While we turn our focus to all things Pop Culture here at Modern Man, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include style as a part of that. So much of what we wear says a lot of who we are as guys in our 40s and how we’re affected by the world around us. What we see. What we watch. What we do. How we shop.
Our new friends at Chill Boys reached out and sent Jon and myself a couple pairs of their boxers. I’m going to chime in at the end with a few thoughts, but Jon came through with a great write up and I share that with you all now. Enjoy!
Underwear is an easy purchase. You’re in the store and you remember you’ve thrown away a few worn-out pairs lately, or maybe laundry day keeps creeping up sooner and sooner, so you buy a few new pairs to restock the drawer. Most guys are loyal; we find a brand and stick to it, whatever makes us comfortable and does the job. I’m a boxer briefs guy; I like everything stationary, especially while exercising, with the style of the longer boxer look.
Our new friends sent us two new pairs of boxers from Chill Boys and I was definitely impressed.
I kinda didn’t know I needed boxers like this. I tried the Soft Bamboo boxers (90% soft bamboo fiber / 10% Spandex) and the Breathable Performance boxers (90% high-performance Micro-Mesh Poly / 10% Lycra).
First impressions with the Bamboo pair was that there was nothing there – quite liberating, actually, like going commando, but luxurious. The roomy light fabric slid under a pair of jeans and disappeared. No itchy tag and was comfortable to wear all day with almost a cooling sensation, while giving me that “globally conscious” piece of mind, too. Did you know that bamboo can grow up to 3 feet a day? News to me.
The Breathable Performance pair were great, too.
Didn’t have the same cooling sensation as the Bamboo’s, even despite the mesh holes, but this pair was really comfy all the same. Now, I’m not a muscle-bound type. I run and lift often enough to tone up, but my body type runs thin.
Like most boxers, these Breathable Performance boxers had a ton of room in them, lots of comfort, also disappearing when you’re wearing them. I may still opt for the boxer-briefs for a workout, but these performance boxers are great!
Also, rest assured, Chill Boys waist sizing is quite accurate.
I’d definitely buy this brand again and plan on trying their Soft Stretch, Quick-Dry Boxer Briefs, too. Wonder if they’re planning to do boxer briefs with bamboo…
Keith here again, I gotta tell ya – as a bigger guy – I had a lot of the same reactions. They totally feel like they disappear when you wear them. And the big sizes are right on too. That’s not usually the case for those of us with the Xs in front of our sizes – but I was very happily surprised.
From a pure marketing stand point – I LOVE the packaging and the way they present their products.
They even threw in a Chill Boys can koozie which I rocked last night enjoying a cold beverage during the Super Bowl.
Jon and I both highly recommend Chill Boys and can’t wait to try out more of their amazing products. When you go to place your order, make sure you tell them that the Modern Man sent ya!
