I wish there was a Men's version of a Victoria Secret. This is because when I am shopping for my husband's underwear, I can only find one brand that fits he needs. He prefers cotton, poplin with a fabric covered waistband. Sure, there are many brands that offer uncovered waistbands with exposed elastic. The exposed elastic causes skin irritation and it doesn't breath. It appears in the last 10 years manufacturers cut costs by eliminating a covered waistband. It lowers cost because you use less fabric and detail. I think they need to bring back covered waistbands for men.
I have never understood why men's underwear so expensive. Perhaps it is because Ralph Lauren is the only one not skimping on fabric. This is the only brand I have been able to find where the elastic is covered. It is no joke that I spend $28.00 for one pair. Unless I am able to find it on clearance for $19.99. Imagine buying a weeks worth of new underwear and spending $200.00 plus tax.
I have looked online and only a few manufacturers I have found offer something close to my husband's needs.
Below: are a few sites you can try...
- Mack Weldon makes a woven poplin with 2% stretch for comfort. https://www.mackweldon.com/t/underwear
