Introducing Smuggling Duds

Ever wondered why boxers are called boxers? The term has been used in England since 1944 for all-around-elastic shorts, so named after the shorts worn by boxers, for whom unhindered leg movement (footwork) is very important. Boxers come in a variety of styles and designs but are characterised by their loose fit. That used to be the case, but how can one possibly perform a Guillotine Choke or a Gogoplata (these are UFC moves by the way, not Dolph Lungdren straight to DVD movies) with all that excess material? 

Introducing for the uninitiated, Smuggling Duds, a select product for a select market. The majority of underwear brands are indistinguishable. Partly because designs for boxers and briefs have remained implacable, a perfunctory sartorial accessory that barely has its time in the sun. Now, thanks to Smuggling Duds, we can dispel that fallacy. To prove it our team were dispatched some samples to road test, and you can watch our team disport themselves in the video below.

All Smuggling Duds boxer brief's come with their EU Design Registered and US Design Patented stash pocket to keep all your small valuables safe when travelling or on the move. Such as money, credit cards, driver’s license, passport, iPod, mobile phone, condoms etc. And let's not forget, if the lady/lass feels compelled to leave you a tip after an infallible performance (let you join the dots on that one) then the open stash pocket is just the ticket.
