While fashion and "street jocks" look great, few of them offer the support of the classic gym class jock. Priape Classic Jock is your high school gym class jock strap (the one that got you into jock straps in the first place) but with grown-up, updated style.
The Priape Classic Jock has a full, robust, classic three-inch waistband. The front of the jock displays a large sewn-in Priape Body logo on the outside of the waistband with the size and care tag on the inside. The tags are well done and, importantly, aren't itchy at all.
Construction seems to be top-notch. The leg bands are affixed with double stitching to the front of the waistband and come together at the bottom of the pouch. In the past, the leg bands of jock straps began at the back of the waistband but lately it seems the trend is to put them more to the front. This may or may not affect the groin-support functionality of a jock but it certainly leaves a more complete view of a guy's behind, which is probably the reason for the re-design.
Riding a bit lower on the hips than a traditional jock strap, this one will fit nicely under low-rise jeans. This means the bold waistband probably won't be visible unless a guy wears very loose, very low rise pants.
Made from 70% polyester, 15% cotton and 15% rubber, the Priape Classic Jock is soft but just stretchy enough. A good jock strap keeps a guy's goods in place all day with no need for shifting or readjustment. This jock does that job nicely.
The Priape Classic Jock is quite comfortable after a day of wear. In fact, it's comfortable both physically and emotionally because the classic look and feel will bring you back to high school. Lots of guys wear jock straps as their every day underwear and there's every reason this one would work under jeans (jeans and a jock strap is a classic ensemble), casual pants and, of course, gym shorts.
This jock strap runs slightly small so Priape suggests that men order one size up from the usual. It's is available in small, medium, large and extra large.
This real man's jock strap also has the bonus of real man's laundry instructions: machine wash warm, tumble dry low (or no) heat. Don't bleach, dry clean or iron it. A real man wouldn't iron a jock strap anyway. Made in the Philippines.
Available in green, brown, red, orange, yellow, royal blue, navy blue, gray, white and black, you can get a Priape Classic Jock Strap for every day of the week and still have some left over for a couple of mid-day costume changes. $14.95 at Priape.com and $15.95 at International Jock.
