Review: Diego Barberi Trunks
We were contacted by Diego Barberi last month. They are a new company out of Switzerland. Here is what they sent us:
“We are four friends from Switzerland and Germany. While getting a beer at the “Apres Ski” (-> it´s called, when you get a drink at a bar or pub directly after skiing. It´s very common in Switzerland/ Austria/ Germany) in St. Moritz (Switzerland), we met a really crazy guy called “Diego Barberi”.
Because we loved him and his name immediately, some more beers later we decided: Wouldn’t it be great to create our own underwear label named “Diego Barberi”!? Style, fabric, fitting, quality, comfort… just the way, as we envision a perfect underwear!???
Now, some months later, we really produced our first Diego Barberi – Trunks 🙂 Please check them out here: www.diegobarberi.com”
The line right now is a set of trunks, each one featuring a different embroidered design. I wasn’t expecting that. The pair I received was the Snow Flake. As you know, I’m not a big trunk/boxer brief fan, but I always try to keep and open mind.
The box is very cool. It presents the great photography produced by the company. They’ve captured their models in the picturesque settings of Switzerland. They have blown me away with the photography. When I pulled them out of the package, the first thing I noticed was the embroidered design. I like that because it will not fade or wear off over time. The next thing, being the cardboard that underwear is usually wrapped around for packaging, is a post card. Yes, a real postcard you can mail to your friends. We take our hats off to you guys for being creative.
I wore them for a day and enjoyed them. These are the types of trunks I like since they are very form fitting. I don’t care for trunks that loose their shape. These moved with me through out the day. The cotton stretched nicely and with the 5% spandex, it definitely moved well with me. If you are a trunks fan, you will definitely like these. They began with a small line and only a few colors but we hope they will grow and we will see more from them.
These are available in four designs and colors. The colors are white, red, light blue, and blue. You can see them all at the Diego Barberi website. These were furnished for review.
