Just a few short months ago last summer I ordered two pairs of the Gigo Espejo G-string (Style ESPGS) just for fun. I got one pair in silver and one in black for $28 each (Hisroom). It has only been a few months since I bought these and already they are discontinued according to Hisroom. Well, I did buy these on a whim so I’m not put out by the fact that these are no longer available, however I find it odd that nearly every review I’ve put up thus far is now a discontinued product. What’s up with that? My only conclusion at this time would be that styles of men’s thongs come and go for whatever reason.
Similar to the Shine Thong 8505 by Pikante these have a beautiful shinny material that I like to refer to as super gay (not a pejorative term in the least and to the contrary many gay guys dress and groom quite well if you ask me). These undies remind me of those Underoos of the 1970s, I feel like a comic book super hero with these on. It’s a little silly, even for me. So, with that said I haven’t really found a regular spot for these other than my chest of drawers in my bedroom. I might put them on if I’m totally bored and/or feeling goofy. Seriously, though, I do like the tight look quite a lot, the styling is really great and the front package feels tight. This is a great design. I just had trouble getting past the shininess as ‘real’ underwear as well as having to handle (wash/dry) delicate material of a rather pricey pair of underwear.
About the fit: These fit tightly and seem to lack stretchiness (it was the same with the Pikante pair as well). The plus side of it would be great outlines and bulbous look in just the right areas – the hallmark of men’s thongs. And, you can’t beat the flashy metallic look!
Overall, Gigo’s stylish approach draws the eye making their designs worth a look. I will have to contact the manufacture to see if they will replace these with something similar.
