Stonemen Colts Low-Rise Trunk: a Men’s Underwear Review

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? 🙂
