Red Torpedo Simone Boxer Briefs are fantastic! The boxer briefs are really quite stylish and have a bit of and edge to them. Red Torpedo portrays themselves as a brand with attitude. By sponsoring Carl Fogarty and Guy Martin (super bike racers), they add to their rough-edged image.
The Simone boxer briefs are made from a blend of 95% cotton, 5% lycra. The fabric is very comfortable and molds comfortably to your body. The pair I tried was red with a black contrasting keyhole fly opening. The waistband was very comfortable as well as the leg bands – keeping the legs where they should be without riding up. I found the panel construction to be keenly placed to provide support and comfort for optimum movement.
These truly are one of my favorite pair of underwear. I have numerous pairs in my drawer but keep coming back to my Red Torpedo's when I'm looking for something comfy for the day. I've worn these under my business suit and to the gym and have always been comfortable – wash after wash. Check 'em out, you won't be disappointed! You can see some of their other styles from an earlier post.
Excerpt from “for a modern man”
Red Torpedo – King of the Underworld Red Torpedo is a new, maverick brand designed to inject some badly needed attitude into the male underwear, clothing and accessories sector. Based in Glasgow, they are a new business with big ideas which were born out of a brief discussion in a Seattle coffee shop. Red Torpedo offer stylish, affordable quality with attitude. The style, quality and comfort are down to there fantastic design team sparked by a passion for new music, brand personality and the people who wear there underwear.
As part of their brand strategy and profiling Red Torpedo sponsor Guy Martin who is a professional motorcycle racer, bike engine tuner and truck fitter. But more than that he is a one-off, a throwback to a time before PR men ruled motorsport. He's uncensored and unconcerned by who he upsets, he just tells it how he sees. Guy wins races and sets lap records in the world's most hair-raising motorcycle races. Races like the Isle of Man TT races, Ulster GP, North West 200 and Macau GP. This is pure road racing, between the hedges on roads with lamp posts, potholes and white lines painted down the middle.
