A New Place to Browse or Buy

#1 Post by MadAboutUW » Mon Apr 30, 2018 2:36 am

The other day I visited a website called Wish.com. It's interesting to look through all the items, but I was amazed when I went to the men's underwear and men's swimwear sections. There were many different style and color options in both menswear sections. The thing both the underwear and swimwear had in common was reasonable prices.

So, whether shopping or just gawking, give it a whirl.

Hi Mad and everyone else,

I actually went on that site and purchased a three pack of some pretty colorful briefs. The only thing is that it's been a month, and I've almost forgotten what I purchased, haha. The good news is that they'll be a surprise when they finally come.

The bad news is that I think a lot of this stuff comes from China and can take a long time to arrive. I'll keep you guys posted.

Any luck yet, Pep?

One of the things I found in the negative when I read reviews of this site is the length of time for the merchandise to be received. The majority stated the merchandise was fine. If you haven't received yours, I hope it comes in short order.

*UPDATE*

Undies finally arrived, around 5/12, which is about five weeks after I ordered them. Not good.

Also, while I ordered large, they were TINY. They actually felt like boys' Large, not men's, and I in fact gave ended up giving them to my friend's 14 year-old son. He was super happy to get them, and he later told his dad they make his "package" look bigger, :lol: :lol: . They are close family friends and giving him the underwear was not awkward at all. My friend could clearly see they were too small for me when I delivered them, and I simply told him exactly what happened: I ordered them from China and they came in the wrong size.

I will not be ordering from the site again.

Cheers everyone.

Pepp

wrong size .... or possibly the difference or inconsistency in standards? .... a US medium doesn't equal a Chinese medium.

a year plus ago, the best underbuddy in the whole wide world sent me a bunch of undies. amongst the uw were pairs from China of sizes ranging from L to XXL. i had variable results with generally the Chinese XL coming the closest to UW M. but no matter the waist size, the pouches are generally a bit constrained.

of one particular pair that i wanted to get another noted on EBAY to buy the next size up. too bad WISH.com didn't take that into account.

Gees, Pep, I was hoping for better results for you. Nice that you were able to (ummm) repurpose them with the neighbor. Thanks for the update, underdude.

case in point, yesterday in my uw grab, i selected and wore a very colorful pair of Soutong striped u convex pouch briefs that you just so happen to be able to buy from Wish:

https://www.wish.com/search/soutong#cid ... 2a35eae9b1

they fit just the way i like uw to fit, snug everywhere. the size?? not my normal M but a XXL !

the dilemma is i see a couple of pair that interest me soooooooo do i buy a XXL or has Soutong "fixed" the sizings so instead of fitting me like a glove i'll be hardly able to keep them on??? :lol: i guess if THAT was the only issue facing me i'm NOT doing so bad!!! :lol:

How did your friend’s son come about getting it? How old is he?

He's 15, but on the smallish/thin side. He is a great soccer player. His dad works for me occasionally, and we're on very good terms. I received my undies when his dad happened to be working for me, and I showed him how ridiculously small they were, and I offered them to him for his son. He happily took them, and later reported his son's comment that he really liked the stuff I'd sent him, that they made his "package" look bigger, LOL. Absolutely 100% true story. I live in a country where people are much less uptight about those things than they are back in the U.S.

When I saw him (the son) later, he thanked me for the undies and told me he really liked them. :D

as i noted above, i was afraid that the uw manufacturer "Americanized" the sizing .... they hadn't which was fortunate for me since i ordered an XL than my typical M! i had chosen ..... wisely! The XL's fit very nicely.
