Last month, you got to learn what was on offer from the local underwear hero known as PACT. This San Francisco based company has been fighting the good fight right from the get-go, and the goods they produce are of the sort that make you want to talk about your socks and undies at dinner parties. Here’s why:
- Non-GMO cotton seeds
- Hand-picked, 100% organic cotton
- Grown & harvested by farmer run cooperatives
- Socks made in wind-powered factories
- Apparel factories run on energy from composted rice husks
- Every factory in their supply chain is GOTS certified - the highest environmental and social standards in the apparel industry
- Sweatshop-free manufacturing
- Eco-friendly, recyclable packaging
Now it’s time to take a peek at the underwear. The Saloon Print Trunk, with its subtle, vintage-inspired print is as handsome as it is comfortable. PACT has really figured out how to make a pair of underpants that does everything it should and nothing it shouldn’t with their trunk. With just a bit more coverage than a brief and the best pouch in the business, the PACT trunk provides a form-hugging fit that is completely smooth and non-restrictive and just the right amount of support to keep the goodies from making any kind of comfort-compromising escape.
The Pioneer Stripe Boxer Brief is a handsome alternative to the trunk that provides a bit more thigh coverage and a traditional brief-style fly for those who prefer that sort of thing. Out back, the Boxer Brief features a three-panel set up for a bit more room, which is good thing to consider if you are fortunate enough to a bit of junk in your trunk. Despite there being more material in general, this boxer brief fits snugly and stays smooth all over. Since it doesn’t have the magic pouch of the Trunk, it doesn’t provide the same kind of support, but not everybody wants that sort of thing.
