In the wake of Thanksgiving, I am so very thankful for moisture removing underwear. Have we ever been so comfortable? How thankful would the pilgrims have been, experiencing the breakthrough in underpants technology over the last few years? (I couldn’t imagine wearing those coarsely woven linens and wools). Under Armour, compression material, modern polyesters and next generation cottons. We live in amazing times.
So, I’m on Facebook the other day, skipping through pictures of pets from long ago friends to find sarcastic witty retro postcards that enrich my day. A well-placed ad of to the right catches my eye, “MACK WELDON – FOR DAILY WEAR”. It was a sharp looking logo, so I clicked it.
Mack Weldon sells 4 things: Underpants, undershirts, socks and T-Shirts. They claim “Cool zones” where you need it, better fits and softer material. The soft selection of colors and shades really look good too. With underpants starting at $19.50 and a pair of socks at $12.50, it’s a little pricey, but I am intrigued (I must admit I’ve paid more for both in the past). I order 1 pair of trunks, 1 pair of socks, and 1 undershirt for $66 (free shipping, but no discounts until you spend over $100. I searched for promo codes with no luck). I also tried to find a place to buy retail, but they only seem to buy direct at this time.
The one-size-fits-all socks are comfortable, not too tight, warm, but not too thick, and look good. I could go for more colors though. Also, I don’t have giant calves, but would love to see a sock that widens as it goes up. These aren’t tight by any means. They are similar to every other sock on the calf in the marketplace. I just have to believe, there are guys with bigger calves than me. Wouldn’t they find a reverse tapered sock comfortable too?
The material lives up to the hype. The underpants fit great and feel even better. Although I haven’t pushed my body to maximum temp, I haven’t felt sultry down in the “cool zones”. They really are soft and several notches above my previous faves. They currently sit at the top of my underpants heap as my new go-to pair.
The fitted undershirt is actually fitted. Everyone uses the word “fitted”, but they still leave lots of extra material. It’s tight, but not compression tight – similar feel to the underpants. I like it a lot!
I like what I see, and I’ll look for a sale and buy more.
but as always, the search continues for the perfect skivvies…
