20+ Made in USA Men’s Underwear Brands

February 14, 2016 | By | 9 Replies More

I just learned that Wickers.com has closed up shop.

Here’s the email exchange I had with a reader that helped me learn about their closing, and encouraged me to explore other Made in USA Men’s underwear brands.

Seems that the wickers brand has closed up shop.

I found them while searching for a good quality made in the USA undergarment, as the Hanes products were wearing out in 6 months or less.

Now I have been using Wicker’s for several years now….recently decided to migrate from briefs to boxers, wickers website first said down for maintenance while they rework their product line.

More recently it just says that they are closed up for good.

I was very happy with the Wickers product and they were made in the USA.

I found your website while searching more about them to possibly find out what happened and what my alternates are. (other than buying and replacing hanes brand every 6 to 9 months.)

Made in USA Men’s Underwear

heya jeff,

good to hear from you buddy! thanks for stopping by and sending in your question.

i had not heard about wickers closing shop, but after receiving your email i did a little outreach to see if i could get any info on it.

come to find out, the reason wickers closed is pretty much because the founder decided to retire and didn’t want to have the effort of maintaining the brand.

all of the gear they had has been cleared out to partners, so you still may be able to find some remaining on sites like sierra trading post (link).

    Just ordered three pairs of Andrew Christian (AC) underwear (to replace my old ones) and was sickened to find that they’re now “Made in Thailand.” Being “Made in U.S.A.” is important to me and one of the main selling points I consider before choosing to purchase an item. I will no longer be giving them my business. Please remove them from your list. Thank you.

      heya raymond,

      thanks so much for letting me know about andrew christian underwear production being moved overseas.

      it’s crazy, because i know they were so proud of having their products made in los angeles at one point.

      are you looking for made in the usa briefs, boxer briefs, trunks, or boxers?

      any other made in usa brands of underwear you really like?

    I’m a big Wickers fan and feel lost now that they’re gone. I’ve been wearing their boxers and under shirts for over 10 years. I haven’t been able to find anything comparable to this point. I like to hear if anyone has suggestions.


    • Tug says:

      heya thad, what were the key things about the wickers underwear that you liked?

      please list all the characteristics so that i can figure out which products meet most of your criteria.

      did you buy their boxer briefs, or were they boxers?

        I, too feel sad that Wickers is gone. I always looked forward to their fall sales email where I can stock up on undergarments! I switched all of my underwear to Wickers about 7 years ago because of its moisture wicking properties, it kept me comfortable in hot or cold weather. If you can find another company that produces a similar moisture wicking, high quality and made in USA underwear (or boxer/boxer briefs, etc.) that would be much appreciated!

        • Tug says:

          in addition, you should checkout the sites listed in this article to see if they have anything that meets your needs.
