    Chipping in with my thoughts. Having both the undershirt and briefs, they've saved me multiple times from humidity during my trip in Asia. They're unnoticeable when being worn under a dress shirt and they dry up pretty quickly as well. I also have pretty sensitive skin and the way these garments don't aggravate me at all!

    I hope those who won the contest share my sentiments as I think Giin does great work.

    I am a big fan of the product. I wear the underwear everyday, religiously - could not even think of going back to mass produced normal underwear. GIIN underwear is snug, comfy, form fitting, feels like a second skin. They wash and dry super easy. The new pairs feel especially awesome. When you first get them, and are "breaking them in" for the first couple of months, they have that nice super snug feel. I have about 10 or 11 pairs in my rotation. As for the undershirts, they're nice and long, and do not "ride up" which is very annoying with most other undershirts - With any shirt, you cannot even see the undershirt. Love this new brand and what they are doing

    Review of undershirt

    I think the shirt fits great. I am a small in most brands, suit size 36, waist around 30(I got a small). It's close enough to skin without being restricting. Material feels good and most importantly for me breathes well. Has good length to remain tucked but I am a bit short so not sure if this may be an issue for taller people like 5'10" and above. Right now has gone through a couple washes and has held up well.

    Overall I think this is a great undershirt

    Not sure if I saw a price tag on the shirt but that would be good to know

    Thank you for the shirt. Having had it for a few weeks, I can provide, some not very detailed, comments.

    First off, sizing is pretty TTS. I wear a 40 suit and took a undershirt in Medium. It is not baggy, but also not overly tight. The arms fit snug around my "muscles". It wears very light and blends in under all of my shirts. It kept me dry on some of the warmer days.

    My favorite part of the shirt in the neck. It not crew, v or anything I have ever seen. It's more deeply scooped, which is great for my deeper cut V-necks.

    Hope this helps.

    Review of the undershirt. It fits snug without being restrictive. I must admit the material took some time getting used to, but only because I'm used to wearing Uniqlo's undershirts which are silky smooth. The best feature of the undershirt is probably the scoop neck which works better than Uniqlo's v-neck on some of my v-neck shirts/sweaters. Would I purchase the undershirts in the future? I'd probably pick up a couple to wear with my deeper v-neck sweaters.

    A long overdue (sorry Jen) review of the GIIN boxer briefs; which incidentally were received very quickly.

    My body shape is rather difficult to accommodate even in boxer briefs and initially the legs are overly snug but after half an hour's wear they are perfectly moulded to my thighs and do not belly or over-stretch. The comfort is particularly good with the fabric seeming very lightweight but not fragile if that makes sense.

    The lack of seams is not the main reason for the comfort as I have not encountered any particular issues with seamed boxer briefs though I suspect the lack of seams accounts for some of the lightness which is welcome. Overall a quality item. It would be nice to have a selection of colours - I tend to go for darker colours though this may not be possible with the heat treatment.

    Thanks GIIN for the sample.

    This is a review of the boxer briefs that I received as part of the giveaway.

    As another person mentioned, the briefs feel really lightweight but not fragile. The briefs fit me very well. What I liked the most about the briefs was the reinforced legs which helped give a more snug fit throughout the day. Compared to some other brands that I've worn, I haven't experienced significant overstretching yet. Another thing that I feel I should mention is that I wore these mainly during my stay at Thailand. It was quite hot (around ~30 Celsius) and I was also engaged in intense outdoor exercise. Despite that, the briefs remained comfortable throughout the stay.

    Overall, I'm definitely glad that I participated in the giveaway and I'm looking forward to when other colours are also released.

    I've been wearing the underwear for the past year and a half and these are by far the best undies I've ever seen. After 75+ wears absolutely no sagging or stretching - the fit is as true as the day I picked them up. Very comfortable. Would recommend 100%.
