Hey everyone it is great to be back reviewing again. I have been super busy over the last year or so, and been helping out behind the scenes here at UNB. It is good to be giving a helpful insight into some of the new styles and brands coming out in men’s underwear for 2012. I love trying new brands and this brand has me very interested.
I am reviewing the Luis & Juke Pink Jimmy Trunk in a size medium. This is the first pair that I have ever had the chance to wear from this particular brand and I have to say it won’t be my last. If you are not familiar with Luis & Juke, they are from across the pond in the UK. They don’t have a ton of different cuts, but the colors and patterns are enough to keep this brand looking fresh.
The first thing that I noticed about these undies was the bright pink fabric and the purple waistband. I love bright colors and patterns and these did not disappoint. When I opened up the package I saw that they looked a little bigger then what most mediums do and after I tried them out I can say that they do run a little bigger then normal. I am a 32 waist and the mediums fit 32-34. I would recommend that if you are on the fence about what size to get, go smaller. The design of these undies is great. The bright pink offset with the purple waistband and purple stitching is one of my favorite color combinations. If pink and purple aren’t your colors of choice, don’t worry these come in other colors as well.
The material is pretty standard. It is a 95% cotton and 5% elastane. This combo gives it just the right amount of comfort and stretch to stay in place and makes these undies perfect for all day, everyday wear. The waistband is a standard one-inch and doesn’t dig in or pinch like some undies that I have tried. The purple waistband also features the Luis & Juke logo in orange. Not sue why they choose an orange logo with pink and purple but that is not too big of a deal for me. These also have a closed fly, so if you are a guy that like a fly in the front, these are not for you.
These undies fit great and look great. They are a trunk cut so they have a little shorter inseam then a boxer brief but provide enough coverage all the way around. They fit right at the waist, which is great as well. If you are looking for something that sit a little lower on the waist I would look else wear.
- Color and “flashy factor”
- Comfortable for all day everyday wear no matter what you are doing
- Sizes run a little big
- Orange Logo on the waistband doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the design.
