Teamm8: A Review

A while back I first introduced you to an up-and-coming Australian brand called Teamm8, now I'm back to report my thoughts on their undies. For the purpose of today's review I will be discussing the Classic Brief.

Let's start with how they look. First off, the style on these things really can't be beat. They are some of the sexiest briefs I've worn! The cut is such that they just cover all the necessary bits and that's about it. Surprisingly, despite the diminutive profile, they still have plenty of room up front because of the stretch of the fabric. You are sure to feel super sexy all day long just knowing that you're wearing these. I tried the classic briefs in white, and I've got to say, the thread count is high enough that they are a uniform crisp white throughout; a rarity in briefs which often leads to the back and sides of the undies looking semi-transparent compared to the pouch. And the stylish and unique waistband will be sure to have heads turning your way. They are also available in red and black (both with white contrast waistbands).

The fit on these things is quite phenomenal. Very often with super small undies they tend to ride down and expose a little crack when bending over and being active, but that is not the case with these. The fabric stretches well with movement but also goes back into place without leaving baggy briefs. They would definitely make a perfect addition to your gym bag for your work-out routine. I do have to comment though, I am a 28" waist, on the site they claim that S is a 30-32" waist, but the small fits me just fine. That said, they run a little small so you might want to try a size up.

Comfortwise, I have no complaints. The fabric is super soft and comfy and the waistband and legbands stay put without irritating. The quality on these is great. I've worn them and washed them quite a few times without noticing any substantial changes in the fit or quality of the briefs. Like all my undies, I wash them in cold on gentle and line dry them (unless hand wash is noted, watch for an upcoming post on how to wash your undies) and they've held up just fine. They are a little pricey at just over $25 + shipping from Australia, but for the quality you are getting they are well worth the investment. Also as a special for MUB readers from now until January 3rd, get 25% off your purchase at Teamm8 using coupon code "MUB25" at checkout. So that's an added bonus to tryout Teamm8 today!

MY RATING:
Overall, I give the Teamm8 briefs a total score of 9 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 9 (out of 10) - not true to size
COMFORT -- 8 (out of 10)
STYLE -- 10 (out of 10)
QUALITY -- 9 (out of 10)
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10)

Goodbye Jameswinston Co.

For two years now, Jameswinston Co. has brought unique, high-quality underwear to the men's underwear scene. They have been one of my personal favorite brands and the only brand to get a perfect 10 score in my reviews. It is with great saddness that I inform you that the company that was Jameswinston is no more. The Jameswinston site will continue to operate for the next few weeks while they sell off the remainder of their line, but after that it will be almost impossible to find. So if you have not yet tried out the brand, I suggest you do so now. Also, if you join them (fill out the form on their website) and let them know that you are a MUB reader, they will send you some great deals and discounts that you can use in the last few days. Brian James, owner and founder of Jameswinston, best expresses the reasons for terminating the brand in his open letter:

Dear All,

Since October 2006 Jameswinston Co. has been a real labour of love - and a gamble. We idealistically entered the men's underwear market looking to improve the generally poor quality of contemporary offerings. With no industry experience whatsoever, there was 'always' something new to learn:- manufacturing; underwear construction; branding; PR, web-design; photography; dealing with retailers, magazines etc. It was also a sector that was exponentially more complex than it first appeared. And we were tackling all of this for the very first time...

We were lucky to receive some great support along our journey; from our manufacturing and packaging companies, through to international magazine editors and forward-thinking retailers. Crucial to our early (and continued) survival were the internet underwear blog sites who kept us 'treading water' while we went through an unbelievably steep learning curve.

Coming back for a third time in Apr '08 was in essence, to prove a point; that a small brand, with enough experience and talent, could do the ‘impossible’ :- i.e. innovate creatively and product - wise to a level above the most successful global competitors…and make it seem almost easy. Ironically, that success in itself became a disadvantage. We observed well - established underwear brands follow the lead of our design elements (e.g. check the number of single, centralised logos on brand waistbands these days) while they, alongside magazines, wider media and even renowned pro - photographers, took direct inspiration from our marketing / visual ideas…ideas many of you told us were amongst the most cohesively creative seen in any brand. Our far from market - leader status made for incredible frustration when we couldn’t adequately capitalise commercially and subsequently remained widely unacknowledged for that influence.

So, we’ve struggled through market naivety and higher than anticipated initial investment costs, especially those of an unscrupulous yet low on creativity, early web-designer .... In addition, the ‘hits’ taken by all start-ups when they make mistakes are multiplied tenfold in this particular market sector. Well now, and off the back of our most successful trading period by far, we’ve decided to bow out. As put simply, if we can’t get near the operational / financial set-ups of the larger players, everything we do next (in this ‘crunch’ dampened economy) will become a monumentally thankless task. Not great timing, admittedly, as there was so much more to come with our new styles and designs.

Ultimately, it’s of regret our small size and costly, early mistakes were the only obstacles to creating an enduring, competitive brand. And while ‘living the dream’ was often more akin to a nightmare, for four short months (Apr - Aug '08) our unique new range innovations were an incredible sell - out success. That meant we actually became ‘the undergarment of choice’ for a damn good few of today’s males worldwide. I think we can call that mission accomplished...

Sincerely,


Brian James - Director

Jameswinston (Underwear) Co. Ltd

Introducing Parallel


A while back, aussieBum introduced a boxer short with integrated enhancing technology called the pilobtr. Now they have extended this concept even further with a new line called Parallel. I believe that the cut is exactly the same as the pilobtr, but there are now more color options (all in stripes) and they are made of cotton (instead of satin) so they can be worn everyday. These boxers are very fitted and will show off all your assets superbly, frankly the only reason I am opposed to wearing boxers is because they are so loose and unsupportive, but these boxers solve both those problems. So definitely give the new Parallel with support pouch technology a try today!

You won the Jackpot!


You've all just hit the triple 7 jackpot at JockBoyLocker, that means that you get 21% off three hot brands from now until the end of the month. These brands are Ginch Gonch, C-In2, and Ed Hardy. Enjoy!
