BRIEF WORN: Small Turquoise Brief
The Look: Sporty, Summery, Light
The Design: Rufskin hits one out of the ballpark with the design of their Gemini 2-pack. Both fabric and cut ease this design into simplistic territory, and the colors hit it home. They achieve by underachieving, here, and it provides a truly remarkable pair of underwear. An off centered and slanted “R Team” logo is appropriate and not distracting, and the lack of waistband is really the design element to focus on here.
The Fit: In a word: perfect. The light, breezy fabric literally disappears when you pull these briefs on and the ultra low-rise cut sans waistband feels remarkably solid on the hips. We doubted the fit of the pouch, but it supports surprisingly well which again speaks to their ability to succeed by staying away from heavy-duty pouches and design in general.
The Construction: As you’d expect from a lifestyle brand that also offers denim and swimwear, the construction here is flawless. Only two pieces of fabric are used, but with the seamless construction, it might as well be one. They really do prove that less is more in the construction of the Gemini brief, and do it with awesome, Spring colors.
The Underwear Expert Opinion: This may be the perfect pair of underwear for the summer. It’s simple, and soft and provides a barely there feel. The low-rise design make these perfect for just about any pants, but the way it highlights the stomach muscles give that sex factor that may have you not wearing any pants at all.
