5 reasons why men should wear bamboo clothing

5 reasons why men should wear bamboo clothing

Generally speaking, guys look for ease when it comes to clothes shopping. They don’t want to spend hours trying things on or fussing over what’s trending. So, when they find a style of clothing they love, they’re likely going to stick with it.

Enter bamboo clothing.

Comfy, breathable and moisture-wicking, the benefits of bamboo clothing are truly endless. Here are five reasons why men enjoy wearing the wonder fabric over others.

Why men enjoy wearing bamboo clothing

Men's Underwear

1. It’s comfy

When discussing great reasons to wear bamboo clothing, comfort is usually top of the list. Super soft to the touch, wearing bamboo clothing simply makes you feel good. Guys generally don’t want to get caught up in worrying about uncomfortable fabrics just because they’re on trend – this is why bamboo’s luxuriously-soft feel appeals to them so much.

2. It’s breathable

Amongst the most popular bamboo fabric facts is that this wonder fabric is so damn breathable. Tiny micro-gaps in the structure of the bamboo fibres provide ventilation and pull moisture away from the body, allowing the skin to breathe. Ahhh.

3. It’s antibacterial

An antibacterial and antifungal bioagent resides in bamboo, which is handily retained through the process of fabrication. This bioagent also makes bamboo clothing odour-resistant, meaning guys can go about their days without the worry of nasty smells in the office or gym.

4. It’s thermoregulating

Another of the key reasons to choose bamboo fabric is that it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Guys generally like to be practical, so the thermoregulating properties of bamboo clothing greatly appeal to them. Although, it also means there’s no excuse for not exercising, no matter the weather!

5. It doesn’t shrink in the wash

Another of the top reasons to try bamboo clothing. Before giving it a test drive, many guys will be wondering: do bamboo clothes shrink? Well, we’re pleased to confirm that they most definitely don’t. No matter how many times it’s worn or washed, bamboo clothing will maintain its shape.

Why guys love Boody

Aside from all the reasons mentioned above, there are some additional reasons why men can’t get enough of Boody’s bamboo range in particular.

1. We keep it simple

We keep it simple

As touched on earlier, most guys aren’t too fussed about chasing the latest fads. This is what makes Boody the perfect choice – we’re “slow fashion”. We focus on creating simple and timeless everyday essentials that never go out of style. Forget colours and prints that are here one day and gone the next, Boody embraces an easy and minimal approach that guys love.

2. We’re affordable

We're affordable

Despite bamboo clothing gaining more recognition in recent years, the fact that it still bubbles relatively beneath the mainstream means that it’s generally a more expensive choice. Not when it comes to Boody. Our comfy bamboo staples don’t cost the earth, which obviously wins thumbs up from the fellas (and the ladies, for that matter).

3. We’re eco-friendly

We're eco-friendly

These days, both genders are becoming increasingly more conscious of protecting the environment. Although some might argue that the sustainability of clothing might be pretty low down on the list compared to comfort and affordability, it would be making all sorts of assumptions to think that men don’t take this into consideration at all. Especially in 2019.

Our men’s bestsellers

Guys enjoy our entire men’s range, but there are some styles that they love in particular. Check out our current men’s bestsellers.

1. Men’s Boxers

Men's Boxers

A classic style that is always sat firmly at the top of our bestsellers list. There have been many debates as to what’s the best type of underwear for men, and while briefs and trunks both have their fanbases, our trusty Men’s Boxers seem to be the undies of choice for most men. With their seamfree sides, sleek and super-comfy fit and supportive design, it’s clear to see why.

2. Men’s Work / Boot Socks

Men's Work / Boot Socks

Not far behind our boxers is the Men’s Work / Boot Socks. With their thick and comfy bamboo fabric that’s perfect for slipping beneath work and hiking boots, these chunky socks are rightfully a favourite among Boody guys. These socks are given extra points for their thermoregulating and breathability properties.

3. Men’s Crew Neck T-Shirt

Men's Crew Neck T-Shirt

Last but never least, our classic Men’s Crew Neck T-Shirt is a style that proves extremely popular time after time. An ideal foundation to any look, our crew neck tee can be worn alone with jeans or chinos on warmer days and as a base layer when the temperatures drop. Once again, the bamboo fabric’s thermoregulating properties have got you covered.
