Underwear is one of those things that you either think about a lot, or not at all. Whether you spend tons of time picking out just the right pair of panties or boxers, or tend to reup the same brand every three months, you should care about where your undies come from and how they're made (especially since they get replaced — hopefully — more often than other clothing or shoes).
A new company is about to make your job easier. Flint and Tinder
is running a Kickstarter campaign to get good quality, stylish men's underwear made in the USA again.
Besides providing jobs to American workers, the factory where the briefs will be made is solar-powered, the cotton comes from California, the elastic waist-band is made in Florida, and all the other materials (boxes, tags, etc.) come from the U.S., too.
