H&M men’s underwear has come a long way the last couple of years. Yesterday I visited our local H&M store and I was pleasantly surprised by how the Swedish clothing store had evolved their men’s underwear line.
I actually own a few pair of H&M boxer briefs that I got on a vacation to Portugal last year, and you know, they’re still in my underwear drawer. This in spite of the fact that, just as all their clothes, H&M mens underwear sells at discount prices, which (usually) indicates low quality and creativity.
H&M has a growing number of stores all over the west- and east coast of the US as well as the rest of the world. So the chances of you passing one of the them are greater than you might think.
Now, if you’re still not sure that H&M men’s underwear is something for you, do go on reading. I’ve got three compelling reasons why I think this underwear label ain’t half bad.
1. Use discount underwear to diversify your underwear drawer
Having a preferred discount underwear brand, that you know won’t let you down, opens up a lot of opportunities for guys with tight budgets.
You can easily get a 3-pack of H&M men’s underwear, like the cotton boxer briefs on the picture to the left, for around $20.
This means that you can get a lot different underwear styles, cuts, and designs for next to nothing. And in these troublesome financial times, this option may appeal to a lot of guys.
I would not recommend, though, that you go entirely for discount underwear. Rather, you should think like this: Instead of getting three pairs of boxer briefs at $15-20 a pair, get an H&M 3-pack at $20 and one great pair of stylish, quality underwear which usually sets you back $25-40.
In this way you will have diversified your underwear drawer so that you have something (affordable) to wear for your everyday purposes as well a few pairs of high-end, quality underwear for those special occasions.
In my experience, when it comes to men’s underwear, price and quality usually go hand in hand. And to some extend this is also the case with H&M underwear. Don’t expect it to match brands like Bon Bon, Calvin Klein, or Aussiebum.
That said, H&M men’s underwear is surprisingly good quality. I still have the (95 % cotton, 5 % Elastane) boxer briefs that I bought last summer, and they haven’t lost too much stretch, fit, or color since then.
This is testament to proper manufacturing quality and the obvious advantages of economy of scale enjoyed by mega clothing chains like H&M.
3. H&M = Fun designs
One final thing you guys need to consider when thinking about getting a pair of H&M underwear is the abundance of fun designs and patterns.
Usually, low-end underwear brands do not focus on design besides traditional black and white solid colors. H&M, on the other hand, has a growing selection of colors, patters, and print designs.
Wearing a pair of H&Ms will have you looking fun and interesting in changing rooms, bedrooms, and any other room you may be wearing them in :)
