The Look: The C-IN2 Hand Me Down collection is one of our favorite, and the updates to the colors are great. C-IN2 really nailed the no-show brief fit, so much so that we’re left wondering is why we ever wore non low-rise briefs at all. The profile is stellar, as is the entire look of the brief. It makes every part of you look its best.
The Fit: They perfectly sculpt to the body. The rise over the thigh is one of the best we’ve seen for an everyday pair of underwear. At it’s shortest, the rise sits about an inch below the waistband and falls back to a full back cover. The elastic around the waistbands is not constricting at all.
The Design: Though the inspiration behind the design is vintage collegiate, the design of this collection is sleek and refined. The colors, accents, and waistband are clean and eye-catching. The waistband is fairly simple; a blue C-IN2 is raised slightly in bold letters over the rest of the waistband.
The Construction: Our favorite part of this collection is the fabric. The cotton-poly blend really does remind us of comfortable faded vintage clothing, but is still sturdy and sleek. The no-fly double piece pouch supports well and offers a clean and, because of where the leg bands sit on the legs, somewhat accentuated profile. The heat transfer tag is flush with the waistband, which is soft and unnoticeable. The brief is extremely well made, and leaves us wanting to keep them on all day.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: Fantastic pair of underwear. Perfect for the gym, going out, the office – for anything, really. Well thought-out design with balanced colors and accents. We like the C-IN2 Low Now Show Profile Brief and especially like the really cool Hand Me Down colors. No complaints at all.
