REVIEW: Bend the Rules – Urban Crusade in Brown
I love it when UNB sends me brands that I don’t know much about. It allows me to broaden my underwear horizons further than they are. Bend the Rules is one such brand. When I found out that I was getting a pair of their Boxer Briefs, I immediately hit the internet to do a little research. I was very impressed with what I found.
Bend the Rules is a fairly new underwear company located in Beverly Hills, California. The company was founded by Markus Bender who is also their designer and CEO. Bend the Rules spent over a year perfecting the fabric they use in their underwear and you can surely tell. This is one of the most amazing fabrics I have felt. The fabric is called Tencel, a fiber that is 130% more absorbent then cotton. According to their website, it’s more breathable, antibacterial, and is a natural fiber that is ecologically sound for the environment. It really is the perfect fabric for undies. Markus is quoted on their website as saying, “You will find Bend the Rules to be the finest, most comfortable boxer briefs you have ever worn. You have my word on it!” That is a pretty big promise to stand behind…and they delivered!
When I first received my Bend the Rules Urban Crusade brown boxer briefs in size medium, they didn’t look like anything special. Sure, the print on the left thigh and the right butt cheek was pretty cool, and fun, and the rhinestone set in the middle of the pattern on the left thigh added a little extra “bling”, but it was the feel of the fabric that drew me in. The material is amazing and is so hard to describe. It is flexible and stays in place. The waistband and leg openings are wrapped in the same fabric, making them very comfortable and not too restrictive. The sizing was right on. The mediums fit me like they were made just for my body.
I have worn these boxer briefs a couple of times now, and can say they are defiantly a pair that will stay in my top drawer with the rest of my favorite undies. I have worn them all day at work and out for a quick jog afterwards. They were consistently amazing for both. The design isn’t geared to workout wear in my opinion, but if you forget your workout undies at home and this is all you have…you will be just fine!

You can purchase any of the Bend the Rules boxer briefs directly from their website. Remember – these are marketed at Luxury Apparel, so they are a little pricey. The reviewed boxer briefs retail for $72.00. Bend the Rules does have a lot of other boxer brief styles that range in price from $49.00 to $72.00. You can get these boxer briefs in size small (waist size 29) up to XXX-Large (waist size 46). While you are at their website, make sure you also check out their tees. Bend the Rules provided me with these boxer briefs to review.
