Made by BRYNJE (Norway)
One of the most sought after labels we have.
Brynje from Norway. The original String underwear.
The idea of net underwear began in the 1930`s with army officer Henrik Brun. Brun took many winter trips in the Hardangervidda, a high, exposed plateau in Norway with a harsh unforgiving climate. He found that the net design provided excellent insulation and warmth yet allowed excessive perspiration and heat to escape during intense activity.
Officer Brun`s net underwear was extremely effective but it was not until the 1950`s when Brynje developed the first machine knit cotton shirt that net underwear was available to the general market. The new net underwear was quickly adopted by leading expeditions and Brynje still have the picture from the famous 1954 Everest Expedition with Tenzing Norgay pulling on his Brynje net undershirt!
Perfect to be worn with traditional string trunks or button front boxer shorts... If you ever get caught without a shirt on you will certainly look impressive in this item!!!
Cotton net underwear
The original Brynje 100% cotton net underwear that has been keeping people comfortable for over 50 years.
Knitted from the finest 100% cotton yarn the net matrix both allows perspiration to escape while simultaneously maintaining a regulated cushion of air next to the skin. By nature cotton garments offer unsurpassed breathability and Brynje cotton net underwar is the ideal choice for daily use to keep you incredibly comfortable and warm.
It should be noted that cotton yarns will absorb moisture unlike the synthethic Meraklon yarn used in the Super Thermo products. The Brynje cotton net is therefore recommended for lower intensity activities where perspiration will not be a major factor.
Brynje cotton net is available in two weights. This is the LIGHTWEIGHT version.
Material: 100% string cotton
