2xist Core Swim Brief

A classic swim brief that should be a staple item in any mans suitcase or gym bag. Practically seamless on the main garment and the waist band doesn’t give you a mushroom appearance. Soft, comfortable Nylon/Lycra blend with about a 3″ side and full butt coverage. The leg holes are flexible, so if you have muscular thighs, these fit perfect. The drawstring is an outboard style, which I’m not crazy about but it serves it purpose.

I would call these the “family beach brief”. As a freak, I’m all about people wearing what feels good and looks good, but as a father I do adapt to my environment. Anyone who has an issue with someone wearing these on the beach is a “tight-ass” and therefore their opinion doesn’t matter.

Clever Exsus Swimsuit Brief

Everything that I have ever gotten from Clever has been of the highest quality with a design to fit all body types. The Exsus Swimsuit Brief is just another example of this offering 4″ sides, slightly molded front, full back coverage. The waistband with hidden drawstring are a nice touch and ensures that it fall off in the water. It’s a fitted appearance with a slight shimmer that even the most bashful male should feel confident wearing on the beach this summer.

I have the red/black pair, but they also make these in a Carribean blue. The fabric is a durable nylon/spandex blend and contours perfectly to the body, but doesn’t constrict any movement. The dry off incredibly quick and if you follow the care tips, fading should be a minimum.

IMPORTANT SIZING TIP: Clever apparel always runs small, so size up!

Playa Brief from Unico Swimwear

Sorry the being slack lately, as a new business venture required all of my attention for the past few months and is finally self-sufficient. Before a little R&R in the Virgin Islands with the wife a month ago, I decided to go on shopping spree for new clothes, underwear, and swimwear.

I got a pair of Playa Swim Briefs from Unico Mundo in black and was amazed how comfortable the feel. I think their pictures make the appear cheaply made, but I wrong. Great quality and are perfect for lap swimming, but make sure that the nylon draw string is tied tight (no slack, 😉 They shimmer does add a little wow-factor, but nothing over the top. The swimwear features great detailing with a blue contrasting ‘U’ on the left hip, it is also fully lined with a drawstring waistband and a small key pocket on the right side inside.. This brief swimwear has a 4″ side seam and will have heads turning when you show up! The Unico Playa Brief Swimwear is made from 84% Nylon/16% Spandex

Baskit Playas Rise Bikini Swimsuit

Even though Baskit calls them a bikini, in my opinion they fit more like a brief because they have 3″ sides and offer almost full back coverage. As far as the product goes, they are extremely well-designed and unbelievably comfortable. To be honest, no one looks like the models in the pics, but because they sit low on the waist with wide leg holes, so they are ideal for shorter or stocky guys.

I have a couple these suits in the Silver/Green and Navy/White. They have a shimmer to them that the internet pictures doesn’t make obvious and the silver darkens to a metallic charcoal look when wet. Not to worry though, they don’t fade and go right back right their natual look when dry. The string is enclosed into a fabric waistline band with logo on back and doesn’t leave waist indentions when taking them off. The front pouch provides ampful amout of lift and support so I didn’t feel crammed. As I mentioned before, the back coverage is moderate so feel free to tan without burning your butt.
The major question that I’ve gotten in the past is when and where would you wear these. I think Baskit is going about these totally the wrong way by promoting them for their shock-value. Sure they’re eye-catching, but I think these are relatively conservative as far as briefs and certainly didn’t offend anyone at the beaches I’ve worn them before…..and I live in the Carolina’s. There are much more revealing swimwear out there, so feel free to put these on underneath shorts, follow common sense beach ettiquete rules, and grab a great tan.
