Today I'd like to introduce you to a new brand with a little review. Rounderwear is a brand that has recently come to my attention. They have A LOT to offer in the way of underwear for men. Just a brief perusal of their website reveals this. They have everything from boxers, to briefs, to jocks, to thongs and everything in between. They have a number of different collections to offer as well. There's the classic Rounderbum collection as well as the Jam collection (which has several collections within it). They also make underwear for Joe's Jeans and Seven7 Jeans. Today I'm going to review the Jam Beat trunks.
The fit of these trunks is perfect. It's exactly what you would expect from a trunk. It's close-fitting and hugs the body but not too close. The leg length is good. It isn't too long but isn't so short that it's confused for a brief. They fit very well through the crotch so that they not only don't ride up, there really isn't even any possibility for them to do so. As far as comfort goes, these are great for all day wear. The fabric is lightweight enough that they are great for summer wear despite being trunks, but they don't feel flimsy either. The fabric isn't super stretchy like lots of underwear, but it's just stretchy enough. This helps them maintain their shape and stay fitted to the body. The waistband is also super thin and sits nice and flush up against the body. The contour pouch isn't too tight, but somehow manages to make my package look quite huge (if I do say so myself).
These really are a great looking pair of underwear. While there isn't a lot going on, they're still incredibly stylish. This is partially due to the super stylish, metallic waistband with funky print pattern. But believe it or not, just having an excellent fitting pair of underwear makes them look that much better. It really helps these to stand out from the crowd. Not only are they fresh and colorful looking, they also just look great because they fit great.
At $25 a pop that's a pretty typical price tag for designer undies these days. And for something that looks and fits so damn well it's a good deal. They also are good quality. I honestly want them in every color they make and more! Seriously that's my only complaint, that I don't have more and that they don't make more colors!
Overall, I give the Jam Beat trunks a total score of 8 based on the following criteria:
FIT -- 10 (out of 10) - Superb fit adds to the overall look and style.
COMFORT -- 9 (out of 10) - Great lightweight fabric, perfect for summer wear or really any time. Wish the pouch was more supportive.
STYLE -- 8 (out of 10) - Very stylish waistband. Wish they had more color options
QUALITY -- 8 (out of 10) - High quality. A little bit of fading on the pouch elastic.
VALUE -- 8 (out of 10) - Average price. Worth it.
