  • Designer Spotlight: Björn Borg Underwear

    The Swedish clothing brand Björn Borg, aptly named after the infamous tennis legend, is an established brand that thrives within the underwear industry. Recognised for changing the history of men’s underwear, alongside a little grand slam help from the legend himself, Björn Borg is synonymous with creating fresh and innovative designs all across Europe.

    A Brief History

    During his prime, Björn Borg was the embodiment of both style and finesse. Men wanted to be him; women wanted to be with him. Throughout the decades, Borg’s legacy has continued, as the Björn Borg underwear range represents the notorious Borg style within a contemporary brand.

    Borg’s iconic, rock-star image and rebellious demeanour was the inspiration behind their eye-catching products, in particular, their underwear. Björn Borg was a rebel both on and off the court, and he transformed the stereotypical image of tennis players during that time. His long hair and iconic headband had not previously been seen within the tennis world, and it was this rebellion which sparked the influence behind their brand. This remains part of their heritage today, as they continue to create daring, sexy underwear but with a unique, sporty twist.

    Finding the right pair to suit your Lifestyle

    At Potters of Buxton, we understand that most men don’t put a huge amount of effort or research into buying new underwear. Just because not everyone can see your underwear doesn’t make it any less important. Your thoughts aren’t visible either, but they’re still important. For this reason, we have come up with a useful guide on how Björn Borg underwear can be adapted to suit your unique lifestyle and implemented into your daily wardrobe essentials. Björn Borg takes pride in combining comfort with functionality, and their signature bold prints push away from traditional, everyday styles of underwear.

    Determine your preferred materials

    Firstly, it’s important to establish what type of material you prefer when it comes to your underwear. Björn Borg create underwear in a large selection of materials to meet your individual needs. At Potters of Buxton, we believe that finding comfort should be your first priority; that’s why the majority of Björn Borg underwear that we supply is created using a suitable blend of cotton and elastane, allowing for high levels of stretch and comfort. Choose a fabric that you know suits your body shape and skin type; one that provides maximum enjoyment and won’t irritate your skin.

    Consider your environment

    The surroundings in which you wear your underwear is an aspect not to be overlooked. For instance, if you live in the countryside and frequently enjoy winter walks, it might be an idea to invest in underwear created with sleek materials, such as wool or lycra, as they will naturally thermalise your body, providing you with extra insulation and comfort. Similarly, you should opt for tighter fitting boxers during the colder months to provide additional warmth. If you’re lucky enough to be escaping to a hot country this winter, we would suggest choosing underwear that uses a light cotton, rather than polyester or nylon, as an increase in heat and friction can encourage skin irritation.

    Your daily goals

    If you’re channelling your inner tennis player, Björn Borg underwear is an ideal solution. Designed for athletes, our Björn Borg performance range is created with flat seams to prevent abrasion and cotton rich fabric to smoothly move alongside you; providing you with a tighter fit to maximise performance and help you smash your goals. Björn Borg performance wear will also absorb any excess sweat and moisture that may occur throughout your sporting endeavours. If your underwear is for work or leisure, opt for cotton fabric in a looser fitting style to provide all-day comfort.

    Be Confident

    When it comes to underwear, choose colours and patterns that reflect your personality and make you feel good about yourself. Opting for a fit and style that will accentuate your lower body is a sure fire way to boost your personal satisfaction and overall body confidence. Björn Borg have huge selection of underwear in bold and exciting colours to give you added style points and transform your everyday essentials.

    At Potters of Buxton, we also supply an exciting assortment of Björn Borg patterned socks; helping you add those finishing touches and elevate your unique look.
