REVIEW: Gigo World Cup Boxer
I love it when underwear brand take something that has the whole world bussing and makes an underwear collection around it. One of my favorite brands is Gigo. If you have never tried them, I highly recommend them. They not only fit great, but they have some of the most fun patterns, colors, and fabric combinations of any brand that I know.
This summer the world was engrossed with everything soccer as the World Cup took over our TV and internet connections. Gigo took all the excitement that is World Cup and turned it into some fun undies. What I like best about the World Cup special edition collection is that it allows you to support your favorite team while supporting, well, you know, your soccer balls.
I received the World Cup style in a size medium. They are a pretty traditional trunk cut undies with a black waistband with a gray Gigo logo and a soccer ball print. The one thing that I really liked about this pair of Gigo, is that it was a more traditional cotton fabric. The other pairs of Gigo that I have had, have all been a synthetic, which I like, but it was nice to try a more traditional fabric. The fabric is very soft and has a great feel to it.
If you have never tried Gigo, one thing you will want to keep in mind is that they run a little small. So, if you are one of those guys that sit on the border of the size chart, I would go with the bigger size. Gigo is known to be a tighter fitting brand, but that is one thing that I love. These Gigo provided a great pouch so even though they fit tighter, there is still plenty of room for your “soccer balls.”
I have worn these running and for everyday wear, and they are great for both. One thing that I did notice is after a few washes the black on the soccer ball patterned fabric has faded, which is something that didn’t happen with my other pair of Gigo.
Overall I really liked this pair of Gigo. They are fun and sporty, comfy and well constructed; all great qualities that I look for in a great pair of undies.
You can see these and the entire World Cup collection on the Gigo website, but if you want to get your hand on a pair you will need to check out a site like Underwear Station. These boxer cuts will cost you around $28 USD. This pattern also comes in a g-string and a jockstrap cut as well. Underwear Station provided me with these undies to review.
