REVIEW: Gigo World Cup England Boxer
Gigo is one of my favorite underwear brands. They do a lot of fun and funky things when it comes to men’s underwear. They have a great selection of colors, patterns, and cuts, that will satisfy any guys underwear taste. For traditional cut and conservative colors, to wild and crazy cut and patterns, Gigo is one of the most versatile underwear companies out there today!
I know I was cheering for the USA this year when the World Cup took over our world this summer. But no matter what team you were cheering for, Gigo made a pair of undies for you. This summer Gigo introduced a special edition collection in honor of the World Cup. They had a pair of undies for all the major teams, including Canada, England, Argentina, Brasil, USA, Mexico, Netherland, France, Itally and Germany. So no matter what corner of the globe you were cheering from, there was a pair of undies to match.
Even though I was cheering for the USA, I was really intrigued with the Dark Blue England Boxers. They just caught my eye and I just had to get my hand on a pair. Lucky for me, I have connections!!
I received the Gigo Dark Blue England boxers in a size medium. They have a navy blue waistband with a gray Gigo logo which looks great peeking over the waistband of your shorts or jeans. The undies are made out of a cotton/spandex blend, which is pretty standard in underwear. It is the right amount of cotton to make the undies feel well constructed, but that little extra spandex allows the undies to move. The fabric is a dark navy blue. On the left side of these undies, Gigo has screen printed a modern looking England flag. It starts just left of the pouch and continues around the back. It really does look amazing, and the contrast between the navy and the White and Red flag is awesome.
I was very excited to try these one. Gigo is known for fitting a little on the small side, so if you decided to get a pair for yourself, check the size chart, and if you aren’t sure, go to the next size bigger. The pouch was pretty standard and fit great. There was plenty of room and I didn’t feel cramped or squished. The waistband is also very comfortable. The care tag on the back of the waistband was kind of annoying though. The only thing I didn’t like about this pair of Gigo, is that the fabric is meant to stretch, however, since the left side is screen printed all the way around, the screen printing didn’t allow the fabric to stretch naturally. So the leg opening on the screen printed side, felt tighter then the other side. It didn’t bother me enough where I couldn’t wear them, but it did take some time to get used to.
Overall I liked these Gigo, like the rest of the Gigo I own. I think there are a few things that could have been thought out a little better, but nothing that would discourage me from buying Gigo again!
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
