they were trunk-style there were no lines to worry about, and being seamless (which is amazing in and of itself) there were no irritations or scratching/rubbing in any strange places. They felt great on all day. The material breathed enough to keep me cool and they didn’t ride up or feel clingy. They just hugged me softly all day just as they did the moment I put them on. Definitely an A+.
Oh, did I mention they are also fashioned in a very sexy men’s trunk-style cut? That’s right, they not only feel sexy and smooth, they also have the look too. Out of the 3 styles I tried, I felt the Jamaican Mesh was the sexiest pair; they have a large mesh that is quite revealing covering the sides and rear. The Argyle has, you guessed it, a two toned argyle pattern all over that gives them a nice look too. The Square Jacquard really pops with its raised diamond shape knitting. I will also mention that my partner liked the look of all 3 of them, but also thought the Jamaican Mesh were the sexiest.
They are all hand wash with mild soap and hang to dry. After washing I didn’t have a place to hang them, so laid them flat to dry and that worked just fine. They held their shape and softness just as I had expected them to. In fact, they held up to the wash so well, I’m thinking about trying them at the pool.
These were a lot of fun to wear and I really enjoyed being able to have the opportunity to take them on a test drive. I would highly recommend trying a pair or two; get a pair for your partner as well since they are unisex. You can find out more about Boqari and my direct from them on their website.
UPDATE: Palace Trunks now carries the BOQARI line – check ‘em out!
