Review: Marcuse United Brief

Gregg Homme Sunstud

Item reviewed: Marcuse United Brief – Yellow

About the product:  The Marcuse United Brief features a 95% cotton-5% elastane fabric blend in eight bright colors with contrasting white piping and a slim white waistband with Marcuse branding. This brief also offers full coverage, a medium rise and a contour pouch with a button-up fly.

What we like: We really liked the look of this pair. It combines that classic boy brief look of bright colors and contrast piping with a sleek, slim cut and button-up fly for a sexy and masculine look.

Speaking of the button-fly, we found some of the small touches on this pair like the button fly, signature Marcuse tag and small piece of fabric for hanging dry on the back to be really cute and to add significantly to overall look.

Though we’ve felt softer fabrics, the blend used here is pretty comfortable and very durable. We didn’t notice much shrinking, fading or roughening of this pair after several washes.

What we don’t like: Overall it was tough to find something we didn’t like about this pair, but if there was something we would improve, we’d make the pouch a bit bigger. There was an ok amount of space, but it could’ve been a little roomier.

We found the sizes that Marcuse uses to be way off. By their size chart, we should’ve tried an extra small. We ended up trying out a medium and aside from the pouch issue we just mentioned, they fit great.

When we’d wear them: Perfect for everyday wear.

Who we’d recommend them to: Guys who are looking for some solid basics to add to their underwear collection.

In three words: Bright. Classic. Sleek.
