The Right Tool For The Job

underwear for men


Yesterday I bought one of those old style safety razors, the ones you twist the bottom of the handle, the top opens up like a butterfly and you can replace the blade. Neat.

I was excited, it was the same razor my dad used in the 60's and 70's. It was "retro" and a bit of nostalgia, I was curious to see what my father went through to get rid of stubble. With a lathered face, while holding a shaving tool from another era, I was thinking it was going to be a breeze. Less razor bumps, they said on the box. A smoother shave, they said. Sure, let's do this. 

15 seconds into it, while carefully trying to reach those pesky mustache hairs close to your nostrils (a move that I'm used to do effortlessly and safely with my modern shaver), I accidentally sliced my nose and it was a bloody mess, Carrie-style.

OK, then, I thought. I will try again more carefully this time. Of course familiarity with the tool plays a role, but after the second chunk of skin was cut off my face, it became clear that in life as in shaving, retro is cool but to get the job done, always use the right tool.

We Make Mission Critical Underwear

I believe using the right underwear will make you better at what you do. Even if "what you do" is to sit on the couch chillin' all day. Or fighting building fires. Or performing brain surgery. Or strapping yourself inside of a metal capsule and hurling your ass to space. Or kicking ass in Jiu-Jitsu.

We made Krakatoa thinking of our needs as men, not to impress others. You will impress yourself every time, though, when you wear yours. Guaranteed.

Sizing Guide

Krakatoa is designed to be flushed with your skin. There is no need to buy a size larger, as the front pouch eliminates "The Squeeze", and the 3-way stretch fabric conforms gently around your body. You want it snug, not loose, for maximum comfort.

Measure your waist size:
Wrap a measuring tape around your navel, at the narrowest part of your torso. Place a finger in between the tape and your body, for a comfortable fit.

*One thing to note, our XL is a bit larger, covering much of XL and XXL sizes.

In Between Sizes?
Krakatoa has a front pouch that conforms with your anatomy, so even if the undies feel snug around your legs and butt, your package is still comfy, so go for a smaller size for a snug fit. If you don't like it or the size was not correct, no worries, we will send you another pair on your correct size at no cost to you.
