MyPakage: Wrapping the Family Jewels in Style

I have the questionable good fortune of being married to the guy who actually cares about aesthetics and design. Although he might look like your average devil-may-care outdoorsy dude, Bob is MUCH pickier than I am. Case in point: the ongoing underwear dilemma.

Most of the women I know purchase their mates' unmentionables. Multipacks of tightey whiteys, novelty boxers, athletic briefs, what have you… most men do not seem to give them too much thought. My husband is super duper picky. He prefers dark colors, breathable fabrics, boxer briefs that are just so. I stopped trying to pick them out for him because I would inevitably get something that was totally wrong. Until I came across MyPakage and became an underpants superhero.

 I'll admit it. The reason I wanted Bob to try MyPakage is because I thought they were cute. I love the contrast-color waistbands and sleek line of their Weekday collection. They look like they would be comfortable and stylish, adding a bit of panache to my baby's nethers. I thought they would liven up his wardrobe, which generally sticks to a core palette of charcoal-grey-black-olive-dusk. A pop of color would be charming, right?

Plus, MyPakage is a Canadian brand and I've always had a crush on Canada. True fact. I was really surprised at how quickly Bob took to the idea of MyPakage. He looked at the slick packaging with some distrust initially but once he pulled a pair out and felt the silky 95% modal 5% spandex fabric and read that it is 50% more absorbent than cotton and just as breathable, he was intrigued. They are luxuriously soft, more than any other men's undergarments I have ever come across, without being frighteningly shiny and ostentatious. Even the Weekend MyPakage style, which has a showier wide silk waistband, is subtle:

The other massive difference with MyPakage is their patented KeyHole Comfort Technology. Not being a man, I can't claim to fully understand the genius of cradling your dangly bits but from what I gather, it's akin to finding the perfect bra. No bouncing, chafing or rubbing and your clothes fit better and feel better. This is especially important in the hot summer months.

It's so simple yet so ingenious. Bob says he doesn't ever want to wear other undergarments, even at $25 a pair. He says they are totally worth it and I must admit that they wash and dry very well with no shrinkage or pilling. Bonus- Bob even says he's now open to the possibilities of color. (I'm digging Perry the Platypus shades above.) They look really good on, too, by the way.
