REVIEW: Candyman Fashions – 9516 Zebra Boxer
One of my goals this year working on the Underwear News Briefs blog is to expose our readers to some brands of underwear that they may not know about. Candyman Fashions is one of those brands that I wanted to bring to our readers.
Candyman Fashions looks to role playing costumes to get inspiration for their underwear. However not all of their undies have a “costume” feel. They have some great undies with a lot of fun, unique, and sexy features that you will not find with any other underwear company. Their fabric is one of a kind and you must experience it to really grasp its uniqueness.
I received the”9516 Zebra Boxer” in a size medium to review. This is one of those styles from Candyman that is not a costume, but just a fun pair of undies. They feature a zebra style pattern on the hips and butt, and a solid black front and inside thigh panel. A solid black logo waistband trims it off and adds a little extra “pop”. When I first pull these undies out of the package, the first thing that I noticed was the fabric. It has a shiny look to it. The black front and inner thigh panel almost looks like leather. However, this fabric feels nothing like leather. It is thin but durable, and it stretches and moves with you without any issues. These undies fit great and looks even better .My first impression of the front pouch wasn’t the best. I found it to be a little small, but as I wore them, they almost conformed and molded to my body and we actually very conformable to wear. The one drawback that I did notice is the leg openings did ride up a little, but not enough for me to really notice too much.
These and many of the other styles from Candyman are great to wear for daily wear, but these undies really shine when you wear them out on the town. The fit is great for all day wear, but the patterns, colors, fabric, and sex appeal of these undies are meant to be noticed. They also can add a little extra spice in the bedroom. I wouldn’t recommend wearing these to the gym or out for a run. I am not saying that you couldn’t, but I believe there are better undies for that. Best to let these eye catching undies be seen in the wild and not full of sweat while you are doing to squat workout.
Overall, I really enjoyed these undies. They add an element of fun and a little “something different” to my ever expanding underwear collection.
You can purchase any of the Candyman Fashions collection from a variety of online men’s underwear stores. The reviewed boxers retail for around $30 online. This zebra style also comes in a brief. Check out Candyman’s new Spring 2010 collection that was just launched for some new styles on their website.
