Bargain boxers

For about a decade America Today‘s self-branded Alex boxer were my absolute favorite. Well-designed (wedgie-proof ;-)), durable and comfortable, they offered great value for quality that was similar to Calvin Klein, but at a far better price. At one point however, an inside label was added that seriously irritated the skin and rendered them unusable (unless worn inside-out). A new generation slightly addressed this issue, but did not resolve completely … and I had to part ways with my favorite brand. Last week, I was informed that America Today had finally found a solution by simply removing the label … two days later the new version arrived at my door step. Perfect! The new boxers are available in their online store, but be careful the improvement only applies to this and this product. They are available with a buy two get one free deal and the 15FLIPIT coupon code gets you an additional 15% discount until the end of January 2016. Bargain.


Budget tip: Valentine’s discount at America Today

Gents in the Benelux with a particular preference when it comes to boxers, America Todayis offering a 20% reduction on all items until midnight today (February 14th, 2016). Just use the code love20. While they also carry a wide range of american college-style apparel, AT has always been my go-to store for boxers. They carry Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and also have their own Alex range which offers tremendous value and fits like a glove. Top tip: go for the 3-pack, which is even more sharply priced and does not have the scratchy inside label, which the range temporarily had and has been solved first with the pack.
