Tribe’s Long Boxer is a longer version than their short boxer but for guys in the states, this shouldn’t be confused with a midcut. The Long Boxer is more in line with the traditional length of a boxer brief and Tribe’s Short Boxer is more like a hipster brief. I like both of Tribe’s long and short styles. For me, the big difference is on appearance as I’ve found both to be fairly equal in comfort. For the Skull pattern I liked the look of the Long Boxer. The “skull” is a blank on white abstract print that resemble skulls when you look at them.
The Long Boxer was comfortable and fit well. I found the legs to stay in place and not ride up. There isn’t a defined pouch, but the soft jersey/elastane blend had enough give that you were supported and well defined. I enjoyed how the the Long Boxer sat on my waist and always like a full seat (obvious with a boxer). The jersey/elastane fabric is a soft, stretch material that was comfortable to wear and feel. The pouch is lined in a wonderful 100% modal fabric for extra comfort.
As you can tell from my other reviews of Tribe, I really like this brand. Not only do they make really comfortable underwear, they do so with fun colors and designs. Tribe continues to be one of my favorite brands and can easily recommend the Long Boxer in the Skull pattern. Check out Tribe’s site for more information and additional patterns.
