My husband happens to be very particular about the types of underwear he will wear, mostly it’s just boxers but I recently ran across a company called Slix that offers not only underwear but also shirts and socks! After reading a little bit about Slix I decided that my husband should really give them a chance so when we had the opportunity to do a review on the Slix Closer™ boxer briefs he seemed really excited!
About Slix (Taken From Website):
Slix founder Greg Hall had been searching for underwear that fit his active professional and personal lifestyle for years. Traditional cotton underwear, with its shortcomings --it stretches out, retains moisture, comes untucked, and doesn’t move with you -- just wasn’t cutting it.
Department stores still predominantly offered cotton underwear, differentiated only by brand and value. You could select the $52 pair with the designer label or the generic 3-pack for $12. Functionally, there was very little difference.
Athletic stores offered garments that utilized performance materials, but none that were designed with the versatility to meet the daily needs of an active professional. Hall wanted underwear that would not only be functionally superior to cotton, but also versatile enough to wear to the office, under jeans or shorts, working out, or under his board shorts at the beach.
There the idea was born: Slix would do for professional men what garment manufacturers had done for athletes a decade before – provide them with revolutionary products that fundamentally enhanced their comfort and performance.
Slix launched in November 2009 as an online, direct-to-consumer business with the mission to enhance the lives of professional men through superior products and exceptional service.
Get your Slix on.
Chad was sent a pair of the Slix Closer™ boxer briefs in black to review. At first when they arrived he was a little more than iffy about them because like I said before he is very particular when it comes to his underwear, boxer only for him because he says with his job consisting of being outside in the hot and sweating other types of underwear cause him to get chafed easily.

Now back to the review, I have asked my husband to be the one to mostly do this review being that he is the one that has worn the Slix Closer™ boxer briefs.
He has worn these several times since receiving them just to make sure we did a completely honest and thorough review and he says he has to admit that these are the most comfortable boxer briefs he has ever worn. Normally he would have stayed away from these while choosing his underwear but he has never been happier with a pair of boxer briefs!
He also states that they really help to keep him cool while working and he has not had a problem with chaffing since starting to wear the Slix Closer!
Now, I know that he must really like these boxer briefs because somehow they end up in the daily wash well daily and he wants them washed in a rather big hurry so I’m planning on purchasing him more in the very near future to save the life of the pair he has now! I will admit that I think they are very sexy on him…I think of them as his man lingerie ;0) I much prefer him in these then his normal baggy boxers he has sported since we long before we ever became and item!
I also want to state that these boxer briefs have defiantly stood up to his almost constant use of them and held up like a gem during the wash and dry process!
We are both very impressed with these Slix Closer™ boxer briefs and Chad says he will continue to order and wear these for a very long time. He is also wanting to get his hands on the shirt and socks that Slix offers to see if they work just as well…but I feel like they probably do being that we’ve had such a great experience with the boxer briefs I would not hesitate to purchase anything at all from Slix as a gift or just because Chad needs them!
Chad has a birthday coming up real soon like Aug. 16 so I think I’m going to get him one of the Slix™ Executive Pack II that includes the Slix™ Downsizer, Slix™ Closer Boxer Brief and the Slix™ Movers so that he can get a feel of all of them!
