Review – Gregg Homme Baller Boxer Briefs

112505-02-far-frontI continue my reviews of Gregg Homme the next pair I get to review for you guys is the Baller Boxer.  The first thing you notice is that the Baller boxer is tiny in the package. Meaning the boxer came in a pouch that easily fit in the palm of my hand. I originally thought it was a brief till I took it out of the package. I was a little worried because it has a thin waistband and super light material. I have tried similar styles from other brands and half way through the day they were falling off… Would this happen with Gregg Homme?

Well I should have known my fears were unfounded. The pair performed amazing. First let’s tackle the waistband. Yeah, I was worried it wouldn’t hold up. It didn’t fit super tight like I usually like. However, it stayed in place all day and never moved out of place or sagged. Which was my biggest concern.

Second the material, which is super thin. I always am amazed with what Gregg Homme does with materials. The hyper stretch material just conforms to your body. I love tight spandex blends that conform to my body. So when I first put this on it was looser then I usually like but through out the day it was super light and really felt like I wasn’t’ wearing undies. Note that the material is also semi sheer, so if you don’t want to show off a little you may not like. It made me think that this would be an awesome summer pair under shorts.

Lastly, the pouch. I’m a stickler when it comes to pouches. This one is defined and I will say I’m amazed at the support I had in it. I wasn’t expecting it to hold me like it did. All I have to say is that I’m blow away by the pair.

I wore the pair to run around errands, around the house and to dinner. Each of these situations it performed above my expectations. I think the material is made for an active guy. It’s hard for me to describe with anything other then amazing.

Now on to the sizing. You are asking what is the sizing? It’s pretty standard with US sizing. I received and XL which fit my 36/38 waist pretty well. I gained a bit of weight back over the holidays but working it off.  As with any brand always double check the size chart on their site, because some brands do change sizes!  I think Gregg Homme has been pretty standard.

Pros:

  • Amazing stretchy material
  • Fit like a second skin
  • Good pouch support

Cons:

  • If not a fan of looser fitting materials you may not like
  • The pair is semi-sheer for those who are modest

Ratings:

  • Daily Fit – 10
  • Sizing – 9.5
  • Construction/Materials – 10
  • Styling – 9.5
  • Daily Performance – 10
  • Overall:  9.8
