Archive for the ‘Naked Boxer Brief’ Category
A little while ago, we introduced you to a relatively new brand on the scene: Naked Boxer Brief. Spearheaded by Joel Primus, Naked presents a simple line of three styles: boxers, briefs, and boxer briefs ($44, $38, $42, respectively).
No doubt all of you have your favorite brands, of which you have many pairs. Some of you may even be afraid to try a new brand that appears on the scene out of fear that it’s not good enough. I am here to set you straight: sure, Naked is new, but the underwear it sells acts as if it has been around for years—a seasoned veteran in its field.
I had the pleasure of trying the boxer (which is much more like a long-legged boxer brief than a boxer) and the boxer brief. The first thing I noticed when I pulled them out of their elegant boxes was how incredibly light they felt in my hand. As I played with them, I noticed that the fabric was truly like nothing I had ever felt before; it was smooth like micro modal but stretchy like spandex. I decided that the Italian microfiber was amazing, and I hadn’t even put them on yet!
You may have read my introduction or visited Naked’s site and noticed the price. Of course, products with an above average price usually carry the image of an above average quality, but they don’t always live up to that image. Naked does. If this review boils down to anything, it would be that Naked underwear is one of the highest quality brands on the market today.
Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for that extra something to make it a special night (for both you and your partner!), look no further than Naked.
So, does the brand live up to its mantra that it “feels like you’re wearing nothing at all”? Read on to find out.
|Style and look||Naked takes the classy, minimalist approach to underwear. The three simple styles are offered in white (available only at Holt Renfrew in Canada) and black. Despite its extremely low-frills design, Naked manages (with ease) to be all-around sexy and extremely classy.
The microfiber hugs the body’s curves and creates a perfect silhouette, highlighting your two most important features. The crotch is a double-lined, fly-less design with plenty of room for your assets. Don’t worry, though; plenty of room doesn’t mean too much room- it’s just enough to fit everything while still giving your profile a little boost.
|Suitable for?||This may seem like a cop-out answer, but…anything. Let me explain. Naked underwear is extremely lightweight, which makes it good for everyday use. You don’t notice it under your clothes because it doesn’t pull or itch. Nor are there any tight waist or leg bands to constrict your blood flow.
The material is extremely breathable, which is perfect for the gym. Now, usually underwear that is good for both everyday use and the gym can’t be sexy, right? Right, but Naked isn’t very “usual.” Naked isn’t the skimpy kind of sexy, but its body-conscious design is great for days you feel you just might get lucky… like, say, Valentines Day?
|Fit and quality?||I wore a size S for a 29-inch waist and it fit like a glove (or a great pair of underwear). The knitted Italian microfiber is just stretchy enough to fit to your skin without being tight or itchy.
In terms of quality, you will find almost none better. Everything fits together perfectly. I haven’t tried every pair of underwear on the market, but out of all I have, Naked is in the top 1% with respect to quality. They really are that good.
|Is the price right?||There’s designer underwear and then there’s premium designer underwear. Naked is the latter, and premium usually carries a larger price tag. True, $44 is a bit steep—I’ll give you that—but when it comes to overall value, it’s worth it. Naked will last for a long time and keep you comfortable throughout.|
|Best thing about it?||The best thing about Naked underwear is just how amazingly comfortable it is. It almost made it hard to write a review because I didn’t feel anything. But that’s the point, right?|
|Overall grade||★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Some great things are coming out of Canada these days (think Bon Bon, for example), and Naked is one of them. Even though Naked may not have an eye-popping design or extra frills to catch your attention, it doesn’t need those things because it is an amazingly high quality product that does exactly what it says it will: it makes you feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.

Most of the times when underwear companies pop up on the scene, the story behind their creation is a mystery.
Who knows why brands choose the fabric and patterns or ascribe to the philosophies that they do? This is not the case with a new Canadian underwear company called Naked Boxer Brief.
See pictures of a bunch of their styles at the bottom of the post.
Founder Joel Primus was inspired by unique fabrics during a sojourn in South America to launch his own underwear line. As a competitor on Dragons’ Den (a Canadian reality TV show), Primus sought investment to fund his project. Unfortunately the Dragons rejected his idea, but Primus pushed on and roughly a year later, Naked launched its first line (read their full story).
The company’s name implies its design: underwear that feels like you’re not wearing anything. Made out of a knitted Italian microfiber free from chemicals, all of the styles (brief, boxer brief, and boxer) employ a seamless, tag-less, fitted design to provide their users with maximum comfort.
An interesting feature is the non-constricting waistband so the underwear almost fades into the skin: no extra spandex to get tight and itchy.
Naked is a new company (appearing on the scene only late last year), so their line is currently limited to the three styles mentioned in white (at Canadian retailer Holt Renfrew only) and black. They sell at many retail locations across Canada, but you can always buy straight from their website, nakedboxerbrief.com.
Each pair of these premium babies will set you back roughly $40, and although I haven’t personally had the chance to try them (be on the lookout for a review soon, though!), Joel and the gang at Naked seem to have created a great product that is most assuredly worth the money.
