JockLover calls the UK home & caught the attention of turnipStyle while on Twitter. A correspondence began, who wouldn't want to be friendly with such a handsome chap? Over the last couple years a friendship grew and JockLover has become a part-time contributor at turnipStyle both on the podcast and the online magazine!

Whilst perusing one of my favourite gear sites I looked at the gym short section of “Jockstrap Central” and discovered the jock “n” Short which is as it says is a pair of shorts with a jock built in.
I liked the idea and bought a pair in grey (among other things) and a week later it arrived in the post and I threw it on to try with a run.
This is for me an example of where a good idea doesn’t always work in practice.
The shorts are good quality and feel great against the skin but the jock inside has been sadly neglected.
It doesn’t have any give or movement and due to the fact that its built into the shorts I find myself fighting to keep my junk in a comfortable place while trying to allow the shorts to move as I work out.
The cut at the front just feels restrictive and for me goes against what a jock is fundamentally for which is “support”.
The rear of the shorts however have everything you could want, the shorts sit where they should and the straps lift and support the butt.
All in all not an uncomfortable pair of shorts but a good concept in the main… the consideration of what’s inside is what lets this item down.
Comfort aside these shorts have definitely achieved the occasional glance in the gym and that’s always a plus point and they aren’t a bad item for summer time fun.
