Chill Boys: Underwear and Hoodies

When you get an offer to sample some underwear, boxers, or pullovers, it’s awkward, yes, but also appealing. I mean, who doesn’t love new undies? The story behind this Minnesota-based company is that a group of guys was looking to improve on boxers and boxer briefs and chose eco-friendly bamboo for the fabric. Our versions were both sized medium (for my son) and large (for my husband). I stole my son’s sample while he’s away at college to sleep in and found the boxer briefs luxuriously plush. The bamboo base is what makes these breatheable briefs a step above the others out there, including another Midwestern company known for its underwear, Duluth Trading Company. My husband reports he’s completely happy with them and the stretchy but shape-holding hoodie as well. It’s difficult to stand out in the bamboo/sustainable apparel industry, but Chill Boys has a leg up on the competition. Boxers, $21.99; hoodie, $78; chillboys.com

We sampled these a few weeks ago in the heart of my husband’s Keto diet, and they are tasty and filling. $49.99 snack box; dmsnacks.com
