I get the chance to review another great pair from N2N Bodywear. Much like the Signature Trunk, this Seafarer Brief is a style N2N has had in their line up for a few years. Each season they redefine the line and change up the colors. It’s much like revisiting an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. The Seafarer line has three new colors, black, light blue and white with a white waistband and trim. I have reviewed the other briefs before and looked forward to seeing if anything changed.
I received the light blue pair in a size large. The large fit my 36 waist very well. I wore this pair on a weekend that was pretty active with errands. I know you’re shocked it was not another day at the office. Whereas the Signature line I reviewed this week has a definite pouch, this one is the opposite. There is no defined pouch design with this pair. You may think this is a problem but the way the material is made it has extra give that felt great and almost created a pouch. Speaking of material, the previous materials at times to me seems a little too loose. Granted it fit great but I could always hoped for better support. This material (90% cotton/10% Spandex) seems thicker for a lack of better word. It gave me a bit more support than previous editions of the brief. So my active day really gave this pair a test and it passed.
Sizing with N2N is pretty much what you see on the site. The large fits a 36 waist fine. They are pretty much on American sizing. I am 100% confident that you will get the right size. N2N makes underwear guys want to wear. A few years ago they added XL to their size line up and it has expanded their audience.
I really liked the new material best. I’m not sure how to describe it but it just seems thicker. It gave me great support through out my running around town. I was on the go from the morning till afternoon. Next thing I liked was the color. The light blue is one we haven’t seen from N2N that often. This year one of the big trends is lighter colors in underwear. The light blue is a welcome addition to the underwear drawer. The fit was another thing I liked about the pair. Even without a defined pouch it gave me the support I needed through out the day. As for Con’s….I can’t really think of any other then maybe add more colors. Which is a very superficial con and I’m sure next year we’ll see some great colors like last seasons orange.
I really like giving a brand multiple reviews. It shows if they keep up their standards. N2N is definitely keeping up and improving. They always try to out do themselves each year. My previous pairs have been XL and I’m glad I have one of my favorites back in my underwear drawer. It really sucks to not be able to wear your favorite paris of underwear. But the trade off to be healthier is worth it.
