Boxer Shorts by Moore Boxers

Tim Moore is just a hard working guy that believes in well made things and when he couldn’t find a pair of boxers that were to his standards and that were made in the USA he realized that he was going to have to make his own. Fortunately, he took his passion a little further and has set up shop in an old ammunition factory in Milvale, Pennsylvania with some industrial sewing machines that make a top notch seam and some metalworkers he shares the rest of the space with. He might be learning how to weld the hell out of some cool stuff soon but for now he is meticulously cutting and sewing some of the best fitting and luxuriously soft boxer sorts out there. They are constructed of premium Japanese shirting materials that come in two simple but classic colors and are put together using elastic made in Landrum, South Carolina and thread that is also domestically sourced.
