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
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).
