We’re big fans of natural materials for our skivvies — here are our favorite brands for men’s boxers and underwear that are organic, comfortable, and made to last.

If you’re like some of the dudes we know, your favorite underwear probably has a few holes in them (don’t worry, we’re not judging!). But if you are on the lookout for new sustainable men’s underwear, we got you. We’ve sourced the best options out there for comfortable waistbands, minimal seams, and soft fabrics. Whether you’re searching for cotton boxers, Modal boxer briefs, or anything in between, these sustainable underwear brands have your butt covered… literally.

Why consider organic underwear?

Choosing organic underwear like men’s boxers offers lots of benefits for our health and the environment. Organic underwear made from materials like organic cotton is grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, which is better for the environment and reduces our exposure to harmful chemicals. Organic cotton boxers are also softer and more breathable, providing greater comfort. Additionally, organic farming practices promote better working conditions and fair wages for farmers. By opting for organic boxers, you’ll support sustainable agriculture and ethical labor practices while enjoying higher quality and more comfy underwear!

Our criteria:

Our editors have researched and reviewed sustainable fashion for a decade. These are our top picks of brands for men’s underwear that use organic, natural materials for soft, breathable, and long-lasting briefs and boxers to refresh your underwear drawer. We regularly update this list with emerging favorites that meet the criteria below.

  • NATURAL & ORGANIC | Made with soft, breathable, and safe fabrics, these men’s boxers only use natural and organic fabrics like organic cotton, or Tencel in their construction, benefitting both our health and the planet.
  • SOFT & COMFORTABLE | Uncomfy boxers are a no-go, so we’ve ensured each of these brands guarantee the softest and most seamless feeling boxers for all-day comfort!
  • MADE TO LAST | There’s nothing more agitating than holes in our boxers! Fortunately, these organic boxers are made with high quality materials that are durable and made to last through dozens of wears and washes.
