How Patriotic did I feel when I received my very own pair of underwear with my home flag printed all over them. Australians all let us rejoice for we have Grundies underwearâ€¦â€¦. Likewise I felt just as patriotic when I also received a pair of Blue Bum Talk Shorts, proudly made down under. Â Check out the story on Grundies for a bit of a background on this unique brand.
Grundies have a range of inventive designs in the Fit Short range, which should suit everyoneâ€™s tastes. Recently, I received two different graphic styles â€“ a pair of blue Bum Talk Shorts and a pair of Aussie Flag Fit Shorts. Shayne, another menswear reviewer has recently reviewed the Bum Talk Short range in black; have a look at his review.
The Front of the Fit short sees the start of the flag pattern which continues through to the back. I was at first a little skeptical of the â€œshortsâ€ style to these underwear as I have always been an briefs kind of guy; I was, however, Â pleasantly surprised at the amount of support that was offered in the Aussie Flat Fit Shorts. Once worn, the shorts develops a kind of memory in the material which makes for extra comfort in front.
The back hugs to the butt and, once again, I was surprised at how much support was offered in these â€œshortsâ€ style underwear. All of the support and hugging offered in the rear of the underwear made me feel and look like I had the best butt around.
The top has a one inch elasticized band with the Grundies Logo printed all the way around the underwear; I had a few friends comment when my shirt lifted up and they were able to see the waistband (commenting on how they loved the logo and the band Â – even asking where they could get a pair from). At the bottom of each leg is a white cotton band, which I found to be a little loose and seemed to ride up at the rear.
The Aussie Flag Fit Short is made of cotton with 10% elastane which makes for a very comfy fit. I did find that the fabric pilled and faded slightly after a couple of washes, however, after the first couple of washes this settled down.
I wore both medium and large sizes, both of which were equally comfy (I am a 36â€waist). Overall I found the Fit Short comfy, stylish and reasonably priced. To know that they are 100% Australian owned and made makes me feel proud to be an Australian.
Where to buy: Show or patriotism or for your love of Australia, visit Grundies own online store. Some fantastic bargains to be had for the month of October.
