Underweardude Recommendation: If you are looking for an interesting, non ergonomic pouch. A skimpier cut brief with bit of personality to it. Give this pair a try.
Hi all, Underweardude here. Today i’m reviewing an interesting pair. N2N sent this pair for review. When I first saw the N2N Lounge brief, I was intrigued. For a few years now N2N has been making pairs with the idea of them being good for sleeping. Or lounging around the house in. Is the lounge brief good for lounging around the house in, and can it handle a full day as well? Read on to find out.
Made from a 95% Rayon, 5%Spandex, blend, the pair is quite soft. The material has some stretch, but not a whole lot. It doesn’t matter too much, except that it makes the pouch w little more restrictive at times. Speaking of the pouch, this pouch is not the N-hance pouch that N2N is known for. Rather, it is a contoured pouch where the center vertical seam is only on the bottom half of the pouch. Very similar to the Almost Naked line by Andrew Christian. N2N calls this a seamless front pouch. So if you were looking for a pair to really showcase your goods, look elsewhere. The pouch is fine, and I feel like this kind of pouch is better fitting for this pair. You aren’t trying to show off, you are just hanging out. Construction and sticking is up to N2N’s usual high standards. Though in some places on the inside elastic can be slightly seen, but that’s not a deal breaker.
This pair is also different from many past N2N pairs due to the adornment the pair carries. The size/care tag is an almost chocolate gold,. Rather than the usual plain white. Which I have never seen before on an N2N pair. A small branded tag sits on the right hip of the pair as well. Metallic grey with that same gold forming the lettering. It looks nice, but I’m not quite sure why the outer logo tag was necessary, as much of what N2N makes isn’t branded. Still, it is an interesting touch. That does help to make an otherwise black brief interesting.
The cut helps make this pair different as well. While called a brief. It’s barely there waistband and high cut legs make it practically a bikini brief. I wasn’t a huge fan of the look at first, but it’s grown on me. The pair sits just right on the hips, too. Not too low, not too high. I am a fan of the thin, stylish waistband. You almost don’t notice that its there when you first see the pair. The back is basically a normal full back that you would expect from a brief. Though on me I found the lower part to be slightly too small, but just. The size small pair I received was a little bit tighter than N2N usually is at first. That may be due to the midwestern diet I had on my recent vacation. I am also right in that dead zone between S and M, so sizing is kind of a crap shoot for me.
I wore the Lounge Brief on a somewhat busy weekday with a meeting and long hours of work, and it worked pretty well. My only real complaint is that it isn’t the most breathable pair. Not unbreathable, but I wouldn’t wear this pair to go exercising in either.
So how does the pair do when living up to its name and lounging about? Well, I’m not one for lounging around in just my underwea. I don’t think you really need a particular pair for that. The pair performs admirably in that regard. I tend to think for that you would want something comfortable but still looks good, and the Lounge Brief hit’s that mark. This pair will definitely be worn again. I think it is a fine pair for everyday wear, and will be going into my everyday drawer.
