There are so many amazing underwear manufacturers coming out of Australia.  I was extremely curious and excited to have an opportunity to evaluate a recent boxer brief released by SLY Underwear.  To add some context around SLY, the company focuses on three primary themes for their underwear; work, play, and rest.  The intent is to offer underwear to fit your lifestyle and therefore accommodate the needs of hard working, party loving guys that also appreciate quality and comfort.

This particular pair titled “picnic green” falls within their work category due to the construction and fit of the boxer.  The classic boxer brief is designed to help prevent the boxer from riding up and is accomplished by adding elastic around the leg.  The materials consist of a 9% cotton and 5% elastane blend along with a nylon/elastane waistband.

As shown in the picture, the print is a two toned lattice green design, which is perfect for spring.  I’ll have to say…I’m not a fan of the mint green color, which reminds me on of the linoleum tile in my grandmother’s kitchen.  Honestly, they should have taken this to a darker color as I don’t see too many guy…straight or gay…appreciating this particular shade.  Perhaps a different primary color like blue, black, or red would have worked much better.  Another feature includes a pocket on the right leg, but I fail to see the practicality of incorporating this on any underwear.  After all, how many guys do you know sport a condom or iPod on the outside of their underwear?

These are extremely comfortable, however, well-constructed and provide a high quality of materials and definitely represent high end, fashionable underwear.  I wore these all day and not once found them uncomfortable or even realized I was wearing a boxer brief.  While I’m not excited about the design, I was impressed by their website and would encourage you to check it out for their latest styles and designs as they have a lot to offer.

As an admirer of art, I’ve always appreciated the role that underwear has played in men’s fashion. For me personally, underwear serves as a catalyst for allowing men to present their style and fashion sense while remaining masculine and true to themselves. Since fashion is an expression of oneself, this allows men to do so privately, intimately and socially….it’s the best of all worlds!
