Reason I bought these is because I love the Essential Contour Pouch briefs. I was told by the 2xist customer service team that these were the same cut but with added stretch. Sounds like a perfect pair of underwear.
However, these are not the same cut. The Essential Contour Pouch Brief is beloved because it has a fuller cut to it but doesn't look like your grandpa's underwear. They look like a brief that men should wear, not the bikini panties that Calvin Klein and others are trying to sell.
These are ok, kind of skimpy but the material is really nice. I don't understand why they don't offer an XL size either.
