Thanks for your feedback.  Again, these are all great questions.  

 

Bemis® adhesive is a thermoplastic film.  It requires high heat to activate it, high pressure to make it penetrate the fabric, and time under heat and pressure to make sure the adhesive reaches the proper temperature and melt flow.  A combination of chemical and mechanical bonding will result in a strong, durable and elastic bonded garment.  When the adhesive is properly selected and bonded, the bonded parts are extremely durable.  Bonded garments withstand many wash and dry cycles without delamination.  

 

You may dry the garments in a dryer, if you choose to.  However, we recommend washing in cold, and hang dry.  Our in-house engineered fast-dry fabric and the low profile seam structure work hand in hand in reducing the drying time drastically, which makes them perfect for travel. 

 

Cheers,

Jen

Wow - love this thread and the look of this product - and love the logo too!  Have visited your site as well...The boxers / briefs look pretty interesting - So, the briefs really dont "ride up" as you're wearing them? No riding up on the legs?  Also, can you buy the boxers seperately?

 

Thanks,

Hello chrisjc77, thank you for your interest in our product and your compliment.  

 

We do sell the undershirt and the boxer briefs separately.  The legs do not ride up because the leg openings are reinforced with Sewfree® adhesive films from Bemis®.

 

If you are interested in our products in the meantime, they will be available at our trunk shows or please PM me and I will do my best to fill your order.  Our eshop shall be launched in 3 months and we will post updates here too.

 

Once again, thank you for your interest and please do not hesitate to ask if you have more questions.

Thanks for answering my post!

 

Yes, love the look of these, especially the briefs / boxers...

 

Question, in terms of the fabric - is it non irritating to someone with skin conditions or sensitive skin?? Just curious.  Again love the look of this stuff.

 

Thanks

Hello chrisjc77, thank you for your questions.

 

We developed our fabric in-house with a combination of high-twist cotton, polyester, and Lycra.  The high-twist cotton gives a dry feel on skin and and the fabric is fast-dry.  It has also been treated with antimicrobial protection against odour-causing bacteria.  

 

Not sure what skin-conditions you're referring to.  While we do not make false or untested claims,  it is fair to say that our undergarments are very comfortable to wear simply because we have replaced traditional stitching with Bemis® Bonding technology.  The garment is completely bonded, created without a single sewn stitch.  By eliminating layers of stitching, it results in low profile, non abrasive bonded seams/hems.  The garment, therefore, is much lighter and is very comfortable to wear.  

 

We have family members, friends and clients who have very sensitive skin and they used to turn their underwear inside-out to wear because of the constant friction of the sewn seams irritating their skin.  That's one of the reasons we created our fully bonded undergarment, and even the logo/care label is bonded.  

 

Some even commented that our undergarments are reversible... so picture this...

I'm happy to share my experience with GIIN undershirts.

 

I originally purchased some clothing from Frank, the owner of GIIN and got to know him a little. Over a year ago, Frank told me about the undershirts he was developing so I was happy to purchase a few and provide feedback to assist in developing the product.  


Frank asked if I could share the feedback I've already given him personally, with the SF community. 

 

What I like:

 

  • Deep v-neck allows you to unbutton top two buttons on your shirt without showing any undershirt.
  • Great moisture wicking ability. I find if I sweat, even a fair bit, the undershirt dries so quickly it's never been an issue.
  • Super comfortable after the first 2-3 wears. The first time I wear a new one, it's a little uncomfortable, you can feel it on you. However, after some use, it fits to your body, and you truly don't notice you're wearing it anymore. 
  • They are nice and long and easily tuck into your pants, so I don't find the undershirt 'riding up' and having to adjust it during the day.

 

The only negative I've had is that after maybe 30 wears and a little more than that on another one, the bonded ends started to come undone around the collar and waist. I simply trimmed it off with scissors and have found zero impact on the comfort or function. I expect the shirts will wear more frequently with the protection from the bonds though. There's still quite a bit of life in them, and I think I'll get my money's worth by the time I have to toss them.

 

All I can say in summary, is that I won't be buying any other kind of undershirts in the future. It's GIIN or nothing.
