Trust me when I say this, it is a pain to find quality boxers made ethically somewhere in Europe. I tried to find some for the past 6 months without much success, a few brands were branding themselves as ethically-made but without much data behind it.
It was time for me to change that, and at 55€ for three it was the perfect chance. It is still a budget of course, but when compared to Calvin Klein — a brand a lot of people seem to enjoy — it's not that far off.
Made with 93% Egyptian cotton and 7% elastane, the main fabric is nice to the touch and falls back into its original shape once fully dried. The waistband does its job, I ordered my usual size — extra small — and they feel perfect.
Both yarns are woven in died in Porto, Portugal and the construction takes place in the same city. You can learn more about the factory here.
The dark navy colours used by Asket is, well, dark. You could think it's black in lower light situations. It is a bit of shame since they do have a black version; I would enjoy having a simple navy instead.
I have been wearing them for a month now, washing them at 30°C / 600rpm without any issue. They stay on nicely for the entire day, my most comfortable boxers for now!
