During a recent trip to Skivvies in Dallas, Jockmail’s low rise “No Fly Brief” caught my eye hanging on a wall display. I’m always on the lookout for unusual patterns and unfamiliar brands. I loved this brief’s bright yellow camo pattern, and the Jockmail brand was completely unknown to me. $29+tax later, I was on my way home with something new to test for UNB’s readership.
My test for this pair involved a day of grocery shopping and puttering around the house. This brief proved to be exceptional.
The pouch provided ample, comfortable support, although it isn’t as generous (and the fabric isn’t quite as stretchy) as that found in an N2N Bodywear bikini. Nonetheless, I never felt too constricted or needed to readjust things upfront.
The brief provided perfect, all-over backside coverage. The black leg bands stayed in place without ever being too tight or too loose. Any time I needed to squat down, the fabric stretched appropriately without creeping up the back. In short, this brief’s fit fell within the “Goldlocks zone” of comfort.
The 1.75” black elastic waistband didn’t roll and stayed well below the bellybutton. One unique design feature is the pair’s tag: it’s sewn into the waistband along the right hip. The tag never felt scratchy or uncomfortable to me, but this location might be a turnoff to some.
This brief’s camouflage fabric is composed of 80% polyester and 20% spandex. This blend doesn’t “breathe” as well as a cotton-based fabric, and this brief might not provide comfortable long-term wear if you’re going to be out in extreme temperatures. Otherwise, it is extremely comfortable and supportive.
The brief sadly no longer available from Jockmail’s website (www.jockmail.co), but you might be able to find it in your local brick-and-mortar establishment. You can also contact our friends at Skivvies (www.skivviesdallas.com or 214-559-4955) and order a pair. (For items not available on Skivvies’ website, they will accept and process special requests over the phone.)
The brief comes in five colors: yellow (purchased), red, blue, green, & grey. Sizing includes medium (30” – 32”), large (32” – 34”), and extra-large (34” – 36”). Sizing proved accurate.
I was thrilled with this brief’s performance. I look forward to buying more underwear from Jockmail in the future!
