Luis & Juke Trunks Reviewed

A while back I mentioned a new brand called Luis & Juke that specializes in fun, fashionable underwear for men.  The designs are inspired by 1950s American rock and roll with bright colors and fun prints.  Today I'd like to tell you about their Stevie Trunk, I tried mine in Singin' the Blues, but they're available in many more fun colors

Starting with the fit, these are what I would call a generous fit.  I've got to say they're much more coverage than the underwear I normally wear (especially since I've recently been on a briefs roll).  That's not to say strictly that more coverage is a bad thing, it's just not what I'm personally used to.  The legs hit mid thigh and the back coverage is ample.  I definitely feel like everything is kept in place and under control with these on; no fear of falling out.  The pouch has a functional fly and is well rounded to accommodate your junk.  The ass has seams set to the far sides, which leads me to believe that these would comfortably stretch and conform to those who have more junk in the trunk.  Just a word to the wise, when I first got these they were a little too large for me (granted I'm in between sizes).  But due to the cotton content I was able to shrink them down in the dryer to a more comfy size (although technically you are supposed to line dry these). 

These undies are very comfy.  As I said I feel like everything is held together comfortably in them with no fear of falling out.  The modest coverage makes these great undies for knocking around the house in while the patterns available make them fun and stylish (more on that later).  The waistband is a little wider than most (about 1.5x the size of the average one).  The inside of the waistband is soft and smooth and doesn't cut.  All the seams are flat stitched, making for a smooth and comfy fit all around.  The legbands are a thin elastic that is tight enough to keep things in place but not too tight to detract from the comfort.  And like most comfy undies these days, the tag is printed on the inside, so no itchiness going on there.  And again like many comfy undies, these guys are 95% cotton, 5% elastane (for shape).

I really like the style of these trunks, in fact the style is what makes them.  They're a great comfy, go-go to pair for days when you just need that comfort.  But the style is what makes me want to put them on and feel excited about wearing them.  The pair that I tried is a fun blue and yellow striped pattern, you can definitely see the rock inspiration.  They also have tons of other great, bright prints available, all with that 1950s vibe.  If pattern isn't your thing, they also just have plain colors. 

As for the quality and value?  These undies are great quality.  They hold up well to multiple washes and dries!  The stitching is well done and the fabric is well made.  At £10.95 at Rockola (that's about $17), they're a steal. 

Overall, I give the Luis and Juke Stevie Trunks a total score of 8.5 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 8 (out of 10) - Generous coverage. Mid-thigh, higher waist. For me they were a little large but can be shrunk to size.
COMFORT -- 8 (out of 10) - Very comfy, go-to pair. 
STYLE -- 9 (out of 10) - The style is fun and exciting.  1950s flair!
QUALITY -- 8 (out of 10) - Well made. Holds up to the washer and dryer.
VALUE -- 9 (out of 10) -Much less expensive than a lot of what we talk about here on MUB.  Good buy for stylish and comfy go-to pair.

Michael Kors Launching New Men's Underwear Collection Soon

It seems that everyone who is anyone in fashion has to have an underwear at some point, it's like the sign that you've arrived.  Kind of like how it seems that ever celebrity and their mother has to launch a fragrance line.  Anyway, top American fashion designer Michael Kors, known mostly for his women's handbags, shoes, and of course his prominent role as judge on Project Runway, is now branching into the men's underwear world.  The collection is very basic and consists of briefs, boxer briefs, and boxer shorts as well as an assortment of different undershirts.  All the styles come in three colors: black, white, and powder blue.  Nothing very original or outside the box.  It seems that Kors is aiming to get in with the other department store staples like Calvin Klein, Hilfiger, and more recently 2(x)ist.  The question is will he be able to do it?  His new collection is very basic and far from innovative in my opinion.  I feel that the type of man he's marketing towards won't be so willing to branch out and try a new brand -- the guy who I think would buy his brand is certainly not an underwear connoisseur and thus probably has his brand that he sticks with year after year.  If I was in the market for basic underwear I certainly would branch out and try a brand new brand.  It will be interesting to see how Michael Kors fares against more established brands in the same category like Calvin Klein.  The line also comes in two and three packs, which gives you an idea of the target market.  The new collection is available for pre-order or Kors website for between $26 - $34.  It should be available in department stores like Nordstrom, Macy's and Bloomingdale's soon.  Below is a teaser commercial for the new line.
