It’s the question on everybody’s mind — boxers or briefs? Now there’s a third choice. The Boxerkilt has arrived and we’re not quite sure how to feel about it. The brand’s new men’s undergarment launched at the end of June and coming to you from, of course, Scotland’s own Boxerkilt. It’s pretty revolutionary and inspired by a classic Scottish garment — the kilt.
“Most men prefer snugly fitting underwear rather than healthy boxer shorts, mainly because boxer shorts feel bulky and are prone to ride up and need adjustment, and around 5% of men regularly skip the underwear altogether, this is commonly known as “Going Commando” or “Free Balling” going commando is not a fashion statement, it is basic ergonomics with health benefits,” said a spokesperson for Boxerkilt in a release.
The Benefits of the Boxerkilt
Studies show that tight-fitting underwear is constricting for the male member and it creates a cool environment for…”low-hanging fruit” to stay cool. The release continues, “Testicles are designed to operate at temperatures more than three degrees lower than the steady 37 degrees of core body temperature, which is why they hang outside the body; this is nature’s way of protecting the sperm from being damaged by core body heat; however, wrapping them in two layers of elasticated cotton is not the best idea.”
The Boxerkilt has been designed to combine what men love about snug-fitting boxer briefs with the health benefits of going commando. The traditional Scottish garb is the inspiration for the Boxerkilt in that it the kilt renowned for being worn without anything underneath.
This undergarment is made from a “Coolwick” fabric, which is a 50/50 blend of bamboo and cotton. This means it’s exceptionally soft but is still durable and it’s great at wicking away any moisture.
