Our Story

We’re 4 best friends that left our careers in the financial industry to find a solution for bad underwear days. We searched far and wide for a comfortable pair of boxer briefs and didn't find a pair we were happy with.

So, with no experience or skills in apparel design or manufacturing, we set off on a 10-month journey of re-inventing men's underwear with an unprecedented approach: a simple yet functional design with highest quality materials, at a reasonable price.

After dozens of trials and iterations, we created the most comfortable Boxer Brief ever—featuring a luxurious plant-based fabric called Modal, which is over three times softer and more breathable than cotton, while still maintaining its shape throughout the day and the laundry.

We built the boxer brief with a "Mansack" to separate the boys from your thighs, it's the most comfortable thing ever. Customers have told us that its like going commando, yet still feeling supported. You can learn more about the boxer brief here.

During our product development process, we took great pride from conceptualization to production, and everything in between. We obsessed over all aspects of the product to the point where some would call our attention to detail psychotic; it is just in our DNA.

During our journey, we also discovered that there are other essential products men are "tolerating" every day. Manmade is the "guy brand" that men deserve - quality essentials men need, without the BS they don't.

We're not going to lie; this has been a scary endeavor. We could have just stayed at our jobs and ignored the inspiration in our hearts. But we believe in ourselves and in each other. As they say, it's the journey, not the destination.

We're so excited and overjoyed to build Manmade for you and our community. Because no matter what, we're in it together. Balls deep.

Thank you,
Berto, Phil, Anthony and Robert
