Wickers Underwear: Out of Business
Unfortunately, the made in USA men’s underwear brand Wickers has closed. Here’s the email exchange that inspired me to write this article and start my quest for 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 American made underwear, as the Hanes products were wearing out in 6 months or less.
Now I have been using Wicker’s for several years now, so I recently decided to migrate from briefs to boxers.
Wickers website first said down for maintenance while they rework their product line, then more recently it just says that they are closed up for good.
I was very happy with the Wickers products.
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.)
Good to hear from you buddy, and also thanks for stopping by and sending in your question.
I did not hear that Wickers was 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 struggle to keep the brand afloat.
All of the gear they had has consequently been cleared out to partners. So you still may be able to find some remaining on sites like Sierra Trading Post.
My Favorite Underwear Made in USA
To sum it up, my favorite American-made underwear brands are RibbedTee, All American Clothing and iLoveBad.
If I can’t wear my favorite Ribbed Tee underwear for some odd reason, I’ll wear a couple other brands, such as TommyJohn, but they’re not American-made.

I’m fairly sure Freedom Reigns is dead.
RibbedTee was making noises about shutting down too, unfortunately.
I wish there was a bit more variety without going straight from super plain cotton to “exotic” — don’t really like looking around at “exotic” underwear sites.
thanks janzig! i’ve updated this article to remove freedom reigns underwear.
i’ve heard there is still a possibility that ribbedtee will be acquired or the products will resurface, so i’ll keep them on this list for now.
have you checked out culprit underwear yet? they seem to have a variety of patterns/colors.
It’ll be good if RibbedTee resurfaces. I’m hoping they do.
Culprit unfortunately has only boxer briefs and shorts with liners. I’m really looking for briefs and similar styles to those.
I just found your site from searching underwear made in the USA, and I like how you have such an extensive list. Ribbedtee is out of all their products, not sure why they still even have the website up since they don’t seem to have anything for sale.
heya jonathan, thanks for stopping by and for your question!
there are still some rumblings that ribbedtee will either be acquired, or the underwear may become available a couple times per year via pre-order. there’s a waitlist on the ribbedtee website still as well.
that’s why i’m keeping the brand listed here for now (:
I own a 1/2 dozen+ pairs and love them, solid holiday sales and great customer service.
i just removed flint & tinder from the list.
got an email stating that their underwear was on clearance, and nearly 100% sold out.
all of their boxer briefs in their “basics” category are sold out, except one color of heritage boxer briefs in size xxl.
all of their heritage boxer briefs (out of stock) are priced under $20, normally $28.
you can add your name to their wait list, but with the price under $20, and everything out of stock without any further explanation, i get the sense these american made boxer briefs are not coming back.
if anyone finds out differently, please let me know.
I just purchased three pairs of Flint and Tinder boxer briefs. Looks like they have plenty in stock and are back up and running again. Maybe they were down for a bit due to COVID and understaffed like so many other businesses. Hope this helps.
thanks jake. i’ll put it on my list to add flint & tinder back into this article if they’re still being made in the usa.
I am starting a men’s underwear company and I am looking for good quality underwear manufacturers in the United States, do you know any companies that will be able to process small orders for a start-up like me?
heya andrew, thanks for stopping by!
here are a couple made in usa underwear supplier ideas:
1. contact the folks from swav apparel (swavapparel.com). they have a “u.s. wholesale” link at the bottom of their website, though it doesn’t link anywhere.
that either implies they are no longer offering their underwear on wholesale, or their website link is broken (: if they wholesale, maybe you can buy some of their underwear without their branding, in smaller quantities.
2. you may want to poke through makersrow.com some, and look for underwear manufacturers — all are based in america.
how far along are you with your men’s underwear company initiative? i’d love to learn more.
Thank you for your advice I will definitely look into this and let you know what I find.
As for how far along I am, I am very early in the start-up phase. Meaning, right now I am just trying to gather all the information/research I need to start, then I will have to wait for capital to make my moves (which shouldn’t be too far away).
I would really like to go further in-depth about what I am doing and to tell you some more details if you’re interested, but if it’s okay with you I would rather go into a private chat room or maybe call if you’re not busy.
Andrew. This sounds amazing. A designer wear, for what is needed.
I just called REI Co-op and they said they’re brand underwear is not being made in the USA at this time, fyi.
