When you think of underwear companies, 2(X)ist is one of those that come to mind. They were founded in 1991 and have had continued to make great undies over the years. Each year they create underwear that fans of the brand will find different and fun. Which could mean using great colors, stripes or even an occasional print! This time they have released the Sail Collection. It has a nautical theme in both the styling and color selection. We chose the Sail Sculpted Brief is the Underwear of the Week.
Back in August 2012 I got to meet with Jason Scarlotti about what is new for 2(X)ist. This was one of the pairs he showed me at the time. One of the biggest things that really caught me was the tapered leg openings. The trim on it is smaller at the bottom and goes wider towards the top. It gives it a tapered look that really look good on a guys body. 2(X)ist just didn’t produce a pair they have done before, but paying attention to details that sets them apart. They could just produce their classic briefs in different colors and call it a day. However they know that in this industry you have to keep innovating to stay on top of mind of the underwear buying public.
Color is another area that 2(X)ist really has fun with in their designs. Over the last few years more and more companies are paying attention to what guys want. We don’t want the plain boring undies the three main colors (black, white and grey). 2(X)ist has seen this and is making undies to meet the needs of a color hungry consumer. How are they doing this? With color of course. The Sail line is available in Sour Apple (Green stripe), Pewter Grey (Grey/White stripe), Estate Blue (Blue/White stripe), Lake Blue (Blue stripe) and Brick Red (red striped). The brief has a contour pouch and the stripes going in a diagonal V pattern to show off and accent the pouch. Materials the brief is made out of is a 95% cotton/5% Spandex blend. This allows the pair to breathe and hug the body with out loosing the shape or become constricting throughout the day. Lastly each pair is topped with a matching 2(X)ist logo waistband.
Reasons this pair is our underwear of the week:
- The tapered leg trim to give a great profile
- Color stripes that accent a man’s body

- Ultra Contour pouch
