    Anyone have a preference for Hanro underwear or other Swiss/German/European underwear brands? I have a hard time finding them at bargain prices. Know where to get them on the cheap (and preferably, ahem, UNUSED)?

    Unused would definitely be preferable [​IMG] I just bought about 30 pairs of black mercerized cotton Hanro briefs for resale, size medium. My sale price will be a very significant discount from retail, but I don't think it will qualify as cheap...

    I would be interested in buying a few pair. Let me know when you are ready to start selling them.

    Thanks,

    Logan.

    We offer the entire Zimmerli line. It's not what anyone would call cheap. However, we do hold to a Price Guarantee that our internet prices are the lowest advertised Zimmerli prices available anywhere. Zimmerli regulates the retail pricing. Although others sell it for more, anyone selling it for less would immediately lose their Zimmerli distributorship. Zimmerli, by the way, offers 78 different styles of shirts and briefs/boxers in 10 different fabrics/types.
    Quality-wise, from top to bottom, are Zimmerli, then Hanro, then Sunspel.
    Both the Men's and the Women's Zimmerli lines can be seen on our CustomShirt1.com website.

    P.S. I noticed the ahem-UnUsed. You should be aware that selling Used (or even just tried on.) undergarments containing a crotch is illegal in the U.S.

    i prefer zimmerli over hanro

    calida (also swiss) offers some very nice product (especially their seamless 'just feel' bodywear line) as does isa bodywear (swiss) which is a bit more fashion forward out there odd but some basic good product as well; scheisser (german) is another favourite for trunk style boxerbriefs and barco (greece) for some of the best cotton t shirts i've found at considerably less price than zimmerli or hanro

    I haven't made up my mind as to the "better" undershirt yet, as i still wear both hanro and zimmerli with dress shirts, round collar type.

    for business casual, i wear brooks brothers v-neck tshirts under sweaters, biz casual shirts, under gran sassos.

    I like Calvin Klein and J Crew for underwear, both can be found on sale pretty regularly. I prefer the soft jersey knit boxers and briefs over the cloth boxers that seem to be overtaking the boxer world.

    hermes - The name of the German company is "Schiesser" not "Scheisser". ("Scheisser" means "shitter" in German, a somewhat inappropriate name for underwear.)

    My grandmother sent me some underwear from Japan, (ginza brand, I believe) that's really comfortable. The waistband is covered by a strip of cotton.
