I have known about Shrine Boxers for almost a year. Rob, the owner came to Vegas and one of our Meet and Greets. The first thing I noticed was he was taller than I was, and I”m 6’4”. The next thing was he started a underwear company. He told me why he started the company (see the Kickstarter post). He really impressed me!
In a recent call he brought up my interview about how “I hate boxer briefs” and said when theirs comes out it will change my mind. Those are big claims. But, I decided to go into it with an open mind! The pairs came in the mail and the first thing that I liked was the quality. The fabric was very well made and perfect for working out or being active. I wore these to work in a very hectic and busy day.
I did everything form sit at the desk, run up and down stairs to being super active that day. Other Boxer Briefs I have had got very hot and uncomfortable during the day. This pair breathed and felt great. Its like they made it for super active guys. I will say it really impressed me on how well it did. The pair didn’t ride up in the legs. Which is another pet peeve of boxer briefs. They stayed in place and didn’t bunch. So score another point.
My one are alf concern was the pouch. They didn’t have a defined pouch as I would like. So from the time I put them on I worried about them loosing shape and me being uncomfortable. Granted the pouch didn’t stay 100% perfect for me but it wasn’t one where I wanted to take them off half way through the day.
Sizing with a new brand is never easy. You don’t know if the size guide is correct. I”m about a 38/40 currently and the XL fit me pretty well. I don’t see a copy of their size chart on their page yet. The line should be released soon and we will add them to our size guide! But it should be pretty standard shipping
Overall these were very good boxer briefs. Did it change my mind, well I won’t say I’m a super huge fan but I will be wearing these more than a lot of other boxer briefs. They are perfect for a busy day and will breath with you. I am really impressed
