Today I want to introduce a new brand on the men's underwear scene Skull & Bones. Founded in New York City this past December, the brand is built on the belief that they can make superior basics that are exciting, without charging the customer an arm and a leg.
Skull & Bones aims to fill a void in the underwear market -- combining a cross between premium, yet "edgy" and exciting underwear. Many brands are either luxury OR risqué, S&B aims to combine both to bring you high-quality basics. As they put it "we make basics that are anything but basic".
I'm told their team tested hundreds of fits and fabrics to produce an exceptional product. They landed on modal, supima cotton and a carbon fiber fabric depending on the line you choose.
Quick Verdict: I had the opportunity to sample a pair of the classic trunks, and I have to say I am impressed. Pulling them out of the package I was a bit skeptical about how they'd fit as the cut looked different than what I've seen before (and that's saying something coming from me, I've seen LOTS of undies). But to my surprise and delight they fit like a glove and conformed nicely to my body to highlight assets both up front and behind. The undies are really quite basic, but the attention to detail is there and sets them apart. These are not your run-of-the-mill three-pack basics, these are high-quality, wear on the first sex date to impress basics. My only real complaint about the brand is I wish there was more variety in colors and cuts. But I'm sure that will come as they progress. I'd love to see their take on briefs!
