Durable boxer shorts
A brief history of men's underwear
No two pairs of boxer shorts are the same. The days when there was only one type of underwear are long gone. But not everyone can remember underpants only being available in one style and one colour: white, and let's not even mention the design. Let's put it this way: they weren't particularly flattering. Apparently men didn't feel the need to bother with their underwear. Because nobody could see it anyway, so why would you? Besides, the underwear did exactly what it said on the tin. Our thoughts on this have changed somewhat since. Not only is the colour or style important, but we also want to know whether the boxer shorts are sustainable.
The boxer shorts revolution
But first, let's go back in time a little. Because slowly but surely, there came what we will call a “revolution” here for the sake of convenience, although it wasn't that intense, in the preference for men's underwear. Tentatively, the traditional underpants became available in other colours. With the liberation of World War II, American troops entered Europe. And they brought “their” underwear with them. At the time, everything from America was good and more importantly: modern. Because that's where new products came from; from the microwave to the dishwasher, you name it. Men's conservative preferences began to give way to the American underpants, what we now call the classic style: loose fitting, loose legs. Hardly any “support”, but to each their own. Let it all hang loose.
More choice in men's boxer shorts
The old-fashioned underpants were still available (still are, by the way), when the American boxers made their appearance. But the developments did not stop there. Men liked the boxer shorts with the longer legs, but the need for boxer shorts that offered better support grew. And that brings us to the current style of tighter boxer shorts. And there are many variations of that style.
The rise of durable boxer shorts
The tighter fitting boxer shorts, which, thanks to the design, offer more support where you want it, are of course also available in all shapes and sizes. Speaking of choice overload ... Different colours, different sizes, different finishes, and perhaps most importantly, different fabrics. And the latter is an important one because boxer shorts (and the entire textile industry) also have to deal with the important requirement of sustainability. Durable boxer shorts have everything to do with the fabric used. Where does that fabric come from, how is the fabric processed, what is the production process, etc. All topics that influence the sustainability of boxer shorts. As you know, Undiemeister®️ has opted for sustainable Mellowood®️ fabric, creating one of the most duarble boxer shorts.
