Dress Like a Man: Boxer Briefs from Crossfly

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while, know that I have a little bit of a “thing” for men’s underwear. In fact, there was a time where I was reviewing men’s underwear on a monthly (or even bi-weekly) basis for a bit. It’s been a while, but I am back with version 17 – featuring Crossfly.

It sounds weird to say out loud, but I am back on an underwear kick. Here’s a little intro to Crossfly:

Crossfly has been a vision of a small team of sporting product professionals from the UK and America. Together, we have acquired decades of experience working in the Sports industry for global brands within Marketing and Product Innovation.

Underwear is an odd thing to review. At the end of the day, its probably the most personal item of apparel that we own. Even though it can be awkward, its also something that we often wear for years (is that just a man thing? Probably). Thus, having something comfortable and functional is important on multiple levels for us runners.

Crossfly is a men’s underwear brand that was formed in 2018. They have a variety of styles, lengths, and even other apparel items (like socks), but the main component of Crossfly is their unique fly construction.

The pouch features a patent-pending horizontal fly that provides easy access and prevents keeps things in place. The moisture-wicking technology helps keep you dry and comfortable, while the Tencel, Modal, and Spandex materials create a soft and stretchy fabric that conforms to your body shape.

Additionally, the waistband is well-crafted, providing a secure fit that does not roll or dig into your skin, ensuring maximum comfort and support all day long. Together, these features make Crossfly’s underwear technology a game-changer for men who value both comfort and performance.

Crossfly offers a range of specifications to cater to different customer preferences. The underwear comes in different styles, including briefs, trunks, and boxer briefs, and a variety of colors. The PRO is a performance version, with a focus on supporting in all the right places while active, and the Ikon is a more “everyday wear” pair with a soft feel and secure feel.

They also make a nice pair of socks as well. The Vent Low Cut socks are surprisingly comfortable (for an underwear company at least) and have held up well to most pairs of running socks I have in my closet.

The only downside of Crossfly underwear is its premium price point, which could be seen as an investment. However, the quality of the product and features alone may make it worth your while. We anticipate these being around for the long haul.
