I have been a fan of Gregg Homme for some time now. I enjoy their fresh, provocative styles. Affirmation of a good brand is often made with other brands mimicking successful styles – as has been the case with several of Gregg Homme's latest styles. I have been fortunate to get my hands on a couple different pairs of Gregg Homme's most recent collections, including Torrid. Gregg Homme's Torrid Trunk is the focus of today's review. I will have reviews on some of the other new collections coming out soon.
On to the review…. the Torrid Trunk lives up to its name quite admirably. When I think of Torrid, I think of hot, sexy and oh so provocative; this is the Torrid Trunk! The trunk cut is a bit of a stretch. While it is a trunk, its far from the standard coverage a traditional trunk provides – in this case, that's a good thing! The Torrid Trunk is a super lowrise trunk made from an 80% Polyamide / 20% Spandex blend; the result is a super lightweight fabric that stretches and molds to everything it can wrap around, and I mean everything!
Overall fit: The material is super thin which provides a translucent look to it with a subtle shimmer to it; you can see a bit to pique your interest, but not too much that it keeps the mind wondering. The material adds quite a bit to the overall fit and comfort. With its lightweight and stretchy nature, the material makes the trunk very comfortable despite being so lowrise. The super lowrise cut is one of the lowest I've experienced; let's just say you'll want to keep things trimmed if you know what I mean! What I really liked was that while it is super lowrise, the trunk cut allowed for full rear coverage and the stretchiness of the material allowed the trunk to stay in place (sometimes super lowrise tend to want to fall down too much).
The pouch is definitely designed to show the goods. Well defined and roomy make the pouch not only quite sexy, but comfortable as well. When I review products, I like to wear them in various situations to see how they do overall. I had the opportunity to wear these for an evening out, but also for a normal work day under my business suite. In both cases, I was very comfortable.
Overall, an awesome, sexy trunk. Gregg Homme has a winner again with the new Torrid Trunk. If you're not a trunk guy, there is also a Thong and Brief style available in the Torrid range in the same shades of black, white, taupe, red and sky blue. I highly recommend the
Sizing was accurate with the following size chart. I am a 34″ waist and tried these in size Medium and was very comfortable.
