Project 5 logoa350b6485125e40532bafac157a5ca5f_largeWhile I was doing my daily scroll of Facebook in July, I came across a very exciting notion.  Great quality underwear at an amazing price.  That’s right readers, quality underwear for the budget of every man.  Some of you who immerse yourselves in the underwear world as much as I do may have stumbled upon this miracle much as i did.  Who are these crazy folks?  They call themselves quite simply, Project 5.  I used my great deductive reasoning skills to figure out that they call themselves Project 5 because they intend to sell EVERY pair they make for $5.  I immediately added my email to their update list so that I can stay on top of their progress.  I also reached out to the manufacturer to get the skinny on their crazy idea of selling underwear at such an amazing price.  How do they do it you ask?  Well I’ll tell you.

I got a great response from Jose at Project 5 and he filled me in the on plan.  In his email to me he spoke very highly of his desire to provide great quality underwear at a great price.  Jose said, “Quality is going to be great and the price you can’t beat.”  Project 5 has already created another successful line of underwear and it’s this relationship with the manufacturer that allows them to keep costs down.  During a $5 sale of their current line they sold out and thus the concept was born.  Project 5 underwear will be successful I’m sure of it.

Project 5 underwear will be available to suit all underwear tastes.  Briefs and boxer briefs will be the main offerings in their line up.  I have not seen much of the colors yet, but on their launch page they showed a glimpse of the colors and they look very stylish and fun.  They have focused much on their waistband.  I like the twist on the letter “p” and the number “5” in the the logo.  It looks like a superhero’s logo.  Succeeding at this venture will undoubtedly make them a superhero to many underwear lovers.  Project 5 will use a wide range of materials to make sure that their comfort extends beyond the wallet to the butt of the wearer.  Cotton/spandex blends as well as nylon, modal, and polyester will ensure that each pair is made to the highest quality and comfort.  I am sure that as they grow more and more materials will be used and consistently maintain affordable prices.  The size chart for Project 5 is standard sizing for American manufacturers.  Since I have not gotten my hands on them yet, I will stick to my usual size plan.  Briefs I’ll get medium and trunks I’ll get small.  The figures I see on the chart make me think that my sizing plan will hold true.  I am eagerly awaiting some samples to test out and also to share with the other writers here at UNB and get more opinions.

How would you like to get an early jump on getting your own pair of Project 5 underwear?  They are offering this unique opportunity through a Kickstarter project.  Late last week they put up a Kickstarter page where you can help them fund the project.  Your contribution to their goal will score you underwear, stickers, and even personal messages of thanks from Project 5.  Check out the Kickstarter page for a peek at the underwear here: I hope that you all get behind this great new concept.  My excitement for this new brand is overflowing.  Getting this brand to market will really give other underwear brands a run for their money.  I have always wondered why underwear has to be so expensive and Project 5 is my kind of company.  Check them out!!

    How awesome it this?!
    Glad I’m not the only one who thinks underwear prices are getting too high (and still climbing)!
