WORN: Small, grey Calvin Klein CK One Micro Hip Brief
FUNCTION: Everyday, Athletic, Sexy, Relaxing, Going Out
FIT: True to size
FABRIC: 87% Nylon, 13% Elastane
The Look: Fitted, masculine, sleek.
The Design: If the future had a tighty wightey – this would be it. This collection is a cool, confident and youthful take on the classic brief – but much more supportive, and much more sexy. The clean and narrow waistband with a contrast trim stripe topping it off is simple and appropriate. Calvin Klein is embroidered over the waistband, and off center slightly to the left. From the back, Calvin Klein is embroidered, too, but off center slightly to the right. A small CK One logo patch centered on the waistband, and with neon green lettering, is the only splash of color on this brief, but is not at all out of place. Overall a clean, sexy Calvin staple. Black accent piping dresses this grey brief up making it perfect for casual wear, or something fancier.
The Fit: Perfect. Both the front and back are supportive in all the right areas. The pouch is designed to accentuate, and support – and it does so perfectly and contours, too. The trim around the legs is soft and giving for a comfortable wear. These briefs aren’t tagless, which is the only thing keeping this pair from being stellar, but it’s by no means a burden.
The Construction: Built by Calvin’s standards, the construction is in a class of its own. Stitching is clean: no loose strings here. Fabric is doubled in the front pouch for added discretion and makes for an awesome profile. The quality of the microfiber fabric is top notch and allows the brief to stretch and mold to the assets but return to its original shape after.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: Wonderfully breathable fabric. High-quality, smart design and expert construction paired with clean and modern colors set this brief leagues ahead of the competition. They’d make a great everyday brief, and would be appropriate to wear to the gym on your lunch break or after work, too. As we find in most Calvin Klein underwear offerings, the fit and feel of the fabric feels expensive, but you won’t break the bank picking one of these up. A definite favorite!
