Too Tight to Review 5: Diesel Hero Fresh and Bright Cotton Modal Trunk

The “Too Tight To Review” series covers the pairs of underwear I’ve tried on that I couldn’t wear long enough to give a fair review. If I can’t keep a pair on for at least the length of the day, I’ll leave a few brief thoughts rather than a full review.

Diesel is a company I’ve reviewed here before. Their men’s underwear is varied in terms of fit, and some of the styles are quite comfortable. When I got the Hero Fresh and Bright Cotton Modal Trunk, I was hopeful about the fit. Many of the most comfortable pairs of underwear I’ve purchased are made of modal fabric, which is stretchy and soft, and this item is composed of 57% cotton, 38% modal and 5% elastane (spandex). Unlike the similar fabric blend found in the BOSS HUGO BOSS Cotton Modal Mini Brief, the fabric in this Diesel offering is thicker, tougher, and more rubbery. The item is well made, and fits over the hips and glutes impressively. The problem is that it is not anatomically correct to any significant degree, and the stretchiness of the fabric is not enough to accommodate the genitals comfortably. As soon as I put it on, I felt very uncomfortable, and couldn’t manage to rearrange it in a way that made it wearable. This experience was a disappointment, but not enough for me to discard my generally positive opinion of Diesel.
