2xist – The Essentials to Living Confidently
2XIST underwear is one of the leading men’s underwear brands. Founded in 1991 by Gregory Sovell, who left in 2005 to form C-in2 underwear, the brand is headquartered in New York City and currently led by Creative Director Jason Scarlatti, who joined the company in 2004 after a five-year tenure at Tommy Hilfiger.
Pronounced ‘Two-Exist,” the underwear brand focuses on quality, sexy styles, and designs that compliment the male form. The brand aims to lead the evolution of fabrics, materials, and technology to create better fitting underwear for fashion-forward, confident and modern men.
The brand has a repertoire of widely successful collections including 2xist Touch, 2xist Military, 2xist Essentials, 2xist Form, Lift, and Tux. The brand’s ranges are designed for men that appreciate design and fashion and who are able to appreciate bright colors and modern styles; its underwear, however, provides comfortable cuts that any man would feel comfortable in, which many brands emulates. The brand guarantees the use of only the highest quality cotton ensuring soft and fitted underwear resistant to shrinkage.
In the New York based brand’s underwear ranges, you’ll find the following men’s 2xist underwear:
