The product was remarkable and I found great comfort. That was the trigger, I became inquisitive. I wondered if it was because I was trying a new brand hence Jockey trunk didn't feel as great or actually Poomer was a better product. Then, I immediately bought a Jockey trunk so that the experience is fresh and I could do a real experiential experiment.
Results? I must say Poomer, which is as affordable as Jockey, is definitely a better product than my brand of choice for boxers.
And here is how Poomer scores over Jockey in the following categories:
- Price: At Rs. 150 and odd, the Jockey is slightly higher priced. But the difference is not too much. Actually, in my mind, I position Jockey to be more premium than Poomer. In fact I didn't expect the latter to be so highly priced.
- Comfort: The First Day Test can tell you a lot. If it gives you the best feel on day one, you can almost certainly be sure that it will feel good for a long time before diminishing returns sets in. You get this elated feeling, at least I get it with the good new one.
- Fit: The problem with Jockey was not only the waist but also the legging (for want of another word). Both the elastic top and bottom leg parts roll down and up, respectively. This often causes irritation and discomfort.
- Durability: I observed that in terms of life both brands last almost equally.
Before I close, I thought I will register my quote here on this wonderful subject of "andar ka maamla"
Undergarments are like second skin, we shouldn't be aware of its presence. The moment we are reminded, it means there is a problem with it.
