Shop Talk: Parker & Pine

Parker & Pine

Parker & Pine began and succeeded as a Canadian Plus Sized company. Targeting “the fashion conscious big man,” they create modern and high-quality menswear basics made to flatter and properly fit men of a larger size. But starting this summer, things are going to change at Parker & Pine. Not only will new imagery be revealed, but so will pairs of underwear for all sizes.

Similar to other brands, Parker & Pine underwear is designed with flat lock stitching for a seamless finish, and a contoured pouch for added support, comfort, and definition. Parker & Pine’s choice of fabric – Tencel – also adds to the underwear’s comfort. It’s more absorbent than cotton, anti-microbial, and has a luxurious, silky feel.

Design aspects that cater to the larger man sets Parker & Pine’s underwear apart. A longer inseam is used to reduce chafing. An angled waistband sits higher in the back so the wearer can avoid having to pull up his underwear. A mesh zone is also strategically placed where you don’t want any moisture build-up. It makes the brand’s underwear more breathable, more functional, and better at staying consistently fresh.

How exactly did Parker & Pine learn to cater to the bigger man? The brand’s design process starts with market research.

Would you or anyone you know benefit from plus-sized underwear? Is your favorite pair made from Tencel? Let us know in the comments below, or by tweeting us @underwearexpert.

    Kudos to UE for addressing styles for the girthier male. After all, they wear undies too, and they deserve to be in something sexy and comfy. In reality, and though they may look stunning, everyone is not interested in the gym-tastic models shown in the sleek underwear. This is real life composed of real people. Thanks, UE, for bringing this reality to light.
