REVIEW: Bone Wear Square Bijou Boxer
Bone Wear is yet another new brand I have recently added to my underwear drawer. It was a brand I had heard a lot about and had seen in promotional emails and featured in online stores, but I had never really been so intrigued to buy. When I found out I was getting a pair of their new Bijou boxers, I was very interested in giving this brand a try.
Bone Wear is located in South Africa and is their only international underwear company. They strive to bring “men a unique range of well designed and high quality underwear, gym wear, and swim wear made from the best fabrics.” They are right on with their philosophy. When I first looked at this pair of undies, the quality and fabric were the two things that stood out the most.
I received the square Bijou Boxer in a black sized medium to review. Simply looking at the pictures online, you wouldn’t think there is anything that sets this pair of boxer brief style undies apart from any other boxer brief. Once you get these in your hand, you can definitely tell these undies are special. The Bijou line gets its name from the type of spandex that Bone Wear uses its construction. Bone Wear wanted to make sure this cut, looking like a typical boxer brief or trunk, was a little looser fitting and offered in a wide range of colors. The Bijou fabric is some of the softest spandex material I have ever felt. I have reviewed my share of undies and have felt lots of different fabrics, but this is something everyone should experience. The boxer is well constructed with a contrasting white triple stitch on all the seams and a white logo waistband. The pouch is very roomy and the fabric is breathable, feeling great under jeans, gym shorts, or dress pants.
I have worn these multiple times, not only to work but to the gym and a night out on the town. They wore great no matter what test I threw at them. One thing I did enjoy is the fact that the loose fit still offered support without being restricting.
Overall, I really enjoyed these undies. They aren’t going to catch someone’s eye, but they will give you a lightweight comfortable fit.
You can purchase the Bijou boxer directly from Bone Wear’s website for about $32 USD. The Bijou style comes in a variety of colors and patterns. Colors include Black/White, Jade, Rust, White, and White/Black. They also come in a blue or red cartoon pattern.
