DT Clothes review

DT Clothes has brought to you many fun printed drawers for quite a few years. In fact they have already had a name change (they were formerly known as DT Jocks). DT Clothes is a well established and avant-garde underwear company that in many ways is ahead of its time. For instance, they are the first and the only company to bring you fully customizable underwear in their create your own section. Recently they have redesigned their website to include a new design and new styles such as: jockstraps, x-front briefs, loose boxers (a compromise between boxer shorts and boxer briefs), lounge pants, shirts, fully customizable underwear, and even a women's line coming soon (although that will not be blogged about much here for obvious reasons). I have posted about DT Clothes many times, and finally I have the opportunity to sample their ware and review it here. So let's just jump right in.

I sampled the buzz jockstrap. Before I talk about how it felt and how it fit I just want to preface that with the fact that I have never before worn a jockstrap so I really don't have any prior experiences to compare it to. I am very jockstrap illiterate you might say, which you may find odd considering that I know so much about all other types of underwear. But everyone can learn more about things, even the experts (including underwear experts).

The jockstrap fit quite well, the straps fit on quite well and after an initial adjustment (i.e. putting it on) they did not need any re-adjusting throughout the day. I have heard people complain sometimes about the straps of a jock twisting up during the day, but these did not do that. My only complaint about the fit is that the straps were a little tight (they did stretch out a bit though after some wear), this may be that I have never worn one before, but I have noticed with other DT underwear that it fits a little small. So keep that in mind when buying, you may want to buy a size up.

The comfort was great, other than the initial getting used to a jock it was fine. It really is a nice feeling to be completely supported up front and completely free in the back. This jock also has a great feature that allows for great comfort. This feature is the fact that it has a decent sized pouch that allows for one to be flaccid or erect without pulling the straps or the pouch out of place, thus readjustments are never needed. According to Wikipedia (under the Fashion Jock section of Jockstrap), this style of pouch is known as flopper. This may be incorrect, but as I've said I'm jockstrap illiterate, so correct me if I'm wrong. The point is: the pouch not only allows for comfort while flaccid (if it only allowed for comfort while flaccid it would be called a microjock, or so I've read) but it also allows for comfort while erect. So two thumbs up on the comfort.

The style is what really sets this jockstrap apart. Most people may have the preconceived notion that jockstraps are only meant for sports. That is wrong. This truly is a fashion jock, I'm sure it would support just as well in sports as an athletic jock would, but it is really meant to be a fashion statement. The waistband is the normal width of most underwear and the leg straps are much thinner than those of athletic jocks. Also, as I previously mentioned, the pouch is large enough to be comfortable when accommodation is necessary. In fact, the way these look from the front (without seeing them from the back) they could easily be mistaken for a tanga or an athletic brief (the kind with no sides). Also, one of my favorite details of this jockstrap is a tiny logo tag on the center of the back of the waistband. This little detail really adds a lot to them, especially since the back of the waistband has a tendency (as all jockstraps have) to ride up over pants due to the fact that it is not held down in any way in the middle, and thus the logo detailing shows. DT clothes' jockstrap is really very stylish and will help bring an extra (and unexpected) punch to your underwear wardrobe.

Just like all other DT clothes underwear, this jock is of great quality and is well worth the price.

Overall, DT really gave me a great first experience wearing a jockstrap as daily underwear and it was so good that I would not hesitate to do it again.

Overall, I give the DT Clothes buzz jockstrap a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
