It’s no secret that cotton isn’t the choice fabric for performance: between absorbing sweat and drying slowly, it’s pretty terrible, really. And yet nearly every pair of boxers or briefs we find in stores is made of the stuff. OLIVERS Brief instead employs a unique Active Silver-infused fabric weave of polyester, initially developed for military use by Schoeller. The 4-way stretch circular knit fabric wicks moisture away from the skin to stay fresh throughout all activities and conditions, and continues to retain its shape even after being stretched. And no flashy stripes or designs here: the briefs come in elegant yet understated Iron, Slate, and Cobalt colorways.
