Diesel is an Italian fashion brand that makes a variety of clothing items for both sexes. While the company is probably best known for their denim, I’ve found their underwear to be perhaps the most comfortable I’ve tried that is made by a major fashion company rather than a dedicated underwear brand. The “Kory” boxer brief, the item on hand today, is a simple design that works well.
Materials and construction: The material is listed as 95% cotton and 5% elastane. The simple design is form fitting while still being fairly relaxed. This pair doesn’t include the sort of pouch that is found in most of the items I’ve reviewed on this blog, but it is constructed to leave some extra room where the pouch would be. The overall design provides a good balance of support and flexibility without being constricting or tight. 7/10
Comfort and usability: The design is very comfortable. While I wouldn’t use this for activewear, everything generally stays comfortably in position both while sitting and while walking. The looser fit mediates cotton’s tendency towards warmth. If it wasn’t for cotton’s limited stretchiness, I’d name it as my favorite fabric, just because of its balanced feel and function. I think this garment portrays those advantages very well. 8/10
Aesthetics: Very basic, but there’s nothing wrong with that. The bold white stripe and “DIESEL” lettering works well on black waistband. The relaxed aesthetics work well with the design of the boxers. 6/10
Overall rating: 7/10
Big enough? Yes, I find it comfortable.
