It's not a secret that artists, writers, musicians, and other creative bums have their most genius moments while at home in their underwear. Sleepy Jones, a new brand full of undergarments and pajamas, wants to bring that experience to every guy — and make us look a little better in the process. Created by Andy Spade (the guy that made all that Jack Spade stuff you've bought over the years) and the design studio Partners & Spade, this comfortably classic line includes USA-made boxers ($28-$84) and PJ's ($128-$142), as well as some stripe-tastic socks ($24). As Andy and the team at Sleepy Jones told us, it's "the perfect uniform for reading, writing, painting, pondering, and playing."
Let's face it: no one likes bargain-basement underwear, but unfortunately, there aren't really any premium brands that craft their wares here in the U.S. Flint & Tinder Underwear ($15) is looking to change that. Fully funded on Kickstarter, this new brand will be made with pride here in the States, from premium, domestically-sourced materials, using innovative designs, and built with reinforced stitching for added durability. As a bonus, for every 1,000 pairs they sell a month, another job will be added to the assembly line — so you'll be helping to rebuild our economy, one pair of boxer briefs at a time.
You can never bee too safe when traveling to unfamiliar regions. These Scottevest Travel Boxers ($20) feature dedicated iPhone and passport pockets — the better to keep them safe during your adventures — as well as more normal features, such as a button fly, anti-microbial odor- and stain-resistant treatment, and Nylon and Lycra construction that allows them to dry quickly, hopefully helping to avoid the dreaded "swamp ass".
