The holidays are fast approaching - and once you’ve hit a certain age there’s really only a few gifts that you actually need: new socks and underwear.
Yes - although we used to begrudgingly moan as we unwrapped a fresh pair of underclothes from our Christmas stocking, underwear is now one of the holiday gifts that truly incites feelings of joy.
Saxx Underwear has established themselves as one of the most popular brands of boxers on the internet. With a focus on comfort, the brand’s Ballpark Pouch (yes, that’s really what it’s called) helps reduce friction for “chafe free comfort” thanks to strategically placed, breathable mesh panels and moisture wicking material.
Ahead of the holidays, Saxx has risen in the ranks as one of Amazon Canada’s most popular products - taking up prime real estate on the mega-retailer’s Movers & Shakers list. Even better? Saxx’s Boxer Brief Vibe Men’s Underwear is on sale for 40% off.
Why invest in Saxx?
Although Saxx are more expensive than your average pair of briefs, they’ve been created with the male form in mind. Each pair of Saxx are designed to deliver the maximum amount of support possible. The brand’s Three-D Fit contains nine ergonomic panel design for more support around glutes, thighs, quads and hamstrings than the average pair of briefs of boxer-briefs.
What people are saying
Saxx has gained a cult-following thanks to their focus on fit and all-day comfort. The brand’s briefs have earned an impressive 4.7 out of 5 star rating based on more than 800 customer reviews.
“It fits great and warm! And the ‘package area’ is very comfy!” wrote one Amazon shopper. “It's the most expensive underwear I ever bought, but it is worth it.”
“The price of Saxx items does seem high, but they are long lasting, and they eliminate chafing,” another said. “They come in several fit styles...the pocket is the right size and the fit is good. There is a smaller amount of ‘shorts’ length than a typical boxer would have... It's a snug boxer/brief style which looks attractive, and has a pocket for the plums. If you couldn't go on a 3 hour walk in the heat without pain before, you can now.”
To buy or not to buy?
You can’t put a price on comfort - and if you or the man in your life has had issues with chafing and fit, Saxx may just be the perfect solution. Saxx shoppers are usually hooked after just one pair - and with tons of fun prints and styles to choose from, they make the perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays.
