Tribe’s Brief is their standard brief cut (in comparison to their slim side and trunk brief). The standard brief was designed to cut wider on the hip and be more of hipster style. For me, I found the standard brief to be very comfortable and attractive. This is definitely a sexy brief than most “standard briefs” and looks more like a bikini brief. Between the standard brief and slim side, there isn’t too much difference. The fabric I tried is the Aqua Jungle pattern. Aqua Jungle is a white and aqua print with jungle-style leaves on them and made from a soft viscose/elastane blend with a 100% modal lined pouch.
The standard brief fit me quite well. I found the pouch to be comfortable and supportive throughout the day. The brief sits comfortably at your hips and the high leg openings provide comfort and ease of movement. For rear end coverage, Tribe’s standard brief is full coverage. I didn’t have any problems with wedgies or discomfort. Being a full seat, I was comfortable all day.
I really like this brand – their styles and fit are fantastic. Not only do they make really comfortable men’s underwear, they do so with fun colors and designs. Tribe continues to be one of my favorite brands and can easily recommend their standard brief. Check out Tribe’s site for more information and additional patterns or cuts.
