BRIEF WORN: Small blue on white jock
FUNCTION: Everyday, Going Out, Dress-Up, For Play
FABRIC: 95% Cotton, 5% Lycra
LAUNDERING: Machine wash cool or hand wash, hang dry
The Look: Sporty, Playful, Refined.
The Design: At first glance, it’s not entirely apparent how this jock will fit, or look on for that matter, but after shimmying in it becomes all too obvious — this jock is something to behold. It’s subtle design and mix of striped denim, white elastic and white mesh are refreshing, to say the least, and futuristic in a way. A light gray “MCKILLOP” adorns the middle of the waistband, and isn’t distracting at all.
The Fit: The fit is tight but good and this is because the sizes run smaller than most (a small is for waist sizes 28-30 as opposed to 29-30 or 30-31, etc.), but if you like a snug fit, stay with your normal sizing because it wasn’t at all distracting. The combination of the cut of the cup and the fabric make for an exceptionally fitted pouch. It hugs your package on all sides (but doesn’t constrain) and tucks right back behind the boys. Most jocks have a heap of extra fabric on the under carriage, but there’s nothing extra here and it provides a refined, if not slightly larger, silhouette. The waistband elastic is soft to the skin, as are the straps that cup the glutes. The tag isn’t noticeable either. All in all, a perfect fit.
The Construction: Mckillop U/W pays special attention to every pair of underwear they produce, and it shows. The seams and cuts of the fabric could be slightly more clean, but we emphasize “slightly” and acknowledge that what this jock may lack in machine-like craftsmanship, it more than makes up for in emphasis on fit and overall design.
