Everything comes as a subscription now. Of Streaming TV at Xbox Game Pass at the food and wine, you can set and forget just about everything for regular delivery to your door. But underwear?
I’m the type of guy who orders underwear in big batches, wears it until it falls apart, then comes out and does it again. But as the underwear subscription boxes became more popular, I became intrigued: is this actually a useful way to restock your drawers, or are they just a way to keep your drawers stocked? to suck up your bank account with an automatic subscription?
Okay, maybe it’s a bit of both, but most let you set the cadence so you’re not overloaded with underpants, or skip an expedition if you need to. And some even allow you to try out different brands and styles while sticking to a general framework you set out, like “no briefs” or “solid colors only”. And, of course, you can undo when you have enough pairs. With a few reminders neatly placed on your calendar, a subscription box can be a great way to keep your underwear drawer fresh, especially if you have a partner who is tired of looking at the same dingy things every time you go. you mess.
In terms of selection, Underwear expert was leading the pack in the services I tested. When you sign up, you go through an assistant who asks you a number of questions about your style, ranging from what type of underwear you like (from thongs and jockstraps to boxers and boxers) to a little “taste quiz” where you choose your favorite underwear from a series of images, which will help you determine what kind of styles and patterns you get. You can then select a cadence from every month to every three months, with one to three pairs per box, with the option to choose specific pairs or let Underwear Expert choose for you.
Underwear Expert has its own brands in-house, as well as a number of other brands in its catalog (some of which are brands that have specifically partnered with Underwear Expert for exclusive offers). This means you can find some variety of fit and finish, but I found every item in my box to be of good quality and quite comfortable.
The price ranges from $ 26 per month (for a pair in a box) to $ 70 (for three pairs) – with a free pair for your first month if you go for two or three pairs per box. And obviously, if you stagger your mailings, you’ll only be billed for the months you actually receive a box. You can also shop their store separately, if you are not looking to subscribe, although a subscription is better value, as some styles are more expensive than the price of a monthly pair.
Great quality from a beloved brand: Position
Ask about the best brands of socks, and someone will almost certainly mention Position. But they also make underwear, with subscription options for both. As a longtime fan of their socks, I had high expectations for Stance’s underwear, and they didn’t disappoint, with plenty of styles to choose from (both plain and patterned) in three. fabrics. They only offer boxers and briefs, but the latter has an option for Stance’s ‘Wholester’ style, which adds a few flaps surrounding your junk to rock everything in glorious comfort. Stance isn’t the only underwear brand I’ve seen doing this, but it’s one of the few on this list that offers it as a subscription, and after using it it’s hard. to return to normal underwear.
Stance’s underwear subscription costs $ 19 per month for a pair, up to $ 57 for three pairs, and you can subscribe monthly or quarterly, or shop directly from their store (but with higher prices).
Sexy on a subscription: Daily jocks
Daily jocks is almost in a category of its own. Unlike the other subscriptions on this list, which primarily focus on underwear (and maybe a category or two), Daily Jocks offers underwear, sportswear, swimwear, resort wear. and fetish clothing, with a sex toy store to boot. Its marketing is aimed more at gay people, but straight people can still find a lot to like here, especially if you’re looking for something that shows a little more. They offer a solid selection of trunks, briefs and jockstraps from a few different brands, all of which felt sturdy and high quality. Their sign-up process is intermediate in terms of detail, with a few ways to determine what style you get, and a first preference / second range of preferences that works well as a fallback if something goes out of stock.
The service costs $ 24 per month for a pair, and you can have underwear shipped once a month or two, with 50% off your first shipment. You can also shop their store separately, if you do not wish to subscribe.
Motives galore: MeUndies
If you’re looking for underwear subscriptions, you’ve probably heard of it before. MeUndies, which played an important role in popularizing the concept. Their men’s subscription offers a number of styles, including boxer shorts (with or without fly), leggings, boxers, boxers, and briefs, which come in a very soft and comfortable fabric. MeUndies also offers a few different designs, although they mostly focus on solid, fun imagery (martinis, surfboards, that sort of thing) with just a few stripes and plaids to complete the selection. They also offer more sizes than most of the services we reviewed, from small to XXXXL, and you can even add your partner to your membership to get matching underwear.
MeUndies is one of the more affordable subscriptions we’ve reviewed, starting at just $ 16 per month for a pair. You can shop their store separately, but you’ll pay a lot less with a subscription.
All underwear: Basic man
While many stores listed here offer clothing beyond just underwear, Basic man is specifically designed around the subscription to the entire package: a pair of underwear, a pair of socks and a t-shirt, once a month. As the name suggests, you get all the basics – even if they don’t line up with different designs, all of the items are done right. The underwear in particular uses memes for the inside of the fly and the gusset, which is great for keeping things cool. The selection was the smallest of the bunch, but it seems to be by design: if all you want is the basics done right, Basic Man is a fantastic choice.
The Basic Man subscription costs $ 25 per month, but you can get discounts for prepaying in advance. To purchase specific items instead, you can go directly to their store.
A wacky hammock for your waste: Shiny
Shinesty The mission, as they say, is to “bring you the most extravagant clothing collection the world has ever seen”, from suits and swimsuits to ski suits and accessories, with many themes available. . Their underwear subscription, available for matching men, women or couples, is certainly in line with that, offering a number of silly styles and unconventional designs. Other than that, however, their underwear stands out with the “ball hammock,” a piece of fabric designed to support your boys and keep them from sticking to your legs. It’s similar to Stance’s Wholester, but instead of two pieces of fabric on the sides it’s a big bang along the bottom – it keeps your bag more insulated, but in my experience it’s also more prone to drop them completely. While this could be because the underwear was a bit chunky on me, so it might be more ideal for those who sit between sizes.
Shinesty only offers a once-per-month subscription, billed quarterly at $ 45 or annually at $ 160. This works out to around $ 13-15 per month, which is very affordable compared to the others we’ve tested, although more limiting since you agree to a number of shipments. If you would like to try the ball hammock before registering, you can purchase individual pairs in their store.
