I recently checked out Me Undies’ women’s underwear subscription, and they offered to send along some men’s styles for review as well.
My statement about having a totally boring, basic underwear drawer is even more true for my husband. He only wears black or navy Hanes boxer briefs. My last foray into buying him something different was a total flop, so I wasn’t sure what he would think of Me Undies — especially the bold colors and patterns.
Men’s Boxer Brief in Midnight Jungle – $16 when you subscribe, regularly $24
We received three pairs of Boxer Briefs, two with a striped design in one in Midnight Jungle. We think Midnight Jungle is one of the featured monthly designs, but it’s not listed on the website as such.
Men’s Boxer Brief in American Stripes – $16 when you subscribe, regularly $24
Men’s Boxer Brief in Montauk and American Stripes – $16 when you subscribe, regularly $24
We both liked the colors in the striped designs, they felt bright but not over the top.
They also sent this mysterious announcement, which did leave me wondering. Maybe they are launching a tool to help you figure out which fit is best for you?
First impressions: The Boxer Briefs are made of the same fabric as the women’s styles I tried (gif from previous review). It’s super lightweight and stretchy! The hubs was also impressed that the waistbands were really “sturdy” feeling and don’t have that ‘rolling’ tendency that some elastic does.
He test drove a pair while we were out on a super hot and humid Friday night, and loved them so much that he started raving about them to a friend of ours completely unprompted. He may or may not have tried to show them off in public while I looked the other way and pretended we didn’t know each other.
He said the fit was spot-on (he wears a medium in Hanes, and a medium Me Undies as well) and the stretchy, lightweight fabric totally sold him. He agreed that at $16/month it was more than he’d normally spend on underwear, but said he’d definitely like to add a few more pairs to his underwear drawer.
As I mentioned in my previous review, Me Undies’ online tools make it easy to manage your subscription, allowing you to skip a month, update your style, select a new size, add a second subscription, or even cancel. This is always important to me with any subscription, especially for ‘essentials’ like this.
Verdict: At $16/month for the Men’s styles, MeUndies are definitely pricier than my husband’s usual fare. He was overall really impressed with how comfortable they were and said he wanted a few more pairs, even though they probably wouldn’t replace his entire underwear drawer. He preferred the striped patterns in the samples we received, echoing my sentiment that it would be awesome to preview the next month’s featured design and choose a solid color or basic pattern instead.
