Review: Charles Archer – Edge Brief


Charles Archer: Edge Brief

The Good

The front pouch had a lot of room; unlike compression or athletic underwear, I didn’t feel smushed or restricted.  It felt like I wasn’t wearing any underwear at all because of how the pouch was constructed.

I liked the fit and rise of the Charles Archer briefs.  They sat low on the hip but I didn’t feel like I was spilling out of them.

Also, I liked that the underwear kept its shape after wearing them a day.  It didn’t feel stretched out or loose in the legs or waist.

The Bad

I wish the waistband could have been a little thinner.  Because the underwear was low-rise, the waistband felt bigger compared to wearing a regular-rise pair.

I also wish the Edge brief was made out of natural or cotton materials.  I could see myself incorporating more Charles Archer underwear into daily wear if that was the case.  Hand-washing is the only way to clean them.

Other Notes

Since the briefs are 61% polyester, 33% viscose, and 6% spandex, it does have a synthetic feel.  It reminded me of athletic underwear.

Endowed men looking for underwear with more room in the front would love this underwear.  The seam on the front creates a natural pocket that allows everything to sit naturally.
