Hey guys. With the holiday gift giving season rapidly approaching, let me introduce Nü – a cool brand that’s worthy enough to add to your Wish List. Nü is a Canadian company that offers several ranges of underwear, but maintains a primary focus on designing distinctive trunks/hipsters. And this is definitely something they do quite well.
For this review I sampled three of their styles:
“Get Nü” Bamboo Cropped Boxer: For those of you not familiar with bamboo fabric, you’re missing out on the high level of comfort it provides. These cropped boxers (trunks) are made from a fabric that’s 95% rayon from bamboo and 5% spandex. This material is soft; and once you wear it, you’ll want it.
They’re form-fitting, which provides support and a flattering look, but they’re not tight and don’t ride up. But another aspect that differentiates these trunks is the athletic design. I tried a black pair that has a black, gray and red vertical racing stripe on the right side. Also, there’s contrasting gray piping around the crotch and gray elastic at the leg openings. So the overall appearance is sporty and masculine.
“Nü York” Bamboo Short Boxer: These fun boxer briefs were inspired by the colors of New York City taxi cabs. They’re made from the same comfortable bamboo fabric as the “Get Nü” Bamboo Cropped Boxer, but offer different styling. The pair I tried is gray and has contrasting yellow and black piping and elastic. Also, the waistband has NÜ YORK written on the front.
“Nü Chic” Cropped Boxer with Knitted Elastic: These trunks/hipsters are the tuxedo of underwear. They look and feel expensive, attractive, and timelessly in style. Available in solid black, gray or blue, they offer a sleek appearance and provide comfortable support. Another cool aspect is that the waistband contains two small, square-shaped pieces of metal above the brand name. It’s a tasteful and unique way to add to the sophisticated appearance.

So, I wanted to share with you a little teaser for an upcoming review Jeff will be doing soon. And this is the time to listen up, boxer brief lovers.
It’s Canadian underwear brand, Nü – a brand we haven’t dealt with before here on GuysUnderwearBlog.com.
Nü underwear is mostly focused on boxer briefs, and since it’s been a while since we’ve reviewed a proper pair of boxer briefs this is a golden opportunity to revisit that category.
As a brand, Nü is a dinosaur in the world of men’s undies, having been around since 1989! We look forward to trying out the boxer briefs, especially due to the brand’s reputation as a maker of highly durable and resistant undies.

We can’t wait!
