Why we love Boxers for men - A short note!

Did you know that the earliest usage of underwear dates back to almost 7000 years ago? Leather was used by prehistoric men to cover and protect their loins while going about their everyday activities. In ancient Egyptian art, pharaohs are depicted wearing loincloths.

The most comfortable boxers money can buy

There are a lot of different options when it comes to men's underwear, but there's a reason why printed boxers are the best. Boxers are a must-have in every man's underwear drawer. Boxers are fashionable, free-flowing, loose and, most importantly, they are as comfy as it gets! 

Bummer uses Micromodal® fabric which makes our boxers 5x softer than cotton, more skin-friendly, breathable, and super lightweight. Add a bit of personality to your boring undies with Bummer’s range of stylish printed boxers for men!

A Brief History

There are many legends associated with the origins of boxers and how they were first designed for soldiers going to war. While we don't advocate wearing your printed boxers to battle (unless you want to cause a pillow fight), we do think they're an important part of every man's wardrobe. 

A legend suggests that boxers were created for English troops during the Crimean War when they wanted something to wear under their uniforms. Something that was both comfortable and practical. Boxers became popular as leisurewear in America and England after the war. 

Modern boxer shorts are thought to have been designed in 1925 by Jacob Golomb, the founder of the Everlast boxing equipment company. They were created to provide boxers more support and comfort when training and competing. The loose fit also gave boxers more movement while delivering blows, which was crucial for the fighters.

Why Boxers are the best

1. They're comfortable

Boxers are roomy and don't have any tight elastic bands around the legs or waist, so they're much more comfortable to wear than briefs or boxer briefs. And because they're made from our Micromodal® fabric, they won't irritate your skin as some synthetic fabrics can.

2. They don't show through your clothes

If you wear tight jeans or slim-fit trousers, you might have to worry about your underwear lines showing through. That's not an issue with boxers - the loose fit means they don't cling to your clothes, so no one will know what you have on underneath.

3. Go-to comfort wear

When you need to slip into something comfy after a long day, boxers are the way to go. Boxers are reliably comfy and can be found in a number of designs and colours on Bummer. They are perfect if you seek mobility and comfort.

4. Boxers are Versatile

Boxers come in a ton of different styles and colours. At Bummer, you can find boxers in all sorts of different colours and patterns. Boxers are adaptable and go with almost any top, from shirts to inner vests, boxers are extremely versatile.
