3.0 out of 5 stars not what was expected, March 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Calvin Klein Men's Steel Micro Low Rise Trunk (Apparel)
I found some previous comments to be true, the material is extremely soft, and feels great when just feeling it, but for briefs, it's a little too soft. This causes the "legs" to ride up so that it fits much more like a sport brief (like a bikini Speedo) rather than like a trunk or boxer brief. Also looks kind of funny, like it's half way between a trunk and bikini sport brief. The "legs" will not stay down where they belong after the slightest movement. The good parts - I slept in it. If a brief is too tight in the waist, or not supportive enough, or way too tight on the "package", I can't go to sleep or stay asleep when wearing it, and I slept well in this, all night without having to get up in the middle of the night to rip it off. The waist is at a good height, not as low as it looks in the pictures, but definitely still at a fashionable and very comfortable height which works well under snug fit jeans. The pouch configuration feels pretty good at first, but is a little small and allows edges of the sac to get pinched at the edge of the pouch when worn under jeans (I am not above average size in this department). The width of the elastic waist is nice, they did that part right. I'll occasionally enjoy wearing this one, but won't be buying any more. I don't think it's worth the price.

I have recently gone on a "hunt" for the most comfortable underwear, buying several briefs, boxer-briefs, and compression shorts, and to date, my all time favorite underwear is sold on Amazon as a swimsuit but it's 90% brief underwear and only 10% swimsuit, it's the "Men's Bikini Swimsuit Platinum Sport" and the price is pretty good compared to just about anything else found on Amazon. I was clued onto it by some of the reviews "complaining" it was more like underwear than swim wear, and I, therefore, purchased it for use as underwear and am VERY happy with it.

After some time since the original review, I have had ocasion to purchase a couple different styles of CK briefs at a discount department store chain for a lot less than prices normally found on-line (after experience with this one, I would not have purchased any more CK at the "retail" price). I have found that even at the discount prices, the CK briefs are not a good value, I have the same complaints about each CK, and they are all way overpriced for the overall quality. The ad and package pictures make them look a lot better than they do when in use. I think CK is depending on the name to sell the product. I have found that briefs made in the papi name are far better than CK in all aspects, and they offer a larger variety of styles, the prices are lower than normally found for CK, but would be a much better value even if same price.
