Item Reviewed: Bluebuck Green Brief
About the product: The Bluebuck Green Brief is made from 95% organic cotton and 5% elastic with a waistband that’s made from 62% cotton and 38% polyester, elastane, and polyamide. They sit just below the waist and because of the high cotton content of the waistband, it fits comfortably without any pinching or squeezing. The leg openings are actually constructed a little lower on these briefs, giving slightly more coverage to sides of the legs. The Bluebuck Green Brief’s contoured pouch is accented with small, white horizontal stitching along the length of the front seam that matches the white stitching along the diagonal seams on either side of the pouch. This provides a subtle color contrast to the otherwise solid green underwear. The waistband is characteristic of Bluebuck underwear: blue and white stripes around the waist with the company’s name and the blue antlers logo on a white patch on the front. The briefs come in several solid colors, most of which offer the choice of either white or blue stitching.
What we like: What the Bluebuck Green Brief lacks in fancy colors or crazy designs, it more than makes up for in quality and durability. These are a solid no-nonsense pair of underwear with the purpose of providing comfort and to last no matter what you put them through. They feel great, and the simplicity in style gives them a classic look. Plus, the company prides itself on creating underwear with a minimal carbon footprint, so they’re also trying to help the environment. How can you say no to that?
What we don’t like: The more rectangular cut of these briefs, with the extra fabric along the sides, does give it a more “old-school” look which might not appeal to some guys.
When we’d wear them: Fixing up the house/apartment. Going for a hike. Lounging at home binge-watching TV.
Who we’d recommend them to: An environmentally-conscious guy looking for a basic brief that will last and provide comfort.
In three words: Quality. Durability. Environmental.
