208: Mack Weldon Underwear: Boxer Brief+Trunk

A local whilst to the Ace Hotel lobby, Michael Isaacman passed me these One in box brief grey and another on trunk navy. Both each in their own little canvas bag. 

Material: Both underwears contain a fabric the companies 2 members, Michael and Brian, called '18 Hour Jersey', a cotton/lenzing modal/Lycra blend. It feel soft like jersey tee material, but finer like that of Nike/Adidas/UnderArmour technical fabric. The material breathed and absorbed very well throughout each day. Think of Uniqlo's airism underwear, but improved upon

Design: This is the gem of the company. A large part of the Why to buy. Once you try, you get joked, especially when the underwear becomes like a second skin. I preferred the boxer briefs I regard to the trunk. The boxer briefs extra length gave a little more support, but not being overly tight at the thighs and the waist. My balls felt secure. The gusseting at the bottom and upper back area are placed in high sweat areas. The stitching and assembly are top notch. 

Durability: I wore each pair brand new for at least a 24 hour period over the last two days. I've pissed many times and shat at least one per day. There doesn't seem to be any stains or smell or loose threads from use. I will have to use much more before I can be conclusive. I will say they last more than the 18 hours labelled as. 

Overall Value: They come in an array of colors. They come with a customer satisfaction guarantee to get the best fit for you. They use the same robots as Amazon for their shipping warehouse. Their price is fucking reasonable in relation to what they are doing in scale and startup.
