- Mack Weldon makes
underwearand clothing for men hold up superbly well over time.
- I've had three pairs of its boxer briefs for more than two years each and all are still in great shape despite regular wear and washings.
- The brand's AIRKNIKTx underwear is supportive for athletic wear yet doesn't feel constricting, while the company's jersey boxer brief is perfect for sleeping or lounging.
While all of my Mack Weldon boxers are excellent overall, they each have their own qualities, so let's break things down pair by pair.
The fabric blend (50% polyamide, 33% polyester, and 17% elastane) offers plenty of stretch and wicks sweat well, and the legs never bunch up with these boxers, which is much appreciated when I'm stepping into a meeting, in a shop, walking down a city street, or anywhere else where adjustments might be awkward.
As with the Jersey boxers, because these boxer briefs are largely cotton, I don't recommend them for use during any intense exercise, as they just don't breathe as well as synthetic (or wool) fibers. On the other hand, these have a closer fit than the Jersey boxers, and they won't ride up your leg. Because these boxers feature antimicrobial Silver XT2 fiber, they prevent bacteria and odor build up, making them a great choice for extra-long wear, especially during travel.
Cons to consider
While hardly a bank-breaking price point, Mack Weldon's underwear is more expensive than options you'll find from myriad other brands. If you want to find decent boxer briefs for cheaper, consider a three-pack from Calvin Klein for $30.On the other hand, if you don't mind paying a good deal for your boxer briefs and you want a pair with some unique support and anti-chafe features, you can consider SAXX, which offers boxer briefs with a unique "BallPark Pouch."
Also, watch out for a bit of ride up with the Jersey boxers, but you can avoid that by wearing them with looser pants and not wearing them for workouts.
The bottom line
Mack Weldon boxer briefs have just the right fit. Each pair I have offers enough support to keep things in place but without making me feel constricted and without causing excess heat buildup.As noted earlier, my three pairs of Mack Weldon boxer briefs have been in the regular rotation for more than two years now, and that means dozens and dozens of wash and dry cycles. Their colors have held, they're still stretchy and supportive, and they still grip my body evenly and don't bunch up or create lines visible through pants.
