The quality of Artificial Flavor is excellent. As I said, the attention to detail is fantastic. These truly are briefs that will last you a lifetime (if you so choose and if you follow the washing directions). They are a little pricey, but considering all the use you can get out of them, the cost is very reasonable. So if Artificial Flavor has not yet found a place in your underwear drawer, you should help them find one soon.
Overall, I give the Artificial Flavor trickster trunks a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9.5 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 9 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 10 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10)

Video Overview: This past Friday, the Ginch Gonch Boys attended the feature premiere of Boy Culture, and then headed to the Roxy to celebrate with the notorious Perez Hilton at his special Birthday Bash. Capturing these two exciting events on video, the Ginch Gonch Boys present to you their first Brief Greetings video.
The premiere of Boy Culture was a great success and all the stars, including actor Darryll Stephens, were well suited in their gear wearing their lucky Ginch Gonch / Boy Culture exclusive underwear.
After a fun-filled trip down the red carpet on the way into Perez’s Party, the Ginch Gonch Boys enjoyed the company of a star studded list, including Dita Von Teese, Kelly Osborne, John Stamos, and of course Paris Hilton. The party was a blast, filled with paparazzi and cameras flashing everywhere. It was a who’s who singing happy birthday to Perez Hilton. Wearing their Nice Guns, the Ginch Gonch Boys got fully loaded and carried cupcakes for the birthday boy, and the crowd sang and wished him well – another year of great fun, gossip, and fashion trends. The Ginch Gonch Boys got a lot of attention from men and women alike throughout the night.

Overall, I give the Cricket Syndicate box-cut briefs a total score of 8.5 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 7.5 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 10 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10)
And guess what... there is going to be a great incentive in the near future for those who write comments, so start commenting now!
Also, I really would like to continue the Underwear Answers series, so please send me your questions, I'm sure you must have some. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are looking to buy from sierratradingpost.com, (where the sale is) be advised that there is a bit of miss-information. On the site they have posted that the fabric is a blend; it is not. They also have the sizing all wrong. I bought a size small, which they listed as 30in. The size chart on the package itself lists USA sizes S = 36, M = 38/40, L = 42/44, XL = 46, XXL = 48. Obviously the sizing runs quite large. I’m very glad I didn’t buy the medium, and as it is the small is almost too big. Plan accordingly.
Overall, I give the Calida brief a total score of 8 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 6.5 (out of 10)
COMFORT -- 9 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 8.5 (out of 10) (the stripes are cool)
QUALITY -- 9.5 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 5.5 (out of 10) (there is no need to spend the $21 retail price)
An aside from UMan: I also really like the look of this trunk from Calida.
