The Design: With an icy, busy design, and bold white cuffs around the thigh, these Chik O Loko Boxers are unique; seemingly made to capture a nightclub aesthetic, they seem destined for a night out on the town. The off-center design on the right of the underwear is an interesting choice that we’re in to. The logo plastered wide band, we’re not as crazy about. These underwear do flatter the right parts, however, and to that end are a good choice for everyday wear.
The Fit: The Chik O Loko boxer-briefs are soft and comfortable with a nice, breathable feel. The leg bands seem to prevent the rear from riding up, and the front pouch really holds well. The waistband isn’t as comfortable, as it’s textured and embroidered with the logo, and thus not as flush on the skin… but it’s manageable. The tag in the rear is almost imperceptible. Almost.
The Construction: Upon putting on our pair of Chik O Loko Boxers, we noted that there was already a thread loose in the leg. Upon further inspection, we found a couple of others in the waistband of these boxer-briefs. It’s hard to imagine this pair would hold up well, if they’re already fraying before we’ve warn them. At around $18 a pair, they’re not extraordinarily expensive or anything, but we still expected more in terms of durability and quality.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: We like the feel of these boxer-briefs and can even get around the bold aesthetic. The construction issues are a bit glaring though, and we can’t but feel that they really drag the underwear down into being less of a value.
