I believe the need exists for men's underwear that is both comfortable and functional. After many disappointments I developed my own.

About this project

New Goal: $10,000.00

Update (3/26) Thank you very much to all of my backers for your support of my project and helping me surpass my initial goal. My new goal is to offer an even higher quality fabric blend.  I would like to use a TENCEL fabric blend for all sizes, styles, & colors. TENCEL fabric is eco-friendly, softer than silk, has superior moisture control, and is naturally antibacterial.  Please help me spread the word so all of us will be able to enjoy the benefits!

After years of trying countless brands and styles of underwear and being disappointed with the fit and ease of use, I decided to design a new option.  My background is in economics & finance, so I had to learn a lot about sewing, fabric types, & digital pattern making among other things.  I went through many designs and prototypes before achieving my goal & now I'd like your help to bring it into production.  As a reward I am offering my design at about 20% below market value and an additional price cut for Early Birds!!!

Styles of brief, trunk, & boxer brief.  The leg of the boxer brief is 2 inches longer than the leg of the trunk.

Color choices currently available:

My first samples with a logo waistband are shown below.  I'm still working with manufacturers to perfect the logo and other minor details, but wanted to give a visual representation of my most current samples.

It's my goal to have these produced in the USA.  To have them produced in the USA I will need to order larger quantities (200 per style (3) per size (4) for a total of 2,400 pairs minimum).  If I reach only my minimum goal I will be forced to have the manufacturing done outside of the USA.  I've scoured the internet and found factories in the USA that were in the process of closing, have recently closed but still have an active website, and a few that are still open for business in California that generally deal with larger customers.  If you know of any factories in the USA that are willing and capable of this type of work in small quantities PLEASE contact me!!!

Risks and challenges

I'm very confident in the project. I've worked diligently to perfect the design and have been working with suppliers to make sure the product they supply is of the highest quality.

Set backs are always a possibility. I have worked to get the project to a point where the biggest potential issue will be packing and shipping the product. Luckily, I have a great network of friends and family that are willing to assist.
