I am reviewing the Gregg Homme Snakeskin Thong from the Gregg Homme New Collection. So first let me preface this review by saying, I am deathly afraid of snakes. I absolutely cannot stand them. I can’t even watch them on TV without have to leave the room. However, when I got these in the mail, I couldn’t wait to get them on. The initial look and feel of these were amazing. There was not way I was going to be running in the opposite direction from these bad boys. Not only was the styling really cool, but they were from Gregg Homme so the “sexy” factor was going to be awesome as well. This particular style come in string, boxer brief and brief cuts.
Ok, so I am a thong guy! I don’t mind wearing them at all. The “floss” effect doesn’t annoy me one bit. I think they are sexy and most guys give them a bad wrap. I have not always been a fan but keeping an open mind when it comes to undies, is something that I have always tried to do. I wore this pair to work on day and they did a really good job. It was a pretty average day of meetings and sitting at my desk, but I really didn’t mind these at all. The pouch up front was very room and held everything in place. It also seemed to lift my package a little while gave the illusion that it was bigger, which was something else that I really liked. I will take all the help I can get! The waistband is only ½ an inch thick so it is very minimal and it’s made out of a faux-suede material, which is super, soft and comfy. They also have the Gregg Homme Logo stitched to the waistband front and center. The pattern is so amazing. It really looks like true snakeskin. The material is soft and stretchy, so your “snake” has plenty of room to grow if it needs too!
I got a size medium for this review, and it fit great. I usually wear a medium and these fit true to size. The pouch up front was roomy and added plenty of support and the string up the back was thin and hardly noticeable at all. These are all things that I look for in a great fitting thong. One of the other things that I really liked about this thong is the “Y” shaped back. Most thongs are just a string from the bottom of the pouch all the way up the back. These added a little more sexiness as the pattern is carried around to the Y-Back, This added just a little extra coverage and stability to the back of the waistline. I wouldn’t feel the need to go up or down a size if you are thinking about purchasing these. They are very true to size!
Like I said, I wore these all day at work and I thought they did a great job. However, I would probably keep these in the drawer for a date night or when I know they will get the attention they deserve. But it is nice to know that they will work for everyday wear if I am feel like adding a little “sexy” to my work day. The pattern and fit are also amazing and everything about the thong is spot on. The one thing that I didn’t like, and this is so small, but the seam where the pouch and the “thong” met up was a little bulky. Nothing that would make sure throw these to the side by any means, but it was something that I noticed and is important when finding a great thong!
Overall, I really like this thong. When I found out I was getting it, I really wasn’t sure what to think, but I am so glad that I had the opportunity to review this. I don’t think this is the thong for the “first time thong buyer”, but if you like thongs and have worn them before, this is one you should add to your wish list. The pattern along makes me what to try one of the other cuts from this collection. The material is awesome and just an overall well constructed thong! I have worn this a couple times now since I have received it to review, and every time I put it on, I love it just a little more!
- The Pattern and Material is one that you have to see and experience to really get an idea of how AWESOME it is.
- The Y-Back adds a little extra coverage around back but doesn’t take away from any other part of these undies.
- The waistband is thin and amazing comfortable. Didn’t dig in and everything stayed right where it needed to.
- The Pouch is roomy and supportive.
- The only one that I have is the little seam between the pouch and the thong is a little bulky.
- Daily Fit: 9
- Sizing: 10
- Construction and Material: 9
- Styling: 10

I am reviewing the Gregg Homme Rodeo Boxer Brief in Red from Gregg Homme’s new collection. I have tried a few other pairs of undies by Gregg Homme in the past but it had been a while, so I was really excited to see what his new collection was all about. When I first got these in the mail, the first thing that really caught my eye was the fun plaid pattern. When I took them out of the package I got another surprise. They are made of a somewhat sheer material, which I really liked. It provides just enough transparency to show off what you are rockin’ without being too reveling. It totally added an element of “sexy” that I have come to expect from Gregg Homme. This whole line comes in Blue, Yellow and Red. You can also get this style in trunks, jock, string or a thong. All are VERY sexy
I wore the Rodeo Boxer Briefs to work for a day and I can honestly say that they did a great job. The material is very thin, but it feels very strong. The waistband was very comfortable as well. The waistband is a standard 1” elastic band. However that is where it stops being “standard” It has a fun brown and black southern pattern to it, which go right along with the styling and pattern of the brief itself. The one thing that I didn’t really care for was the opening around the legs. They were a little tight for my muscular thighs and I found that they did cut into my leg a little bit after I had been wearing them for a little while. I also noticed that they didn’t stay in place really well and leg openings did ride up a little into my crotch area. With that, the material actually stretched and I did not get the feeling that my boys were being squished. For the most part they wore great during all daywear. I did switch out of them before hitting the gym. I am not sure how they would hold up. These are a pair that I will save for date night for sure.
