I will start this off by saying that I never thought I would be doing a review for a boxer! If memory serves me correct I have only ever bought one pair in my life. Those were a solid white pair made out of Egyptian cotton, which got one wearing. Flash forward many years and on Twitter, we posted about another brand being sold in Selfridges in England and Hamilton & Hare sent us a message they are being sold there and are high quality boxers. That lead to them sending us a pair for review. Since I knew very few on the site would wear boxers, I decided to bite the bullet and do the review.
I hear many of out there turning out right now. But I hope you read this review. Hamilton & Hare is is some of the highest quality underwear I have ever owned. The materials and construction have been top notch. The pair arrived in a mesh bag, that is reusable, and a linen handkerchief. So right away they really impressed me. How many pairs of underwear do this type of packaging. The design is not your father’s boxers. These are fitted and aren’t baggy. Granted they don’t have a pouch which I like but they don’t let your business hang totally free. It’s a tighter boxer then I am used too. I put these on before bed and were going to use them more as lounge wear for a Sunday, but after wearing them, I decided to wear them for the day around the house. They really did fit well and at times i forgot I was wearing boxers!
These boxers really impressed me through out the day. They are more like shorts rather then boxers. The ones guys wear here in the states are baggy, bunch and let’s face it just plain ugly. I sear if I see one more sponge bob or cartoon boxers I”ll scream. As I said above these are for a serious boxer lover. The design is something that I really liked. it has elastic around the sides and two buttons at the top of the fly. It felt really good to wear. No this won’t receive the best rating but for a boxer, I was seriously impressed. I will wear these again. I could def see these under a suit.
I know many out there who read this blog would never consider boxers. I believe sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone and try something new. Whether that be a thong, boxer, bikini or trunk. We should all try other pairs. You maybe surprised what you find. These didn’t bunch like the other pair I had. They stayed in place and I was worried about the fly. Would two buttons be enough to hold everything in and it was. They really paid attention to the design and construction of these.
I would recommend these if you’re a boxer fan of any sort. If you have ever wanted to try boxers and step out side your comfort then spring for the quality and you won’t be disappointed.
