The Look: Like a tight pair of jean shorts. These cheeky underpants certainly prove why the brand calls itself Sly — they’re that rare achievement in fashion: a good joke. The chunky waistband and the neatly-hidden pocket all add to the sense that you really could walk around wearing just these Blue Denim boxer briefs with no problem. And the rear is tight enough to ensure that you’re not sagging.
The Fit: Like a glove. This is a really wonderful pair of underwear. We loved the way that the legs hugged our thighs, and the pouch wasn’t too tight, either. A truly enjoyable wear.
The Construction: Well done. While we wish that the legs were cut a little bit higher, it makes sense with the overall look of the underwear, and we appreciate why Sly decided to do that. Their method of printing the jeans pattern on the underwear was ingenious, and didn’t feel like it was at risk of coming off in the wash or cracking due to heat at all.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: Wonderful. A refreshing change of pace from some of the more serious fashion decisions we’ve seen lately. This youthful energy and willingness to take risks shows Sly to be a strong contender in the world of underwear. Instead of expensive cutoff shorts this summer, go with a Sly look instead!
