Meet Five Bamboo. They’re an environmentally friendly apparel company based out of Seattle that offers a range of clothing made from…drum roll…organic bamboo! Why bamboo? Well, it’s a soft fabric that can be processed in a more environmentally sustainable way than cotton. And fortunately for us, Five Bamboo decided to take this fabric and use it for their Bamboxers line of men’s underwear.
For this review I tried the Bamboxer Briefs and the Bamboxers. Both are made from material that is 94% Nomo Clean Bamboo Lyocel and 6% Elastane (for a little stretch). I had never worn clothing made from bamboo before, so I was curious to see what it was like.
Bamboxer Briefs: This pair of underwear turned me into a fan of bamboo. I found them to be even more comfortable than cotton and I liked the idea that they were produced in a way that’s not harmful to the planet. They’re well-made, have a flattering cut and provide the right level of support all over. Because of the mid-thigh length, the legs can ride up somewhat, but this is typical of all boxer briefs. For the fan of the boxer brief style, you can’t go wrong with these.
A distinctive design element of Bamboxer Briefs is that they have side seams that curve diagonally up. This provides more of a contoured look and is indicative of the high level of thought that the designers took with these boxer briefs. Another cool aspect is that they’re available in 8 fun colors. For underwear that’s comfortable and practical enough to wear every day, this is a big plus. And finally, I should mention that they’re well-priced at just $17 a pair!
Bamboxers: Bamboxers are the roomier cousin of Bamboxer Briefs. They’re made with the same soft, comfortable fabric and have a length that goes down to about mid-thigh. They also have a button in the fly to make certain that it stays closed when you need it to be. Available in 9 colors and priced at $17, these are a great choice for fans of boxer-style underwear. Personally, I prefer to sleep in boxers, so these are a very welcome addition to my underwear drawer.
After wearing these two styles of underwear, I’m not only a fan of Five Bamboo, but also of bamboo fabric. I now hope that Five Bamboo will develop a trunk version of their underwear to round out the collection.
