- Podcast listeners probably already know all there is to know about Mack Weldon. From comfy sweats and boxers, Mack Weldon has earned high praise from pop culture radio and major publications alike. Esquire happily boasts Mack Weldon as home to the "best boxers to wear every day." Mack Weldon specializes in high quality and smart design. Their boxers feature "no-roll" waistbands, mesh cooling zones for breathability and comfort, soft 18-hour Jersey fabric, and--maybe most popular--stay-put legs to combat bunching and rolling. They pride themselves on finding the best fabrics and fitting them to the best design through extensive blueprinting, testing, and fitting processes. So, when you buy Mack Weldon, you can be sure every order has been pushed to the limits of high quality and comfort.
- Speaking of best fabrics, Mack Weldon doesn't settle. They believe great products start with great materials, and if they can't find those great materials... they make them. Their fabric innovation line develops custom blends by taking the world's best fibers and turning them into even better fabrics. Their proprietary fabric, 18-Hour Jersey, is a blend of cotton, smooth modal, and stretch Lycra?. True to its name, this fabric sits for 18 hours before being cut, which is just how long it takes for the fibers to naturally expand. The result? A softer, more consistent feel and fit that's well worth the wait.
- Mack Weldon fabrics don't stop there. True to the brand, each fabric serves a specific purpose, be it functionality--like their quick-drying swimwear--or personal preference when it comes to the overall feel, Mack Weldon offers a diverse cast of fiber blends. Their Silver blend relies on technology long used by NASA, Olympic athletes, and the U.S. Special Forces, using pure silver to ensure lasting freshness in the harshest of environments. Where 18-Hour stresses softness and comfort, Silver offers rugged durability and long-term wear. What about Mack Weldon's other products, you ask: Yup, those are curated, too, with premium blends. Their T-shirts come in Dryknit, a 100% cotton jersey, enhanced with patented TransDRY? technology and proven to wick and vaporize moisture, keeping you up to 2 degrees cooler. Want to stay warmer? No problem. Their Warmknit blends smooth modal and just enough moisture-wicking, odor-fighting wool, all in a micro-waffle knit with a touch of stretch. All the heat for cold, winter months, with none of the added bulk or weight.
Mack Weldon is definitely high quality, high price. Where competitors like Pair of Thieves or Pact boast prices as low as $9, Mack Weldon products run the bill pretty quickly. Their boxers come in--on the low end--at arounnd $28. On the high end? You could spend upwards of $40 for a single pair of boxer briefs. Stylish, fucntional, durable. But not affordable.
Mack Weldon is definitely towards the top of the financial pyramid. Their products seem to be of higher quality than many competitors. But, if you shop there, you're definitely going to pay for that. For some, it might be worth it, or it could be a nice treat or gift for a loved one. But I'd say for the mas majority, stick to Hanes.
Mack Weldon specializes in high quality, higher design. They use custom fiber blends and proprietary fabrics to beat out the competitor. Their products are softer, fit better, and last longer because of it.
These are the basics of basics. Their products are deceptively simple, mostly come in solid colors or timeless patterns, and are easy to mix and match. Their aesthetic is really well-curated. When you shop Mack Weldon, consistency and reliability are givens.
They stress responsible manufacturing and all their products are ISO-certified. This isn't fast fashion. Not only will Mack Weldon textiles last and wear well, but you can also feel good about buying them and know your dollars are going towards a socially responsible supply chain.
Falling in love with Mack Weldon, but strapped for cash? While their prices are high, they offer alternative payment plans. So, you can pay a little now, pay a little later, and still enjoy quality goods, comfy loungewear, and fashionable, timeless tees and sweats. With afterpay, you can get the goods you love for payments as low as $6.
With all the different blends and choices, it can be a little confusing to shop many different items, and sizing is not always consistent from one product to the next. Where some run small--like their woven boxers--others run big. So, if you buy a size large in one item, that might not work so well with another. You have to be careful about measurements and product descriptions.
All their products favor the slender fit, which means a lot of them to run small. Especially in Mack Weldon's formal wear, like button ups and blazers, sizing descriptions and measurements don't quite match up with the reality of the fit. At such a high price, it's especially disappointing when the fit is inconsistent.
Where their underwear and loungewear stand the test of wear and tear, it seems their swim line is a bit of an afterthought. Users feel like the quality assurance missed the mark on this one, with inconsistent fits, uncomfortable cuts, and, ultimately, a swimsuit that doesn't warrant $90 a pop.
Despite Mack Weldon's "stay put" legs, their underwear does have a looser, more relaxed fit that sometimes causes them to ride up. This makes it less-than-likely wear with tighter pants or for any kind of workout. While they're great to lounge around the house in, they're just a bit too relaxed to stand up to the higher activity.
The ideal Mack Weldon customer is the well-groomed man. Their products are clean and precise, and their aesthetics are definitely skewed a little older, more mature. Although, with the variety of products and fits they offer, Mack Weldon seems to fit the needs of anyone looking for some comfortable basics to add to the wardrobe.
How long does the product last?
The average pair of underwear lasts anywhere from 6-12 years, and Mack Weldon is no exception. Their products are designed to last, especially their line of patented Silver boxers, which feature custom fabric with pure silver woven into the blend for added durability. That said, we'd recommend replacing old underwear well before the decades-old mark...
