This review will be shorter than my previous one about my Urban Star Jeans, for the simple reason that there is less to say. I’ve been wearing Kirkland Signature Cotton Stretch Fabric Boxer Briefs for a long time, and they are, by far, the best quality underwear I’ve ever bought, owned or used.
I thought about writing a review for them as I was recently moved to renew my stock of boxers, something that happens periodically.
I purchased this pack of 4 Kirkland Signature Boxer Briefs at Costco, where else, for the price of $11.99, plus applicable taxes, which means that each pair of boxers costs $2.99.
There are several reasons why these are my favorite underwear. First of all, they are extremely durable. Not only is the fabric itself very though and resistant, the elastic waistband is very durable and will keep its stretching power through countless washes and many weight loss and weight gains.
Secondly, they are incredibly comfortable. This is based on several factors. The fabric itself is 95% cotton and 5% Spandex, meaning that it is quite stretchy, yet soft and warm. The cut is form-fitting and supportive, and the lack of labels and flat seams greatly contribute to a chaffing-free boxer experience.
I often need to walk a lot for my job – sometimes as much as 10 to 15 miles a day as counted by my cellphone – and when I do, I always make sure I am wearing the Kirkland Signature Boxer Briefs, as they are my only underwear that will not ride up, or down, under this constant movement. This means much less possibility of chaffing and a generally much more pleasant experience.
I know that the old ‘boxers or briefs’ question is quite existential. I find loose boxers very uncomfortable, but that’s just me. I find that the Kirkland Signature Cotton Stretch Fabric Cotton Boxer Briefs offer some of the very best value at Costco. You can get years of comfort for $11.99, or 3 bucks a boxer brief. That’s hard to beat.
