So:Be it: Garçon Model

See also

Back in December of 2013, I proclaimed that the Garçon Model approach to crowdfunding and product design for its Spring 2014 collection could very well be the future of small batch, customer-driven production. Well, the future is now. The campaign was successfully funded in short order and raised $26,464.

Instead of using Kickstarter to simply raise money, Garçon Model also used the crowdfunding platform to start a discussion with its backers which would ultimately help steer the direction of its forthcoming collection. Despite the potential risk of relying on public opinion, which can be terribly fickle at times, the campaign appears to have been nothing short of an unmitigated success. The So:Be Trunk is one of the results of the campaign and conversation, and it looks downright amazing.

Garçon Model uses a blend of 82% nylon microfiber and 18% elastane which gives it the opportunity to produce intense colors that won’t fade and provide a form-hugging fit that is both supportive and sexy. One look at the So:Be Trunk and you’ll see what I mean. The hot pink is the pinkest of pinks, and the electric blue is positively eye-popping.

In addition to the bold colors and religion-revealing fit, the Garçon Model So:Be Trunk is also made to be functional and comfortable. It features a super soft, two-tone waistband, tagless tag, and the microfiber material helps wick sweat away to keep the nether region nice and dry. One bonus feature that is unique to the trunk is its U-shaped pouch (see slideshow for details) which looks to be as supportive as it is package enhancing. Of course, you’ll have to check back later for the review to find out how the underwear and its magic pouch performed.
