The Look:  We’re really impressed with this collection.  It’s always been a favorite of ours, but the updates are really quite stellar.  The updated collection has bright colors with strong, smart accents and a sophisticated look.

The Fit:  They fit like a pair of underwear should and the newly added elastic stripe on the leg (different pairs get different tensions) makes the underwear feel more secure without being overbearing.  The bulge is defined nicely (due in part to the elastic in the legs.)  The newly added heat transfer tag is 100% unnoticeable and comfortable.

The Design:  Sexy and Modern.  They’ve blocked the logo out of the blue waistband with brown accents (so it’s just the silver outline of C-IN2 overlaying the blue and brown.)  The elastic around the leg is brown, silver and blue as well (in that order, moving down the leg.) 

The Construction:  The no fly, three piece pouch construction is simple, sensible and creates a nice profile.  The pouch is connected in the middle, and underneath to a gusset.  The mesh-like fabric mostly comprised of rayon from bamboo, is extremely breathable.  Due to the comforting elastic band and the soft, mono-texture waistband, we found ourselves feeling secure and comfortable all day (if you enjoy feeling like you’re wearing nothing at all, we recommend the active sport brief.)  For the tops, the fabric makes for excellent work-out gear.

The Underwear Expert Opinion:  Great pair of underwear.  Super light-weight fabric is breathable and doesn’t stretch. Great design.  Bright and modern colors to choose from, and sexy accents.  Highly recommended for the gym or every day.

    Question about bamboo….I have a few pairs. How do you feel it breathes? I have some CK bamboo briefs but sometimes they feel more like poly.

      These are different than the original Bamboo that C-IN2 came out with a few years ago. With 29% Cotton, they breathe well and fit nicely.
