Full List of Men’s Underwear Made in the USA

Blade and Blue


Headquarters: San Francisco, CA

States manufacturing in: CA



Blade + Blue is incredibly dedicated to making its products in the USA (San Francisco, specifically). We spoke with the owner Peter Papas about what he loves most about making his products in the U.S.: “I choose to make products in the USA because it is very important for me to have a personal relationship with the people who are making products for Blade + Blue…I think the most important aspect is that we look out for each other. We can easily voice concerns, make sure both parties are treated fairly & there is a deeper sense of care that I can see in the finished product.”

Most boxers are saggy, but the Blade + Blue Boxer Shorts offer a slim and sleek fit that’s anything but typical with boxers. This product is made to hug right against your body but still allow you to move around freely. The boxer shorts are made of a mix of cotton and lycra, ensuring that they are breathable, but also making them flexible. They come in several different colors and are sized for an exact fit. They feature a dual button closure that gives you a slightly more customizable fit when putting them on. It’s worth noting that those with larger thigh muscles and a thin waist may have trouble getting them to fit properly.

The Heritage boxer briefs from Flint and Tinder are crafted to be supremely comfortable thanks to their brushed cotton construction.

They are available in sizes ranging from small to XXL and should fit most.

RibbedTee also educates you about their products, which is something they say that their customers love about them most. We spoke with the RibbedTee Founder, Mike Schwarz, on why he chooses to manufacture in the USA: “We’re committed to building long-term partnerships with our local Los Angeles-based manufacturing partners, who are in many cases family-run boutique businesses themselves. As we grow, they grow.”

Factors To Consider

Durability

Underwear, just like t-shirts or any other article of clothing, sees a lot of wear. Each time that you twist and turn you will be flexing and bunching up the material. Good men’s underwear should be made from a durable material that’s going to hold up well over time and won’t tear. We prefer cotton blended with spandex or other synthetic fibers, but you must also pay close attention to the stitching at the seams. Heavily stitched underwear holds up better over time. The best underwear doesn’t suffer from much piling after washing. Always pay attention to wash and dry directions for your underwear before caring for them to make them last as long as possible.

Comfort

Your underwear comes in contact with some of the most delicate parts of your body, so they should be comfortable. Underwear that’s made from soft materials like cotton or silk will feel best against your sensitive areas. We prefer cotton in this section as well for its soft feel while remaining durable and breathable, but some synthetic fabrics and fibers work well too.

Style

While you might not be showing off your underwear all the time (unlike your socks), chances are good that you still want them to look their best. Look for a nice snug fit that will conform to your body well. Make sure that you like the look of your underwear though, otherwise, you won’t want to wear it as much.

Breathable

Good underwear is highly breathable, which will help you remain comfortable during use. Synthetic fabrics like silk tend to trap moisture, which can lead to discomfort and bad smells over time. Highly breathable material like cotton is best to help you remain comfortable over time.

Size Selection

All of the American made brands above offer a good range of sizes to pick and choose from. Different men have different body shapes, and what fits you well might not fit your friend the same. Choosing underwear that’s going to fit your body as perfectly as possible will ensure enhanced comfort, which is why you should value size selection.

Value

Even top-quality underwear can’t be too expensive or you’ll never want to purchase it. Look at the value offered by the underwear when choosing to make sure you’re getting the best underwear for your money. Shopping for your spouse?
