Product Feature: A Look at the New Tani SilkCut Collection

I have a love-hate relationship with underwear. On one hand, who really likes to wear an extra layer of clothing? On the other hand, when you find a really good pair isn’t it kind of amazing?!

Today, we’re taking a look at Tani’s new SilkCut Collection.

Back in 2014, I tried out some of Tani’s offerings and found them to be pretty solid. Obviously, if you’re used to wearing underwear that comes in under $10 and in a multipack, trying out more luxurious options is going to feel starkly different.  Recently, I was interested in trying out Tani’s new SilkCut Collection, which is reportedly SOFTER than silk, itself.  Needless to say, I was intrigued and skeptical.

Here are the product’s key selling points:

  • The only underwear made with MicroModal® AIR

  • The fabric is thinner, finer and more durable than silk

  • Naturally wicking fabric keeps you cooler and dryer

  • Quick Dry, Lightweight, Breathable, 8 Way Stretch

  • Patented “No Grip” Waistband

Having tried out the new, patterned trunks (who needs boring solid colors all the time?) on hot and humid NY days, I can absolutely vouch for the comfort and cool factor. These products breathe well which is great for all guys, especially those who run a little hot like I do. I didn’t recognize any bunching or discomfort whatsoever, which in all honestly, is rare for me.

I can’t say whether or not Tani SilkCut Collection is actually softer than silk or not, because frankly I could probably count on less than one hand the number of times I’ve held silk fabric in my hands. However, I have to that I am incredibly impressed by the craftsmanship from the folks over at Tani. The products are good. It’s a whole different standard that I’m most often exposed to, and that’s a great thing.

And did I mention the technology used to create this amazingly soft fabric is CO2 neutral. How cool is that?!

That being said, Tani products are luxurious and are quite an investment. You might end up spending upwards of $50 for a pair of underwear, but somehow it’s still a solid value considering the quality and feel of their products. I still have, and can wear, the products I reviewed back in 2014 and they have no signs of slowing down.

I know all of us (at some point) have joked about getting socks or underwear for presents, but man, I think that any guy would consider himself pretty lucky to having any of Tani’s products on his body, especially the new SilkCut Collection.
