The Pick: Hamilton and Hare’s knockout boxer shorts
The luxury British loungewear brand has pulled no punches with its slimline-tailored, triple-stitched, flat-fronted underwear
When Simon & Garfunkel, in their angsty ballad The Boxer, sang, “I’m laying out my winter clothes”, it’s unlikely they were talking about underwear. But there’s cold weather on the horizon — and, even if they didn’t have pants on their minds, you should be laying out some boxers of your own.
Luckily, we’ve found another double act you can rely on. British luxury loungewear designers Hamilton and Hare have pulled no punches in creating some of the comfiest boxer shorts we’ve ever pulled on. Slimline-tailored, triple-stitched and flat-fronted, these cotton twill smalls are big on style — and available now on the Gentleman’s Journal estore.
With its boxers, the British brand has reinvented humble underwear. The shorts feature an elasticated back and side panel to ensure a snug, comfortable fit throughout the day. The slimline cut ensures that your boxers won’t roll up your leg and thus no unsightly baggy bulges beneath your trousers. And the carefully placed side slit allows for total freedom of movement, without requiring wasteful excess material.
They’re delicately designed delicates. Finishing features include a single-button fly, complete with triple-stitch hole and natural corozo nut button, and touches of contrast fabric for added detailing.
But the real draw of these drawers can be found in their cotton construction. A 100% premium natural fabric, this two-ply twill will be breathable during summer — but also promises to give your wardrobe a warm foundation during winter. So move over Simon & Garfunkel; your boxer may be laying out his winter clothes, but we’re trusting Hamilton and Hare to provide us with ours.