The pair that I got from Gregg Homme to review was a size Medium, which is what I usually wear. The Rodeo Boxer Brief fit very true to size. I didn’t have any issues with the waist being to tight or a lack of coverage. I have a little bit of a bubble butt and these fit perfect. The only thing I would comment on sizing is again the leg openings. They were a little tight for me, but then again I have more muscular thighs then most guys my size. I would say if you are looking at buying a pair of these, you can stick with what you usually get and you will be happy. They were roomy in the front and fit great around the waist.
So there are a lot of things that I really liked about this pair after wearing them for the day. First the overall look of these. I have a little bit of a thing for country boys, so this I thought the pattern and styling was spot on. I love the fact that the material is so lightweight and sheer, yet doesn’t feel like you could put your finger through it, if you pushed hard enough. The waistband is comfortable and it adds to the styling of the undies. I didn’t like the fact that they legs were not cut to fit my body style. I think if they would have added a little more elastic “stretch” to them, I would have liked these even more.
Overall, I really did like these undies. Gregg Homme is a great brand and I have enjoyed all the pairs that I have every reviewed from them, and this pair is no different. These are going to the top of my undies drawer when it comes to date night. They are sexy and fun. They are not over the top crazy but yet fun enough to provide just enough spice to your night.
- They have a fun and sexy pattern and materials
- Great coverage and they fit true to size
- Waistband is well incorporated into the overall style of the undies, plus it is super comfy.
- Leg opening is a little tight for guy with bigger or muscular thighs
- They tend to ride up after wearing for a long period of time.
- Daily Fit: 8
- Sizing: 10
- Construction and Materials: 10
- Styling: 10
- Daily Performance: 7
- Overall: 9

Today is the last day to vote in our Underwear of the Month. You have some great choices this month including Calvin Klein, Pistol Pete, Gregg Homme and 2(X)ist. To vote go to our Voting page at http://www.underwearnewsbriefs.com/2013/05/vote-for-underwear-of-the-month-5/
What Makes Great Date night pair of Underwear? One that will be remembered for future dates? We have a few suggestions on that. But the underwear depends on which date it is (first, thrid, or fifth) and the connection you have to the other person on the date with you.
Over the course of the blog fewer things have brought controversy like bringing up date night underwear. That is because to each guy “Date night underwear” means something different. Underwear is personal and date night underwear is even more so!
We decided to break down a few categories of date night underwear and have you guys tell us which pair you wear and why?
Classic Underwear – We don’t mean the tighy whities that come in a six pack. Rather a brief/boxer brief that is no frills. It’s styling is simple but very comfortable. One pair that would be good is the 2(X)ist Essential No-Show Brief or Trunk. Another pair is the Calvin Klein Bold Cotton Boxer simple with an off setting waistband.
Colorful/Patterned – Colors are an expression of our personalities. On a date night there is a greater chance the underwear will be seen. I know in the past I have worn really fun/bright underwear when there is a chance things get busy. A great pair of colorful underwear is JOR Paris Brief. If you’re a boxer brief fan then you should look into the Papi Eye Candy Brazilian trunk.
Jockstraps/Jockbrief – Many of our readers wear jocks every day. They are no longer just for the locker room. Over the last few years companies have been putting their own spin on the jock. The C-IN2 Grip jock is the perfect example of a company taking the jock to the next level. If you’re not up to wearing a jock but want the coverage of a jock, the orignator of the jock brief Baskit has the Pure Jockbrief.
Erotic/Mesh – If you’re past the first date or out with your significant other maybe you want to show a bit more of your wild side. This could be either Mesh or something considered wild. If you want to show off everything with mesh then we suggest the Gregg Homme NoDoubt Thong Maximizer, It shows and enhances. If you don’t want to share it all but want to wear something you won’t find in your local department store, then we suggest Modus Vivendi 11011 Leather Look Brief with Zipper.
These are some examples of different types of underwear you can wear on a date night. You can go from mild to wild depending on the date! Let us know what pair you like to wear on your date.
It’s time to vote for Underwear o the Month. Each month we have our four Underwear of the Week compete to see who will be our underwear of the Month. This months choices are:
- 2(X)ist Sail Contour Brief
- Gregg Homme Target Trunks
- Pistol Pete Power Mesh Briefs
- Calvin Klein CK One Micro Hip Brief
Vote below each day for your favorite pair. The winner will be announced Saturday!
