While some guys aren’t terribly particular about their underwear, a growing number are becoming increasingly particular about the brands and fabrics that touch their skin, and as a result a handful of manufacturers are responding with new designs and fabrics in the quest for perfect comfort. One of those brands, Tani, has recently launched its fall/winter 2015 collection, which the company says builds on its mission to to set a new standard in luxury mens underwear, offerings the world’s best and most comfortable undergarments that change the way you think and feel about mens underwear.
For this current season, the company sticks with its directive of working from a prevailing aesthetic that is pure; the Tani doesn’t offer hidden pouches, panels or gimmicks, instead using a design that is streamlined, classic with a nod to modernity. It has released several lines of underwear options: the SilkCut, LuxeLine, Shadow, Shadow SP and Thermaluxe.
SilkCut could be considered the company’s core line, luxuriously soft and lightweight but resilient enough to be your everyday option. The line uses Micro Modal AIR technology, a fabric that is thinner and softer than silk, which also offers stretch and recovery to keep its shape as you move and when it is being laundered. It’s available in several patterns and colors in a simple trunk, classic or modern boxer brief cuts, as well as a lounge pant.
For an even more luxurious option, Tani offers the aptly-named LuxeLine, which uses the finest and smoothest yarns to create a limited edition line of underwear. Calling it as close to having custom-made underwear as a man can get, the LuxeLine uses a blend of 88% Micro Modal fabric, 9% Lycra and 3% polyester that keeps its shape and embraces every contour. It’s available in a simple trunk, contour trunk, fitted button boxer, v-neck t-shirt in a handful of color options.
Tani’s Shadow line is created with the intent to create a sleek and slim profile while using a light and super-soft blend of 73% polyamide and 27% elastane fabric in a compact and unique knit that allows for unfinished edges which means there is no need for stitching ad the hem or leg. It is a breathable and moisture-wicking fabric that is also biodegradable and moves with you like your shadow, available as a simple trunk, contour trunk and v-neck t-shirt.
The Shadow SP line is billed as the high performance cousin of the original Shadow, adding a double-layer bonded mesh fabric to add structure, support and shape retention in a design that allows air to circulate for moisture wicking and breathability. Like the Shadow line, Shadow SP uses a blend of 69% polyamide and 31% elastane, both Italian-made fabrics that are biodegradable. Shadow SP is offered in a boxer brief, mesh boxer brief and tank top.
For those colder days, the Tani Thermaluxe uses a new innovation in nylon called Nilit that is insulation for the body, using body heat to warm you from the inside out, but don’t expect to break out into a sweat, as the weave wicks moisture away. Thermaluxe is made with a biodegradable blend of 91% polyamide and 9% Lycra that is anti-bacterial and naturally deodorant, offered as a thermal set of long sleeve top and bottoms.
