La Vie en Rose has built a very solid business over the years, you have probably stopped in to buy something special for your partner. But did you know they have just re-launched their men’s underwear collection with all new fits? We tried them out so you don’t have to.

1. The Comfort: Features a extra pouch in the front to create a more natural feel; these boys are very non restrictive and make you feel almost like you are naked. This styles features a shorter leg with a 2.5″ inseam. Theses wore well all day long but be warned they offer less support for the boys – allowing them to move more freely than a trunk normally allows.

2. The Seamless: Seamless underwear has started to become popular over the last few years, they offer all the support you’re looking for, with no pesky seams cramping your style. These fit like a second skin. Just sleek and seamless, so you can sport them with confidence under the skinniest of jeans or the comfiest of sweats. The seamlesss comes in two leg lengths (3.75″ or 7″ inseams) but we preferred the shorter ones.

3. The Athletic: Made with super smooth microfiber, with an elastic waistband and perfectly contoured pouch for a high-performance, high-comfort fit. This fit features a longer leg than a traditional trunk; the athletic features a 4″ inseam.

4. The Contour: These are a slightly shorter trunks with a square cut. Made with highly breathable modal, they’re designed to wick away moisture and keep you cool and comfortable wherever the warm weather takes you.

5. The Trunk Brief: The are the shortest of the bunch and perhaps the best suited for a hot date. The trunk brief features a 2″ inseam and sheer stripes. The soft-as-silk microfiber hugs your skin without constricting your movement, while the sleek design provides support in all the right places.

  1. Just love the LV96 Comfort style. Great feel and nice cradling of “the boys” I would say rivals MyPackage at 1/4 of the cost.