Thank you for the website!
heya steve!! thanks a ton for letting me know that rei is no longer making their underwear in the usa.
really appreciate you calling them to find out, and then coming back here to let us know — good investigatory work (:
i’ve removed them from the article.
Are Separatec or Sheath underwear made in the USA? I can’t seem to find any info on where they are mfg’d.
heya mike, thanks for stopping by and posting your question.
as far as i know, sheath underwear are made in zhongshan, china.
i don’t know exactly where separatec underwear are made, but i have to assume they are also made in china.
separatec is a trademark of a privately held company named beijing smashing e-commerce co., ltd. as their name implies, they are (or were) headquartered in beijing.
coincidentally, that same company also is the owner/registrant of the underwear brand trademark “david archy” — a brand of underwear & undershirts primarily sold on amazon.
a representative of separatec & david archy contacted me back in august 2018, asking if i’d like to get samples of and review their separatec underwear and david archy undershirts.
i never guarantee a written review in exchange for product samples, but i always tell the brands i’ll be happy to provide them feedback. after two email exchanges, the separatec / david archy rep stopped replying to my emails. i sent the person two or three follow-up emails, but they never responded.
maybe they’ll find this comment sometime, reconsider, and send over some samples for me to check out (:
I looked at Tommy John underwear and could not find an answer to a direct question.
Where are they produced at>
Tommy John products are made in Peru, Jordan, Sri Lanka, China, and Egypt.
The were originally made in Los Angeles, but they have jumped on the cheap labor band wagon.
They even try to make the excuse that outsourcing, “reduces the carbon footprint”.
A lame excuse indeed.
I will no longer be purchasing their products.
They are way overpriced. I was willing to pay more when they were made in the USA.
heya tim, i’m trying to get a more precise answer, but gary is largely correct.
they definitely started in los angeles. but after 2-3 years, started manufacturing in china and egypt.
this is the information i just received from their director of brand communication:
“Tommy John products are made all over the world, in locations where we have found the best fabric suppliers and manufacturers of garments at the quality and scale our customers have come to expect. Dependent on the product and the fabric used, the product may come from Peru, Jordan, Sri Lanka, China or Egypt.”
i did email the person back to see if i could get a more precise, less generic answer about where their men’s underwear and undershirts are manufactured, but not sure they’ll provide any other specifics. we’ll see.
Don’t forget Bills Khakis. I love their Made in USA boxers. They are pricey ($40), so I catch them on the 50% off sale.
What’s the point of buying underwear if they cost you 2 legs and an arm? How do you even keep them on?
Seriously though, I enjoy quality and comfort and as a veteran I appreciate American made products.
I just cannot justify $20+ for a single pair of skivies!
This isn’t about wages or material costs, it’s purely about greed!!
thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us!
if you want to talk about greed, then let’s look at all of the premium underwear brands that are made overseas using cheaper labor, lower quality materials, and sold individually for $25+ — some even more outrageously priced from $40+.
i’m not saying there aren’t american brands that utilize “made in usa” to try and justify super high pricing, because there are certainly brands doing that.
but i wouldn’t call any american brand who is likely making premium underwear for $7-$9 and selling it for $25-$30 greedy.
also, let’s put this in perspective.
if you go out to a decent dinner, you’re likely spending $15-$25, conservatively, and even more if you get drinks (alcohol).
so for the same price of going out to dinner one night, you can be wearing very good quality underwear that lasts years, and fits & feels better than probably most of the value-priced underwear brands.
imo, that’s a pretty darn good value.
that said, there are brands like campbellsville apparel that are making 100% cotton briefs, made in america, for around $4 each.
also, union house brand (available at union label – link in article above) has underwear that are priced between $10-$15 each.
so, if you’re looking for less expensive made in usa men’s underwear, you may want to check with both of those websites.
I’ve tried Flint & Tinder, Blade and Blue, Union House, Wickers, BGreen, Ramblers Way, and AllAmericanClothing’s VIPs (which are not, BTW, 100% cotton).
The only ones I’ve found to be 100% cotton (not PC blend or modal or lycra or whatever else they throw in these days) and all day comfortable are the BGreen covered elastic boxer briefs.
All the rest sat too low, rode too high, were a tad short in the inseam for my taste as a BOXER brief, or pinched in uncomfortable places.
