When Saxx asked me if I wanted to review the new Holiday collection I immediately said YES! They sent me two pairs to review! I was told the new collection was based on the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” and I said SOLD! I had to get these! They send some really great ones. The first pair I am reviewing is the Grey with Reindeer print.
I have tried a few pairs of Saxx over the years. They have an innovative pouch design that is designed to give some great support and cause less issues that would make you adjust. The first time you put on a pouch you kinda go “What the heck?” But there are no tricks or such to get it on. You can wear them for every day or to work out in.
We all know I’m not a big fan of trunks/boxer briefs. I never like the lack of support I get from many pairs. This is not something I had to worry about with Saxx. The innovative pouch design would guarantee me good support. There were a few times that it required some adjustment but it wasn’t bad.
I wore this pair on a day full of errands. I was pleasantly surprised that the legs stayed in place. These were a bit longer than previous pairs I have reviewed. They never rode up or caused issues. The pouch like I said gave me some issues but it wasn’t a constant ongoing issue. The fabric is great with Saxx. It’s a 95% Viscose / 5% Spandex blend.
Let’s talk about the print. I am a big fan of prints and this one is amazing. It definitely was ugly sweater inspired. But to me it wasn’t ugly enough! It’s a lot of fun though. This would be a great pair to wear to a Holiday Party or home for the Holidays. It’s definitely something I haven’t seen in underwear before. Few companies have ever done pairs like this, my hat is off to Saxx!
The sizing is good with Saxx. The best thing to do is look at the sizing chart. The XL they sent fit me pretty well. I had no issues with it. It should be pretty standard with US sizing. They are based out of Canada and most Canadian companies match the US sizing standards pretty well.
