Back in the saddle and this time I’m reviewing the N2N Spartan Jock. N2N is one of favorite brands so I wasn’t expecting anything less than another A+ pair of undies. The Spartan line runs the gamut from thong and jocks to briefs and trunks. I received grey/orange but they are also available in mint green/yellow and white with red & navy accents. When I first opened the package I immediately loved the color combination and the fun, Greek-inspired waistband. I’m a pretty simple guy but a little flair here and there is a nice touch. The fabric is 95% cotton and 5% spandex so it’s very soft and has a good amount of stretch. I did expect this to be a “fun” jock rather than an actual gym jock mainly because the leg straps are quite thick and closer to an assess briefs, which in my experience is not very practical for exercise.
I kept thinking of a day to wear these and was putting it off and then realized I needed to get this review in ASAP so I ended up wearing them all day at work. Certainly not my plan but there is something fun about being “forced” to wear something…but that’s for a different blog, I suppose. These actually held up a lot better than I would think for a work day and I actually think they’re better suited for regular wear than active wear.
I wore a medium and they fit well. The size chart says it covers 30”-34” which is a pretty big range. I’m generally a 31-32 and was fine but I think if you’re a 34, they might be a bit snug.
My favorite features of the Spartan Jock are definitely the nice fabric and the fun waistband. I loved the color I received but the others look great, as well, and I definitely want to try the thong and brief. N2N is great about having simple, modern designs but also offering things with a twist when you want to step out a little – or a lot. I could have used a bit more stretch in the leg area but I’ve got tree trunk legs so a good portion of that issue is just me. The “straps” are also pretty thick and did gather every so often but it wasn’t really a problem. The pouch is supportive and shows things off the right amount for me.
I must admit that jocks and assess briefs are never my go-to underwear and yet I have several of both. When comparing these to the others, they definitely rank in the top 3 or 4 – not just in the style department but they were actually more comfortable that I was expecting and ended up being a nice surprise. I also got a surprise when a coworker saw the waistband and made a comment about the pattern. He knows I’m into undies so it wasn’t out of line but did perk me up a bit when I realized this pair will get a nice reaction! 🙂