However, I had a bit of a disagreement with the company on their customer service when a couple pairs I ordered, in the same marked size as previous pairs, were actually smaller and I shared images with them and they still said I must have washed them wrong, I have decided to no longer patronize their apparel.
That leaves me with very few options.
Have you found any other underwear that is 100% cotton, USA made, and comfortable for hot/humid environments?
Thanks for your insight.
thanks for stopping by, and sharing information about your experiences with the various brands.
i’ve added bgreen & all american to my list, so thanks for letting me know that those brands are making men’s underwear & are also made in usa.
first, i’m totally shocked & appalled that the folks at bgreen outright blamed you for washing their underwear incorrectly.
even if it were your fault, and it sounds like it was not, a fair and cooperative brand should offer a courtesy replacement.
i definitely do not believe “the customer is always right”, but even when the customer has done something wrong, i think brands need to handle those situations more carefully, and doing so without blatantly accusing the customer of being a liar.
in simple terms, bgreen is accusing you of lying about how you cared for your bgreen underwear — and i don’t think that was very smart of them.
i’m so sorry to hear that happened to you. hopefully that is not something that happens to other bgreen underwear customers on a regular basis.
unfortunately, at the moment, i don’t know of any american manufacturing brand that makes 100% cotton underwear.
that said, and in my own personal experience, i have found other blends to be more comfortable in hot/humid weather than 100% cotton.
keep in mind that breathability & comfort is:
1. dependent on fabric weight, weave, & characteristics
2. impacted by underwear fit
3. personal & subjective
are you against trying any other underwear that are made with different blends?
i’m going to ping my buddy jason, who’s been trying out a lot of different brands of underwear to find out what his favorite pair of underwear is, and what underwear brands that he has tried that are made here in america.
Just wanted to let you know I tried the cartthart link in your site and a pahe pops up danger unsafe site
thanks doc! i had a typo in the product name (carhartt, not carhatt).
also, i re-checked the website and noticed that the carhartt boxer briefs are now imported, so i had to take them off this made in usa underwear list.
regardless, thanks again for letting me know about the link problem.
Looks like everyone who liked to keep dry will have to do some extra work.
I remember the owner on a commercial telling all the wonderful properties of his products. I think he may have a large and loyal customer base.
Why not be a hero and sell your company if your going to retire anyway.
We very much like your products. Give it a thought, please.
I looked through the sites. Most of these options are imported. I hate that Huckberry.com requires a login. I just want new underwear, I don’t want it to be a social media event.
heya l, thanks for stopping by my site and checking out this article!
i re-checked most of these offerings, and they still all appear to be made in usa.
which ones specifically were not made in the usa?
i’d be happy to update this listing accordingly (:
My husband will buy nothing but american made. He has been a Union Member for 50 years and American/Union made is very important.
I am so sad the wickers closed shop. I know because he is still wearing the wickers and needs new ones badly . I have spent numerous hours looking.
Finally ordered some from round house with a no fly front. Sent them back the same day.
Hopefully more people will ask for American Made. Is it not sad that the US cannot make clothing, shoes etc.
hey there charlotte,
thanks for stopping by, and sharing your thoughts!
never know, with the incoming administration focused on american jobs, and imposing taxes on u.s. companies that move their operations outside of the united states, that may help bring more apparel-related manufacturing back to the united states.
i guess we’ll see.
in the meantime, i’d encourage you to visit the websites listed in the above article, and see if you can find some nice, made in usa underwear for your husband (:
keep me posted!!
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.
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 just received my first pair of Mr. and Muse. They are ‘Made in China.’
I too am sickened. Please remove them from your list as well. Being Made in America was one of my primary reasons for purchasing them.
I will be returning what I have and cancelling the remaining order.
thanks william for confirming. i’ve removed mr. and muse from the list.
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.
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!
hey jon, thanks for stopping by! just keep an eye out here on my site for any new announcements.
in addition, you should checkout the sites listed in this article to see if they have anything that meets your needs.
if you find something you really like, be sure to come back here and let me know about it (:
Thanks for supporting made in USA products. We really appreciate the shout out.
Love the site by the way.
Blade + Blue
my pleasure (:
It’s vital we support industry at home, especially these days – thanks for this list!
I couldn’t agree more!
Buy American Made – it matters.
