Review: C-IN2 Pop Color No Show Brief
Comfortable, Stylish, Classic Low-Rise Brief
There are a few staples in my wardrobe. I’ve written about some, but have neglected one of my go-to briefs for a no-fuss comfortable day: The C-IN2 Pop Color Low Rise No Show Brief.
They’ve been around a while in one form or another and continue to get regular updates in color and waistband, with the current round focusing mostly on brighter tones (where the previous round were more deep, rich colors like brick red, forrest green and plum).
I personally like the wider waistband on these briefs. I didn’t have any issues with bunching or folding – or pinching. (What’s also interesting is I wear a medium in this style – where with most manufacturers I’m on the small end of a large). It’s a stylish logo band that doesn’t get in the way, even on a low-rise cut.
I think everyone agrees you really can’t go wrong with 100% cotton. The feel is natural and soft and is perfect against the skin. Even being 100% cotton I didn’t have an issue with them shrinking after a few washes. Overall, a great feel without any of the hang ups cotton can bring in sizing.
These briefs have the requisite contour pouch that C-IN2 has become known for. It gives you plenty of room so you’re not constrained, but keeps you supported at the same time. The cotton fabric is cut perfectly across the butt and doesn’t ride up, bunch up or give you that unpleasant wedgie feeling. The cut is perfect across my backside.
C-IN2 has done some more “out there” styles lately, and I’m thrilled they’ve kept this one around. While it’s fun to wear more radically styled underwear from time to time (like under a suit for a large presentation) sometimes you just want the classics. A nice, clean fit and vibrant, solid color scheme. And these briefs are my go-to for those moods.
