Baskit is one of those brands that have been with UNB since the very beginning. We have worked closely with them and they have been one of our biggest supports. Over the years we have reviewed them but I was never able to get a pair. Why? Because they never made underwear in my size. At the time I was at least a 40 waist and got up to 42 before I decided to make a change. Now I’m a 36 and working my way smaller. But being 6’4” I doubt I will go much below a 34. So, when I now get a chance to review them I was super excited. I have read the reviews the guys here did and for the most part they are all positive.
The pair I’m reviewing is the Baskit Simple brief. As the name suggest its “simple” but not plain. I have a philosophy that sometimes you need a simple pair of underwear. Maybe you want something that you can wear under a suit or jeans that isn’t too crazy. This line will be perfect. You can get a white pair but they also have colors so you can show your personality. Places this maybe an advantage is going to the Doctor, the gym or somewhere your underwear is going to show. I know we have readers who will wear anything in these situations but not all are that free spirited.
The Simple brief is available in five colors and made out of 96% Cotton 4% Elastane blend. It is not a pair that fit me super tight but gave me great support. It also has a pouch but it’s not too defined. This to me wasn’t a bad thing but I typically go for underwear with a defined pouch. I didn’t hold it against the pair. It fit pretty well and held up. It didn’t loose the shape or cause any issues through out the day.
I wore this pair on a weekend, so you don’t get the typical office review. I had a day shopping and hanging out with friends. My biggest worry was if it was going to hold it’s shape. Knowing Baskit the way I do, I didn’t think it would loose it’s shape, but you never know. Especially with a pair that is higher in cotton. As the day went on the Waistband fit me very well with no binding or rolling. The brief itself also held its shape. Nothing big happened and made it do things it was not designed to do.
One things I loved was the styling. Its very classic take on a brief design. It doesn’t have to be boring. Second thing I liked was the waistband. The signature /baskit/ waistband in grey really set the pair off. Next, I loved it’s in more colors. And not your typical colors, black white and such. Things I didn’t like. There is not too much that is negative about the pair. I would love loved a little more eslatin in the material. To give I big more give.
