Platinum Boxer Briefs
Our softest style to date, Platinum boxer briefs are underwear for men made from premium Modal (AKA the Rolls Royce of men’s underwear fabric). The men’s boxer briefs feature a Relaxed Fit, so the boxer briefs are form fitting around the waistband and open up near the leg, with a " inseam and finished with a fly.
Each pair of our boxer briefs comes equipped with the BallPark Pouch. Designed to reduce friction while keeping everything supported and securely in place, this patented pouch technology features breathable fine mesh panels for chafe-free all day comfort.
No Rubbing or Chafing
Platinum boxer briefs are constructed from moisture-wicking Modal fabric (9%) and a splash of spandex (%) for ultimate comfort. Designed to keep moisture away from your skin and prevent chafing, the boxer briefs feature Flat Out Seams, which place the softer, flatter side of the underwear seam against skin. The boxer briefs have a Three-D Fit design which builds the underwear from nine panels around the thighs, hamstrings, quads and glutes to support every move you make.
Platinum Boxer Briefs for men are available in a range of patterns and block colors – enjoy all day comfort and support from your new favorite men’s underwear while you work, travel and get on with your day.
I recently received an email from Saxx noting a new colorway of Platinum underwear. I usually order from them direct, but they were out of my size, so I ordered it via Amazon (along with a t-shirt). I received both with no problem.
First thing I noticed is that the shorts fit differently. I have 10 pairs of large - these were tight, and the waist band immediately rolled. Checked the inside - said large. I noticed the band was thinner, and a bit more flimsy than earlier buys.
I also noticed the t-shirt also fit differently. Same size ordered - also a large for 10 other times - this too was different. Thinner material, tighter.
Needless to say I don't like either, and am returning both.
Only downside is they're a little small. Just a tiny tiny bit. I wear mediums and I run 34 - 36 depending on the brand, of the rest of the saxx a medium is perfect.. these its a little tight around the waist. Maybe the elastic is better, or maybe it's just new (though I don't recall this with the vibes). Hope they loosen up a little in the washer or I have to lose weight finally.
The rest is my honest experience with this pair over the last few weeks. The inseam is short and rides up constantly. It wasn't an issue when I first got them, but after a few washes, they ride up. The band does not stay. Yes its comfortable and doesnt leave skin imprints but it constantly rolls over and requires adjusting. I would not wear them all day. They handle mild sweat ok, but all day wear makes them loose and feeling like a rag almost. Not a good feeling.
It's too high of a price point and too many negatives. Thus, one star.
So I moved on from the discount 3-packs. I dabbled in Tommy John and Calvin Klein Steel Micro before I discovered SAXX. For me, they are the perfect balance of comfort and support. Unlike CK and Separatec, the sizing holds up after multiple washes.
The Ballpark Pouch is wonderful. It is roomy yet still keeps everything where it needs to be.
The fit around the inner thigh is comfortable yet tight enough to prevent chafing.
Some prints are better than others - but they do look good on you.
The Platinum has a fly and is relaxed - perfect for everyday use. The Quest also has fly and is outstanding for travel. The Vibe and Volt are better for more active days in cold and warm weather respectively.
First off, the fit was off. Usually it’s a firm fit and these were borderline baggy in the croch. This I could live with.
However, the first time I put them on, the waistband rolled down on me. By the end of the day, there was a full role in the front waistband. Aside from disfunctional, this is beyond annoying.
Not sure how this version is marketed as premium, but I would stick with the standard going forward.
Ps, if the seller is reading this, I will gladly send these back for a refund or a replacement pair as these are now useless to me.
